I thought Mathilde look the most consistently stylish lady after the Maxima. I like all of her gowns. I was also
really impressed at how consistently well-dressed Laurentien was throughout the festivities.

Mathilde is The Duchess of Brabant..

Marengo, you could have completely avoided individual names for entries 5,7,8,9,12,14 and added "The", just as you did for 6,10,13. It would have become uniformly regal, just the titles for all "second ladies" from 5 to 14..
Please consider doing that, it will make the list look more impressive..

Maxima by a mile - nobody could even hold a candle to her. Mathilde was second best for me, third Letizia (on day 2) and Mary (on day 1).

Maxima wins. She looked every bit the CP/Queen that she was and is today. No one came close. She was perfect. Maxima's daily outfits are not always my favorite but she knows when to bring in the "big guns" when she needs to.

Second place is tie between Princess Lalla Salma & Princess of Asturias and 3rd goes CP Mary.

Exactly! I couldn't believe that she would recycle a dress for That Occasion, never mind That Dress!

Daytime: Maxima
Evening: Mary

All in all:
1. Maxima: The 2 daytime outfits (30 April) were simply perfect and the evening dresses weren't bad either, though not really to my liking. It was her day and she hit it on the nail where and when it really mattered.
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.

I would rate Maxima the worst dressed by far on all occasions - she looked absolutely awful throughout.

Mary looked blah on most days.

Letizia looked good.

Victoria - her usual lack of taste showed.

Camilla looked good on all occasions as the dresses she chose actually flattered her figure.

MM - well the less said about her curtain dress on the first day.

I could not possibly disagree more!

I agree with those choices.
Maxima shouldn´t be here, she´s already the winner. It was her day, and no one from her guest could ever overshadow her.

Mathilde second, I quite like her evening looks and she was IMO the best dressed for the ceremony in the church.

I liked Mary´s second evening dress the most. The one from the first day wasn´t my cup of tea because of the colour, but she still was one of the best. She missed it at the church.

Letizia´s second evening dress is one of my all-time favourites, so that has to be her best one. The daytime look was fine and she herself looked very good. And I didn´t like the dress from the day 1, but I liked the tiara and her hairstyle (and honestly, she always looks one of the best even when she wears ugly clothes, she´s just a beautiful woman), so I think it was a good couple of days for her.

Victoria disappointed me a lot. I loved her look the first day and she was my favourite at the dinner. But then her choices were strange. I didn´t like any of them, although I wish we could have seen the evening dress better.

Mette Marit only was beautiful the second evening, and Camilla only looked good at the church. Stephanie´s look were...well, her style.

I am a true admirer of Maxima, and I do think that the blue gown she donned for the inauguration, as well as the tiara, were stunningly beautiful choices. But the other two looks were, as my son would say, "meh".... So-so. The Valentino, in particular, didn't do her any favors.

In general I am not a big fan of the Princess of Asturias; I certainly don't dislike her but tend to be rather neutral. And yet I must say that everything that Letizia wore for this series of events was magnificent. She looked beautiful at every turn. Elegant, chic, fashionable, and appropriate for every event. She gets my vote.
