Queen Máxima of the Netherlands was spotted at the Copenhagen Airport, signaling the start of her Dutch State visit to Denmark on Tuesday (March 17), where she later attended a state banquet dinner at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen. It was lovely that, on both occasions, she opted to represent both The Netherlands and Denmark with her selection of designers.
Look 1: Traveling in the most sophisticated style, she wore a gray coat by Dutch-Danish designer Claes Iversen. The slight cocoon shaping and the allover embellishment elevated the outerwear to regal proportions. A matching gray hat, gray gloves, and Christian Louboutin peep-toe heels completed the elegantly monochromatic essence of the look.
Look 2: Switching from subtle gray to standout blue, Queen Máxima stunned in her royal-blue gown from Dutch designer Jan Taminiau, accessorized with plenty of sparkle via a diamond-and-sapphire-encrusted tiara and matching sapphire earrings. Although this dress and much of the styling is a rerun from two years ago, when she wore the design with a floor-sweeping cape, it still has the power to captivate. Without the cape, more of the lace-embellished shoulder detail comes into view. However, are you equally enamoured with its repeat showing?
