Queen Latifah wears Georges Chakra's gown at Academy Awards
Feb '09
After his highly acclaimed Ready to wear show in New York, Chakra continues to climb the ladders of success by signing even more evening dresses for the stars on important occasions such as the Oscars, the Brit Awards and the Grammy Awards.

After traveling to Paris especially to attend Chakra's latest Haute Couture show, the singer-actress Queen Latifah stepped on the red carpet of the 81th Annual Academy Awards – Oscars 2009 wearing a Chakra's gown. The one-shouldered navy duchess satin gown was tailored made with Swarovski-encrusted neckline. Later that evening, Queen Latifah sang on stage also wearing a custom made royal blue gown by Georges Chakra.

On the other hand, American Idol Season 4 winner Carrie Underwood attended the 17th annual Elton John Aids Foundation Oscars party looking amazingly beautiful in Georges Chakra's gown. Her asymmetrical dress in rough silk macramé adorned with flowers and crystal gemstones was chosen from the designer's latest summer 09 couture collection.

In the UK, Cheryl Cole, member of Girls Aloud went for a pure white look signed by Chakra to attend the Brit Awards Ceremony 2009. The short A-line dress delicately embroidered with white flowers contributed in listing Girls Aloud as Brit Awards' best dressed.

As for the pre-Grammy Awards party, Katy Perry selected a lavender short Chakra gown with delicate bedding showcasing wonderfully her feminine silhouette.
