It is called, "The Niarchos".
The greeck Stavros Niarchos gave as a wedding gift to then Princess Sofia of Greece a suite of Tiara, necklace, and earrings made of rubies and gold.

They are very similar, Letizia and Carla! They ahve very similar shape bodys and we can see that in those pictures taken behind! I think that Letizia could have accompain the visit to the museum, I think it would have been nice for Carla to have one more person around her and the conversation would be different!

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?
