the hat is by Philip Treacy. A pity that HM didn't stick to Fabienne Delvigne of Brussels. The hat doesn't go with the outfit or with the long hair opr even with the good weather.

The gloves are awful. The dress may be nicer without the cape. Although the craftmanship of the cape is evident, the space between the cape and the buste makes it look odd.

Totally agree! I can imagine it being worn with cocktail dress but not a long gown.

You said what I was thinking. The only good part of this is the color.

The whole outfit is completely disjointed and I'm not keen on the hat, dress or gloves as individual pieces either. Her hair is also messy looking so it's a big miss for me this year.

The dress is fine except for the odd peek-a-boo cleavage--if the capelet was supposed to render this more daytime appropriate, it failed to do so, highlighting rather than veiling the low cut of the dress. The color is nice, and the gown underneath looks promising.

The hat looks like a decomposing aubergine with a bow tacked on. I suppose it might be better with an updo, and we'll probably get a chance to see that at some point in the future, but today I'm not an admirer.

Overall, not one of Maxima's better Prinsjesdag appearances.

Messy looking? Even on the windy palace balcony her hair temained nicely coiffed: https://images0.persgroep.net/rcs/FT...7f&quality=0.9

No from me re the cape and hat. Maybe the hair would have better up?

I love the colour of the outfit very much - it's beautiful and vibrant for an Autumn event.

However, I dislike the capelet and handbag, which seem too sparkly for a day-time event - a full-length cape would have been nice or just one sparkling element to it all.

I always find it hard to criticise Queen Maxima's fashion choices - she has such spectacular taste that I tend to trust her judgement most of the time!

The color on her is absolutely divine. Truly drop dead gorgeous but I do feel like a cape would have been even better. The choice of fascinator also seems a bit strange to me. The shape doesn't really go with the vibe of the dress. It's like an elevated baret, not something you'd wear with a gown

Maxima looks stunning - the colour is gorgeous on her and this is probably one of my favourite - if not, my favourite - looks on her this year.

The color is absolutely stunning on her. And while I usually prefer an updo with a formal look, her hair looks amazing.

I hate the thing on her head though. Looks so bizarre with such a formal dress.

The little shrug capelet I have mixed emotions. I actually like the sparkle and added style. But it just bothers me a bit in some photos.

Philip Treacy is a wonderful hat designer and the beret was very nice but I think it was for another event ,had queen Maxima had an updo it might have looked more effective.

This is certainly something new and different from Queen Maxima. She can carry off dramatic looks and I think she pull off this one as well. Neverless I don't quite like the way the cape sits - there's an odd space between her dress and cape, and she needs better bra. Her hair look gorgeous but I think this hat requires an updo. But that rich/deep color looks absolutely fantastic! Love it!

Those wrinkly, wide trousers...oh, no. Also too bland color for her. Usually W-A looses in comparision but this time he is the best-dressed!
