Queen Maxima Of The Netherlands Visits Italy

Queen Maxima of The Netherlands has been ever so busy, as she tours throughout Italy on a royal state visit. Naturally, each stop has been accompanied by a wardrobe change, as she impressed at every turn.

Day 1 – Arrival: Upon her arrival in Rome on Tuesday (June 20), Queen Maxima set the pace for the tour in a Natan mauve-pink dress emblazoned with the romantic motif of an abstracted rose outline. The dress had me at hello when she landed, as it appropriately balanced sweet charm with elegant sophistication; the wide-brim hat only adding to the classic form.

Day 1 – State Banquet: The official state banquet called for something more formal, and this red Jan Taminiau one-shoulder gown delivered—both in colour and in silhouette, as the cape added the undeniable element of drama. But, it was the stunning Mellerio Ruby tiara, necklace, and earrings that took the look over the edge into ultimately regal and royal territory.

Queen Maxima In Jan Taminiau – King Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands Birthday Party

Queen Maxima of The Netherlands hosts a dinner to celebrate King Willem-Alexander’s 50th birthday in the Royal Palace on April 28 (Friday) in Amsterdam.

If you’re wondering why Jan Taminiau is Queen Maxima’s go-to designer, this sparkling look should answer your question. I can’t stop looking at the gold textured details and delicate flowers cascading down her gown.

This is the second time Taminiau has taken inspiration from the iconic wallpaper in the Japanese room at Huis ten Bosch Palace in The Hague. The first time was the Prinsjesdag in 2015. She’s absolutely a walking art piece.

Prince Carl Philip Of Sweden And Princess Sofia of Sweden’s Wedding Guests

Prince Carl Philip Of Sweden And Princess Sofia of Sweden's Wedding Guests

Princess Sofia of Sweden and Prince Carl Philip of Sweden welcomed guests to their wedding at The Royal Palace in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday (June 13).

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden: Escorted by husband Prince Daniel of Sweden, Princess Victoria swept onto the scene in an H&M gown from the Conscious Collection that was most magnificent for its watery, painterly hues that were well-coordinated to her regalia. A decorative Connaught tiara, worn by her for the very first time, added sparkling royal flair to the look. If the dress looks familiar, it’s because Olivia Wilde wore the skirt version at the 2015 Elle Style Awards.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway: Pretty in pink, she brought a wave of feminine, summery spirit in a Temperley London gown most notable for the vibrant orchid print that decorated the ball skirt.

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?

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.
