On Saturday, the Dutch Royal Family attended a special performance in Rotterdam to celebrate Princess Beatrix's reign (yes, now that Beatrix has abdicated she is once again styled as Princess). It was a night to mark Beatrix's time as Queen and the current Queen, Máxima, looked incredibly regal in a gorgeous gown by her go-to designer Natan.
The gown comes from designer's 2013 Autumn/Winter Couture Collection. Below we see it in brown, though I much prefer the blue, as it seems to show the silhouette of the frock much better and it worked excellently with Maxima's blonde hair.
Máxime accessorised with sapphire and diamond jewels, you'll note the Queen wore the brooch on her waist, a very nice change and an additional element to look. Royal fans may not be familiar with the striking brooch as it has been in the vault for decades. It was originally acquired back in 1872 and worn by Queen Wilhelmina.
Máxima's pretty silver clutch is by a little-known but up-and-coming designer from the Philippines called Celestina. The brand's designs are now carried by Net-A-Porter and available to purchase online. The woven silver filigree clutch originally retailed for $1695 and is described as adding a touch of "erotic-luxe" to any look. As you can see it's quite different - opening in the middle and detaching.
Máxima completed the look with a shawl and an elegant updo.
We wrap today's Style File up with a look at Natan's Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. Plenty to like in terms of design and colourways, not to mention endless options for the fabulous Queen Máxima.
