Very nice look on her.

Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

Another event, a different outfit: Máxima also today at an exhibition opening as part of a state visit from Turkey.
Looks nice:

It's good especially upper part with hat, but I'm not fan of the skirt. I think that type of skirt is not suitable to Maxima's figure

She looks best in straight skirts. The length and full skirt are not flattering for Maxima.

I love the second look better; it's very elegant if a bit understated for a state visit.
As for the first outfit, I like the colours and the top, but the overly busy skirt is not my cup of tea.

As usual, thanks a lot for the pictures, iceflower!

I hate the bulky skirts on her, unfortunately Maxima seems to love them but its not a look for her. I agree about straight skirts looking best on her.

Not the best look for her but then... not the worst. The skirt is okay but a bit bslloon like and though the look is 50's I think a jacket would have completed the outfit in a sharper way IMO

This is an outfit for a grandmother. Don't like it at all.

The second outfit looks rather horrible, that said I really like the first one, it is very elegant indeed.

I am not liking the look at all. Everything seems to be off...The heavy full skirt and the skimpy little hat thingy just don't go together well.

Respect people who find time for you in their busy schedule. But love people who never look at their schedule when you need them.

I really don't think cardigans flatter any grown woman, Maxima included.

The gray voluminous skirt with box pleats is a really beautiful skirt. I do think she has the height to pull it off, ditto the length of the skirt. Very elegant. I love the velvet hat, shiney blouse and tweedy skirt, great mix of textures.

Without the cardigan, and standing up a bit straighter, and in "real life" without the pounds the camera adds, I think she would look very well in it.
The other skirt and top are just too ugly colors for me.

A very retro, 1950s look that I really don't like on her. Max needs to stay away from the wide skirts, but I like her in the peplum style with straight skirt - another retro look that looks great on her.

I'm not a fan of the second look. The skirt is making Maxima look rather bulky. The first look is very elegant. The only thing I dislike is the busy-ness of the skirt. The color combination is very nice though.

Máxima visiting the Weekend Academy, a project of the Orange Foundation, in Amsterdam today, wearing a
coat and dress in the same colour and a little black hat. I like her with that hat, but the coat looks too wide.

I don´t like the 2nd skirt isn´t for her, but the outfit is better without the cardigan. Today´s outfit is not special.

The hat is awful, especially with that coat.
