For the occasion, Queen Rania maintained her streak of contemporary-meets-traditional style in an elegant white jalabiya. Embroidered with contrasting pink, red, and purple threads at the neckline, the piece also came with flowy lilac panels on each side of the dress. The royal echoed these details by matching them with a lilac triangular clutch from Lyn, founded by Jordanian designer Leen Abu Summaqa, and pointed-toe heels in a similar hue. She also elevated her signature hairstyle for the big day by wearing it with added volume, and swooped back and away from her face to show off a pair of purple earrings.
The ceremony was also attended by Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Al Hussein, Prince Hashem, Princess Iman, and members of the royal family, senior officials, officers, and members of the diplomatic corps. They took the opportunity to highlight the vision of Jordan’s future with the younger generation at its center and the country’s modernization drive.

Below, take a look at more photos from Jordan’s 76th Independence Day celebrations.

Photo: Instagram.com/queenraniaHM Queen Rania‘s royal wardrobe is often talked about and loved for its modest and style-forward pieces. However, a more significant facet of her looks is how she often makes a nod to Jordan with her sartorial picks, whether it’s by wearing a local designer or traditional numbers when meeting the people of the country as their queen. The royal recently stepped out to meet the Jordanian youth by paying a visit to the city of Al Salt on January 10. Known for always being dressed in stylish and occasion-appropriate ensembles, this time, Queen Rania showed her appreciation for the youth’s dedication to Jordanian heritage by reciprocating it with her own love for the country’s traditional attire.

The royal opted for a minimalistic look paired with the traditional Jordanian keffiyeh scarf. Her look consisted of a plain off-white T-shirt and dark blue skinny jeans under an oversized white collared jacket. She topped it off with a red and white keffiyeh scarf loosely yet symbolically worn over her shoulders. As for her footwear, Queen Rania ditched heels and sported comfortable black sneakers and wore her hair down in soft waves.

Photos of her trip posted to social media show the royal interacting with members of the Al-Khader Center, Handrah Program, Balqawi Wedding Experience, and, Darbk Salek. Queen Rania took to her own Instagram to share: “So proud of Jordanian youth for their drive, dedication to their communities, and love of Jordanian heritage.”

Exclusive: Louis Vuitton Takes Over Petra and Wadi Rum for its Chapter 2 Campaign

Exclusive: Louis Vuitton Takes Over Petra and Wadi Rum for its Chapter 2 Campaign

Carved in red, pink and white sandstone plates, the pre-historic Jordanian Petra and the pleated sands of Wadi Rum embrace Louis Vuitton‘s trunks and handbags in the fashion house’s latest Chapter 2 campaign, which launches this week. Before the drop, Vogue Arabia gives fashion enthusiasts a rare peek into all the action from behind the scenes of the shoot, which was captured by photographer Viviane Sassen.
Featuring sprawling landscapes, rich earthy hues and even a littler arsenal of local schoolchildren in their element, Louis Vuitton’s Chapter 2 brings out the beauty of the Nabatean soft stone cliffs in this photo series, which spotlight the brand’s signature pieces. Among the most loved moments? A snapshot of the little models, dressed in all-black, curiously exploring Louis Vuitton’s trunks against a rosy, rustic backdrop.
Reflecting the core principles of the French fashion house, Sassen’s behind-the-scenes shots build a dreamy window into an escapist’s fantasy of travel. After all, one could say that ‘travel’ means ascension into a physical dimension of exploration, and new journeys that make way for introspection.
The Nabateans built Petra in the 3rd Century BC and what remains of their home today is a stunning collection of caves, temples, tombs, and storerooms. The city carries an economic significance too, as it linked camel caravans from the Mediterranean and Arabian Seas to Greece. Petra’s hydraulic engineering, iron-producing, and copper refining remains are still in existence today, with only 15% of the city uncovered.
Here are some poetic behind-the-scenes shots of Louis Vuitton’s latest Chapter 2 campaign:
