That is a very beautiful spread. I notice a lot of women in the Middle East look prettier wearing hijab and abaya. I don't know what it is...

I love the thread...and those MC pics are great (even though non of the models are actually from the gulf..) but thats exactly how a large percentage of the younger, more modern girls wear their abayas and tarha(head scarf) in saudi..
next time i go..i wish i cant take pics of the do's and don'ts of wearing the abaya and tarha..hmm..IDEA!

Regarding modesty..in coutries such as saudi arabia where you are obligated as a woman to where the abaya (long black dress) and tarha (what ppl call hijab) girls are making it stylish buy buying designer fabric,, making it tighter, sheer...colorful..you name it...and they feel the need to compensate buy wearing alot of make up...which defeats the purpose imo...i was surprised last time i visited the coutry to see that..as you said..they are drawing more attention..and i think the whole point is not to. Even just the headscarf..some young girls who wear the headscarf outside of their coutries..(as you witness alot on paris, london. etc in august) tend to wear the tightest jeans,really high heels..and the most colorful and skin tight tops and almost porno-ish make up...and then they wear a headscarf in a very bright color...tie it around their heads like bandanas to make it look less "veil-like"...its very contradicting..but some feel the need to compensate for not showing their hair..which is crazy because hair isnt the most attractive female feature...your eyes.face..neck and body is....its realy turning into a "trend"" and is starting to become less humble and modest...
anyway, please let me know which issue the ed is from..id love to read it!

i'm saudi,i live in saudi arabia and i agree with everything you said. i mean girls here wear hijab because they have to, not because they believe in it or anything. that's why i think it's becoming less modest. the younger generation is turning it into a flashy trendy thing (not that there's anything wrong with being trendy and looking good but not to a point where it's attracting unwanted attention), they just don't get it i think. i don't mind colours or designer fabrics it's ok. but the porno make up!! it's really annoying.

i dont think hijabed girls wear heavy makeup because hijab makes them feel "oppressed" or they feel the need to compensate .. i know a lot of non-hijabed syrian/jordanian women who wear revealing clothes and they wear the heaviest makeup. the heavy extravagant makeup look is the signature look for most arab women , whether she's "mohajabah " or not..

i totallllyy agree about arab ladies and their makeup....no scanner, but i took pics from some arabic mags i have

I disagree with the wearing of tight/sheer/sexy clothes with a hijab, but i think makeup and some slight embelishments is fine

the proof is in the picas ...gorrrgeous features *jealous*

















my god..this woman..is possibly the most gorgeous thing ive EVER seen

Thanks for the pics. i think the first pic (she's a writer her name is rajaa) is the right amount of make up for a mohajaba, other than that it's too much.
i don't know why arab ladies just LOVE heavy make up, heavy eye makeup is very normal day and night, night and day. i mean even in college i see alot of girls wearing heavy black eyeliner, black mascara, too much blush and bronzers.
i don't wear that kind of makeup even for patries and big events but some of my friends do.

well i guess they love playing up their features..i mean sure many would say 'let your natural beauty shine through' but hey..it almost seems more 'natural' than not wearing any at all! ahaha

i agree, rajaa's makeup is lovely ive always thought miss al-sanie was gorgeous

i wish i could wear head scarves myself, i find them so exotic..
i like the scarve look with or without heavy khol make up,
with plain face, it looks angelic and pure, with heavy eye make up it looks real mysterious and promising

even thought i'm so attracted to this look it's impossible for me to adapt since its a cultural issue

I think this thread has shown that the great thing about Islam is it is open to interpretation and self worship. A muslim once told me that initially the point of Islam was self-worship... that is was meant to be a personal thing and that the aim was to get rid of the middle man in other religions (Rabbi, Priest, guru, shaman etc etc). Of course the current climate places so much false emphasis on the Imans but it is nice to know that women can be individual with the hijab if they so please.

TOOOO much makeup. It is erm.... a different cultural aesthetic I suppose but to me it looks horrid. Very very drag queen.
