Most guests dressed rather casually. It was Sofia's birthday concert, can you imagine Letizia was the one wearing a red dess ? Her hair was not messy, a style might not fit everyone's taste (esp. the side view).

Yes I can.

I would have prefered her wearing a pretty dress instead of a rather casual outfit + sloppy hair.
Or at least it would have been nice to see her in a more elegant suit.

This dress would have been great for a concert.

If you look at pictures of Letizia before her wedding (e.g. Frederik and Mary's wedding) and see how she looks now, it's hard to believe it's the same woman. She used to dress drop dead gorgeous and now she looks like a mouse (imho ofcourse...).

I love the skirt but I don't like the shoes.

I think black is really not Letizia´s colour...occasionally she manages to pull it off, but I think it´s a colour she should wear a lot less of.

i didn't think the outfit was that casual. it certainly looks more free-and-easy than other evening dresses, but it doesn't make her any less casual in my opinion... it's a perfectly appropriate evening outfit. the shoes are horrible though. the hairdo could do with a bit more attention. it looks as if she did it herself (which isn't a problem) and rushing.

Agree. But I would have prefered her taking off the coat or having the coat buttoned (Queen Noor should have shown her how to wear a coat ). Letizia seems to like those open jacket/coat 'sloppy' look, perhaps she thinks it's cool. I know older generation royals or even my mother would never wear clothes this way at a formal or semi-formal occasion.

Well, she has certainly looked far better on other occassions, but it could be a lot worse.

The coat did cover too much, but we have seen the skirt before so thats not a tragedy. I do wonder if it was too dark though, especially next to her dark blouse...
The shoes.... wont say more.
I feel that Letizia's hair let her down, there are many more flattering ways she could have worn it, but nevermind. It does look messy & quick.
The tights were a nice shade though - I like them.

Letizia in Alicante. A recycled dress from last year's PoA awards.

Now that's more like it! If she had buttoned her coat it would have completed the funereal look with the unrelieved black leaching color from her face.

As for the hair, she looks fabulous when she styles a 1940's up-do as she did for Frederik and Mary's wedding. I think that may have been the style she was aiming for but, if you are going to wear an up-do you have to get it right, and while the back was great, the front and sides looked just plain awful.

As for the clompy platform shoes . . . enough already!

I like both of these dresses. The gold dress is very pretty, IMO.

The dress is by Varela, as usual not well fitted and I don't like the shiny and cheap material. Furthermore, it looks much better with silvery accessoires (like the clutch) than gold therefore I find the earrings are quite a mismatch (although nice pieces), same goes for the ugly golden shoes. I am glad Letizia left her golden bracelets at home, they would have been another mismatch. The only thing I really like about Letizia's appreance is her hairdo, she looks great in Rita-Hayworth-style (as she did at the Danish wedding).

The shoes (apart from the normal platform issue) were a good choice IMO. I feel that white or silver shoes would have been too garish, and these are a nice match to the sleeves. (And better than the first ones)
I love the texture & detailing in the dress. The cut isnt as figure-hugging around her middle as some/as it could be, but thats ok.
And I think that Letizia's hair was a million times better the second time - but I didnt especially like the cut in the first one, and thats the base for the styling, so she's already off to a better start!
