Vogue Arabia just dedicated their June issue to the women of Saudi Arabia and the new laws which are being introduced to empower them. The Saudi Kingdom has been moving towards a progressive and better future for it’s citizen and specially for  it’s female population.

Saudi Arabia made headlines when they announced their decision to let women drive. It wasn’t a big deal to the western countries, but sort of ground breaking for the conservative nation. The recent criminalisation of sexual assault is another great move by the government of Saudi. These little steps are pro actively taken to be more fair to it’s female population and are actually a big deal for the women who live in this country.

Vogue Arabia caught the true essence of the whole movement and change by featuring a Saudi princess on its cover and the shoot along with the story is truly iconic!

HRH Hayfa Bint Abdulla Al Saud, daughter of late King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia graced the cover of Vogue Arabia’s June edition. She dons a white outfit and is seen driving a vintage red 1980’s Mercedes 450 SL. The concept is what caught our attention and the idea behind it. She is shown as the new wave or the new driving force of the country and its women.

🇸🇦“In our country, there are some conservatives who fear change. For many, it’s all they have known. Personally, I support these changes with great enthusiasm.” HRH Princess Hayfa bint Abdullah Al Saud is in the driving seat on the cover of #VogueArabia’s first-ever #SaudiIssue. The Saudi issue will launch in a monumental month, with the ban on women driving in the Kingdom set to be lifted on June 24.

Hayfa is what the women of Saudi Arabia stand for, she is modern and yet values the tradition of her roots. She told the magazine how western countries look down on their country, but there is so much more to know about it. According to her no nation is perfect and has to work on itself to make it more sustainable for its citizens.

This move by Vogue has made a huge difference for the women of Saudi Arabia and helps the whole world to embrace the beauty of the whole nation along with the changes that it is bringing along.

Self proclaimed social media Queen, who thinks the world is her runway. Would work for infinite doggo nose boops and kisses.
