Mary, Mary, Mary! Why did you wear that white and black floral thing to the inauguration today, then turn around and choose something elegant to wear this evening? The floral would have been perfect for the boat.

Mette-Marit definitely looks much better tonight and a much better choice of gown too. The shrug might come in handy as I hear its chilly tonight in Amsterdam.

Lots of good pictures here. (originally posted by ladongas)

It's odd, but I like Mabel's dress from the Water Pageant.


^^had to take a second and let that sink in. I actually like a dress of Mabel's. Scary.

LOL, Mabel's dress this evening actually was normal if you could bypass the enormous bow in front!

The tiara goes so well with the dress and Stephanie. Guillaume looks proud as a peacock and I can see why.
Stephanie's dress is ALMOST too shiny in the skirt, but not quite too shiny...but it does reflect the red carpet? The neckline suits her perfectly. She is totally Princess tonight.
I largely agree with you, Mariel, except that I love Elie Saab and think that he dresses the Luxembourg women very well.

I think that what brings Stephanie down are the accessories -- the scarves and shawls and (now) hats. In some conscious or unconscious way, I wonder if she may be trying to hide herself behind them... which would be a shame, because in interviews she appears to be a very intelligent, confident, and poised young woman. She is also lovely, and she would do very well simply to wear the clothes without additional accoutrements -- or to choose more attractive ones when they are required by protocol, such as today's hat... and to be as comfortable in her own skin while wearing beautiful clothes as she is in the more challenging circumstance of a television interview.

Letizia looks wonderful.

Stephanie...disappointed in that one.

CP Mathilde ...not a fan of that dress.

CP Mette-Marit...not a fan of that one either.

Camilla...sigh. Someone PLEASE send her a proper bra!

Victoria's gown was kinda blah...didn't think it went well with her skin tones.


I think the star was Letizia...great dress.

Thanks everyone for all of these links to photos. In between watching the NOS feed I kept coming back here and clicked away a good part of my day!

There is a good summary of the hat fashion here. Some of the photos might be repeats but it's nice to see things all in the same place.

Eduoard Vermeulen of Natan was interviewed on tv yesterday. Apparently Máxima took her three daughters to the designer an they helped him with the design, gave ideas etc.

Fiona Hering (fashion editor) claims that for Mr. Vermeulen it was a surprise that Máxima was wearing this outfit in the morning. She ordered it a while ago but did't say that it would be used for this event. So he was very surprised and happy about it. The skirt was made from a fabric bought by Beatrix in Turkey & wich she gave to Máxima.

Jan Taminiau, the designer of the blue and burgundy dresses of Máxima, was overwhelmed by it all. Both dresses were embroidered in atellier Lesage in Paris, it was a LOT of work, again according to Fiona Hering.

The white bow on Mabel's black dress is said to have come from her wedding gown, so this way Friso is still there in some way.

I think excesively big hats don´t suit these gala clothes, but some of the guest made they work, as was the case of Mathilde. She was my favourite from the ceremony.
