The Queen of the night... by far! This red foam around her is hilarious!

The more close-up shots I see of the stole, the more I'm living it. At first I thought it was fur, which would be weird, but now I realize it's it's an intricate, gauzy, romantic piece.

I'm kinda diggin it.

Yes, she really was the "Queen of the night". And the flashlight of the photographers simply exploded at her arrival - exceeded all other attendees by far

I thought Maxima's gown looked like a walking backgammon board. Not at all to my taste but it doesn't have to be.

Maxima is such a presence wherever she goes and from what I can tell, is the life of every gathering. She's quirky and daring and as much as I loathe much of her wardrobe, she is a star beyond all recognition.

I can't imagine the current day royal 'set' without her, and neither would I want to!

I do not like the dress nor the wrap, it a bit holiday on ice, together with all thos diamonds, an terrible overdone combination, she does not look as fine as the other women.

The dress isnt bad at all, but I think there is too much boobs showing
The wrap is too much for me.With it she looks like a Christmas tree.
Her jewelery is to die for as is all the dutch royal family collection.
What I like the most is Maxima vibrant personality

The Luxembourg dress screams Maxima - it is daring and vibrant. BUT i really dislike it - dont think it was appropiate for the pre-wedding dinner. It is more 'celeb' style than royal style. The worst feature is the pouffy wrap. To me it screams look at me and abit attention grabbing for being so loud.

BUT the jewels are amazing - the diamond and rubies are lovely
This is the stuff of fairytales

Crown Princess Máxima in a strong red at a concert in Istanbul yesterday evening, November 10, 2012. I'm not a fan of the shoes, but red is once again a great colour for her:

The dress is lovely. I like the color on her and the fit is great. Im not fond of the shoes nor the red shawl, wrap she wore with it.

She looks great - good colour on her.
My only objection - with that kind of gorgeous emeralds she has an obligation to have an updo to allow all us jewellery-suckers a better view of her earrings and brooch
Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.

I think Maxima should not wear skirts or dresses which are shorter than the knees.
I had a dream: Let's connect our thoughts together, than we have a mission, let's connect our feelings together, than we have a mood, let's connect our dreams together, than we have a vision and let's connect our mission, our mood and our vision together than we have a perfect life.

I like the dress and the broche though it should be pinned a bit higher and less to the left, it is practically in her armpit. The shoes are ugly and could not flatter the best of legs.

Hear, hear!
I do love the fact the Dutch royals are never afraid to showcase some pretty impressive pieces on everyday engagements; gives jewelaholics their daily doze of bling.

Very nice dress and shawl. Good color and fit for her, love the interesting neckline and longer dress length is better for her. Don't mind the shoes.
Thrilled with the jewelry, though I agree the brooch is pinned in a very odd spot, too far over.Hair up would have helped but was impressed that her hair loooked better, it is getting very long.

She looks fantastic in that red outfit! The only thing I don't like about the look is the shoes.

I believe she wore this dress at a previous event in Amsterdam. I believe Bono was there too, if it is the same outfit it looked MUCH better the first time around. The hair (as usual) and the shoes ruin it.
