Lingerie Show at Mzaar (ex Faraya)

Faraya IntercontinentalUnder a blue sky and sunny weather, an outdoors lingerie show has been organzied on the Refuge terrace of the InterContinental Mzaar Lebanon Mountain Resort and Spa. Models in G-strings and lacy bras shivered from the cold as they strutted the catwalk at the foot of snow-covered slopes in Lebanon to promote Middle East’s largest ski resort. The fashion extravaganza aimed to lure visitors to the country’s six winter resorts whose fortunes have gone downhill since last year’s Israeli offensive, a political and economic crisis — and even inclement weather.

A sea of cameras focused on lingerie-clad models parading on the terrace of the five-star Mzaar Hotel nested amid the snowy peaks of the Mzaar (ex Faraya-Mzaar) resort northeast of Beirut. Before a *very* interested audience, several models have presented the most daring collections for summer 2008.
