Queen Máxima of the Netherlands In Claes Iversen & Jan Taminiau – Denmark State Visit Arrival and Dinner

Queen Máxima of the Netherlands In Claes Iversen & Jan Taminiau  - Denmark State Visit Arrival and Dinner

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?

Best Dressed Of The Week - Queen Máxima of The Netherlands In Jan Taminiau Couture, Kiernan Shipka In Mary Katrantzou & Robert Pattinson In Alexander McQueen

Whether she upstaged the bride or dressed as she should, like a Queen, Queen Máxima of the Netherlands in Jan Taminiau Couture was your best dressed this week.

I, as always, was swept away by Kiernan Shipka in her colourful Mary Katrantzou frock, which was paired with some complementary accessories.

Rob Pattinson dressed in blue Alexander McQueen took your fancy this week, and I would have to agree as I am partial to a non-black, slim-fit suit.

Queen Máxima of The Netherlands – Jan Taminiau Couture – Juan Zorreguieta and Andrea Wolf’s Wedding

Juan Zorreguieta And Andrea Wolf Get Married in Vienna

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of The Netherlands attended Juan Zorreguieta and Andrea Wolf’s wedding held at Palais Liechtenstein on Friday (June 7) in Vienna, Austria.

The Dutch Queen, quite frankly, upstaged the bride, looking stunning wearing a breathtaking pink sweetheart-neckline Jan Taminiau Couture gown and elaborate matching cape.

Styling the look with a bag in the same hue, a silver waistband and dazzling diamonds fit for a Queen, I can imagine that all eyes were on Maxima. I know mine would’ve been.

This is a breathtaking BDOTY-worthy piece.

You may remember that Jan Taminiau created the gown she wore to the inauguration Of King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Queen Máxima of the Netherlands In Jan Taminiau & Chris Pine In Ralph Lauren Purple Label

BDOTW 6 May

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

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.
