I haven't see that outfit, so I can express my opinion about it. I usually like Princess Mary's choice of outfits though.
This type of 'unorthodox' dresses is somewhat typical of Queen Beatrix, Princess Laurentien, Princess Mabel, and it shows their unique style and personality, that's why I don't mind those otherwise not-too-much-my-taste outfits.

A couple of more pictures of the Queen in Slovakia.

Although the way she dresses is not my style. I do like it because she distinguishes herself! And I think that makes her the way she is.

The dutch newspapers have a quote of the president od Slovakia, who said: "What's the diffrence between protocol and terrorists? You can negotiate with terrorists."
Because he wanted to take Beatrix with him to a place in the High Tatra, where you have a wonderful view about Slovakia, Czechia and Poland.
Between I love the way she's dressed today.

Thank you for quoting the article, anirac. Looks like the President had to learn quite a lot for the Queen's visit.

In addition to wonderful pictures posted by Lucien, here are a couple more from getty.
Queen Beatrix in the Art Museum
Queen Beatrix poses by a sculpture (you can see only its hand, but it suits with the Queen's hat very much)

And when I first saw this picture (especially the smaller version), I thought the sculpture is part of the Queen's hat.

Well, maybe I am in the minority, but I did like the red dress Beatrix wore to the banquet (and the tiara). On the other hand, the black and green-patterned outfit for today is not one of my favourites. But I always think it must be very difficult for Queens and their designers to come up with something different all the time. Sometimes it works - and sometime it doesn't!

Empress, you really have brought a smile to face. While I was reading your posts I couldn't help but smile about you comparing the hats to food containers. I guess I never really thought about it before but I see what you mean.

I love how energetic Q. Beatrix is. She is definitely one of my faves.

Queen Beatrix, accompanied by Kosice's mayor Frantisek Knapik greets locals during a walk in Kosice, east Slovakia, on 23 May 2007. The Queen of the Netherlands ends her three-day official visit to Slovakia om 23 May.

Slovak people must be impressed by the Queen's hats, though this one beats all the previous ones, imo.

I love the blue evenning dress, it is by far one of the nicest she has worn in a pretty long time. The outfit is exactly what I would wish for QB, a much more clean cut taylored wardrobe and not so many different colours (all bright and often highlighted by contrasting black). She is not the slimmest person ( ) but her figure is not as bad as frocks with an extra layer of heavy fabric around her hips suggest. (the poster who already mentioned the blue frock she wore in Sweden was right to highlight this particular fashion disaster, at least the red dress didn't look like she forgot again to take off the car blanket)
Hats are pretty easy for her Majesty, I assume she has one or two and spraypaints them to match the outfit, stick a flower on it occasionally (or a noodle and call it maccaroni... Yankee doodle)
As well as jewels: when her maestro de coiffure invented her helmet he obviously forget to take into account, that occasionally she would have to wear tiaras

Btw, someone mentioned that the brooch she wore at the first day was a present from her daughter-in-law.
vavoom....

Princess Maxima :). But I frgot to say that it ws actually still unclear wether it is a gift of Maxima herself or a gift from the Zorreguietta family.

I agree with fee, this is one of her better gala outfits that HM has worn recently.

From the Zorreguieta family is what I heard after I catched the first glimpse of the piece during the recent state visit to Turkey.

To Fee:
Alexandre de Paris was the maestro who "designed" HM hairdo,decades ago,indeed taken into account that she will wear a tiara on occasion.HM just seems to "hide" them,or at least wears them more to the back.That might have to do with the fact she suffers from
migraine a lot,thus wearing a heavy piece up front doesn't feel all that comfortable and provokes an attack.

One can never tell tho when she has migraine,as son Friso pointed out;"The worse the migraine,the bigger the smile",as she continues to work/visit not to disappoint anyone by not appearing.The only time during her Reign she really had to skip in her agenda was when she suddenly suffered seriously from meningitis two decades ago or so.
