Lebanon’s first beauty queens

I was surprised to find these old photos of Miss Lebanon 1930 Leila Zoghbi as I never knew Lebanon had any beauty queens prior to the sixties!

Upon searching further, I also found we had two other beauty queens from 1935, Samia Baroudi, and 1955, Hanya Beydoun. But while there was no photos of Samia Baroudi, I found a couple of photos for Hanya Beydoun from Miss Universe in Long Beach, California.

The first photo shows her standing next to Miss Israel back then, and in the second photo wearing Lebanese traditional clothing (first to the right).
