The Cover photo of vogue Saudi features Princess Hayfa bint Abdullah al-Saud posing behind the wheel of a red convertible has sparked debate and criticism as nearly dozen women activists remain behind bars.

In Vogue Arabia’s June edition, the Saudi Princess wearing leather gloves and high heels is seen behind the driving seat.

June issue of Vogue is devoted to the transforming strict Arab country. It is dedicated to “trailblazing women of Saudi Arabia”.
Earlier in an interview, the Saudi princess said, "In our country, there are some conservatives who fear change. For many, it’s all they have known,” She also added that personally, she support these changes.

Many took to Twitter and posted the Vogue cover with images of the detained activists photoshopped over the princess’s face.
