Dictator Chic - All About Asma

Well, the Huffington Post has it right with these remarks about Asma Al-Assad

A couple weeks ago headlines were made when Syrian First Lady, Asma Al Assad invited the Obamas to Damascus. HuffPost readers ended up commenting more on Asma's beauty and less on what an Obama/Assad meeting would mean for the Middle East. And we couldn't help but notice the Syrian beauty either. In a region where the women love to cake on their make-up, it is very refreshing to see the wife of President Bashar al-Assad with very little on. (See the post "Less Is The New More: The Case For Taking Off Your Make-Up.")
We also noticed her love for Christian Louboutin platforms, sunglasses, and her signature wavy hair. From her natural look to her classic style, we picked some of our favorite Asma looks below.

Madame Assad is seriously beautiful and certainly way chic
from her statement jewelry to her louboutin shoes

Now, that the London born and educated, ex merchant banker is changing the way that the world sees her country, hopefully she can use her influence on her husband, and eventually do something about
Syria’s clandestine North Korean-abetted nuclear reactor project; support for the terrorists of Hezbollah and Hamas; fingerprints on the murder of Lebanon’s former prime minister; corrupt dealings with Saddam Hussein followed by support for terrorist attacks inside Iraq; horrific prisons; jailing and torture of dissidents, and whatnot
Much can change in the Middle East with influential women like Queen Rania of Jordon and Madame Al-Assad.
Digg this

She's beautiful and quite the snazzy dresser...love the bottega veneta clutch.

I won't even get into my feelings about women who attach themselves to men like her husband.

I wonder what Ahmadinejad's wife dresses like?
