The Everlasting Star: SABAH

Even at 87, Sabah didn’t stop dazzling the audience with her great sense of fashion and her daring choices of colors, fabrics, styles and designers. She will always be remembered as a fashionista with bold choices that made her a worldwide renowned star.

At the time Sabah rose as a young star of the gold black and white screen, fashion choices were limited. Colorful, sparkling, and above all expectations, Sabah was always glamorous. In the 70s, Sabah made a scandal when she wore tiny shorts on stage. She was considered a fashion icon in the Middle-East and abroad.

Sabah collaborated with many famous fashion designers like William Khoury, Robert Abi Nader, Ella Zahlan, Zuhair Murad and Nabil Younes. She was an inspiration for many fashion designers like Ella Zahlan and Sarah’s bag. Many designers owe Sabah their success who was always generous towards them. She never gave importance to a designer’s fame: she only wore what made her beautiful, happy and shining.

Fashion tip from Sabah: Whatever you are wearing, don’t forget to add your smile because it’s what makes a woman truly beautiful.
