DUBAI: American superstar Jennifer Lopez set trends with her honeymoon looks this week – and championed an Arab designer in the process.
The singer and actress tied the knot with actor Ben Affleck on July 17 in Las Vegas after the celebrity couple rekindled a romance nearly 20 years after they first met.
The couple are honeymooning in Paris, where Lopez has been spotted several times in shoes by Lebanese shoe designer Andrea Wazen.
The ‘Marry Me’ actress, who celebrated her 53rd birthday this week, was seen strolling outside the Louvre Museum in Paris wearing a bright pink dress which she paired with Wazen’s Antigone platforms which are nude and feature sheer strap detailing.
The heels measure 15 cm and are made of nappa leather.
The JLo Beauty founder wore the same shoes to one of the couple’s first dinner parties during their honeymoon at Le Matignon restaurant, which faces the Marigny Theater Gardens in France.
She teamed the heels with a flowing red dress and had her hair tied in a high bun.
The Lebanese cobbler’s platforms seem to be popular as Lopez also owns a pair of Wazen’s Antigone PVC in black.
She wore dark shoes, which she paired with a black dress from Italian brand Forte Forte, while dining at Manko restaurant.
The “Jenny from the Block” singer also wore the black pair last year to her 52nd birthday which she celebrated on a yacht with Affleck.
The Lebanese fashion label took to Instagram to share some of the star’s honeymoon looks. “Spending our days with #Bennifer in Paris. Don’t we love seeing @jlo in love and wearing her PVC Antigone!? We wish you the best happy birthday @jlo,” the label wrote on Instagram.
Lopez isn’t the only celebrity fan of Wazen’s Antigone heels.
American actress Megan Fox also wore the Beirut-based shoemaker’s platforms to the premiere of her latest film “Good Mourning” in May.
Since their launch in 2013, the brand’s strappy sandals and stilettos have made their way onto the pedicured toes of stars and it-girls around the world, including Beyonce, Hailey Bieber, Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Addison Rae , who have all championed Wazen’s creations.
The new bride has an affinity for Arab designers. In fact, one of her wedding dresses was designed by Lebanese fashion designer Zuhair Murad, with whom she has worked on several occasions.
