Let’s Bask in Some Max…

… because it’s cold and gray and dull here, and Max always brings the sunshine.

It is to her credit that Max brings the same level of interest and enthusiasm to each and every one of her events. Whether she’s opening an art exhibit, touring a cheese factory, or signing documents for a new lease on her palace, she is always intent and focused and appears just happy to be there. That, folks, is a gift, and we are lucky to witness it.

The story of Max is that her clothes don’t always reach the same levels of consistency. Fortunately, this outing falls on the works-for-her end of the spectrum. Yes, it’s her go-to, Natan, which can be tricky. In this case, though, the color and style suit her. The fabric flows. It fits.

The Fabienne Delvigne hat matches well, color-wise, and although I miss the drama of her usual large brim, this allows for a better view of her face.
It wouldn’t be Max if she didn’t add some drama, which she does here with a statement necklace – first worn in Vietnam in 2011 – that lands quite a statement.

If you were getting bored by all the matching pieces and the overall tasteful appearance, click through the slide show above to see her treat the crowd to a couple of quick changes. She modeled a glittery long coat and donned a colorful kimono to try her hand at spray painting. Good sport, thy name is Máxima.
