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

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands In Jan Taminiau - Inauguration Of King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands

As with any royal occasion, the festivities are not just limited to one occasion.

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands was at Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam this afternoon for the royal inauguration of her husband, King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands.

Donning my favourite colour, electric-blue, the newly crowned Queen was hypnotic, wearing a custom royal-blue Jan Taminiau gown.

Her floor-sweeping gown with delicate lace-embellished panels on the bodice and skirt was styled with a matching floor-sweeping cape à la Gwyneth Paltrow’s 2012 Tom Ford Oscar gown.

Opting to keep her hair styled in the same chic chignon from the morning’s festivities, she added a stunning diamond-and-sapphire-encrusted tiara, matching drop earrings and a brooch to her look, all of which once belonged to Queen Emma of the Netherlands.

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands In Natan – Royal Investiture

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands In Natan - Royal Investiture

Earlier today at 10:07, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands abdicated, making her son Willem-Alexander King of the Netherlands and his wife Máxima Queen of the Netherlands.

Following her bold red gown from the night before, Máxima looked stunning once again wearing a custom Natan ensemble (you may remember that she wore the Brussels designer to the Luxembourg royal wedding last year).

Her blush-coloured knee-length dress featured puffy sleeves, an exaggerated bow detail on the shoulder and a semi-sheer skirt with silver cascading sequins.

A chic chignon, flawless makeup and diamond jewels completed the look.

Princess Máxima of the Netherlands In Valentino Couture – Queen Beatrix Of The Netherlands Abdication State Dinner

Princess Máxima of the Netherlands In Valentino - Queen Beatrix Of The Netherlands Abdication State Dinner

Princess Máxima of the Netherlands was joined by Crown Prince Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands on the red carpet at Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam yesterday evening for a dinner party hosted by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands.

The couple will be crowned King and Queen today and the Queen who will abdicate the throne, so this was also her formal farewell dinner.

The future queen saw out her last night as princess with a bang, wearing a head-turning Valentino Fall 2006 Couture red strapless gown with tiered ruffles and an embellished waist.

If this was a celebrity, I would be tempted to say she overdid it with the jewels, but Máxima’s diamond tiara, diamond necklace and bracelet are quite spectacular.

A red scarf, a red satin clutch and cascading curls completed the look.

Like all modern-day princesses, Máxima’s beautiful look is a re-run. She wore this gown to Prince Charles’s 60th birthday dinner back in 2008.

Monaco Royal Wedding Guests

Naomi Campbell wore a one shoulder Alexander McQueen ombre floral embroidered dress to the Royal Wedding of Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess Charlene of Monaco at the Prince’s Palace of Monaco.

She accessorized with an matching fringed shawl, an Alexander McQueen skull clutch and a peach coloured fascinator.

I was starting to tire of seeing fascinators as we’ve had an overload of them since the British royal wedding, but I love how this one complements the floral embroidered and the bottom half of her McQueen gown.
