Hours ago, Sally Greige, 24, was crowned as Miss Lebanon 2014. She was actually one of the strong contenders who spoke about women’s rights. She is also majoring in Civil Engineering
Sally goes home as the lucky winner of more than $500,000 in prizes including an apartment and a car.
Sally, along with the 13 other contenders was dressed exclusively by Lebanese and International designer Zuhair Murad. The event was hosted by TV Journalist Dima Sadek who also donned a monochrome number by the designer.
Superstar Nancy Ajram preformed two songs on stage in two different looks, the first in Dolce and Gabbana and for the second one she wore a low cut Elie Saab number
But Twitter really exploded when former Miss Lebanon 2013 Karen Ghrawi made her final appearance on stage with the crown and then took and terrible slip and fall on stage. It must have been horrifying as she seemed visibly distraught with the ordeal and she struggled to overcome it.The video has gone viral since, you can watch it by clicking here
As for the contestant levels this year and since this IS a beauty pageant where we can openly judge women based on their looks, I have to say it was definitely a big improvement from last year but still managed to maintain a very average level of contestants (both aesthetically and intellectually) that will not allow Lebanon to compete or stand a real chance at Miss Universe, though I thought that out of the bunch Sally Greige deserved the win.
But what do you think will Sally Greige become just another forgettable beauty queen or will she join the ranks of Joelle Behlok, Georgina Rizk, Dina Azar, Nadine Njeim and other beauties who have left their marks on the scene?
