I don't defend the platform shoes ( I haven't liked many of them so far) but I think she just wants to reduce the difference of height between her and Philipe...

Letizia was the one princess who wanted to be recognized for something else than looks. Six years later she is a fashion trendsetter for the spanish media and the only CP with a confirmed plastic surgery.

Women in high profile positions who dont want to be recognized for their looks only have one chance: they have to dress "uniform", similar to men in suits. QEII is perfection in that sense, always wearing similar classic suits in bright colours, so people can see her from a distance. Plus, as a royal, making use of her jewellery. Queen Sofia walks on a similar path, classical suits, same hairdo for years, see Queen Beatrix, see Princess Royal etc etc etc. German chancellor Angela Merkel wears the same kind of costumes all the time, same hairdo, same jewellery.

What I want to say is that only those who are strong enough to implement their own style without running after the latest trends and dont mind being labelled boring or old fashioned by the mags that want to make money will be recognized for what they do, not for how they look.

Letizia is world famous for walking up the stairs next to Carla Bruni in a re dress, not for what she has done in her function as CP of Spain.

The Armani suit was widely critizised in Spain, with an huge fashion industry paying their taxes to support the country, as is completelly logical in my opinion...
She is a great woman, a hard worker and an intelligent woman that had understood real problems in Spain and new roles for the Monarchy, that was restored in Spain 35 years ago, and it is still very fragile!
I appreciate your comments princechermed.

The grey suit looked very flattering but the color did her no good, it was too silver/grey for her IMO. loved the hair but a bit borings eeing it a lot at daytime events and at some evening events.

I don't see anything wrong with the grey suit. It looks nice and professional. I'm glad she used a different colour to go with it other than the usual white or black.

I like the grey dress. This kind of dresses suit her figure a lot IMO.

It's a very pretty dress. I liked it the first time, like it still. I even like this shade of grey

Yes, the cut utterly underlines her model-like figure but I don't know why she insists on the gray color so much...But yes, this hue does not look very tragic... I like the shoes like the last time.

Maybe it's her fall / winter colour of choice ?

The detail of the dress looks pretty indeed, but overall a bit too grey.
I don't think grey is the best colour for her and I will never like those shoes.

I am tired of seeing her in dull grey. I think it is time to add some color. And it is definitely time to change her style of shoes... (I know that I am dreaming, but at the very least, buy some New shoes?)

This is the perfect look! Letizia could be model, if she wouldn't be royal, and these are types of dresses that enhance model's slim body and good posture. I'm model, our agents always say we must wear these dresses and fix our hair like that, because everything is perfect and so amazing! Ankle boots look more beautiful on slim legs, like Letizia's legs. Everything is great, I wouldnt change nothing in this look.

I dont like the pants at all. Skinny pants look horrible on Letizia, wide legged pants are much better.
Strange posture:

I agree. The skinny pants really are not a good look on her. They bring whatever outfit she has on down a notch and makes her look way too casual. The jacket is very pretty.
