He “Decided to highlight the impact that Vogue Arabia has had in the Middle East over the last three years with a joyous and fun representation of the region’s incredible women,” read an article on the magazine’s website.

What better way to represent joy and freshness than on the backdrop of a colorful set like the one of Hassan Hajjaj’s riad in Marrakech? Renowned for his Andy Warhol-like touch, Hajjaj helped set a vibrant scene for the three A-list ladies: Sheikha Hoor Al Qasimi, Assala Nasri, and Yousra.

“What each of these women is doing is iconic,” Hajjaj told Vogue Arabia during the shoot. “They are formidable and it’s been so great capturing them.”

This is Hajjaj’s second project of the year with the Vogue franchise, as he shot Billie Eilish for the March 2020 issue of the American Vogue.
