it's the "forgotten" state visit, pics are hard to find. strange enough since it was the first state occasion after the wedding.

seegerpress has a gallery:

Now I think they are different tops. It's not possible to alter an off-shoulder top to a normal V-neck, the colors look different too. Perhaps she got another top to go with the sash comfortably. I'm glad she didn't have the original top altered since I really like the original one. .
I have changed my mind too. Not sure about being able to alter the neckline but the colours are definitely not the same. But strange to own two such similar pieces! Maybe the first one caught moths and she needed a replacement. It's a piece that can be worn for the next 40 years, yes, but please give it a break now

The one-shoulder gown probably looks odd with the sash. One-shoulder style is very in right now, hopefully she gets the chance to wear it soon. However I will not place my hope too high since it was from Varela.
Yes I was thinking the same, in addition to that a one-shoulder gown might be seen as "not suitable" as a state gown (the days of low necklines and wonderbra are long gone for Letizia) and apart from state occasions / dinners of honour for foreign dignitaries and the two occasions in January the SRF hardly uses long gowns / attends black tie events. Not more than one or two per year.

How many times is she going to wear the first 2 outfits(the one with the green skirt and the black/white one)? God,we should all raise money for the poor SRF...

Regarding the black lace ensemble from a few threads back--the dress, jacket, etc... themselves are very attractive and I can find no flaw. The earrings are wonderful, fun, and elegant at the same time. However, that handbag is just too bright for the dress. Really, it's too busy with the simple lace of the gown and too bright against the black. Bad bag choice. As for her shoes, well, she wears horrid shoes. I know Felipe is tall--but find a better heel. Of course, Letizia could have bad or weak ankles and needs a chunkier heel. Bad sprains or breaks or fractures can forever alter your shoewear.

As for the gala gowns,I think she looks amazing in pics 7, 9, 12. The gowns are more sleek and she doesn't appear to drown in them. While 1-3 is a lovely gown in its own right, I think it along with 1 (Fuschia ballgown) were heavily influenced by Queen Sofia's style. They just don't suit her as well as the others. 12 (sleek red number) is ravishing and she looks amazing. Number 8, with the red top and the coppery-brown skirt is really beautiful--this is one time where she doesn't look swallowed up by a big skirt. The gown in pictures 4 and 5 (Black and white) does not do her justice; while sleek the cut makes her look stick-figurey. Perhaps with a sleep top like the one in 8 only in black would look better.

Tiara wise, I prefer the floral--but she wears that Prussian with great style.

This green dress suits Letizia very well. This time she had a different purse than last time:

I´ve never seen before the last gown (the red one with the Prussian tiara), but it´s very beautiful! I think it´s my favourite one.
How many times has she wore it? Just one? IMO, it´s much more beautiful than the black-white one, which she repeats a lot!

She was 'criticized' wearing the sash the wrong way with the first top (Elena had done exactly the same before and nobody cared). Since the gown can be worn the next 40 years, she could always save the original top to wear at the occasions without the silly sashes.

The last 2 years, there were more occasions she wore long gowns without tiara or sash than with. Some foreign dignitaries were only in Spain for an official visit. She can wear that blue gown as long as the visitor is not the Saudi King. She recycled the pink layered skirt about 3 times the last 2 years.

This green dress specially the top somehow remind me XVI century gowns.

The green gown was tailored for the state visit of Vladimire Putin, it fits the Russsian scenes perfectly. The gown looked a bit boring for the Argentine visit. Cristina's outfit looked more fun, probably would have looked better on Letizia. However Letizia's hair and makeup were perfect. I'm surprised that the Prussian tiara looked better with the loose hair.

I am sorry for Letizia's fans, but really don't like that green skirt with that top, it looks like a bag,the skirt's meterial looks too cheap, and the shape doesn't flatter her skinny figure at all!

Too bad those shoes.!

I hate to stir the pot on this, but I think that Letizia looks awful. This dress is better suited for summer. Her stick-thin arms and legs have an odd gray sheen and look like wax.
No stockings - in winter?
And the shoes? Another misstep.

I think that she has stockings. And her legs don´t look so thin to me.

I'm pretty sure she wore pantyhose, even the platform shoes didn't look bad this time IMO. She always has thin arms and legs, that's the way she looks, many would prefer her arms (rather toned) than bingo wings. Many models have very thin arms and legs too, it doesn't mean they can't wear sleeveless dresses .

Letizia is not a model, she is a crown princess. In the summer with a tan this dress would look sensational on Letizia. In the winter, it looks out of place.
I presumed that she was not wearing pantyhose because the color of her legs matches her arms exactly. Sheer black pantyhose would have looked better.
These shoes without the platform would look great, but the platform looks awkward and cheapens the overall look of the outfit.
