That skirt is either from the curtains or the furniture, is UGLY
this was her big comeback to full gala attire, why didn't she seize it?

Maybe she along with Zarzuela didn't think it was a big deal since this state visit is not as high profile as the ones of Russian, Chinese or Portugese President (I know Letizia had missed the last two). No matter what, this skirt is plainly ugly, she is better off wearing one of her old skirts.
I like her hair though. Hopefully she will have a nice hairdo at the PoA awards this Friday.

First the dress is not ugly only because it's not spectacular. Then, the whole of the complete gown plus the rubies and diamonds set - earrings, necklace and bracelet- is matching with discretion.

No for the curtain because in fact it's a refined silk satin with geometric design. If all the skirt/dress/gown with geometric design will be curtain it would be many curtain in this field.

But I agree it's not so spectacular that I would to see it egoïstiquely!

If you are watching to the color of the sashe for the Princes you can understand it's a low profile state visit because they don't wear one of the Chekoslovaquia as the Kings.

How I miss the Infantas in gala dinners, they and their husbands give some style and old-fashioned elegance to these acts

the earrings and necklace are a match and are simply divine, very beautiful, but she screws the effect with the golden bracelets, which do not suit the rest of the ensemble at all

the top is ok to me, but the skirt is awful, it's just a matter of taste I think

I don't care if this was a low-key state dinner, she should have worn something more fitting to her role, most of what she owns looks cheap, Varela clothing isn't really that good and this matched set (even if the top isn't Varela, the skirt as it is so bad looks to be Varela) doesn't really...well...match

I find Letizia's dress very nice. The two-piece with the patterned skirt is very elegant. Red is a very good color on her and the darker skirt brings out the elegant top.

I love this picture! She looks gorgeous. I'm not so sure about the skirt, but the top and jewlery are fabulous. Thank you all for the wonderful pics.

Woman on the left (Telma) - she is not a royal so she may be forgiven that she does not demonstrate appropriate table manners although in this case she is doing much better as her sister as she seems to be interacting with other people on the table.

Woman on the right (Cristina) - it's a caption made in a split of a second. As Telma, she seems to be in the middle of a conversation and doing a gesture, probably pointing at something.

ImageShack - Hosting :: is15681350ei2.png

Very different to Letizia's gesture, who is neither in a conversation nor interacting etc. She is just plain bored, resting her chin on her fist with elbow on the table as if she was asking herself when this annoying dinner would finally be over and she could go to bed. Very very unprofessional to allow a pic like that to be taken. It's a gesture of a defiant five-year-old but not of a CP at a gala dinner.

I won't compare Letizia to Cristina or Elena because there is no point and it's not fair but looking back at some appearances not only from recent weeks there is no question who was born into royalty and who wasn't.

Where has all her energy and drive gone? Letizia used to be a perfectionist, what has become of her. Too much going on with two daughters and royal duties and not enough staff to support her? Too bad as she could do so much better.

I think she's allowed to be bored, but she's not allowed to show it, it's all a matter of image

Excellent post DoM, as usual, you nail it on the head

I like the ladies outfits, especially the jacket of princess Letizia, it´s very beautiful, so are her shoes.
Queen Sofia looks good and I like Letizia's outfit too. Very classy, nice shoes. Top underneath could be more suitable (seems to be the same one from her solo event) and sadly, almost as usual, all is ruined by the terrible hair.

I don't think it was just a split of a second that both Telma and Cristina had their elbows on the table. Letizia was probably listening to the speech (long speeches from both sides). She could be concentrating herself, although I do wish she didn't put her elbow on the table.
Actually this was a very unflattering of Cristina, it seemed she had her middle finger pointing something due to the camera angle, not royal at all.

To be honest, unless they had tiaras on the head, I doubt people could tell who was royal or not, let alone who was born into royalty . Cristina or Elena also had their bad hair days, they usually looked better at night events, so did Letizia.

She needs a hair stylist. She looked lovely at the gala dinner (IPA has the best pictures) when her hair was done despite the ugly skirt.

Considering that the last time she wore a high-profile foreign designer she was vilified in the press, online etc. is it any surprise she sticks to Varela?!

It's such hypocricy as well, the rest of the family wears whoever they like with little or no consequence.

While the double standards exist Letizia will continue to wear Vaerla.
