And I just love Felipe in a tux. Very James Bond-ish. The best accessory on any woman's arm. Is that a new diamond bracelet on Letizia's arm? I like the way she accessorized: minimalism. Dangling earings and a bracelet. That's enough.

MM dress is beautiful, Mathilde is the epitome of what a Princess should be, her dress is lovely and she wears it with grace.

Letizia's dress so so, that dress need a little more Letizia, don't like the hair up do but the color is nice though.

Don't like the prints on royals, in fact not many womans can wear them and look refined, and therefore Sophie's dress I don't like.

The Queen dress is plain awful but she's so nice one forget how she dress.
I very much like the dress of the woman close to Maxima, is that her sister?.

PS. My oh my that's Laurentien, I love her dress, I never though I would of say so.

I thought MM and Letizia were stunning. Best of all was Maxima I thought she was very beautiful.
Did not like the Queen's outfit at all.
Were there any pictures of the van Vollenhoven's.

Let me see... Sophie's dress is awful, I can't believe she's wearing it. It looks like a dress you wear on the beach not in a so formal event. I can't say what I think about Letizia. She's beautiful but so thin. She's so tiny that it seems there were much dress for so little body.
Máxima was beautiful but I think the dress would look better on a slim person, like Mabel.
And Amalia, Alexia and Ariane are just so cute for words. And I liked the group people. Everybody looked so elegant all together.

Maxima: stunning appearance although not too sure about the cut of the dress, I love her jewellery!
Queen Beatrix: OH MY GOD
Victoria: not her best choice, weird color and what is that string on the top?
Mette Marit: I love her dress, her style, suits her very well.
Laurentien: one of her better days, I like her hairstyle
Mabel: stunning, a rare winner
Letizia: I love her simple dress in combination with those fancy earrings. Her hairstyle is a blunder, did she do it herself? Would look much better without the bangs.
Cristina: not her best day, the dress is ill fitting and I don't like the cut at the bottom

Best dress of the evening: Mathilde of Belgium
Worst dress of the evening: Sophie Countess of Wessex

Biggest disappointment: Fred and Mary absent. What a shame

... and as highpriestess mentioned earlier, Felipe could apply for the leading role in James Bond in case he should need a job at some point in the future ...

The Little Girls : Charming, very sweet.
Beatrix : Fabulous. Love the ruffles, love the colour, love the hair. Fab.
Maxima : Very classy, very elegant indeed.
Victoria : Dull in colour, nice in style.
Sophie : Boring
Mathilde : Tough choice, orange.

Best dressed for me would have to be Beatrix.

great pictures everyone! i loved them... the party looked so stylish! didn't the ladies look superb?

i loved the fact maxima's family was also invited!

to start, the big stars of the day: the prince of orange's ladies...

maxima: absolutely adorable. great colour, great cut, great bijoux and adorable hairdo. one of the best ones of the night, in my opinion. i generally don't like colours like that fucsia, but it certainly looks good on her, perhaps because of her summer tan or her personality... *clap clap for maxima*

catharina-amalia, alexia and ariane: oh my god, they are such cuties! so lady-like already. especially ariane, it's so good to see her again, she seems to be growing so quickly!

the other oranges...

laurentien: good! she really did well this time...
mabel: superb! so modern, she has an excelent taste in gala gowns! not quite as nice as the pink one she wore some years ago (a viktor and rolf one for beatrix jubilee, i think), but beautiful as well!
anita: not my favourite, she looks quite washed away in that colour.
aimee: not a great choice of colour either, she had lots of better ones! i'm glad to see her anyway... she seems to be enjoying her pregnancy!

mette-marit: she looks adorable. she has as well a lovely taste in gala gowns.
rosario: quite boring to choose all her gala gowns with the same style. i love the dress, but she wore so many similar ones recently... she should go back to her black-brownish hair again! it looked so much more elegant!
victoria: oh-so-elegant. she is the perfect queen-to-be.
miriam: stylish and sexy. quite a classic "little black dress".
marilene: she had better days, imo.
sophie of liechtenstein: by far, the most elegant of the evening!
letizia: great! wonderful choice and great colour for a summer evening.

quite a surprise the spanish princes attended, i'm so glad! although i'm so sad the danish princes didn't attend! it would be the best future-monarchs picture if they were there as well. wonder if it was because frederik was sailing...

The little girls are just charming. Mabel looks very nice, as does Laurentien, but I am not sure about the hair. Mathilde is very elegant. Leitizia looks lovely, but frail. Maxima looks great. Sophie lacks a lot of dress sense. MM elegant and Victoria who is lovely, must have shopped with Sophie. Blah!! And Beatirx, whom I think the world of, should behead her designer. She looks like something exploded around her. The color is fine the rest is just awful. Get rid of that 15th century collar and those sleeves and she would look so much better.

I hadn't realized that so many royals would be coming to the birthday celebrations. I really liked the color of Maxima's dress and would have preferred Marilene's dress without the jacket. As usual, I did not like what Laurentien was wearing and don't even ask me what was going on with her hair! I really like Letizia's dress and thought that it was very appropriate that Mathilde was wearing orange.
