yes I wouldnt be surprised if she borrows some of her evening gowns in particular. I have seen her wear jackets, skirts, pants etc more than once and twice but she doesnt wear most of her formal outfits more than once.

I agree with some members: it's always nice to see a woman wearing nice cloths/makeup and takes care of herself (or if she has money so others will take care of her). In other side, all this it does cost .... not everything is free. So if rania buys most of her gala outfits, then it's true, she spends a lot.

I come across this old article of the Time from: http://www.time.com/time/nation/arti...1282-3,00.html

"If her pillow talk with Abdullah was political, Rania's early public profile was predictably centered on her looks and her wardrobe. There were comparisons to Jacqueline Kennedy and Diana, Princess of Wales, and she became a favorite of celebrity interviewers, gossip columnists, fashion magazines and paparazzi on both sides of the Atlantic. Inevitably, this led to criticism from Amman's salon society, where her fondness for designer dresses and expensive European vacations is viewed as inappropriate for a poor country squeezed between the conflicts in Palestine and Iraq. The gossips call her "the handbag Queen," and even serious commentators grumble about palace over-spending — including on Rania's Challenger jet. She calls the criticism "part of the turf," but adds: "If the gossip gets out of hand, I may have to look at myself and ask, Am I doing something wrong?"


What I see contradictory, is that rania wears expensive dresses which costs hundreds of thousands of $ during charity events.
If she buys those outfits, then it doesn't sound at all credible.

The article that talks about Rania as a fashion victim appears in ABC newspaper. It was written by BEATRIZ CORTÁZAR.

".. Rania de Jordania quien, aparte de monísima, es una «fashion victim» de las que no quedan. Rania usa y abusa de los valentinos, pradas, givenchys y guccis hasta en situaciones tan corrientes como pasear con sus hijos, hacer «footing» por algún puerto donde atraque su yate o ir a una reunión de una ONG con la alta costura como bandera..."

Translation as given by Elsa, M.:

" Rania of Jordan, who despite being a gorgeous woman, is a fashion victim, as there are few. Rania uses and abuses of the valentinos, pradas, givenchys and guccis,even in such current situations as strolling with her children, footing by the port where her yacht is anchored, or going to a meeting of a ONG (welfare organization), hanging on the high couture flag."

Truely I dont think so,many of their clients are celebrities(famous hollywood stars,royalties and...)if they give discount or give their products free to someone because she's famous and can be a live and walking advertisment for them then they wouldn't be able to make any money as far as all of their clients are famous!i know of no ordinary person spending 30,000$ on a dress!

As I said before, I don’t know for sure if well known fashion designers give something for free, especially gala dresses that cost $$,$$$

But I heard some beginner designers they give gifts to celebrities; this helps them to be known: some sort of advertisement :)

I stand corrected. I thought Hola Magazine wrote the article. Also, there's no need for the atitude.

I strongly believe that she gets discounts for her outfits or she buys many outfits for the price of one, that is why we see her wearing wearing many dresses from one designer on some particular times. I do not think that the queen pays for everything and I'm not sure we can compare celebrities to royalty, don't royalty get special treatment by designers? I'm not sure about that, but I heard that Donald Trump got his wife's wedding gown for a discounted price, so is it possible that a Billionaire gets a discounted price while royalty dont?

Many celebrities just admit that they don't pay the close. Reson? fress publicity for the designer. Just repair that after Queen Rania start to wear E. S. now1 wear him a lot. Now you just listen speak about him. If you make a search in the net in queen rania, we gona found pics from E.S.. So she stay with wonderful dress and he don't sepend a peny in publicity. Many designer have this tipe of deals with celebritis.
I remember now, Sarah Jessica parker just pay half of the price from Manolo Blankis shoses and some are free, sooooooooo....they amke a deal and every one wine.

I agree with you farah and micas: celebrities do publicity for fashion designers. I guess it's a very good idea, and maybe it's only for RTW (ready to wear) … not for high couture, since those cost a lot and they are unique models, so I can’t imagine designers ask celebrities to show a unique models which is already represented by a model during a fashion show.

Queen Rania may wear a lot of designer clothes but she's no fashion victim because no one wears those clothes better than she does.
Ofcourse that doesnt mean I'm excusing her extravagance.
But she also does recycle her clothing contrary to what many people think and what I used to think. There was a great thread about the very subject on this forum a while ago.

Emmmmmm...Interesting observation..thanks Monalisa for posting the pictures (the ones in Madrid and the one in the Arabic magazine). In all cases, the pics of Rania in the Spanish wedding were not posted in Petra or in any jordanian press...

my comment wasnt about this article, I was referring to Hola magazine and the press in general.
They have no scruples about printing Rania's pictures and making money off them.
Anyway, the above article is exaggerated. It is an opinion expressed by the author, not the gospel truth. Rania has worn simple t-shirts and jeans many times on her vacations. I can post all the pictures here as proof.
I know she wears too many designer outfits, but I wont be unfair and exaggerate the matter just to make her look bad.
