According to modekoningin Maxima the dress with broderie d'art was designed by Jan Taminiau. It is not his usual style, I expected something embroidered, but it is a good dress to let the devant corsage shine.

I have read somewhere that Queen Juliana's problem with the full brooch was that it was too heavy and the fabric would tear apart if it was too light, so a heavier material was needed.

The cape looks nice when the queen is walking but I could have lived without it. Though as we finally the Stuart again I couldn't care less if the queen had worn a plastic bag TBH.

Not keen on either the 'cape' or Ombré effects.. a gown of far greater simplicity and severity would have shown the astonishing jewels to better advantage...

Thanks for the information!
Jan Taminiua's dress was exquisite. I am not sure about the cape though.

Wow, she looks fantastic. I like the dress, love that tiara on her. It would overpower a lot of other women but Maxima has the height and the presence to pull it off beautifully.

I had a hunch she’d go all in tonight!

Stunning gown. Love the color and style.

And can always count on Max to bring out the big gun jewels.

Queen Maxima certainly stuns in the Stuart parure; HM Queen Elizabeth's jewelry is dwarfed by her Dutch counterpart's, to the extent that the Dutch queen almost looks vulgar compared to English understatement! I wonder if Queen Elizabeth's stiff upper lip is concealing a grinding of royal teeth at the loss of the Stuart diamonds to those 'damned Dutch'

Queen Maxima looks lovely. i like her dress though I not completely sold on the sheer black portion. I need to see more pictures. She has the personality and presence to pull off the massive jewels, unlike some I could name.

I'm impressed how elegant and regal Maxima looks. Love her dress, jewellery, makeup, hairstyle. I even like that sheer cape added to the dress. Easily one of her best looks ever!

Truly a case of the lady wearing the gown, instead of vice versa-100% regal!

The Ruby Peacock was a surprise to me. I expected the Mellerio ruby instead.


As I said in other occasions, I don't like that kind of hairdo for a state dinner, but Queen Máxima seems to like styling her hair that way.
