  1. Eine sehr schöne und moderne Variante der Staatsrobe. Königin Maxima weiß, was man wann am besten trägt. Auch der König sieht sehr gut aus. Beatrix wird vielleicht froh sein, dass dies alles hinter ihr liegt. Es ist so schön, sie wieder von Herzen lachen zu sehen!

  2. This poorly executed and utterly boring dress showcases the difference between Natan and proper couture. In previous years Dutch designer Jan Taminiau and Danish/Dutch designer Claes Iversen did so much better.
    Why QM so often chooses the Belgian dressmaker is as puzzling as the times she opts for unkempt hair.
    Sometimes we're lucky and get a stunning picture, sometimes we just get a lot to talk about....

    1. Yes, she missed a great opportunity to look 'tops.' The tailoring is not carefully done around the armseye, the shoulders, and the whole bodice, really. I would think that an interlining would give a crisper shape to it so it isn't sagging. She should use the tailor that her mother-in-law uses. Her clothes are ALWAYS well-made and fit her shape very nicely. And her fabrics are gorgeous!

  3. I think you are right Lloyd this dress is poorly executed but sure is boring; the color, the hat...she can do so much better.

  4. Maybe a compensation to that colourful inca-donut-pretzl-necklace-dress-something she wore recently at "ode to the master"?

  5. Natan must treat their clients very well personally. Mathilde seems devoted to them. Maria Theresa and Maxima return to them again and again.
    I'm kind of relieved to see Maxima in a more subdued ensemble for this rather solemn event. Her last creation actually made me wince a bit. I admire her bold style but she doesn't have to push so hard every time.

  6. They look like royals from a fairytale. Most royal of all royals. Look at this luxury. It is so beautiful.
    Their coronation was amazing. This dress is amazing...
    Belgian RF, Swedish RF, Spanish RF-they are all beautiful at special events but this is something special.

  7. En het collier, en ook de oorbellen en broche, zijn uit de verzameling van wijlen H.M. Koningin Juliana.

  8. Meh. Maybe she should have worn a tiara instead of that silly hat, but at least it covers her hair.
