Meeting Maxima

Everyone is excited about the royals and the European royals are making big news as their styling triumphs are hitting the international magazines and websites.  The perfectly polished Queen Maxima of the Netherlands turns enough heads to make cover pages everywhere.

In October when attending a state banquet at Buckingham Palace she stunned in a blue gown complete with the Diamond Stuart Tiara worn for the first time since 1972.

Glamour is not in short supply here.  Every detail has been addressed with a knockout result.  And again, at a state banquet in Luxembourg she dazzled once more wearing the tiara and an off the shoulder gown in gold.

During the same visit, she looked just as amazing minus the tiara for an appearance at the Philharmonic in Luxembourg.

The Argentinian-born Dutch icon has a penchant for colour and features it throughout her ultra-chic wardrobe.

This stand out choice of pink is elegant and sophisticated.

Wide brimmed hats are a feature of her style and why not, when you’re blessed with such standout facial features?  On a visit to new Zealand’s War Memorial Park she combined her chic styled side-chignon with a dashing black hat achieving graceful elegance all round.

Dressed up or down, she retains a sophisticated modern look.  Pictured here with her husband, King Willem-Alexander and their three daughters Catharina-Amalia, Princess Alexia and Princess Ariane, she looks perfectly at ease in pared back style for a family photo shoot.
