This dress was completely ruined by the positioning of the appliques. Actually, it would have looked much better without any appliques at all. The location of each applique is just. I do like the color and cut of the dress, though.

Edouard Vermeulen = Natan issued a press statement today, declaring that the complete New York wardrobe of Princess Maxima was designed by him.
This strikes me as a most unusual and highly indiscreet move, made for the sole purpose of self-promotion.
If Maxima wanted this to be common knowledge, the fact could be featured in the statements from the Royal House about this tour. As it doesn't, I find Vermeulen's need to publicize the fact a bit vulgar.

Mr. Vermeulen took great pride in poorly tailored outfits he offered Crown Princess Maxima ..? He'd better read some comments about one of his creations in HuffingtonPost. I find his actions (i.e., the statement about the wardrobe designed for Crown Princess Maxima) totally ill-bred. He should consider himself fortunate to have members of the European reigining houses among his clients. Mr. Vermeulen should never use his royal clients to promote his products. We do not see Armani or Valentino issuing any statements of such nature.

Unfortunately, Vermeulen has done so frequently before in interviews, but never in such a blatant (and offensive, IMO) way as he did now.
I have never understood what makes his designs so popular with different Royals, and I actually hope that this PR move and lack of discretion might lead to a disrupture between him and his clients.
There are just so many designers to choose from who do a better job, in terms of style and elegance as well as in terms of originality and craftsmanship.

The first outfit is dowdy and weird - too flimsy for a coat, too coat-like for a dress, again too short, and I don't like her wearing a ponytail. Don't care for the orange accessories either, the earrings are ugly.
The second outfit is simply ridiculous with fake antique uniform braiding, the dull color and the Dutch Flag bands.
It's a good thing that Maxima made up for these strange choices at night.

Love the first outfit, very nice on Maxima. Her hair in a ponytail suits her.
I adore the second outfit, especially the jacket. I prefered the hair the first time she wore it though.

I like the first outfit, although, I don't care for the earrings. I don't like the second outfit, though. The stripe detail at the waist and sleeves looks kind of strange, IMO, although, I do think that she looks better in it during this wearing.

I like the first outfit. The red heels and bag make a striking contrast to her dark suit.

I like the first outfit, accessories make a contrast but I would like to see different shoes. I like simple hairdo.
The second outfit is nothing special.

Yet another 'Dutch Flag' outfit... IMHO one was more than enough.
It's not exactly a very subtle way to promote one's country abroad.

The black is nice the shoes are horrible with it. the jacket is a strange colour to be wearing white pants with..... I am not sure what is going on there. I love the Prada sunnies too cool.

I´m not sure about this outfit. Overall, it looks nice, but the jacket doesn´t work, IMO, and the shoes are awful.
I love the sunglasses and the hairdo, quite pretty!

Well, it may not be subtle, but I like it. certainly more than the other 'flag outfit'. I love the simple but strong neckline and the pants are nice.

Going back a bit, other favourites of mine from this vist so far have been the dress she wore to meet the Obamas, I loved the colour and the way it fitted her so well.

The trench coat Maxima wore was one of her more flattering ones, IMO, and I'm glad she added colour with her accessories.

Shades are by Tom Ford.
The outfit is nice. This isnt like the other outfit throwing the Dutch flag in your face.
I like the jacket with the white pants, it looks really nice.
Nice hair IMO

I like this outfit, nice combination dark jacket with white (or beige) pants. A little bit of color is a nice addiction.

Is this a coat? Or a cape? Or a dress and a cape? There is a hole under the armpit?

The earrings are plain ugly.

I dont know but to the front view its suppose to be a shirt dress/coat. I guess anything you want it to be.
Me thinks, with a hole underneth, the sleeves might be detachable, I dont know.
The earings arent pretty at all. What does coral have to do with all
