I've always liked the "quirky" coat on Maxima, it fits her personality.

The coat fits wonderfully, but the color/flowers remind me of rather ugly curtains.

Hummmm, Dont like chunky sweater or thick grey tights. Skirt ok, but not with grey, imo. Do like the blouse and shoes.

Oh Dear another awful combination is it possible ......she just keeps coming up with so many outfits that make her look bigger and less attractive than she actually is am very disappointed.

The coat is nice, looks very Chanel. The skirt is a lovely color but it doesn't look good with the top. The tights must go.

Yes I like the shoes but I think maybe black stockings and I don't like the red skirt and grey blouse together I feel like something is a little off about her outfit

I gave up commenting on the princess' wardrobe for a while as nine times out of ten she is terribly dressed, but well... she has started the year exceptionally bad. Apart from some awful outfits the worst thing is IMHO the enormous amount of bronzer/make-up (and the few strings of hair- but what else is new?). I also dislike the minnie mouse sunglasses with a passion , esp. when they are combined with a hat(tish object). It simply looks rediculous. And let's not forget the extremely unflattering Natan boots! I wish she would hire a professional to take care of these things. It is starting to become embarrassing IMHO.

Of course over here she is still hailed as a 'fashion icon' by some magazines. The press usually does not show unflattering pictures (and there are tons of them), or cuts off a picture exactly where the outfits goes wrong. All the critics on royalty programmes on television are usually overly polite too, as they do not want to upset the target audience.

This week though, I saw that magazine 'Privé' for the first time critisized the princess' fashion (during the UAE/Oman visit) under the headline 'even Máxima can't always look perfect'... a headline which can compete for the understatement-of-the-year award.

Now you can wonder if it is important how she is dressed or not, as in the end it is about hat she does/says etc. But IMHO most of the time (since the birth of Ariane) she looks like a charicature of her old self, which makes it hard to take her seriously. And you canexpect her to be appropriately dressed while representing the country.

I normally like red, but this color screams against the overall gray of her blouse, gray shoes and dark gray hosiery. She needed a more subtle color for the skirt and lighter hose.

I like the coat; especially the cut. The shade of the skirt is too bright and doesn't go with the rest of the outfit.

I don't care for the floral coat. The flowers are too big.
I do like the black & white checkered coat she wore earlier though.

I don't mind the grey sweater/coat but those thick grey tights have gotta go!

I adore this coat. It is very different and not everyone could wear something like it. Maxima has just the right type of personality to pull it off without it looking goofy or too showy.

Máxima during a private visit at the Jumping Amsterdam today, January 21, wearing the lovely red
cape again, but mixing it with pants and blouse in different shades of red and pink. I don't like that
colour mixture, the only thing I like is the recycled cape:

I only like the cape, too. The color mix is odd; she'd have been better wearing neutral slacks like a gray.
