Queen Máxima Attends Sustainability Award

Queen Máxima attended the tenth “Postcode Lottery Green Challenge” international competition for sustainable entrepreneurship in Amsterdam yesterday. For this occasion, she repeated one of her go-to hats with upswept ‘slice’ brim.

In coffee coloured straw, this hat will be familiar to most of you- it features a rounded crown and is simply trimmed with a matching grosgrain ribbon hatband and abstract folded ribbon bow at the side. While the design is not one of Máxima’s standouts in terms of colour or shape, it is a great piece that paired exceptionally with her white Gucci dress, warm brown accessories and citrine earrings.The resulting ensemble is one of my favourite for her so far this year.

  1. This is another of those interesting colour schemes that Maxima regularly explores, when she chooses accessories to frame a simple frock – and the result here is a knockout. The plain white dress is an inspired complement to the textured expanse of this lovely hat — as well as demonstrating (with the exception of the too-short sleeves, which need to be about 2″ longer to show off Maxima’s figure to perfection), precisely why couture matters. Fabulous!

  2. It looks like the brim height was lowered a little in the front. At any rate, Máxima looks absolutely fabulous here, and I love this hat and dress combo! I would also like to see this done again, but with different colored accessories, like cobalt blue pumps, just to give a fun contrast.

  3. I’m surprised at how well the coffee hat goes with the white dress. I agree that this is the best appearance so far for this hat.

  4. I think this is a great look for her, and as much as I love the hat, I really love the dress. Have it made in several colors and wear them all year long!

    • This dress is excellent. I think Maxima usually wears designs from one designer and that designer’s style does not always suit her. And let’s face it some of that designer’s work is questionable. When she wears Valentino and now Gucci it is much much better. And when the dress fits and looks great, the hat always looks better too.

  5. She looks amazing! Those citrines though…wow! Love the hat. My only quibble is: are her shoes suede? In my part of the world, suede is for fall/winter, and as such would never be worn with white or straw.
