UNN Modeling Agency On the Rise

Published

Modeling Industry is on the rise

Modeling has always been around for decades and has evolved in many different ways. Egypt, on the other hand, is known to have been quite a conservative country with minor changes over the year. Which is why everyone, and I mean everyone, is talking about UNN Model Management and how it’s defying the Egypt norms and expanding all over the globe!

UNN is an ancient Nubian word meaning rebirth — .

Not only is UNN the first certified modeling agency in Egypt that was established in 2018,  it is also considered a movement that focuses on self-expression, freedom, and defying against the laws of gravity. UNN is a community that hires young talented people who are capable of representing themselves thus representing the organizations main motive: to stand out and break down socially constructed beauty standards.

News about this agency immediately sky rocketed the roof and was booming almost instantly! Hundreds of aspiring models filled out their applications and were eager to start working with them. Iman el Deeb, the founder of UNN Models, is a well know model on all social media platforms which again sheds light on the purpose behind all of this by being heard and recognized.

For some reason, young adults and the youth especially are convinced that there are certain ways you should look or dress, which is why UNN is going places with a new vision, to show people that everyone is beautiful in their own way. Top models such as Yasmine Hany and Sherouk Farid have already been relocated to Milan and Barcelona!

On the other hand, UNN caused a bit of a conflict whereas some people believe that it goes against our social norms and even religion because some of their photos include partial nudity. That didn’t stop Iman from standing up for what she believes in and even attending Cairo Photo Week 2019 openly speaking about her journey and her purpose.

Proof of Iman’s success is portrayed in the various campaigns and TV interviews. The models are always working with top notch brands as well as appearing in magazines like Vogue Arabia, Vogue Italia, and Harpers Bazaar!

UNN shows you how it is absolutely easy to make your dreams come to life and achieve everything you want in the world. Egypt is on the rise with people that have so much potential to create and is definitely going places. 2020, make miracles happen.

Dina El Sherbiny Under Fire For Wearing a Revealing Dress in Riyadh

Published

Dina El Sherbiny has caused a storm of controversy in Saudi Arabia after showing up to the Joy Awards, that was held last night in Riyadh, wearing a revealing single-arm dress.

The young actress was accompanying her partner Amr Diab to the awards ceremony for support, and the couple certainly turned heads but it was El-Sherbiny’s look that angered many.

The actress appeared in a short black dress, single-armed and exposed, people of Saudi Arabia quickly took it to social media to criticize her poor choice of clothing and accused her of lack of decency.

It’s true that women in Saudi Arabia are obliged to wear abayas, and even though celebrities don’t really have to conform with this rule, many prefer to cover up as a sign of respect to their rules.

The attacks are continuing with some complaining that rules are only applied on Saudi women, others are accusing her of disrespecting their traditions and rules.

Others demanded from chairperson of the GEA Turki Al-Sheikh, to have the same rules applied on Dina and to prevent her from entering the Kingdom again…

We’ll see how this goes, and hope that citizens calm down soon.
