King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima were Kerkrade today to commemorate 50 years since the closing of mines in this region. For this visit, Queen Máxima repeated a small fascinator of black silk rosettes, ecru feathers and a small black birdcage net tulle veil. It has been several years since she last wore this piece and I thought its pairing today with her high necked dress, flowing hairstyle and black accessories worked very well. Fascinators get a bad wrap (and do not find much popularity among readership here!) but this interesting piece addeds a wonderful final touch to Máxima’s ensemble. In the end, that’s a millinery job well done.
