  1. Very flattering silhouette but depressing colours.

  2. This is perfect on Máxima (also on Ms Awada though I don't like her clutch) but I don't exactly understand the ladies' sour faces. Is it the sun?

    1. Yes, really, that surprised me too. Both ladies are very elegant and chic (I specialy like Ms. Awada's coat) but I find it strange that they don't talk and smile. Maybe Maxima spoiled us with her constant laugh and good mood and we miss it when she doesn't show that.

    3. Frowning trying to control her emotions? Queen Maxima heard the anthem of her country of birth Argentina and could be probably moved by it. Thats what i saw here in Holland on Youtube.

    4. You're right Masha, a scarlet red would have looked lovely!

  4. Love Juliana Awada ensemble however, I am not so keen on Maxima's ensemble. It just doesn't ring any bells for me and I would have thought it should have been teamed with either black or grey accessories, not beige.

    1. I was puzzled by the beige accessories too. Like how many neutrals (non-colours) can you put in one outfit? It just looks so dead.
      I wouldn´t have gone for (more) black or gray either (unless for a funeral). But if she had replaced the beige by a striking colour (red? pink? royal blue?), it would have brought the outfit to life and made it so much more cheerful.

    2. I was just thinking I loved the First Lady's clutch - it's Hermes and I think it's beautiful.

  5. This makes a beautiful silhouette for Maxima. I always love how she holds herself, how graceful she wears this hat with the beautiful chignon, great posture, great expression for a queen. (Side note: Skirt shpuld have been two inches longer) The first Lady in white is very elegant.
    I agree the nude shoes are not the best choice, if not grey or black, it could have gone more in a mustard yellowish light brown color like the clutch.

    1. I agree @Beth especially on the heels! I think you are right about the skirt too!

  6. For once that her hair is nice and not hanging down scraggily, she hides it with a totally unnecessary hat. All that beige clashes with her ensemble.

  7. I like Maxima's outfit. Well put together and cute hat. Beige with black and grey is interesting.
    Ms. Awada looks elegant but it seems a bit early in the year to be wearing all white.

  8. I like more Juliana Awada´s style here. Maxima´s skirt does not flatter her.

  9. Beautiful outfits for both ladies

  10. Another ugly and ridiculous hat.

  11. The flower applique has me wondering. Why don't ladies and gentlemen wear fresh flowers any more? A small corsage or boutonniere, or a simple bloom on a hat, or pinned to a handbag... Fresh flowers are so elegant and affordable. No one needs a prom-night rose or a "flower crown" (shudder) - there are simple stunning options from the many beautiful specimens available for modern tastes. Standing in the wind or heat for hours I can understand opting for an applique or jewelry, but even at weddings most guests do not wear flowers. Prince Charles, bless his heart, still plucks a bloom from his own garden once in awhile and cares nothing if it wilts a little. That is true class. There are (were, perhaps) many lovely keepers for flowers that are added to a buttonhole or discreetly pinned that provide support and moisture for a fresh blossom or nosegay. I can understand why people opt for semiprecious or crystal jewelry instead of precious designer jewelry but a fresh flower holds its own with the best of them.

  12. Beautiful! Love the whole ensemble and her hair looks fab too.

  13. I understand Argentina is going thru some bad times politically speaking, so maybe that's why there were not a lot of laughs. However a few weeks ago they went to Spain and Juliana and Letizia were like 2 school girls laughing and acting like best friends. Maybe there's not as much closeness with Maxima. I don't care so much for their outfits, especially Maxima's hat, so unnecessary! Her hair is good for a change.

  14. Ms. Awada looks stunning, we see these dress & coat outfits often amongst the Royal, but few as exquisite as this one, and very well combined with the clutch and shoes. I don't know where to begin with The Queen's outfit, the jacket has like a flare or small peplum that makes it very dated, the print of the skirt is rather blah, and the camisole underneath looks too thin and casual, I find the patent leather shoes totally out of sync with the outfit, plus personally I deeply dislike platforms, and the amount of accessories was excessive, thus making the whole ensemble rather baroque.
