I love the beautiful wrap. Its gorgeous.
I for one and I speak just for me, did not know this was an unofficial arrival. In viewing the pictures there is someone greeting her, taking care of her and photographers, so to me it seems like she is out and about as queen. JMHO is that if your in the public eye all the time arrival or not, then perhaps dress down yes, but please be aware that there are people there greeting you so a bit more care would of been had in yr appearance. After all not everyone is a mind reader and you are a queen so appearances do count.

The bug, gads will never be forgotten and hopefully buried somewhere to be forgotten.....

The colors look bright and lovely but the material looks stiff, also this dress makes her hips look bigger than they are.

Don't like that jacket with this dress,Queen Máxima's wardrobe choices for Nigeria so far have been very lackluster.

If she goes shopping or out for dinner and there are paparazzi, is that an official event

There are two types of arrivals. Official is when you are greeted by someone, and by that I mean a host. Like when a royal to royal visit, and the hosting royals meet you at the airport. Or when you are greeted by the president. Like the Cambridges arriving in Canada and being greeted by the Trudeaus at the airport. That was an official arrival, and called for them to be on point.

What often happens in non royal to royal visits like this, is they arrive with little ceremony. The tour often doesn't even start until the next day. Then they have their official welcome at their first event.

Maxima was arriving under the second circumstance. She was simply getting off the airplane. Of course someone had been sent to escort her to her hotel or where she is staying.


I quite liked the Natan dress she wore first day. Beautiful color. Nice hair

Today's look I love the dress. And I Love the pop of yellow in accessories

Not a fan of the coat. It looks mismatched with the rest of the look.

The dress seems ok, the yellow pumps look cartoonish

Maybe it's the angle of the picture but it looked much better in 2013. The whole thing just looks odd to me this time around. The colour is very nice, though.

I am so disappointed in this tour. She usually rocks her foreign trips. But this one has been bad. This last look included. The ruffed neck, the wrinkly skirt, just bad.

The color is the only thing going for it. Her hair and earrings are great

The skirt really let down the outfit,it looked creased /wrinkled on the plus side a better hair day for queen Máxima.

She was not travelling on behalf of the Dutch Government or the Royal House. She was travelling as UN Representative. Rule Number One: when trips are in the framework of the UN or the Orange Fund, then Máxima will appear as low key as possible.

I get low key, I don't get badly turned out!

Wherever she is, whatever time it is, in whatever capacity she is, she is always Queen of the Netherlands. There is not an 'on' and an 'off' button. I believe she and her husband themselves once said it was a 24/7 kind of function.

That does not prevent her low key appearance of course. In some cases HM's appearance could benefit from being a bit more low-key: the red Natan outfit of yesterday is an example of that. This wrinkled Natan suit -first used in New York- can be retired, though from that period he had far, far worse designs: the wrinkled diaper skirts come to mind. Fortunately we have not seen those reappear after 2008/2009.

This outfit is a bit much for me; the colour is rather vibrant and the skirt also looks a little creased and the ruffles on the collar part of her top are a little much. Though Maxima somehow manages to get away with it!

There was absolutely nothing low key about this red outfit. A lot of royal ladies go low key/casual when they are on this kind of trip. That red outfit was neither, it was just wrinkled and ugly. With a good iron, it would not look out of place back home when she is 'queen'. Ugly, but still.

Max has done low key on other trips. As much as I love her big hats, I don't think she needs a hat and pearls to be 'queen' like some do. But Max just seems off her game this trip.

Just a horrible ugly look for her, she has IMHO lost her great sense of style....what was she thinking...and yes go ahead and bash my comment for lately she is not dressing like a queen. As Marengo said, there is *on* or *off* button for when in public she is queen 24/7 and should dress like one, not a weird costume of some sort. JMHO here folks!
