She is such a beautiful womam, but her hair is becoming more and more like Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden's for me...it's driving me crazy, it never looks truly great because it always looks so over processed!

Larzen 10-18-2004 01:23 PM

I think Maximas hair is much worse than Victorias. (which is healthy only too long and too often in a ponytail)

Her outfit is young and sort of casual and that is OK for the event she was going to, BUT the hair looks worse than ever, it doesent even look like she has brushed it and dont even get me started on those dark roots.:mad:

Her smile is a 10 as always:)

Britters 10-18-2004 02:12 PM

Larzen I completely agree...my comment about Victoria's hair only meant it annoys me because it's always in a ponytail, not that it looks unhealthy!

As for Maxima's-the dark roots give her hair the over processed looks. She needs to return to her natural hair color for a bit. Give her hair sometime to relax and grow.

Hannelore 10-18-2004 02:17 PM

the hair makes her look hideous. Doesn't she care about how she looks at all???

DKgirls 10-18-2004 03:08 PM

Maxima looks really great, we love her cothes!! The hair looks nice too, except from the colour - she should colour it again or let the dark grow out :)

lucys 10-18-2004 10:35 PM

Maxima is a lovely woman with a lovely smile, but her hair really is g-d awful and getting worse.

More substantially, now that her official introduction period is officially over (or so I understand) I look forward to seeing her activities.

Maxima's hair is looking more and more unkept at each public appearance she makes. Last week with the purple oufit where her hair was half falling out of its ponytail or whatever and this week with the wind blown hair all over the place. And her roots are very bad, very obvious.

What do you mean that her "official" introduction is now over? She's been married for several years now and has even given birth to the heir to the Dutch throne and yet she isn't "official"?

Alisa 10-20-2004 05:09 PM

Maxima has been Princess for only 2 years. I think it is save to say that her introductionary period (getting familiar with all aspects of the Dutch society) is over now after this Council of State meeting. She will be taking on alot more engagements now.

Marengo 10-20-2004 07:14 PM

correct Alisa. The goal of the introductionperiod was to get her aqcuinted with all elements in the dutch society. And learning everything about the dutch history, traditions, politics, law, economy, etc etc etc. Quite a lot professors helped her with this.
Here a picture of Maxima today, during her investure.. she looked marvelous! And I might add that the queen looks VERY elegant as well.

HRH Princess Máxima of the Netherlands made an unannounced visit to the winner of the 'Apple of Orange' 2005, the price of the Orange Fund in Zwolle


The 'Oranje Fonds' was created in 2002 when it was presented to Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima on the occasion of their wedding. They are the patrons and are also closely involved in the Fund and its area of activity. In the year it was founded, the Fund merged with the Juliana Welfare Fund, which has been active in the social sector since 1948. The Prince and Princess are actively involved in the operations and activities of the Orange Fund. They both attend the award ceremony of the Appeltjes van Oranje and indeed the Princess actually presents the prizes. Princess Máxima visits the winners personally and speaks extensively with the originators and participants.


now, the pictures from ANP :

Because her hair is covering her face, you mean? Or because she opted for a terrible pattern again for the blouse?

Another messy look for Máxima.
The outfit is old, but nice... but that hair. :eek:Looks like she didn't brush or wash it.
Sorry, but IMO she urgendly need to do something with it! Cut it, color it... whatever!

sgl 03-27-2008 10:04 PM

It looks like her hair is stuck in the back of her shirt, and it is way too messy on top. I wonder if she was out in the wind? I like her with longer hair, and I think the color is nice, but she needs a more polished style.

bertie5252003 03-28-2008 12:38 AM

I know what you mean Her Majesty but I have really come to love all that untidy look that Maxima try as she might seems to look perfect thing can't do. She does appear to urgently need top draw help with her look I completely agree but......I just can't help but think it is just part of her.... I hope I am expressin this the correct way and NOT appearing as if I objecting to your seriously appropiate observation.

GlitteringTiaras 03-28-2008 12:39 AM

Obviously, her hair stylist doesn't believe in using hair spray or a good brush, like Mason Pearson, otherwise he wouldn't let poor Maxima look like she had a really rough night with that hair. And her make-up... it's all smudged and sloppy looking.

ashelen 03-28-2008 01:12 AM

yes and on top of that her forhead wrinkles looks more deep!, she is a mess!wher is his styles perosn and make up artist?

Exagurating is a craft on its own isn't it.I bet she looks better then some here,really do,would love to see some pics of all of you and hold them next to Máxima,talking about a "climate-change"....:whistling:

GlitteringTiaras 03-28-2008 02:45 AM

Ouch! Meow. A little below the McQueen belt ain't it, Lucien? Why take ones comments/perspectives so personally? It's not you they are talking about nor does it affect you in any way shape or form. Besides, it's an opinion not a fact.

Now, on to your implied question: Well, you can count me. I already posted my image here, and yes, I am younger than Maxima (and, no, I am not a teenager.) As for her wrinkles: I don't mind them... they suit her (as I've said about a billion times.) If she ever got rid of them, well, she wouldn't be the same (obviously.) There is more to looks in life, and Maxima has proven that time and time again with not only her "work", but with her charm as well as engaging personality. Which is one of the primary issues as a Crown Princess after all, now isn't it? On the other hand, she should fire her hair stylist because this messy look is not working for her thus whispers from some royal watchers will continue.

