Gal Gadot Sparks Row by Flaunting a Lebanese Brand

Gal Gadot Sparks Row by Flaunting a Lebanese Brand

Lebanese fashion brand Elie Saab faced backlash for sharing a photograph of Israeli actress Gal Gadot wearing a dress from its collection.

The "Wonder Woman" wore a blue sash dress by the designer for the National Board of Review Awards Gala here earlier this week.

Elie Saab's Instagram page then posted an image of Gadot, with a description of the "flawless" actress in the brand's Ready-to-Wear Spring Summer 2018.

Since there are tensions between Israel and Lebanon, the post immediately sparked a backlash online before being removed altogether, reports dailymail.co.uk.

A Lebanese journalist Heba Bitar commented on social media: "I love and respect Elie Saab, but is he really happy an Israeli actress wore a dress he designed?'
