The dress wasn't the best choice but her makeup and hair looked good. I'm almost scared to see what she'll turn up in at Victoria's wedding... 

Couldn't have said it better. I totally agree.

I'm hoping Maxima will turn up looking gorgeous as she has at Royal Weddings.

Yes, I hope so too. She often shows her best outfits, make-up and hair at big events.

I like the dress on Mathilde.

This dress of Maxima is not flattering at all.

I think the dress is all right, pattern much better than the one Mathilde is wearing, do not like the silver coat and as usual she has gone overboard with the bronzer and thick mascara

Maxima usually shuts it down for Big events like weddings etc. It seems to me that the day or more casual evening looks have really lost something in the last year.

NO NO NO!!!! This is just terrible on Maxima. The pattern on the dress looks like it chops her into 3 pieces. The sequin jacket is terrible. The only good thing I can say is that blue and silver are pretty colors on her, and her clutch bag looked nice. She is such a pretty lady, I just wish she would dress better. Such a shame to see unattractive clothes on her (or anyone for that matter).

I agree, she has dressed quite elegantly for very formal occasions and looks terrific. It is day looks that for the most part, have been utter disasters.

I think that she dressed more thoughtfully during the first few years of her marriage. A bright, fresh elegance. Lately it seems that she has thrown caution (and her stylist?) to the winds and dresses (particularly in the daytime) to please herself and to hell with what anyone else thinks! Perhaps it reflects a kind of security in her role as wife and crown princess.. Which is good. But it certainly has been more "miss" than "hit" in the last few years. Much, much more.

I have read several times that in the first years the court was more involved with the wardrobe of the princesses. I believe princess Laurentien even commented on that in an interview.

I think you might be on to something here. Not to mention, that we get to a certain age (like I and Maxima are at now) and you are more okay with who you are and who you've become and you do take a few risks here and there. Now I'm not saying I like the last outfit, quite the contrary, I think it's hideous! As many on this forum know, I am not a fan of shiny fabrics, so there's one strike for me. Another strike would be the cut and design of the dress, it's frankly just awful.

I have to agree. She really needs to concentrate on flattering styles for her figure and to adopt a neat but casual hairstyle for day events.

I think it's actually easier to dress when you stick to what looks good on you. Keeping things classic but throwing in your own twist is always what I think looks best. When you look at women who have had great style, they seem to do just this. When Maxima does this she shines, and I miss this!

Maxima attending the poppodium P60 today; wearing a very shiny fuchsia top with matching shoes and grey pants.

I love the top and pants. The top is unique and I love that Maxima wears bright colors. As for the shoes I think she can take some pointers from Mary and Mette-Merit.

From a distnace the top color actually looks good with the pants dark color but up close it is way too bright but I like the detailing of the bow on the front.
I think a bit of longer tops would look better on Maxima.

Now this is a much better look for CP Maxima. I love that beautiful color on her. The outfit looked really good on her. The shoes were FABULOUS. I disliked the bow on the top, but overall I think she looked really beautiful. Big improvement from her last outfit we saw.

Typical Natan crap. A good color ruined by the choice of glossy, stiff fabric as usual, the short cut of the top is as unflattering for Maxima's figure as usual, the seam detailing badly made as usual, and she has no hairdo with split ends all over the place as usual.
The combo is not as bad as some of the other ugly Natan stuff, but unfortunately still bad enough.
