Queen Maxima of the Netherlands' style during her first week as queen

Queen Maxima of the Netherlands' style during her first week as queen

Tuesday May 07, 2013 - 09h00
<span>Princess Maxima of the Netherlands stunned in a gorgeous Valentino dress at a diner celebrating the abdication of Dutch Queen Beatrix and the investiture of Prince Willem Alexander as King, in the Rijksmuseum, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on April 2013.</span>

In her first week as queen of the Netherlands, Queen Maxima has had a lot of events to attend and has faced a lot of flashing cameras, an experience she shares with her doppelganger, Britney Spears.

Maxima has managed it all in top style, however, nailing each one of her appearances. We thought we'd take a look back at our favourite style moments for Maxima's first week as queen.

We love...

Her varying chignons. Kate Middleton, another glamorous royal, has great hair but she keeps it the same. Maxima, on the other hand, has worn a different hairstyle to each and every event. She favours sleek chignons (we've got a tutorial of one right here if you want to try it.)

She's got a look for every occasion. Maxima looked lovely, but thoroughly appropriate, for a recent Remembrance Day ceremony.

That's quite a hard thing to balance when you think about it. She wore all black for the occasion, marking the Dutch who have died in peacekeeping missions since WWII, but her vibrant fuchsia lipstick brought a bit of glamour and a bit of hope.

Her polished makeup look is consistent, even if she varies the colour, cut and style of her clothes. She just looks healthy and glowing, which is natural, but emphasized with some skillfully applied makeup!

Her big smile. Maxima is often described as vibrant and gregarious and she seems to be really and truly enjoying her busy schedule.

If that's week one, what will week two hold? And week three? Goodness, we're excited. Mark our words, Maxima has some good years as queen ahead of her.
