Maybe there's many comon points in the arab women dresses,but some cararteres in that dresses from Elie saab ,that i quted before with pictures, are only in the moroccan "tak****a",like the big slit in the sides till the waist,the embroidement "Sfifa" in the middle of the dresse till the bottom, and the two pieces dresse ,which we see especially in the beige-gold coloured dress of rania and the white one of Nour.
