I'm not gonna say I like it,let me just say that this is a typical 80's dress.Which means that we can easily forgive her,she had no other choice...lol

I know I should speak about myself.I wanted to say that fashion in that decade wasn't that elegant and refined,but as a 27 year old,I'm very familiar with these dresses.My mother who was in her 20's during the 80's used to wear such dresses,so I respect them even if I don't like them.

I agree with you, Iakynthi. The 80s were not the best decade for fashion.

Considering the time, though, Queen Noor does look very nice in that dress.

Queen Noor's 1984 White Formal Dress

The long sleeve formal dress that Queen Noor in 1984 (with King Hussein) is wearing is by Valentino. I saw an old photo of the American socialite Ann Getty wearing it in a short sleeve version.

Queen Noor's 1984 White Formal Dress

Yes, Salma, you are correct. She wore alot of Valentino, especially thru the 1980's.

In addition, she says in her book "Leap of Faith" that in 1978 when she 1st got married that she needed a royal wardrobe asap (State visits , etc.), so she went to Valentino and was able to wear the modle sizes because she was still so thin. She said that she went to Valentino because a member of the Royal Jordanien family already shopped there..I am guessing princess Firyal...

Queen Noor & Valentino

Also, about 10 or 15 years ago, Valentino released I believe 30th edition book of his carear. My library had a copy in their reference section.. very big and heavy. I noticed the white dress in short sleeves & alot of formal dress's, suits and day dresses that were the same or very similiar to Queen Noor's and Queen Sofia of Spain. Both women I believe wore alot of Valentino in the 1980's.

Tunney11,your information are so enlightening!I'm glad you joined us!I'm sure these royal ladies could never go wrong by wearing Valentino's clothes.I would love to hear more about other designers/brands that Q.Noor and other ladies loved to wear.
