On Tuesday, regular commenter Jake, who hails from Washington DC, USA, shared five hats he’d like to see Queen Máxima repeat. I’m so pleased to welcome him back for the second part of this post, picking right up with his final five choices. Welcome again, Jake!
6.This white and green accented picture hat from the 3 November 2009 visit to Mexico; this whole look was repeated in Vietnam, and possibly altered (RIP green!) for a trip to Curacao in November 2013.
7. The vivacious (and divisive) hat from Pieter-Christiaan & Anita’s wedding on 27 August 2005. I know many of you hate it, but I adore it! Designed by Fabienne Delvigne
8. This silver picture hat from the 13 April 2011 visit to Germany. While looking for photos of this fun hat, I discovered it was actually first worn at ship launching in 2003! (see bottom right photo). Designed by Fabienne Delvigne
9. The 2012 Prinsjesdag fuchsia slice hat. One of the few slice hats not to be repeated, but it definitely needs to make a comeback this fall/winter! Designed by Fabienne Delvigne
10.This pink cocktail hat from the 19 November 2013 visit to Curacao (this is also the only repeat I chose from her queen days). Sandra’s picks included many cocktail hats; while Máxima has worn this shape in the past on multiple occasions, I’ve not found them to be very successful because the details end up being wrong; but this particular cocktail hat got it right, and she should definitely add this style to the rotation more often.
What do you think? Do you miss some of Máxima’s more crazy hats from her crown princess days? Let me know!
