Well, I must say that I actually LOVE the leather pants with the boots for myself, but I totally agree that they´re inappropriate for a princess in such a formal event. Besides, I quite like the jacket, very elegant and stylish worn with the scarf, but I think the whole look is a bit mismatched: elegant and formal top part and casual and too modern bottom part.

I don't know in what universe leather pants are "fashionable" for a business/official ocassion when you are way into your thirties.


Probably just :
"I am going to dress simple , i am from middle class, i married a Prince OK, i am the future Queen ok, but i dress simply for going to work, i am not a model, not an actress on red carpet i am middle class woman going to work, like millions spanish women everyday going at work, you like the syle of some of them, you dislike the style of others "...
same for Letizia, she dresses herself with her taste, her desire of confort she doesn't want to be stunning or spectacular every days her message is clear I think

She doesn't have to be "stunning or spectacular", as you said ikram, I think she just has to be appropriate and be aware that, whether she likes it or not, she is the future Queen and although she may like leather pants, all the media attention is focused on her. She just has to be elegant and appropriate, not too much to ask to such a beautiful woman like her

I cant imagine millions of Spanish women go to work in leather pants and if so I wonder what their profession might be

This was a business event with the advisory board of Prince of Girona foundation and I have yet to see a woman who would turn up to a business meeting in leather pants and biker boots in everyday life ... maybe once and never again because her boss would sack her on the spot.

I like the leather pants plus long jacket look, very chic, a bit too stylish for a business meeting though.

Leather pants were probably not for the occasion, but definitely not the age issue. These days a 40-year-old can have a young body for leather pants or leather skirts.
It could be cold inside. The woman on the right wore a coat too.

Agree! when it is necessary to be stunning she is the best...
I´m happy that she can represent her country very dignified with normal street brands...but inside I would love to see her with an Elio Berhanyer master piece...she could be terrific

It is obvious that Crown Princess Letizia's trendy ensemble stood out among other attendees of this meeting. If she likes to wear leather trousers, that is fine. At the least the trousers fit her well, whereas other pieces of clothes from Spanish designers leaves much to be desired.

leather pants, leather skirts, high heels are very fashionable in Spain now...maybe we are tacky or maybe we are more advanced in fashion trends than other countries...

I love Elio Berhanyer, not a single designer in Spain now is coming close to his work IMO. If I were Letizia, he would be my first choice. I wonder why Letizia hadn't worn a single piece from his collection. Maybe someone from Zarzuela didn't/doesn't like him. Not long ago, he had an article criticizing Sofia and Elena for prefering foreign brands.

elegance is a so personnal notion ...for a lot of people here she doesn't seem elegant today, for me she is...simple and elegant...because for me Elegance is very much more than just a wardrobe topic

What a look. I really wish I could say anything nice about it, but no! The jacket may be okay, but the leather trousers and boots? Apart from that it absolutely doesn't suit her IMO, I find it inappropriate for a Princess. Horrible outfit, I'm sorry.

I agree completely. what was she thinking wearing it to a hearing. Where was the prince's head when he saw her? Why did he not ask her to change her pants? Maybe the outfit is good for a private function, not a public one.

Leti is my fav, but lately something has happened to her dress sense.

Cool

The pants and boots are totally inappropriate for this meeting. They're best left for shopping or very casual outing especially the pants. I don't think we'll see any other Princess showing up for an official function in leather pants. Mathilde has worn a leather skirt before and it looked classic on her. Leather pants....leave them in the closet if there's an official function.

I disagree. Spain isn't more or less advanced in fashion trends then many other European country, imo. Many countries are lining with the leather trend. You can find leather pants/skirt in every fashion store. However you see them on young women on a night out with friends (like Annie_S said). I don't remember seeing leather clothes on any business woman or woman at work though.
Imo it's not appropriate for Letizia's position, age and the event she atteded.
