  1. Looked better on Victoria. And it would have been a more flattering dress if it had been knee-length, and lined to the hem.

    1. I don't know about looking better on Victoria, and it should be lined to the hem on any length. Reminds me of the long, long ago photo of Diana as a nursery teacher's assistant before she married Charles.

    2. I think the reason that it looked better on Victoria is because Maxima has not styled it very well. This dress does not need much accesories it must be kept simple and because of the enormous flower, the necklace also with flower, the big hair, it is all too much. But the colour does look better on Victoria, that's true.

    4. Iris; Agree with you. Far too many things happening with this dress. First I would have taken away that necklace and earrings.

  2. Dieses Kleid scheint ein Favorit bei den royalen Damen zu sein. Ich finde auch, dass die Farbe besser zu Victoria passt. Außerdem scheint es durchsichtig zu sein und das ist leider ein No Go bei einem offiziellen Staatsbesuch.

  3. My opinion. The Queen Maxima looks stunning in this dress. She looks elegant and stylish.

  4. Now, next she comes with a red nose.

  5. Another A+ day for Maxima although I'm a little ambiguous on the big flower in her hair but it is creative. All these lace dresses seem to have short linings.
    They are color coordinated again - his ties and her outfits.

  6. She looks lovely - shame the dress is not lived and she chose not to wear a slip. Rookie error - she should have anticipated that a lace dress would quite possibly by see through from certain angles.

  8. Too see-through. Not appropriate.

  9. I looove that Elie Saab! She looks gorgeous. I'm curious, why does Queen Maxima always wear headpieces? Is it her style? Dutch royal protocol? (Anyways, I love her style)

  10. I'm not so sure that we can see through her dress in that photo. If you look again and more closely it might be sun glare. The white glare can be seen on the right side as well. I would think the dress lining would be a bit longer than that.
    I think the color is very pretty on her and I love the flower I her hair.
