While Queen Rania of Jordan travels the world advocating for public health and education, she is creating standout fashion moments for herself. King Abdullah II’s wife is known for her modern sense of style, typically mixing bold colors with classic silhouettes. She also has a go-to choice when it comes to shoes.
Last week, Rania wore Jennifer Chamandi pumps three times for public engagements. At the Clinton Global Initiative meeting on Sept. 20 in New York, she dressed in a red floral-print Erdem skirt and blouse and paired it with navy blue Jennifer Chamandi pumps.
On the same day, Rania wore the London-based brand’s black suede pumps by Jennifer Chamandi at the Concordia Annual Summit. She also slipped into a similar pair from the brand for Queen Elizabeth II‘s funeral on Sept. 19 in London.
“Queen Rania has been such an incredible role model for my brand. I have always looked to her as a style icon and as a role model myself. She consistently lifts, empowers and inspires those around her,” Jennifer Chamandi, CEO and founder of the luxury footwear brand, exclusively told FN.
One of Queen Rania’s favorite styles from Jennifer Chamandi is the Lorenzo 105 mm pumps. She wore the Lorenzo heels in black suede with the signature “Eye of the Needle” strap to commemorate Jordan’s 75th Independence Day at Raghadan Palace in May 2021, and a burgundy suede version to visit the Turquoise Mountain Foundation in October 2021. It’s safe to say the royal has been a fan of the brand for a while now.
Chamandi is humbled that Rania has embraced her footwear brand. “She is the true embodiment of the Jennifer Chamandi woman,” said the designer.
