Wickedly accurate apart from Fergie who is more likely to "miss".

Amalia, Alexia and Ariane in identical grey dresses with a flower print at the wedding of Prince Jaime de Bourbon Parme and Viktoria Cservenyak in Apeldoorn today. The fabric is nice, but it's a bit too much grey for three little girls:

The dress is designed by Pili Carrera, is a ceremony dress, and probably the most expensive and ostentatious of the winter collection.

I think the error has been dressing the three girls with the same print dress, and especially the accessories, jackets look cheap and uncomfortable, and shoes and tights are very dark.

In the catalog the girl and the dress look better.

The dress is very nice, but those three little girls are way too old to be dressed in the same outfit. Dressing siblings in the same outfits is one of my biggest pet peeves, I really can't stand it. I think the dress looks best on Alexia, perhaps Amalia and Ariane could have worn something else from the same collection?

It's time Maxima stops dressing them in the same outfit. It was cute when they were younger but especially Amalia. She's 9 now, come on.

I don't know....she is not even ten.If Amalia is sixteen and Ariane is ten and they are still dressing alike, then it will be strange. But they grey on little girls I don't care for. And what is going with the sleeves?....looks sloppy.

The dresses of triple A's are ugly, probably partly due to the colour, which doesn't suit to young girls at all. And the cardigans are hideous. And it is time to get different dresses to the girls.

Way too much grey for little girls. What were they thinking? It's a bit better without the weird cardigans, but still not really suitable. They should really stop dressing them the same. I've been wondering if the girls like and request it that way, but especially on a 9 year-old I can't really imagine she wants to be dressed like her two little sisters...?

The Princesses' outfits are a bit busy, they remind me of dresses Victorian children would've worn. Although they're starting to grow on me a little bit. However I do like their shoes and I don't mind their cardigans. I would've preferred to see brighter clothing on the girls, it's a wedding so I personally would've dressed them in pinks or purples.

I don't want to sound like a critic because The AAA's are only children, but I do think that Amalia is a little bit old to be dressing in the same outfits as her sisters, she'll be turning 10 this year and next year she'll be 11. However, as somebody in an earlier page of this thread said, perhaps they like dressing alike. I have friends with two children (who are similar ages to the AAA's) and they used to copy each other quite a bit. If one got in a cardboard box, then the other one would get in too.

The dress is a lovely dress, but I do not like the girls dressed the same all the time. I think similar dresses from the collection/designer would have been better. Maybe the girls like to be the same, and perhaps it's easier for Maxima to just dress them the same to prevent arguments but it is a bit cliché now that Amalia is nearly 10.

I agree - Amalia seems very mature for age and does not need to look like her siblings dress wise.

Let's see...hmm, the print is too hard and strong and grey way too gloomy, BUT for young girls, this dresses would fit better for Teenagers, so that way they're not too bad IMO.

Dressing alike, I NEVER was a fan of dressing children alike, no matter the ages and no matter if twins or not. What do I like for children is matching colors (diferent clothes/same color) or prints (a dress or a blouse with the same print as we saw on Elisabeth+Eleonore) or even styles (dress+dress/shorts+shorts). So I will always hate too see the AAA's dressing alike, even though they dress diferently from time to time, but it seems when it's informal they dress diferently and when it's formal they dress alike.

Letizia stopped dressing her girls the same when Leonor was 5 years old and Sofia 3 years old. But Amalia is turning 10 years old, way to old for her to be dressing the same. AND there's no way she would want to dress the same as her young sisters, what I see is that when Amalia wears something, Alexia and Ariane would want to dress the same as her, it always happens all the time, the youngest likes to follow the eldest.

Just a suggestion, they could also wear the same type that Elisabeth and Eleonore wear. Ex: Elisabeth with pants and blouse and Eleonore with a dress in the same print as the blouse. It is matchy but at the same time, diferent.

What bothers me is not the dresses in itself (they are nice), nor the fact they are still dressing alike in formal occasions. I think it´s the way these girls wear clothing. Nobody seems to be there to straighten up clothing before the picture is taken. After all they are royals , now daughters of the king and queen, they should look more neat.Let us say, like the Belgian children, or Estelle or the two Infantitas, for instance.

That's the mark,of a dress that's too fussy. If you watch the video you can see the all three girls wrestling with the shrugs which didn't stay in their shoulders. Amalia finally abandoned hers at some point.

I think if Maxima would allow them more choice they'd look more neat.

Doubly odd because we know Maxima has taste and style and appropriateness ....why would she not dress her girls as suitably as she does herself. I'd hate for them to go the way of the York sisters in the future.

Just a question:

Why do everyone here say "Maxima should/should not"??

Aren't we in every respect past the thinking that dressing children is solely taken care of by the mother?

You are probably right but do you think really think WA or really any royal male parent is fussing over pattern and fit and color of his girls frocks....I would hope a king has other priorities .

This is the same discussion that happens on other forums about Lady Louise's clothes and the constant blame on Sophie. They say that it shouldn't just be solely Sophie's blame, but I can't see Edward REALLY picking out his children's clothes. The same for Willem Alexander and his daughter's.

WA Seems like the kind of guy who if his wife is happy then he is happy.....besides he lives in a houseful of women so discretion may be the better part of valor on fashion.

I disagree. Kids will be kids and I think it's nice to see that they're only human. I think CP Mary once said something about how she is glad that her children aren't little statues and I think that's very well put. Just because they're royals, doesn't mean they have to be flawfree little things.

To some extent I agree, but I (sadly) also have yet to meet a father who actually cared a little about colour-coordinating, straightening up his children's clothes and whatnot. I tend to think that men are more practical when it comes to dressing their children (at least that's my own experience ). But yeah, we don't know if WA is also involved in the dressing of his girls, so it shouldn't all be thrown at Máxima.
