Mariah’s debut concert in the Kingdom made her the first American woman to perform on stage. She took the momentous opportunity to wear a dress from a Kuwaiti designer

On 31 January, songstress Mariah Carey took the stage at Bay La Sun resort in Jeddah's King Abdullah Economic City as the first American female performer to ever perform in the Kingdom. The pop icon stunned the audience in a black sparkly dress by Kuwaiti designer Yousef El-Jasmi. The custom made, floor-length long-sleeve gown dazzled with thousands of encrusted Swarovski crystals.

 

“I feel so honored to have been able to work with Johnny (Wujeck) and Mariah on this project,” said the designer of his collaboration with Mariah and her stylist, posting a picture and video of his gorgeous creation on Instagram.

 

A firm fan of the Khaleeji designer’s work, the 48-year-old pop-star wore Yousef El-Jasmi’s ‘Jasmico’ style on two other occasions and another black fitted dress of his for the 2018 American Music Awards. And, over the past few years, Yousef has become a red carpet favourite with Hollywood A-listers from Chrissy Teigen and Halsey, to Myriam Fares, Haifa Wehbe and Kylie Jenner frequently sporting his designs.
