I think this dress looks so much better on Maxima than on the model. I loved this dress because it is so different than anything we have seen her wear before. She looked like an Arabian princess from a fairytale in this dress.

I totally agree.

The dress and coat belong to Benito Fernandez's Matrioshka collection. The chosen subject of the collection is inspired by russian dolls, and the point is to let free the imagination, mixing defined textures and colours that invite us to the seduction and elegance.

I think the dress looks nice but the jacket isn't really a succes.
To awnser PoE's question: she has never been seen wearing the dress again AFAIK.

I thought the same. The dress doesn't look well on the model (the boots she's wearing don't match with the dress , IMO). The dress and coat look splendid on Máxima. And I also like her shoes.

I always thought the same thing. I would love to see that dress by itself. The jacket seems to casual for such a beaded gown. Then again maybe that was the point?

I agree - when i first saw the pictures of Maxima waering the dress i wasnt too sure about it but i have changed my mind and it totally fitted in with the counrty they were visiting and was a great choice with the jewels and the hair

I like the green dress and red coat.
It looks very oriental.It was adequate for the country she visited.
But I really don't know if the shoes were golden or brown

The shoes are golden, she has worn them before with the golden pant-suit in February 2008 for the joined birthday celebrations for Queen Beatrix and Princess Margriet

Here's a photo of Princess Maxima at the state banquet for the visit of the Swedish king and queen on 21 April 2009:

She looks really pretty in white.

I love the hair, the dress... It all seems great. The dress is wonderfully fitted by the looks of it. The white colour and the cut of the dress combine to show that she has just been through winter, her skin is very fair and I'm glad she didnt fake-tan it, the dress wouldn't look as natural on her then.

I agree completely! It never looks right when someone fake-tans and then wears white or another light color. Maxima wore this dress beautifully.
