Fantastic appearance, one of her best recently! Thank god she left the peep toe platforms in the wardrobe this time.

i don't think that's flattering or looks good on her. those transparencies and embroideries are something i would expect an older lady to wear, not letizia. she looked so lovely in the silver dress!

A good designer and good stylist working hand-in-hand could really help Letizia.
The stylist could lay out her wardrobe - photograph the different pieces and assemble a working manual on what goes with what --- even down to which accessories go with each outfit - shoes, bags, belts, jewelry - the works. Every time an outfit is worn, it should be logged in as to the date and place of when it was worn. This is not rocket science and should be easy to do.
These overseas trips are scheduled waaaaay in advance, so the planning is never last minute.
Letizia must travel with a hairdresser/make-up perosn who could help out in the clothing department.

Good idea, she certainly should ask Zarzuela for more money .
Back to the Mexican trip, she should have hired a hairdresser locally to do her hair every morning, that doesn't cost that much.

I'm sure if Letizia asked for more money for her clothes there would be uproar on this board!

I dont have a problem with Letizia's sleeves and her age - none of the others are showing skin so I feel that they are in fact perfectly fine.
I think that the princess has dressed totally in black and done so very effectively.

Wow! This dress is absolutely beautiful on Letizia. Her entire look (hair, makeup) is flawless.

I acutally liked it but I have a soft spot for see-through sleeves. The dress is really pretty and I thought the combination with stockings and non-peeptoes was very appropriate for the occasion (no high profile royalty compared to other royalty but from a muslim country). Letizia has other black dresses that are really ugly, for example the one she wore at JC's 70th birthday:

I was disappointed with the Mexican visit, repeating all the old outfits. The would be an occasion to sparkle! The silver dress is nice but I find it far too girlish, makes her look as if she came straight out of a dollhouse.

I couldn't agree more. When it counts Letizia doesn't put much effort into her appearance and I am not sure whether it's only a question of money.

did she repeat that much? i really didn't notice. i quite liked one of her colourful skirts and the silver dress. while it looked neat and appropriate i didn't think it looked too unnatural. the arrival outfit was really flawless!

Every single outfit was recycled apart from the outfit on the last day. I don't like the frequency (especially that fake Chanel style outfit was one time too many) and the fact that the special occasion of an official visit is not being reflected in Letizia's choice of clothes. When representing the own country abroad I don't get why it must be the same outfit from Leonor's first day at school or outfits that have been worn countless times on semi-important occasions in Spain. Letizia's choice of clothes and hairstyles in 2004 & 2005 were superb but what's left now is something between ordinary and sloppy.

This black dress was from Caprile. The dress was well made technically, didn't have usual shoulder/sleeves problems seen in Varela's clothes. However, I have been quite disappointed at Caprile's creation (the other one was a grey suit more suited for her mother-in-law) this year, he seemed to forget about Letizia's age. She is in her 30s, not 60s. Can't believe this is the man who said loving sexy clothes on women.
There are probably a few reasons Letizia didn't have new clothes in this Mexican trip, the new Mango skirt costs about 40 Euros. I notice Queen and Cristina haven't been seen with many new clothes either recently. However the main reason IMO was that Letizia wanted to remain discreet, on the background, have the press pay more attention to the events, for example, Felipe had about 9 speeches, all were well written and well delivered. It probably works better in the countires (ex. Poland) they are unknown, but in Mexico, the most headlines in the Spanish press were still 'Letizia in Mexico' .

Now that you mention it, I think Caprile has been disappointing for quite a while now. In the early years, some of the nicest pieces in Letizia's wardrobe came from Caprile (just to mention a few occasions were his designs were worn: danish wedding, engagement gala dinner, Gomez-Acebo / Laura Ponte wedding, Pascua Militar 2005). From then it went downhill - just thinking of all the ugly state dinner skirts and the matronly red outfit Letizia wore during the ambassador reception in 2008. Somehow he took the same turn like Varela - to the worse. Is that because they think they are "safe" now they have secured this ultimate customer and don't have to make any effort anymore? Please, there must be some fresh and upcoming designers in Spain who haven't plunged into couldn't-care-less-mood yet.

Dressing entire black doesn't suit her, entire black only suits to blonde women that can easily enhance the outfit due to the light colour of the hair IMO of course!

I believe you are right -- Letizia looks wonderful in white -- don't get me wrong, in other colors also -- but black doesn't photo well on anyone so I think she should stay away from it. Even pictures of blondes entirely in black do nothing for a photo [unless taken in studio with proper lighting placements]. I believe that should be taken into consideration when wearing black by anyone when they know they will be photographed.

Well, you may have a point, but all black certainly doesnt suit all blonds either! When my hair is blonde (in the summer) there is no way I would ever attempt all black, my skin is too fair... Just an example

Im not normally one to criticise Letizia's clothes but im afriad this time im going to have too - i know she likes to recycle which is good but im sorry this time it has gone too far

18th oct - dinner with the king and queen of jordan

http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/...asaqo/610x.jpg

This is the second time this month she has worn this silver dress (the last time was during an official visit to mexico) and the dress is repeated for the 4th time

I wish she had worn either something new or at lesat one that has not been worn as many times here are some of the dresses i would like her to reuse (maybe some might not have been right for this particular dinner)

I think this grey dress is about the most appropriate dress (out of all the dresses listed by PrincessOfEurope) for this dinner and it meshed very well with the dresses of other royal women, who all looked rather discreet, no one was wearing loud colors, Rania also wore her outfit a couple of times recently. She looked nice in this grey dress and I like her hair too.
On the other hand, I think Letizia should have bought herself a new cocktail dress. She is the crown princess, it seems she has less clothes budget than the Infantas .

I like this silver dress of Letizia's so don't really have a problem with the fact it was repeated. It looks nice and suited the tone of the event which was quite low-key, all of the women opted for fairly simple outfits.

I agree. As much as I love Letizia, she could have chosen another outfit. I'm sure she has lots of dresses to choose from although we don't see them much. The silver outfit is worn 2x this month.
