really? hmm...well i kind of agree about the makeup, brown tones are usually not for brunettes. But I do like the green & black dress. I think the style lends itself well to a pregnant figure.
The yellow dress is pretty too. Perhaps if it was in a different colour or even a different shade of yellow, it'd look much better on Rania.
She once wore a really bright yellow jacket and it looked surprisingly good on her.

oh , I don't realise she was pregnant then. i guess that's why she looks so different. she looks great five (or six) month in pregnancy!

My vote goes to # 10 (October 2003 - State visit, Sweden: Option B)

Beautifully designed evening gown in the classical sense. Elie Saab is a maestro! The neutral colour tone of the dress suits Queen Rania to a tee and the draping and unusual single sleeve detail are very sensual. A very modern dress with classical elements. A Goddess is born!

Love
Barbara

I'm totally in love with Rania's dresses . No one on earth is, to my mind, as well-dressed as she is .


My all-time favourite dress is # 4 . ABSOLUTELY STUNNING !!!!

I think its a testimony to how much of a fashion inspiration and trend-setter Queen Rania is to have her outfits copied. I've drawn a few inspirations from some of these outfits myself. The designer gets credit ofcourse but its the unique touches in the Queen's dresses that make them stand out above the rest. I've seen other women wear Elie Saab and no one seems to make as striking an impression in his clothes as Rania, the only exception to that ofcourse was Halle Berry's 2001 Oscar dress.

btw..im so happy that my favourite dress is ahead in the poll!

Just a question, but hasn't Rania worn another black dress similar to this one?

except I'm pretty sure that the black design on the arms was in the style of a ribbon wound up her arm?

I love dress #4, the dark brown dress! Also love the blue and gold one. I think that the Elie Saab dresses look amazing because you can really see the incredible workmanship that goes into each one.

a Feast for the eye, this thread!
I voted dress nr. 6, the blue 'middle eastern' looking one! But I actually like her coronation gown equally.

It is just unbelievable to me how well Rania is carrying off her role as a Queen. These wonderful pictures prove it: while she is wearing some of the most wonderful and exquisite gowns created this side of the century, despite that, despite the fact she looks like a fairy tale queen who just stepped out from the pages of a children's book, she <still> manages to come across as friendly and approachable!! how does she do it?!

As an aside: I never thought much of Elie Saab's designs before, because I didn't think much on what they do/did for halle Berry. Somehow on Berry they seemed..cheesy..I don't know..somehow they missed the mark.
But on Rania..I didn't know until this thread that her amazing coronation gown was a Saab design! Or that incredible light-blue/turqoise one! But now I know..Thanks! :)
