Wonderful dress, and queen Letizia looks so good on it, one of her best evening looks.

The mismatch between the President and his spouse is interesting. Letizia looked nice.

There were some weird wardrobe choices tonight... like vice-president Soraya Saez de Santamaría, for example
http://i2.wp.com/www.semana.es/wp-co...2C960px&zoom=1

As a curiosity, Semana tells us the dinner was in charge of El Celler de Can Roca, which has been named this year (for the second time) the best restaurant in the world. The chef, Joan Roca, was at the Palace's kitchens. He's quite a very well-known face for the average Spaniards, btw, as many other colleagues, mainly because there is quite a boom of cooking talent shows on TV such as Masterchef that have show high cuisine to all us and have made our most succesful chefs like the Roca brothers true national celebrities

The menu was gazpacho with ice-cream, mousse and olives; mackerel with pickles, eggs and sea bass and a dessert called "Suspiro limeño" (Lima's sight) that I guess was created in honour to the visiting country by El Celler de Can Roca's confectioner, Jordi Roca, also one of the very best in the worls. I've seen him a lot of times as guest on Masterchef and his desserts are real artworks Like this one, that seems just to beautiful to be eaten.

I loved Queen Letizia's classic style. She will never look like a candelabra. Her style is classy and shows her confidence as a strong, elegant woman.

You know, I think someone should just take this picture, or this one, photoshop there the Order of Charles III instead of the Peru Order and voilà, there you have the missing Gala official portrait

I can't honestly think on any posed photography that would look better, with the super regal deep blue dress standing out over the magnificent golden/red setting.

Was there any reason why the President of Peru didn't wear white tie at last nights gala?

He leads a left wing political party. Maybe wearing white tie does not fit in his worldview.

Queen Letizia looked gorgeous in that dress, especially with the colour of the Peruvian sash! The sash was much too wide for her slight frame, but that is nothing she can help. You don't argue about the width of a sash when you are offered an order.

If my count is correct, this is already the 3rd incoming State Visit from a South American country. Due to the close relationship between Spain and South America I expect that we'll see more SVs from that region in the near future.

I don't think that it is the first time that a staunch Republican refuses to wear white tie. But I'm not sure if the president of Peru did it for this reason.

It's the fourth State Visit from Latin America, including King Juan Carlos last state visit from Mexico. The four countries (Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Peru) make up the Pacific Alliance. While I'm sure we'll see a lot of state visits to and from Latin America due to political, business and cultural relations perhaps for the next months we'll see visits from a different continent after finishing with the Pacific Alliance.

Thank you AnaC. I didn't think about the Pacific Alliance but counted the State Visits since the accession of King Felipe.

I fail to see what republicanism has to do with white-tie as dresscode. As the perfect republican presidents of Iceland, Finland, Portugal, Italy, Austria, the United States, etc. showed, being a republican and wear white tie goes well.
