Thanks humera to had take time to post those pictures,but the two pictures of the two dresses below are not supposed to be traditionnal dresses,they are made by jordanian designer,but they are not what we can call being traditionnal as it's for the others above!



Bad design from jordanian designers of dresses supposed to be contemporary dresses,the worst thing that rania wore during her queen days,but it was in the beganning !,she changed a lot from those days!

Lovely collections Humera. Thanks.
I wonder if rania dress is the same what the model wears of elie saab; Fall-Winter 2003-2004?
Yellow motifs look bit similar; maybe a front picture of rania can say more.

Nice,but the question is why rania wore those traditionnal dresses only for local events and visits?



Since now she's supposed to be a "fashion icon",and her taste is supposed to be to classy without any fashion mistakes why she doesn't weare them outside,to make them more knowen as did queen noor at the spanish wedding,and lastely when she met many celebrities(Ricky martin...) in USA,or like in the state visit which she did with late king Hussein to spain!

Elie Saab is a middle eastern designer so his dresses are always inspired in one way or another by middle eastern clothing. As for the blue dress, I was wondering if I should post that one or not but I decided to because it's not altogether "western"
Fashion designers often take their inspiration from various cultures. But it would be very difficult to point out the origin of these inpirations especially if they're not that obvious. I dont want to nitpick. I think the blue dress has an oriental touch. You can chose to look at it the way you'd like.

you're welcome abir.
You know I was wondering the same thing when I saw that pic a few days ago. But I wasn't sure. Now that I look at them together, its quite clear that the tie-dye pattern is the same and so is the embroidery.

Elie saab is a lebanese designer who made his proofs and evidences in western fashion whatever the inspiration ,to be accepted in the design tight circle by firsly being a member of the so called "l'académie française du design et de la haute couture" and "la chambre syndicale française de la haute couture"

The blue dress posted above is not by Elie saab,but by Givenchy!

QN has her own oriental dress style, which I like very much.
However I don’t see it similar 100% to Jordanian traditional dress; Most of her dresses have motif/fabric similar to Indian motifs/materials ...
I wonder who make QN dresses. Is a Jordanian designer?


In the other side, I guess Rania will never wear something similar to what QN or anybody else wears. She is a queen/first lady, and I believe she wants to be different from others and she will not copy them. Each has his own style.

Rania wears outfits with oriental inspiration from elie saab, plus of that they are oriental and very elegant dresses; so everyone who will see rania wearing that type of dresses will love that kind of dresses from Arab country/designer (traditional or not); since elie saab designs are inspired from ME region/history … he belongs to western high couture; but he works daily in Beirut, and he is lebanese; so we can't say he doesn't have any inspiration from orient ... his work has something different what other designers don't have.

Yet, I don’t know if there are starter fashion designers (like elie saab) in Jordan, so that rania can wear their outfits. Rania can also encourage jordanian traditional designers to introduce some fashion touches on traditional dresses … However it’s not a necessity since around the world some countries do and some prefer keeping traditional dress as it is and as it was since centuries :)

I know that. I was referring to the yellow dress.
And I also know that Elie Saab is a Lebanese designer. All one needs to is look at his catwalk shows and see that there's middle eastern influences in almost all of them. Im not saying this myself but if you listen to fashion watchers and watch Fashion File or Fashion television, you'll see that they always mention it as well. Thats what makes his clothes so different and feminine.
Once again, I know that the pictures of the dresses I've posted aren't all by Jordanian or even ME designers. My intention was to post pictures of dresses that are either wholly traditional or have the traditonal look/touches.
Which is precisely why I posted a clarification of what I considered "traditional"
I was hoping to avoid arguments and misunderstanding like this so people could just enjoy the pictures of Rania's clothes.
So, once again, try not to read too much into it.
*sigh*

thats what I meant. Rania doesnt have to wear dresses just by Jordanian or ME designers to showcase her ME/oriental style. If she does then good for her.
But unfortunately, I knew some people would try to nitpick and make an argument out of it.
Sometimes you just cant get a break!

I'm talking about jordanian inspiration,not only oriental as used Elie saab to do in some of his "haute couture" dresses,rania used to wear jordanian dresses before,bot not now any more.

In the opposit,if she made more knowen "Elie saab" ,even he was already famous in ME and Europe(since 1998 so before rania became a queen ,he alraedy opened his factory under his name of designer in Milano)!, before dressing rania!


She could encourage jordanian designers,but it seems it's not her preference,there are two young jordanian designers: Fatena&Abla Osfour,who used to participate in international events for fashion,and who make very nice contemporary dresses with jordanian inspiration,but rania never wore their dresses!

Well then thats a different argument and you should clarify that. But you've turned this into a debate about what's traditional and what isnt. And I have no time to debate that.
The pictures I've posted aren't exclusively about Jordanian designers and that wasnt my intention. Lets leave it at that.

Yes .. sometime is difficult to see similarities between original dress and what rania has :)
