Miss Lebanon Australia’s beauty and art director, Monie Gabriel, told The Sydney Morning Herald that the contestants are an example of the “new Arab woman.”

“It has been the perception that Lebanese women often married young and concentrated on having children, but these days as you can see, the women are doing everything,” said Gabriel.

The winner of this year’s pageant, Cynthia Farah, will travel to Beirut to compete in the Miss Lebanon World pageant with women from over 20 countries. Also attending the bash was our very own comedian Won ho Chung.
