Thanks for finding these first pics, LadyFinn!
I love this dress on Letizia; the same goes for the Tiara!
I was crossing my fingers we would get to see this one after she wore the wedding tiara during the last gala!

I don't think there are that much negative comments about Letizia or Sofía dressing badly. Having a look through the latest events threads I have the feeling most people were quite satisfied with the outfit choices (at least, I was ).

I don't think someone made a negative comment about the Spanish Royal Family. I only saw some comments by members who didn't like the OUTFITS worn by the Queen and Princess. Do we need to say "Haleluja" and "Amen" to every outfit worn by them? I don't think so.
I don't think we should all praise their outfits. That's not what I'm saying at all!!!! We are all from different walks of life and look at things through different sets of eyes. It's just that I have tired of the same old comments concerning this family. I have stayed away from their threads in recent weeks, because it's too frustrating to read the same thing over and over. Then today I decide what the heck I'll come take a look and what do I see well of course the same old comments. And what I mean by the same old comments is that it's the same comment just typed again and again in these threads. Possibly I should learn to take the sarcastic approach and applaud those owners of the comments for being oh sooooo creative with their terms.

As for tonight's dresses, I think I like Sofia's dress the best. She looks lovely! And so does the wife of the president. I also really like the colors in Letizia's dress and the green skirt is nice too. I'm sure this is a very eye catching dress in person, not sure the photos show it correctly. Also the waist area looks weird to me.

It's the same top & skirt altough the neckline is worn in a different way. I found it more sparkling last time, Letizia's overall look was much lovelier back then. It's a worthy gala dress though and a good thing that she went back to Caprile's designs even though it's a repeat. I think the Queen is best dressed, the First Lady looks lovely too.

I think how the sash was placed makes a huge difference. I like the first time much better, it makes the top stand out. The 2nd time, the first thing I saw is this ugly huge sash crossed her shoulder, it matches nothing with the dress. Wonder why Letizia doesn't have the same sash as Felipe or Sofia.
Overall this Caprile's gown is very nice, she can wear it forever (aka Sonja's yellow gown) .

This is a very nice gala gown Letizia is wearing, I like it a lot
One question though: how many gala dresses does she have? I think she must have a good collection of them, I guess the recycling she uses at the everyday acts caught up at the gala dinners
Recycling is not a bad thing, I just wish we can see her wearing something is not Varela

I think if someone wears large earrings, she should wear no necklace or a less prominent necklace and vice versa. Too mucg jewelry is very distracting.

May be I'm daltonian but for me it's not the same at all !

First in the cut!
Then in the color!

The second is contening more red and the design are quiet different.

It's like that that the tabloid press is doing!..... whithout to check! and with " préjugés"!!!

The whole outfit is very refined and regal. The Princess of Asturias wear with a great presence a gown which make me think at the "Renaissance" outfit. It's very original and as she is marvellously mak up in suave tons very in accordance with her gown the Princess of Asturias is absolutly exquisit this night.

It's true that I should see very well Letizia in a gown of Jean Louis, american stars designer of the 40 s, as for example Rita Hayworth in Gilda, but I fear it wouldn't be the place neither the occasion even if I'm sur that the Princess would be absolutly faboulous!

As usual, I should to say, the Queen absolutly perfect. All the details fantastic. The Queen Sofia knows very well that she fits her very well

I think it's the same top, the lighting made it look slightly different.

Most of Letizia's gowns are sleeveless, for the warm weather. I could only think of this long-sleeve red gown from Caprile, but it might not go well with sash. I think Letizia needs to buy a few good quality gala dresses from Caprile (he is still the best). Her body will likely remain the same no matter how many more kids she is going to have. Good quality gala dresses are actually good investment since she can wear them forever, just ask Queen Sonja .

What I highlighted is exactly my point, Letizia needs to stay away from Varela, and get some good clothing from Caprile, del Pozo, Palacio, and so many other good spanish designers

I like her the most when she's not wearing Varela, whose quality is a bit low if you ask me, specially for a Crown Princess; she can look good in almost everything and yet Varela manages to screw that up

May I to have a different opinion?

Whitout the color which is totally different the first one: green purplr; the second green red; the cut is different too: the first one is larger than the second one;

But that is totally different is the design even if it looks similar!

If you have the time to look at a little, it's absoloutly obvious:

It's the same jacket and the same skirt. The only difference is that she doesn't wear a petticoat underneath this time. That's why the skirt is much slimmer and the waist line looks a bit strange. The skirt was made with a petticoat. Letizia looks good. I second the opinion that she should get more Caprile gowns.

I like the jacket she wore in the morning but not the skirt. First, the wrapped skirt is way past its time. Second, I don't like the combo of dark jacket and light color skirt. A pair of charcoal gray pants would be so much better.

I agree, it doesn't look the same, but both tops are gorgeous. But I am not 100 % sure, maybe it is the lighting? The neckline looks different, too. But I LOVE the outfit, very regal.
I also really like the hairstyle.

Well I'm confused too - if the original was "straight" and this is a "V" neck - then surely there would be some kind of a wrinkle or crease in the fabric - I dont see how it could sit well both times...
But still, why have such similar tops, others would suit the skirt well too.

Lovely pictures, Letizia looked lovely so did the queen. I just love how Felipe tends to look at Letizia. Thanks for all the pictures.

The V-neck can be pulled straight as at the Russian gala. Her red top from Caprile had been worn either straight or down before. I think the color difference is due to the lighting.
