So, there it is, the top 10. Of course, it’s really hard to have a modelling career for a woman in a country like Egypt where a religion has a major impact on people’s life’s. But these women recognized their potential to be actresses and models and went beyond their religions boundaries to become successful in international levels.

And to me such bold move only made them more confident and beautiful. Now however, with the technology growing so rapidly and laws giving more freedom to women, Egypt have finally embraced its women choosing the career they want and lots of modelling agencies have been established in recent years which can help the beautiful women in Egypt take part in international beauty pageants and make their country proud.
