Princess Charlene's Fashion

The Royal Thumbs Up: Favorite Looks from King Willem-Alexander Investiture!

With Netherlands and the world greeting the new Dutch monarch, King Willem-Alexander and his wife, Queen Maxima, it's time for me to greet some of the royal guests with some thumbs up, there's no thumbs down today since I didn't hate anyone's look. Also, since I haven't slept for more than 3 hours in the past two days like most of those too-excited-for-the-inauguration pals, this post will have only my very favorite looks.

Princess Mette-Marit of Norway
In Valentino


What a difference a day can make! Princess Mette-Marit wore a very delicate costum made Valentino gown, the gown is the long version of this Fall 2013 Ready to Wear dress, Mette-Marit didn't wear a hat, instead she wore a head-thing (can't really find a name for it) with crystals and flower (made of crystals), the clutch is Valentino too, MM followed the trend of white pumps. I like it so much that I forgot yesterday's disaster.... Okay, maybe not that much...




Princess Letizia of Asturias
In Felipe Varela


Letizia continued to dazzle, although this Felipe Varela gown might look similar to yesterday's, it's gorgeous, the embroidery, the cut, the colour, everything was perfect!

The dress is made of silk and tulle titanium, embroidered with steel and crystal microbeads, Leti paired it with suede sandals and hematite clutch, both from Magrit. And while many thought that the hat was from Felipe Treacy, it wasn't. It was by María Nieto (first time to hear of her too)!





Princess Mathilde of Belgium
In NATAN


Princess Mathilde kicked it out of the park again during the celebrations, Mathilde wore a long silk crepe dress in cyclamen pink with a draped asymmetrical neck and a flared sheath effect on the arm, Mathilde paired it with the Fabienne Delvigne hat we talked about yesterday.


 I mainly love the hair and the make up more than anything, followed by the hat, Who doesn't love a large hat? As for the dress, it reminds me of one of Maxima's, but I prefer this colour.




Princess Mary of Denmark
In Charlotte Lynggaard




Yes, Princess Mary wore a Kimono, and Yes, I like it. Although I find the neckline quite too deep, and although the sleeves remind me of the Beulah London red dress that Kate wore and I hated, I like that and I like that she went for something new, would have loved it more if she had picked different shoes. Note: Her Bottega Veneta clutch is still with her.





Princess Masako of Japan



Only Princess Masako can wear an old dress that wasn't ironed well and still make it to my favorites, Because it's so nice to see her in a major event like this. Lovin' her brooch, too.






The Duchess of Cornwall
In Bruce Oldfield



I love the colour, her Philip Treacy hat and the fact that he chest is in its place.



Princess Victoria of Sweden
In Escada




Victoria brought the glam she was missing yesterday with this shiny gown which she paired with a Jimmy Choo clutch and a hat that looks like the Philips Treacy Zara Philips wore for thr wedding of Prince William which took place today 2 years ago!

Update: Philip Treacy confirmed that Princess Victoria was wearing one of his hats, and Escada confirmed to be the house behind the gown.


Princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau
in Viktor and Rolf



Princess Mabel wore an amazing outfit by Viktor and Rolf in black with a white sleeve with a big bow (keep the bows coming girl).



her outfit was cheerful although it's in black and she was in a less than a happy mood.





Sheikha Mozah of Qatar
In Valentino Couture



You can always trust Mozah to bring some Haute Couture, I like how satin is mixed with chiffon and I like that more women are wearing capes now. However, what I really like about this outfit is the huge necklace and earrings, they transfer the outfit from the -_- side to the 0_0 side, the coloured stones in them provides some needed colour too, and I like the brooch on the bag.



Princess Lalla Salma of Morocco
In a Caftan

 
When you invite Lalla Salma to your royal event, you sign up for having some serious embroidered traditional couture mixed with a new set of jewels (always) and paired with some fierce shoes from a western designer, in this case it's Louboutin, and I love the colour of the velvet caftan. Lalla Salma might be wearing caftans to all these kinds of events but she's always bringing something new in them.

The Royal Thumbs Up: Queen Beatrix Pre-Abdication Dinner!

Okay, with no introductions, tonight absolutely deserves some thumbs up, and only one thumb down!



Best in Queen
 Queen Beatrix


Beatrix stayed true to herself in the last dinner she hosted as queen, I love that she wore the Wurttemberg pearl tiara she also wore the shorter version of Queen Sophie brooch with pearl pendants, simple but says Queen clearly!


