Photo by Shifaz Huthee “One did not simply put on a Dhivehi Libaas. It was a symbol. The outspoken celebration of a girl becoming a woman. To wear one was to show pride in, and embrace one’s feminine-hood.
Kurdskye (kurdish) lady in the national clothing & jewelry - this is actually not a Kurdish woman at all - her name is Jenn & she is a tribal bellydancer living in CA. It is still a beautiful picture though.
