Day 2 of Dutch State Visit To Italy

King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima continued their state visit to Italy in Palermo today. Queen Máxima remained glamorously cool, even amidst sweltering temperatures, in her natural straw hat with gigantic brim. The brim on this hat looks to be a flexible one with Máxima playing with its placement on nearly every outing it has hat. Today it was as formally placed as it can be- low on one side and curved up into an upswept shape on the other. It’s effortless chic at its best.

  1. Máxima looks quintessentially old school Italian classic in this outfit and hat! Perfect for the sun and heat in southern Italy this time of year.

    You can tell it’s hot because even Willem-Alexander ditched his black and navy suits for something in grey!

  2. SO GLAM. I love QM so much for her giant hats, gorgeous tan, and megawatt smile. I also love how much she and KA love each other, and it shows easily in photos.

  3. Despite the big hat, “sleek” is the only word that comes to mind for this appearance. She looks perfectly Queenly and yet perfectly able to deal with the heat.

  4. Once again, Max excels with her working uniform. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if she had an Ascot appearance? Think of what she might come up with!

  5. Queen Maxima looks fabulous. The combination of casual summer white outfit with natural straw sun hat is perfect. I love how she’s arranged the brim.

  6. Love love love this look! She looks so elegant and she makes it look so easy. I love these big hats and she wears them so well. As always, I want her jewelry.

  7. That hat! it looks perfect from every angle. Queen Max is such a great champion of the wide brimmed hat. And gloves. I love that she always wears them on state visits, no matter how hot it gets.

  8. Beautiful outfit, JAR earrings, but I’m puzzled by leather gloves in this heat? Indeed, W-A needs to embrace the chic linen suit

  9. Fabulous. She looks so glamorous in the heat. Poor W-A on the other hand must be sweltering – he needs to do a Prince Charles and embrace the lightweight summer suit!

  10. I have no idea if reincarnation exists, but if it does, I want to come back as QM. Perfect dressing for a hot day, simple but elegant.
