The cape seems to be adapted. The open neckline is screaming for a necklace. I always considered the dress green but considering it is paired with sapphires it may be blue? Anyway, she looks great.

I dislike the gown. I love the style but I don't like the design.

I agree i dislike dress, even more then in UK. and i definitely don't like the dress paired with the sash..I think the brooch looks to small, a bit lost with the cape..Can I say I´m dissapointed? for me she had just two great outings with Sapphire Tiara, the inauguration and the danish state visit.

I think she has just left the cape unbuttoned, and open.

Queen Maxima is obviously tall and she wears that sheer cape really well.

It's an elegant simple ombre design - but possibly suited to a more low-key event because visually it might not be up to the level of a gala state banquet. The collar looked untidy and 'negligent' as if it had accidentally fallen open. This looked unfinished and disrupted the clean lines and look of the dress. If she wanted to not wear the cape - then just leave it in the wardrobe and find some alternative embellishment or cape-substitute! Sometimes I think she tries too hard to dress up and look glamorous so that the impression is sparkling celebrity rather than representative of Dutch royal history and authority. I worry that she over-emphasises showbusiness 'attractiveness' and there is a risk the three princesses become focused on clothes instead of their constitutional destiny. (Diana made the celebrity fashion mistake a lot). The Stuart tiara was an extraordinarily powerful statement and it just worked with this same dress in London. In Oslo the combination looks a little second hand. The solution they should have aimed for was to remove the cape for some creative alternative. And Maxima should have worn a bold necklace - too much bare neck.

I do like the sheer cape, and I think it adds a degree of theatre to the dress. However, in this case, the cape was designed to be buttoned up, and leaving it open did leave the neckline of the cape looking odd.

My idea was that the Queen planned to remove the cape after seating, but by hindsight, with a window behind her and in chilly Oslo, decided to keep it around her shoulders.

The open cape actually gave a look on the magnifecent gown with the masterful colour scheme and the extensive beads worked on her bodice.

The collier was not worn, the corsage de devant was not worn, classic brooches from this set were not worn. But if she did: unsoubtedly there would have been posters naming her "Bling Bling Queen".

She made a quite polished appearance in a calm gown in autumnal colours. For so far she had only worn repeats so the label of fashion victim is not really in place here.
