Maxima has several gala gowns she recycled. Amazing fact, some with many years in between and she still fits them!

^ Maxie sure likes those fringes and flounces! At least you can't say she's boring though. She takes a load of chances.

Indeed it seems she does, based on how many fringes and flounces dresses she has worn over time. And I agree she takes a lot of chances.

I particularly love that rusty orange dress she wore in Denmark, she looked amazing!!!

If it wasn't for being married to Wax, I'd be super jealous of Max..

Very glamorous yet normal at the same time, if that makes sense

Love this post.  Thanks Principessa for putting the photos together.  I wouldn't be able to fit into my clothing from a few years ago let alone from over a decade.  Maxima chooses gowns that highlights her personality and lets her shine.

In the Netherlands you have a saying: Doe maar normaal, dan doe je gek genoeg (Literally translated as: Act normally, then you are acting crazy enough or Just act normal, that?s already crazy enough)

IMO one of the aspects of Dutch culture, especially for the older Dutch, is not wanting to stand out (not being conform the 'normal' standard). It is not easy for me in English to explain what it exactly embraces.

But actions and/or behavior which are often commented by the Dutch and considered not normal:
bragging, showing off or acting pretentious, discussing money (or how much you have), showing a little too much personality, showing avert public displays of anger or emotion, not following the ever-important rules and regulations and  acting or being anything else perceived to be ?weird?, ?different? ?disobedient? or ?foreign?.

I think Maxima, sometimes by trial and error, brought some glamour to the Dutch (Royals), but also identified the 'act normal' part.

So, Max is considered too flamboyant?

Or I'm missing your point?

Not exactly.

The Dutch culture is also changing, but in the beginning the Dutch of course had to get used to Max, her clothing and her behavior. Currently she tops most of the popularity listings with regard to Dutch royals in the Netherlands.

People appreciate her sparkling personality (including that infectious smile), but I can imagine that especially for the older Dutch people something new and overwhelming.

Just like the other royal ladies Maxima changed  (by trial and error) with regard to clothing. For example in the beginning she dressed very formal at events like Queensday. But she learned very quick and came with nice and surprising outfits. Some were a real hit!

Queen Juliana, WA's grandmother, wanted to be ordinary and have an ordinary life. Not much glamour there she was very interested in people and events. In comparison to her mother Queen Wilhelmina and her daughter Queen Beatrix, Juliana was way more accessible.

Queen Beatrix, WA's mother, had a style which has been ascribed as aloof, distant and pragmatic. In other words much more distant than Juliana. IMO Beatrix improved the glamour factor, but not that much.