Best in Queen of Diamonds
Princess Maxima


Crown Princess Maxima (probably the last time to say it like that) chose to repeat an old Valentino gown, the red tiered silk organza gown is embroidered on the waist, I was quite disappointed that she chose to recycle an old dress, but I'd take this over the Benito Fernandez gown we discussed few days ago, specially as the designer was posing next to it for many magazines and I thought it was the IT gown!


Max brought the glam with Rose Cut Tiara, few bracelets, rings, and the Diamond Reviere with the pendant that made many people think it was from the Stuart Tiara while it was actually taken from a brooch that belonged to Queen Emma. Maxima's hairdo and makeup made her look more refined than ever!


 Best in Sister
Princess Christina and Princess Irene


Princess Christina and Princess Irene will there to celebrate their sister, Princess Margriet was there too, but I couldn't find a good picture of her. Princess Christina wore the Ears of Wheat tiara while Irene wore the Antique Pearl Tiara.



Best in Alone
 Princess Mabel


Prince Albert was alone because Charlene is in South Africa for her foundation (As we discussed here days ago), Princess Mabel was alone because her husband, Prince Friso is still in coma in a hospital in London, and that's why she deserves this thumbs up, even with her horrible dress. She's wearing the small setting of the Mellerio Sapphire Tiara, the same she wore for her wedding, and the fishnet diamond necklace.




Best in Blue
Princess Laurentien

Right to left: Princess Stephanie, Elie Saab pre-fall 2012 dress, Princess Laurentien, Princess Sarvath, Princess Sarah of Brunei.

Stephanie is wearing Elie Saab.... Stephanie is wearing Elie Saab in a bright colour... Stephanie is smiling.... Stephanie still looks dowdy! She's wearing the Nassau Tiara for the first time and a necklace that hasn't been seen before, from her family?

Princess Stephanie wearing the Nassau Tiara and an unknown necklace

Princess Laurentin looked surprisingly good in a mint blue gown, I really like it and I like the neckline with the big Stuart brooch in its smaller setting with an aquamarine pendant that echoed perfectly the Aquamarine tiara, for the first time, bravo Laurentin.

Stuart brooch with an aquamarine pendant


Princess sarvath wore a nice sari and one of her two tiaras, while Princess Sarah of Brunei wore a dress with a weird colour combination. Naturally, I like it. And that Tiara is so beautiful, it just needs hair!

Left to right: Crown Princesses Mathilde of Belgium, Mary of Denmark and Sophie of Liechtenstein.

Princess Mathilde looked gorgeous in her cream/off white gown, most probably by NATAN, the gown has a spectacular train, the whole design gives me a Déjà vu as it reminds me of Grace Kelly's Oscars dress! Mathilde accessorized her gown with her one and only tiara, and a brooch borrowed from Queen Fabiola, she wore the same brooch for Prince Guillaume and Stephanie's wedding last year.

Princess Mary wore a magnificent beige/baby pink gown with grey embroidery. This dress is going to be one of my absolute favorites of hers! So far we don't know the designer, but below an Elie Saab gown in a similar style.

Gown with Beaded Illusion Lace & Leather Belt 

The gown also resembles many of Elie's couture designs, so it's either a RTW costum made piece or a couture piece (unlikely) or a very clever knock off, anyways, She looks FAB with her wedding tiara and wedding earrings. P.S: Have you noticed her Bottega Venetta Knot clutch? 

Update: It's by Birgit Hallstein.


Crown Princess Sophie wore a nice dress in gold and cream, I love the pleats of the skirts, and the lace/embroidery style on the bodice gives a 60's flair. She wore the Hapsburg Fringe Tiara, one of the best fringes if you ask me.


Best in Black
Princess Letizia

Left to right: Princess Letizia of Asturias (Crown Princess of Spain) and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall

Camilla wore a Bruce Oldfield gown, the patchwork on the bodice is exquisite. However, it many pictures it looks so unflattering with the two part connected at the middle of her breasts. Camilla looked so royal with the Boucheron Honeycomb Tiara and diamond earrings.

Letizia WOWed in her Felipe Varela gown, although it's black, it highlighted Letizia's statuesque figure, the embroidery kept it glamorous, while the lace made sure it's still delicate and feminine as it should be, the lace also suited the Mellerio Floral Tiara perfectly.


Best in Purple
Princess Victoria

Prince Daniel, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Crown Prince Naruhito of Japan

Princess Victoria repeated an Elie Saab gown, she paired it with the Amethyst Demi-Parure, placing the brooch in the middle of the flower. Although she looks really great, I still feel like it's not grand enough!


