Rania Radiant As Ever In Japanese Garb For Tokyo Visit

22 DECEMBER 2006

Queen Rania who is well known for her style choices, proved she wasn't afraid to cast aside her designer outfits and step out in something completely different when she paid a visit to Japan this week. The elegant mum-of-four's chic ensembles have made her one of the world's most stylish royals, but the Jordanian queen was looking equally stunning in a formal kimono as she toured an educational establishment in Tokyo.

Wow indeed!
The Queen looks breathtakingly beautiful, and Princess Iman looks like a doll.
I thought Rania's dress at yesterday's dinner banquet had a Japanese flair, what a lovely surprise to actually see her in a kimono.

Were they only in Japan for 2 days? That seems like a very long trip for such a short stay!

I really liked her outfits for this trip. Stylish and professional in a queenly way (if you know what I mean). Much more appropriate than so many of her outfits on the Holland trip.

The only I didn't care for was the one she wore to have dinner with the Emperor and Empress. It seemed a strange cut and color. Though admitteldy I could not see the outfit very well from 2 pix we had.

I think Princess Iman is going to grow up to be a real beauty and QR's kimono is so pretty.
