Ms. Spears is all right. She is an American and looks generic to me. It is wonderful that she enjoyed a fruitful career in such capricious industry such fashion.
Personally I like Ai Tominaga for a gracefully regal walk and Freja Beha Erichsen for being a chameleon.

So she is Princess Salwa now. Do they just randomly choose a name or is there more to it?

Princess Salwa did an amazing job draping her sari. I loved the pattern and delicate embroidery on it.

Because she has converted to Islam, she took a more suited muslim name.


She was so beautiful and exquisite. I loved her attire;)

How did they meet?

I love how she is being referred to as his 'first wife' already, even though she is the only one at the moment. I guess she has already agreed to the polygamy.

Has it been confirmed that he will in fact take on more than one wife?

Aga Khans don't practise polygamy but they use to divorce with their wives-models/actresses.

Most people chose
a) a name that they find beautiful
b) a name with a certain meaning (most Arabic names have a special meaning)
b) a name with history - either someone from your family who inspired you or someone you have heard/read about in books

There is a very short entry in Wikipedia about the name "Salwa":
It is an Arabic name and means Quail, a type of bird. (There are also three towns,one in Kuwait & two in India with that name)
Here is also an entry about the Quail:Quail - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Good luck for the newly-weds! They look very beautiful together :-)
