If you watched the recent royal wedding, you might have caught a glimpse of Morocco's Princess Lalla Salma, wife of HRH King Mohamed VI.
Mustapha Ajbaili of Al Arabiya reports that readers of the UK's celebrity magazine, Hello, have voted the Fez-born princess as the most elegant woman at the wedding in London on 29 April.
“The North African beauty—dressed in a pale pink and gold kaftan, the traditional clothing of her native country—easily triumphed in our most elegant woman competition, gaining 55 percent of our readers’ votes,” the magazine said.
Pippa Middleton came in second as she supported her sister, the bride Kate Middleton, throughout the wedding day.
The magazine wrote that “the battle for third place was closely fought with Charlene Wittstock—who is due to marry Prince Albert of Monaco this July—and Princess Letizia of Spain neck and neck most of the way.”
The Moroccan kaftan can be dressy casual to extremely formal depending on the fabrics used. They can be worn at dinner parties, engagement parties and weddings.
