Queen Maxima's Orange Dress Makes A Welcome Second Appearance (PHOTOS)

Even queens like to shop their own closets -- or at least Queen Maxima does.

When the trend-setting Dutch royal stepped out to celebrate the opening of the academic year at Wageningen University Monday, we knew her look was pure Maxima: brightly colored and playful yet feminine. But we also knew that we had seen that coral dress before.

And we had! In July, when Maxima met Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, she wore the very same frock (and the very same shoes) but mixed it up with a brooch and a sleek updo. Perhaps she left her fascinator at home to appease the English queen?

Either way, we think Maxima aced the repeat.
