I'm probably the odd one out here as I don't like Paola's new haircut, it's too short for my taste and I preferred her previous style. At first I didn't recognize her! Changing the subject slightly; she looked good in black and I think her brooch is very pretty.

You're not the (only) odd one, HereditaryPrincess. I also don't like this new haircut, but in general I don't like short hair on women.

Neither do I, although some shorter hairstyles can look OK; I have a friend who has short hair with a side fringe, and it suits her (I have seen a photo of her with long hair, and she looks like a completely different person).

I too do not like the Queen Paola's current haircut. It makes her look harsh.

I agree with you! and I can confirm that in Belgium, also in the press there were many and very mixed comments.
No, I don't like it...

I am a bit behind on things. I just saw a picture of Queen Paola on another site and was really surprised to see her with lovely white hair. So I came over here to see when the change happened. I think I know why she cut her hair. I think she had been coloring her hair and decided to stop. I speak from personal experience on this.

About 4 years ago I was coming up on a hair appointment to have my color done, when I saw several articles on women who had decided to let their hair go gray. I had been wondering just how much of my hair was gray so I decided I would stop the coloring just to see what it looked like. When I went to my hairdresser, I told her she was going to think I had lost my mind. Actually, she thought it was a good idea. She told me that the best way to go about it would be to cut my hair really short, so that the difference between the dark brown and the gray would be less obvious. That was what we did and in the end the whole process took a good bit less than the six to nine months my hairdresser thought it would take. After I got through the whole process, I let it grow out some but I may be going back to a shorter version.

Getting back to Paola, she may let her hair grow out some more but I kind of like it short. Its different particularly for a royal.

She looks nice and her haircut doesn't look that bad from here, but I think that's because her headscarf is covering it! This is off-topic but I love the second photo of Albert reaching over to Juan Carlos and Sofia to have a chat with them. A nice gesture.

The headscarf is a lace mantilla often worn royal & non royal ladies in the presence of the Pope or at a Solemn Mass or Funeral.

1 Queen Paola went to a hairdresser. But she wears badly her mantllla
2. Her coat and dress are recycled and too narrow
3. her Legs !! she should have worn a long dress as the Queen os Spain.
Very disappointed! Queen Mathilde should have done better

A longer dress would have been move appropriate & majestic looking as Queen Sofia.

Thanks for the info, An Ard Ri. I thought that it was a different headpiece from a mantilla, as I thought mantillas were only like Queen Sofia's. (I'm not Catholic, so am unaware of some traditions.)

That's no problem,black lace mantillas are also worn by royal ladies at funerals ,here's Queen Paola wearing one at the funeral Prince Alexandre of Belgium in 2009.

Queen Sofia's Mantilla is slightly different to a regular one & is often referred to as a 'Spanish Mantilla'.

All Queen Paola was missing was the wimple and veil and her Mother Superior look was complete.

I don't like her "hat". It looks like a large dead leaf that she glued sequins on.

I also don't like her hat. It looks like she could turn it over and serve tortilla chips in it.
