well you know, i thought about it for a while and looked at all the pictures from all the angles, the cuts are very similar, the collar and pockets appear the same, and so do the sleeves, ie. the very subtle flared detail right above the cuffs.
Plus the suit worn in Turkey looks less blue indoors (as in the Petra pics) so it could just be a question of lighting....which kind of makes sense since the pictures from the two previous occasions QR wore this jacket on were also taken indoors.

You have totally convinced me, Humera! Thanks for taking that extra time to get back to me about this with the new set of pics.

You're welcome Barbara:)
And now what do you think about the jacket Queen Rania wore on Sunday?
Picture from Petra

I only just noticed it, but I think it might be the same grey jacket we've been talking about. You can just make out the collar and pocket under the Queen's hair (on her right side)
I know its impossible to be completely sure since this is the only picture we have from this event.

Yes, you can just tell there's a breast pocket. Also the cuffs look right, not to mention the colour
This must be such a favourite jacket of the Queen. I like the metamorphosis that this jacket has gone through. Whether worn with a pair of pants (matching or black) or a skirt, the look is always different and surprising. I love ensembles where you can wear a jacket with matching pants as well as a skirt. You see that in stores often. Then the trick is to make it different each time, worn with different blouses/tops and accessories. Queen Rania is becoming a master at this. I love seeing the changes she makes to each outfit :)

I know. Its great seeing how one piece of clothing can make a completely different impact in different ensembles.
These days there's more and more emphasis on buying pieces of clothing that can be worn in more than one way, even at both formal and informal occasions. Its so much more practical, not to mention economical.
The gray pants and the skirt worn with the jacket must've been bought with this mind. Its such a timeless piece. Im sure the Queen can wear it years from now and it'll look just as stylish (like the white jacket on the last page)
Im actually looking forward to seeing her wear some more pieces from the past. She has worn some stunning outfits that have only been photographed once or twice.

I had a very hard time finding anything on Jordanian designers on the internet. I only have info. on one label that has been worn by Queen Rania. A long time ago I came across another Jordanian label which frequently designs for Rania, Noor and other members of the royal family, but I cant find anything on them on the internet. I will keep looking though.

In the meantime, here's an old article on a Jordanian fashion house run by two sisters, they have designed for both Queen Rania and Queen Noor.

Traditional and modern mix in successful designers' work
AMMAN Designed for the modern look, Fatina and Abla Asfour's tradition-inspired garments offer a glimpse of history while keeping up with modernity.
Their creations are distinguished by an abundance of fabric, luxurious colors and precision.
The garments are flattening for women, they are aesthetic. We concentrate on reflecting the beauty of the person, said Fatina, while showing various hand- and machine-embroidered garments in their workshop located between the fourth and fifth circles.
Fatina and Abla run a traditional garment design house in Amman, known as Kumbaz. It was set up 14 years ago to explore the country's rich heritage and its reflection on fashion and design.

Another article, with pictures of the designers' creations. The article is in French.

the queen has been recycling her outfits pretty much often these days, nevertheless she always looks gourgeous.

Queen Rania in the same stylish outfit, blue Roland Mouret jacket and black skirt (Pics from AFP/ANP & Profimedia)

edit: I just wanted to add that I love how QR can wear the same outfit for a formal event at night (Greece) and then during the day (Paris) with different hair and lighter makeup. Very versatile!

2. March 20, 2006 - Paris

HM Queen Rania is incredibly beautiful. The way she carries herself is something to be admired in my book.

Queen Rania met with retired military personnel on March 15th and wore these beige trousers:

I think she wore the same trousers when she visited Balqa on 12th April:

Queen Rania wore this outfit during the arrival ceremony for the Indonesian President and his wife:

It seems to be the exact outfit she wore when she attended the London Business College Course:

Queen Rania wearing this grey skirt, (as worn previously in Aqaba when the Mubaraks visited and when the Saudi Prince Talal visted) at the World Links Program on the 12th June.
