I do like this coat dress, especially the hemline cut-work. The waist would be better without the gather, IMO.

I don't care too much for the gathered/pleated waist either. In fact, after seeing a close-up view of this coat, I really don't like it. It looks too young for her.

Lovely outfit but the tights are a bit too dark.
You really need the right look to match with such dark tights.

Good God, they would find a way to crucify Princess Letizia no matter what she does, a skirt covering the knees is a miniskirt and inappropriate?
I'm not able to read the article, but does it really "crucify" her? The dress pictured in the article isn't covering her knees by a long shot.

I love the scalloped hem on the coat, but I have to agree about the tights. They're too dark.

I like the outfit but the tights are black?and the shoes are black maybe a lighter shade of black would have been better .

I think Felipe and Letizia look fine. Perfect even. Their smiles speak for a thousand words. There's no telling what the future may bring but I try to see in god's eyes and see why life is so partial or melodic, like a composure. And I guess I see the poetry written by all. And I find a simile in all the Royals do watching here. Wow, I'm enamored in the splendor I see. Forgive me if I may seem incoherent. I just feel I owe it to them and you for all I have read and followed at the forum. Thanks for sharing the pictures and mementos everyone. You are the World to me. Continue having fun. Cheers to you.

The baby doll style was very popular 2-3 years ago when Letizia had this coat dress. I like the fabric.

This coat dress has always been my favourite. The black tights suit great with it. Letizia´s bag is from Malababa:

Um? Were you looking at the right photo? The only dress that wasn't immodest was the knee length one she wore for the Beatification of Pope John Paul in Rome. Every other dress in that series was almost immodest in it's lack of length.

The series of photos was entitled "Princess Letizia likes short skirts". That is hardly a crucification, merely a statement of fact. After all, they provided the photos to back up the statement. To my way of thinking, those photos taken while on private holiday are off limits and none of my business but, those worn on Royal Duties are another matter altogether.

The photo of Letizia in Chile sitting down wearing the white mini dress with black trim was perilously close to vulgar, it was so short. I thought it was a shame because if it had not been so short it would have been elegant. The first photo in the series show her wearing the same dress with a matching coat and dark hose. It looks great until you look down and see how incredibly short it is. The dark hose help to give it a degree of decorum that the same dress in Chile did not have.

Agree about the too short skirt while sitting down. You have to take that into consideration w/a short skirt, ok if you just stand, no stooping or bending or sitting! The other skirts seemed fine to me.
She, for me, is painfully thin, and I have trouble following her style while I very much admire the couple and their adorable girls.

23/1/12 @ Manuel Fraga's funeral
http://img.irtve.es/imagenes/funeral...7348064631.jpg


Varela's designs for Letizia can now be bought online from his website

24-01-2012 Madrid Princess Letizia and Prince Felipe attended the reception for the ambassadors at the royal palace in Madrid.

Plain black skirt & a black/shiny/cheap looking material blouse with a zipper polo neck, open toe shoes
For this event very disappointing, the outfit looks unelegant and plain, boring hair, no jewellery apart from the boring star earrings, what an ugly outing for such an event.

Yesterday at the funeral, looking very appropriate

To me Letizia looked gorgeous today at the reception for ambassadors. She surely knows that less is more. She could have had different shoes but otherwise the outfit is beautiful.

I really like the design of CP Letizia's coat dress -it looks very feminine exhibiting those petal-like edgings and delicate embroidery, but why did she choose such a dull colour? Pastel shades or vibrant warm tones would have complemented this beautiful style much more aptly i.m.o.. However, Letizia owns just the right body measurements in order to pull of flared skirts successfully .

I thought this was appropriate for a winter funeral, I especially liked the way she layered and twisted the black scarf.

Can't add much more to this description; this outfit really is too somber and funereal. Not even decent jewelry to lift this look up to another level.
