Looks great, and so very Maxima! My only dislike is the silk stole, which I think just tips the whole ensemble a wee bit over the top!

I love the color of the dress but the fabric is outdated to me. I love her hairstyle, very elegant.

I didn´t like the dress the first time she wore it and still don´t. Hate that kind of stiff fabric on everybody and I don´t like the big flower/bow, though I could give a pass to that one because it is such a "Maxima detail"

I think her hair, jewells and overall appearance looks much better this time than on 2013, though.

Yes, her make-up and skin so much nicer than in 2013. A vast improvement.
Good for her.

I'm not so sure on the ruffles, but apart from that Maxima looks fabulous and I love that tiara.

This is dress is absolutely awful. Just way too much. The shoes are awful as well.

The color is great but I find the style too much.

Dreadful dress. It looks like a bunch of tadpoles swimming on the top of it, and the bottom sprouted some feathers from God knows where. And there are no jewels to drool over.

For the state dinner at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, today, October 29, Queen Máxima has recycled the wonderful golden dress by Jan Taminiau she had worn at Prinsjesdag 2013.

I always wondered when Queen Maxima might wear this dress again! It's full splendour can be seen in the evening and i think she looks magnificent!

I must be on my own here as I'm not a fan of the dress, since it's a little too much for me. Having said that, Maxima herself looks fabulous and I do kind of like how the dress gives off a showerish effect. It's great to see a tiara appearance too, as I have been missing those (but then again I don't often read the jewellery threads as much as I do the fashion threads), and it's quite a nice tiara, too.
