She use it too in a photosoot, same years ago when she was in Argentina, but I can not find the photos! I think the lower belt it make her hips to look bigger! though her waist smaller!

It is an old dress, already worn in 2006, kudo's for the Queen that she still fits in this (ugly) dress. As stunning as she can look, as drab she -sadly- can look too...

This dress does still look nice even after almost ten years - where does she keep these things?! I like the colour and although I like the embellishments, I think smaller beading etc would update it quite nicely.
For me, the dress works better with a hat or might balance a little better with one of Maxima's large necklaces.

The belt would be fine if there were not 8 inches of wrinkles below it. If she wants to wear things this snugly, she needs to give up the unforgiving silk and stick to fabrics that allow for a tight fit without gaps and crinkles.
We would forgive the hippy belt if the wrinkles did not scream "look at THIS!" IMHO.

I agree. I actually think the belt is very lovely HOWEVER it does take a special outfit for it to be shown properly. I agree about the wrinkles ... which I am noticing on a number of the royal ladies (it is that time of year). I guess they had better not sit down OR choose a different fabric.

She looks out of balance/porportion.

Not all hispanics/latinas have big hips. :)

We shall agree to disagree - I don't personally see anything wrong with the proportion.

Also, I LOVE this mustard color. I like this look.

For me it was ex aequo but then Queen Máxima just "won" it with only the smallest possible difference. I 'rewarded' her for showing a beautiful old diamond broche with large silvergrey pearls from the Orange-Nassau collection. As usual Queen Mathilde showed little in that department, except for her earrings.

For the rest both ladies looked every inch a lady indeed, complete with hat, gloves, etc. as is my favorite blueprint for a royal lady.
