King Willem-Alexnder and Queen Máxima of The Netherlands embarked on their first state visit since becoming king and queen with a visit to Luxembourg today. Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa greeted them with great fanfare and it looks like a jolly good time was hat by all.
The women both sported dusty pink hats by Belgian hat designer Fabienne Delvigne (making me wonder if there was some behind-the-scenes fashion coordination??). Grand Duchess Maria Teresa wore a new straw picture hat with sharply angled upturned ‘slice’ brim trimmed with a wide pink Petersham ribbon hatband in the same shade. I like Maria Teresa’s hat better from the side profile than from the front where it slightly overwhelms her.
Designer: Fabienne Delvigne
Previously Worn: This hat is new
Queen Máxima repeated was the wrapped calot she wore earlier this year on a state visit to Brunei (she originally wore it in April 2011 for William and Kate’s wedding).While I don’t like the wrapped texture of the piece, I like the shape- more than a bandeau but less than a turban. These off-the-face styles are really lovely on Máxima and is seems that she has stumbled onto a new hat trend that works very well for her. What do you think?
