I really like it a lot. Good color combinations, fashion-forward. Love it.

P.Laurentien at Prinsjesdag 2014 not from facebook

The dress is from fashionhouse Hardies (apparently she always wears Hardies at Prinsjesdag), but they admit they had thought it would be a bit colder outside than it was and that the dress was actually a bit too warm (fabric-wise) http://www.rtlnieuws.nl/boulevard/ro...entien-te-warm

It is indeed an aubergine coloured velvet corduroy robe from Hardies. No idea why Princess Laurentien, who has so many fantastic shops around her in Brussels, chooses for this shop in The Hague. Honesty forces me to say that their website show nice couture, fit for a Princess, but Laurentien makes such strange choices.

Some can always be relied upon for originality, so well done Laurentien.

I thought this was quite an interesting use of corduroy, which I think broadly worked. Well done.

For me the color of the gown was very good, worked both for her and for the occasion, but the fabric is not my thing (and indeed, way too warm). The hat i really really like..

The earrings i think are from the "leaves" collection of P.Margarita, and i must say that the work well here (am surprised myself in saying that, did not like the collection at all when i first saw it)

It looks corduroy but the Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst (State Information Agency) described it as such: Her Royal Highness Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands wore an aubergine coloured dress made of Genova velours côtelé. Matching this dress the Princess wore a pillbox-hat made of beige-coloured parasisal, decorated with feathers. The Princess wore the decorations belonging to the Grand Cross in the Order of the House of Orange.

"Velours côtelé" is corduroy in French.

Recent years were pretty much long gown, one color (as she uses the same fashionhouse, perhaps that's not surprising).
In her first years attending there was some more variation and even some "Laurentien-esque" choices, see this blog:
