I've never seen the Sheika Mozah wearing a tiara!

I
am so disappointed in Letizia. Christina looks so polished and professional like the Queen in a beautiful outfit. Letizia looks like she is dressed up for a nice day of shopping. She was beautiful tonight at the gala dinner though! Sigh!!!!

What (or who) determines whether tiaras will be worn?

I'm extremely surprised Letizia wore an evening gown with bare shoulders. I thought that was a no-no when dealing with Muslim leaders or officials.

But the event is in Spain, not in Qatar. Rania wore sleeveless dresses in US or Europe, she probably would not do the same in Jordan.

Letizia has really lost her glam. Pretty dress, but she doesn't look like the Crown Princess of Spain, more like prom night! Not that anyone could out glam Mozah, she is incredible. The more covered up she is she just looks better....go figure!

I don't think it matters that the event is in Spain. In today's connected world, the images will be beamed back to Qatar. It's also about making your guests comfortable. I remember the Swedes were careful to cover up when the Jordanians made a state visit several years ago.

There's also a difference between a dress that is sleeveless (where just the arms are bare) and shoulderless (where the shoulders and arms are mostly or completely bare). Rania has worn one shoulderless dress that I can recall, but she did come under a lot of criticism at the time for doing so, even though she wore the gown in Spain.

Letizia, IMHO, has lost her glam! She dressed like she was ready to go to the office after the luncheon. The dress is not appropriate either...she is always trying too hard, and it does not seem to work. She needs someone to advise her what to wear PRONTO!

Why is Letizia's dress for the dinner inappropriate? Carla Bruni wore a strapless dress when the Emir of Qatar visited France in 2009. I don't think anyone criticized her for wearing it, and her dress even sat very low on her chest, much more "inappropriate" than Letizia's. I only read praises and adulation for Carla's style when she wore this dress.

The other woman was also wearing a strapless dress. So what makes it okay for Carla but wrong for Letizia to wear a dress that shows her shoulders?


I thought Letizia looked wonderful at the dinner. Her hairstyle was lovely and her make-up was perfect. She is one of those women who doesn't need to wear a lot of jewelry to look beautiful. Sheikha Mozah looked very nice, too.
