Well I don't have a scanner but I have bought the magazine and I can quote you the details:

Vanity Fair have now anointed Rania into their Fashion Hall of Fame!

Quote:
"Actually, there are very few women who know how to dress," Marcel Proust remarked uncharitably "though some of them are quite wonderful."

Supreme among this year's wonderful few is Kate Moss, who captured the highest number of votes in the women's category. Her closest contender, Queen Rania, pulled in just slightly more than half of Moss's massive tally, Three times anointed, Queen Raiment and Kate the Great now ascent to our clotheshorses' greenest pasture, the Hall of Fame. There they will join fashion thoroughbred's Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (hasn't Queen Rania been called the "Jackie O of the Middle East?") and Audrey Hepburn.
It then shows a small picture of Rania - the one were she is at the Elysee Palace, wearing a beige skirt with pleats on the bottom, beige shoes, a black blouse and very cute black hand clasp bag and she is turning and smiling at the camera and her long hair is flowing down her back - she really looks so smart in that picture, stunning as ever.

The article specifically on her says:

Residence: Amman, Jordan
Age: 36 (isn't she 35 still?)
Personal Style: "Mood inspired, It has to feel right that day."
Favourite piece of clothing: "My Juicy tops-the softest, texture-wise, and, most important, long enough."
Favourite jewelry: "Anything by Yan Sicard at Fred."
Favourite Shoes: "Geox, Just seeing my children running free in them makes me love them."
Favourite causes: "Finding ways to bridge what I call the "hope gap" - the gap that exists between those in the world who have hope, opportunity and choice and those who don't."

I like her last quote - she said something similar on Oprah recently.

I must admit I have never heard of Yan Sicard, Geox or Juicy - and I thought I was quite into fashion, obviously not as much as I thought.

The magazine is quite interesting this month, if you like fashion.

I just love that outfit Humera, glad we agree.

It just is so well put together, the colours, her clutch bag is just perfect and she has a lovely smile on her face as she's walking. If she has advisors then they do a fantastic job. Although I think she seems to be a woman who knows what looks good on her now without someone having to tell her.

I love her smile, when you see certain "celebrities" like Victoria Beckham with this permanent pout on their faces - under some misguided impression it makes them look either mysterious or sexy (it does neither). You appreciate someone like Rania who uses what she has naturally to win admirers - a beaming smile.

Yes that is the outfit!

The picture they posted though was a side on view of her walking and her head is turned towards the camera.

Really great outfit, colouring really suits her.

Although I'm not sure what actually wouldn't suit her! She wears everything so well.

Rarely does she make an error IMO.

From Petra:

Queen Rania Al Abdullah Expresses Jordanians Sorrow over the situation in Lebanon and Gaza

She looks great as usual.

Unusual white shirt - with it tied around the front?

Quite a simple outfit, quite casual in a way.

King Receives Phone Call from Italian Prime Minister

Amman, Aug. 10 (Petra) – The Middle East crisis because of the Israeli aggression on Lebanon was discussed during a phone call between His Majesty King Abdullah II and Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi. Petra

Jordan's king fears for Mid-East

King Abdullah of Jordan has criticised the international community for only offering a piecemeal way of dealing with the crises in the Middle East.

He said an overall strategy was lacking and he feared for the region's future. In a BBC interview, the king urged key Western nations to listen to the views of Arab countries on Lebanon's future. BBC News

the above interview was conducted in Amman...the article above has a video link to the interview as well.

Does anyone else recall these events?
you're right, Queen Noor wore a winter hat, coat and gloves that one time, most probably due to the cold weather (everyone else was bundled up too) since she never wore a hat on the other two occassions (for Iman and Hashem's grad).
Infact I recall other Jordanian royal ladies like Haya and Aisha at these events and they never wore hats either.
