Personally I think that wearing a tiara at a black tie event where nobody else is wearing one is a little bit off. Besides, I don't think tiaras look good without orders and appropriate matching jewelry. In the US, it would give too much of a "Disney princess" look, but that is just my opinion (even Mathilde wore tiaras to black tie events in Canada and Poland and Maxima, as I said, always wears one).
