Princess Lalla Salma Of Morocco Emerges As Style Star After Dutch Inauguration (PHOTOS)

Queen Maxima seemed like the indisputable style star of the Dutch inauguration festivities -- hey, the woman became a queen, for crying out loud. But it looks like another royal turned more heads at the glamorous celebrations: Princess Lalla Salma of Morocco.

According to a Hello! magazine poll, the redheaded princess stole the show at both the pre-inauguration dinner and the ceremony the following day. Lalla Salma's white, beaded confection, tiara and cascading curls at the dinner raked in 38 percent of the best-dressed votes (slipping her in front of Denmark's Princess Mary and Spain's Princess Letizia).

Then, as the Moroccan princess watched Dutch King Willem-Alexander take the throne, all eyes were on her intricate green caftan and matching gold accessories, earning her 45 percent of the vote. Forget that Queen Maxima turned up at the state dinner in Valentino Couture or that she stunned in two Dutch designer looks the day of the inauguration -- the people have spoken, and they want Lalla Salma.

Of course, the 35-year-royal princess consort of King Mohammed VI of Morocco hasn't been noticed by media quite like her fellow nobles Maxima, Kate Middleton and Princess Charlene (no "Princess Lalla Salma Effect" just yet). But we're already hoping to see more of the former computer engineer (yes, really!) as she continues to impress with her fashion choices.

What do you think of Lalla Salma's Dutch inauguration looks? Should they have earned her the best-dressed title?
