Máxima bought these evening dresses from Natan – Part 2

In this blog you will find the second part of all the dresses designed by Nathan Queen Maxima. Part 1 can be found under this link.

At the beginning of 2007, the pregnant Princess Maxima was on a state visit to Turkey. During the counter performance we saw her wearing a black evening dress with a long gown over it. Both were designed by Belgian fashion house Natan.

Crown Prince Willem-Alexander will turn 40 in April 2007. Because Princess Ariane was just born at that moment, the party was postponed. On her husband’s 40th birthday, Maxima in 2007 did a great job. She ordered a strapless evening dress with a layered skirt with broderie d’art by Edouard Vermeulen from Natan. And look at these cute girls!

At the opening of the India Festival in 2008, Princess Maxima wears a matching dress made by Nathan. The saree that Princess Maxima herself had bought in India was transformed into this beautiful dress.

In November 2009, Queen Beatrix went on an official visit to Mexico with Willem-Alexander and Maxima. During the state banquet – which as usual on 1e STATE VISIT DAY – Princess Maxima wore a sleeveless satin lace natan gown. It is at that moment the second time she has worn this dress. Click here for a blog about all four wear moments.

In 2009, the President of Chile paid a state visit to the Netherlands. During the counter performance, Princess Maxima chose a combination of a long dark orange tulle skirt with an orange silk blouse. Orange stones are attached to the pleats at the neckline.

On Budget Day 2012, Princess Maxima will appear in a silk crepe dress with a front slit on the right and an asymmetric valance at the waist. Striking: the dress is not new, but it was worn on the second day of the state visit to Qatar in 2011.

During the American Chamber of Commerce’s anniversary party, Princess Maxima wore a black Natan skirt, with a matching white Natan top. The set was worn a total of 4 times, up to 5 times higher.

On Saturday February 1, 2014, Princess Beatrix will be recognized in Rotterdam. Queen Maxima wears organza from the Natan couture collection in a navy two-piece evening dress. In 2016, Máxima ordered a new green and brown silk blouse with an evening skirt. We will see the result in November 2016 during the state visit to Australia.

At the Diplomatic Corps Dinner in 2016, Queen Maxima wore a beautiful red Natan gown. Details are not unimportant: this look is already outdated. She bought the skirt and blouse before her wedding and wore it to a party in January 2002. This outfit also appeared during a party in Thailand in 2006. Unfortunately we don’t have any pictures of these events.

Budget Day 2017: Queen Maxima wears a classic dress by Natan.

For Prinsjesdag 2021, Máxima is pulling out a batch of her wardrobe that’s been on hold for some time due to Corona. It consists of a delicately woven wool jersey top and a silk taffeta skirt with an abstract floral print.

During a state visit, not only an official banquet is held; On the second day also perform a countermeasure. For us it is always a great moment to enjoy the beautiful clothes you pass by. As part of a counter-performance linked to the Indian state visit to the Netherlands in April 2022, Queen Maxima wore a red silk blend by Natan design, consisting of a blouse with a shawl attached at the back and the side seam at the top, over wide trousers. We saw the group earlier during the Liberation Day party in 2019.
