while some outfits remain a bit dull, i think she did her best lately to innovate in her wardrobe, so i give her credit for that. i also doubt the fact of repeating can qualify her as "not elegant". in fact, i don't think elegance does involve not repeating at all (not every day, obviously, but what's wrong with repeating once or twice? does it make you any less elegant?).

i believe the people creating these polls don't really think that all the ladies they compare are different and have different roles. therefore, their ways of being elegant are different. while it's okay for isabel preysler (in the poll) to have a different outfit to each gala she attends, that would be really critisised for letizia. similarly, they do not understand that letizia wants to give another, more professional and less frivolous image. their ways of judging her elegance are as well most intriguing: i didn't know you could measure it by the times one repeats outfits or because some of them are dull (simplicity is elegance in most times).

good point carlota. Elegence isnt about repeating and the poll should compare women in same status. Without a doubt there will be a difference in how a celebrity would dress to a crown princess. Maybe if the poll was between the members of the royal family, other crown princess's etc...

Lately she has been doing a great job, i think during spring/summer she wasnt doing good.

I agree with carlota. I think princess Letizia is doing the right thing by using the clothes of spanish designers, also crown princess Victoria is doing so, she is using the clothes of swedish designers. I don´t like these kind of polls, because people don´t usually understand that people who are doing different kind of work dress differently. I think that the spanish people should appreciate that Letizia doesn´t use enormous sums of money to clothes, she has more important things to do than dress to different outfit every day. Letizia dresses just fine to me and it doesn´t bother me that she recycles her outfits. She is a princess, not a model or Victoria Beckham.

I really thought it was the opposite, she dresses really fancy,not that it odd or something, she 's a crown princess, that's what all they do. what you said applies to her sisters in law I think, they dress really simple most of the time.

Most of their "simple" clothing is by high-end international fashion designers, unlike Letizia.

Personally I don't think it matters how elegant she comes in an Hola! poll. She's a CP not a supermodel, while these sorts of accolades may be nice and entertaining for Royalty watchers, her job is to represent Spain. Personally I think she makes a commendable effort particularly in her circumstances and looks good the vast majority of the time (jmo).

i agree with most of the previous posts it isnt a crime to recycle your clothes in fact it is something that is very necessary to show good economy in the royal family and that she is representing her country not the fashion world. goodness if she wore a new outfit every engagement just to win most elegant person in hola it would be a very silly and sad thing for her to do instead she concentrates on what is important to her. Letizia (like all princesses) is criticised for not wearing a greater variety in clothes,for using only one designer (Varela) and for being dull in her wardrobe but also she is criticised if spends too much money on her appearance - she cant get the balance right. Always Letizia is neat and smart and IMO very elegant it would be a lot worse if her clothes sense looked like the dog's dinner. KEEP ON RECYCLING LETIZIA heaven help us if Victoria Beckham was to be an ambassor just because she was voted as elegant you need more than clothes to be successful

Being high up in this poll would be a plus for a movie star or a model. I do not think it means a lot for a princess, especially a crown princess. It could even be a source of criticism especially if being elegant is being equated to wearing expensive clothes and not wearing the same outfits again.

Very well said! Agreed 100%

Its just practical for her to recycle her clothes and perhaps put a different twist on it.
