How about a pair of Sheer black stockings and a more feminine , lighter looking shoe?! I Love her dress but I think it could be abit longer with the shoes and tights she's wearing with it...

I always thought that this red outfit is made for an older woman.Letizia's hair looks very nice here,but I prefer it medium long,just like it is nowadays.

I agree with you, Iakynthi. This outfit is pretty, but it is a bit old for her. It would look lovely on Queen Sofia. I also prefer her hair longer than she is wearing it in this picture.

Cheap shoes can kill any outfit. Cheap shoes look cheap - period.
When the platform craze is over, Letizia is going to have a ton of outdated
(and ugly) shoes to get rid of - unless she chooses to to keep wearing those
hideous clodhoppers!

I don't really like that dress.Black might be safe in most cases,but the neckline of this specific dress doesn't flatter Letizia at all,in my opinion.

this dress is designed to be worn with mantilla and i don't think it's suitable for an evening gala event.
when visiting the pope

as a consequence, letizia has never worn it on other occasions but it looks classy, no surprise as it is designed by caprile
there is a huge difference to the cheap and shapeless looking black frock designed by varela, especially next to queen sofia in an amazing oscar de la renta creation.

I like the dress when it is paired with the mantilla. The dress from the third photo is kind of boring-looking. Queen Sofia's dress, however, is absolutely gorgeous. I suppose that anything would look boring when standing next to the Queen in that de la Renta dress.

I hope we'll see her wearing one again soon (maybe a white one, like the one we saw on Elena).

I guess this type of mantilla is traditional in Spain,right?I have seen paintings of Goya (perhaps it was Montigliani as well) that depicted women wearing those mantillas.And I agree Letizia looks good with one of them.

It would seem so and yet bizarrely it's Letizia people choose to bash, not the Queen.....

The black dress is a bit too conservative on its own, but fits the mantilla perfectly. I'd love to see Letizia wearing a white mantilla (like Elena) one day.

I thought the black dress was perefct for meeting the Pope and was so elegant - i am sure that when she becomes Queen she will wear white when they meet the Pope

So,in other words,there are certain colours-especially black & white-that have a certain symbolism,right?
By the way,I like Felipe with the beard (irrelevant!).

When a Catholic queen meets the Pope in the Vatican she always wears white (Sofia, Paola, Grand-duchess Maria-Theresa etc) but a Catholic princess wears black (Letizia, Mathidle etc) as do non-Catholic princesses and monarchs (hence Queen Elizabeth and Beatrix wear black)
