Not quite sure what to say about this look. Her hair has been very beautifully done and Princess Maxima does look lovely. However, I am not sure what to make of the strange jacket which does not compliment the gown is not at all. The necklace also looks completely out of place and does not match the outfit.

And there we have the dichotomy in Maxima's fashion; she can either look drop-dead gorgeous and impeccably turned out, or do an about-face and appear in this fashion misfire. The empire-type waist and bodice just compress her natural endowments while the style of the gown just makes her look too broad. I don't care for the fussy feather-like bolero, either. But that Tahitian pearl necklace is just divine.

Don't like the jacket with this dress, it doesn't go well with it. Maybe I'd like it better with another outfit....

Maxima was really stunning! The one-shoulder dress looks good on her. Lovely hairdo and beautiful jewellery.

I love the dress but I can't help but wonder if it would look better on a younger girl.

^ I agree. Lovely dress, but it seems a bit young for her.

Oh I LOVE this Valentino dress on CP Maxima, though I think she wore it better in April 2011. Something is just off from a stylist standpoint on this trip, IMO.(especially from a hair, makeup, accessories items)

Ruffles and ribbons and dots add up to a very juvenile look in my book.

I think the dress has a very whimsical quality to it, and therefore, would look a lot better on someone who is younger. As for Maxima, she would have looked stunning if the dress were of a solid color, and without any ruffles.

The dress is precious, in April Maxima looked perfectly groomed with hair & headpiece, not so much this time with strawish hair and a black blanket wrapped around her shoulder.

This is one of my favorite dresses that she owns. So glad she's wearing it!
