Lovely dress and colour on queen Máxima but would prefer an updo hairstyle or tied back a bit.

I really don't like the dress, the colour is nice but I read in net a porte $7000 , wow crazy! I do not care forthis dress, though the jewellery is stunning

I have seen different prize tags, also around 2000 Euro which is 5000 Euro lower than the prize in the post above. We will never know. She is Queen Máxima, Princess of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau. She is uncomparable for anyone except her fellow royal colleagues in the reigning monarchies. We do not even know how she purchases things or which prizes are paid.

Her mother in law seldom bought labels but paid for royalties and licenses to have designs made for her by Maison Vreugdenhil in Amsterdam. Maybe that is even more expensive, as nothing was "from the rack" but because it had no label, any prize comparison was useless. That does not mean that Máxima's shopping at Natan is more expensive than Beatrix' handmade couture.

Anyway, I thought the simple dress without print, without frills but with a fabulous glittering heirloom from 1897 made a smashing impression. Mind you: it was "just" an audience to Bundespräsident Gauck and Frau Schadt, no State Banquet.

Maxima at a dinner tonight

after all that color during the day, this suit works perfectly ;)
dont like the shoes though

AdmirerUS 02-07-2017 07:32 PM

I agree. I love a good ladies' tux look. But shoes with this little leather at this time of year make my skin crawl.

Máxima has worn that black suit before in 2015 :flowers:

Summer shoes (sice 43 ) in February ! Not nice at all.
I am sure Duc will not agree as usual !

The heels are lovely especially with that suit. I liked her hairstyle, simple yet bouncy.

Duc_et_Pair 02-08-2017 12:02 PM

To me all ladies' shoes look the same. Summer shoes in my vocabulaire are flip-flops, espadrilles, sandals. No idea if these shoes with high heels worn at an evening event qualify as "summer shoes" ;-) She looked waaaaaay better than at the arrival, a couple of hours earlier.

Queen Máxima's Eveningwear Part 4: April 2016 -
Her hair is styled beautifully. I'm not a big fan of the dress though.

Countessmeout 02-08-2017 11:17 PM

I love her suit last night. Really stylish. Accessories and hair were great :flowers:

Tonight's dress is not my favorite but she looks lovely. I love the cape. Again her hair looks great. She has rocked the loose curls in the past week.

The black suit is amazing. Its very elegant.

Duke of Marmalade 02-09-2017 01:03 AM

I will never understand why women wear peeptoe shoes in winter combined with a black tights. It looks horrible.

iceflower 02-09-2017 03:10 AM


It's her Nina Ricci dress she wore last night:

** January 2016 **

bertie5252003 02-09-2017 10:42 AM

Love the pants and jacket but the dress I am not crazy about...

carlota 02-09-2017 12:01 PM

oh! this dress reminds me so much of letizia's nina ricci dress! i liked the statement of that dress and i like this one too - maxima's specially has the talent of being subdued, as it is mainly black whilst adding a bit of sparkle and interest in the different colouring you get from the sequins. i can imagine it must be really striking to see in person, as maxima would almost look as if she is 'gleaming' as she moves around. love!

Mademoiselle Lilo 02-09-2017 03:59 PM

i think she looks lovely in black her tights though isn't something i prefer to see on elegant ladies.

Frelinghighness 02-09-2017 09:29 PM

Wonderful dress, terrific styled hair, but the thick black tights worn with the peep.toed shoes,are such a no no. If you must wear colored tights, just a tinge, closer to sheer.
