July 15 is Zuhair Murad’s birthday . . . or is it?
It’s very annoying to go looking for someone’s birthday online nowadays and not being able to find a reliable biography that includes a date of birth. I don’t understand what makes people want to keep their birthdays a secret. I think it’s weird.
Anyway, it would make sense to discover that Zuhair Murad is indeed a Cancer. He would share his zodiac sign with a few other designers who show their work alongside the couture and bridal shows. Giorgio Armani is a Cancer. So is Elie Saab. Vera Wang is a Cancer, too. Oscar de la Renta was either a Cancer or a Leo, as well, born within minutes of the transit of the sun from one sign to the next.
Cancer designers tend to “dress” their clients. Even when they’re sending a model down the runway in nude chiffon encrusted with strategically-placed Swarovski crystals, they rarely resort to vulgar displays of skin. Many of them are married to the hourglass silhouette, and that’s another thing that makes them succeed in the bridal industry where the hourglass silhouette and the fitted bodice reign supreme.
So that’s why I believe that today really is Zuhair Murad’s birthday. He fits perfectly into the Cancer designer profile I discuss in “Star Struck Style.” Of course, I could be wrong, but I’m probably not. I’m really, really good at this stuff. Don’t ever forget it.
