  1. This is a great look for Queen Mathilde. Clean lines, no belt, and pleasant shade of blue. I would love to see a close up of her brooch--looks like a dragonfly.

  2. I hate the dress. From the back it makes her look like a penguin. The brooch is lovely. That's it.

  3. The dress suits the colour of the clouds behind them! :-) Colour coordinating with the weather...

  4. Maybe it's kitsch but I love when a couple match the wife dress with husband tie...
    They look wonderful!

  5. I love the color of the outfit, but something seems "off" about the whole ensemble. I don't like the hat which should be more significant - or left off. It seems to be just plunked on her head. The half-cape is an odd thing from the back. The dress is especially tight around her hips so that her stomach is emphasized and she looks like she is packed into it from the rear view. Rarely does a dress just fit her easily and comfortably. They're always tight.

    1. @KH, thank you, that is exactly. what I am thinking. I am sorry for Queen Mathilde. She is, I am sure, a lovely lady, insight and out. But she cannot dress to her best advantage. With all the money and opportunities she could do so much better. I do like her hair this time and the brooch.

    2. My thoughts too! I completely agree with you both, KH and HEDY.

  6. Such an elegant outfit. Modern, but classic all the same. And the hat makes it extraordinary. Lovely indeed.

  7. Willkommen in meiner Heimat!
    Gleich um die Ecke...schade, dass ich arbeiten musste.
    Toll sieht Königin Mathilde aus. Ein royaler Look.
    Nur das Wetter hätte wirklich besser sein können.
    Es ist das erste Mal, dass ich die Ehefrau von Bodo Ramelow sehe...die ist ja neben Mathilde super klein.

  8. eindelijk eens elegant en speciaal, ook mooi met dat hoedje. Filip blijft een knappe Koning.

  9. I love this outfit on her. A very light shade of blue as to not overwhelm. The way she's wearing her hat in a jaunty sideways view gives us a chance to see her hair. Usually it's loose and sometimes a bit unmanageable but here her hair is in a chignon, gently swept up and her hat flatters it. Yes, the brooch does look like a dragonfly. Very unusual.

  11. Love the hat, the hair, the brooch, the colour of the dress, the gloves, bag and shoes. Oh, and the colour co-ordination with the King’s tie. However, agree with KH and Hedy that the dress is too tight. It gives her a protruding stomach and the back view also looks too tight. Not sure of the half cape either. Even a full cape top to a dress can look restricting and the back view with wings is just odd. However, the Queen herself is just lovely.

  12. I love the colours and how well they coordinate, but the dress is just a bit too tight. This happens too often with Q. Mathilde’s clothes. Where are the tailors? Clothes should skim the body not cling and pull. (V.M.)
