I've always cared for Paola's very comely gray jacket Queen Paola and Princess Claire of Belgium visit "Hoekhuis" - Pictures - Zimbio, in particular how its furry edging renders the flared hemline voluminous and soft. Moreover, her long dark brown winter coat looks truly noble i.m.o.. That bouffant collar appealingly passes into a rather even, velvet-like braid.

Both the dress jacket and overcoat are nice but maybe it's too much checkered print going on with both items.

I think this herringbone outfit is rather nice on Queen Paola.

I second that. Generally, I like this kind of pattern on the queen, but Paola doesn’t appear at her best in gray tones –she needs some warm colours matching her hair viz. complexion. Hence, that overcoat which joins black, bluish gray and fawn looks far more attractive than her jacket i.m.o.. At any rate, the wavy neckline of Paola’s delicate top is pretty, even though I’m not sure if its design goes with a herringbone pattern.

Don't like the pattern on the hat.
The winter coat is nice.

Since I've already expressed my appreciation for Queen Paola's recycled winter coat as well as for her classy brown jacket beneath, the hat is left... Its intertwined ornaments look dressy i.m.o. though I don't fancy its shape. A more overhanging but perhaps narrower, diagonal brim turned upwards would have been regal and suitable considering Paola's enchanting gently curved cheekbones, eyes and lips.

It's a nice, certainly warm coat, maybe a bit too loose? I do like the pattern of the hat.

I kinda like the design on the hat. Otherwise it would look very plain and boring.

Alongside King Albert Queen Paola made a visit to the "Vrij Technisch Instituut Aalst" that celebrates it's 100th anniversary on March 14, 2012 (during the visit a minute of silence for the Belgian victims of a bus accident in Switzerland was held http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1386527):

A different cut would probably flatter her figure a bit more. It would be a nice outfit if it didn't make her look so huge, IMO.

This outfit makes her look wider; not flattering at all IMO.

The colour of the suit is nice but the cut is very unflattering indeed.

Queen Paola has worn this suit many a time, most prominently on Belgium's National Day in 2008:

I would always recommend several beautiful accessories to combine with the quite simple two-piece! In 2008, Paola has opted for an elegant cream-coloured wavy hat and her fabulous turquoise/pearl jewelry underscoring her gorgeous cyan eyes whereas recently, the overall impression lacked sophistication i.m.o.. Besides, I've nothing to reply in view of that unfavourable looking cut/division .
