Max will be Max - and I think she presents a fun counterpoint to the style of other royal ladies. I would wish her less damaged hair if I could. I feel for her in that respect.

The only thing I really question is the endless acquisition of gemstone jewelry. Yes, we all love it and wish we could have it, but if she continues to acquire jewelry at her current rate - what will be the point 5 or 10 years from now. At some point, more is just more.

Maybe she secretly sells excess gems off and donates the money to charity. I'd like to hope so, or hope so for the future.

Max is the Queen and looks fab nearly all the time. She does it her way and she looks happy and the people meeting her look like they are happy to be in her presence.

Queen Máxima's Eveningwear Part 3: March 2015 -

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

Last time I looked, wearing a Tiara to a State Banquet hosted by His Excellency The Governor General of Canada at his Official Residence when in Canada on a State Visit, is actually following Protocol. I am also stunned anyone would pick that to use as a reason to go after Maxima over regarding this trip.

And before you say it, State Banquets in Canada are black tie AFAIK. I can't remember the last time there was a white tie State Banquet actually. Royal or otherwise regarding the Guest. I could very well be wrong of course, but I certainly don't remember seeing any Official Pictures of State Banquets at Rideau Hall where it was white tie in a very long time.

And casualfan, that's not directed at you, but to who you quoted. I have them on Ignore, so...Only way I could answer them I'm afraid. :)

I like it very much simble outfit for the road. But especially the spider brooch is the detail who made a difference.

I don't like this outfit, looks like a designer pyjama to me. I don't like the shoes either and the less is said about the spider the better

I don't hate it actually. And the make-up is a bit more sub-dued so that is good. The loose hair for once isn't as much of a mess as usual.

I can't for the life of me understand why anyone would wear a spider brooch - especially that size. Shudder! That said, I like the rest of the outfit.

Excluding the brooch, this outfit is very lovely. I love the colors.

I love the colour combination, but that's about it. There's something off about this outfit for me and I can't quite put my finger on it. As someone who has arachnophobia, I can only use this smiley to sum up Maxima's brooch: .
