The caftan is lovely and the embroidery on it looks really elegant.

The caftan is absolutely beautiful as is Salma. She has the most intricate, expertly sewn caftans I've ever seen. And she wears them so well.

Im not a fan of the color but her overall appearance (make up, hair and fit of the suit) really works well.

That is such a pretty coat, cut and color. I don't understand the underneath part though. I quite like it when she pulls her hair back like that.

I liked the simplicity of the suit. The bag is lovely.

I have a question, whenever I see Salma at a wedding, gala dinner, investiture, especially events that are in other countries she always wears a Kaftan. I don't have anything against a Kaftan, I think they're very pretty but does she have to wear them to these state events or is she allowed to wear a regular evening gown like Queen Rania does sometimes? I think she would look very pretty in an evening gown, especially an Ellie Saab gown she does beautiful detailing.

In my personal opinion ...

Lalla Salma and other female members of the Moroccan royal family feel that caftans are the most appropriate attire for any gala dinners, state banquets, and festivities they attend. It is impossible for me to say whether or not the caftan is required by the Moroccan royal protocol. I am sure more knowledgeable members will clarify the situation.

Why look like everybody else when you can wear such beautiful garment from your own culture?

I presume that she pays respect to her country (like Sean Connery or CP Mary's father at the royal wedding have honoured the quilt), and in the meantime she wears stunning and unique pieces.

I agree, the Caftan is a very wonderfull piece, very enchanting and gorgeous. I think it's a honor to wear such amazing piece, plus you're honoring your country and let others who are foreign, witness with their own eyes the marvelous piece the Caftans are. I bet many other royals are jealousy for not having it, but we saw royals like Princess Haya wearing Caftan's before, it's because the tempting is way to much

Either way, the explanation is to honor the Culture of Morocco and to represent her country. Other royal houses like Norway and Sweden have a national attire that they use on National day. Morocco however has lots of morocan traditional clothes, it's on their daily lifes. I suppose the protocol for evening wear is Caftans for ladies, but men also wear traditional wear for evening as well.

Besides, Lalla Salma wears western clothes, but daytime, like suits and pants and dresses. But evening is for Caftan only.

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with wearing a caftan and I'm not disagreeing that they are beautiful I was simply asking if she HAS to wear them for foreign events or if it is her choice because she has never worn an evening gown before as far as I know. I think it is nice that she represents her country in that way. I guess until there is an official source to back up the statements we'll never know.

It's their custom, if you see the evening events, you'll notice that not only the ladies are wearing traditional clothes, but the men are wearing as well.
It's tradition, there's no other explanation.
Queen Rania was always a bit westernized, that's why she is criticized, however, nowadays she's wearing more thoubs.
