Tonight she is totally stunning, I like the colour, the dress is as simple as elegant. She looks so regal.

Oh my goodness. She looks absolutely gorgeous....Dress, Hair, Makeup,Jewelry. Wow!! Very smart and chic. Too bad they had to pan down and show her awful shoes again. I guess we can't have everything! :) Perfection (almost!).

Lovely dress, one of the best Letizia owns. This style suits her so much better than her usual gala attire with overpowering skirts.

I thought that the dress was somewhat "wasted" on this occasion and deserved a better forum, a black- or even white tie event. I am not a fan of the strap, it looks oddly placed, I could imagine that the dress would be even more stunning without the strap and a decent necklace instead, very suitable eg for a white tie state event.

The hair is nicely done but up-do would have been even better.

Letizia was belle of the night by far, surrounded by the First Lady who didn't follow the dress code and Queen Sofia repeating her pastel green table cloth dress.

Because Princess Letizia never wanted to enter in that absurd competition (many people still did not understand that ) initiated by some media and she wore a recycling dress.

Is it a navy blue dress? Its beautiful, like the one shoulder as well, I ifnd the dress abit too short, maybe if she hadnt worn such high shoes it would just touch the floor. I like the hair but maybe if she had it up with this dress.

Its not a dress suitable for a state visit but would work on an official visit. Its too plain, too simple for a state visit which is considered such abig event/visit form the other country.

Letizia looked absolutely stunning tonight. Her gown is my favorite since the red stunner she wore to Mary and Frederik's wedding 5 years ago.

I was just thinking the same thing! The dress is stunning in it's simplicity and her hair is fabulous with enough volume and wave to expose those terrific earrings.

Letizia looks great!
Beautiful dress.
Though the strap was unnecessary, Imo.
I love that colour.

Good eye, LadyFinn!
I wonder why she hasn't repeated it for many months. It is one of her best evening dresses, IMO.
