Reem Acra

First time I heard of Reem Acra was when Eva Longoria showed up on the red carpet few years back in That Dress!

It was hard not to take notice.

Reem Acra is a true representative of classical Lebanese school of OTT design, much like Zuhair Murad and Ellie Saab. She piles it all on - silks, taffeta, lace, Swarovski crystals.  I find her partiality to fishtails, sweetheart necklines, tight bodices and voluminous skirts a bit too much.  Hollywood eats it up though:

This is rather unexpected for Reem Acra.  JLo owns it!

Here is her Resort 2013 line. I read on that this is her attempt to appeal to younger customers.  Can you imagine yourself wearing these dresses on a resort? If yes, then which resort?

I missed the posts too! But you know what, I am often surprised at what people wear to resorts. I always feel very under-dressed!

Hey sparkly!
Well, yes, in Dubai ppl tend to dress to the nines in general, but I don't think it's the case in Europe and I know for sure in States it's short&t-shirts all the way.
Come to think of it, in my home country of Azerbaijan girls put on quite a show on the sea resorts too.
