The dress is very elegant. I just don't like the belt. It doesn't look lovely & it doesn't suit for the dress. Sometimes, belts look good with dresses but this belt doesn't suit for this dress. Just my opinion.

Really, I think the occasional black on Rania looks stunning and the belt just brings out the elegance in her. Yes Michelle does look wonderful sometimes with her belts and her "Jewel Tones" but sometimes you gotta go with the classics.
Oh and who says only Michelle Obama looks good with belts.

In my opinion, this outfit is quite beautiful. It reminds me something from Chanel House. The belt is very fashionable.

The dress is pretty but I don't think it does Queen Rania an justice. She has a wonderful body but in this dress she looks like of "droopy". I might like it more if she had pulled her hair back in a simple low pony tail.

I couldn't find the Queen Rania accessories thread so thought this was the most appropriate place for this story.

It's been reported in the past that Queen Rania is a fan of Sarah's Bags, a company whose handbags are produced by female prisoners. It turns out that that the bag she carried at Prince Felipe's wedding was by the company.

"A friend of Queen Rania's had visited the factory to buy her a gift and asked Sarah to put a slip of paper inside the handbag explaining that it had been made by prisoners. At the time, Sarah's handbags were not labelled because the project was in its infancy.

Queen Rania's bag bore the popular Arabic saying "Determination comes from those who are determined" and she carried it at the wedding of the crown prince of Spain."

A photo of the bag:

More about the company:
Sarah decided to set up her company as part of a rehabilitation program, whereby women at risk from economic depravation or the stigma of having served time in prison would learn valuable skills in return for a reliable income and a stable source of pride, dignity, and empowerment. In the process, these women would be helping to revamp the centuries’ old traditions of artisans and textile makers in the Middle East for the purpose of invigorating contemporary fashion. The arrangement turned out to be successful, innovative, and highly efficient.

Thanks a lot for the interesting information! Such a nice movement from Queen Rania, that's why I respect and admire her so much.

I like the neckline of the dress. It is very modern. Her hair and makeup are also very lovely.
