Hi Mary Shawn...thanks for posting the pictures...I have looked at them, but outside of their hair, I don't see any resemblance between the two. In fact, QN looks much better today than she did in that particular picture. I don't know...I just can't see a resemblance. Maybe it's just me though.:)

Images similar or not?

Oh, I agree with that!!!! Poor Queen Alia side by side because of my awful posting doesn't look same as in photos.....hair is same but in magazine their features are similar......at least I think so. QN has had some work done and stylists definitely did a great job turning her into a stunning woman. This was a 77 photo before they had begun their work.....au naturel as it were. They're both lovely women in their own rights though. Thank you for your input!

Your welcome...I agree that they both are/were beautiful in their own rights. What kind of work did QN have done?

Noor: Work done?

If you look carefully at other photos I am trying to add during her early years, her nose seems streamlined. QA's was not; hence, some resemblance in earlier years there. Thank goodness, her lip collagen phase seems to have come and gone or been modified so they look more normal. In earlier shots, her lips are thinner. She was quoted as saying both she and KH participated in some face exercising program to enhance cheekbones and generally give more youthful appearance. Like Jackie Onassis, she seems to have had some "freshening up" around eyes w/in past few years. And a really great "stylist" can work wonders! Look at all the Hollywood "stars" and even late Princess Diana. They took her from her preference NOT to wear makeup to wearing it well, made her hair more lustruous with highlighting and selected a lovely wardrobe enhancing her overall "look." It's amazing what they can do!

Also, the photos I hope to post from Royal Jordanian Airline show a rather plain woman--no, plain isn't the word--unsophisticated in terms of "look" would be better. Her makeup was very minimal, her clothing was not her--very, very simple and at times unflattering w/bold plaids and such, and her hair was so often slicked back into ponytails which made her look not at all as lovely as it is now or in subsequent years.

hmm...
I see no resemblance at all.
I've seen early tv footage of both Noor and Alia and I dont think they look alike.
Queen Alia had very arab/middle eastern features, esp. the eyes. She also had the cute dimples and a totally different smile.
Queen Noor is also pretty, but in a different way. She's got more western features.

Resemblances

Dear,
With your permission I want to tell you tajt in my opinion both queens are very different. Queen Noor has Lebanon roots but in fact they don't appear on her face. In the oposite side, the died Queen Alia was palestinian and you can see this characteristic on her.

Thank you for feedback AND more photos!!!

:) Well, I seem to be outvoted on this one. In color, the definitely look different. The "People" article I got photos from caption the Lisa Halaby photo with "note resemblance to Queen Alia." And I did. But it was while looking at article and full-size images.....both had similar hair, both had that kind of gentle small smile, their noses--this was before QN had work done seemed similar.......Just my opinion but understand all of yours, too. IF I ever get that article published w/early photos of QN right after Hamzah's birth, the resemblance is not there. In fact, I would say the resemblance between QN then and now is not there, either. We all seem--well the majority at least--to think QN evolved into a beautiful dresser. In these photos, it looks exactly like what she described in her book about sending staffer to designers and THEY chose her wardrobe. It just isn't "her." And it's obvious the Parisian hairstylist she found in the 80s and hired for herself hadn't yet gotten ahold of her. (source: Washingtonian magazine). Her hair became so thick and lustruous later on......but in early shots, it seemed thin and rather limp. She was still pretty though. I really want you all to see photo of her w/Hamzah on her lap and arms around Haya and Ali, who were holding onto Hamzah. Nothing controversial about this one: It''s just so darn loving and cute!

I wonder if she thought QA was very beautiful too--as in, like the rest of us--and tried to get her "look." Her earlier designers were those used by QA she points out in her book. I do wish she had said more about her one meeting with QA at the airport in terms of impressions.

Really? Since Palestinians and Jordanians are exactly the same ethinic group, what are you talking about?

Yes

Well, you know that in spite of having lebanon roots in fact Queen Noor parents were American. In my opinion Queen Noor, very beatiful, of course could be consider, acording her face as American, Canadin or European.

There is no resemblance, IMO. However, I don't think that either woman is more beautiful than the other. Queen Alis possessed a unique beauty as does Queen Noor. They each simply have their own things about them that make them beautiful.

Queen Alia/Queen Noor First Meeting

In her autobiography, QN writes of meeting her father in Amman to welcome first jumbo jet to Royal Jordanian Airline. While grainy, this image shows (l-r) QA, KH, Najeeb Halaby and his daughter, Lisa. About a year later, Lisa would become Queen Noor after Queen Alia died in a helicopter crash.

Image will be in next post--sorry for the confusion; it would not allow public viewing....

You can really see why he would go for her--she resembled Alia.
