Despite Lebanon’s current presidential void, we’re still hoping for a fashion forward first lady. Last week we took a closer look at Sethrida Geagea, wife of presidential candidate Samir Geagea. This week, Rima Karkafi Frangieh is on our fashion radar, wife of presidential hopeful and Marada party leader Sleiman Frangieh.
Rima is Sleiman’s second wife and mother of his youngest child Vera. Before wedding Frangieh in 2003, Rima worked as a TV presenter at the Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation (LBC) for seven years. Prior to that Rima who hails from an Iraqi mother and Lebanese father lived and attended university in Sydney after fleeing the war in Lebanon. Rima is most known for her social activism most notably in the North where she resides and volunteers her time to various charity causes and is the President of Ehdeniyat International Festival as well as the North Autism center.
In spite of her husband’s somewhat bleak chances of becoming president, there’s no denying Rima’s first lady material. With her feminine style and signature hair Rima will add a dainty allure to the presidential palace. We have no doubt she’ll be able to hold her ground amongst the world’s most fashionable first ladies.
Take a look at Rima Frangieh’s most fashionable moments.
