What a beautiful dress and I like it the royal couple use so many different salons for their official pictures. I like the fresh white room, I think the white marble vestibule at Noordeinde.

She does look lovely. I wish she would leave the wrap/shawl/pashmina at home sometimes or just wear a jacket.

I love the floral dress. And I'm not a big fan of floral.

I must admit that I often dislike Natan's designs but this floral print dress looks really lovely on Maxima. Its style is kept simple, so the print can stand out. Simple and elegant. Thumbs up.

The dress is lovely and appropriate given the occasion what I don't get is how she didn't bother doing anything with her hair ?

Oh i think she had at least washed it! She had the diplomatic corps dinner in the evening so left it so it could be styled for that. I am presuming that there was some extensions in there too.

Beautiful dress! She looks fantastic. Her hair, well, yes, it could be better, but the rest of the look makes up for it, IMO.

I don't think her hair holds a style well at all. Some hair textures just don't, no matter how much product you put in them. Those photos of the floral dress seem to show a nice, "done" style (see the first, full-length shot posted here) quickly deflating into flyaway tangles as the event went on. If I were her I'd probably wear it up all the time to keep it under control, since that seems to work for her, but then you see it looking its best while down in a situation like that family photo (where she likely had someone touching it up every few minutes) and I guess I can see why she doesn't give up the dream that one day she'll manage to actually wear it down and keep it looking nice all the way through an engagement.

I agree with this. I think what we have here is someone who has colored her hair for years, which in her case has affected the texture and body, and no matter how hard she tries, if she wears it down, it's going to get wispy and bedraggled looking after a while. For whatever reason, she seems to like wearing it down, so none of that is going to change.

Edited to add: I think Princess Charlene has some of the same issues with texture and thickness, and she dealt with it by getting a short crop, which a lot of people don't seem to like, but which took care of the unkempt appearance Max is sometimes critiqued for.

Queen Maxima in an original way the outfit she wore during Queen 2004 in Groningen 'recycled'. The denim jacket and red beret Máxima wore at that time remain one of the most talked about and best outfits that she has ever worn. Today, King's weather in Groningen, the red beret Máxima decided again to turn her head and Alexia pulled at the end of the program the jacket that bore her mother 14 years ago:Hét spijkerjasje en de rode baret terug in Groningen | De Oranjes
