Mouna Ayoub

Mouna Ayoub (Arabic: منى أيوب‎) (born on February 27, 1957 in Kuwait) is a well-known French socialite and businesswoman of Christian Lebanese origin. Frequently in the media, she is often a guest of the Cannes film festival and makes headlines in French gossip magazines. At the age of 20 she converted to Islam in order to marry Nasser Al-Rashid, a 40 year old businessman and adviser to King Fahd. After eighteen years of marriage, and according to her divorce agreements, she left Saudi Arabia and built a fortune by investing in real estate. She talked about her marriage in her 2000 book La Vérité.

In 1997, she bought a boat from Bernard Tapie, the Phocéa, for €5.56 million to which was added €18.25 million worth of work. To pay for this work Mouna sold a number of her jewels including one of the largest yellow diamonds of the world (112.53 carats (22.51 g)) for a price of €2.52 million (16.5 million francs) and a Bulgari necklace for 15.3 million francs. Mouna Ayoub has owned since the beginning of the 1980s the largest private collection of haute couture, composed of more than 10,000 items, which she continues to add to each season. In 2004, Arabian Business magazine ranked her 45th richest Arab with wealth estimated at $380 million.
