I only like the bag and the shoes.

Does Natan blackmail the benelux ladies? Because his designs are usually awful with some rare exceptions

Oh no... This dress looks so odd... Anyway, at least I like the hairdo and the clutch.

Not the best dress I´ve seen on her, but not the worst either...Anyway, too casual for an evening event, IMO.

Nothing special, this dress doing nothing to CP's figure. The print is boring and the detail on the front looks strange IMO. I like the hairstyle and clutch, hate the sandals.

I could not agree more. Most of his pieces look pretty cheap (the material etc.) and somehow badly cut.

I liked Mathilde's hairdo alot; the dress was pretty unflattering.

I like the dress, but not on Mathilde. It just doens't work with her figure. I like Natan, but I think it's time that Mathilde gets to know more fresh Belgian designers.

It is not the worst creation by Natan. Overall Crown Princess Mathilde looked all right. The black-and-white combination became her very much.

For years, I've been wondering about the same thing...
If Natan either blackmails or bribes all of his royal BeNeLux clients, we would at least have some explanation for their weird penchant for this bad designer.

I agree. Mathilde looked great in this dress. She's worn much worse by Natan.

Mmm, no... Again, this is quite disappointing. Nothing seems to match and even separately these pieces don't impress me at all.

The first two pictures show the same thing.
They dress looks a bit mismatched from what i can see.

I have to say that the dress looked awkward to me. Embellishments on sleeves were further aggravated by water-colour pattern. The hairstyle and huge ear-rings did nothing to complement her. I wish Crown Princess Mathilde wore something simple and well-tailored.

I like the dress, but the shoes don't go well with the dress imo.

I dont mind the print which was nice and colorful but the tailoring was as bad as it can get IMO, it had no style nor a nice cut to it.
The hair is styles the same all the time, couldnt get any more boring.

I know prints are in style now, but that doesn't mean everyone should wear it. However I do think she looked okay with the printed dress, but the shoes was a turn off. Why orange?!

Awkward to say the least. I don't like it at all. The sandals are horrible too. OMG!
