First things first, though: arrival time.
With Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-DudaI see where they were trying to go here - volume at the back and a cinched waist at the front, a silhouette she's experimented with in the past - but going there with this heavy of a print accidentally spreads that volume all over the place. (View it from multiple angles in this gallery, plus more looks at the evening event.) Also, these topless hats drive me nuts.
I'm ready and willing to forget all that, because then it was time for TIARAS! And yes, that is tiaras plural, despite the fact that Queen Mathilde was the only one tiara'd up. She wore two tiaras, one of which was new to her. Attagirl!
It's also exciting to see Mathilde wear another tiara, period. She's never had much of a selection at her disposal, and she's been sticking with the Nine Provinces Tiara since Philippe took the throne. And seeing her inner magpie come out to play? Priceless. Keep it up, Your Maj.TTMM the King & the Queen honour the signatories of the 14 ac.&ec. agreements with their presence. #BELstatevisitPOL pic.twitter.com/ttrfyX0pXz— Belgium MFA (@BelgiumMFA) October 13, 2015
