Royal Dresses of the Day: Máxima and Mary Go Formal

The royals are returning from their summer breaks and they are bringing their evening gowns with them and I am READY.

Queen Máxima attended a benefit dinner for the Princess Máxima Center for children's oncology this week.

I don't really know about this gown - which, if it had a different neckline, I could easily believe was stolen from Crown Princess Mette-Marit's closet - but finding something to perfectly match this necklace and earring set is impressive. Máxima's worn this unusual set of what looks to be sapphires, diamonds, and moonstones for a few years; its provenance is unknown.

Did she go searching for just the right dress for the set, or was it a happy coincidence? Or does she have enough in her jewel vault to match any dress? A true chicken or egg question.
Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik attended a dinner celebrating 10 years of the Mary Foundation this week.
Please tell me I'm not the only one getting serious Sabrina vibes here. I mean, BE STILL MY HEART. Only a few pictures from this event were released, so it's hard to get a sense of the bottom of the dress and I am now extremely invested in seeing it again with a nice full length shot. ASAP! (Pretty please?)
