La Sheikha Diva...
Skeikha printed Couture: Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al Missnad of Qatar arriving in IndiaSeveral days ago Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani arrived in India, along with the second of his three wives--the elegant Skeihka Mozah Bint Nasser Al Missnad. They were there on an official state visit to strengthen ties between the two nations. They met with the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Indian President Prathiba Patil as well as other top dignitaries.

Qatar is the largest provider of liquefied natural gas to India and India is also a major importer of Qatari oil. Both Qatar and India also signed agreements relating to tourism, education exchanges and co-operation over legal issues.
I've written about the Qatari Sheikha Mozah before and and her unique--and very FABULOUS--turban. That turban has become her "Birkin Bag" of sorts. She's a client of all the top Fashion Houses and wears $100,000+ Haute Couture ensembles, because she can!

And here is the Sheikha, in another dress, worn during a ceremonial reception at India's Presidential Palace Rashtrapati Bhayan in New Delhi. Here she opted for a loose, more flowy style in a color-blocked design of black, white and green. And she smartly cinched it with a thin leather belt. Notice the ankle length of the dress. It's not long enough to be considered an evening gown but a chic way of "covering up" for day time. As always, she finished off her look with a great clutch, and that iconic turban. Once again, she gets an "A" in style.
