Vogue Arabia has been sending shockwaves through the industry ever since it launched with a captivating Gigi Hadid cover last year. Now, 15 issues later, the magazine continues to break down barriers and raise the bar. Following two exquisite covers to celebrate its one-year anniversary and an Adwoa Aboah offering, Arabian Vogue pulls off a June 2018 cover shoot featuring a member of the Saudi royal family. HRH Princess Hayfa Bint Abdullah Al Saud makes a stunning and triumphant appearance on the magazine’s latest, photographed in the desert by Boo George. The princess sits in the driver’s seat of a vintage car, making a bold political statement and celebrating women’s newly earned right to drive in Saudi Arabia.
The cover immediately grabbed the attention of our forum members. “When I read it was a princess I thought we’re going to get a rather sterile ‘royal-approved’ cover, but I was wrong. This is very cinematic and luxurious,” admitted dodencebt upon checking out the cover.
“Beautiful way to celebrate such a great moment,” heralded Miss Dalloway.
“Gorgeous! And I love how they turned it into a political cover, but still quite subtle. Well done Vogue Arabia!” [Piece Of Me] applauded.
