It is equally applicable for the Belgian flag colours : http://1.lavenircdn.net/Assets/Image..._.jpg.h600.jpg -Queen Paola as viewer at the 2014 World Cup qualification soccer match Belgium vs. Serbia on June 7, 2013.
More vibrant red for the queen on June 12 during the cress site opening in Laeken:

Paola wore this outfit e.g. in 2010 when she handed out the Prize Queen Paola for Education and I totally loved how her multicoloured skirt resembled children's paintings befitting the occasion.
On June 17 Paola attended the closing concert of the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition:

Those subtly deviant silver shades provide her combination with a certain visual animation highlighted by glittering embellishments on the jacket (which brings this ingenious looking one http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/3214/roire.jpg to my mind).

Yes, but truth be told, I prefer ruby or garnet shades on her -this flame red somehow jars with the queen's thoroughly gracile looks i.m.h.o.. Nevertheless, the geometry of Paola's outfit (symmetrical black collar, pocket and sleeve details interacting with gimp embroidery along the diagonal parting) appeals to me very much.

It is the last month for Paola as queen consort of the reigning king of the Belgians... She was present at Albert's abdication announcement on July 3, 2013:

She owns various jackets in different colours exhibiting that chic "signature" zigzag neckline whereas I recall neither her fresh looking summer dress nor the earrings.

Queen Paola during two receptions on July 8 and 10, the first look is a typical Paola choice, the second one in that soft colour is really nice and elegant:

I really love that second outfit. Beautiful color and a very classic and elegant style. Love the shoes as well.

Queen Paola looking good in green on the Abdication/Inauguration Day today, July 21. The dress and jacket are by Natan.

Too much green for me and there is nothing interesting in the outfit but I must say, she sure stands out.

It would be a lovely outfit for St Patrick's Day but not too keen on Her Majesty's hat.

Green is my favourite colour, so I am pleased to see this pretty shade! The floral fabric is lovely, and the cut of the suit is good. I just don't love her accessories. The hat and purse don't match the green or each other. And the brooch, earrings, and gold bracelets and watch are all in clashing metals/stones. Oh well.

I like Paola's dress and shoes and the shade of green used is also nice. The only thing I'm not too keen on is her hat.

I'm not a fan of this outfit. I think the short jacket made her look bigger than she is.
I was hoping for a yellow outfit, like in 1993, because I think that coulour suits her well.

I know that Paola's odd figure doesn't help matters at all, but the green outfit was awful on its own right. Very unfortunate look on such an important historical occasion!

The back of the jacket above her dress was really too short .

Great color but I don't like the print or the hat.

Here you see one belated addition from King Albert and Queen Paola's visit to Liège on July 19, 2013:

Does anybody know if the dress is new? All other recent outfits in July (cf. http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...3-a-35400.html) -except Her Majesty's green Natan two-piece of course- looked familiar to me...

That dress she wore in Liege has been a great choice!

Today, July 31, at the mass held for the 20th anniversary of the death of King Baudouin in Brussels Paola chose a combination in dark blue:

Nice surprise. The new haircut and color looks very good in her, it makes her look younger.
