In comparison to the well-turned-out Queen, Max did not look good at all at the airport arrival. She should have changed into more formal attire and freshened her hair and makeup before disembarking. I'm really unimpressed at this sight of the future Queen.

I agree.
She had more than enough time to look presentable. She's clueless.

Outfit number 3 on day 1 - a very nice combination in light colours,

I think the blouse and the jacket are the best parts of it:

I think that this outfit is my favourite of the day. I love the style of the jacket.
Another photo of the hat

Love the outfits so far. Her white suit is awesome.

Maybe one of the ribbons would have been enough.

Agree 100% - I honestly thought: Who is that woman?

And then again, when Maxima gets it right, she gets it right! Love those two beige outfits:

Not liking this one, one bow or ruffle to many and only one bland colour. It needs some accessories to break the boredom.

You're welcome, nylonluva


Here is the second outfit of day 2,

now after having seen that, I prefer the first It's recycled, but together with the glasses too much for my
personal taste, and the worst thing is the fact that Queen Beatrix's choice for the event is so similar. One of
them should have worn a single-colored, more neutral dress - this way it grates a bit on one's eyes..

Horrid.
Maxima looks like a caricature of her own self - this is a perfect get-up for anyone who would like to parody her in a cruel way. No idea how she could look at herself in a mirror and NOT crack up with laughter, followed by a quick change of dress.
Of course the match with Queen Beatrix doesn't help - they walk around like two Rohrschach Tests nobody wants to be submitted to.
The most tasteless outfit of the new year, and hopefully it remains the worst for some time to come.

What happened to the less is more theory? In the case of Max's beribboned outfit, there's a fashion maxim that one should look in the mirror after dressing and remove at least one accessory. Obviously Max needs more mirrors.

What a uberhyped response.The arrival was,as I already explained,purely a technical arrival.
No welcoming head of state in sight nor was there any meeting between the two families planned on saturday night.So,so no,not an offence to anyone in sight that night.Slab in the face....really.....No,not at all,unless one is one of those uberhyped wish we were fashion models girls...But class doesn't need make-up just to please forum members..The very idea is hilarious...!!

There was press there. She was representing your country abroad. You did not see the Queen get off the plane with no makeup and her hair uncombed. She looked as lovely as she always does when she appears in public. The Prince had on a suit and a tie. So, this arrival must have been of some importance to the royals otherwise they could have stepped off the plane looking like they just rolled out of bed too.

It was still a non-official arrival to allow the Oranges to adjust to the climate.

I'm not liking this "cow" look.
The pattern and colors are coming off as tacky

My mistake. I guess the Queen and the Crown Prince have no idea how it should be done since they are royals by birth.
