Queen Rania of Jordan brought her typically understated style for her second visit to the White House in the last 14 months.
The 47-year-old royal, often regarded as one of the best dressed women in the world, joined US first lady Melania Trump, in a complementary blush pink dress, for afternoon tea at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Rania opted for a pair of satin trimmed crepe wide leg pants by Adeam with a matching top and a Loeffler Randall mini-tote, while Melania wore a midi Proenza Schouler dress with belt detail.
Rania's husband King Abdullah II is in Washington D.C. for a brief trip in the hope of influencing the Trump administration's Middle East peace plan. He yesterday met with President Trump and had dinner with Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen on Monday night.
The Jordanian royals first met the Trumps last year and were among the first international guests they hosted after the inauguration. The contrast between both Rania and Melania has been highlighted on social media after their second meeting, as the first lady's appearance comes days after she visited a migrant youth detention centre, a facility where children who have been forcibly removed from their parents crossing the border, wearing a jacket that says, 'I don't really care, do u?'
On the other hand, many have been quick to point out Rania's well documented human rights efforts during her reign 19-year reign, and she is the Honorary Chairperson for the United Nations Girls' Education Initiative. She previously said she hopes her advocacy can "empower people and make them believe that they can be role models and leaders for change."
Meanwhile, Mrs Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham hit back at the critics of the first lady's jacket.
"It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today’s important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe."