Best in New Tiara
Princess Lalla Salma


Princess Lalla Salma of Morocco looked AMAZING in her caftan, this caftan is kind of lighter than her usual caftans, no extensive embroideries in sight, but instead, some delicate flowers are placed making it look airy and fluffy, this caftan might be by either a local couturier or Valentino!

Lalla Salma wore a tiara for the first time since her wedding, which comes as a huge surprise, although the tiara itself isn't that pretty, but not bad for a start, no? Lalla Salma wore matching earrings. I love her hair, what do you think about it?


Worst for The Night
Princess Mette-Marit


Sadly, Mette-Marit gets the thumbs down for today because while I really love the light, delicate colours of her Giambattista Valli gown and like how she wore that light blue bracelet for some color pop, I really hate how it fits her, MM seems to be dealing with some difficulties regarding her shape these days, and while dressing in something flowy like that might hide what you want to hide, adding a belt to exactly the place you wanna hide ruins it all, and make you look like you're wearing a curtain! and empire waisted dress might have been more thoughtful. Something else I dislike is that she wore her go-to tiara, The diamond Daisy which is more like a small bandeau. It's the night of an inauguration, is this how grand you want to look in photos in 50 years from now? in a tiny tiara?



Anyway it was a lovely night with lots of bling (Maxima's alone is dazzling enough!), tomorrow is the big day with the abdication and investiture ceremonies and we do have an idea about who will wear what, check it out here if you still don't!

Investiture Special: Princess Maxima to Wear NATAN Tomorrow, Plus Arriving Guests and What They'll Wear

With only one day to the inauguration and merely an hour to the first event of the festivities in The Netherlands, I though I'd share these final small bits of information.

Firstly, it's been confirmed that Princess Maxima will wear on of The House of NATAN designs, however, what I was told didn't specify whether it'll be the outfit for the abdication, inauguration or the dinner following them. But there might be two outfits by NATAN as I was told that she will be confirmed for the evening tomorrow, so maybe she hasn't decided which evening dress to go for yet!

The to-be Princess of Orange, Amalia Catharina and her two sister, Princesses Ariane and Alexia will be wearing NATAN as well.

Joining the NATAN parade will be Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands and Princess Mathilde of Belgium.

Fabienne Delvigne confirmed ladies who will be wearing her hats, and by the colours of their hats we can guess the colours of their outfits!

Princess Laurentien will wear a wear a red hat trimmed in perforated material veil, she'll also carry a pouch (Clutch also by Fabienne) in the same colour to compliment her outfit.

Princess Mathilde will wear a large capeline hat in panama Pink (or so I understood from the French).


Felipe Varela confirmed to that he'll be dressing Princess Letizia but will not release any information regarding her outfit until photos of her in it come out.

It's also thought that Bruce Oldfield will be dressing The Duchess of Cornwall, but it hasn't been confirmed yet.






Guests started to arrive in Amsterdam, above you see Prince Charles and Camella arriving at Intercontinental Amsterdam, while below you can see Prince Naruhito and Princess Masako arriving at the Okura Hotel in The Netherlands yesterday.


 Princess Masako was wearing a Chanel suit.




Princess Lalla Salma was seen arriving in the same hotel too.



Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhornof Thailand was seen leaving it.



You can see members of the Dutch royal family arriving in the palace HERE, and the Queen HERE.

The final preparations are being made, you can see here.


And that's a wrap, tune in HERE or HERE or HERE now to catch the dinner, which we will discuss later tonight!

What's the dress code for the investiture?

So far the dress code hasn't been released, but most likely it will be white tie/military uniform, and gowns with hats (or tiaras or nothing), through history, ladies sometimes opted for hats or bejeweled headgears. Will update the post with information until the day comes. As for the abdication it's morning suits for both women and men.




We discussed that yesterday already, Click HERE to see the post.

Just one small update to yesterday's post, Jan Taminiau press agent replied today answering my email sent yesterday saying that they don't know if he'll be dressing Princess Maxima or not, but if he is, they'll send a press release AFTER the ceremony, gives you a clue? Don't forget to vote on the thread on both your expected colour and designer!


How cute are all these things?

VERY, check out this video of  people cheering for Queen Bea and you'll know!




What are you excited about the most in the abdication and investiture?



UPDATE: The Princely Palace of Monaco has confirmed the attendance of Prince Albert II; "H.S.H. Prince Albert II will attend the investiture ceremony of His majesty the King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands, in Amsterdam on 30th of April 2013."

 However, Princess Charlene will not be attending as she will be traveling abroad "within the framework of Her Foundation activities."




Style Speculation: What Will Maxima Wear for The Inauguration?

