I think Letizia looks terrific. We are always moaning that she wears "business" trouser suits and you have to admit, this outfit is anything but "business"! She looks casually elegant, very, very chic and she has the deportment to carry off the blouson effect without it slipping off centre and looking sloppy.

I have to be honest, I don't usually like really high heels but Letizia's look delicate and elegant and do not have the "stilt" effect. Five gold stars to the lady in black and white!

I like the blouse but it looks 3 sizes too big.

The skinny pants are horrible.
I like the blouse, looks chic and suits Letizia well. I don't mind the trousers too much, but I'm not fond of the belt.

I like the dress on Letizia. A nice bracelet and bigger earrings would have made this look much better.

I find this style so flattering to her figure; I just love those gathers. Larger earrings and a bracelet would have perfected this.

Very flattering to her figure. Ruffle and ruched, a slightly heavier and subtley colored fabric would have made it perfect.

The grey dress is lovely. Letizia looks elegant in it.

I agree Winnie, Duke just doesn´t give up.
As I told before, it´s a light-issue.

Love the grey dress on Letizia - she has a figure which can carry off the gathers at the side. I agree a bracelet would have been nice to finish off the outfit.

The Prince and Princess of Asturias attended the tribute to the "Live Television Treasures" dedicated to those who work on the Spanish television.
- The whole look
- Close up
- The clutch
- Hairstyle

I rather like this look; it's very simple but beautiful and elegant. The dress is a bit too short for my taste, but Letizia certainly looks great in it. Love the coat and the shoes. Upon seeing better pictures of the clutch, I positively love it too. Overall, in my opinion Letizia looks wonderful.

Many more pictures were posted by Lula in the current events thread.

She looks wonderful! Love the outfit
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.
