While Kate Middleton’s style errs on the side of classic, it seems Queen Maxima of the Netherlands has a penchant for peacocking (demurely, of course). For a day trip out to the Groningen and Drenthe provinces, the recently crowned queen accompanied King Willem Alexander in a cream dress and coat ensemble decorated with eye-catching metallic detail. Naturally, she had a striking silver fascinator to match, which sat atop her prominent side-bun hairstyle.
We find ourselves keen on the excess sparkle for the daytime appearance, especially since we couldn’t imagine Middleton sporting such loud detail. This said, we look forward to seeing what’s in store for this queen’s sartorial future — the royal fashion beat is one of our favorites to cover.
Get a closer look at Maxima’s shiny style below and if you’re hoping for more royal-watching, check some of our favorite looks from mum-to-be Middleton, or meet the whole Dutch royal family at last month’s inauguration ceremony.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
