DUBAI: Queen Rania of Jordan turned to Saudi couturier Mohammed Ashi of Beirut-based label Ashi Studio for her 50th birthday look.
The Queen, whose special day is on Aug. 31, wore a long-sleeved crepe gown with embroidery and button detail in one of the shots.
The designer took to Instagram to express his gratitude and to send the mother-of-four his warm wishes. “I am very honored for Her Majesty Queen Rania chose to wear this regal dress, which was designed to radiate power. I wish her Majesty a Happy Birthday,” he wrote to his 833,000 followers.
The designer recently made headlines when Beyonce wore one of his creations, earlier this month, in her latest visual release, “Black is King.”
The look, which took 70 hours to make, consisted of a black bustier embellished with exotic black feathers.
Just last week, British pop sensation Ellie Goulding wore one of the designer’s eye-grabbing creations in her latest music video “Love I’m Given.”
The 33-year-old star, who gave us “Love Me Like You Do,” “Burn,” and “On My Mind,” wore a floor-length gold gown with puffed, off-the-shoulder sleeves.
