Yes, she seemed to really get into some really choices in the couple of weeks before her sister died.

This outfit was fine too but what is with the hair? Think she should just wear it up. She looks v elegant like that whatever monstrosity she may chose to wear

IMHO her worst Prinsjesdag combination ever. The wind surely did not help. I am sure it will look much better as an evening gown without added order, brooches and hat. The hat is lovely and I would be wonderful on a daytime outfit. As it is now it looks messy and matronly. It also seems to be a few sizes too large.

According to modekoninginmaxima the dress is from the Italian designer Luisa Beccaria, from her pret-a-porter collection of 2016.

My first thought was 'harlekin'. Looks very messy to me.

Too much going on. Not a good look from top to bottom
Shoes are a miss, hair do is wrong, the dress is not pretty at all

Too frilly for my taste. The gloves and shoes don’t go with the dress.
I like the hat but would have put the saucer on the other side if my husband was walking and sitting next to me.

Queen Máxima almost always gets it perfect on Prinsjesdag but not this year,the gown looks too big on her and not liking the hairstyle with that hat.

The dress is just okay, the hat is not my favorite. Kinda looks like a saucer on her head. The jewels of course are fabulous.

On television and in movement I did like the changing shades and the flowing. It did not photograph well but now I have seen it on my 4k HD oled screen, it really is a nice dress. I agree with Marengo: maybe better as evening dress, but it was really better than I saw on the pics while I was at work.

This jumpsuit looks nice on Maxima and very few can wear them well. Earrings very much the style of the youth today, looks heavy but rather light weight. I personally think much too unconventional for her and position of queen, but LOVE that she wears and doesn't actually care what we think. She likes them and that is all that matters to her.

Really looks cartoonish to me. Like a costume in a fairytale. The dress would only look well on someone who is painfully thin, the balloon sleeves with the elastic cuffs really ruin the whole effect, too much. Sleeveless would have worked better for an evening dress. The shoes should be burned

From other pics it took me a while to realise it was a hat and not some sword arrangement on her head. Her hairstyle is interesting.

Maxima is tall and slim but its not good dress for her. I don't know if its the sheen or thinness of the fabric but this dress doesn't look very good, especially on some pictures.
Hate her shoes but quite surprisingly I like her hairstyle and hat.

Me, too! I first saw photos looking at the Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor on my phone and the straw disk just blended into the background in every shot until I was about four photos in. I was trying to figure out who thought up the idea of just piling fake flowers on the very top of her head.

Maxima doesn't look happy in any of the photos I've seen, either. I like to pretend she's using her expression to say to all of us, "I know, I know, this look did NOT come together AT ALL. You win some, you lose some, and this time I lost, BIG TIME."
