all the British papers today were saying how Letizia outshone Carla! It was great to see the Spanish Royal Family in the British Press.

Juan Carlos didn't look too thrilled about the media circus of Carla meeting Letizia that really took away the real importance of this state visit. A quieter 2nd day would work better for him .

I think they both exude class, elegance, proper demeanor, intelligence, grace..and all the rest. This has to be one of the most glamorous of state visits I have seen in a long time..

The Italian ones say that Carla was more elegant (though Carla hasn't many fans in Italy, for many reasons, but they all agree she is always elegant and classy).

No comments on Carla Bruni's rather revealing dress (pictures 10 and 11). There would have been many criticisms if Letizia wore such a dress.

The Queen looks good in red, her dress and jewelry were stunning but of course she's the Queen, a lady of other generation and always on her very own style, and for Letizia I didn't like it, sorry, she's looking better lately but that dress is ugly IMO and has something weird on her behind, she tried to hard and the result was really really busy between the train, the tiara with that loose hair, orders, blasons, glitters, jewelry, makeup, you name it and of course those ugly shoes.
RaniaRocks, no need to be sorry. Everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion.

Yes, the dress was too revealing for me to be classy and elegant. From some of the photos I get the feeling that king Juan Carlos wasn´t very happy about the media fuss around Carla and Letizia.

Wearing a dress with a drawstring that looks like a piece of frayed rope on a state visit is very tacky, imo. And the hair was pretty bouffant.....

I would like to know also. Maybe a sign of a quite rebellion?

What's tacky about a simple but very elegant dress? And what's bouffant about this updo hairdo?

I think all ladies looked nice, but none of them looked spectacular. I don't get this whole "fashion-competition" thing. It's a stupid thing created by the media.

At least she can afford it....so why not for the pleasure of our eyes?

He is probably thinking that the importance of the visit has been eclipsed by the media fuss aoung Carla and Letizia. I don't blame him if he is not too happy about it.

I was refering to the blue dress she wore yesterday and the accompanying hairdo. It seems you misunderstood my previous post and seeing as I've already explained my view, I'm not going to bother doing so again.

Nope, but I do think it reveals a lot about an individual when their only method of countering an argument is to scream "jealousy". It reminds me of being in high school.....
