She's typically spotted on the Victoria's Secret catwalk or fashion week runways, but supermodel Elsa Hosk will be strutting her stuff in this part of the world later this month.

The Swedish star, who has worked with the likes of Dior and Dolce & Gabbana, will be attending this year's JamaloukiCon, organisers have announced.

The fashion and beauty-focused event is held in Beirut, and will take place between June 27 and 29 at the city's Seaside Arena.

It has not yet been revealed what Hosk, 30, will be doing at the festival, but fans can likely expect some sort of public appearance, Q&A or meet and greet.

This year marks the third edition of JamaloukiCon, which has previously brought supermodels Sara Sampaio and Izabel Goulart to Lebanon.

While the full itinerary for the conference is yet to be released, the event has teased some of its notable 2019 attendees on its Instagram page.

Lebanese fashion influencer Lana El Sahely is expected to make a return visit, while singer and actress Cyrine Abdelnour and style blogger Negin Mirsalehi have been confirmed to appear.

According to JamaloukiCon's social media, influencers Nathalie Fanj, Alice Abdel Aziz and Rym Saidi Breidy will also feature on the schedule, as well as Egyptian singer Lara Scandar and Miss Lebanon 2015 winner, Valerie Abou Chacra.

Early bird tickets for the event are currently on sale for $10 (Dh37) for three-day entry, with the festival taking place between 3pm and 10pm each day.

Aside from celebrity appearances, JamaloukiCon will also host beauty masterclasses, pop-up shops and fashion shows.
