Dress by Issa.
Lovely shade of green and a lovely fit. I wish she wore more of these style dresses rather than Natan.

Good to see London based designers like Issa, Erdem (with Crown Princess Mary) and Jenny Packham (with Crown Princess Victoria) make a headway with the European royal ladies. Come on Ladies, London is the hot bed of fashion, come and try more of our designers than the established French and Italian houses.

I love the detail on the waist, it's very flattering on Mathilde. Here's a picture of the dress under better lighting:

Dresses by Issa look flattering on most women. I like the bright colour.

I absolutely love Mathilde's Issa dress, that colour is my favourite! It seems to be the "in" colour at the moment, since I've seen others wear clothing of that colour and I myself have a pair of shoes and a vest top in that colour.

Adore this look on her, so flattering! The color is terrific on her too, great earrings. The shoes, no, look like Daisy Duck.

Mathilde looks wonderful in green and this particular Issa design is very flattering. However, I think that with her very long legs, it is a little too short and therefore looks at best, a little unbalanced, and at worst, reminiscent of a gangly schoolgirl. An illusion that isn't helped by the added height of her platform shoes making her legs look even longer.

I agree the dress on itself is nice but the size and fit looks a bit unbalanced.

That was my first impression, as well. I just think it is a little short. I also just do not like those peep toe platform shoes on anyone.

I agree that it looks a bit unbalanced. The detail in the front is very nice.

Queen Mathilde at the award ceremony for the Queen Mathilde Prize 2014 in Brussels today, May 13, looking great in a blue Natan dress combined with a bolero-cardigan. Queen Máxima owns a sleeveless version in red:

I have to be honest, I don't particularly like the very high and wide neckline and don't think it is a particularly flattering design.

The color is pretty, but I don't care for the bolero cardi. It looks old fashioned.

Very nice pants and shiny patterned jacket combo, the blue dress and cardi look way too matronly

I don't think the pants are flattering at all. The floral jacket is nothing special, but the colors are pretty on her.

I like the outfit she wore to the Queen Mathilde Prize. I think the colour combination is great. I'm not so sure what I think about her outfit to the Queen Elisabeth Singing Competition though, sometimes I like it and sometimes I don't. I like it because I love the colours of her trousers and do think they're flattering, whereas I dislike it because the jacket isn't my cup of tea. It's a little busy and I'm not a huge fan on the colours used.

I like Queen Mathilde and she often makes good fashion choices, but -for me- it always misses thát little extra touch to complete it: a hat, a pair of gloves, an eyecatching brooch. Show that you are Queen of the Belgians!
