Born in California, the 42-year-old Saudi princess is a fashion week veteran and the co-founder and director of D'NA, an exclusive Saudi Arabian-based boutique that has made waves across the Middle East and beyond. In 2016, Abdulaziz was named the first-ever editor-in-chief of Vogue Arabia, which debuted its print edition in March 2017 with Gigi Hadid wearing a hijab on the cover. One month later, with only two editions under her belt, Abdulaziz was fired from the publication. "I refused to compromise when I felt the publisher's approach conflicted with the values which underpin our readers and the role of the editor-in-chief in meeting those values in a truly authentic way," she told BoF.
