Queen Maxima of the Netherlands showcased her style prowess for the presentation of the Cultuurfonds Prize 2023 in Rotterdam, Netherlands this afternoon.
The Dutch royal, 52, stunned in a Claes Iversen dress from her collection, teaming it with red suede court shoes and a matching clutch.
The vibrant, knee-length pencil dress featured contrasting lace applique and all-over embellishment – created in shades of mulberry and red.
Maxima was beaming as she arrived at the annual event, held at the Zuidplein Theatre.
The wife of King Willem-Alexander sported glamorous make-up, incorporating heavy eyeliner, bronzed cheekbones and a glossy, nude lip.
She completed her look with understated diamond earrings, while her blonde locks were left loose.
Earlier this month, the Prince Bernhard Cultuurfonds dropped the Danish Prince’s name from its title after discovering he was a member of the NSDAP – Adolf Hitler’s Nazi party.
‘This name suits who we are now, with a focus on our content,’ director Cathelijne Broers wrote in a statement on X, formally Twitter.
The Cultuurfonds initiated from the Prince Bernhard Fonds, with which the Prince was associated from 1940 until his death in 2004. It was changed to Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds in 1999.
The Cultuurfonds Prize has been awarded since 2010. Each year it is given to a recipient focused on a different style of work.
Last year it was awarded to the Anne Frank House. The organisation received 100,000 euros because, for decades, it ‘has been bringing Anne Frank’s life story and ideas to the attention of the world in a creative and inspiring way,’ said Ms Broers.
It comes after Queen Maxima of the Netherlands commanded attention in a fiery red dress as she attended an event to mark the fifth anniversary of a non-profit aiming to create a ‘debt-free country’.
The mother-of-three came dressed to impress as she hosted celebrations in The Hague for the SchuldenlabNL Foundation, which is involved in efforts towards ridding Dutch citizens of their debt.
Maxima turned heads in a figure-hugging red midi dress with long sleeves. She teamed the frock with a pair of dark red suede pointed pumps and a matching leather clutch bag.
Ever the fashionista, she paired the bag and shoes with a wine-coloured poncho which she later removed once inside the building.
Opting for minimal jewellery, she accessorised the look with a pair of red chunky drop down earrings, while she sported just one ring and one bracelet.
Her signature blonde tresses fell loosely around her shoulders, serving as the perfect frame for her glamorous make-up.
The royal opted for black smoky eyeshadow, liquid eyeliner and a rosy pink lip to finish her make-up look.
She appeared in cheery spirits as she made her way around the event and greeted all in attendance.
The event, which took place today, saw participants reflect on the work carried out by financial advisory company Deloitte and SchuldenLabNL to ease debt stress across the nation.
SchuldenLabNL, a non-profit organisation, today celebrated five years in its attempt to improve effectiveness of Dutch debt support.
Queen Maxima, the honorary chairman of the SchuldenlabNL Foundation, spoke with various professionals about her passion for the initiative.
