I wonder if this dress is from Gusto Barcelona since Letizia was seen shopping at one of his stores. She is in South America, why not wearing some colorful clothes ? I like her hair brushed straight.

hideous print! good lord, they are on an official visit. the dress is good enough for a summer night out in mallorca, not more, with felipe wearing a shirt and casual trousers. but hey, this is suit and tie dress code. thank good we can't see the shoes.

A ghastly dress, not helped by the ghastly costume jewelry junk around her neck.
It would stand out in a negative way even in some Mallorca beach club as suggested above... for a suit & tie evening engagement on an official visit, it's entirely inappropriate.
Pseudo-latin 'theme' dressing when visiting Latin countries is always a risk, and when it gets wrong like it does here, then it's rather tasteless and almost appears to make fun of the host country.

I don't like the print either and I think this is a summer casual dress for Mallorca, it would looked lovely on her in a summer nigth but for his ocassion a big no!

I loved the black dress for the welcoming dinner. Elegant and simple.

I also loved the recycled golden dress. We didn't see it for quite a while and it was nice to see it again. I like the cut and the length of it's sleeves.
Letizia's hair looked really lovely. Soft curls suit her.

The colourful dress was really aweful. The print is just tacky. Not a nice dress for an official occasion...

The printed dress was something very new on Letizia and is pribably ebtter suited to the farewell dinner in Mallorca rather on this trip - but it was good to see her being bolder in her choices

The dress is very colorful & printed. It doesn't suit for her. It looks awful!

I don't like the print, but she is thin enough and looks pretty good in this colorful dress. The shoes matched well too.

That is a ghastly dress for Letizia. The shoes are awful aswell. Not a very good outfit for letzia. Her hair aswell, she needs to do something other than have it straight down.

I totally agree with you. I do hope we will not see this dress and it's accessories in the near future Nothing even remotely elegant or tasteful about this outfit.,IMHO.

What a shame to see; she was doing so well with her dress selections before this.

I love the printed dress, it's nice to see Letizia wearing something fresh and youthful.

The silver dress is beautiful and has a very 1920's flapper feel to it which is partly why I like it.

I'm not a fan of this print. It doesn't look the least bit sophisticated and the shoes are terrible as well making the entire outfit look cheap.
