Shamim Jawad

Wife of Afghanistan’s ambassador to the United States

“Shamim is one of the most high-profile Afghan women in this country. She manages to be incredibly stylish and modern and, at the same time, dresses in a way that’s entirely appropriate for a woman from a Muslim country. She always makes understated choices and comes across as a woman of great substance. She’s very aware of the different streets she walks down.”

—Rachel Pearson, vice president of the Foundation for Afghanistan and president of Pearson & Associates
