I agree... but other than that she looks fine.

I think I know what you mean, despite an ill fitting dress, she still looks good

The dress style is nice but the print isn't pretty. Would be quite a nice look in a solid color with the matching coat.

Iceflower. Thanks for the pics. You really see what good hair and accessories do for dress in the comparison!

Somehow, without the updo and gorgeous accessories the dress looks downright blah. Perhaps it is just the shawl that makes it sort of mumsy.

I think Maxima's outfit is very vibrant, colourful and inviting and doesn't look dull or boring to me at all. I fail to see how a colour as bright as this is 'blah', but I respect the fact that we all have different opinions - it's interesting to see how much one opinion can differ to another. She looks great!

The orange Natan dress looks very summery, it suits Maxima perfectly!

September 30, 2014 - Maxima in a beige dress matched with a yellow jacket and a matching hat.

The outfit idea and color combination is lovely but the dress is not flattering IMO.

Wonderful, with hat and gloves, that is how a royal lady should appear at official events.

It's a combination of already worn pieces:



** Jacket and Hat June 2014 ** Natan dress May 2014 **

I actually like the bold colours, but just think she is quite over-dressed for the event which was actually the opening of a new museum for micro-organisms, named Micropi. If she wore this to Royal Ascot or the Trooping of the Colour or an event of the scale, it would have been fine.

I like all the pieces except the hat, but not together IMO too shiny and then matte.

It was an opening. When it is an opening, a christening, a first-stone-laying, a tree-planting, etc. then you will see Queen Máxima with hat, gloves et al. Also the Queen's Hofdame was wearing hat and gloves. See picture: http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/Sep2014/PPE14093054.jpg

When it is "just" attending a symposium or visiting a project, it depends on the formality and the nature of the event. When it are her "pet topics" (Orange Fund, UN inclusive finances) the Queen will let it all hang out and appear informal.

Like the colour combination, the outfit is nice, minus the turban, Max looks lovely!
