The outfit is okay, but not for this event.

Lovely dress, but she is overdressed for this event.

I am in agreement. The dress is lovely but not suitable for the event.

I´ve always loved this dress, but I agree that this time it looks a bit overdressed. Her husband is wearing jeans

I love her shoes. Strappy heels are always so fun!

I think Maxima looks wonderful. She looks overdressed because it looks like everyone is underdressed. If you compare her to Tatiana she fits in. Its a cocktail party for a prewedding event....why is everyone so casual?

I don't think she was overdressed, this kind of dress is very much the fashion these days for summer

Maxima looks amazing! I really love her dress, and the shoes are great!

I don't like the shoes with this dress - too much for me, and conflicting colors.

Well the thing about red is there are variations of the color. IMO its a different color of red for the dress, shoes and bag...so it kind of clashes. But I love the dress and the shoes. Just maybe not together.

The colour looks fabulous on her. Very good choice for her but maybe not for this event if you look at the other guests.

Does anyone know the designer?

Perhaps because it's the wedding of the second son of a non-reigning monarch? Plus it must be really hot in Greece at the moment.

However, overall that dress is GREAT. I just think for Maxima it's a bit too short and compared with the other guests she looks overdressed indeed.

I guess it was the dresscode and the guests were told not to dress too formal. - I was reading somewhere the wedding is supposed to be a little bit like the wedding in the musical MammaMia!, where the guests were also pretty casually dressed.

I think Maxima looked wonderful, very bright, and it fits her personality. WA looks like such a likeable guy. Can't wait to see the wedding outfit Maxima brought! Hope she "dug" into that jewel case of the Dutch and pulls out some stunners!!

I think the dress is fine. If it had been a long dress I would be more worried of it looking too formal. WA needs to lose some weight.

I don't really like the dress.
