2. Mary: I loved all her dresses, she looked great.
3. Mathilde: Despite not having the greatest body she can look really gorgeous. A bit too much pink for me though.
+ Letizia: The last was the best. She looked great, just not a fan of her colour choices.
You are right on the mark. Mary's suit wasn't a favorite, Mathilde looked spectacular all the time. Letizia, looked lovely, but pained.

Generally, empire waist frocks are a no-no pour une femme avec un grand buste. Camilla's hair and make-up were nice, though.

Not counting Maxima who proved that it really is good to be the Queen...! I voted 1st place to Mathilde Duchesse de Brabant who nailed each event and looked like a goddess. Second place to Letizia and third to Mary, because I really did not like that dress she wore to the Inaugural at all, and I wasn't crazy about the dark red dress with ruffles either.

Isn't it a little unfair to put HM the Queen in the poll? The question was for the ladies who attended, and HM was the lady of the evening. I would have put my vote for Mary.

No offense to HM as she is by far my favorite royal lady! She is always above the rest -stunning as can be! I was expecting this to be about the other ladies.

The fact she was 'lady of the evening' is a matter of opinion. She attended so therefore her picture is up there.

I can't say who was the best dressed - for me there were three at the first place: Maxima, Letizia and Victoria.

Maxima's first dress was a big disappointment, the others were beautiful. The first dress looks like it was dropping all the time, the inauguration dress was fabulous. And the last dress was nice.
Letizia's grey dress wasn't suitable for a daytime event at the church and the hat wasn't the best choice for her, the others were beautiful. The black dress looked gorgeous on her and the blue has always been one of my favourites.
I loved all Victoria's dresses, the Escada at the church was great, such a perfect choice of a dress for a daytime event with a hat. And the hat was one of the greatest I have ever seen. The purple Elie Saab is one of Victoria's most beautiful dresses ever and the golden one (Jenny Packham?) was appropriate for the last event.

No one will be able to touch Máxima at this event. She was best dressed of all the ladies who attended and shined.

Definitely the new QUEEN - Queen Maxima was the best dress in all parts of inauguration

LOL, no Mabel unless we do a worst dressed poll and even then she would lose to Sheikha Mozah and her "evil queen fights off ninjas" inauguration dress. Now she was one scary looking lady on the day.

I could not disagree more that Maxima was worst dressed IMO she looked just amazing on all the occasions .. I too am a total Maxima lover but am not frightened to say that she has missed the beat on loads of enegagements but on this her most finest hour[s] .. she was and looked amazing.

I thought Maxima was stunning, I wasn't really fond of the first night's dress, but after that, she looked so regal and stunning in her outfits, plus she had to dress the triple A's and they looks probably the best I have ever seen them look, well put together, matching without being to cutesy. I love what someone pointed out in another thread, when the girls stood up for the group pictures, all their dresses were the same length, that was a stroke of genius, I wouldn't of thought of it. After Maxima, I have to say, Letizia was my other favorite!

The first night Maxima was not queen yet. I think she was trying to let Beatrix shine.

I did not like Maxima's blue -what was it : a coat or a wrap ? - the shoulders were horrible.
Best dressed on all occasions : Mathilde.

I picked Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein as the overall winner.

For Inauguration, Queen Beatrix was the best followed by the new Queen Maxima.

My top 5 for each event:
Rijks Museum
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark
Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein
Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden
Princess Margriet of The Netherlands
Princess Sarvat El Hassan

Inauguration
Queen Beatrix
Queen Maxima
Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein
Hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg
The Duchess of Brabant

Muziekgebouw
Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein
Sheikha Mozah of Qatar
Princess Irene of The Netherlands
Queen Maxima
Queen Beatrix

Some dresses were pretty but not appropriate.
