Gal Gadot in an Elie Saab Dress Prompts Backlash

Stars Shine on the Blue Carpet

Gadot was wearing the dress to the National Board of Review awards in New York Thursday, where she and director Patty Jenkins received the Spotlight Award for their work on "Wonder Woman".

Lebanese fashion brand Elie Saab has been slammed for sharing a photo of Israeli actress Gal Gadot wearing a blue sash dress from its collection.

The Instagram page for Saab's brand posted a photo of Gadot in the gown on Wednesday, calling her "flawless".

Lebanese Journalist Heba Bitar wrote in Arabic that she loves Saab, but wondered "Why does it mean so much that an Israeli actress wore a dress from him?"

Gadot is an Israeli actress and former Israel Defense Forces combat trainer.

More than 60 Israeli soldiers and six Israeli civilians were also killed in the conflict. Someone told her that his three-year-old saw the movie, and when the movie ended, the boy said, "When I grow up, I want to be a woman!"

The country's Ministry of Economy issued the ban just before the film was scheduled to premiere. Lebanon and Israel have been hostile to each other since 1948.

Gadot then brings it back to reality, and the challenges she has faced, noting that although Hollywood seems progressive, we're not there yet in terms of total equality.

It was blocked by the government because of the star's nationality and her support for Israel's army, it was reported at the time.

Gadot added that when she began her career, there were very few female-led films, and even fewer female directors.
