As one of Europe’s most popular monarchs, Queen Máxima of the Netherlands is revered for her winning smile, sparkling personality and playful sense of fashion. And the Dutch queen proved every inch the royal style icon while on official visit to Japan and South Korea this week, charming fans all over the world in a number of regal yet fashion-forward looks.
With her husband King Willem-Alexander by her side, the 43-year-old queen greeted Prince Naruhito and Princess Masako of Japan in a 1950s-inspired orange dress – the Netherlands’ national colour – paired with metallic pumps and a matching belt.
But it was at a Japanese state banquet where Máxima truly turned heads, dazzling in a glamorous gold gown paired with her royal sash and a glittering tiara.
The mother of three continued her fashion tour de force in South Korea, where she wowed in a gorgeous champagne-coloured dress and matching cape. The elegant number featured a mint-green pattern on the waist, which Máxima teamed with a pair of jade earrings and a jade bracelet.
