That might be ... She does a good job pulling off the orange colour. Crown Princess Maxima should have worn a strong colour, not black.

I'm liking that dress and I like it in black and white....the scroll pattern was a nice nod to some of the themes of the Opening Ceremonies. The only thing I would have done differently, is pair it with a nice shawl (maybe in a deep red or aqua). I can't find any pictures of the shoes she wore and I'm hoping she picked something other than black.

I've translated some info about Benito Fernandez: Reina Maxima - Moda: Benito Fernández and Gabriela Fiori http://www.reinamaxima.com/moda-fiori.html

Is there any thread about Máxima's designers?

Sorry but I am very disappointed with Maxima's outfit. Is she going to a garden party? The hat is more or less a casual summer hat and the dress, well, it looks as ill fitted as a bathrobe on this occasion. For me it's much too casual looking and can't keep up with previous years. And then, sorry to say this, but Maxima knows exactly that she has to disembark the carrier, why chose such a neckline where people are able to see further down her chest (does she wear bra?) than they should be.

exactly my thoughts, as i posted in the prinsjesdag thread. there's something wrong with the outfit. the colour is nice, but the dress doesn't seem to fit her the best and it's a bit too informal in my opinion, for such pomp and circumstance. she had some lovely prinsjesdag outfits.

It looks like a dress that my grandmother would wear if she had some chique event. I really do not like this dress on Maxima, it makes her look old.

I think she looked much better then last year (which wasn't hard, actually . last year's Prinsjesdag-outfit was horrible).
I love the colour on Máxima. Suits her alot.
I'm not a big fan of the cut of the dress.
The hat is nice.
Anyway, she has worn much better outfits for Prinsjesdag before.

I really like the dress and hat on P Maxima, it does kinda look like the last seen in 'Stepford Wives" from the grocery store. Very 70's, but it works for me!!!

A very pretty dress. The color suited Maxima very well & the cut, well she pulled it off well. This dress was not such as fussy as what she has worn in the past & I think many of us expected her to wear something abit more over the top as in past times, even though she didnt, this is a winner IMO. The hat adds alot to the outfit.

I'm in the minority here, since I loved the dress and the color on her. It's very different and very "girly" with the flowing sleeves and skirt. I think the hat is perfect with the dress. Of course, when I see that great smile, most of the time whatever she's wearing just fades away.

I like the color, but the style is awful. I am surprised to see her in such an ugly, old-fashioned style.

I really love the colour but not the dress it photographs poorly from a distance and she looks like she's wearing a nightie. Love the hat.

I'm afraid the outfit didn't work for me either. Maxima is beautiful whatever she's wearing, as long as she has that wonderful smile of hers, but I didin't like the hat, the outfit and the colour either.

Maxima's latest event: ANP Beeldbank Troonopvolgers!: Prinses Máxima in Haarlem!

As was pointed out in the CEvents thread, this looks to be the dress Maxima wore to F&L's wedding, May 2004.

I think she looks great!

Crown Princess Maxima was stunning in a rosy peach coloured sheer dress, which had a right amount of sparkle. The whole look nicely reflected both unique style and personality of Crown Princess Maxima. I am really impressed with her ability to pull off giant ear-rings.

Maxima's dress is wonderful as usual, yet why does she seem to neglect the state of her hair? It looks so unkempt?
