I expected Maxima to be wearing a more lavish tiara last night but nevertheless she looked lovely. The gown is pretty and I do like the style but I think she looked washed out in it and almost blended in with the walls at the dinner table.

I generally don't care for the pale neutral tones but this works well with her hair and eyes. LOVE the updo with the tiara-she looks really nice!

This is very pretty, I prefer it to yesterdays gown. Maxima wears shiny fabrics well.
The tiara is very nice and so is the hairdo.

I don't know why I don't like it. Maybe I don't like the tiara, or else it's the colors.
The dress and jacket are impeccable, wonderful jewels and love the brooch to close the jacket.

I think it is a button but it might be brooch,

like the whole look, colour, materials, design, hair, including her nail colour, very pretty.

Really perfect princessness IMO. Love the jewels, dont think Ive seen Maxima wear this tiara with the pearl buttons just the stars. I always loved this dress, its quite nice with jacket closed with brooch. Oh how I love Maxima on state visits!!!!

I don't know if I like the satin jacket too much. I'd love to see the gown without it; beautiful fabric.

Its a lovely gown matched well with the jacket but the colour of the gown is boring for such an event. I wished for a more coloured evening wear especially since the first evening wear was quite plain in colour.

couldnt agree more - these events bring out maxima at her best, a princess look from head to toe!

January 24, 2013 - Maxima in a purple one shoulder evening dress with a huge red/pink design on the waist which ruined the dress.

The bow is too big but I think the jewels are gorgeous as usual.

The big bow and too big hairdo makes this look very unfortunate for me. Im not a big fan of the dress either, too brigh for my taste.

IMO, the dress and hair-do are very very Maxima - quite loud, but I am guessing she manages to carry them of in person.

I guess it is all right, I am glad her hair is sleek otherwise it would be a bit too copacabana.

Apart from the big red balloon-looking thing around her waist I think she looks stunning! I especially like the retro-ish hairstyle with the tiara-makes me think of some pictures I've seen from back in the 60's. I agree that only Maxima could pull this off.