Goodmorning gorgious!:flowers:

No,I know it's not me they talk about,but it's that general trend to critisize for critisize sake only,you know,it has head nor tail,just blabbering.
Awfull,dislike that.Suppose I skip reading this sort of threads before it adds any wrinkles to my happy appearance.....

Oh you are right,she has proved she's more then just a catwalk cat,she's the brains among her equals.Our jewel in the Crown.

:lol: Perhaps, and if you do, continue to read these sort of threads, it will. If you are constantly shocked by members comments, thus causing you to raise your eyebrows every five seconds, then go to your doctor, stat, and commit yourself to the Obagi treatment. Six weeks later your lines have vanished and you'll look eight years younger. Or, just inject 12cc's of Botox and voila! A nice frozen face devoid of lines!

On to Maxima, I believe she is the most charming princess and is a great asset to the royal family. Simply put: The people and the family are lucky to have her. But, ugh :sigh: dear god... sometimes she looks like a hot mess. I'm tempted to send her stylist a book on grooming tips as well as a Mason Pearson hairbrush and Frederic Fekkai hairspray.

:smile:

dazzling 03-28-2008 03:31 AM

Though messy hair, hardly any make-up, Maxima tends to step out in full confidence. She seemed full of energy at the event. Thanks all for the pictures.

:smile:

I second that GT, She is a very cheerful, happy person, anyone would like to have her in the family.
Her only prob she has is that she doesnt take care of her hair at all. Please include a few hair pins, maybe she can use them for good use

Hmmm, I see black heavy smudge around her eyes and burnt orange eyeshadow. It's not my taste, personally, but at least she isn't wearing pound cake foundation. Oh well.:smile:

Maxima's hair and style remains a mystery to me, at times she can outshine anybody and usually she looks like a mess, too many things going on and the hair and make-up are probably done by herself too (the Queen usually 'does' her own hair too). And she usually uses too much bronzer on her face but forgets the neck. And apart from that, the Natan clothes are becoming a bore, considering that each Benelux princess (and Grand Duchess) has worn something simular in a different shade.

Luckily for her (and us) she radiates energy and has a lot of charisma (even more so on film and in real life). She could be dressed in a paper bag and nobody would care the least. Another thing is that the wind in this country is usually very strong and that Dutch women usually prefer the hair to be a bit more 'nonchalant' than for example American women do.

---

Does anybody know more about the campaign of the Orange fund btw? A national campaign usually has people collecting money door-to-door, like the Anjerfonds of Prince Bernhard. Will there be any commercials on television and such? The Orange Fund usually is a bit more low-key so such a thing would be a big step.

Yes Maxima's hair looks a mess sometimes but for me she will always be the most admirable Crown Princess.
But for those who thinks her "deep wrinkles" are a flaw in her appearance whatever happened to growing older gracefully? What sort of message would Maxima be sending out to all those who admire her and look up to her if she got botox and face lifts to keep her "fresh faced"? It would be like saying you are only beautiful and presentable when you have a pristeen face even if it is not truly your own. What a role model she would be then :ermm:

Maxima is confident and comfortable in her own skin the way she is and that is something that IS admirable

Princess Máxima was on a surprise visit at a Orange Fund project called"Bakkie in the buurt"(Cuppa in the neighbourhood),Amsterdam-Oost.
The visitors,who really didn't have a clue on HRH visiting today,were flabbergasted and took their time to have long chats/talks with her.They were absolutely delighted to have her.Earlyer today HRH had visited the Van Harte Resto project in the north of Amsterdam.

Both projects emphasize on the social cohesion of the neighboorhoods,and are hugely successfull at that.:flowers:

Thank you for the link, Lucien. Wow! A 3-year meeting. They must be very tired and quite anxious to go home:lol:

I'm just kidding. But seriously, what is this language program? Does it promote the Dutch language in schools?

I am surprised that the security would allow a royal fan to just run up to the car like that. Is their security that relaxed, or was this woman screened beforehand?

Marengo 02-14-2009 03:31 PM

I ahve to say that the princess seemed very sweet when I saw an item of this visit on 'Blauw Bloed'. The princess was welcomed but apologised to her host that she first went to greet the public, accept flowers, give a few handshakes etc. She actually recognised some in the public, and when she left she again went to the public, shook hands, made a talk etc. The people who met her all seemed delighted, and radiated while telling about the conversation they had with the princess. Just seeing these photo's makes you forget Maxima's best quality: inter acting with anybody she meets.

I love that coat how many times has she worn it and each time I fall more in love nothing like a little fur IMO.

Princess Máxima of The netherlands today visited two projects that are sponsored by the
Orange Fund, the fund that she and her husband received as a wedding present from the Dutch people.

First the princess visited the programme ‘Aging Actively’, in the Seniors Hobby Center in Mill and St. Hubert. The programme was started two years ago tries to prevent seniors from getting lonely. Later the princess visited the foundation Boy-4-ever in the city of Venlo. This foundation brings teenagers from different cultural backgrounds together and organises activities for them.

Sigh, the hair is still atrocious. I do hope that she will do something with that soon. Mind you when I lived in the Netherlands, the wind blew my hair all to creation and back again as well, but still.

TV Limburg has a clip of the visit of Princess Máxima in Venlo: TVL - Prinses Maxima op bezoek in Blerick Apparently the event was in blerick, which is a town in the municipalty of Venlo.

The princess received a painting with eyes (among them princess Maxima's) that will be used in the office of the Orange fund.
