The woman to the right might not be someone you readily recognize but she is taking the world by storm with her strong features, unbelievable intelligence and powerful fashion sense. She is Sheika Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned, wife of the Emir of Qatar.

Her royal title has carried her to many countries to meet Presidents, Queens and the like including Queen Sofia of Spain, President Barack Obama and many more. At each meeting, she never fails to wear something fashion-forward and elegant, giving us all inspiration regardless of style, age or ethnicity.

Here are five things she is teaching us about style:

1. Turbans are incredibly chic and even better when paired with statement jewelry.

Sheika Mozah must keep her hair covered and she does so quite fashionably with turbans, reminding us all that Middle Eastern women have been rocking the trend long before it was seen on the Spring 2011 runways. It is a glamorous way to keep your hair off of your face during the hot summer months and looks fantastic when paired with statement earrings.

2. A cinched waist is the epitome of femininity and makes every ensemble chic.

She is never seen without a cool belt cinching her waist, accentuating her curves and echoing a feel of Hollywood glamour that we all should try and evoke as often as possible.

3. Long hemlines can be just as sexy as a miniskirt.

With the advent of the no-pants trend, we’ve begun to think that less is best, but Sheika Mozah is showing us all that long hemlines can be just as sexy and sensual as the shortest and tightest miniskirt.

4. Bright colors are always the way to go and make a great fashion statement.

Sheika Mozah often opts on the side of vibrant colors including purple and green, radiating confidence and making her looks unforgettable no matter which continent she travels to.

5. No matter what your age, fashion can and always should be fun.

Women over 50 like Sheika Mozah are giving us style lessons, showing us that wisdom, experience and a youthful attitude are the best outfit that anyone could wear. Fashion is about having fun and taking risks and Sheika Mozah does that day in and day out, inspiring us all.

    What you said! She looks amazing! That fitted white dress is insanely sexy, yet still so sophisticated and classy!

  • Vonmiwi

    And that’s why I named her one of the most elegant women in the world. Real style is not contrived or trendy because it’s based on the classics.

  • belle

    Thank you! She is an authentic, powerful, and smart woman! Her style is impeccable!

    My fave is the white ensemble with the simple belt, cape, sunglasses, and brown clutch.

    She reminds me of an older Kim K, and Raquel Welch in a few shots. I see that she is someone that hires a tailor. Clothing never looks that good strait off of the rack.
    Yes she is teaching me a thing or two.

    I LOVE her style! Definitely an icon!

    She is NOT wearing a turban. Turbans are worn by Sikh men, rather she is wearing a hijab which is the headcovering that Muslim women wear. The hijab can be worn in versatile ways, that’s why you’ve mistaken it for a turban, but a turban it is not.

    Nevertheless, I love her fashion sense and she is the epitome of class!
