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.
