  1. Top, nice colors, too short. Pants, lovely color. Hair, a disgrace for a Queen.

    1. That hair would be a disgrace on anyone

  3. Not a suitable top for her!

  4. Really nice outfit for Queen Maxima. The blue trousers are lovely and the voluminous top actually goes well with them despite their own volume. I think the accessories really tie in the look (except the earring which I don't really care for). I can see the face of the watch is either a light blue or reflecting the blue of the trousers. I like the functional clutch too. Great look overall. I am glad she sprung for a neutral color mask. A black one would have detracted from the great color scheme she has going here.

  5. I like the colour combinations and I like the stye of the top with the trousers. Both are nice ideas. The problem is that Maxima is now too 'big' for that top and because of that it doesn't fall correctly. It needs to be slightly longer and more loose - which is to say she has outgrown the size she is wearing.

  6. ????
    Who has invented this non-combination?
    Nothing in colour nor fabric has anything to do with another item.
    It looks like me when I just am not in the mood to think about what to wear....

  7. I must repeat Anon 9:26: Hair, a disgrace for a Queen. Not only hair, but her earings - always too big, like from some Varieté.

  8. Nice colours but that top doesn’t do anything for her. Same effect as yesterday’s skirt.

  9. I knew this top was a Natan design just by the fabric. The silhouette would have worked on a slender woman in cigarette pants. Maxima is just not the right woman for this kind of top. The general rule is to only wear volume on either the top or bottom, not both. That alone makes this outfit fail, but Maxima does not have the body to pull this off, even if the top had been longer. This only succeeds in making her look bigger than she probably is. The color combination is not bad, and I like the shoes she has paired with it. The earrings don't go with this outfit at all. This woman needs a stylist in the worst way.

  10. Like the trousers, the earrings and the shoes. The top is awful. It’s like an old fashioned maternity top and does absolutely nothing for Queen Maxima. The colour combo with the trousers doesn’t work well either. Not a good look.

  11. This is a bad combo. I can't even like the pieces separately. The top reminds me of the maternity clothing back in the day, and the fabric looks to be rather stiff.
    I can only like the shoes. Not a good outfit.

  12. Beautiful outfit! Looks great on Queen Máxima. Hair is perfect today.

  13. Throughout Europe, in blogs and magazines, and especially in her own country, Máxima is considered the epitome of elegance and chic.

      I doubt Italian women would consider her as the epitome of elegance!
      Luckily, we do have very different fashion standards.
      As to Maxima' s outfit ,I am wordless.
      A total miss for me.
      Her hair looks slightly better,though.

    2. I largely agree with you, Astrid. I would not say throughout Europe, in her country yes definitely, including the hair style. Maxima probably prefers to appear as an icone of her time, rather than the perfect icone of a queen.
      Also a question of generations : style rules or standards have their own evolution, which do not necessarily mean they are "better". Personally I don't want to have the concepts of the 60, 70s or even a bit later, regarded as today's overall standards, taking however into account some "retro" trends which are re-introduced.
      But our world is so, people want change! As mentioned recently by someone, this is a fashion blog we should take that, as well as new trends (eg length of trousers, depends on the legs of the owner), into account before criticizing. To me, clothes need however to be adapted to morphology without however being too strict on this ; particularly for people who are able to benefit from knowledgeable stylists.
      I am very much against suggesting ladies over 50 or 60 de facto need to have their hair cut.

    3. That tells us more about the journalists than about Maxima!

    4. Astrid, Not all over Europe - don't exaggerate. On the contrary, many people consider her hairstyle a mess, her hair looks unhealthy and ruined. Personally, I don't like her earrings (not just these in particular, but in general) - almost all of them are large, sometimes they remind me of a variety show or circus.
      I admit, she had very beautiful outfits - for example in official portraits, also at the coronation. Maybe because she worked with experienced stylists at the time. During her business trips, school visits, conferences, it gets worse.

    5. @Astrid... In her own country the epitome of elegance..... says it all really. I am Dutch myself. Dutch women are among the worst dressers in the world. Elegance in the Netherlands is opaque stockings with flat ankle boots....... or dresses compaired with leggings and sneakers.

  15. Not her best look. Oversized silhouettes on top and bottom are just not flattering to most women. Nathan has let her down before, but she continues to favour this designer. (V.M.)

  16. I agree with Maria from Italy.

  17. Hair: no - Earrings: not with the color top she is wearing - Top: makes her look preganant - Pants: ok color, and fit - Shoes: Ok color - Bag: nice looking details - Mask - ugly

  18. Sempre que vejo a rainha Máxima, me lembro do carnaval e dos desfiles das escolas de samba aqui do Brasil. Essa blusa é muito feia.

  19. The mix of this ensemble is unfortunately very unflattering. The material of the top is not very enhancing at best. The combination of clothing pieces is not good at all, colour or style.

  20. Très joli top qu'elle a déjà porté avec une jupe, ce qui la flatte beaucoup plus qu'avec un pantalon - J'envie ses boucles d'oreilles en forme de fleurs !
