I think her outfit is perfectly appropriate. It was an informal wedding of WA's not the wedding of Mary to CP Fredericks.

Well ... I have to agree about the unflattering style of the dress. sgl is quite right about the print and colour palette. At the same time, it is autumn now and something more simple sleek monochrome would have suited Crown Princess Maxima better. Furthermore, I for one think that one-shoulder gowns, especially ones with ruffles, do not flatter Crown Princess Maxima much making her look bigger than she is.

I have to agree with Al_bina on this one.

IMO its not that the dress is not appropriate for an evening wedding in NY its that the dress does nothing for her. An off the shoulder dress would like better if it was fitted. Maxima has a nice figure and this doesn't show it to its benefit.

Its like the strappy shoes that she wears that don't look nice on her ankles because they are rather round. Sounds silly but thats what it looks like to me.

I like that Maxima added her normal touch with her earrings :)

If it was me, I'd 'redesign' the dress to retain the layering over the shoulder, but just have the rest plain - nice, slightly figure hugging (certainly not too much though)

I think the 'look' on the whole would have been better with a sleek updo. Flownsy dress and hair is not elegant IMO. The colors of the dress were nice though. My pet peeve is back. I promise not to go on and on always...but Why the daytime sports watch in the evening???? This drives me nuts. If an event is nice enough that your wearing a dress and strappy gold sandals, put your watch in your purse!!!!!!!

IMO the colours of this dress do not really suit Maxima, they are too pale for her complexion and toooo much ruffles....

I don't often respond to comments - but this lady is stunning and she looks so again in this outfit. I cannot understand the negative comments at all

Its just a fashion thread. We are commenting about our opinions on her fashion. I don't think any of us are not in agreement that Maxima is stunning!! We love her.

Indeed we do love her . . . . . . . just about as much as we hate some of her fantastic fashion faux pas. All of which, needless to say, is very much our own subjective opinions.

Looks like I'm in the minority bc I love this outfit of Maxima's! I think she looks great and the wedding was during the last nights of summer so I think she's made a great choice with the dress.

I really like Princess Maxima's perfect dress!
But I think it's not for the wedding event, here needs something more conservative.

The dress isnt too bad if worn with a nice big belt and worn to a daytime wedding.

A bad look, aging her and making her appear heavy.
The dress has a very awkward length, the fabric is strangely draped, black stockings are indeed all wrong here, and the tacky Halloween 'jewelry' is simply horrid.
An overall Black Widow Spider style.
