If anyone on the royal scene was going to mix up their look, it was always going to be spirited Princess Maxima.
She's known for her love of colourful, feminine designs. But the Netherlands' future queen went for a more edgy look as she opened an exhibition in Amsterdam earlier this week.
The royal teamed opaque tights, ebony heels and a waist nipping belt with the bold leather number. Despite the sartorial details, her confident smile was the most dazzling accessory.

It's not the first time Crown Prince Willem-Alexander's wife has gone hell for leather.
She wore the same dress exactly two years ago for a rocking night out in 2010. (pictured, above left)
On that occasion Maxima was perfectly attired for the event in hand – she was the guest of honour at a music awards ceremony in Rotterdam.
