The hat in itself is delightful, but it belongs IMO to an Autumn coat.

I agree - hat looks great on Maxima but doesn't go with the dress. I like the dress too - conservative but looks very good on her.

The dress really is beautiful, but I'm with the majority here, the hat just doesn't work here. It is a wonderful piece, but not with this dress.

I also agree. Hat and dress don't match.
But I love this hat!

Maxima looks pretty. The dress is really lovely: I like both style and colour. The only thing of the outfit that don't convince me is the hat: it's nice but I don't see it very well matched with the dress.

Love the outfit, but not liking the hat: far too big, it covers her face. And it does not go with her outfit!

I love the dress, interesting color and fabric, but whole look is not the best. The hat, itself pretty seems to be too informal for the event. I'm not impressed be the jewelery choices too, we know that CP loves to play with the jewelery so today i was expected more. Overall not bad, but I was expected more.

I quite like Maxima's dress, soft green and a nice cut to it with nothing over the top. Th sonly thing which is weird is that hat, even though a great piece it looks odd with that dress. I would've loved a nice headpiece instead.

I suppose next to Queen Bee anyone could look like a fashion icon. I quite like the dress, the fabric is exceptional, but not the hat. That was completely out of place.

I like Missoni in general and this outfit looks very nice, especially on a tall woman like Maxima.

Stick with the Missoni! You really have to be tall and slim to pull that off.

The Parliament outfit was really terrible!! The dress was every nice but really too slinky for daytime, and the hat would be nice on a horseback ride in the pampass....

I like the long cardigan on Maxima, it does suit her especially since she has the height to pull it off without looking short. The print is great as well as the colors. I would love to see it matched with a belt or a tie to make it different from other times worn and to be worn with a plain top underneath instead of the matching camisole all the time.

The hat is ridiculous and though I like the dress it is totally overshadowed by this crazy choice. IMO

Horrible combo. When I first saw it I disliked everything, but the dress has grown on me. It's actually a delicate dress, but she ruined it with the hat and also when she put the sash underneath. And I don't like the earrings for such an event, they rather look like something that would look good at an evening event.

Pity, as Maxima normally can look so fantastic and overwhelming at those big events.
