Yesterday in Amsterdam, members of the Dutch Royal Family attended a national memorial for the victims of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, which crashed in eastern Ukraine in July. Queen Máxima wore a simple rounded black pillbox hat in black felt which was trimmed with a flat double bow at the back.
Designer: Fabienne Delvigne
Previously Worn: November 2, 2013
Princess Beatrix wore a round black straw hat woven with metallic threads. The indented crown of the hat was wrapped in a tall, rolled band of straw, making it look like a large-scaled bumper style chapeau.
Designer: I suspect Suzanne Moulijn
Previously Worn: I think this hat is new
Princess Margriet wore a black straw hat with flat brim that slightly raised around the back. This hat was trimmed with a slim band around the crown and a swath of light straw folds and wispy black feathers around the sides and back of the hat.
I thought all three hats were quietly dignified, yet each flattered their wearer and conveyed a bit of their personal style. My favourite was Queen Máxima’s pillbox- which one did you prefer here?
