There is nothing good about this outfit and hat.........the colors are horrible on her, that hat if that is what it is, is hideous on her. This entire outfit is a big miss.......what was going through her mind I wonder.

don't like any of it either, hat, dress, jacket, fabrics or colors. Too much, too shiny

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.

There are hat and glove event, and there are "go shiny" events. The latter is where the outfit, IMO, would be appropriate - christenings, weddings, celebrations, the Trooping (or equivalent). For other events where hats and gloves are still used, I would prefer to see a little more reserved dressing.

October 1, 2014 - Maxima today in a lovely grey outfit. The two shades of grey work very well and I do like the boxy fit of her top with the pants.

I like the colors. I would have liked the dress if the print would have been more subtle.

I wish she would retire these shoes, sadly they seem to be a favorite.

I like the dress and hat - she can carry them off. Sadly, the shoes make her feet look like pig's trotters.

Oh no, please don't ask Queen Maxima to dress in a more reserved way. I say she should dress up as high as she can, at any event she likes, with capes, turbans, shiny fabrics, bold colours and with as much flare and sparkle as she can muster!

Looking amazing, as usual. My only complaint has to be those shoes, they are the same ones she wore to the opening of the parliament, right?

Love the dress, love the accessories, love the way Max pushes the envelope and, you've gotta love it when she's "Dressed to the Max"!

I love those naugty little peeptoes, they were sooooo cool sticking out from under a sedate (for Max) Court Dress. Daywear, not so much.

Taste is in the eye of the beholder. However I applaud Queen Máxima for maintaining the "old rules": when there is some formality in the event, she dresses 'up', wearing a hat, gloves and in combination with jewels. With this she links more to the "old guard" (Queen Elizabeth II, the Duchess of Cornwall).

Her "colleagues" Queen Mathilde, Queen Letizia, Queen Rania often are hardly do differentiate as "The Queen" when standing in a group. Queen Máxima would never let that happen. In that sense she has had a good master in Queen Beatrix, who indeed maintained the old rule as well.
