From cover to cover, this month’s issue of Vogue Arabia is entirely inspired by a tiny but fierce Mediterranean country called Lebanon.
Vogue is calling its June release a Love Letter To Lebanon, dedicating it to the nation’s strength, pride, resilience, and hope.
And who is more fitting as the cover star than Lebanese diva Majida El-Roumi?
This is the first time throughout her career to be featured on the cover of a magazine. It is truly a proud moment to represent her country and her people in a well-deserved (and frankly, long overdue) debut cover.
An all-Lebanese team worked on the cover story of this issue. El-Roumi was styled, photographed by Lebanese geniuses, and dressed in designs by world-famous Lebanese designers Georges Hobeika and Zuhair Murad.
The issue celebrates and uplifts Lebanon during its toughest times. The country is battling the worst economic crisis in recent history and the pandemic only added salt to the wound. But the Lebanese remain strongwilled.
Vogue Arabia’s June release serves as a reminder of Lebanon’s accomplishments. It highlights its place in the worlds of music, fashion, beauty, filming, and its overall cultural influence.
