i'd really appreciate it if someone can post an HQ of the MC ed. i'm really surprised that an american magazine did that, i love it. as a saudi girl living in ksa i can tell you that this is exactly how we wear abayas (except that skiing pic) but maybe with less make up.

I think I might have something of interest to say... I am a muslim (Turkish) born and raised in the USA and just last year moved to Palestine after getting married to an Arab Christian and I have to say that I have been enlightened more than ever, maybe the reason my detiny brought me here.

Anyway, I just have to say, Turkish Muslims are very different than Arabic people. I have had the opportunity to travel to Egypt, Jordan, UAE-Dubai, and Arabic women that choose to wear hijab fall into 2 main categories, the really religious and then the women who wear hijab because all the women in their families and community wear it and you just look and feel naked when you are the only one that is uncovered in a room, so you put one on too... The really religious women that are covered wear little make-up if any at all, and all in all don't attract any attention, where as the ones who wear it "just because" take the modesty thing a lot lighter, those are the women that will wear very heavy make-up, anklets, and other adornements. Seriously, if you see a modestly dressed woman that doesn't wear hijab but looks modest, you look at the hijabed woman with tons of make-up, seriously they are SEXY!! Nothing modest about it, I will try to get some candids...

I remember the first time I was at Mecca mall in Amman, and there was this woman, from the gulf, who had an all black jacket thingy on and her hair was covered and she had the thickest spakled make-up, I would have thought she was a hooker if she hadn't had the hijab on!!

So, just becuase a woman has hijab on doesn't mean she is more muslim than the girl without hijab, hijab doesnt make you muslim, the feelings, thoughts and beliefs in your heart make you a good person, not the cloth on your head, whether it is chanel or kmart brand scarf...

Another thing that ticks me off, is if people in some parts of arabic countries see a woman without hijab it means to the stupid ones that they "have a right to gawk." I mean, what kind of standard is that, because you don't have hijab you are less holy, and hello what if you are an arab christian, hence why so many arabic christians make sure that they wear their cross, that way they are not looked to be complete whores, because there hair is uncovered.... uhhh, I cant stand it.

^ you're so right i agree with you. but sadly here in saudi arabia you have to wear hijab just because it's saudi arabia. even if you're christian or whatever.. you can't go to public places without "abaya" but it's slowly changing i think. especially in Riyadh people are so uptight it's so annoying.

nice thread!
we had a lotta changing in the city where i live in saudi arabia,
u don't actually "have to" wear a head scarfe(hijab) nor abbaya if u don't want to!
and it's kind of a good thing, becuase it really shows who's wearing for it's real purpose and who's wearing just because they have to, and let me tell you, the ladies who are obligated or forced to do so are the ones causing all that confusion, because every muslim woman knows what is the point of wearing hijab and if u don't get it then respect it and leave it for the ones who do. logoed scarved and designer's are not the issue, becuase Hello we'r rich, we can afford it
j\k, but seriously, muslim women are still women, and we do like designers oufits the because of the same reason everyone else does,,
i hope i can fix my scanner, i have some stuff to show ya ^^

Vanilla fairy & G86 I love your perspectives! I cant wait to see your uploads! Since being in Palestine I have had lots of mixed feelings about fashion and islam, but your right, we are women, and we all love to feel beautiful... to me its ok if a muhajaba is wearing light make-up and is beautiful, sometimes hijab accentuates your beauty anyway, it looks cute, but its the women who are completely vulgur that turn me off, but then again, to each their own.
