As I said before: nice pieces; but not nice together IMO.
Btw: her hair looked a little messy.
I agree about the matching HM, the pieces look like thrown together. The purse is out of place with this outfit and the whole look as usual ordinarized by ugly silver peeptoes. I don't know for sure but my guess is that it's by Varela, another boooring coat / dress combination.

Letizia looked tired and forgot to wash her hair this morning. She looked similar 2 years ago in her early pregnancy with Sofia, somehow uncomfortable with a forced smile. Maybe another Borbon is on the way, would be a good excuse after all.

Dissapointing look. The coat looks big and its not Letizia. Its way to old for her IMO though I like the collar on it. The dress is boring, looks abit tight around the bust area and the neckline on the dress does not look nice with the collar of the coat. Color of the outfit does not do Letizia any good.

The outfit isn't horrible or ugly...it's just boring. The color and texture of the coat are very nice, but the dress underneath looks kind of frumpy. I really like her shoes, but the purse looks terrible with this ensemble. She looks kind of washed-out in these colors. She also looks tired and pale.

She looks quite good. Maybe the colour wasn't the best choice better would be violet or red (she looks nice in red). Coat and dress looks good on her.

I think she look ok, but not more than that. The color doesn't suit her well. I think the cut of this outfit would be better in another color.
Roll of dice..... 3.

You will do better next time Letizia. :)

I dont mind the outfit. I am pleased she has chosen a colour that i dont think she has worn before.
It also looks quite good next to the Queen's bright and the Infanta's dark colours.
I really like the texture of the coat.

She looks nice, but very boring. The coat looks similar to last year's blue coat, only longer, the dress is similar to the red dress two years ago. I guess that's her national day uniform by Varela. How easy to be the designer for Letizia LOL ! She needs a new designer period. Varela has become so lazy that each year he only changed the colors of the clothes .

She looks very nice in the coat dress by Adolfo Dominguez who was her designer during her old days on TV. Adolfo Dominguez is also liked by many famous women in Spain.

Maybe she has some kind of contract with Varela for clothes?

She looked similar on National Day 2005 when she was pregnant with Leonor. But back then it was at least a matching outfit.

I like the jacket and the dress is elegant but all the same colour makes the whole outfit yes boring!

I also think she lost her "uniqueness" after the nose op. Now she just another pretty woman. Don't like the grey ensemble on her, way to matronly and boring.

Somehow I agree with you. She looks boring and monotonous. The coat and the dress are beautiful, IMO, but wearing them together is not a good option.

The outfit certainly does look much different up close. At a distance it did nothing for me but up close had quite nice details. Not her color. I would have liked better in the red that is touched in Felipe's uniform or a blue that would have matched Felipe's sash. That is what a good dresser/advisor does for a couple -- they should be coordinated for photos. A dresser always asks what the husband/date is wearing for the occasion. His clothes are mandiated for the occasion so hers should be made to compliment.

Even Willem-Alexander, definitely not a fashion icon, will on "dressy" occasions, coordinate his ties with Maxima's clothes.

Maybe Letizia wanted to blend into the background against her mother & sisters-in-laws -- of course how could anyone blend away on the arm on Felipe!

Totally agree - she has lost her "character" and uniqueness - her face has a blank look now.

I always think her 'character' and 'uniqueness' are her bright eyes, not her nose. She looked beautiful at the reception with her hair brushed very straight.
