Belgian King and Queen in Hasselt

King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium continued their inauguration tour across Belgium with a visit to the province of Hasselt today. Queen Mathilde wore a new hat, a ruched toque in a subtle grey leopard print. I thought this hat framed her face in an especially pretty way and worked very well with her hairstyle. I’m not a fan of her dress but the hat worked well with it. What do you think of this new hat?

  1. Mathilde does love her prints doesn’t she? I wouldn’t have paired these two together but I think the small print on the hat reads as a solid from far away so it (sort of) works.

  2. I really like this hat. I just wish the dress had been solid white. (Cover the print part of the dress with a piece of paper or your hand and see how much better the solid white would have been. She almost always looks elegant. I’m glad she was not wearing the earrings from the last picture that was posted of her though! LOL – I’m so bad! 🙂

  3. I like the dress and I like the hat, just don’t know if I like them together. But I think Mathilde is beautiful and she always is wearing a beautiful smile.

  4. This shape is great. It seems like she ought to look Gloria Swanson-y in a hat like this, but she doesn’t. This hat also makes me love FD even more.

    Can wait for the calot/pillbox seminar!

  5. Oh, again where do they get these dresses? This is not a pretty dress on her, the hat is nice, I like the style and the color even. But why do people buy these clothes that designers make just why? Who ever made this dress needs to really look at themselves, this is one ugly dress.
