I have to say I don't get the fascination and admiration for CP L's working wardrobe. I think she always looks neat, she always look appropropriate, she is a tiny woman so she always looks slim! but the constant variation on pencil skirt (and to the knee - hardly cutting edge fashion) and jacket-style top gets really dull, hardly redeemed by just using a kalediscope of unfashionably bright colours. Matching shoes and beige stockings - it's hardly riveting stuff.
She looks stunning in her white pants suits, because they are unusual and a little more interesting. Would be nice to see her try a little more variation - I would guess she isn't actually trying to be a fashion icon. Which isn't such a bad thing - I am just not sure why everyone is insistent on admiring her for her clothes.
I admire her for the relentless schedule she and the CP have followed since they returned from honeymoon. While CP Mary IMO is far more fashionable and fashion-conscious, she hasn't carried out nearly the same number of engagements!
I am sick and tired of seeing this ugly jacket on Letizia. it makes her look so dull. I know she's trying her best not to overshadow the Royal Family, but for crying out loud, the wife of the Crown Prince of Spain should dress better than this. She might end up being overlooked. I think she needs better fashion advisors around. And she's repeating her outfits too often.
I know its bad to make comparisons but, CP Mary of Denmark runs fashion miles around Letizia. It's only rarely that I see a fashion faux pas from Mary; all too frequent for Letizia. It's a pity, Letizia so beautiful. I'm sure the House of Borbon is
I disagree. I think that Letizia' style fits her very well. I wouldn't look forward to her changing her style if I were you. It most likely will not happen and doesn't need to, IMO.
I haven't liked everything that I've seen Letizia wear, but my opposition was based mostly on color choices. I feel that Letizia makes very good fashion choices. The cuts and styles that she chooses for herself are excellent, IMO. She doesn't overdo it. I wouldn't base it solely on not wanting to attract too much attention and seem too extravagant, but on the fact that she prefers simple and clean lines and clothes that are tailored, simple, but still elegant.
Letizia, honestly doesn't need much to make her look good, IMO. She actually reminds of Mette-Marit of Norway in that respect. Many people say that M-M dresses too plainly, as they do about Letizia, but really do women who are that stunning, with great skin and bone structure really need a lot to make them look good? I would have to say, "no." It just isn't necessary. The truth is that if they were to pile on the frills, makeup, big jewelry and everything else, they would look weighted down and far too over done.
Letizia does a very good job of wearing very finely tailored clothing and adding just the right amount of dazzle with her accessories. She wears great shoes and handbags. Her makeup and her are also always perfect and flatter her face and what she is wearing at the time. I think that she looks wonderful and she should keep doing what she's doing-defining her own style and not comparing herself to any other Princesses or public figures. I wish that all people in general, especially women could get that. You can't always wear what other people wear or do what they do. You can't always wear what is trendy. You have to find colors and styles that suit your body, skin tone, height, etc. and then go with it. Add little touches here and there and create your own personal style. Great style icons never followed trends, they set them. And, no one ever told them what to wear! :)
I couldn't have said better Isabel. Letizia hasn't changed her style, you just have to look at the pictures of her as a journalist to see that her style have always been minimalistic, she knows exactly what flatters her figure (though she can make some mistakes here and there), she doesn't overdo makeup (at her first solo act she had a little more on and it was the first thing everyone noticed).
I guess that people nowadays still remembers "Diana's style" and maybe think that all princess should dress somewhat like her.
I particularly find really interesting this variety of styles among the princesses (not only the CPs, but them in general) and I think it would be really boring if them all would wear the same king of clothes (as if an uniform for a princess would be instituted).
And, besides, what I think that should really matter isn't the clothes she wear, but the hard work she's been doing for her country.
