Queen Máxima opened the new Fries Museum in Leeuwarden today and repeated the pale pink turban that will be familiar to most readers here. The photos today, however, give a much better side and back view of this hat than we have previously seen before. From the side, this hat is more of a calot (also known as Juliet cap) shape than a turban. I have always like this hat from the front as I think it frames Máxima’s face beautifully. I also like how it looks from the side view. But from the back? I am so disappointed. This hat makes this stylish Queen look like she has a head wound that required a lot of bandages. And any hat that makes a queen look like a mummy is not going to work for me. What do you think?
