Royal Outfit of the Day: February 18

Queen Mathilde accompanied King Philippe on a short introductory visit to Germany yesterday, wearing a red dress with pleated detailing and a jacket with pleated details on the pockets and collar, from Belgian designer Pierre Gauthier. She also wore a matching hat, maroon gloves and clutch, and black shoes. 
I usually love a big red outfit, and I can't really pinpoint just why this is bringing out the mehs for me. What I do know is that it's probably a good thing she left behind the yellow bouquet she received on arrival; with the red outfit and black shoes, she was probably already close enough to their mutual country flag colors.
