Plus esthetically talking about Sarah, this outfit didn't add to her anything. If she or some people think that when you don't wear "traditional" outfits, it's more fashion. are more elegant so I don't agree...The proof are again the Moroccan royals, and Queen Noor...

And it's funny, I return you the question, because other royals decided to put their national cotumes or ethnic one in the level of folklore, that everybody should follow their example?!!! Also, talking about Swedish or Spanish royals women, if they don't wear "national" gowns, at least they continue to represent their conutries, by wearing lot of day outfits and evening gowns from designers from their countries...and this is a way of reprsentation. Of course, I don't say that every royal have to wear only brands of their countries, but there must be a balance between what they wear to represent their cultures,and what they take from international designers to belong the "International" circles...

Personally, I will continue to regret every occasion lost not wearing traditional, national or ethnic inspired gowns to represent ones' country and culture
Haya, Rania, and all the other Jordanian ladies wear thoubs by Jordanian designers, the most well-known of them being the label Kumbaz. As for Queen Noor, the caftans she wears are not exactly traditional Jordanian thoubs. Jordan is a very small country and it doesn't have well-known designers of western fashion. Surely a Swedish, Danish or Spanish designer cannot be compared to a Jordanian one! Designers in the developed world have all the benefit of publicity, money, and the ability to reach international markets.
Sheikha Mozah goes around in nothing but western couture on her trips abroad, not in an abaya. It's great that the Moroccans wear their caftans abroad. But that's no reason to expect others to do the same. Particularly since that's not the way it's done in most of the Middle East where western fashion is popular and is worn by many if not most women, including evening wear and wedding gowns. Even in conservative places like the UAE or Saudi Arabia a woman might be covered from head to toe but she'll most likely be wearing a western outfit underneath her abaya, I've seen it. Western designers count Arab princess and Sheikhas among their top clients.

Thanks for sharing salma, I didn't know about this event.
Like you said, Alia's thoub is by Kumbaz
So is Rym's thoub from Italy.

here are the pics from their website:
Alia's thoub
Rym's thoub(both are in the "Hashemi style" as mentioned by the website)

Princess Rym's thoub was lovely but disappointing that the overall look was not fit for the event. The hair looked messy, hardly any make up and no jewels. At the end of the day she is a princess, other attendants im sure made a big effort. If it was an award for her as a winner I would've expected more overall.

I know she is simple, but that doesn't mean no make up no hairstyle.

I´m glad I´m not a princess;-) If I wear expensive clothes I would be critisized for spending too much money while my people are trying to make a living....When I wear stuff from H&M or Topshop they would complain I should wear more elegant,specialized clothes and now you are picking on the Princesses for "recycling" outfits and accessoires...
I personally don´t like going shopping for fashion so I usually wear my dresses as long as I can That´s why I can really understand that royals might do the same if they feel comfortable with their wardrobe:-)
Btw I also think that Jordanian women look better in their national clothes, Queen Rania and Noor also choose more modern designs which I find attractive and it makes them stand out from the crowd when all the other women are wearing suits/evening gowns.They have a good balance of traditional and western clothes IMO.

You have misunderstood my posts. I never said that I think isn´t OK repeat clothes or accessories. But we indicate it, is a info.

All princesses recycled their clothes (see Princess Maxima, Princess Letizia, Princess Mary.... ) and of course, Jordanian princesses buy expensive clothes as the European princess.
