Hollywood actors, models and social media mavens were invited to Saudi Arabia over the weekend to promote a three-day-long musical festival for young Saudis that took place in the capital, Riyadh. The efforts are aimed at boosting the economy while polishing the country's image abroad and appealing to the young. It's a pivot from just three years ago, when religious police would storm restaurants playing music and harass women in malls for showing their face or wearing red nail polish. (AP Photo/Amr Nabil)
