Portrait of a Bodi woman in Salamago District of Omo Valley, Ethiopia

Traditional Maldivian. 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. Worn only on special occasions like your wedding ceremony or in the presence of royalty, boavalhu elhi libaas was the ultimate image of beauty and perfection among Maldivians.”
