Princess Máxima was born in a vibrant world city (Buenos Aires), made a career in another vibrant world city (New York) and mingled with the happy few higher up in society. Already as an adolescent Máxima had a supscription on the Teatro Colón (the grand Opera House in Buenos Aires). Maybe for listening to Die Zauberflöte or Tosca but also very much to mingle "in the right milieus".

Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy was born by very old parents, lived deep in the calm and pleasant countryside of Hainaut, on the ancestral Château d'Anvaing. Maybe that makes a difference: with Máxima a "world-wise" lady entered the palace and she "demanded" the royal credit-card. Countess Stéphanie came from total different background, where modesty, a sober life and sustainability are virtues? Who knows? Luxembourg is also not exactly the most swinging city, so maybe that makes that she still is the eh... "duckling" whom still is in sleep for her transformation into a swan... :)

Luxarazzi : What Guillaume and Stéphanie Did Instead of the Swedish Wedding

Simple. Classic. Lovely. This baby blue suit is one of her best. How can she go from looking so disastrous to so pretty in less than 24 hours?

Baffling.

Wow. Like night and day. The first was an absolute horror, while the blue suit is absolutely lovely.

I don't think Maxima demanded the credit card she married into royalty and spends money. The same way Stephanie did and buys the clothes she wears . These women are well taken care of and want for nothing.

You bet Máxima did. She is the most expensive consort of all... (She does not need a creditcard from her husband, most likely "send the bill to the palace, please" will do...)

OT: coincidently the same age Maxima's father was when she was born (okay, her mom was a bit younger)

All she needs to do is get rid of the bow at the waist and this outfit would be perfect.

The bow on the jacket is the only dislike I have. Otherwise, great look, especially the hat.

The pillbox hat and hairstyle are all right. The colour of the ensemble is fine. Proper tailoring would have made the look much better.

She looks lovely...perfect in fact. Except I don't like the hat.

This is a return to "style" for Stephanie, after a period of meh. I love the shape of the jacket with its interesting bow, and the beautifully gored skirt looked both elegant and very feminine. Gored skirts always look amazing in motion and, if you have nice legs and shoes, it's a home run.

Were her shoesnice? Indeed, they were more than just nice, they are both feminine and elegant, which when you consider peep-toe shoes, is not often the case, and her clutch, while not making any wild statement, looked very complimentary with her ensemble.

Having not had a really decent look at her updo I can only say it looked good, especially front on and just to add to that, she took "just another unfascinating fascinator" and turned it into a very elegant pillbox. Kudos for the experiment, she pulled it off magnificently.

All in all, a home run.
