The Dutch State visit to Ireland continued its third and final day today with visits in Cork, Cobh and Camden Fort Meagher. For today’s program, Queen Máxima repeated her wrapped calot hat in pale beigey-pink natural fibres.
Even though we’ve not seen this design on Máxima in nearly five years, there’s not much new to say about it. The calot shape frames her face nicely and the colour of the hat matches nicely with this ensemble, but the wrapped look of the hat, which I suspect is supposed to come across as free form and artistic, is simply messy. Máxima wears saturated and jewel tones so well, this ensemble compares in comparison to countless other looks that simply suit her better. Let’s hope she’s got something spectacular in her suitcase for the Order of the Garter service on Monday.
