The magazine’s first-ever issue dedicated to Saudi Arabia sees Princess Hayfa sitting in a cooler-than-cool red convertible in a series of photographs shot by Boo George.
Notably, the Saudi princess sits behind the wheel of a vintage red 1980s Mercedes 450 SL, making a clear statement that she’s ready to be a part of the vanguard that drives her country forward.
“In our country, there are some conservatives who fear change,” Al Saud says of the new direction the Kingdom is moving in.
“For many, it’s all they have known. Personally, I support these changes with great enthusiasm. It is easy to comment on other people’s societies and think that your own society is superior, but the Western world must remember that each country is specific and unique. We have strengths and weaknesses but, invariably, it’s our culture, and it’s better to try to understand it than to judge it.”
