HM looks great in bright colors--the coral/orange accents are lovely.

Her Majesty continues the recent "gray with vibrant highlight" trend .
On December 5, 2012 Queen Paola attended the press conference of experts regarding the project "Global alliance against Child Sexual Abuse Online" in Brussels:

And there seems no end in sight..


Queen Paola at the business premises of the magazine "Le Soir" in Brussels today, December 10, wearing grey AGAIN , but the colourful blouse is a good and helpful highlight:

Maybe just a nice coincidence, but the King's bright tie coordinates nicely with the cuffs on the Queen's suit jacket.

I find it a nice jacket, but if my old mother would see this she would rebuke the seamstress. The bars of the pattern do not run neatly. And for a quality that you would expect of a jacket for a Queen that should, even if it is difficult to make.

I love Paola's sense of style. I especially love the photos of her from the 60's - no princess of today can match her. Do we have any threads on fashion of yesteryear?

Not her best look, and could it possibly be new? I don't recall seeing it before.
I do however think its sweet the kings blue tie matches.

I've never seen it before either, Rice! Irrespective of its non-perfect tailoring, Paola's shiny zigzag jacket verifies how she frequently manages to appear elegant and rather cool at once i.m.o.. The peaks optically beautify Her Majesty's waistline.

Yes, especially its fluted texture and staggered "two part" design appeal to me.
On January 29, 2013 Queen Paola attended a New Year's reception for country officials at the Royal Palace in Brussels:

She recycled her fabulous outfit and jewelry from Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg's 90th birthday celebrations on January 5, 2011 http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/9...E7vOty96Rx.jpg, looking even more sophisticated with her classy patterned shawl.

On February 20, 2013 Queen Paola visited an exhibition at the culture center "De Scharbiellie" in De Panne:

http://extra.hollandse-hoogte.nl//ca...e/18900168.jpg (upper part)
http://extra.hollandse-hoogte.nl//ca...e/18900172.jpg (starfish earrings?)
I always love how Paola uses classical pieces like this herringbone jacket with additional nice, fashionable elements -she owns a similarly designed shawl as well http://1.lavenircdn.net/Assets/Image...b.jpg.h600.jpg;
http://www.profimedia.cz/fotografie/...0146515226.jpg. In terms of her black skirt, its horizontal riffle http://www.profimedia.cz/fotografie/...0154163830.jpg would be combined more felicitously with a less ornamented jacket i.m.o..

On March 20, 2013 Queen Paola visited the provincial hotel school in Namur:

From head to hip it's a winsome combination of shades for Paola i.m.o.. The simple intensive royal blue jacket underscores her vanilla complexion and blond hair while that red part of the scarf provides a dramatic accent. I also like her figured sandy top -I would even have opted for a monochrome skirt in the same colour...

Queen Paola during a visit to the Military Hospital Queen Astrid in Neder-Over-Heembeek on April 25, 2013:

Queen Paola Of Belgium Visits A Military Hospital On (close-up)
Today's outfit is just okay -certainly not one of her greatest hits, I would say… Anyhow, the greenish colour of Paola's horizontally striped jacket works especially fine with her cyan eyes (like the entire range from blue to green does), yet it neither charms by means of an appealing pattern nor a beautifully structured fabric (Her Majesty usually regales me ). And why not take along a pair of her various nice coral earrings in order to build the Italian flag ?
