Georges Hobeika's best red carpet looks as Cardi B wears Lebanese designer for Diamond Ball

The Lebanese designer has dressed the likes of Dakota Fanning and Kim Kardashian

Singer and rapper Cardi B chose a Lebanese designer for the 2019 Diamond Ball.

The star wore a pastel pink Georges Hobeika Fall 2019 Couture gown for the star-studded evening, which took place in New York City on Thursday, September 12.

Cardi B has become known for her experimental red carpet looks, often choosing couture gowns, like the vintage Thierry Mugler look she sported at this year’s Grammy awards.

Georges Hobeika opened his first atelier in Lebanon in 1995, and has been showing at Paris Couture Week since 2001. He is one of a coterie of Lebanese designers to make the biannual trip to the French fashion capital, including Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad and Georges Chakra.

Over the years, his creations have been worn by the likes of Kim Kardashian and Dakota Fanning, while he famously created the dress Olivia Culpo wore when she took the title of Miss Universe back in 2012.
