I don't like the dress, but I love the green and marroon colour-combination.

I don't think peplums flatter most women (unless perhaps they are rail-thin, and even so...).
Yet designers seem to adore them!

I like the color combination Maxima has going on here, but I'm not a fan of the peplum. It makes her look wider. The shade of green however, is quite lovely.

I'm not sure I understand the comments about peplums because I can quite easily see Maxima's lovely figure beyond the peplum and obviously the additional material width caused by the peplum is not Maxima's body.....

Day three partial leather dress is truly dreadful. It is too tight, accentuates the stomach, the bust as usual doesn't fit and the colors are so ugly. She has worn this before and I wonder if she gets any helpful feedback as she repeats this dress and the weird pink one which seem to me to be disliked by everyone? Or maybe somebody likes this one?

What can I say that I loathed what she arrived in with an OMG her hair is a mess and meh for the beige/grey granny gear. If it was a private and not formal arrival then OK.

But with her first official engagement she went from meh to magnificent. The beige and jade ensemble is to die for. From the hat atop an elegant updo, the gorgeous pale jade earrings and multi-coloured jade(?) bracelet, to the fabulous 1950's inspired dress falling to just below knee length, the subtle change in shade from beige to jade and back again, to emphasise how feminine the dress is, she's on a winning streak.

Her accessories, as always on these formal visits, finish her ensemble with a distinctively 'Maxima' style and elegance. Needless to say, today's hat, wrap, clutch and shoes were perfect.

I loved the beautiful and subtle green theme moving through her jewelery with the pale green jade earrings and multi-coloured green jade bracelet complimenting the deepening and lightening green shading through the waist of her skirt. This also had the advantage of creating the illusion of an even smaller nipped in waist.

So, from top to toe she was 'Maxima', a woman set to impress.

Added: I forgot her gloves.

Her outfits in South Korea are pretty boring so far. She looked tired as well (can't blame her for that though)... but I love her clothes during her trip to Japan. A+

Do love the beige and jade ensemble. The dress is really flattering for her, it almost looks like linen. The neckline and sleeve length and skirt length are perfect for her. The super gathered skirt with no waistband could be a big no but the gathers seem to start slightly below the natural waist which saves it and the shock of that green gives a wonderful illusion of a small waist. Of course the jewelry and even the big blanket scarf were a plus for the outfit. Don't love the hat but it is ok. Her jewelry is great, maybe an inspiration for the dress? I think she should consider lower heels.

I love the beige and green dress. Really pretty with the earrings and bracelet. Always prefer her hair up.

I don't mind the outfit for the informal arrival - I'm not so bothered about fashion during these times as no statement needs to made!

The beige, green and gold outfit for the first official day is beautiful and to me is a lovely example of where art and fashion meet (I see it a lot with Empress Michiko). Queen Maxima looks a commanding figure with the cape/scarf and that is just as it should be!

That beige/jade dress is great and it's accessorized to Max-ly perfection.

The beige and jade ensemble is quite lovely. The colors compliment each other.

That's a beautifully co-ordinated outfit and I like the cut of the jacket. We are not used to seeing Maxima in such hats as the turban-style ones are seen more often, but it makes a nice change - it also makes her seem even taller than she already is!
