Grammy award-winning artist Katy Perry made an appearance this weekend on Xfinity TV wearing Middle Eastern designer SemSem.

The Firework signer was every bit the sartorial songstress in Bazaar’s trend of the week: red and blue.

Perry wore the striped jacket embellished with bejewelled buttons from SemSem’s resort 2018 collection as a dress. She paired it with a pair of white pumps and her signature pink pixie crop.

Former Bazaar Best Dressed alumna and wife of the UAE’s ambassador to the USA, Abeer Al Otaiba, founded SemSem back in 2014 and quickly won fans like Emily Blunt, Blake Lively, Saoirse Ronan and Gigi Hadid.

The Egyptian-born designer was inspired by Marella Agnelli’s Italian style for resort 2018. “The looks were styled with structured, asymmetrical turbans representing the strong devotion to my Middle Eastern heritage,” says Abeer on the collection.

The Dhs8,265 striped jacket is available at Bloomingdale’s Dubai and Kuwait, The Modist and Ounass.
