Moroccan princess chosen most elegant UK royal wedding guest

Published:

The UK celebrity news magazine Hello has chosen Princess Lalla Salma, wife of Moroccan king Mohamed VI, as the most elegant and attractive guest of the recent royal wedding in the United Kingdom.

“The North African beauty—dressed in a pale pink and gold kaftan, the traditional clothing of her native country—easily triumphed in our most elegant woman competition, gaining 55 percent of our readers’ votes,” the magazine said.

Pippa Middleton came in second as she supported her sister, the bride Kate Middleton, throughout the wedding day.

The magazine wrote that “the battle for third place was closely fought with Charlene Wittstock—who is due to marry Prince Albert of Monaco this July—and Princess Letizia of Spain neck and neck most of the way.”

Lalla Salma was invited to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in London on April 29 among a selection of the official 1,900 guests.

In Morocco the kaftan is only worn by women and is the original Moroccan dress. It can be dressy casual to extremely formal depending on the materials used. They can be worn at dinner parties, engagement parties and weddings.
