Lebanese icon Salwa Katrib may have left this world early, but her vocal charm and signature style still fascinate us to this day.

The singer and actress was first discovered by her brother-in-law, director and composer Romeo Lahoud, with whom she collaborated on several theater plays including the Lebanese adaptation of My Fair Lady dubbed ‘Bint Al Jabal’, and is remembered for her rich discography featuring hit songs like ‘Khedni Ma’ak’, ‘Shou Fi Khalf El Bahr’, ‘Ala Nabeh El Mayi’ and ‘Alouli El Eid’ among others.

Katrib’s classic style was complemented by her slender figure and elegant looks.

And translated well into her album covers.

The singer’s reserved personality was conversely met with a strong, captivating stage presence.

Her immense talent and natural beauty were widely admired by the public and critics alike.

It is even said that prominent Lebanese poet Said Akl once touched her arm after seeing her perform so as to make sure she was real and not a fragment of his imagination.

Lahoud also designed her theatrical costumes.

Large statement earrings were a recurrent staple of her wardrobe.

Her casual style translated as a subtle blend of comfy and chic.

She will always be remembered for her silken voice, exceptional talent, and everlasting poise.
