Princess Series: H.R.H Shiekha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned of Qatar

Sunday, July 6, 2008

Qatar has a hijabi-fashionista in Her Royal Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser Al Missned---this woman totally rocked red Gaultier Couture at Bastille Day in Paris and in hijab outshone the perrenially-chick Parisians. Okay, so her turban-esque pill-box hats are not perfect hijab (her ears and neck AND hairline often show and some of her suits are fitted) but at least she is making a gesture towards hijab and I think that is beneficial for her people. She is also not afraid to be photographed in abaya, and this I also find good for myself. She is not one of those princesses who are saying hijab is only for the visit the masjid. She knows it is an Islamic requirement enough to not reject it before her people. Maybe Vogue will never picture this lady as it has done Rania of Jordan, but I want to.

even though she isn't 100% hijabified, it's great to see that she is still fashionable but extremely modest. As a leader of an Islamic Nation i think it would be better for her to be covered properly, as she is in the public eye and therefore an instant role model for muslimahs.
but all in all i think she looks great and very stylish...

by the way i think she looks best in the black abaya. its so classy and stylish...
i think it really is the islamic version of the western classic little black dress.

I think she is looks the best in the abaya. Did u know that one of her sons has refused to be seen with her because she goes against the traditional Qatari custom of not being veiled properly?

Honestly, she looks so elegant in her abaya. Simplicity is best.

Mash'allah, a woman with class.
