Like the green dress, not the best. The open back with the thin, dead, overly bleached pool hair, the ankle straps etc... it isn't flattering at all. No idea why the princess prefers to wear plastic jewels either.

Disappointing that she wears accessories over real diamonds when she has access to some of the nicest jewels.

These shoes style with the bulky heel doesn't suit Maxima. I don't care for the dress at all, I just wish she would style her hair. Throughout the trip its has been the same style.

I think Princess Maxima looks nice with black dress & suits her i always see the black color suits maxima well , BUT the shoes very wrong choice & give her bulky look ,, I haven't more comments about the look .

All the shoes are wrong. Those thick heels, or just too high heels don't suit her. She looks like a giant and uncomfortable in them. They have ruined the green dress, yellow dress and black dress, imo
Also agree that she needs to find a skirt length to flatter her legs.
The green dress is just too tight and busy for her and a very unattractive rear view, as was the black dress rear view.
Love the yellow dress would have been perfect with better shoes.

I like the dress, but the colour is too bland.

I like the flowing, silky, draping style of the gown and Max looks absolutely wonderful. I always like to see something more colorful, though. And the Diamond Bandeau Tiara and her other jewels are just magnificent.

I think this is the best I have seen her look in a long time. Absolutely stunning! She stands out in that magnificent setting with the color and sheen of the dress, her hair, and her fabulous jewels. Regal and elegant.

The designer is Jan Taminiau. Princess Máxima wore the same dress during Prinsjesdag 2011.

She looks lovely, though I do not think the modern earrings and the tiara go well together.

Do absolutely adore the whole thing.Love the voluminous flowing fabric, the sheen of the fabric and draping.
Does it have a tinge of green to it? eau de nil? or is that my imagination and is it just silvery?
