    3. Completely agree. Different and (imo) dress than Mary’s. Better cut at the ‘sleeves’ and much lovelier colour than the grey Valentino. Also the hat is that perfect choice that doesn’t compete with the dress, but rather enhances the whole outfit. Mathilde has a natural dignified elegance that really is hard to match.

  2. All ladies, look very elegant, maybe a one colour outfit given the solemnity of the event is the better choice for this occasion.Queen Maxima's hat, for my taste is over the top, it is not a parade but a serious event.

    1. She did wear the had before. Check that event and than you understand why she was wearing it now.
      It's symbolic and that makes it a very good choice. Don't judge by what you think is weird or over the top.

    2. I'm trying to find out what I should be making my judgement on, symbolic or otherwise. In the meantime, for me, as it is for "Carme", the hat is OTT (over the top).

    4. Anoniempje, I find it hard to understand what you mean by “symbolic”. A secret language for a small selected group of… cauliflowers?. It is virtually certain that such an enormous hat impede guests' view of the ceremony, what in this context is ruthless. I agree fully with Carme, and I would even say this hat is a little ridiculous.

  4. Too bad about the rain. The black umbrellas are really taking away from the splendor of the Japanese ladies.
    Very formal ceremony, everyone looking super regal. I think my winner here is Mary, and Victoria a close second. Mathilde´s caped outfit is super elegant too, but I prefer Mary´s take because the cape´s sides fall a bit better. The lady in the white skirt suit (standing next to Victoria) is superb as well (sorry, don´t know who she is).
    Now Maxima: not bad, but a tad too long, and that shade of gray just looks dead. Mary´s wearing a similar colour but the tiniest hue of blue makes all the difference.
    And then Letizia: I have yet to make up my mind what I think, but I´m afraid it´s going to be a no. The gown fits her so well, and it´s different. Also, the pearls are exquisite and her hair adornment is one of the most successful here. But overall, it´s a very cluttered look. The big flowers, on shiny fabric, with multiple colours and the belt picking up one while the hair band/clutch pick up another. And the sash clashing with all of it.
    I don´t like most of the hats on disply here to be honest. Mathilde went for a pillbox (much like the Japanese "uniform") but would have looked better with something softer. Victoria´s is a bit harsh as well (looking more posh than regal), Mary´s a bit dark, and I don´t like a big puffy flower right on the forehead. Which obviously applies to Maxima´s steroid flower as well. To me, the best hat is the blue one worn by the lady in the white skirt suit.
    Lastly, I find the lighting in the first two photos super unfortunate.
    In any case, very impressive gathering of royals and dignitaries from all over the world.

    6. You are right, and I stand corrected. It´s diamonds, not pearls. The close-up photo of Letizia wasn´t there yet when I wrote my comment, and it was a bit hard to see. With a necklace that size I thought it must be pearls (and big pearls at that), and now I see it´s massive diamonds. Very impressive.

  5. Oh, so many beautiful gowns! First prize for best dress matching with sash goes to Victoria, the colours are exquisite together, she looks fabulous. Mary and Mathilde got the same dress-with-a-cape memo, and I like them both although I prefer Mary's whole ensemble as the colours are so beautiful together and her hat is nicer. (However, is she wearing the sash correctly?). Maxima is putting on the full regalia show, which is due here, so full points. Laeticia is probably the most surprising; he dress is beautiful, but not her usual style. I like it though. Actually, this is a hit for all the royal ladies! I hope to see more and better pictures later on.

    2. Angie, everyone makes mistakes. This time Letizia got it quite wrong with this outfit. It may be ok in Spain, but this wasn’t about Spain or about Letizia. It was about the Japanese traditions and the utmost event in their imperial calendar. Letizia sticks out like a sore thumb. I am sure she didn’t mean to, and yet that’s just the reality. You can argue with it, won’t change the facts anyway. No one is perfect, not even your queen. Sorry to break the news. Still a very remarkable and respectable queen, nobody says anything different. Just got this one wrong. It happens. /CH

    1. This is the first time I choose Letizia over the others since Mary is usually my favorite. I agree that this is a more celebratory morning event and the exquisite fabric displaying Japans Yoshino cherry blossoms looks exquisite on Letizia. I think the overall look would have been better without the light green belt which I think clashes with the hair band and purse. Her diamond and emerald jewelry is stunning, and she looks immaculate and a breath of fresh air.

