Lion queen Beyonce champions Lebanese designer

  • The event was based on the theme “A Journey to the Pride Lands”
  • The dramatic custom-made Georges Hobeika ensemble featured a gold-sequined catsuit

Beyonce wore a fierce lioness-themed costume to the Wearable Art Gala in Santa Monica on Saturday, which was created by Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika.

The event was based on the theme “A Journey to the Pride Lands,” inspired by Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of “The Lion King,” in which Beyoncé voices the queen lioness, Nala.

The dramatic custom-made Georges Hobeika ensemble featured a gold-sequined catsuit complete with an embellished bodice boasting the face of a lion. Feathers cascaded over the singer’s shoulders and she donned gold cuffs on each wrist, as well as a shimmering gold cape.

“The iconic @beyonce embodying a fierce lioness for the Wearable Art Gala,” the fashion house proudly captioned a post on Instagram.

Nancy Ajram’s husband breaks silence after murder charge 

DUBAI: Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram’s husband Fadi El-Hachem broke his silence with an Instagram post, after he was charged with the murder of the intruder who broke into their Beirut property on Jan. 5.

The post read: “I love listening to lies when I know the truth.”

Celebrity dentist, El-Hachem, was accused of shooting dead the masked intruder, who broke into their home in the early hours of the morning. The dentist said the assailant was threatening his family — including his three daughters.

El-Hachem’s trial is underway. He met with a judge this week.
