Princess Ameerah bint Aidan bin Nayef Al-Taweel
Princess Ameerah (born 6 November 1983) often called Princess Amira al-Taweel, in the English-language press,is a Saudi Arabian princess and philanthropist. Princess Ameerah assumed the role of Vice Chairperson of Al-Waleed bin Talal Foundation and member of the board of trustees at Silatech.
Princess Ameerah is married to Prince al-Waleed bin Talal. She is his fourth wife and stepmother to his two children from a previous marriage.
Princess Ameerah has spoken out publicly in the US on NBC’s Today, CNN International and NPR, as well as in Time magazine and Foreign Policy Magazine in support of both women’s right to drive in her country of Saudi Arabia and the broader issue of women’s overall empowerment to contribute fully in Saudi society.She has been featured in Newsweek, The Daily Beast, and The Huffington Post and was interviewed by Piers Morgan. She spoke in a special session at the 2011 Clinton Global Initiative titled “Voices for Change in the Middle East & North Africa,” in which she discussed her views on the current movements for change in the region with President Clinton. Her self-described approach to reform is one of “evolution, not revolution,” and it is this positive and determined perspective that defines her view of the future of her country. Princess Ameerah was recently interviewed by Charlie Rose on Bloomberg to speak about her work for equal rights and women’s empowerment in Saudi Arabia through Alwaleed Foundations.
Her Personal Style
Princess Ameerah is very girly. Look at her - many of her outfits feature lace, the color pink, flowy fabrics. Like many of the Middle Eastern royals, Ameerah dresses modestly, but manages to make it sexy. Instead of turning them humble or matronly, the lace on her outfits adds some sex and class. And her hair is absolutely flawless. I firmly believe it’s because of Ameerah that the word “haircape” exists.
