Definitively, Schlesser´s job is marvellous, he´s one of the best Spanish designers nowadays. I wish she wore something by Annibal Laguna, I think he also has great desings.

She definitely can. But, what I am saying is, why become a patron of something that already has enough patrons worldwide. Why not continue to do what you are doing (wearing Spanish designs) except maybe branching off to other Spanish designers, some up and coming ones and put them on international stage or at least Spanish stage, like she did with Varela.

I do indeed remember how stunning Diana looked in Prada when visiting that country. And what a boost not only to the economy that was as well as the designer but what a clever piece of public relations for both countries. I believe a smart, good-looking Princess like Letizia could very well do the same and look smashing to boot!

I don´t understand how other princess can wear a whole Prada wardrobe like RH Princess Mary or Dior and Gucci like Queen Rania.

Letizia is more coherent and logic
She's more coherent and logical because of her clothing choices? I think her choices are anything but lately She does have an important role and it would be nice to see her dress to reflect that role rather than dressing in clothes that are ill-fitting and would look better on an 18 year old.

I'm not sure about the brown, but over all, she looks ok.

With all this discussion about foreign( to Spain) designers I believe that Letizia should wear clothes that suit her and her position and above all she should be satisfied that she looks the very best she can, that is in itself a compliment to Spain. If going to a function or ceremony which is promoting Spain, which is more important? What she is doing or what she is wearing?
Little unknown designers? She can´t afford to do this, if she looked dreadful in an outfit made by one of these, she would be criticized and so would the designer.
I believe that a designer has to make a name for him/herself before designing clothes for a future Queen, but then that is my own opinion.
Someone look bad in Valentino? That is something I have definitely missed out on.

Personally I haven't always agreed with what is said sometimes as far as expectations on Letizia's sense of fashion. I cannot fathom what it is to be presentable to her audience and countrymen as a ruling human. The spectrum of what is possible, favorable, or understandable as intellectual or cultural can range and be vast. With the many influences and introductions to concepts and outlooks, one can in a stature such as Letizia is in, be amazed and enthralled with so many experiences, expectations, and advice. She is in a plateau all her own and in particularly from the country of Spain. We have impressions of what she may look best as but the environment sometimes calls one's attention to favorable attire and or particular choice. It's fun for me to gather here because I see an emblem to the important past being represented by the Royals and because everyone who posts is a delight to follow and understand.

I think Letizia can do no wrong. Maybe it's because she looks so well or maybe she really cares to present herself and Spain so well, but I think her persuasion carries her to realm after realm of sincere love and regard. No matter what she chooses I hope she and the King perfect their lives to revel. Good luck in all that. May their destiny be free and a spell.

And it is indeed subjective on your part or anyone's part. Fashion is a relative term. Just now you stated that you don't like Karl Lagerfeld's work (btw, is that what you said, because that's what I interpreted)and that one can never go wrong with Valentino and YSL, which is subjective as well. I have seen Maxima in some horrendous Valentino designs (again that is my view, so its subjective).

Also I can make the argument that history has "judged" Chanel as well and yet they are not on your list of designers. So, what I am trying to say is, subjectively, you can say that Valentino and YSL are the best but that doesn't mean that they really are, there are no facts to that matter. They work in an industry where "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." So, what you might like such as Valentino and YSL, I might dislike (which I incidentally do, Valentino that is, YSL heels I lust after)

Btw, I don't think I have to PM you anything. I thought we're having a polite discussion about our differing opinions. I think as long as we can continue to discuss without being impolite or attacking each other, we can have the discussion on the forums.
Ok, no need to PM me. I just didn't want us to go off topic.

No, you didn't misinterpret what I said this time. It's true: I can't compare Lagerfeld's rags to a Valentino gown or an YSL suit, for example. History has judged Coco Chanel and yes, she was an accomplished designer. But Lagerfeld's work disgraces and dishonours Chanel's memory and work. On the other hand, there's not a single piece designed by Valentino that could be called 'horrendous'. One can say that this or that isn't his/her cup of tea, but 'horrendous' - I don't think so.

I'm afraid I'm off topic already, so let me add this: if Letizia or any other royal lady wears Valentino's or anyone else's clothes once in a while, this doesn't instantly make her his/her patron.

I really like the top half of the outfit; the brown coat is nice and business like. The scarf I like, but I wish she'd taken it off during the meeting as it looks too casual. Now, to the bottom half, I think skinny girls can totally work the leather pants/tights look, but IMO it should be confined to girls night out, or private parties and not to business meetings by anyone, let alone a princess. As for the boots, she could have worn them with a pencil skirt/blouse or a skirt suit, like the lady on the left of Felipe has done.

I must say I like her outfit, especially the leather pants :-).
The only problem is, that shes a princess. So, a good outfit for a normal person, but a bad outfit for a princess.

I don't know why you say that a leather pants is not appropriate for a princess! In that case there's nothing wrong! she wears those with a jacket and a scarf so it's a very classic outfit with a modern touch!

I agree with you.
The pants and boots just make her look too much like a biker.

Apart from that: I don't think that leather pants suit her.
I like the boots.

This kind of skinny leather trousers - or pants, as you call it - is very fashionable this season, but I don't like this particular look on a princess either. I absolutely love the black riding boots - simple and timeless. Again, boring jacket! Besides, brown and black don't match at all...
