Ever wonder what that model in that 1990s music video looks like today? We do! 

One of our faves is Nicole Bardawil, who starred in Egyptian superstar Amr Diab's "Habibi Ya Nour El Ein."

The song was released in 1996 and was an instant smash hit. Nightclubs in the Arab world, coffee shops and people in their homes still play it to this day.

Nicole won the Miss Lebanon beauty pageant in 1992, but remained a beautiful "queen" to this day.

This is what she looked like then:

Here's a better look at her:

Nicole, who decided to stay away from the spotlight and take care of her family after becoming Lebanon's most beautiful woman twenty years ago, is now a successful businesswoman.

Will she ever return to the spotlight though? That's unlikely, since admitting that "I went into showbiz for fun, I don't seek the spotlight nor does it mean much to me."
