Lebanese Haute Couture on CNN

hmmmm....we'd like to think that CNN's George Webster has been reading BetLZ...
not only did he write the article about Zuhair Murad (which we posted yesterday) just a day after our Zuhair Murad post, but he JUST wrote and article for CNN titled "The glamorous world of Lebanese haute couture" in which he focuses on Zuhair Murad, Reem Acra and Elie Saab.

Some highlights:

"Perhaps better known for conflict than high fashion, the tiny cosmopolitan nation of Lebanon has recently produced a dazzling crop of designers who have been getting noticed far outside the country's borders."

"The Beirut-based designer [Zuhair Murad] acknowledges his country's unexpected presence on the global fashion scene, which he attributes in part to its position on the map.

"I think the geographic location of Lebanon on the Mediterranean Sea helps the Lebanese designer to travel abroad and present their collections all over the world," he told CNN."

We're on to you George Webster!!

While we're at it, look at this photo just snapped of Gwyneth Paltrow in Elie Saab at the Laureus World Sports Awards in Abu Dhabi. I. WANT. THAT. DRESS.

Good job Gwynnie, good job.

You know what? While we're at it, why don't you read this New York Times article about Elie Saab's new autumn/winter collection (seems a bit early no?). Well apparently, he's going all-black--no color? What? Well if ES is doing it we trust him.
