I like the dress, but I think Rania could have done
better with it, the whole look is okay but it could have been amazing
with a different coat and bag!

The outfit is based on these two pieces:
I really hope it’s an over-the-shelf outfit and not costum made, cause it really is not that cool!
On march 12th Queen Rania met Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall in Jordan.
this engagement Queen Rania wore a white and blue Antonio Berardi
dress, Rania’s dress is costum made, her version is longer with long

Leather mid-heel pump with a thin horsebit and interlocking G detail on the back heel.
- Self-covered heel, 3¼” (80mm)

color combination of this outfit wasn’t approved by many, especially
with the brown pumps, but for me, I’d pick the brown shoes over black
ones that would have been too flashy!

Although I’m a Gucci fan and I really loved this collection, I think Rania could have chosen something that would suit her skin tone better!
