Does anyone has a closeup of the handbag? Looks like it was made in the same fabric and has a clear handle. I almost didn't see it. Not sure about the white shoes, but the dress is beautiful.

On the "Moda" page, Maxima looked great in Natan and Missioni, can't say the same about Ferragamo and Chanel. Especially, the Chanel skirt, it looked horrid even on the stick thin model.

Me too! I wanted to see the sheer dress underneath.

The outfit she wore at Felipe's wedding, the purple gown worn to the ball , the red one for her first Prince Day, and the floral gown worn at the King of Thailand's jubilee are still the most elegant she's ever looked. All were Valentino I believe.

I like the second dress. The color combination is very unique, and the overall shape is very nice. The first dress is okay. I don't like the two lines that show through the lace (they look like straps, but they're distracting). The color is also pretty, but I think it would look nicer without those straps showing through the top.

I always felt that Maxima was too young for the first dress, but again, from the time I first saw it I really liked the second dress.

I agree. The second dress is stunning on PMaxima. The first one looks like it would make a better cocktail dress. LOVE the brooch.

I hope that we'll get to see a full length picture of this dress!
I think that the dress would be more likely to look flattering then.
I really like how simple and elegent Maxima;s hair is.

not too fond of the hairdo though.

Exactly. A most unflattering dress with unfortunate proportions - the way it is cut literally into three parts offers a perfect example of the dreaded 'sausage effect'.
Pity, because she looks lovely from the neck up, finally wearing her hair again in one of her elegant chignons instead of open pool hair.

This is one of the worst dresses she has worn in a long time. It makes her look fat and frumpy. Don't like the shoes either.

I agree. The top part of the dress is so unflattering. The bottom part isn't as tight as the top part, but from the waist up, she looks horrible. Her hairstyle is nice, though.
