Lovely as it all is, makes Max look like a rather large lady, IMO

Daily Mail has another suggestion for the hat "beehive"

I always love Maxima's willingness to go out on a limb for fashion but this hat looks like a hair rat! Yuk!

Hmm, not a fan of any of this really, the coat (and to a lesser extent the dress) look matronly...and yes, the hat is atrocious. It looks like a beaver pelt!
A rare miss for the usually magnificent Maxima.

I totally adored the first day outfit with the large nude hat. Magnificent.
I also liked the gold evening dress. Not one of the best she wore, but fully suitable for a queen. Perfect choice also.
The pink flower print coat and the small hat? Not bad, but should be kept for a future decade, now it makes her look large and older.
The last evening gown ? Same word. Not my cup of tea, but regal.
It is something I do not understand for the dress codes. First evening it was short dress and second long ? Shouldn't be the two evening dinners of a same level ?

It is the bâton of the Ordre National du Mérite.
In the evening she wore a miniature.
The grandest version (sash and breast star) is only for white-tie events.

Usually yes, but luckily for us the Dutch did not go the dreadful way of the Élysée to require wrinkled polyester suits and daily dress for a grand evening at the Petit Palais... come on... I like it they went all-the-way: dozens of footmen in splendid uniforms, truckloads of flowers, illumination specialists to set the venue in fairytale light, classical French and Dutch music with excellent soloïsts... that is how it should be done...

Who cares about the coat when she's wearing a recycled hairdo from the night before and hiding the back in a behive hat? Well okay, I loath the coat but the hair . . .

The pink dress is lovely and strangely the brown hat, belt and shoes look surprisingly nice asaccessories. But the hair is just awful. It was worse the night before when it managed to add a couple of decades to her age, but to recycle that look for the day? Max, didn't you take your hairdresser? If so . . . it's time for a new one.
