that's a nice dress for maxima, but i think she had nicer prinsjesdag gowns. it's definitely not my favourite, i think it looks way too informal given the situation.

I completely agree.
This year's outfit is a thousand times better then last year's (which was her worst ever), but she definitely has worn better ones before. I loved her black-white outfit in 2006.

Maxima looks great - this is the best outfit i have seen her in for a long time and this hat is beautiful (so nice for it to be a proper hat rather than the silly things she has worn recently)
Laurentien - what can you say about her dress sense its just weird

A gallary of hats, look here. The ministers and parlamentarians often use the hat to make some sort of statement, or they ask special schools, etc. to create thyeir outfit. All very socially responsible.

About the outfits of the RF: HM looked good, esp. the neckline was nice.

In Maxima I liked the long necklace, very 20-ties. The floppy hat was ok, something different than usual. She wore a bracelet made of a part of the bracelet of the Indies and the diamond watch of Queen Juliana.

Laurentien.... the less said the better.

Some other info: Prof. Pieter van Vollenhoven seems to be cured from skin cancer, though he has to go to the hospital on a regular basis. Very good news!

And more news: in April there will be an incoming state visit from Sweden.

Next year there will be several events commemorating the 100th birthday of the late Queen Juliana. Several of which will be attended by HM The Queen.

Beautiful pictures! I wonder if some of the gowns were inspired by books that the ladies have been reading? Maxima looks very Great Gatsby-ish while Laurentien looks very Pride and Prejudice inspired. And did she borrow the hat from Maxima? It looks very familiar (didn't she wear it when Ariane was baptised?)

Overall I like Maxima's gown but the hat doesn't work. Laurentien is always bold in her choices and it she can pull off what she is wearing. She is definately wearing the outfit...it's not wearing her and for that I have to applaud her for taking a risk.

Sorry folks but Laurentien's outfit is a disaster. She looks to be wearing a nightgown and robe. And, that hat!

now that i saw more pictures of it, it doesn't look too bad. the fabric is actually a bit silky, which makes it a bit more formal. it also seems to hang beautifully. 2006 was also my favourite. it was such a lovely gown. i hope she recycles it, it was the perfect match!

The Queen looks lovely - Love the pearls!
Margriet always looks so sparkling and friendly.
Maxima looks wonderful - love the hat - a much more relaxed look for her - I like it.
Laurentien in one of her disaster outfits. She looks like she is wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt under a peignor or negligee --- the print is too awful for words. The hat (?)
looks like one of those fluffy plastic things one uses in the shower to scrub with.
The color of the whole outfit is so blah that it washes her out.
If Laurentien wanted everyone to look at her, she succeeded - they looked on in horror.

Laurentiene is well...Laurentine, I like the idea of the dress, yet together with the hat it is h'mm bit different, yet I think she likes to be different.

Good lord, what is Laurentien wearing? She looks like she is wearing thermal underwear, with a granny night robe on top and a birds nest on her head!

im looking forward to the state visit by Sweden next April - from what i can remember Maxima is yet to receive an order from their so im sure she will now get one.

Laurentien looks like she went out and cut the biggest flower head and stuck to it her hair

Love Maxima's braclett
