I agree with you 100% on this point! She is lovely as a brunette. It sets off her natural coloring and she looks so pretty. Early photos of her mother show she was a brunette then dyed her hair to a dark blonde. Sometimes, I wonder if Princess Haya is trying to emulate her mother when she starts in with the coloring.

I was quite suprised by Princess Haya's win as president of the FEI over Queen Margarthe's sister. But I think she is handling the job very well. I hope she continues to handles her role with grace and class to help raise the profile of Arab women.

Agreed she radiates something she is so obviously happy!!! While i'm not a huge fan of what she wears i love the way she does her hair and makeup. She looks so regal.
