Lebanese songstress Nancy Ajram has been chosen to appear as the guest of honor at a top fashion festival in Dubai next month.
Ajram will appear at the “A World of Fashion” Festival in the Mall of the Emirates, from Oct. 3-14.
The event will feature 20 Fall/Winter 2013 fashion shows by renowned international designers, according to a released statement.
The pop singer, who was previously been named one of the region’s most influential people by the Arabic edition of Newsweek, will make an appearance to meet and greet fans, as well as one of the festival’s competition winners.
Earlier this year, Ajram became a new judge on season two of Arab Idol, a contest which captivated millions of viewers.
In a red carpet interview with Al Arabiya English in July, Ajram, who arrived in a Chanel couture gown accessorized with a Chanel pearl necklace, said that she has plans to tour the United States in October.
The Lebanese singer released her first album at the age of 15. However, her career took off with the release of her song “Akhas-mak-ah” in her third album.
In 2004, Ajram achieved pop icon status with her album “Ah w Noss,” including the hit singles “Ah w Noss,” “Lawn Ouyounak” and “Inta Eih.”
Shortly after that, she was made Coca-Cola’s spokesperson for the Arab world.
