she has used the same top twice before, once with a wonderbra and another one without it:

the first one was in the visit of the President of Peru, the second one I don't remember, another State Visit

This time: nice top, earrings and the necklace is wow!, but those bracelets are a big no no
the skirt: the others she wore before suit better the top than this one, which looks a bit too dull for such a vibrant top, much better something more colourful

I don't mind the style of the skirt, but patterns and color are ugly and mismatched with the top. She hadn't been to a gala for so long, I'm disappointed that she didn't buy a new one-piece dress this time ?
I have never liked this Valentino gown of the Queen, one of the worst of her Valentino collections.

Oh, I agree with you, the skirt adds the fullness that she needs, but the top accentutates her frailness, for lack of a better word. She is much too thin for so much open on top.

I'm likely the only one that sees all three to be slightly different. But of these two above. The shoulder straps look different. And I doubt that it is just that she is simply wearing them up over her shoulder and then down on her arms. Now for tonight's dress, if you look at any close-ups of this bodice it seems the material is different, I think I noticed some slight gathering. There is something more going on then there was with the other two bodices. But that is just my opinion. And I could only pick up on it from ANP pics.

Hmmm ... Letizia is wearing a tiara so it must be a gala dinner, correct? I am very disappointed with her attitude. Recycled top (not just once) together with some boring or even cheap looking skirt ... doesn't Felipe's budget allow a proper gala dress for his wife? It looks like she or whoever did an unloving mix-and-match job without any deeper reflection. Make up is nice and her hair is properly done but I bet if there was no tiara Letizia had shown up with her usual wash and go hair.

As much as she loves her daughters, she could have left the bracelets at home for this evening only as there is a total mismatch with the rest of the "heavy" jewellery.

The first gala dinner after 1 1/2 years ... no idea why Letizia missed another chance to sparkle. No effort, just dull and uninspired.

A close up of the skirt would be nice. So far it looks like a rug but I'd be thrilled if there are any pics that prove otherwise

Dear Paty, if you are here Weirimage please: upon 26 pics about the gala dinner 25 of the Princess of Asturias whom some look absolutly beautifull, but as you know the size of the shots are too little to see the details!!!!

obviously princess has decided to spend most of her money on jewellery and hardly on her clothes unless it is a very very very important event for her.

I think that the jewellery wore by the Princess of Asturias this night belong to the Royal Familly of Spain. The earrings were belonging to the Countess of Barcelone and we can suppose that the necklace too, doing a whole of Rubies and diamonds set estupendous because discret!

Why does everyone think that she is taking one top and putting it with another skirt? That just does not make sense to me. Possibly I am the strange one. But this is a royal family. Do you really think they are that hard up that they make the wife of their crown prince and likely one of the most looked at women in Spain recycle the bodice of a dress and stick it with a different skirt now 3 different times. Sorry, but I am not convinced at all. This would have to be the cheapest royal family in the world if that were the case. She has not even been a princess that terribly long(only 3 and a half years) and some really believe that it is likely she has recycled stuff that often. I'm sorry but I see some differences in all three.

That's what I saw, the same top in 3 occasions. Maybe the light made it look a little different, but it was the same top IMO. Spain doesn't have a royal finance sytem as other countries, which heavily favors the crown princely couple. It's really up to the King to distribute the money. We have no idea how much money Letizia gets for her clothes. I never understand why she didn't ask Caprile to make her a few more gowns and cocktail dresses (I love the cocktail dress she wore at the wedding of Beltran and Laura). Perhaps she couldn't afford Caprile's clothes most of the time, had to wear Varela's cheap clothes.

The ladies looked elegant and I think Letizia is allowed to be a bit tired seeing she had so many engagements these last view days.
