I like the ensemble itself but it seems that with time and wear it has lost it's "dressing", that is to say, the tweed no longer looks crisp and, judging from the skirt front, it crushes and looks in need of a darned good pressing.

The colour, cut is lovely, not too fussy yet not too stark and the accessories are wonderful and who wouldn't fall in love with that rich, dark, chocolate-brown wrap . . . I'm in love. But as with most things in life there is always a but, Maxima's hair is an absolute disaster zone.

Is this a case of "even her best friend hasn't told her" or is it just that she doesn't think she looks a train wreck? Whatever the case, I think Maxima's hair is of a type that requires a professional stylist be used for all but the most casual, non-working occassion.

Queen Máxima visited the IMC Weekendschool on Tour in Haarlem yesterday, February 1, recycling a Natan dress with an animal print. I've never liked that print and never will

Her 10.000 megawatt smile and her natural charm "save" her, but what is the point of purchasing, purchasing and purchasing loads of couture and bijoux when the very base to start with, your face and the hair, gets no any attention?

It is beyond my understanding that such a professional as Máxima has this blind spot. The dress is lovely. Her interaction with the public is awesome. Her smile beams as always. But she is Her Majesty Queen Máxima. May we expect a royal appearance indeed? Look to the other ladies: Princess Beatrix, Princess Irene, Princess Margriet... always every inch a royal lady. Máxima has proven she can rock them all but for some reason she loves the "I am just the housewife with a bad hair day"-look.

I suppose it would be better to compare the queen to other ladies of her own generation, which would be princesses Mabel and Laurentien.

The style is great but hate the print.

As for comparing her to Beatrix and her sisters, all I can say is thank god she dies the dress like them. The time for her to have mushroom hair, pill box hats and big pearls is thirty years from now. Not remotely age appropriate. You don't need to wear pearls and gloves to every event to be queenly. And she dies that well too, even she brings out the bling, the only competition is Camilla. We should be comparing her to age contemporaries, not seniors.

i liked maxima's dress on maxima - it reminds me of other similar shiny dresses from natan that she wore in the past that i think suit her very well.

Maxima's dress is by Elie Saab Autumn/Winter 2016 Pre-Fall Collection
Picture

I thought Maxima looked lovely for the event. The dress is pretty, the lace and color is nice and I like the soft curls on her.

Crown Princess Victoria was spotted wearing the same dress in 2016.

Laurentien is eh... let me say: no competition at all. Mabel is a category on her own.

They can not be Máxima's examples. These are Mathilde, Letizia, Victoria, Mette-Marit, Charlène, Masako, Sophie of L, Stéphanie and Catherine.

Máxima looked fantastic at the wedding! The dress suits her and it was well combined with a nice hairstyle and accessories/jewellery.

Here's another view:

Yes, that is princess Ariane. The left bridesmaid is princess Alexia, the second daughter of Queen Máxima and King Willem-Alexander. The Princess of Orange was attending the wedding with her parents too, so the whole family was there. I suspect they know the bride and the groom from holidays in Greece.

Yes indeed. Pretty surprising attendance, but nice to see that they have made friends in Greece.

Maxima looked absolutely stunning at the wedding - loved the dress-color and style were perfect for her and her make-up and hair were flawless. She wears the softly styled hair very well - if only she could do this all the time (when not in an up-do of course - she's great with up-dos) Straight, stringy hair is not a good look for her (or anyone, actually)

I did not like the dress on the Swedish crown princess and I like it even less on the Queen. To girly, too barbie and it does not fit well. I am also tired of Saab & his lace and of headpieces alltogether.

The jewels were nice though, and despite the outfit the Queen looked pretty.
