I don't think they're loans. That was something said in one article one time a long time ago, and I think it was put forward to justify her clothing addiction. I strongly suspect she owns most, if not all, of the clothes she has worn as she pulls many of her evening gowns out of storage for photo shoots. She has even worn dresses for photos that she has never worn publicly. Conde Nast Traveller said in the article that accompanied her cover that she brought several of her own dresses to the photo shoot, including the off-white Elie Saab gown she ended up wearing (and which we've never seen publicly before). I'm also thinking of the Stephane Rolland couture gown she wore for photo shoots marking her 40th birthday.

the dress from the NY dinner is by Lebanese couture designer Rabih Kayrouz. Here are the pictures of dress and belt from the designer's website.

This is the first time I hear about this Lebanese designer. Thanks for the info, Shalu! I had instantly thought that the black dress was Lanvin. Both dresses are pretty, I like the blue one a bit more.

^ I've never heard of her either but I came across her by accident. It is very Lanvin-like but I'm not sure if I really like it. QR's had much better evening wear than this one.

I agree, this black gown looked rather strange on Rania as its top part is quite voluminous and bulky, whereas Rania is so thin. All in all, it's not a bad gown, IMO.

I think the dress Rania wore to the Ark fundraiser in London back in May was this Lanvin Fall 2009.

^ I think you're right. The shoulders are very characterictic and make this dress quite special.

Beautiful dress, love the gathering fabric at the neckline. Hair is nice but with the dress it looks quite messy, with that hair style she needs a very simple neckline dress.

From what I see the dress is beautiful. Her hairstyle is okay, but I dont like the haircolour.

The dress is fine. Queen Rania's hairstyle and makeup absolutely spoilt this look for me.

I like the dress on Q Rania a lot! It's very elegant and classy. She looks very tired and the hair and make-up don't help the situation here.

She needs an updated hair do, I think.

I agree with you Adamari about her extensive wardrobe. The dress at the Tech awards was chic but her hair and make up were not. The gathered neckline called for a chignon or something equally elegant instead, the hair, make up and neckline did not complement each other and she looked messy. She has been in the public eye long enough and has enough access to beautiful clothes, stylists etc to not make these mistakes after all this time.

A nice updo would've been nice. But the dress looks good.

I back up this opinion. Her hair looks as if she's just got out of bed and the color doesn't suit her well. The make up isn't perfect either...
