Lebanese designer takes Gal Gadot photo off Instagram after backlash

The "Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot, who was honoured with the #SeeHer award at the.

Heba Bitar, a correspondent for Lebanese-based television channel Al Mayadeen, tweeted: "I love and respect Elie Saab, but is he really happy an Israeli actress wore a dress he designed?"

The image of Gadot, who starred in last year's action thriller "Wonder Woman", in a blue sash dress by Saab was accompanied by a description of the former Israel Defense Forces combat trainer as "flawless", the BBC on Friday reported.

Despite being erased, the Lebanese Twitter-sphere didn't forget the photo's brief existence and users continued to criticize the designer for his public praise of Gadot.

The Isreali actor was presented with the prestigious award, which recognises women who push the boundaries in entertainment, for her performance in Wonder Woman.

Gadot's speech highlighted the fact that Wonder Woman was meant to inspire everyone.

Gadot wore Saab's dress to the National Board of Review awards where she received the Spotlight award for her work in the 2017 superhero movie "Wonder Woman". Gal completed her look with black strappy heels and red nail polish for a minimal yet glamorous aesthetic. With a range of options from the likes of Forever Unique and Lanvin, there's something to suit every budget. The actress noted that although there seems to be some progress, there's still a long way to go.

A fashion designer and an actress have become the unwitting faces of the political conflict between Lebanon and Israel. It was reportedly blocked by the government because of the star's nationality and her support for Israel's army. Now, when I started acting, there were very few female-led movies, and even fewer female directors.
