    Not to be mean but I am unsure why she or Gigi Hadid are supermodels I think their looks are average at best. I truly believe there are much prettier girls in the middle east than these.

    She could pass for Lebanese

      No, she looks typically European so as her DNA. Lebanese people are very Middle Eastern and West Asian looking, only those with high plastic surgeries (like the celebrities) done to fix their noses are the ones who could pass for Europeans. Lebanese are known for their long prominent noses

    She could pass for a Lebanese

    Such a mature looking serious face. Must be the cheekbones and expression. She looked 25-30 ever since she was a teenager. Not an insult, she looks quite dignified.
