It's no secret that Queen Rania of Jordan is an established style icon.

The 47-year-old royal has long been considered one of the most fashionable women in the world, but thanks to her Instagram feed, we finally get near-daily updates from her public appearances. To mark Amman Design Week in Jordan, the mother-of-four wore an inspiring black panel-suspender detail top and knee length skirt, with a white cotton round neck top and black caged heels.

Last month, she was one of the many high profile women in attendance at The Goalkeepers Global Goals Awards, appearing alongside The Netherlands' Queen Máxima and Denmark's Crown Princess Mary bringing style and substance to the event, aiming to introduce sustainable development by 2030.

Rania manages to maintain the boundaries of her faith with modest hemlines and covered up sleeves, while also injecting some modernity into what would otherwise be traditional dress.

And she recently got the Vogue seal of approval for it, "As a quick scroll through the Queen Consort's Instagram feed proves, her ability to integrate her global responsibilities and her religion's conservative style rules with her love of directional dressing make her a new sort of fashion icon."
