For a visit to the department of psychiatry for the elderly at the University Psychiatric Centre of the University Leuven yesterday, June 11, Mathilde recycled the nice Natan dress she had worn at the party at the park on the enthronement day last year:

So pretty! Need your sunglasses for that one.

Waaay to bright for me! The style is different, but it is pretty.

casualfan 06-13-2014 01:47 AM

She looks smashing!! What a great summer outfit!

MARG 06-13-2014 05:51 AM

I love the colour, it is very summery but, can anyone tell me why Queen Mathilde tends to wear dresses with waists a little too high? Is she perhaps very long in the body? Either way is often makes really nice dresses look a little odd.

probably she feels to have large hips (after 4 kids no one would blame her) and that's the solution that every seamstress suggests to avoid it. I have the same problem (I'm slightly overweight) and I resolved using dressing with a higher waist

sancakli70 06-13-2014 07:27 AM

She has a so beautiful face but the cut of her hair and her style looks by her older than she is!!

Actually, I think it is the other way round - Mathilde is very long in the legs so the waists are probably about right for her upper body shape, but it looks as if they are higher. I noticed the other day that many taller people tend to be taller only on account of their legs being longer, rather than both their legs and body being longer.

HereditaryPrincess 06-13-2014 06:55 PM

The colours are fun and summery and the dress looks good on Mathilde, although it's not really my cup of tea.

I think she looked great. The colors are very pretty and very summery. The only thing I would've liked to see with this dress was nude heels as the orange heels where a bit too much.

Frelinghighness 06-22-2014 10:46 AM

This dress just doesn't fit at the waist, at the bust, where it needs to. The stripes are a little wide for my taste on a grown woman

udyusa 06-22-2014 12:46 PM

She has unusual taste in clothes... This dress is typical Queen Mathilde, but I'm not loving it. Summery and pretty colors but not fitting well.

I am liking what I see on her! The dress fits well, the color is pretty, and I like the accessories. (The only tiny flaw is her hair, but I am really nit picking here!).

Roslyn 06-22-2014 08:07 PM

I like that dress very much: colour, style, & cut. She looks great. And I think it's nice that Philippe has worn a matching tie. (Returns, after some quick research) They are both wearing the team's colour. Nice. It suits her.

HereditaryPrincess 06-23-2014 05:08 PM

Mathilde looks stunning, I love that shade of red - I wonder if she wore it in support of the Red Devils. That's a nice touch if so.

I don't know if that's the right place to discuss such a topic, but I agree. Sometimes she looks like a 50 yo woman. I fear she wants people to forget she's much younger than Philippe by choosing such a classic style in both her look and outfit.

For the D-day commemoration for example she looked really young but other times she looks older than her actual age

Al_bina 06-23-2014 10:36 PM

The dress is gorgeous. I like the bright colour and the upper part.

Mathilde looks great again, and there's something refreshing about that shade of blue.

Frelinghighness 06-25-2014 09:39 PM

It is a pretty blue but the dress needs something, it is pretty dull. Even pearls.
And I agree about her hair, she needs help there.

Yeah I agree, the dress looked much better with that jacket.

Nothing special about this dress. The color is pretty, and I much prefer it with the nude shoes and clutch this time around.

I like it, but I think it would be better if the skirt matched the blouse.

udyusa 07-03-2014 03:33 PM

I didn't care for it the first time she wore it, and it still is unflattering. It might look better if the dress was one color, but the bottom half is just too dark.

I don't care much about the fit but the colour combination and style is lovely. I just don't see a point of a belt with this dress.

I would've loved the dress if it weren't for the different shade of pink at the bottom. Mathilde looks elegant, however.

MY husband, peering over my shoulder, thought it was a bandage. (note to self - arrange eye test for husband, ...or perhaps not ) :lol:

LOL.. It does appear to be a bandage on her head! Hardly flattering. I'm not a big fan of her dress, either. But the color is lovely, and she does look nice.

Jacknch 07-05-2014 08:09 PM

I love this colour on Queen Mathilde and I love capes so I am impressed by the design of the dress! The hat is not the right one for the dress - maybe she should have had a hat in the same colour? A diamond brooch would have looked good with this dress!

Al_bina 07-05-2014 08:14 PM

The dress had a Gothic theme. However, the execution was poor. The turban hat is terrible.

Florestane 07-05-2014 08:20 PM

I think she looks awful. What's with the superhero capes? Maxima is doing it as well. Her hat/turban/bandage is awful and doesn't go. Only thing I like is the dress colour and her smile.

COUNTESS 07-05-2014 09:20 PM

The hat was bad. I agree. She is so lovely, it is a pity that someone sold her that thing. But in the end she wore it. Between her and her mother-in-law, the milliners should be hung. A bandage, that was very apt. The dress is pretty, but nothing spectacular.

I'm with your husband! She looks like she came straight from the army field hospital with a concussion.

MARG 07-06-2014 12:15 AM

I love the cut and colour of the dress. It is a colour that really flatters her but it suffered from a severe shortage of bling to raise it from "meh" to "magnificent". As to the hat? I think it would take more than a spoon full of sugar to make that medicine go down!

dazzling 07-06-2014 03:30 AM

Mathilde's dress idea is great but the end result could've been better IMO. The colour is lovely. Not sure what was going on with her turban which didn't really look like a turban but more of a piece of fabric around her head.

christythedreamer 07-06-2014 05:17 AM

That thing on her head looks awkward. Either a hair or an elegant updo would have been much better. The dress is nice though.

SElizabeth 07-06-2014 06:58 AM

She looks like she took one of Max's dish towels and wrapped it around her head, sometimes Max does the same thing.........and to think they pay money for this? I have some old hats, around 50 years old, if she wants she can have them. The dress is nice and the color is perfect one her, that thing on the head needs to be tossed.

An Ard Ri 07-06-2014 11:16 AM

I don't like the mummy returns turban it ruined her outfit which was nice but a brooch might have completed the look.

The fact that the dress doesn't fit well, the bust is too tight, too tight in the armholes and the waist is too big, plus the pattern hits in an unflattering way, must make me think it is the dreaded n designer. Mathilda could make a paper sack look good, why she is always doing that with his brand is beyond me
Just look at the way the sleeves are set in, the seam is quite visible, vs the dress q Silvia is wear and how her sleeves are in at the shoulders and armholes

Are you thinking Natan? I suspect so too. I've never understood why the top part of his dresses or tops are always so tight and small looking. Just throws the proportion off and makes for a very unflattering look.

Very unflattering with those open darts on the skirt. The horizontal pattern of the fabric does't help either. She's such a pretty woman, but these last two hats she's worn do nothing for her. I have to wonder what she's thinking...

So many of the "stock" designs are made with the coat-hanger models in mind so very few take "the girls" of more average-proportioned women into account. :whistling:

I thought her hat was really nice but her dress was a bit too casual. I also think that she does not pull off the shoulder detailing well, it's just not her style though the colour of the dress is quite nice.

Marchesina 07-21-2014 07:26 AM

it's a bit loose on the waistline, don't you think? And I agree a bit to casual for such an occasion. It's the National Day after all. This is something I would rather pick for a wedding by the sea, especially with that hat.

maria-olivia 07-21-2014 07:35 AM

Already.....
The Queen never wore a hat like this ! It will rain to day , I hope this material will resist !
