These buttons (?) remind me of the wedding dress (civil marriage) of prinses Anita, wife of prince Pieter Christiaan.

That's it! I was wondering what was wrong with the dress on her. I really like the dress, but the bottom part is too tight and she is hunching so the top part doesn't look good either.

Buttons? It's those ghastly 'embellishments' looking like half-sucked and spat-out candy which Natan / Edouard Vermeulen likes to sew on every other of his designs, for whatever reason... probably to distract from the poor tailoring.

The green dress is pretty, only I don't like the details on the neckline.

If she would loose weight, I would say yes, but the age would not be the problem to wear the dress.

IMHO she looks like a giant in this dress (which she isn't). The outfit is extremely unflattering and perhaps more suited for a holiday at a beach resort. And that she left the hairdresser at home doesn't help either.

I believe she wore the shoes before, when she visited the Keukenhof with Svetlana Metvedev.

This is fine on it own but the shawl and the shoes make 3 completely different types of greens. Awful.

I agree: horrible shoes.

She looks X legged in the full view picture.
I think she has difficult legs to find a good dress length that doesn't make her legs look so heavy (don't know if this is a good expression in english).

That´s an interesting dress, but its back is awful, IMO.
I don´t mind the top part embellishment, but I agree that the bodice does look wrong on her.

From the front it's okay, from the back it's just aweful. The color is nice on Maxima.
and I completely agree, the shoes are just TERRIBLE. The shoes from 2009 are much better.

I really like the colour on her am not sure how it would better if she were thinner and younger I thing that the style suits most ages IMO ... BUT the shose are too chunky and ruin any look of slenderness... it needs a sleek glamour shoe to update it IMO

I like this dress. It looked better at the wedding, though.

I don't think this look flatters her at all and the shoes make it worse IMO I do however love the colour on her.

Maxima really can do colour - liked the green colour and love this gold. But not the shoes. My first thought when I saw the turquoise with the green dress was that she had forgot to pack her black evening shoes. This combo reinforces that thought.

She looks like she can rock the dancefloor!
