Australian Lebanese model Jessica Kahawaty announced her collaboration with Italian luxury fashion label Versace this week, saying: “I’m finally a Versace girl!”
The actress, humanitarian and entrepreneur took to Instagram to announce that she has teamed up with the brand, saying: “I’ve been wanting to work with Versace for years. “
“It’s a brand that speaks to my 90s baby self, a brand that never gave into fade or trends, one that remained true to its Italian ethos of family, togetherness, heritage and authenticity,” she added. The model shared outfit inspiration for Eid Al-Fitr from the brand’s latest collection with her 1.3 million followers on Instagram. Her first look was a yellow and gold jumpsuit and matching scarf emblazoned with the brand’s Barocco print. Her second look featured a pink figure-hugging mermaid style dress that had a matching cape that wrapped around the neck. Her ensembles were accessorized with gold chunky chains and pointy-toed heels.
Kahawaty has worked with top-notch brands like Tod’s, Prada, Boucheron, Chloe and more. In February, she teamed up with Italian luxury label Gucci. She also walked for Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika during Paris Haute Couture Week in January wearing a voluminous satin gown in blue with an embroidered floor-length coat.
When Jessica is not modeling, she can be found setting up charitable endeavors — evidenced most recently in her support for people in Sudan and those who were affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria that happened in February.
