I don't like Letizia's outfit at all, she looks insignificant to be honest.
Love the Queen and Elena's outfits, Rostropovich's daugther dress is pretty also and Cristina as lady as usual.

I don't like the Queen's outfit. It looks very pajama-like. And Cristina looks like she's going to work. Letizia is too black. Of course as always Elena is still the best dressed.

I think it's joke, isen't it: lace top + evening pants = insignificant
normal jacket + evening pants = Lady

Very strange appreciation

In fact to be honest - because generally speaking we aren't, isen't it? - all the women of the Spain Royal Family were a little bite "insignificant", the Queen with her majorquin pygama () the Princess with a reapetiting model - she wore it for the top at least five or six time; the pants I can't say because it's evening pants that you can match up with other top. The Infanta Elena, the same, reapeting model black and white in particular just after the summer when she is stil tan, as usual elegant, if one of the Infantas is a Lady - strange again observation- it will be certainely Elena!
Cristina grey jacket with black lapels and black pants, outfit yet wore too many time, not very "Lady" but young relaxed woman going to theater with distinguished friends it means not the evening of the gala!

Please, who were the women to be feast, who the Spain Royal Family, in particularly the women have to honour the widow of the Maestro Rostropovitch and his girls.

Yesterday night, itwas not a beauty race, it was tribute for a great friend of the Spain Royal Family who was in mourning for his lost. Can you imagine one second all the women of the Spain Royal Family in other colors that the black, white, grey and as the Queen the violin? Can you imagine that the Princess and the Infantas have to be particularly glittering when the widow of a great maestro and his daugthers were at the first rank of the royal balcony near the Kings?

May be we have to analyze the outfits according the dress code of an event, it's a supposition!

I don't like Letizia's pants, which made the whole outfit too dark. She had a beautiful skirt to go with this lace top, why didn't she wear the skirt ? Try hard not to stand out because the other women in the SRF wore pants ? All the women in the SRF looked too casual compared to the family of Rostropovich.
I'm surprised that the King was there too. Doesn't he not like classical music ?

For that I agree with you. I add that they look as if they have decided to be a little back from the Rostropovitch family as if it was this family who has to be feast by giving the honour to be the most elegant, the Spain royal Family has to be more discret

To me being a lady have a little to do with wearing pants or not, Jackie O was a lady even in shorts, maybe we don't give the word the same meaning in English as in Spanish, I'll give you however that maybe it wasn't the best word to use at that moment or to describe what I wannted to said.

To me, again, to me, she looks insignificant with such a black outfit, almost lost on the picture; she's already petite she dosn't need to accentuate that, that outfit did nothing for her, I wish she would of use more color, maybe a long shirt or a fine dress, maybe a pashmina, I don't know, something more elegant and interesting that set her appart as the rest of the ladys did or as we do when we have an special occasion and I'm not saying that as a bad critic, when she wore the beautiful dress on Palma (the bubble one) I'd praise her, I was expecting something in that cord for tonight. The Queen, Cristina and Elena were more, let say regal, more into the ocassion, the Queen outfit is a beautiful one for the Queen's age, not bored, a beautiful fabric, the Queen is really into those kind of tunics and pants, she has a lot of versions but they are "happy" clothes yet very suitable for the ocassions, to my test, Elena was the best but of course she's a very elegant woman wit a great body and body posture that looks good even on flats and a t-shirt and that helps.

I loved it when Letizia wore this lace top with a black skirt. I don't care so much for the pants because it loses some of the femininity of the top. But I'm glad to see her active again these past few days aside from the vacation pictures.
Elena looks great in her white and black outfit. It's a classic combination.

The most elegant women of the night were Rostropovich's daughters; beautiful, classy, elegant

Queen Sofia's been using that pijama/tunic thing for a while now, and even if I'm not crazy about it, it kinda suits her in a way

Elena looks awesome as always, when she doesn't overdo the outfits or goes too "baroque" she's the best dressed lady of the SRF

I really like Cristina's jacket (giving some light to her outfit) and the pants compliment it perfectly

Letizia's jacket is nice, would have been nicer with a skirt, but since it was a long skirt/pants kind of occassion, I guess that's why she wore pants (long skirts and the jacket wouldn't look good on her since she's short, gowns are another thing ) she should have chosen another color combination, she's naturally thin but black makes her look even thinner (as it does for every women and thank God for that! ) and she's the only woman wearing sandals (which are more suited for skirts and dresses than for pants, she likes air on her toes , when she's not wearing sandals, she's wearing open-toe heels), all the other women were wearing closed heels; she doesn't look entirely bad, but since she's petite in comparison with the rest of the family, she shouldn't have chosen a color that wouldn't allow her to stand out somehow, she looks almost "not-there" because of that

Rania, The word insignificant, is not the right word to describe letizia's Outfit.Please just say she doesn't look Elegant.That's the word I think you want to say.Saying she's insignificant means she's a nobody.And if she's a nobody then we all here are a nobody.I just saying this to you in a friendly way.And my opinion on how they all look? They all look Cheap for that event.They look like they went out for dinner.I think Letizia was more Elegant the day she took leonor to daycare.

In my opinion Elena was best dressed. I don't like Letizias outfit.
