Riyadh, 12th July: Saudi Arabia allowed a raunchy Vogue Arabia photoshoot in Madina province recently.
The controversial photoshoot is part of a series of reforms that the kingdom has been implementing in recent years in order to open up its economy to international tourism and modernization.
Saudi Arabia has stoked a controversy by allowing a photoshoot of international supermodels for Vogue Arabia to take place in the province of Madina. The photoshoot, named ‘24 hours in Al Ula’, portrayed models wearing tight dresses with thigh-slits.
‘Vogue Arabia’, the Arab edition of the renowned US-based fashion magazine, released its 24-hour campaign photoshoot for the New York-based label Mônot yesterday, which featured models such as Kate Moss, Mariacarla Boscono, Candice Swanepoel, Jourdan Dunn, Amber Valletta, Xiao Wen, and Alek Wek.
The models are seen walking around the UNESCO World Heritage site, known as the world’s largest open-air museum consisting of carved rock structures similar to Jordan’s Petra.
Regardless of the fact that the site is about 300 kilometers away from the holy city of Madina, it is still within the same province. For Muslims, this type of raunchy photoshoot is quite inappropriate for a country such as Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia has certainly sparked a dispute by approving such inappropriate photoshoot in the holy city of Madina. People are quite enraged as to why the Saudi government allowed such a shoot?
