They like formality a lot in China. So Crown Princess Letizia's formal red suit looks all right there. It seems to me that the red jacket does not fit well, though.

Catango, I have to slightly disagree with you.
The black dress a few days ago was indeed more in a celebrity-style than royal, but IMO ok while worn at vacation.
For the event in Bejing a nice summer dress in a nice colour, why not in red would have suited the occasion better than suit, aaaaand
like always don't ask me for my opinion about the new pair of celebrity/stripper/platform-shoes.

My advice for Letizia: Please hire a stylist, someone who plans with you weekly or monthly the wardrobe for the forthcoming events!

The difference is that Princess Letizia was in a SERIOUS act with all the spanish delegation in JJOO, while Q AM was just greeting the spanish sport team and Mary the Australian team, they don't preside any event, Pss Latizia is well dressed, and come one, you don't have to compare Princess Letizia with anybody.

I think that Letiziaīs outfit today was very appropriate. Red is the colour of Spainīs athletes and also the colour of China. Nice and polite.

ENOUGH COMPARISONS! If you want to discuss Mary's fashion, go to her fashion thread. If you want to discuss Letizias fashion stay here.

So true. Plus the air con in lots of luxury hotels in Beijing is very strong to accommodate people wearing business suits.

The red suit is not suitable for a meet-and-greet with the athletes - the jacket is ill-fitting and Letizia looks out of place. Red is definitely her color, but a pretty dress would have looked better and more comfortable.
AND those ugly, platform peep-toe pumps are back in action, only this time in a shiny, blinding silver -- they look like tin foil.
The shoes are truly ugly and a total mismatch with the stiff suit.

Why can't she wear suits when men were also wearing suits ?? Red is the Spanish team color, I think it's the reason she wears red.

Ok, for any that don't know what outfit the conversation is about, like me until I saw it on another forum thread :)

Two pics here: royals.web-log.nl: Prins Felipe & Prinses Letizia en Prinses Mary & Prins Frederik bij de Olympics in Beijing.

Personally I don't like it. The jacket is to heavy and looks like a different colour to the skirt. If she wanted to wear a suit fine but she should have picked a nice light summer one.

As far as I am concerned she can wear whatever she likes. It does not matter anyway since any oufit she wears will be admired or criticized in this forum and we can all have fun reading other members' opinions.

I agree with you -- with her husband walking around in a business suit, she looks fine -- plus she is thin and with all that AC that already American news people have been talking about, I bet other women would enjoy sweaters or jackets.

I like this dress. The shape of the dress looks nice on her figure, and she looks fantastic in green.
