She’s currently the Middle East’s most anticipated news anchor, Diana Fakhoury, appearing at 8 pm on MTV at least 4 days a week and the one on the right is one of the most adorned international supermodels of the 80’s and 90’s Cindy Crawford. Cindy put that trademark mole above her lips on the map and now Diana is bringing it back. They may be worlds (and years) apart but put these two beautiful women in the same room and they may be mistaken for long-lost sisters. Don’t you think?
I was lucky enough to share this post with the always lovely Diana Fakhoury on Twitter @diana_fakhoury and here’s what she thinks of this post

I think it’s safe to assume that we all very much remember Gwen Stefani’s hit “Rich Girl” featuring Eve and her Harajuku Girls as they danced and pranced around a pirate ship. World famous director David LaChapelle would be interested to learn that his video and concepts were so ludicrously stolen by a Lebanese singer that goes by the name of Nelly Makdessi in her video for a song called Ya Dada. The Lebanese music industry has been notorious for directly ripping off internationally renowned artist’s video without the slightest attempt to conceal them, some of you may still recall how this Lebanese artist who stole direct scenes from Britney Spears’ Toxic Video. This growing “borrowing” trend makes one wonder how stupid these artists must consider their audiences to either assume that a) the audience has never been exposed to international pop videos or b) the audience simply wouldn’t notice.
Having made that point and if you have some time to kill, check out the audacity of this video and screen shots and compare them to Gwen Stefani’s (posted below) and decide for yourself, coincidence or yet another case of downright theft?
p.s. keep a lookout for an arab Johnny Depp who also makes an appearance
And now for the full-videos
Once a cheater always a cheater? This means that a man that’s strayed is never capable of true redemption, he’ll always go back to his old ways, one day. I’m not sure I support this statement 100% but what I do know is that A LOT of Lebanese men cheat on their women for reasons that are beyond me. I’ve had many conversations with male friends and acquaintances that have openly and proudly might I add, boasted about their extracurriculars. Some are married, others in long-term relationships about to get married, but that never stopped them, if anything, it gave them more of a push to cheat.
Mazen and Sandra seem like your average couple, she’s a well-educated pretty girl from a “good” family and he’s a very good looking guy who’s just taken over his family business. Together, they look so happy and in-love. She’s given him her all and he knows it. But Mazen has a dark little secret; he spends the rest of his free time trying to hook-up with every easy target he can find at a bar for a short-lived cheap thrill. If you confront him he’ll tell you he’s head over heels about Sandra, he even plans on marrying her one day but he’s young (29) and wants to live his life to the full without the risk of losing her. He somehow tries to legitimatize his cheating by overly-proclaiming his undying love for her.
Sandra would be devastated if she found out. But eventually like many others in her shoes he would convince her that it was a onetime thing and he would NEVER go there again. She’d give him that second chance and he’d be grateful for a while, but he’ll also learn to become more careful.Yes, many cheaters are repeat offenders, but what do you think, can a cheater ever be trusted again?

Or they may share the same plastic surgeon. Now before we accuse Nicole of stealing new IT girl Lana Del Rey’s look, we gotta be fair- Nicole had this look way before Lana appeared on the international scene. But the resemblance between the two is striking! What do you think, could these two be long lost sisters?
