On March 20, 2013 Queen Paola visited the provincial hotel school in Namur:

From head to hip it's a winsome combination of shades for Paola i.m.o.. The simple intensive royal blue jacket underscores her vanilla complexion and blond hair while that red part of the scarf provides a dramatic accent. I also like her figured sandy top -I would even have opted for a monochrome skirt in the same colour...

Queen Paola during a visit to the Military Hospital Queen Astrid in Neder-Over-Heembeek on April 25, 2013:

Today's outfit is just okay -certainly not one of her greatest hits, I would say… Anyhow, the greenish colour of Paola's horizontally striped jacket works especially fine with her cyan eyes (like the entire range from blue to green does), yet it neither charms by means of an appealing pattern nor a beautifully structured fabric (Her Majesty usually regales me ). And why not take along a pair of her various nice coral earrings in order to build the Italian flag ?

It is equally applicable for the Belgian flag colours : http://1.lavenircdn.net/Assets/Image..._.jpg.h600.jpg -Queen Paola as viewer at the 2014 World Cup qualification soccer match Belgium vs. Serbia on June 7, 2013.
More vibrant red for the queen on June 12 during the cress site opening in Laeken:

Paola wore this outfit e.g. in 2010 when she handed out the Prize Queen Paola for Education and I totally loved how her multicoloured skirt resembled children's paintings befitting the occasion.
On June 17 Paola attended the closing concert of the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition:

Those subtly deviant silver shades provide her combination with a certain visual animation highlighted by glittering embellishments on the jacket (which brings this ingenious looking one http://img714.imageshack.us/img714/3214/roire.jpg to my mind).

Yes, but truth be told, I prefer ruby or garnet shades on her -this flame red somehow jars with the queen's thoroughly gracile looks i.m.h.o.. Nevertheless, the geometry of Paola's outfit (symmetrical black collar, pocket and sleeve details interacting with gimp embroidery along the diagonal parting) appeals to me very much.

It is the last month for Paola as queen consort of the reigning king of the Belgians... She was present at Albert's abdication announcement on July 3, 2013:

She owns various jackets in different colours exhibiting that chic "signature" zigzag neckline whereas I recall neither her fresh looking summer dress nor the earrings.

Queen Paola during two receptions on July 8 and 10, the first look is a typical Paola choice, the second one in that soft colour is really nice and elegant:

I really love that second outfit. Beautiful color and a very classic and elegant style. Love the shoes as well.

Too much green for me and there is nothing interesting in the outfit but I must say, she sure stands out.

It would be a lovely outfit for St Patrick's Day but not too keen on Her Majesty's hat.

Green is my favourite colour, so I am pleased to see this pretty shade! The floral fabric is lovely, and the cut of the suit is good. I just don't love her accessories. The hat and purse don't match the green or each other. And the brooch, earrings, and gold bracelets and watch are all in clashing metals/stones. Oh well.

I like Paola's dress and shoes and the shade of green used is also nice. The only thing I'm not too keen on is her hat.

I'm not a fan of this outfit. I think the short jacket made her look bigger than she is.
I was hoping for a yellow outfit, like in 1993, because I think that coulour suits her well.

I know that Paola's odd figure doesn't help matters at all, but the green outfit was awful on its own right. Very unfortunate look on such an important historical occasion!

The back of the jacket above her dress was really too short .
