Queen Máxima of the Netherlands In Jan Taminiau – Inauguration Of King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands Water Pageant

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands In Jan Taminiau – Inauguration Of King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands Water Pageant

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima boarded the king’s boat for the water pageant to celebrate the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands after the abdication of his mother Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands in Amsterdam, Netherlands on Monday.

This event capped a day of high fashion we don’t usually see unless it’s the Oscars, Cannes or the Met Gala.

Máxima was the epitome of elegance once again, wearing yet another custom made piece by Dutch-born designer, Jan Taminiau.

She opted to add a camel cape and burgundy shawl to her burgundy-and-nude lace gown due to the backless and off-the-shoulder nature of the dress, plus counter the cold breeze from being on the boat.

Opting to go sans tiara, she did style her look with a selection of subtle dazzling jewels.

    Georgous look. I always enjoy her accessories. She has fun with fashion and I love it. Those earrings are beautiful!

  • Rebecca Z

    Spectacular! Class, chic and a warm and sunny personality. What’s not to like.

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    This woman is SO elegant–what a style star. Love this look again! Can’t wait to see more from her.

    She looks gorgeous. She technically did still sport a Tiara, or at least pieces of one, she wore the diamond stars from her wedding tiara scattered through her hair. She looked every inch the queen, all day yesterday.

  • Moxie

    From what little I can see it is a lovely dress. But it looks windy, so I can understand her wanting to cover up.

  • dee

    She looks gorgeous again.

  • Yeliz

    Loved this gown when I saw it backless, without the shawl and it looks even more elegant with the shawl. Not really liking the cape, but I’m sure she was freezing. She looks enchanting.

    Love the gown and the burgundy shawl. She looks radiant and very happy. The camel coat looks like a horse blanket, but it most certainly would have kept her warm!
