I like Paola's dress (or skirt?) and the way the color gets darker at the bottom. The jacket is just okay. Her hat is nice too.

Same what she wore in Venice but much better without her plastic red necklace.

I like everything except from the print of the dress.

On July 15, 2011 Queen Paola attended the world premiere of the theatre play of Umberto Eco's novel "The Name of the Rose" in the ruins of the Abbey of Villers-la-Ville:

Not exactly an exciting looking outfit but suchlike dark suits do flatter the queen's silhouette and provide for a nice contrast with her blond hair meanwhile. Besides, the structured fabric of Paola's fasciated scarf is quite lovely i.m.o..

How could I forget to annotate these two hits ? Queen Paola has reworn that beautiful, delicate outfit from a gala concert on her 51th wedding anniversary (July 2nd, 2010) just on her 52th wedding anniversary in 2011 -even including the same major jewelry (earrings and necklace/convertible tiara): http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1106330 It's really an affectionate gesture towards her husband i.m.o..
The queen looked simply stunning in her sapphire blue (wonderful colour for Paola) evening gown. It exhibited an excellent, unostentatious cut all the while preventing this dress from appearing too sober by means of a little train. Moreover, I loved the subtle black lace border around the gown's neckline: http://kungligamodebloggen.svenskdam...al_6154812.jpg If Paola only hadn't worn a bolero jacket! I would've been delighted to see the entire upper part of her gown...

I think the Queen looks very elegant in the first two photos, is one of the dresses she wore on a visit to Germany. Lovely :)

The first outfit is very nice. I don't like the dress for the second outfit and the hat doesn't look nice with it.

Fabienne Delvigne said during the wedding of Prince Albert that big hats are back again.
Queen Paola had problems when she looked the airplanes.
Her outfit was very nice , nicer than on the pictures everybody liked it .

Yes, she does. I definitely prefer this version with a dark stole instead of that corresponding polka-dotted jacket which Queen Paola had worn back then in Germany. The dress' structured fabric looks especially appealing at close range i.m.o. http://www.newscom.com/nc/wmark/News...baphotos803301. I also like its ribbon(?) and the diagonal parting of the skirt: http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/Jul2011/PPE11072078.jpg (cf. above).

Paola's chic, expressive Te Deum outfit -being kind of familiar- suits her nature, I would say: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1289839

Queen Paola's recent outfits
1. Queen Paola and King Albert have been photographed by Olivier Pollet for the magazine "Paris Match" while residing in Valbonne (France) on August 8, 2011:

It would have looked good without the jacket.

Or maybe it wood look good/better combined with a different jacket ?
However, Queen Paola recycled the dress underneath when visiting the presentation of a new stamp in honour of her commitment for the young on October 6, 2011 in Mechelen:

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9XQbd0zHNr...s1600/x610.jpg (close-up)
The colour composition between Paola's light, patterned jacket and her appealing deep blue dress with its wrapped neckline is much more effective viz. a felicitous contrast whereas this dark jacket exhibits a splendid fabric but renders the overall look a bit somber i.m.o..

the last two outfits are nice but HM needs a good bra to adjust the outfits and the whole look.
