A staunch supporter of both women’s rights and local fashion, HM Queen Rania chose to champion Jordanian style ahead of International Women’s Day. Alongside His Majesty King Abdullah II, the royal hosted a number of Jordanian women from several governorates for lunch at Al Husseiniya Palace, to highlight the “vital political, economic, and cultural role of women in Jordanian society.”
At the meeting, Queen Rania was spotted wearing a cream-colored thobe by Jordanian designer Eman Al Ahmed, featuring beige and mint-hued embroidery. “I am honored that Her Majesty chose to mark such an important day wearing an Eman Al Ahmed thoub, hand made and embroidered here in Jordan,” says the designer. “Thank you Your Majesty for your support and the support you unwaveringly give to all the women in Jordan.” The modest piece was accessorized with a taupe handbag from another local creative: Dara Hamarneh, a Jordanian designer based between London and Amman. For her footwear, the royal picked cream suede pumps from one of her favorite shoe designers, Jennifer Chamandi from Lebanon. Queen Rania sported her signature beauty look, complementing her elegant ensemble. With her hair parted to the side and worn in big loose waves, the royal’s makeup featured bronzed cheeks and a touch of pink gloss on the cheeks.
The gathering also saw His Majesty stress the importance of women’s participation in Jordan’s development and modernization, while Queen Rania commended his support for Jordanian women and his faith in their capabilities. Queen Rania praised Jordanian women for excelling in various sectors while working to build families. “|Proud of the women that pour love into everything they do!” she wrote on Instagram.
