Wow, what an answer! Thanks for elaborating, Henri M.!

Great great great dress!

I'm with the concensus here on the visit overall: I think we can really conclude it has been a success so far! These two royals are trying hard, one can tell. They're doing something right, kudo's where they are due!

I like her brown outfit. She looked very pretty. I think her hair looked nice, too (well, until the wind changed it at all ).

"One for the father, one for the mother and one for the country"

On another poster was stated:

One Australian participant told the Princess that she & her husband in fact had listened well to the general advice by the Australian Government, which stimulates a couple to have 3 kids....:

" One for the father, one for the mother and the third one for the country"

To which the Princess replied dryly that in her case the first one was 'for the country'

It's so pity that Maxima's hair is unattended.
She must give more attention on the hair.

I agree, Anneke. See my post on this: The Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima, Current Events 6 (Feb 2006 - Jan 2007)

i must say that the photos with the messy hair were obviously caused by heavy airwaves. i actually think her hair was fine... just pulled down and combed on one side... nothing terrible about it appart from the incident.

I think Princess Maxima looks wonderful, can't stop the wind blowing your hair or even a skirt for that matter.

I think that CP Maxima is elegant and knows what colour suit or not.
Pink, brown, kaki, deep blue, violet, purple, grey suit her very good.
She often wears orange clothes : a clin d'oeil, I suppose ;-)

She always wears nice and elegant shoes and has original purses.
Who knows the designers ?

For sure the Princess has an elegant garderobe with her, but her overall image is destroyed by the horrible coiffure.

My assumption for the Princess' garderobe of this week:

(Click to enlarge. Source: seegerpress)

Natan Couture Collection 2006 (Edouard Vermeulen) Bruxelles

is very similar to = Valentino Couture Collection Spring/Summer 2006

I think it is Valentino Prêt-à-Porter Collection 2006

Yes..She must be more careful with her hair, but she looks splendid, all the same. And if you looks at her carefully...you may easily notice that the baby is right there!

I also very much like Maxima but the pictures in front of the Sydney Opera House were absolutely horrible..The hair and those awful sunglasses! No, she needs to be more careful and polished..
I loved all of her dresses though and her coiffure was excellent for the formal dinner in the white dress..

And thanks, a little late, sorry, for the information about her entourage..

I think Maxima looks like a movie star, she is well dressed and incredibly beautiful (and it looks like her two daughters will look like her, lucky them) in my opinion the loose hair just make disappear the formality of the events in a nice way
