    No wonder you people don’t have any clue about Saudi Arabia and believe only about the things which media wanted you to know. Yes we are fully cover by Abaya but your girls can only dream about the moeny being spent on fashion and makeup in Saudi Arabia.

    I tutored a Saudi woman in Seattle ages ago. She was absolutely gorgeous, and showed me all the fantastic, expensive clothes, make-up and shoes she bought..that was my first introduction as to how she showed them off—to her female friends only, (and of course to her husband) when they went visiting—men in one room, women in the other.

    What an interesting photo! A part we don’t imagine here, in western Europe.

    I hear they are very “Western” when out of the country.
