  1. It’s a good colour for Q.Max, and I like what I can see of the earrings. Overall a very nice outfit. (V.M.)

  2. You forgot to comb your hair in the morning, your Royal Highness.

    1. No, she didn't.

    2. Agree with Anon8:52, she did comb her hair, but that is the look she wants to have! and I think here it is acceptable or suitable.

  3. I like the color of the dress, makeup but I don't like the cut of the dress, they seem too bulky.
    Hair: they look unhealthy (especially at the ends), the roots of the hair are not colored.
    (Why do natural brunettes dye their hair on blond? In my opinion, it looks unnatural and especially, it is unhealthy, because it requires regular and frequent coloring = more chemistry to the scalp.)
    Back to Maxima: Sometimes her hair is nicely groomed, but more often it's a mess. I would advise her to shorten her hairstyle, some half-length bob. She is almost 50 years old and her long loose hair will no longer suit her.

    1. What a stupid comment. Why should you cut your hair at 50? It’s 2020 not 1920...

  5. She makes sure to have over the top jewelry, or hats, or outfits, or makeup, one wonders why she neglects to take care of the stringy hair. Nice smile

    1. Yes, you can't help but like her.
      I think she looks good in this frock. But what did she do with the open back bit?
      Could be a bit chilly.
      And she's playing "hide and seek" with us for the handbag, boots etc.

  7. Cette couleur Bordeaux/rose foncé est flatteuse pour Maxima avec ses cheveux blonds que je verrais bien avec une jolie coupe "carré dégradé" ; cela les tonifierait parce qu'ils sont très fins !

  8. Maybe there are new people to the blog. Maxima's hair has been discussed to the point of exhaustion.

    *Of course she did not forget to comb her hair. It always looks like that. It is damaged.
    *Why do brunettes dye their hair blonde? Why not? She looks fine with blonde hair. She needs a different stylist, one that uses better products, and knows how to color her hair with products that are not as harsh. Those products do exist. She does not invest any time or money into her hair, and this is the result. We cannot dismiss the possibility that she may have some health concern adding to the state of her hair. It is not incumbent upon her to report this to us.
    *She does not have to cut her hair short because of her age. That is made-up nonsense. It simply needs to be maintained.

    We all know these issues. Nothing changes. It is only noteworthy when she wears extensions.

    2. I actually thought she looked really nice. She looks good in strong colours. As to the hair, yes to all of this. I never really know if she’s wearing extensions. It is notable the hair has always been an issue and wonder if the contrast between the big Gala events where she looks spectacular and everyday events is so big that it highlights how different the appearance is. Whereas the Duchess of Cambridge looks pretty much the same.

      1. I know that "she didn't forget to comb her hair. It always looks like that. It is damaged." I agree. It looks damaged and uncombed.
      2. "Why do brunettes dye their hair blonde?" Why are they dissatisfied with what nature has given them? Why are they dissatisfied with the color they inherited from their ancestors? Brunettes are just as pretty as blondes. I am a supporter of freedom - in dress, in make-up in hair coloring, but I am also a supporter of freedom in expressing an opinion. And my opinion is that colors that are close to the original color of your hair will make women more comfortable.
      3. "hair products that are not as harsh" Each coloring is a chemical intervention, some products are rougher, others more gentle, but there is ALWAYS an intervention of chemistry. It's about how often we dye our hair. As a 45-year-old brunette with a copper shade, I dye my hair once every 3-4 months. If I wanted to have blond hair, I would have to dye it every 3-4 weeks. Sorry, I want to live as healthy as possible.
      4. "She does not have to cut her hair short because of her age!" I agree. She doesn't have to. But if she did, I'm sure she would look more chic. (I don't advice her very short hair, but a half-long one, something like Letizia from Spain wore a few years ago.)
      I understand that women in their forties do not like to give up some things - long curls, miniskirts and so on. But sometimes it is beneficial to do so.

    4. Oh dear, 12:16. It looks like you took my comments as a personal attack. I can assure you they were not. I addressed the comments made by two different anonymous commenters.

      To address your concerns:
      2. I can only speculate "Why are they (brunettes) dissatisfied with what nature has given them? Why are they dissatisfied with the color they inherited from their ancestors?" Hmmm...Do they think blondes have more fun? Do they think they might be more attractive to the opposite sex? Do they think their skin tone can carry it off? Maybe they just want to try something different. I could never answer that. I am brunette. I know I can't go blonde and would never try. I do know brunettes that are blonde and I think they look better that way. They can pull it off. I say good for them. Your right to have an opinion was not being challenged. The original comment asked, "Why do brunettes dye their hair blonde?" My answer was "Why not?" I said I thought she looked fine with blonde hair and that was my opinion. Both sides gave their opinion. If I thought she looked terrible with blonde hair, I would have said so.
      3. There are hair stylists that use products that are not as harsh on the hair. It is possible to color hair without bleach or strong developers. Just the roots should be touched up, not the entire head of hair. That can only happen if the proper shampoo and conditioner is being used to keep the color throughout. She does need a good trim, but not short or half the length off. It can be worked with if she makes the effort. I still maintain that she could have a health issue or vitamin deficiency contributing to her unhealthy hair. It was not always like this.
      4. Do not quote me unless you do it accurately. "She does not have to cut her hair short because of her age!" No dear. You embellished my comment. I made a statement. No added punctuation needed. Just an everyday, garden variety period at the end of my sentence. I think this is the point of your rant. The responses you got regarding your comment about Maxima acting her age upset you. I'm sorry you were verbally pummeled, but the words were yours. You might have expected some pushback.

      We can agree that Maxima's hair is not in great condition. We can speculate as to the reason why. I prefer to reserve my comments for days when her looks good, or better than usual, because it is like Groundhog Day when I read the comments about Maxima. I can't see the point in beating the same dead horse.

      First - I'm not an "upset".
      Secondly, English is not my native language, it is the third language I have learned in addition to my native language. Maybe sometimes I use the wrong term and this can lead to misunderstandings. And I admit, I didn't quite understand your last paragraph.
      Thirdly: I do not follow this site for the sake of royals, but for fashion. The royal persons are basically indifferent to me. My friend is a very experienced hairdresser with prizes from international competitions. She evaluated Maxim's hair unequivocally: it is destroyed, damaged by constant coloring, it is thinning with age and no vitamins will help. A new hairstyle, a slight shortening would be a better way. One of our proverbs says: Hair = crown of beauty. Sometimes a mess of hair spoils the impression of fashion. But I understand that someone doesn't see it that way.

    6. @Anon 12:27 My apologies regarding the Groundhog Day reference. It is an American colloquialism, originating from a movie of the same name. It means something is the same every time, never changing (like the comments about Maxima's hair).
      "Beating, or flogging, a dead horse", is an idiom that means continuing to discuss or focus on a subject that is pointless because the issue has been settled or you know is not going to happen. Further argument is useless. It originates from a time when it was acceptable to beat horses to make them run faster. Beating a dead horse would be pointless as they wouldn't be able to run at all.
      You do come across as being upset and defensive. Of course a language barrier could explain some of it, but I think your understanding and use of English is very good. In any case, I have my opinion, you have yours. Thanks for the debate. I just ask that in the future, you quote people accurately. Regards.

  9. Good outfit for her, on the simpler side, nothing on the more outlandish side which she prefers. The color is beautiful. Her hair isn't the worst it's been.
