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.

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.

the white drawstring top is in fact separate to the dress, I saw it in the shops this weekend by coincidence and it is by Azzedine Alaia. It was not very nice on the hangar and cheap looking considering how expensive his stuff his, however somehow Carla carried it off. Interesting how the other first ladies started wearing Alaia to public functions since Michelle Obama wore his black dress in France recently and also his black belt that she wears all the time on top of her various outfits.

question

Excuse me if this has been asked and answered before. If so let me know where and I can read it.

Why is Letizia's sash blue and the rest of the Spainsish royals wore a red one?

The king, Queen and Prince Felipe are wearing the order of the Légion d'Honneur and the Princess the order of the National Merit

More info: www.legiondhonneur.fr ( in frech, but you can see the diferents orders)

I'm happy the French couple graced their excellencies with this formal visit. Indeed all the many attires and ensembles were beautifully looking. I so enjoy all these pictures of the different occasions and events. I especially liked when Queen Sofia and Carla went to see a museum. I thought they both dressed attractively. It can be addicting and time consuming to follow all that gets displayed. Worth all the moments and time. To see them all in person must be quite the thrill. I can only imagine. Thanks to all again for bringing us the many links.

Carla Bruni is very beautiful, and looks like she is enjoying her visit. She wore a sash to the gala dinner on the first night. What order is this? Was this just given to her in honor of this visit?

I think it is mentioned 3 postings above, unless that was a dinner on a different night

The day Carla met her match...How Spain's Princess upstaged the French First Lady | Mail Online

DM continues their coverage - for some reason they feel the need to bash Carla, kind of an anti-climax to when she ruled the tabloids during the State Visit to Britain last year.

My guess is that the author didn't even know who Princess Letizia was a few days ago and still wouldn't know if Carla hadn't travelled to Spain. Had she travelled to another country, someone else would have upstaged her (sorry but Sarah Brown obviously couldn't).

I do share the author's opinion on Letizia's face, she's turning into a Barbie doll:
Serene, intelligent and open. She reportedly had plastic surgery last year to eradicate wrinkles and fix her nose and chin, which accounts for the bland Barbie-ness of her features.

That's also the only part of the article I agreed with.
I can't for the life of me see that rounded bottom on Letizia's rakish frame. She is floating in her bandage dress while Carla is filling out her own outfit quite pleasantly and definitely has more curves than Letizia.

Thanks for that little reminder as to why I wouldn't touch the Mail with a bargepole. Accurate reporting has never been of their concern.

There's absolutely no evidence she had anything other than her nose done but then I guess it's a bit much expecting the Daily Mail to check their facts.
