Thanks for all the pics Principessa  Star
That's a very mmm interesting collection of gloves  the thing that surprises me the most about those gloves is that she saw the need to wear them in the Caribbean. At leats thrice  Huh?

That was the same thing that surprised me.......
Especially the combination of a summer dress (no sleeves etc) combined with those leather (and other material) gloves.

When M?xima wore gloves at her first Queensday (2002) I think several Dutch were surprised. To me she seemed to be a bit too overdressed for the occasion. After some years of no or almost no gloves they came back. And apparently to stay for a long while.

Perhaps it's something with her skin or so. Often she is seen wearing only the left one (also discussed in the 2013 fashion article). Why!?

I actually love her gloves (though not in the Caribbean!), though they may be something only she can carry off.  I assume she takes off the right glove to shake hands - perhaps she thinks it's rude to shake hands with a gloved hand?

Sounds plausible, thanks.

Linking of the gloves depend on the situation and outfit IMO. When combined with a summer dress in hot area it seems strange and/or overdone.

Too true!  I also thought the red gloves in that top-to-toe red outfit just too much!

I have to say, that I find gloves strangely flattering. There simply is something to be said about a lady and her gloves.
Several of the pictures however also show her wearing gloves with a wintery attire and then I think they probably simply make sense.
Anyway, as I said, I like the gloves, but with her budget I would recommend getting gloves made from a much thinner and finer material. Esp when she wants to wear them with summer or gala attire, some of those she sported look too thick and thus not elegant enough.

I agree, the gloves give her a very elegant, classic, 50s vibe, but she should wear something light for summer ( like silk) instead of leather or similar and sometimes they are really unnecessary but whe know Max and this is part of who she is and her style.

I think it has something to do with shaking hands.
The Danes do it to, I believe?

One is actually someone important inside the UN, the other is an eternal wannabe that is there just because Denmark puts lots of money on projects not merit Clown

Also the red/pink leopard dress is Natan (I was just checking the collection because of the thing with the black butterflies applications):



While I think the pind/red is good on her. And the simple cut fits the wild pattern.

But mark my words, there are some other looks in the autumn/winter collections of her beloved Satan which will provide us with a lot to dish about. I am sure she has bought a good deal of them.
And all her Natan looks are either great or real shit. There's just nothing inbetween. Imho.

This Queen seem like a fun and very intelligent women
I read she used work in a  bank or something before marriage to a prince.
I myself I Don't see attractions towards the king, I  mean he not good looking. But can see she general wants be with him for him
I wish we had somebody like her and Queen letizia of Spain instead  of a kate that uk have..Kate is plan boring and don't even know if she smart. Prince William is too stiff.

I hope her children take some of her *especially the heir *while all the children will need to support themselves* her intelligence, hard work and enjoying doing it. The way she present herself .
A question do you think she try too hard when she always smiling etc
She the one that making this royal more alive as her husband king is bit boring, I am wrong?

I guess it also works because Maxima supports causes and initiatives which fit her background and interests. Besides the 'regular stuff'

Maxima graduated with a degree in Economics from the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina in 1995, and later completed her studies with a Master in the United States.  As a student she worked (1989-1990) at Mercado Abierto S.A., where she performed research at software for the financial markets. From 1992 till 1995 she was employed at the sales department of Boston Securities S.A. in Buenos Aires. Maxima also worked as a teacher of English language to children and adults, and of Mathematics for high school students and freshmen. She subsequently worked for large international finance companies in Argentina, New York, and Brussels.

According to the Dutch language Wiki:
After her study Economics Maxima went living in New York. From July 1996 till March 1998 she was vice-president Latin American Institutional Sales at the banc HSBC James Capel Inc. Subsequently till 1999 Maxima was vice-president Upcoming Markets at the banc Dresdner Kleinwort Benson. After that, till August 200, she was vice-president Institutional Sales at the Deutsche Bank

Over time Maxima has particulary been involved in projects, commissions, organisations, etc with regard to economics and immigration. Based on her background and her being an immigrant herself both fitting subjects.

Before her marriage Maxima took the compulsory inburgerings (naturalization) course for immigrants. Shortly after her marriage since July 2003  Maxima participated in the temporary commission Participation of Women from Ethnic Minorities, who advised the Dutch government in the field of integration of ethnic minorities. Maxima seemed to focus on issues surrounding the integration of immigrant women. The committee was disbanded on July 2005. M?xima stresses the importance for immigrants of learning the Dutch language (as she did) in order to fully participate in Dutch society. Dutch is actually the Queen's third language; she is also fluent in Spanish (her native language) and English. She speaks French to a conversational level.

Maxima was granted a seat in the Council of State in October 2004, the highest advisory body of the government. She can since then attend the deliberations and participate. But she is not a member and has no voting rights.

Maxima has a seat on the board of governors of the Chair on the Management of Diversity and Integration at the Free University of Amsterdam (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam); she (along with her husband) is a patron of the Orange Fund (established to promote social welfare and cohesion in the Netherlands); and she also chairs the Board of Trustees of the Prince Claus Chair in Development and Equity of the International Institute of Social Studies and the University of Utrecht.

She participated in projects like Money week (Geldweek) and other money awareness programs (mainly focused on the youth).

M?xima is one of the few members of royal families anywhere in the world to be an open supporter of gay rights, and was the first member of a royal family to attend an LGBT rights conference, having attended a conference concerned with LGBT rights on 5 March 2008

Since 2009 she is the official advocate of the Secretary-General of the United Nations for inclusive finance for development. In that capacity, she gives advice to the Secretary-General to make available all over the world of financial services for everyone. Because of her efforts, she received on March 21, 2014 in Baden-Baden, the German Media Prize 2013.

M?xima is also the Honorary Patron of the G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI) since June 2011. In this role she works with governments and partners to advance the G20 Action Plan on Financial Inclusion, and the G20 Financial Inclusion Peer Learning Program. Previously, the Queen was a member of the Advisors Group for the United Nations' International Year of Microcredit 2005 and until 2009, was a member of UN Advisors Group on Inclusive Financial Sectors.

Its a real impressive resum? she has, also given the fact that she made her way to New York finance district without any royal connection.
And the UN can be happy to have her, as she does not seem to be a figurehead for the inclusive finance topic, but has actually the knowledge to be a real asset for them.

What I like most with her is that no matter what she is doing, whether just accepting bouquets from a crowd, painting a wall for a social project, giving a speech, visiting UN headquarter, touring a local cheese factory or parading in ball gown & tiara ... she does it with a genuine smile (which includes her eyes), and she at least gives the impression that she enjoys all her work.
To me it seems as she's grateful for her life and really tries to give back to the people financing her position.

Sure she loves her fashion, sure she loves to overdo, and sure she loves to bathe in diamonds (and why not if the vault is wide open), but I don't think that she's really vain, otherwise she'd pay more attention to her hair everyday and let the hamster out more often.
