Picture details

The outfit is ok for the occasion. The shoes I new I believe. Same style as usual.

I like the scarf

Yes Mango is really low end, everyday fun dressing. Don't expect the clothes to last more than one or two seasons, depending how often they are worn. Zara is a bit better. It's ok for private or really casual occasions but Mango is by no means up to the standard of a royal wardrobe.

If supporting Spanish fashion why single those 2 out (or 3, Varela), ignoring all others. It's almost like JC sold Letizia off to those fashion labels to be able to cut her clothes budget to zero. The class difference becomes most obvious next to Felipe (or the rest of the SRF) who looks far from casual his high quality, custom made suits.

This is very practical choice of Princess Letizia. Both fresh and classic at the same time. This combination of clothes will be always needed.

Letizia's outfit looks wonderful today, she does like her high heels. :)
They suit her well.

I am not fond of her pants, the hem seams are too wide for my taste. Lovely shoes though.

[quote=Duke of Marmalade;921958]I can't recall any occasion when Letizia was condemned for wearing high street clothing?[ote] Your previous post was incredibly scathing.

When other royal women recycle or repeat they are usually priased for being "thrifty", Letizia goes one step further and actually soends less and she still gets criticised.

Spain, like the UK, is suffering pretty badly during the recession and supporting major Spanish brands like Zara and Mango, which haven't done well this last quarter is a positive step.

I think her pants are too casual, they look like "Dockers". But everything else is nice.

I think is very wise of Letizia wearing more cheap clothes in times of financial crises. To me she has a big aplause for that!

Princess Letizia at Royal Palace for 2008 Cervantes Award, 20 April 2009.

Shoes
Bracelet

I like the skirt, but not with that jacket.
A brand new pair of shoes very similar to a pair she wore a lot last Spring/ Summer 2008. I find ugly both pairs of shoes.
The bracelet is nice.
I like her hair and I hope she will keep this hair lenght. It would be even better if it was slightly shorter, IMO

Thats a very neutral outfit, looks beautiful on Letizia, she has the knack i thing for pulling off lots of colours. Are those shoes sparkly?

The suit is from last year Expo. Varela also made a few other outfits last year with different fabrics for jacket and skirt. The shoe is her favourite pair and she had them on many times last year.

I really like this outfit. The skirt & the jacket look lovely together. She looks very elegant.

I'd say this is a new pair, the open toe area seems to be much wider.

Skirt & jacket look odd together, the fabric doesn't match.

Duke, you are right. This pair is version 2009, she wore them at the world day for rare disease in March.
