QR looks great in traditional dresses and the above photos are the best examples. Wish she could wear them more often.

I still remember the black & white dress she wore when she visited Morocco. That one was really beautiful as well

The colors on it against the black look nice and bright.

I agree, the dress is quite old-fashioned and doesn't suit Haya at all. Besides, I prefer bright colours instead of black.

I think it is OK in itself, I just don't think it fits or suits her. Do the Jordanian royals have particular people who make their traditional dresses?

Fatina and Abla Asfour are designers based in Amman and their label is called Kumbaz.
Their dresses have been worn by members of the Jordanian royal family for years. Queen Rania has worn their creations from the start (at least 10 years now). I heard about them for the first time several years ago through a couple of articles on QR and this famous golden dress which was featured in one of Rania's very first photoshoots: Imageshack - 000iiy.jpg


An older article about them:

A clothes line fit for a queen - Chicago Tribune

. . . So they took Arab dresses such as the thoub, a black ankle-length robe with long sleeves which they transformed into an evening gown. Abayas, the mostly black overcoats worn by conservative women in the Arab world were molded into colorful empire-waisted gowns with dresses underneath. Formless Kaftans were paired with body-hugging gowns that could be seen through the light georgette material.

They added King Abdullah's stepsister, members of the sheikdoms in the Gulf and Queen Sofia of Spain to their clientele. Soon, Queen Rania began asking the sisters to design dresses for state visits and trips to rural communities.

"She wanted to promote a Jordanian modernized version of these dresses," Majali said.
