Well, I don't know. It makes her shoulders bigger... the cut is for me more than unsymphatic- but it's only my oppinion.
I think she should get pause at all

I would say that that's a mix of 60's and 80's style.

Maybe the central heating was out of order in the red salon, so to see.
Interesting book, I think. Women and capitalism.

The Queen has the following ladies in her slipstream:

M.L.A. van Loon-Labouchere, Grootmeesteres

C. Bischoff van Heemskerck-Telders, Dame du Palais Honoraire, Grootmeesteres Honoraire
M.A.R. de Kanter, baroness Von Mühlen, Dame du Palais Honoraire
C.L. van Zinnicq Bergmann, baroness De Vos van Steenwijk, Dame du Palais Honoraire

R.D. de Blocq van Scheltinga, Hofdame
M.J. Boellaard-Stheemann, Hofdame
O.A. Gaarlandt-Van Voorst van Beesd, Hofdame
J. Jeekel-Thate, Hofdame
M.P. Karnebeek-Van Lede, Hofdame
E.J.M. baroness van Wassenaer-Mersmans, Hofdame

A.V. de Beaufort-Van Sminia, Hofdame Honoraire
H.G. Goudzwaard-Blom, Hofdame Honoraire
A. Labouchere, Hofdame Honoraire
M.C.C. Nahuys-Wijnen, Hofdame Honoraire

These ladies do not belong to the official Household (in the service of the State) but are in the personal service of Her Majesty The Queen herself. The other royal ladies do not have a Hofdame in their service. When they do perform official duties, a Hofdame from the Queen is placed at their disposal.

Please, do not mix Hofdames and Dames du Palais with gardeners, cooks and other staff. They are very high in the Court hierarchy, do have their own appartment inside the palaces and their own social agenda (in the service of the Queen). They invite guests to entertain them and they also attend events in the Corps Diplomatique, in noble families, etc. on behalf of the Queen. They are served as well by the Household, are seated next to the Queen in her car or carriage, travel with her all over the world.

They are not paid for their services. Nobility is not a requirement an sich, but as you need to be fiancially independent, being 'of a certain standing' and need to have a 'social network', it simply often are ladies from the aristocracy or the patriciate ('old money'). You can see that in the double names above.

Thank you Henri for clearing that up!
Also, may it be possible, that Maxima has something like secretary or something like that?

And also please notice me, if links doesn't work.
She doesn't have a lady-in-waiting of her own yet, but sometime a lady-in-waiting of HM, The Queen accompanies the Princess. Henri gave an overview of the ladies-in-waiting and it is Lieke Gaarlandt-van Voorst van Beesd that most often accompanies Maxima.

There is a particulier secretariate for the Prince of Orange and his spouse. The Prince has a small staff at his disposal.

In the beginning of Máxima's royal life, the Queen has detached mrs. O.A. ('Lieke') Gaarlandt-Van Voorst van Beesd, Hofdame, in Máxima's service. This Hofdame is a very distinghuised lady (they all are) who can look pretty sturdy, and looks like a tough lady to work with. I think she has been given the order to 'model' miss Zorreguieta into the royal framework.

On this picture you see Máxima and her regular Hofdame, mrs. O.A. ('Lieke')Gaarlandt-Van Voorst van Beesd. She is recognizable by the nassaublue ribbon with a golden crowned 'B' on her lapels:

On this picture you see Máxima and her Hofdame again. You see that she looks like a tough lady to cooperate with:

I don't like this dress either (even if it is better then the last one).
It looks like a combination of what Mabel would wear and what Beatrix could wear .
But I agree that she looks happy! I like her hair!

The leopard print dress is awful. The cut is okay, but the fabric... princesses shouldn't be allowed to wear prints like these...
