AlUla was swarmed with hundreds of visitors attending the events happening last weekend, from the ‘Women to Women’ talk, hosted by Princess Reema bint Bandar Alsaud and Alicia Keys, to the Richard Mille Desert Polo match. With numerous events and occasions taking place, attendees put on their best desert attire and proved that they could pull off an equestrian look along with a desert one. Without further ado, here are all the best looks seen at the Richard Mille Desert Polo along with the other events at AlUla last weekend.
Abeer Alakel is the Chief of Special Initiatives and Partnerships at The Royal Commission for AlUla, whilst also being a fashion icon. Abeer spent three days at the Polo match, each day impressing us some more with her fashion choices.
Wearing the traditional Saudi thobe, but with a flair. Abdullah Alhumaidan caught our attention, with his styling for this lavish event. The cashmere shemagh with Saudi patterns is most certainly an inspiring touch.
Local resident and influencer Aziz Alula was the talk of the polo event with his look. His combination of fabrics took us to the past with his modern take of a traditional look, which was inspired by King Abdulaziz Alsaud.
This man needs no introduction. Mohammed Alturki continues to grasp our attention with his fashion choices and brought modernity to the ancient sands of Alula. He kept it laid back with a full black look and sneakers perfect for the desert.
This look, with no exaggeration, caught the attention of attendees from a distance. The colour is not your typical desert chic, but Jawaher Alziyad, working with Qumash Abayas made it work.
Your typical Saudi bisht, but with a twist. We wouldn’t normally see a bisht this modern or colourful, but Dr. Raf Fatani, General Regional Manager of Devices and Sales at Amazon, made it work. This look was unique and eye-catching. Thank you, Raf.
Actress Fatima Albanawi’s look at the ‘Women to Women’ talk was chic and elegant. The perfect choice for a once in a lifetime event.
Last but most definitely not least, Alicia Keys performed in Alula repping none other than a Saudi designer. Here, she’s seen dressed by Saudi brand, Abadia, created by Shahad Alshehail. Her first look was an off-white suit that showcased Abadia’s ability to create timeless pieces.
This second look, also designed by Abadi made a statement on its own. Alicia Keys took the audience by surprise with this mustard-coloured jumpsuit.
