Red and purple don't really go together and normally this gown would be a big no for me. Except Maxima manages to pull it off.
On anyone else, it would have looked like a circus outfit; on her, it looks vibrant.

No one else can carry this look off, even though I don't care for the screaming red protrusion at the waist and the shiny purple fabric. But she certainly wears it with panache. That is an interesting retro 'do and I'd love to see a closeup of the tiara. Those bracelets look divine.

I agree with all the others here who say that only Maxima could carry this dramatic gown. That being said, the line between what works and what does not is a fine one and we've seen her step over it a few times! I just love how confident she is, and how she experiments with what she wears. It puts all of my black turtleneck sweaters to shame.

As everyone has said, only Maxima could carry this look... and she nailed it! It's over the top.. but then, so is Max! Now if only she could figure out her day wear....

I find this interesting. The dress screams "LOOK AT ME" - yet she is Princess Max and they all will be looking at her anyway. I'd understand if this were flattering to her figure - but that bunch of "stuff" at her waist just makes it look bigger. Maybe from another angle it was excellent?
I celebrate women that want to take it over the top - but I just hope they go over the top for a reason beyond being over the top. I guess that's my issue with Max - she could find really flattering, really outre' things to wear. But sometimes she leaves out the flattering.

Love the hair, makeup and jewels. The dress is a gorgeous color and perfect for Maxima but I think it would have looked better without the red flower.

Without the big red thing on the side I think this would have been a hit. The hair, jewels and the shape of dress is perfect.

NO!..It's not enough yet..grin!..Never one to parrot I totally love the dress as well as the vibrant colours,as said before,to most it would look a carnaval outfit or an abused duvet,but to her,she dazzles each and all!

The " red waist "does look so different in real,like I said,a picture is just that,one hasn't got a clue on the real thing unless you've seen it yourself...

Baroness of Books..It is not really a tiara.It is Queen Wilhelmina's haircomb,a gift from her husband Prince Hendrik in the 1910's.

I dont mind the dress and I agree that only Maxima can pull it off but that barbie-like hairpiece is too much for me.

25-01-2013 Contra Princess Maxima on the last day of the 2 day statevisit to Singapore.

I completely agree with you. And i also think that being that "big" with her hair and pompeus dress it is not a good gesture to her hosts, who are mainly small people in Singapore, she overrules them completely!

She's visiting Brunei, right? The amount of gold and ornamentation used by their royal family belies your argument that they are "small people," although I know that you were referring to stature.

Maxima wasn't out of place, no matter how big her hair was.

I really love this look, and Maxima really let the outfit speak for itself, not exactly over-gilding the lily.

Its disappointing to see the final touches like hair and make up not really taken care of after a few days of doing so well for the dinners.
I like the color combination and the style but would've preferred the skirt to be floor length and not ankle length.
