Back in the good old days when Letizia still looked professional at events, incl. State occasions and had her hair done professionally, was she ever critizised by the media of upstaging the Kings?

To me it seems the institution has worn her out after five, six years already, she looks plain bored and frustrated by all the limitations and the fact that the media is using her to sell papers by focussing on whatever she wears - ugly, nice, average, it doesnt matter. Therefore she doesnt make an effort any longer, there is no difference in the coverage about her.

She wasn't before, but it doesn't mean she wouldn't now. Recently even JC's biographer (Jose Luis de Vilallonga ) came out complaining about the Princes were overly exposed, monarchy should be more King, less Prince, blah blah according to JC's camp, a criticism full of nonsense.
The 1st picture was from early 2005, long time ago, the 2nd one was a tiara event, updo was pretty much expected for a tiara event.

Probably it is what she did .

The Pascua Militar is the day of Three Wise Men, and that is a problem when you have 3 and 5-year-old girls, who are very excited and nervous opening their gifts and playing with them. It is a bad day to have an official act at 12 a.m., I think the only concern they have is being able to arrive on time.

IMO Leztia's fashion of late reflects the somber Spanish economic crisis. I too miss her polished formal look-

If that were the case it would seem that the entire family would dress as she does and present themselves in a less polished way. But they don't.

I like the blue long skirt. The shiny jacket doesn't seem to go with it tho. Her hair looks better curled imo.

You don't see there are incredible double standards out there ? It started with Cristina's white Armani pantsuits (very similar to Letizia's) at her engagement with Inaki. On the other hand, I don't think Cristina or Elena has been well groomed all the time. Sometimes they looked like face not washed, I hope they were told to pluck their weed eyebrows.

I find that an excuse. Even if the economic crisis have effected the family, there are still decent outfits you can buy on budget but in Letizia's case its not that. She does not seem to be able to mix & match the right way, she is trying to be modern, fashionable & trendy but it's not working in her favor as she is going for the wrong pieces or trying a bit too hard. She can buy great pieces at Zara & Mango but she isnt. She is going for teenager's dresses, dresses that are too short and so on.

If it was really crisis, then Christina wouldnt be in Armani suits for almost every event, Elena wont be carrying different Chanel bags at every event & Queen Sofia wont be in Valentino couture dresses (new ones - Swedish wedding)

The make up difference is obvious but nice eye make up. I don't like the outfit, its very boring and the length of the jacket is quite along for her figure size IMO. I do like the coat.

First of all, congratulation to you.
You have said all things that I wanted to say.

Totally agree with your affirmation dazzling, you have hit the center of the topic

About today outfit: I appreciate the trench and the scarf. Again the hair,I would like to see on Letizia a new hairstyle

This outfit make her look depressed / sad. It's sad, sad colours. Nothing like a nice addition of a colour helps.

Yes, the many and varied shades of grey make me think she's depressed in some way. She looks great when she picks true colors.

Where are the double standards? I could see double standards if Letizia wore designer and was heavily critizised for it but that is not the case.

I cant recall one single occasion when Letizia was critizised for using TOO EXPENSIVE clothing. Her engagement outfit was critizised for other reasons such as not being spanish or her overall appearance being too bossy (wearing the pants), but not because it was too expensive or a high end designer.

While the rest of the family obviously continues to dress between high end fashion and international designer and is NOT being critizised for it, only Letizia doesnt follow suit but choses to dress low end fashion that could look nice in the right combination but doesnt in her case.

If its true that choice of clothes reflect personality then Letizia must be very, very bored, if not worse.

I like the coat but not the suit. She looks so much better wearing vibrant colours.

I guess we've seen all these clothes before, the overall look is still nice and contemporary though.

Ever since the "she tends to wear grey" was mentioned I have been noticing she does. It does make her look sad or depressed.

That's just a distinct sentence, the only part of today's attire is the coat. The rest is what we know very well.

Today she was wearing a classic suit. There were no complaints about short or trendy outfits - just a boring, gray outfit.
