Hmm, I'm not sure what to say - somehow the outfit works really well in some kind of way and I like the cape. The colour of the brooch works very well indeed - maybe Queen Maxima is hoping for a early summer with the colours and the brooch!

She is the Queen of the Netherlands, for God's sake. What was she thínking to appear in Peggy Bundy trousers? She looks like trailer trash. It is unforgiveable. This is the time of the year that I receive a blue envelope with the kingdom's Arms: if I would be so friendly to fill in my income of 2016 for taxation?

That this lady manages it to have almost the highest taxpayer-paid allowance of all consorts and appears like this... It is a disgrace. I am willing to pay the hefty tax bill but I want my Queen to look better than a slob!

I don't think she looks that bad. She doesn't see it the way we see it, either. Personally, I would never wear the bug brooches but she pulls them off.

But... she is not an actress or something. She is Her Majesty Queen Máxima, Princess of the Netherlands. In her slipstream I see the King's Commissioner (Governor) of North-Holland, I see the local mayor, she came with an escorte and then she steps out like this...?

Imagine Mary, Mathilde or Catherine with Peggy Bundy-clothes and a com-ple-te-ly ravaged hairdo? When ladies at my office would appear like that, the would be sent home to dress appropriately! It is a disgrace. Too bad that the always so serene and stylish Mathilde is not my Queen.

:-(

The bug brooch literally makes my skin crawl. I like the colour of the outfit, but the trousers fit strangely. Would be prettier as a dress and shawl, I think.

Koningin Máxima geeft startsein voor trainingen voor alleenstaande moeders | ModekoninginMaxima.nl
Outfit and brooche by Jan Taminiau, like the color on her, *love* the brooche (only someone with a big personality can wear something like that )
Pantssuits are not my thing, judging from the model in the link imo there would be very few women who would look great in it (too much one color)
google translated

If you see her actually in todays venue like in this link
https://www.vorsten.nl/2017/03/08/ma...medium=twitter
imo she looks quite appropriate, she's more dressed up than the other women attending, but not so dressed up that she's out-of-tune with the others, place looks a bit like a bar or a restaurant or something
google translated

Mixed feelings.

I love the top. Beautiful color. And I am in love with the scarf and how draped. I love the use of a large gold pin with the scarf.

But I hate the brooch is a bug. Two ugly beetle brooches in a row. I can usually count on her for a brooch, hat or both. I got none, well no good.

The pants are hideous. But even if well tailored, I would still get rid of them. Too much of one color. The top would look fantastic with a black pencil skirt or well tailored black pants. The green top and scarf ditch a gold brooch, would pop better with a neutral bottom.

And her hair she either needs to stick with updos or learn to control her hair. I was pleasantly surprised on their recent trip when she had a few lovely styles with loose curls.

I like the fabric and the colour, but I do not like the fact that there is so much of that same colour and fabric.

The trousers are awful, the blanket/shawl is draped in an odd way.

Not one of Jan Taminiau's greatest succeses. The hair certainly does not help.

The pink dress is wonderful happy to see again

But it lacks that extra bit from last. Her accessories popped last time, and paired with a lovely updo, hat and brown cloak, was perfect head to toe. Sadly this time we have another stringy loose look, and only one brooch.

A lovely shade but I think the overall was lacking accessories. A belt at least would've looked nice.

The pink dress is overwhelming the audience. It stands out so much my brain think "dress" instead of wondering why she's there.

While I wish her hair had a bit more volume overall I think she called it right for the occasion. Perhaps she could have worn an updo but jewelery on Maxima's usual scale would have appeared frivolous and diverted interest from what she was there for..
