Tell me why Royal woman should not wear these kind of stockings`? I defenitely notice that in case of fashion many people are thinking here quite oldfashioned. What a pitty.

The stockings looked simply awful with the pants.

Maybe the stockings would work with a skirt... but they just didn't match the shape of the pants at all.
I also don't think that the pants looked especially flattering on Máxima.

Maxima looks nice, I like the shade of red but it's too much red, at least one of the accessories should have been black or so.

But all in all thank god she did not pull a Letizia and wear red stockings, so I am not complaining.

Thanks for the pictures.

I liked the dress alot sans the pinkish cardigan, chunky necklace, and the red handbag. Shoes were fine with the dress, but with all the other matchy matchy items, the overall look was OTT. Maxima needs to be told that sometimes less is more or as Coco Chanel said most aptly "when accesorizing, always take off the last thing you put on." In this case, the last, second and third to the last as well.

Why is it a pity if someone is "old fashioned"? Is that considered an insult? A lot of items considered "old fashioned" are making a comeback. Items my mom wore back in the seventies are now in fashion, such as long skirts, big patterns etc. In fact, in one fashion magazine I saw shoulder pads as "in" (shuddering..).

Personally, I would take the "old fashioned" items and classics that I feel look good on me over blindly following "modern fashion" and wearing clothes that don't even look good on the skinny model. Just blindly following the wagon labeled fashion isn't really fashion, its what you make of it, its knowing what suits your body and looks good on you.

I really like this red outfit. The deep cherry colour is beautiful on Maxima, and the cut of the dress looks really nice on her figure.

Thumbs up, pdas1201. Very well said. I think one shouldn't confuse classic elegance with "old fashioned". Elegance and some sparkle from time to time, that's what I expect from a Princess (that doesn't mean that I only want to see them in pastels and gloves). But Princesses are Princesses and not models IMHO.

The red dress is one of her few lovely simple dresses. The fit is just perfect so is the color. The cardigan was worn over the shoulders like an 80year old which was a pitty and it was abit too much red with the dress. The necklace looked okay but maybe if it was in a different color.

Although I like Maxima with strong color fashionwise, I felt this was too much red. Black, Charcoal, or Brown would have been a nice introduction to break up the massive infusion of color, IMO. Too much of a good thing.

Red seems to be the colour this month, Leitzia, Mary's jacket and now Maxima.

The red is lovely as usual (not a new outfit). Her hair does look a little flat and not so flattering.

Is this shawl part of the jacket or a single piece?

The burgundy was a bit Sloane Ranger for me. However the colour is good onher. What is going on with the shawl around her chest does she have a chest infection and it has been decided to strap her or I am horrified it's horrible IMHO.

I agree. She really has the right look for her shape with this dress.

Very interesting jacket with the shawl across, the color is lovely so is the color of her pants but such a lovely jacket would work perfectly with a nice skirt and not pants.
Very pretty brooch and very interesting.

The outfit is nice. I'm not a big fan of the golden chain of the purse, but it's alright. However, her roots show too much. [DNF] Fotoarchief Denieuwsfoto.

I wonder how she would look with a darker hair color
