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.

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?
I think she looks beautiful, masha'Allah, in the abaya. %100 glam.

looks so elegant in her abaya. Simplicity is best.
