Born as Mathilde d’Udekemd’Acoz in 1973, Queen Mathilde of Belgium is the wife of King Philippe; she is the first Belgian born queen of the Belgians. Besides her work on issues like education, health, and violence towards women, she has caught the interest of the global press thanks to her chic style of dress. She has been hailed as one of Europe’s most stylish royals and one of the best dressed women in the world, too. Though often spotted in simple and elegant silhouettes of monochromatic tones, she does seem to have a flair for elaborate motifs and creative floral and abstract prints. She also likes to wear hats and a variety of headgear to complete her ensemble. When it comes to colours, she is frequently spotted in beige hues, as well as pops of colours including hot pink, hot orange, cobalt blue, and vibrant yellow, and green. She keeps her makeup minimal and natural, sometimes opting for lipsticks in bold shades of red and pink.
