Lebanese superstar and fashion icon Haifa Wehbe will bring star power to the first season of Project Runway ME, as she's set to become the first celebrity guest on the show. 

Earlier this week, Lebanon's Red Carpet King, designer Elie Saab, announced a new partnership with MBC Group to bring the Arabic edition of the international fashion reality show to Arabic screens this autumn.

The couturier will lead a team of fashion industry professionals, including Saudi national Faris Al Shehri, Tunisian-Italian fashion icon, actress and TV presenter Afef Jnifen, and a third, rotating coach to mentor some of the region's up and coming Arab designers.  

Haifa was spotted in a glamorous black, off-the-shoulder Elie Saab jumpsuit at the MBC studios in Beirut this week. She later announced to her Instagram followers that she is currently shooting scenes for episode one of PRME.
