With Amal Clooney absent from the 2016 Met Gala, Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan took the spot as the most high-profile Arab at the most fashionable affair of the year. She was also the only royal in attendance. Her Majesty donned a Valentino gown from the Fall 2016 collection and her choice appeared to eschew the “Manus X Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology” theme. Queen Rania looked radiant with soft smokey eye makeup in warm brown tones and pink gloss on her lips, while soft ringlet curls framed her face. The Valentino gown featured a black tulle skirt and whimsical feather-embellished swan that wrapped around her body across black, sheer netting. Queen Rania finished her look with discreet jewelry, cream stilettos, and a black clutch.
