Very, very nice outfit, but again a pair of the endless celebrity-like-platform-shoes.
If I only knew her size for shoes, I would buy her a pair of really elegant shoes.

The dress - fabulous, although she needs to have the red belt fitted. It is on the last hole and the end of the belt is so long and tends to stick out.
The shoes --- what can I say? Those ugly shoes spoil the whole outfit --- it's the little things that count -

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.
Totally agree - on closer inspection, the jacket looks like it is make of a tweed fabric with a silver thread woven throughout --- that is why Letizia is wearing a silver colored camisole under the jacket and those hideous silver shoes --- red and silver is the color combination --- waaaaay too formal for the event

The dress from the opening ceremony was just gorgeous, I loved it!!!
But, like so many others, not such a fan of the shoes...

Still, I'd go so far as to say that of the pics I've seen so far, I think she was the best dressed royal at the ceremony

The shape of the dress is very pretty. It looks very elegant on her.

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.

The "bamboo" dress is absolutely stunning, the best part of the outfit is her smile though. She has looked relaxed and happy as does Felipe. Wonderful, also, the green dress is stunning again. KEEP IT UP!

The bamboo dress is all right, but nothing spectacular. Crown Princess Letizia just wore a variation of her usual sleeveless tailored dresses. It was nice to see her happy and relaxed
