From New York to Abu Dhabi: Máxima recovers her polka dot dress that connects with Julia Roberts

While Mrs. Letizia has set course today to the Republic of Paraguay on the occasion of a cooperation visit, the kings of the Netherlands have landed in Adu Dabi to visit Expo 2020. Far from advocating for comfortable or relaxed travel looks, the couple has exuded elegance upon arrival in the Arab capital. Maximum has once again demonstrated why it is considered one of the royals that more (and better) recycle clothing when betting again on a stylish polka dot dress that we have seen on up to three different occasions. It is a flattering design that, in addition, hides a curious anecdote, and that is that its pattern inevitably reminds us of one of the most emblematic looks of the movie Pretty woman.


A very traveling dress

The Dutch sovereign has gotten off the plane to star in the official welcome with a crew neck model, puffed long sleeves, fitted bodice and pleated midi skirt in ‘A’ silhouette. To enhance the silhouette, this garment also adds a wide belt made to match the dress, in a light fabric of caramel tone adorned with white polka dots. It is a creation of the Zimmermann firm that, curiously, Máxima has worn in three different countries: the day of its premiere in the United States in November 2019, in Indonesia in March 2020 and the United Arab Emirates in 2021. On this occasion, he has added some simple matching suede pumps, an envelope-type handbag in the same material and pearl dangling earrings, as well as a raw scarf that he has carried in his hand in case he needed bundle up later.

The Danish princess also added a belt to mark the silhouette to her look, as well as golden high-heeled sandals.
