Queen Máxima Wows on German Tour

The King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands have begun a two-day working visit to the German states of Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia. This visit, which is focused on industry, energy and trade, kicked off today in Lower Saxony at the Oldenburg University. Queen Máxima repeated a wonderful hat we have not seen in a long time, this giant black and white picture hat with squared crown and mushroom brim. I adore this hat because it is such a classic shape and colour scheme yet is oozing drama and presence. I think this is Máxima at her millinery best.

This glorious piece of millinery has been hiding in Máxima’s closet for over eight years and I am so happy that she brought it out today. I also cannot wait to hear what you, dear readers, think of this hat!

Designer: unconfirmed. I strongly suspect it is Fabienne Delvigne

  1. Sorry I’m late posting this but it IS a Fabienne D. hat. Mathilde had one exactly like it but on a smaller scale.

  2. Here again, Queen Máxima looks very good for travels abroad. If only she was dressing so elegant when she is at home!

  3. Now This is one stunning outfit from head to toe!! One just cannot top the smartness of black and white in my opinion. The pearls just add to the perfection and the hat is beautiful. This is how a queen should dress.

  4. One of my favorite Max hats! It looks even better with this dress than it did the last two outfits she wore it with. Perfection!

  5. Maxima has transformed from a Princess of The Netherlands to the Queen of the Netherlands with grace & regal perfectly!!! In my own opinion, today would have been the best appearance for the hat, hair checked, outfit checked & bling bling of jewels checked, everything is just perfect for a young Queen!!! She is seriously blossoming & on strike lately!

  6. On this website (Dutch, it’s an amazing website for fashion information for Queen Máxima) is that the hat is Fabienne Delvigne.
    I love this hat, she looks amazing and very, very elegant!

  7. The white rim is also translucent so her face is not completely in the shadow, as could happen with such a large hat.
