I love the wideleg trousers featured in this Vogue set shot in Timbuktu. This is how I was dressed for the majority of my stay in Oman. I found it to be a modest respectful style for a non-muslim, to cover my hair with a hat and wear long loose pants. Jazzakallah kheiran all the women and men of Oman, who were respectful enough about my dress to let me learn how to love theirs! [What I don't like about this Vogue shoot is the Colonial overtones of say, that man carrying her purse in the background, or bits of the accompanying article---brilliant photographs though, and Liya Kebede is my favourite model].
