I can't see it well, please, could you tell me if the skirt is black and white or blue and white?

the dress is black and white - though in some pictures the skirt almost appears to be black and silver

I love the skirt. The top is too old fashioned and bland, looks like something my grandma wore in the 80s. I prefer a top similar to Rania's white Prada lacey top she wore in Spain.

She has worn the skirt with 3 different tops - here is a reminder
Personally my favourite is the back one worn at the private dinner in luxembourg

Last nights top is of similiar style to the pink beaded top she wore back in Jne 08 at the (mexican ?) dinner

Best hair-do/tiara combo I've seen in a long time. At least her hair is not noticably stiff and dry with hair spray and this gala hair-do does not age her.
The outfit is blah - the top looks too big and does not compliment the skirt.
Thr recent appearance of dressy black platform shoes: All of these have light colored soles which really stand out, destroy the look of the shoe (especially when she pairs them with black tights) and scream "cheap shoes"
Good designer shoes would have black soles. Lately all of Letizia's shoes look cheap and trashy.
Her evening outfits leave alot to be desired. The short gunmetal gray dress with the zippers would have looked much better with beading instead of the zippers.

oh no, that dress again. i was hoping to see her in the dress she wore at charles' birthday. i thought the first time that it was lovely, but she recycled it too much and always with ill-looking tops. the first time it looked excellent in the satin white shirt, but the rest...

wouldn't any of these have been a better choice?

I love the white dress in the third picture. I have never seen it before, and it was absolutely beautiful.

I also loved that white dress that she wore at Prince W-A's 40th Birthday bash -- amazing, if you look back at the comments about it, most people wrote finding fault with it at the time.

i am with you, the black top looked best. the wrap around silver top was also worn in october 2006 during the reception of honour for the portuguese president, shortly after the announcement that sofia was on the way. imo it looked too big and does not really suit the skirt.

i agree same varela-style. the pink version looks even worse, very cheap & 80's. especially the colour makes the top look like a relict from the 80's soap trunk, like dallas, dynasty or miami vice.

I don't like those trousers on her, but the jacket and the shirt look nice, IMO!

Thanks for the answer PrincessofEurope!

i agree, i don't think the trousers are all that flattering on her, but i always thought the blouse was great and it's nice to see her recycling the jacket.

I like the top and jacket, but I agree with everyone else. These trousers are not flattering. She should have gone with something less shiny. Satin trousers are very difficult to wear, and if a tiny, very thin person like Letizia cannot wear them well, nobody can.

I didn't like the black and blue together - one or the other would have looked good but not together.

I don't mind the pairing of that particular shade of blue with black. But, I agree that the skirt and the shoes were terrible. That style of skirt does not suit someone like Letizia. The cut is wrong for such a tiny woman. The same for the shoes - the scale is too large for her.

An off day for certain. Her legs are so skinny and with the black pantyhose they even looked skinnier. A pair of pants would have looked much better. (She even looked too pre occupied and serious)

Quite a nice look for Letizia. I like the fullness of the skirt and the match with the navy top. I wish Letizia had worn a belt with this.

I really like the blouse. Blue is definitely one of her best colors. The skirt is nice too, but I don't care for it with this blouse.
