A very unflattering look. The fabric, the cut, the sleeves, nothing works but its a great color.

Puffy, shiny, unflattering and bad tailoring... 4 trade marks of Natan at its worst. So the dress can only be Natan. Edouard Vermeulen is 59 y/o now... 6 years to go before he can officially retire. Let's hope that he does before the next generation of Benelux royal ladies will start to have regular public events.

Yesterday's outfit was nice, and I loved the crazy feathered hat. The coat is probably Natan too but he designed that on a good day.
You said it! Oh my word, so no, so no!

Oh dear, and after all I said yesterday about Natan too! Had the dress been made from a different fabric - matt rather than silk or satin - then I think it would not have been too bad. Other than that, I like the colour and design, although I think the sleeves are getting bigger aren't they!

I dont think the orange/coral coat thing is flattering at all. The yellow is strange but I kinda like it.

Queen Máxima opened the new Care Education Center Kentalis in Zoetermeer today, May 22, looking great in a recycled suit and blouse and a hat she's also worn before:

Iceflower - I love it when you give editorial comment!
I agree this is a great look with a lot of thought behind it. But the first thing that came to mind was "Gosh, a tissue blew onto her head at exactly the wrong moment."

I think that this is one of the hats she has worn most frequently up to now. It seems light and the colour makes it fit for a lot of outfits. I don't have a strong opinion about the folded hat, but I never got used to a hat-trousers combination. Or worse: a hat-loose hair-trousers combination, as is the case here. Perhaps it would be best if she cut her hair short like the queen of Spain, as it is just a hot mess most of the time.

Good appearance after a week destructive. But why this obsession with hats and especially with the ugly hats?

I agree, hats and trouser-suits just don't work, in my opinion.

The hat looks nice with hair up, not hair open, it looks very messy. The suit is ok but I don't like the look of pants with a hat, it doesn't work.

I agree with your assessment completely.
Also, yellow is not her color.

I love the colour of yesterday's look, but that's about it. There's something about the texture of both the jacket/blazer and trousers that I'm not a fan of. The hat is odd.

I think this look is awful. I like the lace overlay but not with the dress.

I like the whole outfit - it's light and floaty and he colour is nice. It's a little different from what we are used to seeing Maxima wear.
