Queen Maxima of the Netherlands showed off her stylistic prowess this afternoon at the 2023 Cultuurfonds Prize ceremony in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

The colorful knee-length pencil dress featured contrasting lace appliqués and embellishments throughout – in hues of mulberry and red.
Maxima was beaming as she arrived at the annual event at the Zuidplein Theater.
King Willem-Alexander’s wife wore glamorous makeup with bold eyeliner, bronzed cheekbones and a glossy nude lip.

She completed her look with subtle diamond earrings while her blonde tresses were left open.
Earlier this month, the Prince Bernhard Cultural Fund removed the Danish prince’s name from its title after discovering that he was a member of the NSDAP – Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party.
“This name fits who we are now, with a focus on our content,” wrote director Cathelijne Broers in a statement on X, officially Twitter.
The Cultuurfonds emerged from the Prince Bernhard Fund, with which the prince was associated from 1940 until his death in 2004. It was renamed Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds in 1999.
The Cultuurfonds Prize has been awarded since 2010. Each year it is awarded to an honoree who focuses on a different style of work.
Last year it was awarded to the Anne Frank House. The organization received 100,000 euros because for decades it has “made Anne Frank’s life story and ideas known to the world in a creative and inspiring way,” Ms. Broers said.
This comes after Queen Maxima of the Netherlands attracted attention in a fiery red dress as she attended an event marking the fifth anniversary of a non-profit organization that aims to create a “debt-free country.”
The mother of three arrived dressed to impress as she hosted celebrations in The Hague for the DebtlabNL foundation, which works to free Dutch citizens from debt.

Maxima turned heads in a figure-hugging red midi dress with long sleeves. She paired the dress with a pair of dark red suede pointy pumps and a matching leather clutch.
Ever the fashionista, she paired the bag and shoes with a burgundy poncho, which she later took off inside the building.
She opted for minimalist jewelry and accessorized the look with a pair of red chunky drop-down earrings while wearing just a ring and a bracelet.
Her signature blonde tresses fell loosely around her shoulders, providing the perfect backdrop for her glamorous makeup.
The queen opted for black smoky eyeshadow, liquid eyeliner and a rose-colored lip to complete her makeup look.
She appeared in a cheerful mood as she walked through the event and greeted everyone in attendance.
At the event, held today, attendees reflected on the work of financial advisory firm Deloitte and DebtLabNL to ease debt burdens across the country.
DebtLabNL, a non-profit organization, today celebrated the fifth anniversary of its attempt to improve the effectiveness of Dutch debt assistance.
Queen Maxima, Honorary Chair of the DebtlabNL Foundation, spoke to various experts about her passion for the initiative.
