Making her way into Mecca to perform the religious pilgrimage Umrah, Egyptian actress Yasmine Abdel Aziz did something she doesn't normally do: she dutifully donned the formal Islamic dress and hijab.
Posting a picture on her Facebook page of her new religious look with the holy Kabah in the background, her fans went wild with comments.
According to the Middle East news portal Elaph, most of her Facebook stalkers encouraged her to keep wearing the hijab in her everyday life.
We'll see if she actually follows through on their requests to keep it conservative as she completes filming her new movie "Matloub Arees" (A Husband Wanted) with director Wael Ihsan as soon as she gets back from Saudi Arabia.
