Could those be orthopedic sandals? Perhaps she has a problem with her feet/foot. I once broke a toe and had to wear something similar- and they were even uglier!

I never liked this dress, I think it's too much for a Queen, Its inappropriate for a Queen, i cant imagine how people would critism Letizia, if she would wear it..

I fail to see how it is inappropriate for a queen Yes, Letizia would be criticized if she wore it because she couldn't pull it off. It would over whelm her. Maxima is one of the few who can pull off a style like this.

That said its not my favorite, even on Max I find the upper detail a lot. But the color is sensational. And the jewelry a stunning addition.

Only Queen Maxima could pull of this gown, she did a perfect job of it before and again. The jewels really help make this a stand out gown for her and she looks just fabulous in it.

I liked this green dress when she wore it last time. And I still like it. This shade of green suits her and Maxima can effortlessly pull off those crazily wavy ruffles like no one else...and still feel comfortable and elegant. Those emeralds look simply spectacular. Lovely updo.

I love this dress and I'm glad she wore it again. Her styling was great and the emeralds was a the best match.

The dress is very Maxima but I find it very unflattering, especially around the waist down. The material looks cheap.

Inappropriate for a Queen? Come on, Queen Margrethe of Denmark, Queen Silvia of Sweden, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Queen Sonja of Norway, all of them have worn far more outspoken and theatrical dresses than this relatively simple one by Máxima.

The dress itself may not be to everyone's taste but it's a formal dress being worn to a gala event. It's an appropriate choice for the event she's going to.

To carry a look like this I think you need height and confidence. Maxima has both and she looks amazing.
