Elie Saab to design Ahlam's wedding dress
UAE singer Ahlam was recently spotted in Lebanon on a very important visit in preparation for her wedding day. The singer is having her wedding dress especially made by the international Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab, despite the fact that she is used to working with other Lebanese designers for other occasions.
According to the London based Elaph, Ahlam headed to Cairo afterward to shoot a new music video from one of the song in her latest album that was released recently. Ahlam is scheduled to hold a celebration for the release of her new album in Beirut, but after her wedding.
Upon her arrival at Cairo airport, Ahlam refused to undergo a routine checkup for SARS that is done on all tourists and locals coming into Egypt. Ahlam created a big commotion at the airport that resulted in an argument with the on duty doctor Jihan Abdul Ghani, who told the head doctor at the airport to prohibit Ahlam from entering the country.
As a result of the fight that broke out, airport security rushed to the scene and convinced Ahlam to obey procedures. The lawsuit against Ahlam was dropped the minute she underwent the routine checkup, which she only underwent after 30 minutes of endless arguing with officials.
It was revealed that Egyptian director Yousif Shahin and Egyptian actress Yusra were on the plane coming from Beirut that Ahlam arrived on. The two underwent the necessary procedure for the SARS checkup without creating any commotion.
Ahlam has recently announced her wedding date to Mubarak Al Hajiri to be on the 15 of June 2003, taking place most probably in Qatar. The singer has also revealed that her new residence will also be in Qatar since its where her to-be husband is from. –Albawaba.com