With just a few days until the abdication and inauguration of Prince Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, now is the perfect time to speculate what Maxima will wear as she becomes the Queen of The Netherlands.

On April 29th there will be a dinner given by the Queen (Beatrix), it's unknown if it will be a white tie affair or black tie, but for sure it'll include gowns!

On April 30th, the abdication and inauguration will take place in the palace and the parliament, Maxima is expected to wear a full length dress with a tiara or some serious head jewel, it's a morning event so nothing too flashy, too embroidered, or too sparkly.

By the after noon of the same day there will be a reception for royal and foreign missions and dignitaries (We will discuss who's going from our royals tomorrow).
And at night there will be a water pageant and a dinner hosted by the prime minister.

So 4 outings with at least three outfits, and there are five designers to be guessed:



Valentino



Valentino designed Maxima's wedding gown and many other night gowns for her, Maxima has also worn daydresses and suits from the ready to wear line.

Above there are some dresses from the latest three Couture collections, It's a great possibility that Max will wear white just like Beatrix did, but maybe she'll wear red or blue which are the other two colours of the Dutch flag, While the red gown is way too shiny for a day event, it's Maxima after all so we never really know, I like the powder pink one on the left, it's chic and elegant but without being overwhelming, Sheikha Mozah has it in blue.

So my favorite one is the dark blue gown with its simplicity, regality, train and Queen Juliana's resemblance (it was blue), it will form a great base for jewels unlike the amazing white gown!




NATAN


Natan is sadly a huge possibility, NATAN costum makes most of their pieces (Still they wouldn't fit well) so we can expect many stuff from them and Maxima, below two of my favorite looks that NATAN has designed for Maxima, both were worn to the Prinsjesdag which happens during the day too, the one on the right was then reworn with a tiara for a tiara affair.





Jan Taminiau


Many of you are placing their bids on this one, kind of a safe bid if you ask me since Jan who happens to be Dutch has recently become one of Maxima's favorite designers for mainly night attires but also for cocktail dresses and morning suits.
Since Jan's runway designs are Gaga and edgy (see the pics above), Maxima usually commissions costum made items, below is a gown that was worn for the Prinsjesdag with a hat then for a white tie dinner during a state visit to Oman.


Beautiful, Jan can somehow get Maxima to be edgy enough to wear a dress straight from his runway even if it would make her steal attention or look over the top, like at the pre-wedding dinner of Prince Guillaume last year.





Benito Fernandez

Princess Maxima wearing Benito Fernandez

Benito is Argentine like Maxima, so it might make sense that she wants to honor her mother country, especially since her parents will not be there.


Benito has dressed Max for many occasions, and they're costum made designs most of the times. the thing about Benito is that Maxima either looks very good or so bad in his designs, and I can't put my hands on the reason!

 
No, wait, it's shiny satin and feathers!

And just if you think you should not put your money on Benito, let me tell you this.

Will Princess Maxima wear this Benito Fernandez dress to the dinner?

Muy-mona.com visited Benito's atelier earlier this month and he showed her this gown saying that they were just about to send it to Princess Maxima, I'm assuming that Max might wear this dress on April 29th dinner just before she becomes a queen the next day, or maybe she'll wear it some time later, but not for the inauguration. 


The dress is embroidered on the shoulders, the waist and the skirt, while the top part has a leopard print with ruffles at the end of the skirt (at least there are no feathers). and I can honestly say I don't like it but I will wait to see Max wearing (or not wearing) it to decide.


Our last assumption for designers is:

Hoogeweegen Rouwers

I'm having a hard time spelling the name, too. Luckily, he also goes by H. Rouwers, but anyway, he's a Dutch designer (ALERT!) and Max has worn him once in 2008 for the Prinsjesdag, his designs are more of boho and less of princessy, but still he can make anything for his country's new queen!

As for the jewelry, Marc van der Linden who is a royal reporter said of television that he  heard from a source close to the court that Maxima will wear "something in gold and yellow", true or not? We have to guess!

Here's something to pass the remaining few days doing, guessing!
Firstly, Let's guess the colour, I still can't make my mind on whether it'll be blue or white!

What Colour Will Princess Maxima wear for The Inauguration?

The Poll is now closed: 43% voted white, 22% voted blue, while beige got 18%, and 17% other colours.

Maxima wore BLUE, so the majority was wrong :P


Who willl Princess Maxima wear for the inauguration?

The poll is now closed: 44% voted Jan Taminiau, 41% voted Valentino, while NATAN got only 8%


Maxima wore Jan Taminiau, so the majority was RIGHT! :)
