I don't like coats as capes either. If she wants a cape: buy a cape.

I don't find the outfit flattering at all, but it looked better with the pink blouse in Sweden.

The outfit would've looked much nicer with a black top without a tie.

The style is distinctive and the bow nice and big! However, a coat over the shoulders looks best with a sleaker outfit underneath. Here we have a full skirt, big bow and shoulder-slung coat - abit much maybe.
Still, Maxima's huge personality and height can take it!

The hat must be a creation of Fabienne Delvigne. She made quite a few of these folded things ca. 5 years ago or so, but fortunately she has left that design phase.

The coat actually adds a bit of contrast to a very pale dress. But why HM couldn't put her arms through the sleeves is still a mystery.

I like the dress, that shade pink is lovely and suits Maxima. I think the hat is very odd, it looks like an oversized clam shell. I'm still not understanding the coats as capes look she seems to favour.

An oversize clam shell is an accurate description of this headpiece. A brighter coloured hat would have enlivened the drab beige-pink ensemble.

Well the gorgeous ruffled purple tulilps are upstaging her in the dull valentino dress. Maybe that's the point. Weird hat, does nothing for her.
Large black bowed blouse and shiny skirt outfit looks too fussy and uncomfortable. Looked better with the pink blouse. Really dislike the funny black hat, resembles a dishtowel, imo.
Very nice coat, interesting color, and elegant black shoes.

I think Queen Maxima'a hat resembles a lot GD Maria Teresa's one that Sohie wore at princess Estelle's baptism Sweden's Princess Estelle baptized - Photo 9 - Pictures - CBS News. I don't like it.

Love the colour, and the brooch and earrings - top half is v good. But the skirt of the dress makes her look "hippy". It might be because she is moving forward and the skirt is being pulled. IT would be good to see another picture of the full view.

Lovely color, but I'm on the fence about the fit.

Whilst I like the dress per se, I think it makes Maxima look bigger than she probably is.

Though a bit disappointing given her wonderful outfits these last few days, I don't mind the dress and jacket at all, not even the bag. But the shoes, errr, no.

Wow, that is a whole lot of pink and not a little yellow/orange! But never fear, if anyone can pull it off Maxima can . . . and does. From head to toe, and those shoes are to die for, she strides along looking like she's a woman with a mission, and it's not next weeks shopping list.

In a sea of drab and dreary she shines with her wit, intelligence and animation and is utterly fearless in her pink brocade ensemble. She rocks!
