Move over, Jackie O
Julien Macdonald has proclaimed Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned, second wife of the Emir of Qatar, as the world’s new queen of style. According to the Guardian, Mcdonald has said that ‘not since Jackie O has any first lady had such global resonance in terms of fashion’.
Mcdonald’s comments come after Sheikha Mozah’s official state visit to the UK this week, during which she and her husband visited the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh in Windsor. Sheikha Mozah showed off a glittering wardrobe of beautiful outfits including a Dior Couture gown, red Valentino gown and Armani Prive trousersuit.
Fashion insiders are even more impressed by reports that the Qatar royal doesn’t even have a stylist. Her expert fashion eye has attracted some of the world’s leading designers, with many more clamouring to dress her. Mcdonald says ‘I would love to dress her. Her personal style is rich with power and confidence, yet retains a real femininity that many women aspire to.’
