Her ability to combine on-trend directional dressing with her country’s conservative dress code proves HM Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan is a fashion icon in her very own right. The Queen did it again while visiting the new exhibits at the Children’s Museum of Jordan in Amman this week. Wearing a checked, button-up felt top from London-based label A.W.A.K.E, paired with a fluid, black midi skirt, the Queen looked as polished ever as she attended the Board of Trustees meeting. She accessorized her on-point outfit with black pointed toe pumps and Bulgari jewelry for an elegant yet everyday touch. Further proving her ability to mix local and international brands like a royal pro, Her Majesty completed the look with a handbag from Dubai-based luxury handbag label HALM.
Her Majesty’s sartorial choices have been a point of interest in recent weeks. Earlier this month, Queen Rania’s office released an official statement regarding recent criticisms of the royal’s wardrobe. “As her majesty has sought to represent Jordan properly, she has consistently maintained a balance between that and the moderation of spending. The vast majority of her majesty’s clothing is either loaned to her by the role of fashion, or presents as gifts, or purchased at reduced preferential rates,” explained the statement.
