She looks way thin, and, as previously stated, the pants are way too long for her. Not a good choice. Too simple and not elegant, in my opinion. Higher heels perhaps would have been a better choice. Only an opinion!!!

i agree the greay suit wasn't a good choice. it didn't have a good cut: the jacket was too long and not feminine and the trousers made her look far to thin http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...8&d=1141657727
i was also surprised by purse and shoes, she normally combines them perfectly, but this time it didn't look good, black shoes with the beige-ish bag.

"When you see Doña Letizia, offer her a pack of garbanzos maragatos. She adores it. A good source of mine told me that she requests this product for the traditional Spanish stew". Thus the president of the Council of Castile and Leon, Juan Vicente Herrera, advised this morning one of the exhibitors in the Nourishing Fair 2006.


Sorry, but I don't know how do we call it in English... here's a photo of it:

Not at all, dear friend; I find the grey suit very simple but very elegant and in my opinion the jacket is very well cut. I don't understand talks about her slimness.It's her natural shape and thinking she have to wear suits for making her more fatter it's a very strange idea ! It's true that the grey pale color can make you thinner but I don't think it's the Doña Letizia's purpose. May be it's better when you are making in a day one go and return for an alimentary exhibition to wear Chanel suit or more sophisticated suit but I'm not convienced and the business woman's look is totaly adapted.
Letiza, already are making the proof when it's necessary she can be very refined and sophisticated; but today it was not Fashion's Exhibition.

I agree with you, according to the tv, the visit lasted 3 hours.

I found her grey suit both simple and elegant in taste - the jacket is well cut and tailored. She seem to be able to dress according to each event very well. She's a very classy lady!

It's exactly the definition of the Princess of Asturias's standards. Since her return to the active life she had a lot of official acts for them at each time she was wearing outfits very in accordance: gown; elegant dresses or coats for diners; suits with skirt and/or pants; coat more casual for the day. All to put in advantage her thin figure in elegant own way. I think is the true definition of the specific style of a woman

yes, there are chickpeas, but from a special region in leon, a province at the south of asturias. chickpeas are very common in spanish cooking and letizia confessed more than once that she likes eating stewed foods (chickpeas, lentils, beans...). the spanish way of cooking them is also very good, i personally love those kind of foods as well.

although i didn't like the outfit as i said before, i agree completely with adelaide: it was a formal event, and letizia dressed as she should. she prooved more than once that she can dress stuningly for a gala or evening event, but this was not the ocassion. it was a professional event and as such what she wears is completely correct.

There is nothing wrong with being thin. It's great, actually. There are, however, better looking suits that she has worn in the past...that's all. The suit is lovely, but perhaps it is not her size. It's too big, and, therefore makes her look thin. Not that thin is a bad thing, but if we are discussing clothing, it is okay to say that something makes you look too thin or too big.

She is really very thin now, she must eat a little bit more...or wear another type of clothes.

I dont think she is too thin. I think she looks fine, her normal self. She has always been a thin person.
