Perfection, all of it. Thank you Maxima for stepping it all the way up with hairstyles, jewels and fabulous fashion creations with sincerety, gaity and regal bearing.

Mr. Saab doesn't have the copyrights to embroidery on dresses IMHO. The cape was already seen on a McQueen dress worn by actress Gwenyth Paltrow, though I am sure there will be previous examples of people wearing a cape too. Of course there is a big resemblance indeed.

The colour blue was chosen as a tribute to our flag (the mantle of WA was red and white). The skirt of the Natan dress was made of fabrics that were given as a present to Máxima by her mother-in-law (who bought them in Turkey). the designer said that Máxima insisted that the fabric would be used, though he had no idea that he was actually making the abdication suit as it was ordered a while ago.

Gywneth's was indeed Tom Ford. And Giambattista Valli has used capes heavily aswell. Anyone remember Charlotte Casiraghi's pale blue dress (with cape) at the wedding feast of Albert and Charlene? Capes have been in fashion ever since.

Well, I should imagine that Queen Maxima will have taken inspiration from various designers (including Saab) seen what's fashonable, seen what ideas could be trasnferred into an inauguration gown and ask Jan T to interpret them for her. I have to say that Maxima's cape was perfection and fitted very well.
Queen Beatrix did the same thing at her inauguration by having sleeves made that would not be unfamiliar to Princess Anne!

true, capes were very much in fashion lately. although maxima's dress does indeed look a lot like the one from elie saab, although i think i actually prefer maxima's. the colour is much more striking, the embroidery and the craftmanship of the cape are much better done.

May 4, 2013 - Queen Maxima at the wearth laying ceremony (Dodenherdenking) at the WWII memorial. Maxima in black head to toe.

Not liking the hat, the flower seems to big Imo but the coat with 4 pockets looks elegant.

Maxima looked radiant, the cape was just the cherry on top. The only slight thing I didn't like was th height of the tiara, I think tiaras that high just look awkward on a woman's head.

Really like it - I think there is more than 1 flower on that hat and it is lovely.

BUT - the strangely horrible hair is back. Was she wearing a hair piece at the inauguration?

This outfit is very appropriate for the occasion. Maxima looks classy, elegant and simple. There's nothing wrong with her look.

It's a low-key, sedate look for the occasion and the brooch and hat are just lovely. Max excels in those large hats and I love the huge flower.