    2. I agree 100% with "anja"!! Beside this: Nearly all of the guests are looking quite bored or amused during this important ceremony.
      It's a pity that Queen Jetsun of Bhutan is rarely smiling.

  11. Hallo, mein Name ist Claudia, ich lese hier schon etwas länger - sehr interessiert - mit und möchte jetzt auch gerne mitschreiben. Ich interessiere mich sehr für Mode, bin aber nicht so die Expertin wie manche andere hier, würde aber gerne meine Meinung kundtun. Leider ist mein Englisch nicht so gut, dass ich Mode-Kritiken abgeben könnte, deshalb mache ich dies auf deutsch. Ich hoffe, das ist für euch in Ordnung so - wir sind hier sehr international, wie ich bereits festgestellt habe.
    Für mich das schönste Paar auf dieser Inthronisationsfeier ist das Königspaar aus Bhutan in ihren Landestrachten. Königin Mathilde finde ich leider zu grau, vor allem der Hut gefällt mir gar nicht. Das Blumenkleid von Königin Letizia mag ich gar nicht, ich finde leider immer, dass Blumenkleider an Nachthemden erinnern. Auch ihr Haarschmuck passt so gar nicht, sie wirkt älter. Königin Mathilde und Kronprinzessin Viktoria finde ich zeitlos elegant, ebenso wie Mary, deren floraler Hut mir wiederum nicht gefällt.
    Alles in allem war es sicher eine sehr formelle, sehr "steife" Feier, aber auch sehr elegant und international.

  12. Maxima for me looks like a bit "dancing gown", and the hat it's little too much, so for me it's not appropriate for this event. IMO
    Mary, I love that dress but the combination with the type and color of hat/shoes do not convince me. IMO
    Matilde looks a lovely dress, but the color it's not great on her and the complements making one color look are not the best choice for her, creates a very pale image. IMO
    Letizia, big surprise, so different than usual, it's not my favorite look on her, but inclusive I like this dress, however... well I don’t know… probably the royal band do not help but it’s a little too much color in one look. But I like the fact she choose an hair complement very similar but not equal to Japonese ladies, I like to think that it was purposeful and sow so empathy for their hosts . IMO
    Victoria it’s really my favorite look, great dress, great color on her, I would just change the hat, I like the one she is wearing but would prefer to see other a little small. IMO
    The Asian ladies with traditional looks are so lovely, I love the one that is wearing a orange Kimono (sorry for miss her name and country), she looks so beautiful. IMO

  14. Casi todas traen el vestido capa que ya uso Letizia hace tiempo. El más adecuado es el de ella pues las flores es lo que más aman los japoneses. No hay más que ver el vestido de ceremonia de Masako lleno de color. Los sombreros exagerados,en casi todos los casos , el de Máxima, ridiculo.La banda de ese color en honor a Japón, Mary no sé la ha puesto,ignoro por qué ha sido pero no me parece bien. Letizia se la ha puesto a pesar de que no conjuntaba mucho con su vestido Su tocado discreto y elegante, un acierto.

  16. The traditional dress dress of the Queen of Bhutan is stunning. She is gorgeous. I like Mary’s and Mathilde’s dresses with the capes best. I like Letizia’s dress but not the green belt. The color seems off and I don’t like it worn over her sash. Letizia and Maxima have my favorite headwear. I like the simplicity of Letizia’s and appreciate the significance of Maxima’s.

  25. How wonderful to have a glimpse of this magnificent occasion. May God bless the new emperor and empress with long life and a peaceful reign.

    Seeing the ladies bring their A-game is always a huge treat, and it's difficult to pick a "best dressed" here. Bhutan's Jetsun Pema is so beautiful that she needs neither hat nor extravagant jewelry to be a standout -- very unfair on all the other ladies, I must say -- lol 😁.

