BEIRUT: Co-host of 2014 Miss USA Giuliana Rancic chose rising Lebanese designer Rani Zakhem for one of her looks at the annual beauty pageant Sunday night.

Rancic, an Italian-American reality TV star and entertainment news host, chose a sky blue gown for her red carpet appearance to Miss USA, which was held this year in Baton Rouge, La. The gown, from Zakhem’s spring-summer 2014 ready-to-wear collection, had deep geometric cutouts.

Relatively young to have broken into Hollywood’s competitive fashion scene, Zakhem started his own brand directly out of university in 2009. He’s seen huge success over the past year dressing several American TV stars and show hosts for big red carpet events.

Also among several ensembles Rancic wore Sunday night was a gown by an Australian designer of Lebanese descent, Steven Khalil.
