FASHION ICON: Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz, the princess of Saudi Arabia

Deena Aljuhani Abdulazis

They say, in fashion, points of view matter, especially because it’s an industry where individual style and expression of it is highly valued and celebrated. Back in the 90s, Vogue editors were considered to be the incorrigible royals when it came to fashion and irrefutable arbiters of style. Today, things have changed drastically with the digital and blogging revolution. The fashion space is cluttered with fashion bloggers, Youtube wannabe stars and editors of fashion publications and the craze shows no signs of slowing down. Everyone seems to want to get in on the ride, thinking that the phrase “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion” stands in fashion as well. In an industry where experts are rendered irrelevant, to be heard or seen, takes truly a big personality. And that is something Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz has an abundance of.

A royal in her own right, Princess Deena is the reason why Vogue was launched in the Middle East. She carries the best of both worlds, blending East and West in every outfit. With years of fashion experience under her belt, and a knack for style, her innate taste transcends borders and religion. Once an avid admired of Madonna, this 41 year old fashionista inspires us with not only her fashion sense, but her remarkable character. Bastet Noir always celebrates strong, opinionated women and this month is no exception. We’ve dissected her style to see what makes her truly special.
