I love the embroidered dress but for some reason it doesn't work well in combination with the red sash and the big sapphire jewels. Too many things going on perhaps , though that is usually something that she can get away with. Anyway, always good to see the big jewels out & about, especially after last week's disappointment.

All the pieces are amazing but not together.

Maxima always creates an impression!
She looks striking, especially compared to some of the other ladies.

Say what you like about her, Maxima never fades into the background!

Fabulous dress, so,great to see it again. The giant sapphire tiara and earrings seem to,overpower it though. Wish she had used her pink stones

I'm glad I am not the only one disappointed by Maxima's ensemble. Marengo, you hit the nail on the head when you said all the pieces are amazing, and they are, but nothing seemed to mesh, not the gown not the sash, the whopping sapphire tiara and the lavender clutch.

I would go so far as to say that all these mismatched pieces together diminished each separate part. The gown seemed washed out, the tiara just clashed and looked smaller somehow. I don't think Max was feeling very special when she made her choices because for her, this is a big miss.

Love the sapphire tiara happy to see it again

The gown is beautiful and am happy she recycled

But the red sash doesn't fit well with look. And while I love the tiara, I do find her a little heavy in jewels. But she us still in my top three of the night, behind Sophie and Victoria.

I do not like the color of Maxima's dress, its just too pale but I must admit that Maxima knows how to wear big tiaras. Wow. She definitely won't fade into backround even when wearing pale dress.

Its a nice dress and the colors work on Maxima, but the overall of the tiara and the sash, it didn't work, the dress didn't look grand enough.

May 10, 2017 - Maxima in a recycled dress.

Not crazy about her dress, her styling of the outfit and the necklace looks great. I loved her hairstyle!
