Style Crush Queen Rania – Princess Series

Queen Rania is our latest style crush and is the first in our Princess series. With so many stylish royals we are spoilt for choice but Queen Rania is a clear favourite.  Known as a style icon around the world, the 44 year old regularly features on the lists of the best dressed, most beautiful and stylish.

Born in Kuwait to Palestinian parents, she attended the New English School in Kuwait.  She has a degree in Business Administration from the American University in Cairo and worked in marketing for both Citibank and Apple in Amman.

In 1993, she married King Abdullah II with whom she has 4 children and at 29 she became Queen of Jordan.  She is a strong and progressive female voice in the Arab world and a powerful advocate for education, health and women’s rights. She is praised for bringing understanding between the east and west. And this tech savvy royal even has a you-tube channel that she uses to answer questions and dispel general stereotypes.  She also provide her views on such topics as honor killings.

Queen Rania is a petite 5ft 4″ with long brown hair and an olive complexion.  She is always immaculately dressed and has a strong personal style that is modern, feminine and timeless.

Corporate Chic

Given Queen Rania’s high-profile and the many causes she represents, she is required to attend many public events and meetings. For these occasion she has a more corporate chic style, choosing tailored knee-length dresses often with belt to accentuate her waist. Her handbags are practical and sophisticated often in beige or other neutral colours.

As you can see she chooses not to wear the hijab on most occasions. However she has been seen wearing a veil when attending televised royal weddings.

In a September 2008 CNN televised interview, Queen Rania stated that she is not opposed to women choosing to wear the Islamic veil hijab of their own volition as long as it is not compulsory. She further noted that modern Islamic women must be entitled to wear any veil of their own individual choice and not be “pressured” by a traditionalist interpretation of Islamic law in society.

Whatever Queen Rania’s sartorial choices, you can be sure she will continue to be a favourite royal on both the political and fashion circuit.
