On October 23, 2020, Queen Mathilde of Belgium visited the exhibition 'Memling Now: Hans Memling in contemporary art' at the Museum of Sint-Janshospitaal in Bruges. The purpose of the visit was to support the cultural sector, which has been severely affected by the corona crisis in recent months.

The exhibition displays the paintings of Hans Memling, who is one of the most significant painters of the Burgundian Bruges genre. Hans Memling painted no less than four works for the medieval Sint-Janshospitaal, which are considered to be masterpieces amongst the artworks of the Flemish primitives. The world-renowned Ursula Shrine is one of them.

  1. I like this a lot! The belt may be a touch bit too snug but otherwise it's an impeccably fitted suit. I have a soft spot for blush tones and this one is gorgeous on the queen. The printed scarf adds interest and the matching mask is a cute touch.

  2. Yikes, the painting of the poor guy who got beheaded! That's my only comment. ~Laurel~

    1. That's Hans Memling's vision of the beheading of John the Baptist. A great work of art! Fashionwise that's a nice suit, although not the best for her ultralong legs and short torso,

    2. Thanks, Becca, I kind of wondered if it was a depiction of John the Baptist's death, but I wasn't sure. ~Laurel~

  3. I think this is awful - terrible jacket, too short, the belt is desperately unflattering and too high. The trousers are too tight around the gusset area.

    I like the colour but that's about it.

    1. The belt doesn't work because Mathilde is quite short-waisted (also narrow on top, wider on bottom). Perhaps a belt even half as wide as this one would have fit her figure better and might have given the illusion of a slimmer waist. That, or just dispense altogether with a belt. I would also like the jacket to be maybe 5cm longer. ~Laurel~

  4. Beautiful. The printed scarf and mask look fantastic with the soft color of the suit. I'm not one to usually like belted suit jackets, but this one i like, maybe because the pant legs drape so nicely.

  5. Very nice suit. Maybe the belt could be fastened a bit less tightly.

  6. Mathilde has such a lovely figure and stature, but she so often wears clothes that don't do it any justice. Her beautiful long legs that go on forever are highlighted here, but are further lengthened because the jacket looks so short, and flares out when it probably shouldn't; and that broad belt is so high that it seems to be propping up her bosom in some photos. However she doesn't look too bad in the very last photo, standing on front of... of that...whatever it is.

  7. Lovely blush shade, with matching scarf and mask, it was beautiful. The belt is not too wide/or narrow, tight/or not fitted, she looks spectacular.

    1. I think she looks terrible - the belt is dreadful, it's too wide, it's too high, the jacket is too short.

      The slacks are too fitted around the hips and she has camel toe.

      Far from spectacular or beautiful. In my opinion.

    2. Glad we each have our own opinions. One wonders what you consider terrible about a lovely outfit and beautiful Queen.

    3. I'm kind of wondering which bit you don't understand that I consider terrible about the outfit given I explained in my comment.

      Also, looking at my comment and scratching my head about where I apparently said anything about the Queen being terrible. Oh that's right - I didn't! So wonder no more - as I consider nothing about the Queen terrible other than this outfit.

      Perhaps best not to conflate someone's comment on clothing with criticism of a person.

  8. Lots to like here--the colour of the suit, the mask and scarf, the shoes and the trousers. If the jacket was not belted (1st choice) or if there was a narrower belt (2nd choice) it would be an ideal outfit.

  9. A potentially gorgeous outfit spoilt i.m.o. by too much clutter. A mask, a scarf, a wide belt, large belt loops, a large buckle and a long piece of belt end all within 30 centimetres of each other. The colour really looks good on her and the cut of the jacket around her neck is very flattering . That belt just makes her look thick around her middle and makes the jacket look too short which it is not really. If she ditched the belt and scarf she would look perfect

  10. This is a beautiful suit as it is, but is not for Mathilde. The color looks gorgeous on her, the scarf is a very nice subtle compliment to the suit, and great job matching the mask to the scarf. No one does masks like Mathilde. The cut of the pants is perfect with the shape of her body. The problem is with the jacket and belt. She only has a handful of outfits that really flatter her in the past several months, and they all have one thing in common. They do not draw attention to her waistline. For this jacket to work, it needed to be longer, and the belt needed to be removed. Mathilde, like Maxima, does not have a waist anymore. It comes with age sometimes, so you must learn to dress for your body. Only wearing belted clothes or adding a belt to everything you wear is not always the answer. With both Mathilde and Maxima, it makes them look bigger than they are. The belt on this jacket is pretty much in the same place as the other belts she wears, it just looks worse because it is so wide, and looks like she is wearing it higher. Being short-waisted, belts are hard to wear in the first place. Wearing a belt to create some shape just doesn't work. The only way to really get away with a belt when you are short-waisted is to wear it low slung around the hips, something I can't see Mathilde doing. The jacket needed to skim her body loosely, without any attention to her waist, and end 3-4 inches longer. Bringing the attention to her small shoulders and beautiful face should be her focus.

  11. I do like what she's wearing, but not on her! It looks so very baaaaad on her ... - Ellie

  12. Everything except the wide trousers looks great. I like the jacket and the coordinating scarf and mask are a nice touch, safety and style!

  13. Agree with most of you:
    The belt spoils a potentially beautifull suit.
    Very smart how the beautifull scarf seems to be United with the mask!

    Maybe this pantsuit could look well on a lady with another body type.
    A miss for me.
    I like only the pale pink shade which suits her blond hair and fair complexion.

  15. I guess we can pretty much all agree she looks great, but the belt isn’t the best choice for her silhouette. I think the jacket requires a belt, but a very thin one to work with her body shape. I thin (even dark metallic grey) belt could have been all this suit needed to make it really nice for Mathilde. CH

  16. Also think of the perspective, especially pics 4 and 6: they are made from a deeper position aiming upwards (sorry, English not my mother tongue). This worsens the long legs - short waist phenomenon. - Nice color, not so nice styling for her with that broad belt. (-Ann.)

  17. Wonderful, elegant suit in a beautiful colour. Unfortunately belt too high and top tight

  18. The Queen looks lovely in this ensemble, I love the addition of the silk scarf, very feminine.

  19. Superbe tailleur-pantalon dont la couleur rose-poudré lui va à merveille ; je pense qu'avec une ceinture plus étroite et moins haute, Mathilde aurait beaucoup plus d'allure. Délicat petit foulard en soie qui complète l'ensemble avec féminité !
