I'm afraid Queen Emma's diamond tiara spoiled the look. She would have looked better without it.

She rocks this look. She is a real queen.

I like the color but not the design. It's one of my least favorites from her.

She should wear Dutch designers like Claes Iversen and Jan Taminiau: their designs have a fabulous fit. The same with the Dutch duo Victor & Rolf: tailoring masters but their designs are a bit too avantgarde for a Queen. I would say: leave Natan to Mathilde, I would say.

I so much prefer the silhouette and design of this dress than the Natan one the other night. I agree that Jan Taminiau creates incredible designs for Maxima and it is almost a match made in heaven between designer and wearer.

Maxima looks fantastic! Love this color on her and the fit is wonderful. An updo may have looked better with the tiara but her hair is styled nicely.

No one has comment on the use of the order pin, not the sash? I thought there would be gnashing of teeth.

It's not as if she could not have chosen a dress that would accommodate the sash. It's not as if she has not chosen other order sashes in the past. It's not as if one cannot wear a sash with a one shouldered dress.
I just think it is a a fairly non-Max move to go for less, rather than more. I actually like the use of the pin, however less traditional.

And I'm posting here because I consider orders to be worn as garb rather than jewelry.

As it was a black tie event orders are usually not worn. So, I think it was appropriate to wear the miniature for the occasion. And I think she could have worn a sash with this dress, if required, as the sash is worn from the shoulder she is wearing the dress.

This designer always comes through for her, I would drop the belt however. And I like hair up with a tiara but it still looks wonderful.

Tonight saw HM in the dress first worn at the pre-wedding dinner on occasion of the wedding of the Grand Duc Heritier and his Stephanie a few years ago.

And it clashes colourwise with the purple sash of the Order of Léopold

She looked spectacular in that immense marble hall. The jewels were simply dazzling. The Citizens' Hall is a white marble room with a gigantic heigth, I think it is the highest banqueting hall in Europe and it is a venue doing justice to such an outspoken dress.
