The opening ceremonies dress ... I've already gushed about it in the Olympics thread, but I have to do it again here. It's one of the most elegant shapes I think I've ever seen her wear. So flattering! And the bamboo print was lovely. Is the belt red or pink? I would assume she'd want to wear a little bit of red or gold to support Spain.
The shoes ... eh. The whole ensemble would have been perfect if she'd just worn a simple pair of black heels with a slightly pointed toe. I'm over the platform look too, jinigirl. I guess maybe she likes them because they're fashionable and they make her just that much closer to her husband in height?
And I totally agree with the comment about Letizia managing to look cool even when everyone else got sweaty-looking. She's so elegant with her dress and her little printed fan.
