Vogue Arabia’s March 2024 issue, marking its seventh anniversary, shines a spotlight on seven iconic women from across the globe.

Under the theme ‘Beauties of the World’, the edition celebrates women of diverse ethnicities, body types, and ages, all of whom are deeply connected to significant social causes.

The issue underscores the idea that beauty is not merely a physical attribute, but a quality that truly radiates from within.

Among the celebrated women is Bollywood superstar Kareena Kapoor, who shares the limelight with international stars such as Elyanna, Halima Aden, Nadine Nassib Njeim, Monica Bellucci, Winnie Harlow, and Abrar Alothman.

In the cover story, these seven women candidly discuss their personal experiences and challenges with beauty, and how they empower themselves towards self-love.

“They were afraid to shake my hand, or if they did, they would only do it with their fingertips and then immediately wipe their hands.”

Today, the 30-year-old is celebrated online for her candid messages about self-love and resilience.

The Vogue issue also highlights Princess Abeer S bin Farhan Al Saud, a unique Saudi royal who recently embarked on a historic expedition to Antarctica.

From this remote location, she writes to Vogue Arabia’s readers: “The desert pushes us to our limits, just as the ice does.

“Extreme heat and extreme cold test us to see how much we can tolerate and what we will do to survive.

“This journey has changed me, and I say without hesitation: I am happy and all the better for it.”
