Queen Fabiola's Fashion and Style: July 2006 -

Did someone notice that the gala-dress that she wore during the current Dutch state visit was exactly the same as she wore in the early sixties when her then sister-in-law Joséphine-Charlotte of Luxembourg visited Belgium.

More than 40 years old.......

That's an enigma for many years ant of the many forums. I don't know if anyone know the reason why the Queen doesn't use sashes. Maybe if we could ask Fabiola we would have the answer...

Would be interesting if u post a pic of that dress from 40years ago.
Actually,I believe that some styles are timeless,like the classic or the simple,and the fashion changes,but we always back to past trends,the most interesting in the story is that the dress was kept safe and didn't get damaged after all that time.

Forty years old or not...I think the fabric is beautiful and the design is timeless. She looks lovely in it.

Altough Queen Paola wear sashes ,Queen Fabiola never wore sashes and refused the decoration , why ?
The only decoration I saw on her was for the visit to the Pope where they annouced the Queen's first pregnancy. (Queen Fabiola was dressed in white).
Clothes and fashion style, meant nothing to Queen Fabiola , altough her masterpeace was her hat at Crown Prince Philippe's wedding..
Suffering from osteoporose since years I am afraid we will see more and more Queen Fabiola in a wheal-chair .

Queen Fabiola always looks great, I wish I had the same taste to life and to fashion at 80 years old.

Fabiola's fur trimmed wedding gown was by far the most masterful couture I have seen. The wedding gown was by none other than Balenciaga himself.

Fabila always alludes that beautiful and happy spirit from within and so her classic clothes selections shine.
