Israeli s Gal Gadot flaunts Lebanese brand, sparks row

New York Jan 12 (IANS) Lebanese fashion brand Elie Saab faced backlash for sharing a photograph of Israeli actress Gal Gadot wearing a dress from its collection.



The "Wonder Woman" wore a blue sash dress by the designer for the National Board of Review Awards Gala here earlier this week.

Elie Saab s Instagram page then posted an image of Gadot with a description of the "flawless" actress in the brand s Ready-to-Wear Spring Summer 2018.

Since there are tensions between Israel and Lebanon the post immediately sparked a backlash online before being removed altogether reports dailymail.co.uk.

A Lebanese journalist Heba Bitar commented on social media: "I love and respect Elie Saab but is he really happy an Israeli actress wore a dress he designed?

Another social media user wrote: "I m not gonna ask why would she wear Elie Saab... but I m asking why would his team post it? Unacceptable!"

Last year Gadot s superhero film "Wonder Woman" was banned from Lebanese cinemas.

Gadot had served for two years in the Israeli army as a combat trainer and Lebanon s Ministry of Economy issued the ban just before the film was scheduled to premiere.

It was reportedly blocked by the government because of the star s nationality and her support for Israel s army.
