When the name of Lebanon is mentioned, we think of a country that borders Israel and that is torn with strife, sectarianism and war. In 1982, the country was almost torn apart in its seams by a bloody civil war. What people often overlook is that Lebanon is home to some of the most beautiful women in the world. The singer Enrique Iglesias was reportedly so smitten with the country’s women that he constantly flirted with his audience when he staged a concert there. When an Arab publication conducted a survey of the 50 most beautiful female Arab celebrities, more than half that came out on top were Lebanese.
Here now is the top 10 most beautiful women celebrities in Lebanon.
