Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, now is the perfect time to
speculate what Maxima will wear as she becomes the Queen of The Netherlands.
April 29th there will be a dinner given by the Queen (Beatrix), it’s
unknown if it will be a white tie affair or black tie, but for sure it’ll
On April 30th, the abdication and
inauguration will take place in the palace and the parliament, Maxima is
expected to wear a full length dress with a tiara or some serious head
jewel, it’s a morning event so nothing too flashy, too embroidered, or
By the after noon of the same day there will
be a reception for royal and foreign missions and dignitaries (We will
discuss who’s going from our royals tomorrow).
And at night there will be a water pageant and a dinner hosted by the prime minister.
So 4 outings with at least three outfits, and there are five designers to be guessed:
designed Maxima’s wedding gown and many other night gowns for her,
Maxima has also worn daydresses and suits from the ready to wear line.
there are some dresses from the latest three Couture collections, It’s a
great possibility that Max will wear white just like Beatrix did, but
maybe she’ll wear red or blue which are the other two colours of the
Dutch flag, While the red gown is way too shiny for a day event, it’s Maxima
after all so we never really know, I like the powder pink one on the
left, it’s chic and elegant but without being overwhelming, Sheikha Mozah has it in blue.
a huge possibility, NATAN costum makes most of their pieces (Still they
wouldn’t fit well) so we can expect many stuff from them and Maxima,
below two of my favorite looks that NATAN has designed for Maxima, both
were worn to the Prinsjesdag which happens during the day too, the one
on the right was then reworn with a tiara for a tiara affair.
|Princess Maxima wearing Benito Fernandez|
And just if you think you should not put your money on Benito, let me tell you this.
|Will Princess Maxima wear this Benito Fernandez dress to the dinner?|
visited Benito’s atelier earlier this month and he showed her this gown
saying that they were just about to send it to Princess Maxima, I’m
assuming that Max might wear this dress on April 29th dinner just before
she becomes a queen the next day, or maybe she’ll wear it some time
later, but not for the inauguration.
dress is embroidered on the shoulders, the waist and the skirt, while
the top part has a leopard print with ruffles at the end of the skirt (at least there are no feathers).
and I can honestly say I don’t like it but I will wait to see Max
wearing (or not wearing) it to decide.
and Max has worn him once in 2008 for the Prinsjesdag, his designs are
more of boho and less of princessy, but still he can make anything for
his country’s new queen!
Maxima wore BLUE, so the majority was wrong :P
