Headless and Faceless


All mannequins that I've seen here in Saudi Arabia are headless, and public images of women always have the faces blurred or pixelized. Somehow I don't quite understand why it's okay for the female mannequins to have bare legs like these or to show cleavage like many I have seen... It's perplexing to me.

Much of the clothing shown is meant to be worn outside (who wears a hoodie inside anyway). Of course in Saudi Arabia women are covered in black bags. Its a joke.

Hi Karol - Out in public, never. But if they are visiting close family or other women only, these things could be worn. Of course, enroute to their destination, the abaya would be worn over this clothing and once they arrive, then the abaya can be taken off for their visit.
