No, there were taken during Prince Hamzah's wedding in 2004 and if I remember correctly that beautiful dress was never recycled in public (maybe has in private)

If I remember correctly its by Dominique Sirop Couture.
He used the same fabric for Queen Sonja of Norway around the same time of the dress.

Interesting info, thanks Dazzling Perhaps QR hasn't worn it again, because she had borrowed it, who knows?

She does borrow alot of her gla gowns so it may be the case that this was borrowed, although in this instance I think that is unlikely.

Thank you for re-posting the gorgeous Rochas gowns she wore at the Time Gala. They were both stunning and elegant, especially the mint green dress.

I can say only one: Queen Rania is so beautiful, elegant and amazing!
I think it was her best evening dress.

I dont think it was borrowed, it has been mentioned over and over again that Rania does buy alot of couture and I doubt that high couture designers will just let her borrow an A-Z custom made dress which isnt going to get publicity lik eon the red carpet if you know what I mean.
I think she does get special prices since many would like to dress her.
Also, none of her gowns have been recycled to what I remember which are couture. She has worn couture to a private wedding in Jordan which was Elie Saab and never worn in public.

Little Star, I didnt know she also borrowed eveningwear, I thought it was only daytime wear.

She said in an interview some time ago that she borrows alot of her wardrobe, including gala gowns.

Moreover, after QEII she is probably one of the most famous royal women around and is well-known amongst top designers. It makes perfect sense for them to dress her both during the day and at night.

For example, during her trip to Italy the majority of her wardrobe, with the exception of her Stephen Rolland gown, was by Italian designers. That's no coincidence and imo it wouldn't surprise me if she wore those dresses for free. Her visit received alot of publicity in the Italian media.

I find the borrowing very interesting in the dressing of royals. Who is responsible for marketing and releasing which designer a royal wore, the royals press office? or the designer's pr department?


Futher, why do some royals have to purchase (eg: CP Mary or CP Maxima) and some wear for advertising purposes?

Queen Rania doesn't "advertise" or "promote" the designers that she wears specifically. Her office doesn't issue a press release everytime she wears a new gown declaring who it is by and whether she purchased the outfit or not. She has said in the past that she borrows items because it is more economical but has never gone into any details of which designer, how the arrangement came about etc.

Most of the time we know who she is wearing thanks to some very eagle-eyed posters on this board like dazzling, salma and chelsea who identify certain pieces.

As for women like Mary, I imagine that they buy their clothing because frankly, they don't have the international clout, fame or admiration that Rania does. It wouldn't really benefit any designer if they were to lend her their clothes.
