Yo seem to forget the staple designers for her in Jordan KUMBAZ run by the Asfour sisters, who were also reponsible for Queen Ranias coronation dress, and the famous golden dress that she was photographed several years ago. They are also reponsible for Queen Noor being on the best dress list of Hello magazine more than twice.
They also design for Princess Haya, and several of the Sheikhat in the gulf region.
Amongst their customers are Trudi Styler, and Queen Sophia, and several of the lesser royals of europe.

Kumbaz is mentioned on the first page of this thread in this post. They are indeed wonderful designers and the Jordanian royal ladies seem to love them.
Queen Rania's coronation dress was by Elie Saab though.
I'd love to know which golden dress from several years ago you're talking about, perhaps you could provide us with a picture link?

Perhaps it may be an Oscar De La Renta gown.

A season or two ago, Mr. De La Renta did a whole collection that had capped sleeved gowns very similar to the one Queen Rania is wearing.

Nonetheless, I could be wrong. Maybe the gown is a Galliano, McQueen, or (wild guess here) Carolina Herrera. Ms. Herrera's cuts are very close, like De La Renta's, to the one worn Her Majesty.

Give me a minute to do some more research to find the answer.

Gran Guignol versus Elegance

I have to agree Little Star, the Princess looks stunning in more austere lines.
In fact I would say she would look fab in ARMANI . Crystal clear cut lines because she is so beautiful already.
Some of these outfits have been gran guignol and not elegant. too flouncy and decorated etc. I say Armani and not many more experimentations.
Beautiful!

Does anyone name the label of the dress she wore to the banquet with the Emperor and Empress of Japan on the recent trip?

No. but at the rate we are going we had better advise that they wear the labels on their foreheads so we can see.{humour}
The Queen is so beautiful;so kind and intelligent the label will never matter to me..

I absolutely love two jordanian dresses she wore, one, the coronation dress and second, the red dress she wore at Farah Dagastani's wedding.

I couldn't find a full frontal portrait of Queen Rania from the coronation day, so I just took a group picture and cropped it. I hope it doesn't look bad.
Queen Rania is like the a painting of the most beautiful lady on the top of the chocolate box...an oneiric vision to the eyes.She represents her country from her soul and yes those gowns of Jordanian origin are magnificent as she is.

I think we have our answers for definitive dressing of the Queen.
It is always difficult to attire a very beautiful woman.
In the pictures here the photo where she is wearing the "teal" or "muted blue" suit her immensely.The Queen is a Virgo and so is Lauren Bacall that other great style icon. I suggest she adopt the muted tones for every colour including muted yellow and brown. Anything muted and understated resembling the style of Lauren Bacall who was way ahead of her time is the thing.
I suggest therefore the abolition of turquoise and pink if any from the wardrobe.

This dress, I believe, looks the same as the one Rania wore in 1999. Except in the 2001 version, a yellow border has been added to the embroidery (Corbis):
1-2. 2001 version
3. 1999 version


Superb in ethnic clothing with a white and black backround only and any embelishments.{mirror work . etc.}Keep it distinct.

Queen Rania and Oleg Cassini

If I were the Queen I would ask Oleg Cassini for sketches and I would ask his opinion on everything. He would be one of my compasses and of course I would ask him to dinner with the KIng

Oleg Cassini died last March, so I don't think he's available.

Rania looks fantastic in Givenchy, Elie Saab, Oscar de la Renta. In the future I would like to see her branch out a bit more perhaps some from Dries van Noten, Proenza Schouler, and Sonia Rykiel.

Sorry to hear about Oleg.
I have to agree about Oscar de La Renta .
A definitive designer for Queen Rania's beauty.

Queen Rania attended an evening celebration for King Abdullah's birthday and wore this lovely thobe. I don't think it's been worn before, but somebody else might have a better idea

an update.....

A look at the dresses worn by Rania in the month or so of 2006, it really was a good year in terms of the seeing the Queen in a whole bunch of new gowns after a comparitively dry spell between 2004 and 2005 (some of the petra links previously posted no longer work so I've included those dresses as well)


November 18, 2006 – State visit from Singapore


December 1, 2006 – State visit to India

December 21, 2006 (back view)– dinner at the Imperial Palace, official visit to Japan

Front views of the above dress:

December 9, 2006 – visiting development projects
