Style-watchers in the UK are all atwitter over Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned, the wife of the Emir of Qatar, the new owner of Harrods in London.

"Her look is two parts Jackie O, one part Carrie Bradshaw," writes the Guardian's Imogen Fox.

She's a sucker for colour—be it a silk cranberry full-length dress or a lime trouser suit with matching turban. But her real fashion USP [Unique Selling Point] is the way she styles her turbans, often with blackout sunglasses and a pair of hefty chandelier earrings. It isn't your average woman who can manage to look covered up, OTT, a touch retro and unique all at once. Let's hope her look is available at Harrods sometime soon.
