King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima with their daughters, (L to R) the Princess of Orange (Catharina-Amalia), Princess Ariane, and Princess Alexia.Queen Máxima ordered up an extra special outfit for this extra special birthday occasion, obviously. Jan Taminiau created a striped dress in dark blue and ochre with a cape to keep her cozy on a chilly April day. The shirred ribbon stripes on the dress feature metallic embellishment and crystals; the cape transitions from a matte chenille top to a smooth sateen bottom, the colors blending in an ombré style. Máxima accessorized with a hat echoing the textures of the design and a camel bag, shoes, and gloves to match. She also wore diamond earrings that she has used with multiple pendant options, sapphires this time.

This new ensemble comes with a special treat: it will be immediately shown at the Textile Museum in Tilburg alongside the Queen's magnificent blue caped inaugural gown from the same designer. The design, a regular outfit from afar and a textile experiment come to life up close, is a perfect match for the museum.
