Malaysian born singer-songwriter Yunalis Mat Zara’ai continues to solidify her position as an international fashion icon after she was spotted rubbing shoulders with A-listers at Paris Fashion Week.
The Kedah-born songstress shared Instagram and Twitter photos of her striking poses with US rapper Cardi B and K-pop star Jennie Kim of BLACKPINK fame at the recent Chanel runway show, provoking the admiration and envy of Malaysians.
“I’m still over the moon. I can’t believe that I got invited to Chanel’s Spring Summer 2020 show.
“I got to go to Paris, wear a gorgeous outfit, go see a stunning show, meet wonderful people, and have a great time,” she wrote on Instagram.
Yuna was dressed to the nines in a glamorous red coat, duo-toned ankle boots, and a black belt with the Chanel logo to cinch the waist.
Earlier last month, she was seen attending several shows at New York Fashion Week where she was dressed by US designer Badgley Mischka.
A week later, she announced that she had inked a deal with top modelling and talent agency Wilhelmina Models, which also represents the likes of Nicki Minaj, Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, and Shawn Mendes.
Founded in New York City in 1967 by Dutch supermodel Wilhelmina Cooper, the agency is one of the most prominent in the fashion world.
Yuna became famous when her music on Myspace received over one million plays.
Her success alerted the Indie-Pop label/management company and she was signed on with Fader Label in early 2011.
Yuna is known for her collaboration with Usher on her breakout single, Crush which peaked at number 3 on the US Billboard Adult R&B chart.
The singer started writing songs at the age of 14 and she taught herself how to play the guitar.
In 2006, in need of a creative outlet while attending law school, she performed for an audience for the first time. -/TISG
