Maxima attended the opening of the flowergarden De Keukenhof in Lisse today.

Full length
Close-up

I like the coat itself... but the whole look is a little strange to me, because the coat is quite wintery, while the shoes are summery peep-toes (or even sandals). The shoes are really ugly (I hate the clunky heels).

Love the coat, and the hair.
But the shoes look awful and tacky.

Coat and hair are good but the shoes and earrings are tacky... she should have worn black shoes instead.

I agree the coat is to die for but the shoes are horrible and I also totally agree that heels on them are not flattering and whilst I see what the lok is supposed to be it has not come off because of the shoes... I like the earrings though.

Um... No, I wouldn't die for this coat. Though the quality of its material is really good, it isn't worth dying... Ok, like all of you said, horrible shoes and earrings.

I was surprised not to hear anything about Maxima's hair. I think it was messier than usual.

I like this coat. This type of print is normally one I don't like but it looks great on Maxima. Really don't like the shoes though - maybe need a different colour?

Coat is good, I always liked this coat. I happen to love the shoes, but not for 3 months, with a summer dress or suit, not on a cold day!

Awful sandals indeed (in any season), ugly 'matching' (color-wise) earrings, and a perfectly terrible hair do(n't):
Obviously a desperate big bird gave up on nest-building and dropped the ruin on Maxima's head.
The bold coat is a fashion risk to begin with, and IMHO would look elegant only when combined with the exact opposite of what Maxima chose: Understated accessories, simple hairdo, black or neutral shoes.

Agree with everyone else that the shoes would look better with spring colours. I understand she was trying to bring out the light blue in the coat with the shoes and earrings but it's just not working. I do like the colour of the shoes though.

I think the coat is very Mary-ish, and I agree is rather pretty and that neutral shoes would have been wonderful, However I dont think it is to die for, is plain pretty the fur kinda ruins it.

The hair is an utter mess, Princess Maxima insists in dieng her hair blonde when it isn't so she ends up with those terrible roots and looking cheap. Not to mention is constantly out of place

I rather like the coat myself. But when you look at the closeup of the shoes they look (remind you that I said look) cheap. I love the color of them since they coordinate with the coat but not the shoe itself.

I don't like the coat - it looks like flower power-style in an awful way to me. But the coat could have looked better, at least original, if not these shoes...
All elements together - coat, shoes, earrings - is just too much, JMO.

One thing that can't be denied; she wears the clothes. The clothes don't wear her. Which a lot of the princesses fail at. The clothes wear them.

I like it, but without those boots. In my opinion classic high heels would have looked better.
