The Desert Rose

Here is a woman who doesn't buy designer clothes, instead she designs the clothes she wears. 
Talk about creativity!

You might not recognize this wonderful woman, but she is taking the world by storm with her strong features, unbelievable intelligence and powerful fashion sense. She is Sheika Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned, wife of the Emir of Qatar.
Her royal title has carried her to many countries to meet Presidents, Queens and the like including Queen Sofia of Spain, President Barack Obama and many more. At each meeting, she never fails to wear something fashion-forward and elegant, giving us all inspiration regardless of style, age or ethnicity.

 Turbans are incredibly chic and even better when paired with statement jewelry.

Sheika Mozah must keep her hair covered and she does so quite fashionably with turbans, reminding us all that Middle Eastern women have been rocking the trend long before it was seen on the Spring 2011 runways. It is a glamorous way to keep your hair off of your face during the hot summer months and looks fantastic when paired with statement earrings.
And they get away with bad hair days like crazy! Lucky her!

A cinched waist is the epitome of femininity and makes every ensemble chic.

She is never seen without a cool belt cinching her waist, accentuating her curves and echoing a feel of Hollywood glamour that we all should try and evoke as often as possible.

 Long hemlines can be just as sexy as a miniskirt.

With the advent of the no-pants trend, well less is best, but Sheika Mozah is showing us all that long hemlines can be just as sexy and sensual as the shortest and tightest miniskirt.

  Bright colors are always the way to go and make a great fashion statement.
Sheika Mozah often opts on the side of vibrant colors including purple and green, radiating confidence and making her looks unforgettable no matter which continent she travels to.

  No matter what your age, fashion can and always should be fun.
Women over 50 like Sheika Mozah are giving us style lessons, showing us that wisdom, experience and a youthful attitude are the best outfit that anyone could wear. Fashion is about having fun and taking risks and Sheika Mozah does that day in and day out, inspiring us all.

I have always adored HRH Sheikha Mozah of Qatar and a week or so ago I profiled her on my FB page and was amazed and pleasantly surprised at how many hits I got. It was one of the main reasons I decided to profile her on my blog b'cos I immediately realized, myself included, that she has a very strong following all over the world that really appreciate her style. She marches to the beat of her own drum and I truly respect her for that.
