Doña Letizia is perfectly correct styling of the Queen of Spain. I think they both look good with Maxima winning for pizzazz. But I prefer the bright red of Letizia's outfit.

I loved all the photos today.

I loved Max's shoe choice! I thought both outfits were typical of the ladies who wore them. Both glam, suitable, pretty.

But I loved Letizia's "I got this" grin. It just made my day. It's been fun to see Letizia step into the role of queen with her fashion. Max was always there. But Letizia has stepped it up, and she own it.

I rarely like anything that Maxima wears. She just looks gaudy to me. I wish she would go for simple elegance.

Maxima was looked absolutely glamorous. I loved the deep, rich colour of her outfit, very fall, very in at the moment (Rania, and Letizia have worn this shade of burgundy quite recently as well).
And even though everything was very matchy matchy, it all seemed to work together perfectly.

Some details of Maxima's hat, hair, shoes and bag

I guess I am in the minority to say that I thought max looked pretty terrible and I agree with the gaudy adjective I loved the color of the ensemble and the hairdo,and the diamond earrings, but the terrible tight cut of the bodice, the shoulders, the bustline, the wrong height of the peplum, made her look quite huge. The awful crow feathers necklace was simply the endPlus the shiny was all too fussy and overdone and not classy.How could you fault letitzia with her perfect posture, red dress with sparkles and those ruby earrings?
I didn't know it was a competition

Willem-Alexander chose well when he chose Maxima. She is just so very Latin American, almost larger than life. The maxim "Go big or go home" could have been created just for her.

While I don't always like her style, I appreciate her ability to change step, so to speak. She is at the UN and she's all business and she's dressed for it. She is carrying out royal duties and her dress, love it or hate it, is always appropriate to the occassion. She is a credit to her husband and to to people of her adopted country.

Ouche! Isn't it great that this is one occassion where we can fairly assess the presentation of the two Queens because they are "the occassion" and it really is "all about them".

Cat's meow? I haven't heard that expression in years but it exactly fills the bill.

And the hat? Terrific!

Queen Maxima looked amazing. I love the head to toe burgundy! Every inch the queen she is. She definitely pulled off the outfit nicely.

Well I am also in the minority with thinking that Max looked to made up and over the top for me, the hat was the only saving grace on her, and the colors, the dress, totally wrong fit for her, that peplum made her look huge and that is not a good thing for any woman, that whatever around her neck, cheap trash necklace you can buy in any dime store here, I have seen things like that on young girls with matching earrings and it is plastic junk, not fashion forward at all. Her shoes, 2 different colors, gray and plum..........not a good look at all. She over does it at times, and the saying goes, less is more...........in her case so very true today. Queen Letizia, was the best dressed, the color so suits her, and yet she could have used a small pillbox hat and brooch to pull the look together. Love her dress, the color, the ruby earrings where to die for, wow nice going on those, yet I am not a fan of embroidery on clothes. Max had to much going on and Letizia didn't have enough going on.......

Every other woman may look big next to Letizia....
I agree, that a plastic necklace may not have been the Optimum Kind of "jewelry" next to another Queen...

Ah, but then she would not be Max. They all have a style of their own. Imagine how dull it would be if they all dressed to the same taste. The differences between them are one of the things I appreciate. Imagine a royal wedding where everyone had the same taste. Eeeks - we would have so much less to post about on the forums.

And their people might not like it if they all had the same thing going on. Spain has different concerns just now than Sweden does. And the people of those countries expect different things of their royal ladies. It shows both in dress and in their approaches to royal appearances. And finally, it shows in the different generations in royal families. I like the small diversity I see.

I loved everything- the hat, the outfit, color, except the horrendous necklace.

Oh I do agree with everything you have said. It is worth remembering who Queen Maxima's mother-in-law is and I am quite sure Maxima will have taken some inspiration from her - less is not always more!

Max is certainly a worthy sucessor to Beatrix in the fashion stakes and I for one enjoy her joie de vivre. It seems almost contageous when she is around and I look forward to her brightening my days with her sartorial forays.
