Lovely dress and colour on queen Máxima but would prefer an updo hairstyle or tied back a bit.

I have seen different prize tags, also around 2000 Euro which is 5000 Euro lower than the prize in the post above. We will never know. She is Queen Máxima, Princess of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau. She is uncomparable for anyone except her fellow royal colleagues in the reigning monarchies. We do not even know how she purchases things or which prizes are paid.

Her mother in law seldom bought labels but paid for royalties and licenses to have designs made for her by Maison Vreugdenhil in Amsterdam. Maybe that is even more expensive, as nothing was "from the rack" but because it had no label, any prize comparison was useless. That does not mean that Máxima's shopping at Natan is more expensive than Beatrix' handmade couture.

Anyway, I thought the simple dress without print, without frills but with a fabulous glittering heirloom from 1897 made a smashing impression. Mind you: it was "just" an audience to Bundespräsident Gauck and Frau Schadt, no State Banquet.

I agree. I love a good ladies' tux look. But shoes with this little leather at this time of year make my skin crawl.

The heels are lovely especially with that suit. I liked her hairstyle, simple yet bouncy.

To me all ladies' shoes look the same. Summer shoes in my vocabulaire are flip-flops, espadrilles, sandals. No idea if these shoes with high heels worn at an evening event qualify as "summer shoes" ;-) She looked waaaaaay better than at the arrival, a couple of hours earlier.

Queen Máxima's Eveningwear Part 4: April 2016 -

Her hair is styled beautifully. I'm not a big fan of the dress though.

I love her suit last night. Really stylish. Accessories and hair were great

Tonight's dress is not my favorite but she looks lovely. I love the cape. Again her hair looks great. She has rocked the loose curls in the past week.

I will never understand why women wear peeptoe shoes in winter combined with a black tights. It looks horrible.

oh! this dress reminds me so much of letizia's nina ricci dress! i liked the statement of that dress and i like this one too - maxima's specially has the talent of being subdued, as it is mainly black whilst adding a bit of sparkle and interest in the different colouring you get from the sequins. i can imagine it must be really striking to see in person, as maxima would almost look as if she is 'gleaming' as she moves around. love!

Wonderful dress, terrific styled hair, but the thick black tights worn with the peep.toed shoes,are such a no no. If you must wear colored tights, just a tinge, closer to sheer.
