The Lebanese Murex D'or awards also known as the Golden Murex awards did not sneak by unnoticed this year, not completely shadowed by the political turmoil and drama afflicting the region as a whole. Instead, the Murex D'or of 2012  contained a healthy amount of the usual red-carpet fuss and hot gossip.
These Lebanese awards of pan-Arab recognition in the realm of film and the arts have been running since 2000 in the Lebanese capital in honor of the 'Phoenecian' root of the purple-dyed name.
The stars and the fans, critics and media were all a-go with talk of the celebs who showed up in all their glamor and glitz , to those that were no-shows, and those that were pregnant and proud . Also present were the necessary dress faux pas and the explicit competition between stars trying to out-do each other in beauty and diva-factor.
Any comments on any of the best dressed/ worse dressed celebs or achievements of the Arab stars at Murex?
