I think she's always elegant and chic. No matter what she's wearing, she has a lot of elegance.

Did you see that red dress from the state banquet with the red sack over it?

The dress is slightly unusual but I like it. And I love the shoes.

I wonder who on earth ever brought HM on the idea of wearing dresses with some extra draperies around them. She seems to be quite fond of them but they aren't very flattering, to say the least.
The red dress is at least 13 years old btw, it was worn at the state visit to Austria and to the pre-wedding ball of Infanta Elena and Don Jaime.

A surprise to see this tiara on HM, but I am glad she is wearing a tiara to begin with. It is the first time that she wears this version of the emerald tiara, luckily with the smaller drop pearls.

I don't know, I liked the dress. Had any other Royal Lady (with the exception ofperhaps Princess Laurentien) wore anything like it, I don't think I would like it but Queen Beatrix can get away with anything - I thought she looked lovely.


Dutch Queen Beatrix is seen during her walking in Bratislava downtown, Slovakia, on 22 May 2007.
The Queen of the Netherlands is in Slovakia on a three-day official visit.

Nice hat. Though it looks like she wears two of them at the same time - a black one perched on the top of the yellow one.

Sigh... I am just not impressed with her clothing choices this trip. I erally did not like that dress, and I do not care for that hat from today. Oh well. She looks happy so that is what counts.

I dont know what to make out of todays walk through the city, looked like she was already for spring, the skirt & top very colorful which was nice but the hat... the hat looked like she was wearing two hats, one on top of the other. Well, im suprised someone at that age wore something that bright, its worth experiminting sometimes but i guess its a matter of choice. good to see her enjoying her time.

The draperies,HM has a string of simular dresses,started wearing them in the early nineties for reasons unclear to me.What i like in this silk dress is the indian (read India) print.Suppose she purchased the cloth during her first State Visit to India around that time with Prince Claus.The tiara in this fashion is not a favorite at this side of the line.

But I look forward to the State Visit to India this autumn,with Alexander and Máxima,so we no doubt have more to revell,but it's slightly O/T now..

Criticise is easy to do.
I also think that the red dress is not one of her best.
But for myself I like the black-yellow dress and also the hat, because with the flap, she doesn't need sunglasses. The only thing I'm wondering is, that she wears black at all, because it has nearly 30 degree at Bratislava.

Well, black and other dark colors deflect het, where as palecolors absorb them and make a person warmer. And in any case, she needs to stand out in a crowd, so her clothes should help her do that.

well anirac, I am terribly fond of my Queen even dispite (or maybe also because of) her peculiar wardrobe.

To Lucien: I thought she got rid of the dresses with draperies, but sadly they returned, already in Stockholm. Compared to that one this red version isn't to shocking.

This version of the tiara isn't one of my favourites either, but Queen Beatrix and jewelry has always been an uneasy relationship, so I have accepted that she will never really sparkle like her mother. At least her tiara doesn't disappear completely in her hairdo this time.

That dress she wore at the state banquet is quite an old one isn't it? I think she wore it to Jordan or France for a banquet in the late 80s early 90s. I could be wrong of course. Without the red sack it would be quite a nice frock. Love the tiara and as ever, Her Majesty lights the room with her smile.
