Red Carpet Fashion Awards


Queen Máxima of the Netherlands in Jan Taminiau was a clear favourite this week, taking 25% of the votes to be crowned (no pun intended) BDOTW.

Of all the looks she wore during the inauguration, this was the one which stood out for me, for the colour, style and that regal cape.

When it came to the fellas, we also agreed that Chris Pine was the best dressed, in his three-piece Ralph Lauren Purple Label suit.

He continues to prove that, when it comes to donning a suit, he is currently head and shoulders above the rest; this is his fourth win since the promo tour for ‘Star Trek Into the Darkness’ started.

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.

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.

Here are some more looks from the gala dinner which took place prior to the royal wedding of Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg and Stephanie de Lannoy at the Grand-ducal Palace in Luxembourg on Friday.

Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece: She looked stunning wearing a gorgeous Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture gold embroidered tulle gown. But as you know I’m not a fan of mixing metals, so the tiara works against this look for me.

Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: Returning to her best, Princess Mette-Marit of Norway looked beautiful wearing a red Emilio Pucci gown with embellished details and a flowing chiffon skirt. Everything from the accessories to the rouge lip colour works for me on this occasion. Read more…

I love all types of fashion, but Lady GaGa’s style admittedly became a little bit too crazy for my liking.

That all changed when I saw her wearing this stunning Jan Taminiau Fall 2010 Couture look whilst out in Paris yesterday.

The silk chiffon and satin crepe dress with an embellished bodice was paired with a wool crepe coat.

I’m not sure why GaGa decided to add pearls to a high neckline which is heavily embellished, but it’s a beautiful addition to her look.

Jan Taminiau’s craftsmanship and attention to detail shouldn’t only been seen in the glossy pages of editorials, so although GaGa is lacking height to really pull off this look, I love how she’s brought this look to life.
