CLEO (Malaysia) - - PROMOTION -

These re­gal It girls and guys are more than just gor­geous faces. They’ve been known to per­form acts of phi­lan­thropy, pur­sue po­etic am­bi­tions and win­ning royal style!

Queen Ra­nia AlAb­dul­lah Of Jordan

Once hailed as the most beau­ti­ful queen con­sort in the world, Her Majesty was a com­moner un­til a chance out­ing with a col­league to a din­ner party hosted by King Ab­dul­lah’s sis­ter. In­stead of relishing in the luxuries that come with be­com­ing Queen, she uses her ti­tle to bring for­ward is­sues that con­cern women’s rights and ed­u­ca­tion re­forms. She was known to even use her sis­terin-law’s USD2 mil­lion (RM6.7 mil­lion) tiara for her as­cen­sion cer­e­mony! This woman brings out Power Dress­ing with her eclec­tic folk fla­vor meets con­tem­po­rary style choices!

Princess Ameera AlTaweel Of Saudi Ara­bia

She was named one of the top five dressed per­son­al­i­ties at Wil­liam and Kate’s wed­ding, thanks to her im­pec­ca­ble la­dy­like style. She is al­ways seen dressed in soft, fem­i­nine hues and swears by pen­cil skirts! Her stand for women’s and chil­dren’s rights is what truly grants her the ti­tle of a princess. She openly claims that she would be one of the first women to drive in Saudi Ara­bia as a mark of protest against the law pro­hibit­ing women to drive in the coun­try. She also makes an ef­fort to ap­pear along­side her hus­band in pub­lic as a ges­ture to im­prove and pro­mote the im­age of Saudi women.

Queen Jet­sun Pema Of Bhutan

This young queen is a mod­est beauty. Born a com­moner whose fa­ther is an air­line pi­lot, Queen Jet­sun mar­ried the 31-year old King Jingme Kh­e­sar Nam­gyel Wangchuck of Bhutan. This re­gal god­dess is a fan­tas­tic bas­ket­ball player and was cap­tain of her school ’s bas­ket­ball team! She’s also known to score a cou­ple of slam dunks in friendly matches with her hus­band and her sub­jects. Style­wise, Queen Jet­sun’s choices of eth­nic gar­ments and mod­ern chic taste have made her quite the style icon.
