I love the dress. The color looks spectacular on Letizia, and the style is very classy. The belt adds a nice contrast too.

You know? I'm sick and tired of people like you putting down Letizia just because she doesn't "dress like a princess" . She proudly wears Spanish fashion because she believes in representing, value for money, her OWN brand - SPAIN.

She has her own style. A simple, uncomplicated, austerity professional style -the kind we Spaniards much prefer.

Queen's Sofia's time is almost gone. She always had freedom in the press relating to what she wore (and her spenditure) comparing to the type of scrutiny Letizia receives today. It may sound incredible but Letizia has about as much spending money as most of us here are on a 6 bracket annual salary anyway.
No one has put Letizia down We are posting in a fashion thread and are allowed to post our opinions on her clothing choices just as you are. Sometimes she hits it out of the park and sometimes she doesn't. Yesterday in the short skirt and leather jacket she missed. Today in the hot pink dress she looks marvelous.

I though on this dress as well
I like this new dress, the colour is gorgeous and I love the belt and the neckline detail.

Fashion is such an inconsequential thing...

I guess most of us like fashion and that´s because of we come to these threads and comment on the royals´outfits. I like saying what I like and what I don´t, what I would change, if a particular outfit doesn´t flatter a lady as it should, and I feel also free on saying if I dislike the style of any of these Princesses. It just about fashion, a pure frivolous thing.

The trouble is, that in Letizia´s fashion threads I´ve seen too many personal attacks on her, justified only because the person commenting doesn´t like what she´s wearing in that moment. I know someone will say this isn´t true, but it is, you just have to have a look at this thread and others.

I´ve seen so many comments that have annoyed me a lot (by the way, I think this is the first time I´m saying this), such as: she does´t like her role or doesn´t take it seriously, she´s depressed, she doesn´t respect the people she´s meeting or the act she´s attending...and one of my favourites: "She needs an stylist, but she´s so proudthat she doesn´t accept it", and so on...THAT´s just DISGUSTING.
So I understand perfectly what Alondra, Dkaren and others feel, because as Spanish I often feel offended as well, and we can say anything without been answered the old "this is a fashion thread and everybody has its opinion" thing. Okay, but if feel that fashion shouldn´t be used to attack anybody or judge his/her work.

And I´m one of the persons that don´t like especially Letizia´s style and would change many things about it, but I still think she´s one of the best CPs out there and the one that takes her duties more seriously.

PD: I hope I´ve expressed myself clearly, it´s very difficult for me writing such a long paragraph in English, I´ve really got a bad time

You expressed yourself very well. Most of the posts who are criticizing Letizia as a person, albeit in disguise as commenting on her fashion sense are not Spaniards so what they say does not matter. You have a very beautiful and hardworking princess and you should be proud of her.

Absolutely spot on. These two outfits illustrate the enigma that is Letizia. One day . . . utterly fabulous and the next . . . oh dear.

Today was a Wow day. Her hair and makeup were right on the mark and her ensemble stylish and elegant. Great colour, design, length and counterpoint accessories. Oh yes, how could I have overlooked this . . . unusually, she even had a clutch!

You expressed yourself very well We will have to agree to disagree. I never recall attacking Letizia, the person. What she decides to put on in the morning? Yes But when she steps it up (like the pink dress today) and actually LOOKS the role of the CP and next Queen of Spain that she is, I say that too.

She definitely hit a home run in this dress! Great color, love the cut & the accessories.

Every time she represents the (serious) institution she should dress the part, no need to wear a conservative suit all the time but this outfit doesnt do Letizia's posititon justice. And all the meetings she does is because of her position and not because Letizia Ortiz is interested in the cause. She wouldnt be there without her title.

Just because no formal attire is required, it doesn't make the meeting any less important, not deserving on the website. In Spain men usually wear suits, women don't have to wear the same style of clothes to match as in some other countries, perhaps that's the culture thing, mini skirts are common among all ages of working Spanish women. If Letizia isn't interested in the cause, she probably wouldn't be there even with her title.
If you look at the pictures, you can see the headquarters of the rare disease federation locates in a very simple and old building (I guess they probably don't have much funding), people there don't dress formally, thus I can understand why Letizia didn't dress formally.

Its a fashion thread and I dont see what work ethic etc have to do with it.
Foreign leaders, wives of the leaders, high level executives should be comfortable with designer clothes .
Sofia did visit humble charities (especially abroad), but I don't remember seeing her sitting down with a group of informally dressed ordinary workers, talking and discussing. Sofia is very smiling and friendly, if she goes around shaking hands, speaking less than 3 sentences to each one, no point of feeling uncomfortable around her, right ? . Sofia and Letizia have different backgrounds, belong to different generations, they have different approaches to their work.

Amazing dress! This is such a lovely dress, the color is so refreshing, its also a nice shade of pink. The black belt was a smart idea, it add a nice touch to the bright dress. This is a dress that would also look great with not so thick black stockings.
