I have to agree that this dress does absolutely nothing for her. Nor anyone else who might wear it I suspect. And the shoes are all wrong for this time of the year in the Netherlands.

The idea of the dress is lovely but I have to agree it does not suit Maxima at all the bust line is appaling and the shoes and the black ribbons on the dress are too horrible.They kill the dress.I do like her hair though.

I have to agree with you, not the right dress for Maxima's shape. I think you need a really small waist for this style -- like Mary or Letizia -- and Maxima [ although I adore her] doesn't have that shape. Plus, what is with the top pushing in her bust area! Makes her waist look even wider than usual. I don't mind the shoes, its the dress.

Not a bad dress though not sure about the first cut in the top part of the dress, looks quite odd. I like the color and fabric of it with the black trimmings

I didn't like her look. The jacket didn't match the pants somehow.
And I don't like this shiny material at all. .. nearly looks like plastic.
It looked very unflattering in that light.

I have to say: I liked the jacket /blouse /whatever a thousand times better when she first wore it for the christening of Ariane.

Somehow it looks just better in daylight.. less shiny and plastic. I really liked it when she wore it back then.

I agree - the space-suit looking blouse and the retro sci-fi hairstyle make Maxima look like a non-sexy version of '68 Jane Fonda's Barbarella.

I agree, Her_Majesty! It looks better in the christening photos. Perhaps it is the lighting that makes it look too shiny in the recent photos. She looked fabulous in it the first time.

I hate to be a sheep but I like it better the first time too! I really do think that the daylight made a difference, and that the pants (whilst I can see why she chose them) were not a perfect match.
Maxima does wear her hair very well like that though! (Though I'd end on more of a positvie note )

Maxima pulled this off impressively well. Her hair was done so that there was nothing really new there, and Maxima loves brigh colours so no real challenges for her there either!
I think this was great.

WOW !!! I absolutely love Crown Princess Maxima's Indian-themed outfit. She did an amazing job pulling off a giant turquoise ear-rings and silver embroidered patchwork border. The hairstyle organically matched the whole look.

that is some amazing look on maxima! i'm very impressed: not many people would be able to pull it off so gracefully, elegantly and, most important, so diplomatically. great choice.

You are not crazy at all, Her_Majesty! This outfit is so beautiful. The color is perfect for Maxima, and the embroidery is so pretty. She looks wonderful!

That was a perfect dress for the Indian event - i think only Maxima could carry off that bright turquoise colour (it must be Latin American looks)
