  1. Maxima you did so well on this state visit then why in God's name did this happen? Terrible, from dress to accessories no no no!

    1. I think you said all there is to say.

      Except what is that thing in her hair?

  2. It looks like an afternoon outdoor event so the dress is right for that. But others seem to consider it a very special dress-up thing, meeting with the king and queen. Is she wearing long tassels on her ears? Too bad the king couldn't avail himself, then, of cooler garments and everybody else, also. Must have been mixed messages there.

  3. Lovely summer dress, but looks more fitting for the beach.

    1. Those were my thoughts too Annabel ! Also can't put my finger on it but something here reminds me of a flamingo dancer? Perhaps the 'thing' in her hair and the tassel earrings.

  5. The accessories are mostly fine here in my view, I like shoes and hairdo with a slight Spanish/Latina feel. The earrings are superfluous.
    The dress, though not terrible in itself, is a desaster for the occasion and with that styling. It´s a super-casual summer dress suitable for beach or garden only; it cannot (must not) be used in an official or business or evening context, so her styling was bound to be a failure from the get-go.

    1. Yes, why not? Maybe we all worry too much.

  7. Maybe she wanted to look like a peasant girl. I don't think this was a good choice for her. She usually errs on the side of being over dressed but she missed the mark here.

  8. She looks nice in this (apart from whatever that red thing is in her hair) except NOT for an official event on a visit to a foreign country!
    It's too beachy, too peasant-girl...

  9. Je ne comprends pas son choix de robe. Il me semble que c'est plus bord de piscine que réception formelle!

  10. Strange - she seems t have changed her shoes during the event - I hope Hellen Electra you will allow this link.. http://68.media.tumblr.com/18250adbd0ae1c349f09d1847ab7abef/tumblr_orysffPZNB1r6jme9o7_400.jpg

  11. What's that in her hair and on her ears, some pieces from the curtains???
    I clearly like the dress, but maybe with a little white pearl-necklace?- Yesterday she looked so over the top on the fishmarket with all the gold and glitter. Maybe she changed the dates in her calendar? Maxima in this dress, Espadrilles and a basket on her arm, full of flowers and veggies - and she would look lovely for summer shopping on a southern market/ or beach.
    Well, a bit strange :)

  12. The dress isn't a good choice for the event, the earrings are ridiculous. And do I spot two watches in her wrist? How weird.

  13. nee Maxima! dit is n mooi rok maar vir a dag by die strand....

  14. Lovely dress for a picnic, a stroll by the beach or even going to do grocery shopping on a hot summer day.
    What fails is the mix of of things that don't go with each other, the hair is too formal, the shoes kill the dress, the stuff in her hair is just strange, and ultimately it looks like a middle aged mom that borrowed a dress from her daughter's closet.

    1. Later on Maxima was wearing other shoes, and they are much better: http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty/gallery/2017062340084/queen-maxima-king-willem-alexander-netherlands-state-visit-italy-2017/13/

  15. I like the dress, but not for this occasion, the accessories are laughable. She looks funny.

  16. Pretty dress and I hate to be ageist but, it looks as thought it is something one of her daughters should be wearing.

  17. The dress is very nice, but I would have preferred sandals in colour white or nude.At the same time I think she wears too many accessories. All in all the best accessorie is her smile and she as always look radiant!!

  18. Definitely wrong footwear. No stilettos for this style dress. These kind of shoes must fit some image she has in her mind about making her legs look longer. But all people see is the misfit combination.
