Fantastic! Looks every inch a queen in that divine dress. The pearls at the neck and fabulous earrings are so flattering. Love the addition of the wheat hair ornaments, a nod to canada I think.mi think her hair is fine, it is styled, very bouffant and swept away at the face. It could be trimmed a few inches and would look better, imo

Love the dress and the color, however her hair looks like it was teased, brushed back on one side and then some extensions were pinned in ..... all in all, awful hair. Too bad the rest is quite nice.

Again she looks ostentatious and over the top. Not only she disregarded protocol for the first official black tie dinner by wearing a tiara, she's also ruining a beautiful gown by wearing awful hair extensions. Maxima better remember she's a consort and follows royal protocol.

I wonder who made this red gown. Is it a recycle?

Yes, it's a dress by Valentino. She wore it at Prinsjesdag last year:

She looks great and well done to order (Dutch) flowers to be used to decorate the venue.

Maybe you missed it, but in the monarchies of the British Commonwealth, the Queen represented by her Governor-General, think about Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the standard dress code is black tie. Queen Máxima and the King did not wear Orders, as these do not go well with this dresscode.

Queen Elizabeth, for an example, still wears jewels and Orders, even when the dresscode is black tie: see picture. The present Princess of Wales (a.k.a. the Duchess of Cornwall) with diadem during a black-tie dinner: see picture. The previous Princess of Wales with diadem during a black-tie dinner: see picture. Princess Máxima with diadem during a black-tie dinner: see picture.

Max is Max - she's got lots of personality, more than her peers/former peers of her age group could ever think of. The dress is devine but I dislike the hairstyle very much.

I think she looked good and she pulled off that outfit and the color off very well. I don't care for the hairstyle, it was neat and pretty.

Maxima looks nice, even though I'm not a fan of the colour combination she manages to wear it well (and it sort of blends in with the colours around her, too).

I liked her look. Not over the top and her hair looks nice, as well.

I see nothing incorrect with the way Queen Maxima dressed. The woman certainly didn't disgrace her country. She looked clean and pleasant. Not everyone dresses exactly the same [thank heavens]. Her hair is just that, her's. Apparently her husband must approve or she would do a bit different. He is all that matters. I am sure that she and her ladies has been advised on protocol and follows. I love the fact that quite a few of the new Queens and Crown Princesses change their styles and dare to try something different. Makes them human and not trophies on show.

Yeah, because I'm sure that Maxima went off against all the planners of all these events and said, "I don't care what anyone says, I'm wearing a tiara tonight."

Also, you may not like hair extensions (which I don't think she is, but anyway), but they don't immediately disqualify a person from holding public office.

Can you tell us when Maxima's fashion, despite your not liking it, has ever violated protocol?
