I think that Leonor's and Sofia's dresses are great. I love these kind of traditional, in a good way oldfashioned dresses for girls and it is good that Letizia dresses them like girls and not little adults. It was also good that the dresses are of different colours. And they had lovely hairdos.

I think this may be the first time I really dislike something that the infantitas wear, but Leonor´s dress is just ugly. It looks like something that the girls in The Little Prairie House would wear. Sofia´s is much better, though still not a fav of mine.

The girls look great! I hate to say this but this is the first time I dislike Leonor's dress. The ruffles make the dress look bad and I think it would have been much better without that. I love Sofia's dress though.

I rather like Leonor's dress, although I'm not a fan of the large collar but I like the Victorian vibe it gives off as I've always liked the pinafores little girls wore back then. The colours are pretty. I do prefer Sofia's dress though - I love the pattern. I think Sofia's hair has gotten darker now, it used to be blonde but now is light brown, or at least to my eyes.

I am not liking the dresses for this occasion, to me they look like summer holiday dresses at best, nightgowns at worst.
Little House on the Prairie-esque. 1800s in 2014. Not good.

I'm afraid that the infant as dresses looked like nightgowns to me too. Not terrible, but with a different fabric, they would have looked fine in that cut. Their hair, shoes and overall posture and decorum look excellent as usual.

I think Elisabeth looks elegant, and quite lovely. As to the young Infantas, not so much. I think they're a bit too old to dress in such style. Too many ruffles, and to me, the dresses look as if they were made at home, from old bed spreads.

A rare mistep for Leti dressing her girls, but the old bedspreads comparison is spot on.

Elisabeth was beautifully dressed for the occasion.

Elisabeth looks lovely and is very appropriately dressed both for her age and for the occasion. The little girl beside her looks a lot like Princess Louise.

Perfect Princess Elizabeth! Beautiful, chic coat.
Awful dresses of the Infantas.

For the christening of Prince Floris and Princess Aimée's son in Apeldoorn, November 9,

I think its time that Maxima stopped dressing the girls in the same material/clothes. Especially for the eldest. Too cutesy for worda.

First off, the way Amalia is holding her head, it's the first time I've seen an outright resemblance to one of her parents and it's pure Maxima. She's usually a pretty even mix of Wiliem-Alexander and Maxima, but this time it's all Maxima.

Second, ITA w/you. Long over due for the girls to be seen in different outfits when out in Public. Amalia's almost a teenager and she can't be all that happy having to wear the same thing as her Sisters.

This is one area where I wish Mary, Mathilde and Letitizia would try and put a bug in Maxima's ear regarding dressed the A Team all the same. I have no doubt they would be able to talk to her about it w/out offending her.

At least, I believe they could. Maxima listening and taking that advice however is another matter.

Amalia is only 10...11 in December. I think she and her little sisters look lovely together. And, maybe, they think it's fun to have clothes alike for special events. I think they aren't dressed the same for everyday. I don't know why anyone cares. They seem happy and certainly loved. I like seeing Amalia's obvious "big sister" care of the younger two. The time will come when they are no longer children and will not be dressed the same. In the meantime, I enjoy their sweet innocence.

I like the coats the Dutch princesses are wearing. I think that perhaps it would be nice if the girls had the same coats but in different colors. It would add a bit of a personal touch.

But, the AAA's have the same coats but different dresses, which is sort of a personal touch. I don't have a problem with the AAA's dressing alike, though I do agree that it will seem a little childish if the girls continue to dress the same once they reach their teenage years. Or, perhaps it's their choice - I have friends whose children used to copy each other all the time, as the older daughter always wanted to have the same things or do the same things as the younger daughter (though they seem to have grown out of that phase now as they're both older).

That aside, I loved the AAA's coats they wore to the christening, they give off a rather Christmassy or wintery feel. I love both Ariane and Alexia's dresses too. It would've been interesting to see what dress Amalia wore. As for the resemblance between the AAA's and their parents, I don't think Amalia looks like Maxima, but she's all WA instead. Alexia is the sister who looks like Maxima the most to me, whereas Ariane is more of a mixture of both her parents.

***
Crown Prince Moulay Rachid and Princess Lalla Khadija of Morocco wearing lovely and smart traditional Moroccan dress whilst attending the wedding of Prince Moulay Rachid and his wife Oum. I love the softness of Lalla Khadija's dress, and it's adorable how she has a mini tiara, even if it is a bit much for a little girl (but I can imagine it would be every little girl's dream to own a tiara like Lalla Khadija's ):
