I agree with what donnaK said further down; Caprile gave the impression that Letizia bought his clothes and she did repeat some of them more than once. If she had stood by Caprile her gala wardrobe would be much better off today, a royal woman needs couture, at least for high profile events, and Caprile was perfect for her, he's Spanish and in comparison to others (eg Valentino) not among to most expensive designers. It was a mistake to go to Varela with his ready-made low budget clothes, barely ok for royal daytime fashion and a desaster for eveningwear.

I agree it is strange. But what is even stranger imo is the way people continue to condemn Letizia for this when it is appears to be omething she has no control over.
I doubt Letizia is the only royal who is being condemned for something she doesn't appear to have control over on this board.

What we know for sure is that it's the Patron's word that counts in Zarzuela, and he seems to be fine with the message that is being sent out by the appearance of the SRF at a gala dinner with Queen Sofia wearing Valentino couture and Princess Letizia wearing an ugly pink Varela combo that looks like a relict straight from the 1980s.

04/02 Dinner on the occasion of 150th Anniversary of "Caixa Sabadell"

http://actualidad.terra.es/addon/img...18492e8eeg.jpg
http://actualidad.terra.es/addon/img...184935dc3g.jpg


Beautiful "little black dress", a repeat from June 08 (with the infamous pink shoes) Galerías de imágenes and from September 08 (official visit Mexico) http://www.abc.es/multimedia/fotos/21388.asp.

The hair was nicely done at one of the previous occasions, this time it's just plain and unkempt, too bad
The shoes are a killer but at least no black stockings.

If Letizia had received 900K Euro yearly from the state government like Maxima, people would certainly have reasons to ask where the money went. Since we don't know how the King distributed the money, I don't think Letizia should take the most blame.
Perhaps JC is just extremely generous towards his wife money wise . In a new book on Queen Ena, it mentioned that Alfonso XIII compensated Ena with many valuable jewels since she loved jewelry. Infantas did very few events compared to Letizia, rarely went to the galas. If their hubbies made as much money as they were rumored to, they certainly could afford buying a few expensive clothes.

She looks nice. Elegantly dressed for the occasion. As for the shoes, I love them. They have just enough lift without looking like Frankenstein shoes. Chic.

Whatever amout Royals receive they should be clear about the distribution. JC represents the past and once he's gone, Felipe (and other European heirs) will have to allow a lot more transparency regarding this issue. We are talking about taxpayers' money after all.

Not necessary. Although I don't know what budget is used for Sofia's clothes, I believe she's very wealthy in her own right, at least got a decent dowry from her family when she married JC.

I only liked the earrings and the black lace top(and hair and make-up).The shoes looked too old (I remember they were considered fashionable back in 2001-2003 ) and the bag......looks like a little girl's toy to me...
But the most important,in my opinion,is that she looks so sad.Why?Is it because of the anniversary of her sister's death?

Iakynthi, but these photos are little old in my opinion. I don't rememeber on what ocassion they were taken.
Of course she could wore some little necklace or maybe brooch...
Better these shoes than platforms.

I really like the lace ensemble, very femine and yet clean look. Interesting choice of the beaded blue bag though. At least it give the dark outfit a pop of colour. I used to like Letizia with her hair up, but lately the look makes her look matronly....especially compared to photos from the week before with her hair down.
