  1. I'm trying to wrap my head around that outfit. The color and fabric are lovely, especially in a rose garden. And I do think the layering is pretty but I wonder why the underskirt is that short. A few more inches would look better. The hat is vintage Maxima and she will never need an umbrella in that weather. It is so big that it hides her. (Maybe it is to hide her hair?)

  2. I also think the dress is a bit too sheer at the bottom, but it's a lovely colour and suits her.
    I love that hat! And it does hide her hair!

    1. True, Beth! Don't forget the beautiful roses - all like a painting... The hat is a great solution until she runs finally to the hairdresser ;) But the skirt? Tsss.... It looks so fragile, that part of the dress, just if a young, unexperienced seamstress tried to fix it on the top with helpless hands. - BUT: Picture 5 is wonderful! It needs a frame.

  6. A bit to big? Any bigger and she'd fly away. I remember how Grace Kelly was criticised when she arrived in Monaco for her 1956 wedding, wearing a white hat that was only half the size of this one.

    1. Another time, Lizzie... Grace stays my personal style-icon forever :)...
      I think, only Maxima can wear those big- or eccentric hats with great smile! Imagine Letizia: she would really fly away with it, ha ha.

  7. Try and analyse the theme, One should never underestimate such beauty, she is her own person and lovely. Yet I find her exquisite, sadly cant understand the fineness of her hair. but all the same I adore her.

  8. She looks like ... Maxima. So glamorous and unconventional.
    Somehow she always makes me smile. Even when her outfit/style looks quite outrageous (don't know anyone else who would look so wonderful with that umbrella hat). And such a wonderful colors and presence.
    Well done, Maxima!

  12. I would really like this dress if the underskirt wasn't as short as it is, the fabric and the colour is lovely and the outer length is very elegant.
