I was going to Twitter this, as I often do, since I like to point out Carla Bruni’s nicer frocks.
So the lady in the second picture is fairly decorative as well, and according to the article, she’s Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al-Missned, wife of Sheik Hamad Bin Jassem Al Thani of Qatar. So I did a Google search, wondering what sort of thing she gets photographed wearing when she’s at home, and was surprised to see she actually has her own webpage. If you look at the slideshow here, she’s evidently the last woman on the planet that knows how to sit in a low chair with her ankles crossed just so, like they do in old movies. She’s got the most astonishing array of hats.
Her Highness graduated from Qatar University in 1986 with a degree in sociology. She has been awarded honorary doctorates from Virginia Commonwealth University, Texas A&M University, Carnegie Mellon University, Imperial College London, and Georgetown University School of Foreign Service.
That’s quite the list of universities.
Plus, evidently she’s 50. And she’s had 7 kids. I mean really.
