  2. I like M's dress style but not the pattern, too 'busy'

  3. The dress has an Asian feel and is similar to one that was worn on the Japan tour, maybe this was an extra that was not used.

  4. The official guests at the book fair in Frankfurt were king Philippe, queen Mathilde AND KING WILLEM ALEXANDER of the Netherlands, why are there no pictures of ALL THE ROYALS?????, after all king Wllem Alexander was ALSO an official guest with the Belgian king & queen. Please, show some pictures of BOTH the kings & queen of Belgium and The Netherlands.

    1. Yes, thank you! King Willem Alexander was there as well. This blog sometimes gets it wrong and only reports half of the story when there's a lot more going on.

    1. That's possible, after all, this is about fashion, and I don't see Willem in a pretty dress!

    2. Gosh, I was thinking the exact same thing! :) On the second picture I swear she's secretly trying to get rid of the miniaturized E. T. vehicle by tilting her head!

      (She looks lovely by the way.)

  8. The print of the dress is like a work of art. It has a variety of scenes. I find it interesting and lovely.

  9. I never want to see that ridiculous soup plate on her head again.
    The print is quite lovely but it is one of these thick, stiff fabrics again, a typical Natan atrocity. The skirt is too short for its enormous volume, it looks disproportional.

  10. Natan hat spawned one of those unbecoming, ill fitted dresses so rigid that can stand by themselves, Queen Mathilde has bought it and, what is worse, she's donned it. The chimney cowl placed on a side of the head doesn't look good either.

  11. From elegant in bright pink back to dated and odd in the blink of an eye - such a shame. It goes to show Mathilde can do it when she tries!
