BRINDIS CON SABOR ARGENTINO EN EL HONOR DE CRISTINA FERNÁNDEZ DE KIRCHNER


the king is getting fragile i have to say.

letizia looks much better than around lunchtime, what difference a hairdresser & some make up make! she still looks sad but erika's fate will always be present, especially around the anniversary of her death.

the gown / combination is a decent outfit for a state dinner. as donnaK said earlier, the dress is repeated, the skirt for the 3rd time and it's subject to discussion whether the top is repeated only for the second time (there are those who believe that the first time is a completely different top, not only an altered neckline):

yesterday:

1st outing, february 2006, russian state visit

2nd outing, november 2007, romanian state visit
http://cache.gettyimages.com/xc/7809...4831B75F48EF45

as this belongs into the fashion thread could the moderators please reopen letizia's eveningwear?

we are still waiting for the blue prince-charles-gown. with letizia's recycling habits it will pop up sooner or later.

Does anybody know why the presidents husband, former president Kirchner of Argentina, didn't escort her? I know he has very little patience for empty ceremonies as are involved with official visits, but well...

I am sure some feminists (and perhaps not only feminists) will be outraged by our comments on the president of Argentina, a male politician is never judged by his looks but it seems to be the only thing we focus on with president Fernandez de Kirchner. And although people are free to express their opinions about looks it might be better not to use so much degrading language.

I find the comments on the President of Argentina's appearance insulting and derogatory.

Maybe if she would wore different top? hmmm It's hard to see the golden collar.
Comparing I must say that no matter of present gala dress she looks better than on previous visits.
http://cache4.asset-cache.net/xc/304...5A1E4F32AD3138 2003

Btw. if she identified herself "with the Evita of the hair in a bun and the clenched fist before a microphone" so maybe she should take some of Evita's gala fashion sense too. http://www.solesdigital.com.ar/archi...a_Peron_02.jpg

I love no matter of recycle Letizia's gown.
Sofia was little to black as for me but elegant as always.

On what time will be todays receipt on El Pardo Palace?

Some of your opinions about President of Argentina are on the edge.

Please, It's important that you express your criticism carefully. Insulting comments have been deleted. Criticism is acceptable; insults and flames are not. Vulgar language is not allowed in the Forum.

To me, all ladies were great last night, however Letizia is, by far, the best.
Her gown, her hair, her make-up, her face expression...all very beautiful.
She looked especially pretty and happy.

Now I think they are different tops. It's not possible to alter an off-shoulder top to a normal V-neck, the colors look different too. Perhaps she got another top to go with the sash comfortably. I'm glad she didn't have the original top altered since I really like the original one. If she keeps herself in good shape like her mom-in-law, she can wear this gown for the next 40 years .

The one-shoulder gown probably looks odd with the sash. One-shoulder style is very in right now, hopefully she gets the chance to wear it soon. However I will not place my hope too high since it was from Varela.
