Who’s the most stylish royal of them all? That’ll be the Queen of Balmain — sorry, the Queen of Jordan.

Attending a gala dinner at the Royal Castle of Laken, in Brussels, with her husband, King Abdullah II of Jordan; Belgium’s King Philippe; and his wife, Queen Mathilde, Queen Rania dressed more like Kim Kardashian West than Cinderella. The 45-year-old from Kuwait paired a floor-length black skirt with sheer panels, tassel details, and embroidery with a white blouse featuring cropped trumpet sleeves.

While the fringe-hemmed piece once went down a runway with a tight black top (that, incidentally, Cara Delevingne wore recently), Queen Rania made the look a little less Gigi Hadid and a little more Kate Middleton with the cream silk blouse. As for accessories, she wore diamond leaf-shaped earrings with a simple tiara.
