For example you'll sometimes see her repeating some of her traditional thobes, like the one she wore at Farah Daghestani's wedding, which suggests that maybe those are made specially for her.
I did think sometimes that some things were lent to her, some of the gowns are too expensive and too own quit alot is not in there budget. But she did carry them off very well, well at least the ones when she first became a queen. It seems now, that her evening wear isnt all that great or intresting comparing to few years back.

Her traditional thobes are beautiful, the work and color. Suits her really well. Id like her to wear one to an official dinner/banquet, one with embroidery and or lace.

I really like some of her recent dresses a few of them are easily the best she has worn, imo. The blue she wore for the Spanish state visit and the gorgeous blue gown she wore during the conference in Jordan are 2 of my recent favourites.

I'm not sure how many evening gowns she has actually borrowed. While she doesn't wear them again for another event, I have seen her wear them in formal portraits and fashion shoots for magazines, which means they are hanging in her closet. I think it's her jewelry she tends to borrow. I've seen many pieces only once. The pieces she repeatedly wears are the ones I think she actually owns.

She tends to wear thobes or traditional style gowns in most official potrtraits though, which I think she probably has specially made anyway.

Time to make two new additions to this thread, from the recent state visit to the Netherlands:

October 30

October 31 - a green version of this dress was worn in Washington in May of this year.

Hi
does anyone know the designer of the dress Rania wore the 30th of October?

I have been looking some collections and even though the detail in the neck and collar look like one of the Elie Saab gowns she wore in the past, I think in one of the Versailles galas, the only close model I have found is a Stephen Burrows design that is not very close to the model and perhaps a Valentino.

Idon't think it's a normal blouse/shirt. Yes, it's looks like a classical blouse/shirt with a neck knot but in fact we can see that is more sofisticated with a shoulder halfnaked.

Yes, that's what I mean normal=classical and elegant which you can wear with trousers or skirt. When I look on her I remind Sharon Stone and her white shirt from few years ago.

I share the same opinion with u magnik,like the skirt,but the top imo is not very appropriate with that skirt for a gala wear,but the skirt and the top itself are beautiful.

I'm glad she's ventured away from Elie Saab, his dresses are beautiful, but incredibly elaborate. Simple, stylish gala gowns make a refreshing change, especially as she's worn some, really stunning ones in the last year.
