Queen Máxima continued her support of the “More Music in the Classroom” campaign and its ‘50days of Music’ countdown to her 50th birthday with a visit to Keukenhof Lisse on Tuesday to see a children’s music program in action.
For this event, she pulled a headpiece from her closet not seen in nearly a decade, a bandeau covered in beigey-pink silk petals that form a flower on top.
It’s a good choice for a less formal daytime event and while I’m not always a fan of head-to-toe looks in the same colour, there is enough pattern in the skirt to keep the look from feeling one-note (music pun!). That being said, I think the ensemble works better with the coat than without it. And is it me, or is the headpiece looking a little rough around the edges (literally) compared to its first outing in 2011?
Designer: Fabienne Delvigne. Blouse and skirt by Natan.

Last night, the king and queen were joined by their daughters and Princess Beatrix for a 50th birthday concert in The Hague. Máxima paired her spectacular Iris Van Herpen gown with emerald jewels including a butterfly brooch, tucked into her hair behind her left ear. Many of you will recognize the brooch from previous wearings (as a brooch!) below.
For many of us, this is our first view of the pink flower petal bandeau. What do you think?