    While I feel that Maxima's gigantic flouffy rose is rather embarrassing, I'm grateful that it matches the subdued color of her dress, and I will take a previous commenter's word that there is some sort of special significance to this choice. I think that Willem Alexander and Maxima have a longtime friendly relationship with the imperial couple, going back to when they invited Naruhito and Masako to visit the Netherlands with little Princess Aiko, who is close in age to Crown Princess Catharina Amalia. The photos from that long-ago visit are heartwarming.

    It is a bit disappointing that Mary and Mathilde wore the same design -- but at least their outfits are different colors, and both women look really magnificent.

    ReplyDelete
  26. It seems to me that the flowers in Letizia’s dress as well as in Mary’s and Máxima’s headpieces are a nod to the Chrysantemum Throne...? Victoria’s headpiece probably as well, can’t see it properly. A regal and beautiful ceremony, and all the ladies look great — as do the men too. Masako’s magnificent kimono looks heavy.

  30. Queen Jetsun Pema makes me sigh. I think she looks faboulous. Maxima return your hat to the cabbage patch immediatly where it belongs, not on your head. I can't say I like Mary's pancake with a cabbage tucked under it either.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have to give this one to Letizia hands down, the incredible print honoring the Japanese culture, perfect silhouette, the very modern belt is what sets this dress apart from the rest, and much more in sync with the event .
    Her choice of headgear is impeccable, perfectly suited as not to obstruct the view of the people behind her, and very much in line with Spanish traditions, where elaborate hats aren't very popular.
    Queen Jetsun Pema is the embodiment of natural beauty and elegance.
    Mary and Mathilde look impeccable and elegant, but this cape dress is getting to be too common.
    Victoria also looks great, with a very flattering color.
    Máxima is a total no for me, I don't know the significance of the hat, but I am sure that it was over the top then as it is now, and it totally spoils the overall effect of the outfit.

As for Jetsun Pema, she looks breathtaking as usual, and I always enjoy seeing her, she just radiated beauty, agreed.

    3. I also noticed immediately that the fabric of Letizia's dress perfectly embodied Japanese art, and I also liked her belt and her hair band. I prefer this ensemble to the one she wore to the banquet. Queen Jetsun Pema is a true natural beauty, and CP Mary's dresses are stunning, both here and at the banquet. Empress Masako looked wonderful on both occasions and I am so pleased and happy for her. All these ladies did a fine sartorial job.

  33. I absolutely love, LOVE the color and clean lines of Mathilde's outfit. However, to my eyes it looks a bit stiff on her (in the picture at least); the stiffness is accentuated by the pillbox hat, what looks like shoulder pads, and the sparsity of accessories; it's almost as if the dress wears Mathilde and not the other way around. Mary's is better styled. The color is not my favorite but suits the occasion. It is a bit unfortunate the two of them wore such similar dresses. Overall, all royals brought their A-game to this event.

  35. So many fantastic outfits and so many favourite royals at the very top of their game.
    I think my favourite is the amazingly lovely Queen Jetsun Pema, followed a notch behind by Crown Princess Victoria---what a flattering style and colour for her. Just behind her comes Crown Princess Mary, who is as stylish and elegant as one would expect, with a colour just bright enough to stop it being drab. I will then go for a tie between Queen Mathilde and Queen Letizia. Mathilde's dress is lovely and she suits the plain fitted style but it's just not quite as showy as some of the others. Letizia, unusually, has too much going on--floral dress, pink bag and hat (love the hat), green belt, orange sash and just a shade behind is Queen Maxima--the dress a tad too long and just not quite as great as some of the others. Still a winner though. Superb event.

  39. It is so much fun to see pictures from such a grand ceremony such as this. The ladies, I am sure, gave much thought to dressing appropriately. While most are lovely, by far my favorite is Queen Jetsun Pema. Her ensemble, with its vibrant colors and interesting prints, is gorgeous. The red of her collar and her stole is such a luscious shade, and compliments her complexion. Her hair is impeccable--not a hair out of place. Her necklace and earrings are beautiful but not ostentatious. She is a real beauty.

    Mathilde also looks really good, but the hat makes the outfit way to matronly. We see that kind of style often the last time, I think she should change back to her usual style.
    The queen of Buthan also looks very, very good, she's a beautiful lady in a really beautiful traditonal dress.
