As much as I admire Valentino, I cannot get over the weddingdress he did for Maxima. Okay, the veil was absolutely beautiful, but why did he come up with a Nun's dress for such a vivacious Latina like Maxima?? It didn't suit her personality at all. I know it was a winter wedding, but this dress looked like Queen B.' Prinsjesdag dresses.

Surely she had input into the design of the dress. I've never had a dress made for just me, but surely she had to have loved it wear it on her wedding day.

well, you might be right, she said something about it when they design, but i am not sure how much involvment she had in all the organization of her wedding, probably it wass organize everything by the royal family and may be she was suggest what kind of dress she had to have!

I have to disagree with you. The dress is pretty much timeless, in my opinion. The cut and fabric suited Maxima very well; moreover, it does look very much like in keeping with traditional Hispanic wedding dresses. A majority of my Latina, who were married in the Catholic church, girlfriends had very covered up traditional gowns similar to Maxima's.

Valentino also made a dress for Queen Alia of Jordan.

I believe he also designed CP Marie Chantal's wedding gown and also gowns for several of the occasions leading up to the wedding itself. I think his designs are classic in their beauty and ever so elegant.

on royals, by valentino:

maxima's wedding gown
marie chantal's wedding gown
sibilla of luxembourg's wedding gown
clotilde courau's wedding gown

he also designed several night gowns for mette-marit, rosario nadal and marie chantal. the assymetric shoulders or one bare shoulders are good clues to identify them.

Valentino or not, but the only royal weddingdress from his hand, I like is Maxima's dress. CP Marie Chantal and Sibilla of Luxembourg dresses are imo horrible.... over the top and messy.

I think Hermes is one of the super brand. Princess Grace was the first lady, who started buy something from Hermes.

Valentino also made a dress for Queen Alia of Jordan.
It was said that Queen Alia had an open account with Valentino and he actually designed more than one dress for her. Do you have any pictures of her in Valentino creations?

Do you have any Pictures of P.Diana in Valentino?

Regarding Valentino’s royal wedding dresses, IMO Princess Maxima’s was wonderful, a luxurious masterpiece of understated elegance and of tailoring.
I never liked Marie-Chantal’s wedding dress though. Too heavy, unbalanced and unflattering, it strangled and suffocated her.

Princess Diana in the only Valentino she ever wore:

Queen Silvia in one of her Valentino evening gowns - fabulous, IMO:
