i understand the practicalities of what you say but Maxima has been wearing big hats to indoor events for years. There isnt any reason to change now unless she is attempting a more serious image and she thinks big hats are too frivolous for a Queen. But these turbans are IMO horrible, especially when they match her hair colour.

I want the old Max back!

I think the new Max is just like the old one, with one difference. Her hair doesn't look as disheveled as it usually does, and I think the turbans are a big help with that. I like them for the most part. She does look great in the big brimmed hats, but the turbans are a step up. IMHO of course

I have to agree. The turbans can be fun but not every other day. It's getting a little old for me too. The suit is lovely though and a great color and I do love that she pulled out a really cool shoe with it.

Maybe there easier than other hats. I don't mind them as her hair is always pulled in neat. Bea always wore the same kind of hat as well.

yes, there is a modiste en chef, Fabienne Delvigne in Brussels at www.fabiennedelvigne.be where you will find various versions of the turban in the collection 'a capable woman'. I would be delighted if HM queen Maxima made her choice based on Mme Delvigne's very evocative labelling of this particular design!

I love the turban look on Maxima for two reasons:

1. It keeps her hair in place
2.) and it's just a good look

I really liked her look today w/ what appears to be a tan colored turban and a grayish blue suit. Very nice.

I don't know...I guess I'd have preferred her to ease into her 'signature/trademark' pieces. If she wanted to experiment with turbans she could've introduced them into her wardrobe in a more subtle manner. I don't see why big hats would be an obstacle to her dealings with the public. She has worn them before. As for keeping her hair in place....hmm, there are plenty of other royal women out there who don't wear turbans and still manage to have immaculate hair.
I don't mean to criticize. I just prefer Maxima in her big, flamboyant hats. To me, those are her trademark. However I understand that she seems to be making a genuine effort to project an image that she feels is more appropriate for her new role. We've already seen plenty of turbans and more recycling. I wonder what's next.

The suit is lovely but I don't like the hat, shoes, and bag with it.

If the turban wasn't beige and blended with her hair, it would have looked so much smarter. At least her hair is neatly coiffed with this style and if she wants to experiment with different types of hats, good for her. I'd rather see this look than her hair unbound and unkempt.

This is the only turban I don't like. It reminds me of those scarves women would put on their hair to do housework in the 50's.
Probably because it is too close to her own hair color as previously mentioned.
The earrings almost make it a save.
Love the suit. The flare around the hemline of the skirt is particularly flattering. Don't love the shoes, prefer the soft blue shoes she wore w/it 10 yrs ago.

Plus, I think she wore it two days this week. Would she have worn the same hat twice in a week?

Not at all fond of the dress but it did look very nice without the jacket on.

Yes, I did a double-take when I first saw the photo. I thought someone had done something very strange with her hair. I don't mind the turban style, but it shouldn't match her hair.

This must be one of her favourite outfits,one of the few from her earlier days as a princess. If it is Natan, I must say that I forgot that he made these clean cut clothes in the past: no balloon skirts, no bows, no stones etc.

yes, i remember this suit from her early years! nice to see her recycling it after such a long time.
i am also ready for a move away from turbans. although ladongas is right, and wide brim hats are not the most suitable for maxima as a queen to speak to people and generally being "within" her environment at visits. just imagine all those people waiting to see her, and she turns up with a wide brim hat that covers her completely. however, i do think she can find an alternative to turbans. turbans only look good on sheikha mozah :) i think they age maxima severely. she can surely find a set of simple and small hats that she can use. or even use no hat at all, but it seems that for more official outings she prefers to have a hat on which is very acceptable as a sign of formality, but there's other alternatives out there.

This is one of her most flattering suits and I am glad she recycled it. Was it by Valentino?
I think she should've worn a proper hat rather than a turban, moreover, I think the turban doesn't suit the look.

It's a vey beautiful outfit and like most people here I don't like the turban. I'd say she should have gone for a small hat instead of turban.

You're right that there are other royal women who manage to have immaculate hair without wearing turbans, but unfortunately Maxima hasn't been one of them
