  1. I don´t mind the blue-and-green colour combo (much), but I find the outfit unworthy of a state visit welcome ceremony. The coat looks a bit shapeless (and the sleeves are too short); the material may well be valuable, but it comes across as rough, a bit like a carpet or blanket; the necklines of coat and dress are fighting; and those shoes just look cheap - they would let down any attempt at an elegant outfit.

  2. Blue, green, and purple. Okay. It was a choice. The President's wife looks lovely.

  3. Maxima's shoes in the last picture with the same combo are much nicer.

    1. Agree -- they are really beautiful shoes, and do look nicer than the other pair.

  5. Sorry, I don't like this outfit. The coat make Q Maxima looking very matronly together with her hairdo.

    Looking better with long hair.

    All in all she can do much better I know, sorry.

  6. I actually think that Maxima looks extremely chic here. This is a rather different look for her, and beautifully done. The coat does have volume but also great pared-down simplicity and is carefully tailored to convey (imo) a particular retro vibe. The colors, while bright, work well together.

  7. Bis auf die Pumps, die wirklich nicht elegant wirken, finde ich es ein gelungenes Outfit von Maxima.

  8. I do love the color combination, and I appreciate the 50' s vibe, the more I look at the pictures, the more I like it. Hate
    The shoes....

  9. Maxima's coat is like a big blue bag to me, no shape. I do like her hat and shoes.

  10. A color play for Maxima again.She looks good. Don't care for the shoes, but she seems to carry it off well.

  11. The big blue coat. Not a good look for Maxima.

  12. I love the colour combo and the coat, though it does seem too wide. The President#s wife's coat is dreadful---looks like an old mac someone has given her to throw on over her lovely red dress.

  13. I think Maxima looks good although I'm not sure about the green peaking out of the top. I don't mind the colour combination but I think more (or nothing) needs to be on show. For my personal taste the coat could be slightly smaller whilst still retaining the vintage vibe and style.

    The President's wife looks great - like the red with the beige coat.

  14. The colour of the coat is beautiful on Maxima, but not the shape or cut. Shame, she has a beautiful figure. I think, for a state visit, she definitely could have done better.

  15. I like the vintage feel of the coat. The fabric and color are nice. I don't mind the hat matching it either. I do not think the handbag needed to match. That is too much. Blue and green are a nice combination, but we needed to see more green. I think more green could have been brought in with the handbag and possibly the shoes. It should be a fun outfit, so that could have worked. Keeping that in mind, probably not the best choice for this event.
