The color and print are amazing. I like the style of the dress a lot, the more retro feel suits her well. I am never crazy of the belted waist feel of these dresses though but that's just me.

I agree though, the earrings were a miss. Simple diamonds would have been nice.

I love the front, but think the back is not doing her any favors. Great print. Very Max.

Love the colors and the print. I would have preferred this full length as a gown.

It's a beautiful dress and I agree - I think a full length version of this gown would be great - perfect for Prinsjesdag!

The dress is beautiful- the color, print, fit. Perfect! Shoes were nice too.

The earrings weren't my favorite, but otherwise, lovely.

Have to disagree, what an unattractive dress for a grown woman. It looks more like dress for a doll or a little girl, IMO. The print, the cut, the wau the skirt billows out, maybe ther is some stiffer fabric doing that. Great hairdo

Oh dear, I'm afraid I don't like this one at all. There's an odd mish-mash of colours going on. If you look at the full front view from far away it looks as if something strange has happened to the green top of the gown and Maxima has inwardly shrunk!

Ah the green top with brown cummerbund rings all kinds of bells for me. My mother had a ball gown in these two exact colors. I remember the skirt was full and round and made of wide vertical panels of alternating green and brown. It was a lot to take in. Mom let me play dress up in the thing and I remember how proud she was of it. Even at a tender age I knew not to ask her what she was thinking when she picked it out. I imagine it did look good with her deep brown hair.

Anyway - I think this a very modern look on Max but am not sure the heaviness of the brown material looks anything but thick around her waist. I'm glad she went for it, though.

Hair and gems are beautiful!

i love the green and blue combination of colours (so classy), but the brown thing in the middle throws me off. also, the skirt is disproportionate in comparison to the top size. i also like the upper part and how nicely fitted it is.

love the hair and jewels.

Why they chose to ruin a perfectly nice dress is a mystery to me. The blue version was good enough in 2014, but this adaptation is a monstrosity. Only Natan/ Eduard Vermeulen could think of such a thing. Sadly the retirement age went up with 2 years in Belgium, that means we will have to make the most of it for 7 1/2 more years.

The jewels are lovely though, the first time I can remember that the emerald pendant/brooch is combined with a riviere. It is more than I expected for the Australian visit.

Great hair and jewels but the 3 different colours on the gown don't work together.

I like it. Queen Máxima has the personality to wear it. Just for listening to music, she was pretty glamorous.
