Not wanting to be picky, but Iranian women don't wear the hijab (or anything like the curious outfit JB's handlers chose for her. (That hat was worthy of making it to Robert Maxwell's '10 biggest fashion disasters of the year' list.) They wear the chador, which is a far heavier outfit, (it can be a lot colder in Iran than further south in the Arabian Peninsula), and a real 'letter box' compared to the hijab, which can be quite flimsy. It's also quite often another (usually drab) colour rather than black.
