  1. Ah, j'aime beaucoup cet imprimé coloré floral avec un petit boutonnage dans le dos ; très bien coiffée.. Belles boucles d'oreilles dont la couleur est la même que le fond de sa robe... Superbes les escarpins !

    1. I love it too, quite apprpriate for this occasion. However to me it is not an hair style which would be appropriate for her less formal visit or activities, so she should not forget about her more casual hairstyle.

  5. beautiful dress and very nice hairstyle :-)
    I hope, we see her in that way of style more often again.
    The last time I often thought, that she dresses 'matronley' and way to old for her age.
    So this today is very much better :)

  6. Mathilde’s hair is styled beautifully (as usual!). The lines of this dress are very becoming to her, but I do not like its gaudy colors. Imo a solid color in a more muted shade would have suited her better and given more prominence to the dress’s pretty silhouette.

    1. I agree with you, Jane. Hair style is beautiful and I like the shoes. I prefer solid colors over busy florals. Solids focus more on the person, their face and expressions.

  7. Her hair looks lovely. The dress is a rich fabric and it looks beautiful on her. It's a long way from her turtlenecks with sweaters (not that there's anything wrong with that) and she really has blossomed in this role as Queen.

  8. The hair/makeup are beautiful. At first glance, at a distance I liked the dress, but the close up of the print was just 'too much'. I agree with a previous comment that the silhouette of the dress is lovely, the print just too much.... JT

  9. This floral is miles away from the matronly prints that we’ve seen lately, is vibrant, trendy and happy, I specially love the length it’s so flattering for her figure. Good choice of shoes and impeccable hair.

    1. The print is quite ugly and the length makes her look larger than she is.

  10. The Queen looks beautiful. Lovely dress, fit and length is perfect, fabric is stunning. Not so keen on the colour scheme, but that's just me! Choice of shoe colour is excellent. Her hair looks amazing, beautifully coffered, with natural makeup. Love the drop earrings.

  19. Mathilde looks wonderful. I also like the dress of the lady in the 10th picture!

  20. Beautyful and elegant. Cut and style, print and fabric of her dress together with her pinned up hair remember slightly the 50th, so her look is vintage though very up-to-date.
    Since the Queen seems to be a very motherly woman, it might be she sometimes appaers a bit 'matronley'as Anna B. wrote above, but I agree with Anna that yesterday Mathilde shrouded her caring nature quite youthfully.
