Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I've never understood the endless praise for Salma, aside from her striking hair, I find her features very harsh and think she has quite a masculine bone structure. There's little softness to her face.

As for her profile, might it have something to do with the fact that she actually has very few activities and does very little?

Just my thoughts. I couldn't have said it better.

Lalla Salma, Lalla Meryem and all the others from the Moroccoan Royal House do not belong to the list with 'most beautiful oriental Princess' because some parts of Morocco are geographically even more in the west than Spain, it is really NOT Orient.

As I said previously the term Orient may be used to refer to the Middle East, it has been done for many many years. I have quit a few Arab friends who refer to the Middle East as the Orient, as that is a well-established and traditional description.
Here's some links on the subject
Orientalism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Orient - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

With the best will of the world, even the 'middle east' can not cover Morocco.

The country is in the Maghreb, the Northwest part of Africa, just divided from the Iberic peninsula by the narrow Street of Gibraltar (which is English).

Your own map proves that Morocco is not even near the Orient.

This is a Chit Chat thread. The question is obviously subjective and is not meant to be taken too seriously.
It's certainly not the place to indulge in argumentative pedantry.

Let's keep it light-hearted and amiable please.

thanks.

I agree with you Henri M. moroocco don't belong to the orient


here my choises:
princess noor of jordan
Princess Alexandra of Denmark
Crown Princess Sarah of Brunei

for Q.rania I would not say that she is pretty because in my opinion to be beautiful is to be natural and it's not case of rania,and we can notice that from her pictures before all that Plastic Surgery,it's the seem for Sheikha Mozah.

1. Crown Princess Masako of Japan
2. Princess Kiko (Princess Akishino) of Japan
3. Queen Rania of Jordan
4. Queen Saleha of Brunei
IMO, these ladies have a great combination of the three B (beauty, brain, and behaviour)

perhaps we can call this thread "non european royal ladies" considering everyone has a different concept of orientalism :)

i forgot to add princess khaliya aga khan to my list. i think she is incredibly beautiful and elegant (although i will add her in a parentesis as we have not seen many pictures of her appart from those of the wedding). the same applies to the wife of prince hashem of jordan, the saudi arabian princess fahdah. i have only seen one picture of her, but she seems stunning! i'm looking forward to newly released pictures.

I think that you are wrong
Lalla Salma is the image itself of the feminity
Her features are absolutely perfect, beautiful eyes, pulpous lips, perfect nose, and a superb body
She remind me a lot princess Grace of Monaco, and I think that none princess, has her beauty and her charisma
Remember that at the time of the Thailand's celebrations, she was the most admired lady, all journalists focused on her

I agree that Lalla Salma, onherself no oriental Princess, is a stunning beauty. She is a walking advert for L'Oréal with her fairytale deep-red hair.

I completely agree with you, personally I don't like her features, they aren't harmonious and the shape of her face isn't nice (very small chine, and big forehead)
in addition, she hasn't a good taste, a lot of make-up and very flashy clothes
and her way to be in public isn't very refined

That's merely your opinion. You're entitled to disagree with me, however that doesn't maek my opinion (and the various people who agreed with me) wrong.

I can think of half a dozen princesses who are much better looking and composed, most of those are in the Moroccan Royal Family! As for her charisma, she usually comes across poorly at her offocial events imo. Her body language is often stilted and unsure, very disappointing for a future queen.

I remember the Thai celebrations I guess we were reading different papers as I recall a great deal of press focusing on the Thai crown princess.
