ROYAL COUTURE.....Sheikha Mozah of Qatar is in Japan, Giving COUTURE...and Turbans, of course!

 Emperors of Japan Meet COUTURE:The one-and-only Her Highness Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned of Qatar in Japan, meeting His Imperial Majesty Emperor Akihito and Her Imperial Majesty Empress Michito of Japan

This week, the stunning and Couture-loving Sheikha Mozah of Qatar is visiting Japan on a semi-official visit as the chairperson for Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, a title she has held since 1995. The sheikha has a very high profile in her nation's society and actively involved in Qatar's government. Just last year, her husband, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani of Qatar surprised the entire nation and decided to abdicate to his son Tamin bin Hamad Al Thani. He is Sheikha Mozah's second son (with Sheikh Hamad) and now the Emir of Qatar; in other words, she's like the "Qatari Queen Mother" as it were. Now, more on her FASHION in Japan...

Teal Silk Haute Couture: For her meeting with the Emperors of Japan, H.H. Sheikha Mozah wore a silk teal-colored draped wrap coat with large bell sleeves from Ulyana Sergeenko Spring 2014 Haute Couture...

Ulyana Sergeenko Spring/Summer Haute Couture 2014: the original runway look was in a darker navy blue and had red and green flower applique on the bell sleeves. As a client of Haute Couture--who is willing to spend $100,000 for a simple silk ensemble, you can change ANYTHING darlings! In case you don't know who Ulyana Sergeenko is, she is Russian, was a photographer, stylist, Couture client and now became a Couture fashion designer featured in Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week and covered by

Gaultier Haute Couture: For her 2nd day of Japan visit,
H.H. Sheikha Mozah visited the Japanese National Institute of Advanced
Industrial Science and Technology. Here she wore a double-breasted pantsuit
from Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2013 Haute Couture.  Instead of
the full-to-fit pants, she wore palazzo/wide-legged ones. 

QELA DIVA: During this Japan visit, the Sheikha also wore a blue ensemble with gold applique waist and center-front/neck detail from her own (gasp!) fashion-and-accessory line QELA. Below is an editorial photo of what the Sheikha wore--without sleeves and well, a little more "seductive".

Preppy Chic: H.H. Sheikha Mozah also met with Sony executives during her trip to Japan,--and in this meeting she wore a sensible and very Sportif double-breasted blue jacket with sharp lapels, dress shirt, khakis and full scarf/turban/ascot.

For her meeting with Japan's Prime Mininister, H.H. Shiekha Mozah
wore an all black ensemble from her new favorite designer Russian Ulyana

All-Black Couture: The high-neck, fitted midriff and attached gathered dirndl skirt look was ordered from the Ulyana Sergeento Fall/Winter 2013 Haute Couture collection. The Sheikha opted to change the sleeves from Leg-o-Mutton to regular three-quarter set-in sleeves. That's her prerogative, of course, since, like I said, when you are ordering a $75,000 COUTURE ensemble, you can change whatever you'd like.
