The black dress of Sonsoles Zapatero is super elegant, imo!

I really don't like the dress of the Portuguese First lady... it is so ugly, imo. And it is too long for her, you can't even see her shoes. Does anyone knows who is the Designer?... Anyway, she seems relaxed and nice (like she always is). :)

The Queen is very elegant and regal (as usual).

So I guess this is the famous portuguese PDA .

Thank you for sharing lula and fanletizia. What order did the Portuguese President received from King Juan Carlos?! Isabel the Catholic?!

Our First-Lady is not so bad, Juanita, the dress is acceptable but she just doesn't have the figure for that. And besides Queen Sofia with that amaizing Tiara and dress the difference between Gowns is screaming out loud.

But as Regina said Mrs. Maria Cavaco Silva have other attributes that make her a charming person and the Queen is the perfect host; Mrs. Cavaco Silva could even wear shorts that the Queen would react and welcome her the same way.

But I wonder who designed the dress?! A friend?! Doesn't look an Augustus does it?! Let's see if our media give news about it.

Regards,
mtbcm

haha! First day, first mistake...

The colour is awful, she is too tanned to use this kind of yellow...
Like some members said before me, the dress is too long, but it's also too large...
She has large hips, and this dress makes her even more large... It's a pitty.

Yeah! The dress isn't bad for her style. Because in other years, she was worst! But i don't like the dress for me.

Yeah, maybe a friend... But with friends like these... who needs enemies?!

Ha! Ha! You guys are funny!!

Yes, the dress should have had a slimmer skirt and the color was not very becoming.

ahahahahahah

It is really a pity; if she had dressed a more vaporous dress that disguised the non-existing waist in other tone different necklace... oh welll I just realised that not even Cinderella could make anything from this dress; a miracle wouldn't be enough ... I was hoping for a dress in shades of blue! Oh well maybe next time!

But the green-lime suit on the afternoon was very elegant wasn't it?

mtbcm

The green-lime suit and the white suit were quite good, very elegant both of them! But in comparison with other time, she is wonderful!

One more lovely picture of Letizia and the family:

Spain's Princess Letizia is pregnant with her second child and expects to give birth in early May.

Does anybody have pictures of Infantas Pilar and Margarita? I believe they attended the dinner as well.
Did Don Carlos and Princess Anne attend btw?

Thanks fanletizia! I don't recall any of the kings sisters wearing the Melliero shell tiara before, it looks nice in combination with Margarita's pearls though. The Princess looks well to!
Does anybody know what tiara Infanta Pilar is wearing? Or the provenance of the necklace of Elena (who looks great IMO).

From Hola.es:


(a precious moment between the King and his daughter, Infanta Doña Elena, who was gorgeous and regal as ever )


I found it so nice and tender from King's side to invite his sisters to be present and meet a piece of Portuguese nation that they loved so much for so long. I wish our President would have taken some persons that they would love to see again; but I understand this was not a walk in a park ...

Thank you for great job done fan and lula, did you manage to sleep anything tonight?! I went to bed you were here I return and you are already here... Thank you very much, your work is highly appreciated.

I love the ceiling pictures, WOW

Regards,
mtbcm
