Maxima stakes her claim as the Princess of fashion

The Netherland's stylish future Queen, Princess Maxima, championed fashion's latest look as she stepped out at the Holland Festival this week.

The cape has been given a new lease of life this year after gracing the shoulders of some of the most fashionable stars.

And in a new modern twist, it has also been incorporated into a range of dresses, favoured by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Diane Kruger.


It's an approach that has received the royal stamp of approval.

Proudly escorted by her husband Willem-Alexander, Maxima looked radiant in a white cape dress.

With gold accessories and her blonde hair styled around her face, the 41-year-old lit up the red carpet as she arrived for the final concert of the festival, held in Amsterdam.

It was the second stylish appearance from the princess in as many days.

On Thursday, the royal couple attended the opening of an exhibition on King Louis Napoleon at the Palace in Amsterdam.

And the Argentina-born beauty again stole the show in a fitted red and white summer dress that she teamed with matching heels and clutch.
