Maxima glitters in gold

State Dinner in Honor Of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and Queen Maxima At Elysee Palace

Love her hair, makeup and earrings.

Beautiful print but not the right fit. I love her hairstyle and earrings though.

I love Maxima's great smile and general exuberance! Her hair and jewels and smile are lovely. But, if the dress doesn't fit well and the fabric is a bit odd, then it must be Natan! Why does anyone wear clothes from a "designer" who does not know the basics of proper fit?

Who else but Natan designs a dress that doesn't fit well, looks cheap. I also think her makeup is a bit too dramatic even for our Max...

I'm in the minority but I am really a fan of this look. Max looks absolutely stunning, incl the dress.

I thought Maxima looked really nice. At first I was not sure about the dress but after seeing a few different views, she looks great. I really liked her hair opened, it was styled well.

She looked absolutely radiantly. I love her makeup and her hairdo. I'm usually not a fan of dress with such pompous design but she pulled that off.

this appearance of maxima just doesn't work for me. the hair is disastrous, and so is the dress. the top part fits great, but the pattern in the skirt is... plain ugly.
being in the city known for couture and great fashion, i was expecting more of maxima.
besides, the petit palais is one of my favourite places in paris, so it would have been perfect to see maxima in a ravishing dress like any of these:

this beautiful dress she wore for prinsjesdag 2015

this grecian inspired gown

this blue cobalt dress

this clean pearly white dress

this pretty valentino she wore on a number of times

this glittery and elegant white and silver dress

this show stopping green gown

she has such a great collection to choose from...

It is weird: the royal couple made a visit to the city which invented style and glamour.... The Dutch tried their best. The dresses, the jewels, the choice of the magnificent Petit Palais, the footmen with torchlights, the flower arrangements inside. It is the total image, not only the dresses of the Queen as a separate item.

Given the remarkably low-key attitude the French showed (also towards the visiting royals from Spain, Belgium and Sweden), the Dutch couple at least tried to bring some glamour to Paris, how strange this might sound...

Queen Máxima looked abfab in the video. The harsh flashlight in the dark Paris evening did no justice to her hairdo and make-up as I saw it on television.

I must say that the still images of Queen Maxima's dress and hairstyle do not do it all justice - the video posted on the other thread show the dress and over all look much better.

Yikes! I don't like hair or the dress. It's too much. The pattern is an eyesore and the bright colors in the pattern bring attention to that.
