American actress Sofia Carson wears Lebanese brand at ‘Purple Hearts’ premiere


DUBAI: American singer and actress Sofia Carson paid tribute to her new film ‘Purple Hearts’ on the red carpet by sporting a dark purple dress by Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab at the film’s premiere.

The actress, who stars in the Netflix film, attended the premiere at the Bay Theater in Pacific Palisades, Calif., wearing a dress from Saab’s Fall 2022 collection.

The dress featured a tight pleated purple skirt, as well as a flower embellished bodice with a high collar in black.

The 68-look ready-to-wear collection from which the dress originated was unveiled in Paris in March and was about “strong women, strong characters, a bit of rock ‘n’ roll,” the designer told Vogue US at the time.

So it’s only fitting that the dress was shown off by singer and actress Carson, who is signed to Hollywood Records and has a number of singles under her belt.

The multi-hyphen recently starred in Netflix’s “Purple Hearts,” which tells the story of an aspiring singer-songwriter and soldier who falls in love against all odds.

Despite their many differences, protagonist Cassie, a struggling singer-songwriter, and Luke, a struggling Marine, agree to marry solely for military benefits in the film – but when tragedy strikes, the line between the real and the fake begins to fade.

“My purple heart is full. To infinity and beyond,” Carson posted on Instagram on Saturday, adding a heartfelt note to director Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum that read, “Five years ago we started this journey together. Five years of dreaming, believing, fighting for and creating our world of “Purple Hearts”, hand in hand every step of the way. My heart thanks you forever. We’ve dreamed of this night for five years… My Liz, we made it. And I can’t wait for the world to see the magic you’ve captured.

As well as dressing Hollywood stars on the red carpet, Saab has had a stellar month and recently unveiled its first-ever menswear collection at Paris Haute Couture Week in early July.

The men’s collection was stately and featured royal velvet capes and suits that paired perfectly with the women’s line. The designer stayed true to his style and ensured that the menswear offering was equally opulent with his luxurious embroideries and embellishments.

Inspired by the pearlescent glow of dusk, the designer’s new couture collection was marked by shades of vermilion, rose, metallic gold and deep blue, reflecting the sky as the sun makes its hazy descent for the day. . Shown at the Carreau du Temple in Paris, the dresses rivaled the dramatic surroundings and stood out with their geometric embellishments, feathers, shimmering beads, crystals, gemstones and sequins.
