Emirates Woman Minwa Al Hamed

Whether you’re relaxing poolside or chilling at home this weekend, pick up a copy of Emirates Woman‘s latest issue or read it online.  In this issue, we look at beauty in all forms, not simply skin-deep. The overarching theme when we asked a wealth of incredible women we know what beauty means to them was feeling comfortable in your own skin – no matter what shade or size that is. One word that also arose was integrity, a word that is vital in both how you operate and those you surround yourself or partner with. For our cover shoot, we partnered with global beauty powerhouse Hourglass in A Brave New Beauty. Our cover star is Minwa Al Hamed – muse to Her Highness Sheikha Sana Al Maktoum and her namesake fine jewellery brand which is going from strength to strength.
