Queen Máxima visited the Dordrechts Museum yesterday to open an exhibition and kick off the museum’s 175th anniversary celebrations this year. For this visit, she wore a dark grey velvet felt hat with upswept ‘slice’ brim and square crown, simply trimmed with a wide silk hatband.
I toyed with naming this post, “Queen Máxima Blends In With The Wallpaper” because of how beautifully her ensemble coordinated with the painting. This is obviously not coincidental and makes for a lovely touch at an event with such personal connections. Because we’re used to seeing Máxima in vibrant outfits, the grey and green scheme might seem a bit bland on its own… in context with this event, however, it was simply perfect.
Designer: Fabienne Delvigne
Previously Worn: I believe this hat is new
Because this hat looks so similar to others worn by Queen Máxima, I assumed it was a repeat. Close inspection, however, shows that the crown and brim on this one are slightly different than its close cousins shown below- making me think we need to take a look at Queen Máxima’s inventory of grey hats, soon.
What do you think of this new hat?
