You know, for the 80's, it wasn't that bad. I think some of her formal dresses now are far less flattering!

I think it's unfair to judge these people based on what they wore in the 80's. I remember leggings, the dancer look, neon colors, puffy sleeves....It was a rough time for fashion! lol

I agree (that judging fashion from the 80s isn't really fair!).

The pictures above of Laurentien are interesting.... I'm never sure if I should respect her fashion choices (because they show such individuality, interesting colours and overall bravery!) or stop expecting her to look elegant. Most times, I don't think she looks great. Here are some examples:

Recently at Claus-Casmir's christening- the colour was awful. (Eloise looked more fahionable I think!)

At Frisco and Mabel's wedding (the colour is OK, but the sleeves are awful, the hat shape is not flattering and the drape at the front of the skirt doesn't fit with the style of the jacket!)

I have never seen these, this one and the one she wore at friso's and mabels party are unbelievable.
Women do not dress like this in Holland. Maybe laurentine is a bit excentric in her fashion sense. I do think that it must be the same designer, there is a certain consistancy. An other possibility is that she has a person who can make what she designs/asks for.

I have one more that I would consider Terrible- her ensemble for Willem-Alexander and Maxima's wedding. The collar of the coat does not flatter her and the colour is not great- I think she looks better in brighter colours.

Well.... again I qualify my dislike of Laurentien's fashion choices by saying it's not a PERSONAL attack! Here are some more outfits from that past year that make me cringe. I admire her creativity but I really think she chooses outfits (cuts, colours, fabrics) that do not flatter her- especially those elaborate chokers!

Oh my!
Prince Laurentien seems like as very nice lady, but she has absolutley no fashion sense at all. Not only do many of her outfits not flatter her, but they are ugly. Some people can where very original patterns and bright colours and still look beautiful and stylish (Princess Martha Louise)..but Princess Laurentien is not one of them! Where is Crown Princess Maxima to help?

Ooh, some of those are quite bad. I think that this is the worst. http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=95171

Personally, I wouldn't wear those pants around my house. Laurentien seems like a lovely person but, I think she needs to work on some of the outfits she wears.

I usually concentrate on the British Royals. However, I really like Princess Laurentien. She looks like someone I'd enjoy knowing.
