Maxima was stunning, Matilde was very close in line. Mary was gorgeous, except for the afternoon outfit, Lalla Salma looked as she usually does, a bathrobe outfit. Princess Mabel's weird white sleeve dress I cannot defend, but she has a lot on her plate and Mozah did look like a strange outer space, fictional, something. The Princess of Asturias looked very good, but pained.

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.
As she lost, according to you in 2 categories, how was she the overall winner. She had very little on to promote fashion, if that is the criteria.

Also the Spanish Hola has a vote about the generally best dressed royal woman (guest).
Mary is number one. Letizia is number two. Jequesa de Qatar is number three.

It was a coat-like cape, in lieu of the ermine cape that her husband wore. She is, after all, the queen consort.

Of note, in England the queen consort wears an ermine cape on coronation day much like her husband the King, although hers is typically adorned with more embroidery. http://britishfoodhistory.files.word...e-and-mary.jpg http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys-imag...07/14/mum6.jpg

In other monarchies - e.g., the coronation of Emperor Karl of Austria as King of Hugary - there was no ermine but rather an embroidered cape. However, in that case his wife, Empress/Queen Zita, also had the more elaborate embroidery: http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys-imag...07/14/mum6.jpg

In this modern age, Maxima seems to have opted for no ermine to match Willem-Alexander, and no embroidery.... The least she could do is have a handsome cape/coat to match her dress!

I voted for Letizia as I thought she was the best dressed throughout the celebrations. Maxima was another favorite as well as Mary. Lalla Salma won as best traditional and originality IMO.

Letizia wins all the prizes for me. She constantly out-fashions all the partygoers. Letizia has a special regal, elegant, sophisticated look, but yet has a 'sexy' quality to her that outsines all others. Ole!!!!

Sorry, Mathilde and Maxima have her out classed at each turn, Plus they don't look skeletal, but healthy and have big smiles on their faces. Mary, too is a front runner.

She is beautiful but rarely looks happy or comfortable in her role.

My top 3 were Maxima , Matilda and the Duchess of Cornwall who sometimes I might not vote for but on this occasion I think her designs were very elegant and flattering.

Queen/Princess Beatrix - Dinner and Concert outfits were blah but deserves a special mention from me because her dress for the inauguration was amazing.

Máxima: Her inauguration dress+cape was AMAZING, the other two were ok but I was expecting a bit more from her.

Lalla Salma: Just perfect.
Sheika Mozah: Great at the concert but the othe rone was nothing special.
Camilla: I think she was amazing on both ocasions.
Mary: Was the best dresses at the dinner (everything was to die for) but I hated the inauguration one
Victoria: The first two were ok but nothing special, the 3rd the fur coat doesn't go with the dress. In overall, she shone in none.
Letizia: Brilliant in the first 2 but the second was too simple and would have looked better if the hair was like in the other photo.
Sophie of Liechtenstein: One of the best dressed at the dinner.
Mette-Marit: the 1st was beaufitul but not appropriate for the ocasion. The 2nd was to die for and the 3rd was ok.
Mathilde: Looks good overall but nothing that impressed me.
Stephanie: Elie Saab was good but the way she wore the shawl, blah. The other 2 were bad.
Laurentien: was Hot in the 1st one, and very good with the other 2
Mabel: 1st one was terrible. The 2nd was very good. And she was the best one at the concert.

So, for each event, the best were, IMO:
Dinner: 1st-Mary; 2nd-Lalla Salma; 3rd- Camilla
Inauguration: 1st:Mette-Marit; 2nd: Camilla; 3rd:Letizia
Concert: 1st-Mabel; 2nd-Laurentien;3rd-Lalla Salma

In overall, my top is: Mette-Marit,Lalla Salma, Camilla, Letizia, Laurentien and Mabel
