I love the dress she wore for the arrival of the visiting dignitaries.

Rania has worn a lot of Dior and YSL recently so it looks like she may have been loaned clothes from them recently.

Simply, but I like it. I think the neck scarf is recycled.

I dont like this look at all. The jacket doesnt seem to match the pants nicely and the silk blouse looks wrong. I dont recall seeing the scarf before, though nice color.

Maybe I am biased, but Queen Rania seems to be the only royal who finds such extraordinary colors to wear. They are such rich jewel tones, and suit her so well, with her long dark hair and dark eyes. Interestingly enough, those colors were fashionable in France on scarves a couple of winters ago. Because I love scarves and could never afford (nor have any real occasion to wear) a real dress, I bought a few to add to my collection which I display, just for visual pleasure. Again, it's those fabulous colors, you feel like you're dipping into a jewel trunk. Very "Arabian tales", fantastic !

Perhaps it's a bit of a generalisation but I think people from Middle Eastern and Asian cultures are more likely to wear brighter colours and put together colours that nromally wouldn't be associated wth each other. Personally I didn't think the colours were anything special but I have a sari with a similar colour scheme, which is probably why.

I think this may also be another Dior outfit.
That retro look looks great on her. It almost reminds me of Grace Kelly, the way the dress is belted. So both Mary of Denmark and Queen Rania are into a retro look, and they both carry it off very well.

I think you're right. I also think that western women (especially French women) desiring to be chic have been brainwashed into thinking that black and beige and neutrals are what makes women look sophisticated. I argue with my French friends about this all the time. I don't mind black but a bit of colorful embroidery will turn an outfit from drab to fabulous. I remember Princess Caroline wearing something similar (it was a velvet coat at a Monaco Circus festival) and the colorful embroidery brought the festivity of the occasion right out. Maybe Middle Eastern and Asian cultures have a better sense of festivity ? (This is off the subject, but still on the subject of color: Angelina Jolie did a lot of research on Indian colors when she played in one of her action movies and chose a saffran looking outfit to match the environment. Princess Diana, with Catherine Walker, always did that kind of research too when she visited foreign countries. The results were always spectacular). The morale of the story : as a royal, take risks with colors and honor the traditional colors of your own country or the countries you visit !

I doubt this. In my observation, Rania will only wear an outfit publicly a few times at most and sometimes only once. That's hardly a lot.

Very nice look but the bag is huge!! Too big for meeting a fellow head of state at the airport. Looks like she brought her carry-on down to the tarmac. Can't wait to see what she and the other royal ladies will wear tonight.

The dress is nice. I love that the belt looks to have been wrapped around twice - this is the sort of thing I like to see: She's still following a trend (which IMO she's done to death ) and now she's making it more her own!

I agree that the bag is quite big for the event, but its ok (any bigger may have been excessive IMO).

I find it interesting that for some reason both of the Queen's wore grey jackets: Galerías de imágenes
