Summer 2017 is all about the statement sleeve — and the Netherlands’ Queen Maxima and Qatar’s Sheikha Moza bint Nasser Al Missned are all over it. On Friday, the women attended a law seminar at the Hague in the Netherlands and, in addition to promoting international peace, pushed forward the fashionable trend.
According to Moza’s Instagram, she said in her speech that the United Nations Security Council is “broken in exactly those situations where it is needed most — to hold to account those who commit grave violations of international law.” Wearing a bubblegum pink peplum top with pleated sleeves that she paired with a pleated black skirt, she also noted that only when all countries abide by international law will peace and security be possible.
شددت صاحبة السمو في خطابها على أن السلام والأمن سيكونان ممكنان فقط عندما تلتزم جميع الدول بالقانون الدولي. وأشارت سموّها إلى أن مجلس الأمن الدولي، بصفته الهيئة المسؤولة عن ضمان السلم والأمن الدوليين وفقا لميثاق الأمم المتحدة، عجز في أكثر الظروف حاجة إليه. #لاهاي #هولندا #تعليم #سلام HH Sheikha Moza argued in her speech that peace and security will only be possible when all nations adhere to international law. She stated that the UN Security Council – the body charged with ensuring international peace – is “broken in exactly those situations where it is needed most – to hold to account those who commit grave violations of international law.” #hague #peace #netherlands #education
A post shared by Moza bint Nasser (@mozabintnasser) on May 19, 2017 at 5:23am PDT
Moza, who’s the daughter of Nasser bin Abdullah Al Missned and the second wife of Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani’s three wives, was hosted by the Dutch queen, who popped in a royal blue dress with bell sleeves. Maxima accessorized with a brooch on her left shoulder, as well as sapphire earrings, and carried a suede clutch that matched her nude heels.
If the queen’s dress looks familiar, it’s because Melania Trump wore it last July. At the Republican National Convention, the wife of the then Republican nominee took the stage in a white version of Roksanda Ilinčić’s Margot dress.
While Trump’s piece originally sold for $2,195 (she actually bought it herself online from Net-A-Porter), the queen’s version is currently available for $1,515.
The 46-year-old royal, who was born in Argentina, is far from the first fashionista to take cues from Melania Trump. Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio, gave a speech at the Democratic convention in a white dress that was identical to Melania’s; Edie Falco wore a black version of the Ilinčić dress in December; Natalie Portman wore a similar dress designed by Dior to the Screen Actors Guild Awards in January; and Zoey Deutch’s Tory Burch gown at the Met Gala featured a strikingly similar silhouette to the Margot.
