There seems to be a little flow (train) and even a matching bag (purse): see picture

Her hair is so pretty. Brava to whoever did it. Iwonder if she used someone there?

Queen Beatrix used to employ a dresser and a beautician/coiffeuse in her Household. I don't know if Queen Máxima has taken over the services of these functionaries as well...

Seen the overwhelming amount of clothes (the three-day State Visit is followed by a two-day Offcial Visit in Germany...) we may assume there is at least a dresser travelling with the Queen.

Elles Nijkamp did HM's hair at the inauguration. She supposedly works for the queen still & the hair last night resembled the hairstyle at the inauguration. Though this time the tiara seemed more stable. In the past hairdressers Hildo Groen and Ilham Mestour worked for Maxima; maybe they still do. Nijkamp used to do the hair of Pss Aimee, so maybe that is how she was suggested to Maxima.

According to Marc van der Linden, the Queen has a chamber maid/dresser (kamenier) named Jolanda (no last name given as the lady is discreet would not appreciate it).

That was also my thougth and i was surprised when i saw her wearing it yesterday evening.

A kamenier, a nice oldfashioned Dutch word. In English the translation is Lady's maid. In Denmark it is kammarjungfru, what a nice word too.

Think about Downton Abbey:
Anna Bates who was Lady's maid for Lady Mary Crawley
Miss O'Brien who was Lady's maid for the Countess of Grantham

I thought Max looked absolutely exquisite. I appreciate the point about whether the dress ought to have been reused, but on this occasion, I am glad to see it, and do hope, she continues to use it in the future.

Two Queens, vis-à-vis, and both looking spectacular (XL format, click on the picture itself to expand).

I very much prefer the dress this way than with the cape-thing (although I understand the cape made it more 'unique' for the coronation event.

Maxima looks exquisite, every inch a queen. The gorgeous tiara is a perfect match to the dress and the light blue of the Danish order is too. Nothing to object here, actually

I am glad she recycle the dress, so we could see the details! I am surprise the back how is, so you can not really use a bra, I imagine has one built in, but no spanx I guess? I found this dress from Tadashi, Illusion Lace ¾ Sleeve Gown with Grosgrain Ribbon Belt | Tadashi Shoji it could be for us the commoners at a reasonable price to look stunning the same! just we would need the jewelry! although I guess we can find some fake also ones to get the same effect!
I think this one is better:
Illusion Lace ¾ Sleeve Gown | Tadashi Shoji
and Tadashi has several capes too:
Ca' d'Oro Embroidered Tulle Cape | Tadashi Shoji

I wondered if she would go for a red colour and blue featured a lot yesterday! This gown is stunning, a totally different look from last night but just as magical.

On TV it looked spectacular (helped by the awesome rivière with large diamonds), very nice flow of the dress when walking and moving.

The Queen looked quite joyeuse tonight. A proud and self-conscious lady.

I love it except for the one shoulder part. I love the color, and rhinestones. Reminds me of strawberries .
I was hoping she'd recycle her coronation Eve gown, the gown worn to brother's wedding, or that purple gown she wore with the rubies. Perhaps in Germany!
