Queen Rania of Jordan In Sara Battaglia – Austrian President Visit

Queen Rania and King Abdullah II of Jordan welcomed Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen, and his wife First Lady Doris Schmidauer to the Royal Hashemite Court in Jordan today (April 18).

I appreciate Queen Rania’s style any day of the week, but I was particular taken by this effortless look as temperatures soared in London today.

The look consisted of a simple tailored white shirt, tucked into a 50s style Sara Battaglia gingham skirt from the Spring 2018 collection, but if you delved deeper you’ll appreciate the directional take of this skirt with its built-in corset and asymmetrical button placket; accented with a bow for a sweet, feminine flourish.

The pale-pink pumps are gorgeous, while the top handle bag adds a sense of formality to the feel-good look.

Very Carolina Herrera in the overall styling. I adore this look.

King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of Jordan’s Netherlands Visit

King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of Jordan started their two day official visit to The Netherlands as the guests of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima today (March 20), where they were greeted with a state ceremony held at Noordeinde Palace.

The two Queens will have much to talk about, as they both work towards economic development and humanitarian causes around the world.

We used to seeing both ladies in stylish dresses, but on this occasion their sartorial styles were up against the elements.

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands: It’s not only Meghan Markle and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge who are serving up statement-making outerwear this season. I love how the simplicity and craftsmanship shines through in this caramel-hued coat, which the Queen wore over a gold lace Claes Iversen dress, paired with a slanted hat to solidify the formality of the look.

Queen Rania of Jordan: This colourful coat instantly brightens her gray and white outfit, and my mood, along with her uber chic accessories. The silhouette and bold colour felt fitting for the thoroughly modern Queen, who does not shy away from making a major fashion statement.

What an incredibly chic way to officially welcome the first day of Spring.

Queen Rania Of Jordan In Diamondogs & Reema Al Banna – UAE Visit

Queen Rania of Jordan recently paid a visit to the United Arab Emirates, where her refined style was on top form.

Her first outfit had her looking to the Diamondogs label from Beirut-born designer Pascale Habis. I love the artistic flourish of the white belted detail and cuffs against the simple black dress that was the picture of classic chicness. A Louis Vuitton bag rounded it out elegantly, although I would have opted for a non-printed pair of pumps to continue the streamlined appeal.

Her second look recognized UAE designer Reema Al Banna, and I particularly loved the easy fluidity of these pieces. The romantic femininity of the cornflower-blue blouse was a magnetically uplifting companion to the high-waist, pleated tailoring of the trousers.

Queen Rania of Jordan In Givenchy – The Sovereign’s Parade At Sandhurst

Queen Rania of Jordan attended the Sovereign’s Parade at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst on Friday (August 11) in Camberley, England.

I love how her red Givenchy Fall 2017 coat marries traditional craftsmanship with the contemporary art of construction.

Sadly, it’s the only piece of this look I like.

The skirt feels like it’s competing with the asymmetrical pleated hem of the coat, and the Louis Vuitton bag feels out of place here.

I would keep the bag and swap the white skirt for either a black pencil skirt or trousers.

Queen Rania of Jordan In Prabal Gurung – Raghadan Palace

With Ramadan starting on Friday, Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan hosted a group of Jordanian ladies for Iftar (a meal eaten by Muslims after sunset during Ramadan) on Tuesday (May 30) at Raghadan Palace in Jordan.

The Queen continues leave me in awe of her style by wearing a Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2017 dress in a cornflower blue hue.

Oozing with femininity thanks to the sheer fluted sleeves and fluttering hem, the look is event appropriate and aching chic all at the same time; especially with the addition of the statement necklace, which added a regal touch, and the studded bag.

When it comes to refined style, few can compete with Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan.

Cannes Fashion For Relief

The Fashion for Relief gala and runway show event was held during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Saturday (May 21), with attendees turning up the volume on their own fashion statements for the evening.

Naomi Campbell: Before gracing the runway at the event, the supermodel stunned in an Atelier Versace Spring 2017 gown with Santoni sandals and Bulgari jewels. The slithery, slit-to-there was Naomi’s version of a Grecian goddess look; I loved the movement of the diaphanous skirt and the shimmer of the knotted overlay that infused the look with an intriguing edge.

Uma Thurman: After her questionable last look, Uma redeemed herself a bit in this Atelier Versace embellished number styled with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. However, am I alone in thinking the dress felt a bit dated?

Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan
: I have a feeling that this Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci dress was far more beautifully perceived in person with its tonal embroidery and lace underskirt. Its pristine-white polish is what kept me most interested.

Lewis Hamilton
: The British race car driver didn’t leave his sporty edge at home, bringing it to Cannes with this Gucci ‘Bee’ bomber jacket.

Runway To ‘Women In The World: Stories And Solutions’ – Queen Rania of Jordan In Lanvin

On Friday ‘The Daily Beast’, ‘Vital Voices’, Diane von Furstenberg, and the U.N. Foundation brought together many of the world’s most inspiring female leaders to host ‘Women in the World: Stories And Solutions’.

Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan was one of the guests who attended the conference on empowering women across the globe.

She looked beautiful wearing a floral print Lanvin Resort 2010 dress which she belted.

We’ve seen Carey Mulligan wear the same dress last year.

Queen Rania of Jordan’s dress was paired with a black tuxedo jacket, a black clutch, and pewter pumps which complemented the grey tones in her dress.

I love seeing royals wearing runway clothes.

We tend to believe that being a royal means wearing unfashionable clothes, but Queen Rania Of Jordan, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, and Princess Madeleine of Sweden continue to prove that theory to be wrong.
