The hosts William and Maxima of Holland They offered a state dinner this Wednesday for their guests of honor, Don Felipe and Doña Letiziaand they have immortalized the meeting with an imposing image marked by the spectacular looks and laughter of the two monarchs, friends since childhood.

The style duel Joy y Maximum It is one of the most anticipated. They are two of the most elegant queens (and women, beyond royalty) on the public scene and their meetings are a delight for connoisseurs and fashion fans. If we add to the equation gala dresses and tiaras, among other jewels, it is a true dream, the best scene from a million-dollar production worthy of The Crown. This Wednesday, the Spanish queen and the Dutch queen once again measured their ‘strengths’ at a gala dinner in which they shared the spotlight with the young Princess Amalia, who was making her debut in these parts.

As it could not be otherwise, the queens have worn two very different styles but from the same color range: blue. Doña Letizia’s, cobalt, Máxima’s, anthracite. The Spaniard has opted for a wide and classic model with a round neck and Japanese-style French sleeves finished with a delicate bow, a design signed by The 2nd Skin, perfect for the tiara she has chosen on this occasion: La Rusa.

Máxima, for her part, has opted for a more modern cut, with a large-volume, fluid ‘A’ skirt with pleats at the waist and a flared hem. The upper part consists of a bodice and open shoulders with dropped sleeve effect in chiffon, signed by designer Jan Taminiau.

The princess, who turned 20 last December, debuted at her first state dinner in a straight-cut midnight blue dress with a V-neckline and a delicate layer of tulle. Simple. Sophisticated. Perfect.
