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.

The 2013 Malaga Film Festival had its official closing ceremony at Teatro Cervantes in Spain on Saturday.
Juana Acosta: Probably the best-dressed star of this festival, Juana wore a gorgeous limoncello gown by Spanish designer, Lorenzo Caprile. The form-fitting gown with padded shoulders and a mermaid silhouette was styled with a Lorenzo Caprile gold clutch and Barcena jewels for a head-to-toe Spanish representative look. Glossy waves, a red lip colour and matching manicure completed her look.
Dafne Fernandez: My favourite Spanish actress kept it simple and chic, wearing an Oscar de la Renta navy gown from the Spring 2013 collection. Opting not to wear the gold-metallic belt that the dress was styled with on the runway, she instead added a gold clutch to her navy short-sleeved gown with a sheer yoke. While Dafne looks stunning, I would’ve preferred the look with the belt.
Eva Marciel: The actress also selected a bold colour, wearing a Carolina Herrera lace emerald-green one-shoulder gown styled with Jimmy Choo sandals, a gold Escada clutch and gold Tous jewels. Like Juana, she also opted for glossy waves, red lips and a red manicure.
Jaimie Alexander was your best dressed this week wearing a bright yellow Marc Bouwer gown to the ‘Iron Man 3’ premiere.
It took me a while to make my choice, but I eventually went with Tong Liya’s heavenly Valentino gown.
As for the men, the choice was much easier; Chris Pine in Ermenegildo Zegna. You also agreed that this was the best choice in menswear this week.

Demi Moore attended the Target Presents AFI’s Night at the Movies, held at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood, California on Wednesday evening.
The actress wore a Valentino jumpsuit from the Spring 2013 collection.
Her sheer georgette Valentino jumpsuit features a button-down blouse bodice, high-waisted pants with a relaxed leg, plus a contrasting white collar and cuffs. Taking inspiration from the runway, Demi styled the jumpsuit with a black lace camisole.
I have to say, this has to be one of the most unflattering looks of all time.
As gorgeous as Demi is, this look does nothing for her except make her look wider than she really is.
Our complaint to some actresses is that they should go up a size, but Demi needed to go down a size. The look is much chicer and more streamlined on the runway, so Demi’s decision to supersize her look baffles me.
Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ sandals, a black Roger Vivier clutch and Sorellina ‘Victoria Serpente’ spiral earrings completed her look.

Andy Lau and Chi-ling Lin were quite the handsome couple arriving at the closing ceremony of the 3rd Beijing International Film Festival, held at the China National Convention Center in Beijing, China, dressed in black.
Chi-ling is breathtaking wearing a Valentino black jumpsuit.
Featuring a plunging neckline and single pleated detail the look is very simple, so her beauty and effortless styling is selling this look to me.
Does this look win you over?
Tong Liya was escorted down the red carpet by her handsome guest at the China National Convention Center in Beijing, China yesterday evening, where they attended the closing ceremony of the 3rd Beijing International Film Festival.
While I am getting a distinct feeling of déjà vu when I see Liya in this Valentino Spring 2013 gown, that doesn’t stop me from being head over heels in love with this gorgeous ornate sheer tulle gown.
Her long-sleeved, buttoned-cuff, belted look features a contrast rounded collar, a contrast beaded-and-embroidered bib with tonal trim, and intricate beaded-and-embroidered embellishments throughout.
A pink lip colour, swept updo, beige Casadei pumps and complementary jewels completed her heavenly look.
