I love the original design of this gown. The one she had on her pre-wedding gala. It looks much more regal and sophisticated. Why did she ever change it.

Good grief, are you mad? Letizia wore the original with pizzazz! Now it's just plain boring, or it would be if they hadn't utterly destoyed a work of art! Barbarians at the Gates!

To reiterate my previous statement;

To reiterate my previous statement;
Yes, at least with original design, the dress looked like an evening gown, but now with the actual design, with all that lace, and that deep low neckline, it looks like a nightie.

Yes it Was a masterpiece. It is now time to gracefully retire it and leave it in the back of the royal closet....hopefully never to be seen again in it's present form. We can all relive the original design in all it's glory in our minds and old photos. *flowers*

I agree. I do adore the dres now. But not as much as the old one. I hadn't realised it was the same dress just re-designed until somebody pointed it out. Why didn't she keep the original and have some create this new one as an extra. I am right in saying that this new dress was formed from the old one?x

Nice repeated blouse and i really like the new skirt and the way her hair is done for a change but why choose another pair of those shoes (this is the 3rd pair of these sandals as this pair are all white)

Good lord, these shoes :rolleyes2: they look so out of place for this event, after all a dinner with a foreign Head of State. Clinging onto Felipe doesn't look good either.

The new skirt is nice but doesn't work with quillings on the blouse, another self-combined desaster

I like the shirt and the skirt but I don't like the fit of the skirt !!
Too bad she ruins the outfit with those shoes!
Does anybody know who is ths shoes stylist?

I am not sure the shirt is a new one. It probably is the shirt she wore for a private dinner with Maxima and Willem in Madrid a few months ago. Am I wrong?
Sorry, I can't find the pic.

The print of the skirt is nice but I agree about the shape, very matronly.

i think she looked very lovely and feminine in this outfit. the shoes seemed a bit too much but are nevertheless quite nice. lovely new skirt, and it looks great with the shirt and hairdo.

I love this outfit on her! The skirt is very beautiful (I love the print), the shirt is also nice and the shoes...not my favourite pair, but despite that, they look incredibly well with this outfit.
And her hairdo is simply amazing, one of the most beautiful hairdos she has worn lately.
She looks stunning.

Think the shoes are out of place definitely, the "clinging" isn't that bad. It's nice to see some affection from the royal couple. x

I really liked the last outfit on Letizia!
The skirt is really beautiful and looked just great with the blouse.
The hairdo was lovely, too.

So, Letizia owns at least 3 different versions of the sandals she wore for this event
In purple
In White/Beige
and
In White
