Queen Mathilde in Liege today, October 11, combining a strong yellow with nude - the colours are fine for her, but I dislike the coat nevertheless. And the hat doesn't look that good in combination with the coat:

A sleeker coat in rich colour would have been a much better choice. The oversized coat did not flatter Queen Mathilde's figure and overwhelmed the whole look.

Ha! Had to laugh out loud at that one! But yes, the coat is a bit much. Interesting, yes, but it is overwhelming on her. The hat is wonderful and love it to pieces, but you can barely notice it because of the coat.

I'm not a fan of Mathilde's coat, and like dbarn67, it reminds me of a bird (). Although it does look cosy. The colours go well together but this outfit is a miss for me.

I have to agree with all the comments. Not her usual elegant self, the coat looks so oversized.

I too, have to agree. I really dislike her hat and the coat is definitely overwhelming her.

I think she could've pulled this outfit off perfectly if her coat was fitted or not as boxy and a different fabric. The colour combination is great and I like the hat.

Ooh, now I do like the colour combination of yellow and beige/nude, but the coat material is a little too much! The cut and shape of the coat might have been less overwhelming if the material had been sleeker.

Good grief... the outfit looked horrible on the model. I hope that Queen Mathilde doesn't choose too many styles from this designer if this is an example of her designs.

Agree the oversized coat was just too much for Mathilde's frame. She can carry this strong yellow but there is just too much of it.

Oversize is ok; yellow is ok; it looks like angora which makes is seem like a large cardigan - not ok.

Yellow coat with black; navy or chocolate brown would have been good. Or even if she had worn a touch of red (Liege colours areyellow/red).

On second thoughts no - cockrel is their symbol and the big bird is too close :)

Looks like mohair to me, one of my favorite fabrics! But, I agree with previous posters, if it had been fitted and not falling off her, it could work. The yellow is a bit strong too.

I like the strong yellow on her, but not paired with the nude. The coat looks awful, I don't like this outfit at all.

I like the colour and style of the coat but not the material. I really don't like it with the nude especially the hat which I think is awful. I was going to say black would look better but then she would look like a giant bumblebee.
