You mean the same she wore at the enthronement ceremony ? I don’t think so.

Elegant as the dress was, I thought it was very ageing on Mathilde. Perhaps I might have a different view if I saw better pictures.

Matilde always looks regal. I like both the evening dresses, in Japan and in Luxemburgo.

That happens a lot to Mathilde. She is only 46, which is not an old age by current longevity standards, but she often wears clothes that make her look older. In fact, she already did that when she was in her 3Os and very young looking.

Lovely dress, Mathilde looks very regal in it. About the color I’m undecided, on one hand it makes her look older IMO, on the other hand it looks quite elegant. Though I am a bit disappointed in not seeing a necklace or a brooch.

Yes, it is disappointing and a little sad that Mathilde doesn’t wear even the little jewelry she has, but then again , we never know which items she actually owns and which ones are loans.

I understand the Belgians have this concept of a frugal, scaled-down monarchy , but Mathilde’s minimal collection is barely enough to maintain the royal dignity.

Queen Mathilde is the best dressed queen tonight but the colour makes Mathilde look a little washed out.

I don’t quite like what she’s wearing. Lovely colour though.

I don't like that shade of gold on Mathilde. The cut is fine, and she looks appropriate, but I much preferred her daytime look.

It looks appropriate but it is not spectacular on her. The model is something I could imagine being worn by Queens several decades older than Mathilde.

To me the most important thing is that Queen Mathilde is dressed appropriately for the occasion and in a way that she feels comfortable with. As you say, she has never dressed what's considered youthful and I find it quite liberating to see a woman who doesn't try to dress younger. She's a beautiful lady and has definite grand dame potential.

I think tonight's gown is very regal and appropriate for the occassion - a deeper gold may have made it stand out a little more.

Pretty dress but a bit hiring. Still very regal.

Best dressed European queen. But Jetsun takes award not only for queen but in general tonight.

Her hair and jewels are perfect. The dress is nice but I don’t like the lacy scalloped edges how they are placed. It emphasizes her mid section in a bad way. If the little train that the material makes could start lower or in the back, it would be more flattering
