The G20 being hosted in Argenrina probably scored her the invite. It was probably even (partly) because of her that the Netherlands got an invite at all as the host is allowed to invite 1 or 2 adfitional countries and while the Netherlands is the world's 17th economy, it is not one of the members (nor is it a permanent invitee like Spain as the world's 14th economy and non-member) but relations with Argentina are good thanks to our queen.

Both the prime minister and the minister of finance are attending the G20 gatherings (and/or side meetings).

The dress worn by Queen Máxima at the G20 Gala Dinner was her best look so far this week and the colour looked very lovely on the queen.

This dress from Maxima is gorgeous; I love the yellow colour. It's cheery during the rather dull winter weather (though I can imagine it's not dull in Argentina).

Its a nice enough gown but a updo hairstyle would have been better given it was a State Banquet and no order on the queen again?

Definitely suits and up-do this dress, especially with a tiara. Even with the tiara her hair loose makes it look very casual.

The dress is an odd colour for me, plus the baggy top, tight middle and then loose skirt doesn't seem to fit right.

The top wasn't baggy at the previous occasions. Perhaps weight of the brooch is pulling the fabric down?

The dress is still great. The hair remains a problem on it's third outing.

Yes, I wonder what is going on with the loose hair and no orders for Máxima at State Banquets. It is already the second time in a row.



Especially regarding no orders, is that a new rule ? Máxima wore orders though at the outgoing UK state visit. I'm confused !

Thanks, I hadn't seen that before.


It is still odd though. The badge of an order without a sash would normally be worn on a necklace for men (as the King appears to be wearing) and attached to a ribbon bow for women. A star only would be normally worn on the torso, not on the hip (as the star of the Order of Isabella the Catholic that Princess Anne wore on the incoming Spanish state visit to the UK).



Does anybody have any knowledge of Cape Verdian decorations ?


EDIT: Looking closer again, it appears that the Queen is wearing something similar to a badge attached to a plain ribbon, but she oddly placed it on her hip. Could it be a medal perhaps rather than a full order insignia ?

I love the color and style, but fit is off.

But she needs a proper updo. The loose hair doesn't work with a tiara, or the gown either.

The dress is very lovely but the hair isn't well styled and ruined it all i am afraid.
