Taleedah Tamer is a Saudi Arabian model who appeared on the cover of the July/August issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. It is her first international magazine cover.
Prior to her work for Harper’s Bazaar, Tamer previously modeled for Korloff perfumes and the retailer Rubaiyat.
Saudi Arabia held its first ever fashion week in April of 2018. World famous designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Roberto Cavalli showed collections during their first fashion week.
However, just because Tamer is a young, rising model does not mean she is abandoning her education as she was recently looking at schools in Milan, Italy, to major in Economics & Management of Art, Culture, and Design.

The Saudi/Italian model Taleedah Tamer is on the brink of stardom, set to front her first international campaign this month and booked to walk the couture shows next season. Growing up in Jeddah, with her younger brother and sister, Najedah and Amin, she says that, “Being Saudi is who I am, it is my identity. I love the culture, it’s my heritage.”
Her father, Ayman Tamer, is chairman of Tamer Group, a leading healthcare and beauty company, and her mother, Cristina Tamer, is a former model, who was scouted in dance class at the age of 18, and went on to work for Giorgio Armani, Gianfranco Ferré and La Perla.
Having landed her first gig modeling for Korloff, then Rubaiyat, before Bazaar, studies are still paramount to Taleedah, who has just returned from Milan looking at schools to major in Economics & Management of Art, Culture and Design. Her ultimate vision is to incorporate CSR into her modeling career.
Harper’s Bazaar says Taleedah Tamer is Saudi Arabia’s “first supermodel.” She will appear at this year’s Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, which will be held from Tuesday, September 25, to Wednesday, October 3, in Paris, France.
2018 has been a progressive year for Saudi Arabia as they also lifted their ban on female drivers.
