Queen Mathilde at a meeting with Ban Ki-Moon and his wife yesterday evening, April 1, wearing a new lace dress in green. An unsual strong colour for a lace dress, but I like it on her:

That green dress is gorgeous. I love the style and the color. This dress is just beautiful.

Shapeless lace dress and I am getting a bit tired of such necklines on Mathilde, she has worn several similar ones in the past few months by Natan. I must say though, this is a nice and a fresh color for her and for the season.

I usually do not like lace dresses, but this one is exception. Really nice dress and the whole look is stunning.

I love the colour. Over the last few years, we have seen a lot of royal ladies in a lot of neutral lace dresses, but it is nice to see a fresh, strong colour for a change.

I actually think she deliberately chooses necklines that do not require her to wear a necklace. This may well be because of the very jewellery-light vaults the Belgians possess.

Love the colour, and I have a think for lace but it has very little shape for me and doesn't flatter Mathilde very well.

I agree. I don't think the neckline flattered her at all which surprised me because if anyone could pull off a lace dress it should have been Mathilde.

I love the color. But not sure about it in lace.

I was about to say that I thought the green lace dress would have been better with a diamond necklace or brooch, just to break up look a little, then I saw your post about the jewellery vaults!

I agree with both Lumutqueen and MARG regarding the neckline. Other than that, the dress is lovely, fresh and looks great on Mathilde.

All three dresses HM has worn this week have been stunners, but ITA w/everyone over the green lace dress. Both colour wise and type of dress, but it really works on Mathilde.

That close up of her face from the Banquet though? That is the most beautiful picture of this lovely lady I have ever seen and many thanks to the poster who shared the link.

The overall look is lovely. I am not sure about the dress per se as it seems to be more appropriate for a younger lady.

Love the hair style and the color of the dress on her. I don't care for the flower, she could've worn a nice brooch instead.

I do not like this dress on her, it makes her look large, and she isn't. Princess Elisabeth is lovely.

Mathilde looks elegant and the colour of her dress suits her.
