Actually, it is perfectly correct to use the word "handsome" to describe a woman, it's just not that common any longer. But there was a time when it was common to use the term for a woman as well as a man. The word is not exclussive to a man, rather is suggestive of a kind of dignified attractiveness.

Many thanks Lucys about your explantion on " handsome". As i'm not at all fluent in english, i'm checking my words in the compact Harrap's and i saw this word using for women but i wasn't sure it's possible to use it in the common language.


Interesting question : How many plaques the Prince unveil since he begun to work ???

She looked outstanding today! That color blue was a wonderful choice. Way to go yet again Letizia.

Yes, "handsome" can be used for women. It usually means something a bit different from "pretty". For a woman who looks "handsome", it means she looks good in a slick, non-fussy, professional and diginified way. So it's a good word for Letizia in her professional-looking pant suits.

i like her shirt on the first photo posted by lucys from Hola and yes, "handsome" can be an apt word to describe Princess Letizia. :)

I'm guessing Letizia would not like to hear herself described as "handsome". I think the more modern term for a good-looking woman who has an unfussy appearance is probably "attractive".

Yes, in this meaning Letizia looks very attractive to day with quiet informal dress more than usual in official acts. She seems very relaxed, Felipe too.

THE PRINCES IN 50 ANNIVERSARY OF THE NATIONAL PARK AIGüESTORTES

Madrid (EFE) .-The Princes of Asturias will preside today at the commemoration of 50 anniversary of the creation of Aigüestortes's national park, one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Pyrenees, in Lleida's province.
Don Felipe and Dona Letizia will visit the park, before presiding in Espot's Town hall at the acts of commemoration of this enclosure, placed in the regions that lived through the birth of the Romanesque art in the Middle Ages with the counties of Ribargorza and of Pallars. They were accompanied in this visit by the president of the Generalitat, Pasqual Maragall; the minister of Environment, Cristina Narbona, and the mayor of Espot, Agustín Perot, between other authorities.
