  1. Oh she looks pregnant, since it is probably not the case, a bad choice...

  3. This is a terrific cause, and I am delighted that Queen Maxima is supporting it. Her dress is quite nice — the only change I would make would be to switch the colors: gold for the bodice, and black below. This would draw the eye upward, creating a more figure-flattering look.

  4. At some point in life one has to realize she no longer has her high school figure and needs to start wearing clothes that fit your current weight. Unfortunately this dress looks uncomfortable on Queen Maxima. Maybe she should start looking for a new stylist that is going to be honest with her and encourage her to start wearing clothes that flatter her current size!

  5. OMG. Why this body shaming, just because her tummy is a bit more prominent? No visible tummy allowed for nonpregnant queens under 60 - and if there is one, fashion means to hide it? - As for the dress, I like it, and yes, color switch is a very good idea, because then those funny black pinnacles or peaks would show upwards and maybe that would be less awkward looking?

  7. I don't think the dress had anything to do with her not having her high school figure, or it's inappropriate for her body type, in my opinion the photo produces an optical illusion, and gives the impression of a round belly, we have seen recent pictures of her, and I am sure that it didn't grow overnight. It doesn't help that this dress is just not pretty. The busy and somewhat dated fabric, combined with the odd bodice, just doesn't work.

    1. Very much agreed. I see no body shaming in saying this dress just doesn't suit her at all. She is a beautiful woman, and wearing clothing that fits and flatters would just compliment her beauty.

  10. Looking at this picture, three things came to my mind: Did they colour coordinate, does Queen Maxima have foot/ leg pain (I happen to think her heels are way too high) and this dress with he tight black top and funny black arrows pointing down is just not a nice dress.
    The optical illusion of a belly I only noticed after other posters pointed it out.
    Queen Maxima ist a tall Women with a good figure, maybe she needs some advise how to dress for the Cameras
    as well as the courage to get off these horrible high heels!

  11. I think if the colours were reversed the overall look would be much better.

  12. It’s refreshing to see a royal lady look like 80% of the female population aren’t we all bloated sometimes? It’s unfortunate that the picture was taken from a lower angle, but thank God we still have some realistic royal ladies out here.

  14. El pelo como siempre con raices, de aparencia graso, mal peinado, el vestido nada favorecedor,tiene que cambiar la manera de presentarse, da la impresion no hace ningun esfuerzo para presentarse como conviene a su rango.

  15. El 80% por cierto de las mujeres no tienen, peluquero, chofer, cocinero, tampoco tienen los medios economicos para cambiar de ropa, zapatos...., sin embargo nos presentamos como debe ser.

    1. La señora que está a la izquierda de la reina acierta con su conjunto negro con detalles en rojo y castaño y consigue estar apropiada para la ocasión con un punto desenfadado y discreto a la vez. Mientras Máxima siga con su afición al estilo Natan seguirá llevando ropa que no la favorece.

  16. Think the photo is taken at an unflattering angle and the front hand clasp makes Queen Maxima's stomach appear more prominent than it is. I like the colour combo---has she worn this before? Agree that the light top and dark skirt would be more flattering. I like the dress of the lady standing next to her.
