The navy blue gown with mermaid tail, by far, is the best dress worn by Queen Rania to the State visit to Spain in 2006.


The color, use of fabric, and cut works on her body type. I believe there is no other royal who could pull of that evening gown so effortlessly than Queen Rania.

Love it

wow, I forgot she wore so many fantastic gowns last year. I voted for April 24th, but May 9th would have been my second pick.

My choices:
1.May 9th
2. Oct 31
3. June 11

It was tough call between May 9th and Oct. 31st as it's the same dress just different colors.
I voted for May 9th as I liked the deeper color and hair was better. June 11th came in third.

I voted for Apr 24th! I love the blue dress. It is an understated elegance. I also liked the green (May 9th) dress but the sleeves seems a little casual to me.

The Oct 30th dress was the worst to me. The hair, tiara, and a scrunchy dress did not look good IMO.

I voted for April 24 (Gala dinner at Basman Palace, State visit from Spain).
The dress is gorgeous and suits Queen Rania enormously.

I couldn't decide between April 24 (state visit from Spain), October 31 (Reception at the Kurhaus - state visit to the Netherlands) and May 9 (Mosaic Foundation annual benefit gala, Washington).

Though she look perfect in all 3 cases, I liked different aspects in all cases: dress - April 24, hair - October 31, colour of the dress - May 9.

First 3 is the following for me:
1. April 24 (State visit from Spain).
2. October 31 (Reception at the Kurhaus, state visit to the Netherlands).
3. May 9 (visit to Washington).

Definitely Dress 1 !
This dress looks just gorgeous! Ranja's style is really amazing.
I love nearly all of her dresses, but No 1 is really special!

The gown worn during the Spanish State Visit is my favourite without a shadow of a doubt. It's such a stunning dress and she looked perfect in every respect.

It has to be one of my all-time favourite outfits that she has worn and is definitely in my Top Ten for Royals.

I vote for <4. May 25, 2006– Jordanian Independence Day, PM’s reception>

The style of this gown is traditional Jordanian style.

The gown worn for the Spanish state visit was the most appropriate she has worn, though the back imo should’ve not been so open.The cut, color and flower details were beautiful.What made it also great was the hair and make-up, it all added up.
I also think that the dresses worn in the year of 2006 were very disappointing; she has obtained for breath taking gowns in the past. I found these kind of boring, this does not include the Jordanian dresses

Although I think she is stunning, I just realized I don't like her evening gowns at all! (And I didn't realize until I looked at these photos.) In general, I don't like her big belts and all the fabric she has on her top, the ruching, that sort of thing. I know she has to dress more modestly than many famous women, but I would like to see her in something plainer. (I know, I'm not a fashionista!)

i don't mind the fabric on the top - but the belts....ugh!! i hate all the belts she wears now...almost every outfit, whether it is casual or formal, has to have a belt...i really liked it a few years ago, but now, i don't know, i think she should go back and look at her dresses from the late 1990s and early 2000...the ones without a belt were absolutely fantastic...now, the majority of her gowns i don't like...but i do love the thobes and i have to say the one she wore on the malaysian state visit was my favorite...absolutely stunning dress! plus, no belt!

I can't choose between April 24th and October 30th. They are both stunning to me.

Queen Rania more beautiful than the gowns....

I did not like any particular gown on Queen Rania better than the other.
These are garish colours and styles for a royal of this magnitude and sophistication.Also where is Queen Rania's waist? The belts and evening cummerbunds do nothing unless you have a emphatic waist.The waist has become a forgotten part of the female anatomy.Queen Rania was more beautiful than the gowns as usual. Her smile greater than any tiara. I think I will post some designs for her and see if she likes them by me...if that is permitted...
I voted however for the April 24 gown.Also what is with the frou frou at the neckline and ruffles on some gowns.?...some French court fashion carry over action on the gowns?Most unbecoming as the face is stunning with a plain portrait collar and that would shorten the stature so I would leave it alone...

No you are the Fashionista and we have the identical views.Queenrania has to be more understated than the understated.... possibly a mix of Audrey.. and Armani would be helpful.That ruching has to go...it is too matronly...
