I agree. Beautiful color, but the dress itself is very unflattering on Max.

jan taminiau does wonders for maxima, but this one seems to be the odd exception.

the natan blue turquoise dress is nice, but it just doesn't suit maxima and ages her too much.

The dress for the Prime Ministerial luncheon looks like a grubby 70s quilted bedspread...with shockingly bad hemming..
A rare fail for Taminiau..and for the Queen this [on an otherwise very well dressed] tour.

The Taminiau dress & cape looks ugly and messy. Somehow Max gets away even with such atrocities.

I'd love to see one in hot fuchsia pink! Doesn't she already have one?

Yes, but it was a trouser suit I think - somehow it looks better with a skirt.

Yes, And she should get rid of Natan altogether............this dress is horrible on her, take a look at the bust line.......very bad fit there, it flattens her bust and the seams aren't in the right place.......and those sleeves, why is she turning into an aged middle class lady with no taste lately.

Yes his design on this and most is to flatten the bust and accentuate the stomach! Love the sleeves and material and jewels

I have mixed feelings about Maxima's latest Natan dress. I love the colour, though the sleeves are not my cup of tea, but as they're as 'Maxima' as one can go and only she can carry that look off, then the sleeves are kind of alright I guess. But, it's the fitting of the dress that puts me off - somehow it makes Maxima seem a lot bigger.

The color is great but the sleeves are dreadful.

The first time I saw this ensemble it was teamed with a beautiful up do and hat with complimentary clutch and shoes. Beautiful jewellery "finished" the ensemble perfectly.

The second occasion she left her hair down, but it looked dressed and showed her beautiful earrings quite clearly and showcased one of her most beautiful brooches.

This outing screams "daywear" and the first photo shows a somewhat bedraggled look. Her loose hair looks almost like she ran out of time and didn't finish getting "dressed". Yikes, her hair is even caught in a brooch!

I like this dress very much and enjoy seeing these extravagant bows. However, the gold material accent in the upper bodice area is not quite right and I am not quite sure why.

to be blunt I thought we had a wardrobe malfunction until I realised that what looks like "skin" is in fact the lining of the bows. Thats the good news but the fuss and the shine and the bows are just too fussy; and it makes her look as if she has a bigger body shape than she has.
