When you see the entrance video and the passage in the grand escalier of the petit palais, it all blended superbly together with the flowery arrangements. The red carpet and stairway were illuminated with effectful light, but it also caused the same effect as holding a torchlight under your face: creepy. In motion it looked ravissante and exiting. That is more than the appearances of Silvia, Mathilde and Letizia: mode bankclerk.

I love this look, but I do think you need to see the video to really appreciate it. Queen Max has such an effervescent personality and this look shows it off. Don't know why, gives me a bit of a flamenco dancer vibe, I could see her giving a twirl and a smile!

Agree, I saw a video of the arrival on Twitter and she looks smashing.

What can I say? Unfortunately, it's the stills that live on forever. The closeup of Maxima's hair made her look 20 years older!

One of the worst gowns she's ever worn.

It is fan-tas-tic. The Dutch really knew how to make a show and they finally showed how a State Visit should be done.

The dress and jewels, take note that Her Majesty did not forget to wear a miniature of the Ordre National du Mérite: http://scontent-amt2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/...03&oe=574C288B

Our King and Queen showed how it is done,a State Visit in as much splendour as petit creep Francois allowed.On the return night they showed what class is,what style is all about and left the French blushing and ashamed with that petit polyester C&A risée d'etat!

The Queen wore Dutch/Danish, Belgian and American design. The dress of the contra-prestation in the Petit Palais was by Tom Ford.

So no Dior, no Lanvin, no Chanel... Queen Máxima has incidentally worn French couture but it is interesting she has worn couture from all over the world but seems not to like French fashion. Even for this State Visit she did not buy French wear.

The thing is, she shouldn't blend into the surroundings, she should be standing out.

The dress as a total miss. The pattern started at a weird position which was very unflattering. The dress itself is unflattering and I can't imagine it looking good on anyone.

Tastes differ. The dress made Queen Máxima ultra-slim, it had an avantgardistic look (not the predictable Mathilde or Victoria dresses) and the glitter seam and lining with the split, the Louboutins under it and the superior diamonds, all together a most fantastic look in my humble view. Compare it with the dresses worn by Queen Mathilde, Princess Astrid and Frau Schadt a few days ago... They looked way dull and outdated compared with this Tom Ford dress!

I only wished Queen Máxima would have worn something from Gaultier or another edgy couturier. After all it is Paris... I expected her to wear something French... But maybe that is Máxima's forte: you never know what to expect...

I definitely like her second night dress much better Not a huge fan of the bottom, but it definitely is Max all the way. She looks so slim and great. Definitely modern and stylish, not the traditional gowns we often see at these events like in Belgium. Agree it would have been great if she was in a French couture dress but she is impressive.

You've said it all Countessmeout. Maxima has really slimmed down in recent years and she's the only one of the royal ladies who could really showcase a gown like this one.
