After her quick trip to Russia, Queen Máxima was back in Amsterdam yesterday to preside over the 2013 Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Prijs. She choose this event to showcase a new hat, another wool felt hat with sharply raised front brim. I like this hat shape but to be honest, I’m ready for a change. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am missing Máxima’s toques!
This hat was trimmed with a wide grosgrain ribbon around the crown and had a lovely, subtle wave on one side of the brim. The colour, a sublimely rich aubergine, was particularly beautiful on Máxima. I’m just not sure that the colour-blocked purple hat and teal dress (with very unattractive peplum) was a good combination. What do you think of this new grape hat? And, what do you think about seeing this style of hat on this queen, again?
