I spotted a picture of Christian Louboutin on Le Gray Beirut’s Facebook page. I don’t know what he’s doing here exactly but he posted a picture of Elissa kissing him and complimenting her “soft singing” lips. I wish he had asked her what the hell happened to those lips? Specially the upper lip?
Haifa’s sexy dress has made it all the way to the Figaro website who’s claiming that Abou Bakr al-Baghdadi is upset and wants to blow up Star Academy.
I had no clue ISIS members were allowed to watch Star Academy haha!
I don’t like Haifa but she can do whatever she wants and wear any dress she likes. Those who don’t like such dresses can switch to Tiji or the Disney channel. Claiming that Haifa crossed the line and disrespected women by wearing a sexy dress is pure ignorance. I wish Arabs (men and women) would react the same way to daily violations and malpractices against Arab women instead of focusing on Haifa’s ass (It looks better than Kim’s ass that’s for sure).
Moreover and like Dana said, I’ve seen girls wearing similar and even more provocative dresses at night clubs in Beirut and their pictures showing in magazines yet no one complained about it.
Dana Khairallah, a Lebanese lifestyle blogger, says that people kicked up a fuss about this outfit because of an ongoing struggle within Arab culture. “They think if women dress this way it would misrepresent our culture,” she says. “I find that hypocritical. I see Arab girls dressing more provocatively in clubs but no one cares because there are no cameras.”
“There’s also an element of social media meanness in what is happening that drives this bullying of celebrities.” she adds.
That’s the V from Bulgari though.

France24 filmed an episode in Beirut with Lebanon and one of the world’s best fashion designers, Elie Saab. You don’t know need to know much about fashion to appreciate Saab’s work and the fact that he dressed the likes of Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Jane Fonda, Sandra Bullock, Emma Watson, Katy Perry, Meryl Streep and many other celebrities. For those interested, you can get an Elie Saab degree now at LAU.
On another note, I was wondering what that new exhibit at the Beirut Souks meant, now I do thanks to this report.

Some Dubai-based website called anaZahra shared and sponsored a post on Facebook about Maya Diab with a picture of Angelina Jolie showing. Fi kteer chabah
The 2013 Fantasy Bra was worn by Victoria’s Secret Angel 23-year-old South African model Candice Swanepoel and cost $10 million dollars. These two new fantasy bras which were made by Lebanese jewelers Mouawad cost each two million dollars.
I don’t know how many of you are familiar with My Luxury Outlet, but I know a lot of girls (and very few guys) who wait for this special sale week to go and buy stuff there. The only reason why I know about this shop is because it’s located on the Mar Nicolas stairs and every time I go to Gemmayze I see it. MLO is part of the Holdal Abou Adal group and is a multi-brand outlet store that sells luxury brands such as Lancel, Longchamp, Fratelli Rossetti, Kipling, S.T.Dupont and others. A friend was telling me yesterday how people go crazy over these sales and that once she saw a couple of ladies fighting over a bag.
I love S.T. Dupont wallets and I currently carry one, so I might as well pass by and see if I can find a new one at a good price. Maybe if I am lucky, a couple of customers will fight over a bag and I will film the whole thing haha!
Here’s a [link] to their Facebook page.
I didn’t know much about Oscar De La Renta until he died and I didn’t even notice he was the one who designed Amal Alameddine’s wedding dress even though I did write about the wedding and posted pictures even. In all cases, I was reading about him a bit and I ran a quick search to see which Lebanese wore Oscar de la Renta dresses and found Elissa, Haifa and Amal. There’s also Shakira if you consider her somehow Lebanese lol!
I am sure there are others but those are the ones I found with the help of my good friend Serah.
