I agree with you on that. Actually, I think why it looks better on the model is also because a certain attitude is needed to wear a dress like this. This is a 'fashionista" dress and needs to be worn as such. Now, Rania can't go around showing attitude--strutting and posing like a model/celebrity. She has to act in a more subdued manner, which doesn't go well with this "couture-y" dress. IMO, that's why I think she didn't look good in the Vionnet dress either. I think she should stick with simple, elegant cuts and styles as she really "works" them.

I couldn't agree more! I believe the Armani or Elie Saab type of gowns are more suitable for her... and her position. Classic yet modern.

I don't like these dresses. They look very conservative!

I just absolutely LOVE the white Greek goddess dress Queen Rania wore. It was absolutely stunning. I'm with you Princess Gertrude, I actually really liked Rami Kashou in Project Ruway. But his green dress for Queen Rania does not impress me. He should have had her wear one of his fabulous creations he made on the show, all of which were better than this green one, in my opinion.

The red dress with the blue belt and similar blue dress (that Salma posted) I think are ok, but a bit casual. I don't like to looseness of the fabric. They look a little sloppy to me, especailly for a Queen. I would have preferred something that had a little more structure maybe, not necessarily too fitted, just more structured. The style of these dresses reminds me of similar styles in the 80s.

The gucci dress for exampls is lovely buts its seen once and its not a runway to wear it a different color but thats just my opinion.
The blue and green Gucci dresses were either just borrowed for the night or simply given to the Queen by the designer, most like the former. It wouldn't make sense for her to buy two of the same designer evening dress. There's actually a fuschia version of it too which I personally loved and which Rania had worn that instead.

But it wouldnt have made sense for the designer to give two of the same pieces, they would give you different outfits unless they gave her one and she brought the other in a different color.

I've moved the latest posts on QRania's Zac Posen dress to the Old Fashion Discussion thread
Please note that all old discussion photos & posts will be moved to the thread but the thread rule is

If the post does not meet the above it will be removed.

I find it quite tacky when royals show arm pitts, I also think there is too much skin shown.
I like the style & the cut of the dress I also think it worked really well in black & white but yet I can see this dress on a much older women.
Also as an Armani dress which she has already one in black & white not sure why to get another one and not in a different color, the trimmings of the last one was also in white.

Love it - love it - love it! The cut is stunning on Queen Rania. The hair, the makeup, everything is perfect!

Me, too. I cannot decide if I like it or not. I think it is not Rania's best dress choice, but it looks better on her then on the runway.

too much revealing that no other 1st lady / queen from middle east or Islamic society can dare to wear in public and do not find different than the other she wore in state visit to Italy. her make up was perfect that she reminded me of an actress that I forgot ,sorry :)) but it looked better in pics than in video
