Queen Rania in MSGM, Philip Lim and Dior for a Business meeting

Earlier this week, Queen Rania of Jordan visited a group of entrepreneurs at the King Hussein Business Park in Amman, Jordan.
 
Powered by Zain, a leading telecom company in the Middle East, the Queen of Jordan learned more about Zoomaal, a crowdfunding platform for entrepreneurs in the Arab World.


For the engagement, Queen Rania wore a a dark blue pantsuit, a repeated MSGM top (available at TheOutnet for £114) and a 3.1 Philip Lim Pashli Mini Messenger bag.

Her Royal Majesty finished her look with a pair of Dior Asymmetrical Pumps in hand-braided navy and grey elastic.

The exotic pumps are currently available to order on the Dior website for £870.

I have to hand it to Queen Rania for making business attire that much fun.


Does this look make it for you or do you find it too random?

Princess Charlene in Diesel, Akris and Ralph Lauren for the Sainte-Dévote Tournament

A while ago Princess Charlene attended the Sainte-Dévote Tournament in Monte-Carlo.

Princess Charlene in Diesel Jeans
You may recall Charlene attending the same event last year in a Versace coat. This year, the Princess of Monaco wore a pair of Diesel skinny jeans, A simple white blouse and a repeated Akris Cassini 2 cape.


Charlene paired her outfit with grey Suede Tasella Booties from Ralph Lauren Collection.

The booties are Italian made of  "sumptuous suede" and are now marked down from $750 to $249 on the Ralph Lauren website.

Dior Exquise sunglasses in black and blue covered the eyes of her serene highness while Charlene's other pearl necklace (Which we will discuss soon) and the cross necklace graced her neck.


Finally, Charlene finished her look with the pearl stud earrings.


I love how casually elegant this look is, I didn't expect to see this jeans-cape combo from Charlene and I think the huge shape of the cape balances skinniness of these jeans. This, ladies and gentlemen, is smart casual at its best.

Princess Charlene in Akris for the 2015 Laureus World Sports Awards

The Laureus World Sports Awards might have been held in Shanghai this year, but the winner of the Sportsman of the Year, Novak Djokovic didn't have to travel to the other side of the world to receive his award this morning.


Princess Charlene handed it to him right from the Monte-Carlo Sporting Club where they were filmed and streamed live to all attendees at Shanghai Grand Theatre.


 The Princess wore a blue Akris leather peplum jacket under what seems to be pants and top combo. The jacket is made of lamb nappa leather and is currently available on Akris e-store for $4,390. The looks AMAZING on her, doesn't it?




The very cheerful princess debuted what a new pair of gold stud earrings and a necklace with  some pendant that I need to see a better picture of. The newly debuted cross necklace was also in sight.



I have to say I'm really surprised, the blog goes offline for a week only to find Charlene attending 3 events (We'll cover the 2 other ones later) and wearing 2 necklaces at once to two of those events, WOW! I just hope the jewelry is there to stay in her highness's style.

And We're Back!

 Firstly, let me thank everyone that has emailed, tweeted or asked about the blog through any social media channel. It felt amazing when I received the first email asking what happened to the blog.


So what happened to The Royal Couturier?

Basically, a lot of time and effort were put into this blog over the past few months in order to turn it into a place where we all can enjoy ourselves a little bit more. From the new design all the way to the new logo (Our coat of arms has a dress :D), the content will also have an evolution of its own.


We're still discussing royals, Princess Charlene, you're not off the hook. But we'll also be looking at more designers that I hope to see more people/royals supporting as well as covering some of the most important fashion events in Egypt and the Middle East. So from now on, together we'll be looking at everything royal and everything couture. The new features will be:
  • The Egyptian Couturier.
  • Train Tuesday/Thursday.
  • Fabric Friday.
  • I'm not telling you about the rest. :P

Finally, let me thank everyone that contributed over the past few months to make my vision of TRC come true:
  • Matej Bilić: banner and logo designer.
  • Eve M.: Webdesiger.
  • Hadeer Hameed.
  • Bassam ElMahy.
  • Ashrakut Ammar
  • Marwan Salim.
  • Hisham Sittin.
I would have had an emotional breakdown and stopped blogging if it weren't for you all, and you readers of course :)



So what are you waiting, start exploring!

Dinner with the Queens

Last week I was invited to dinner with 12 of Miss Earth beauty queens at Mirai, the pan Asian restaurant in Zamalek, Cairo.

The 12 beauties were in Egypt to participate in the Miss Eco-Queens beauty pageant 2015 that was held to support the Egyptian tourism. Dressed in their finest cocktail dresses and their crowns, the night was surely a royal affair.

One of my favorite dresses of the night was Miss UK's frock that had multi-colored floral embroideries. When we asked where she got from, the answer was "Just a boutique in London".


The highlight of the day though was when I asked Miss Chile if her crown was made of real stones only to have her saying no and placing the crown on my own head!


Luckily, the food was so awesome it made me get over that moment of awkward awesomeness.


One more thing to make the night feel even more royal? The dress of the lady on the right reminded me of the Valentino dress Queen Rania wore to Princess Iman's graduation last year!
