The dress could have been prettier if it were just a bit longer. It is too short on Letizia, and it looks awkward. The tights are too dark for the dress, and the shoes are not nice, IMO.

The dress is lovely but if it could have been longer, it would be better. The shoes are ugly, IMO.

Yes, it would be a perfect choice, for someone in the teen years.

Unfortunately, this look is not appropriate neither to her position nor age. The minidress looks ridiculous and appears to be of bad quality. Shoes and stockings ... I am not even getting there.

It's almost painful to see how much effort Letizia used to put into a regal appearance at the same event in 2004, scroll down for further pics
Premio Antonio Asensio de Periodismo - Grupo Zeta

Sadly, these days she only looks as if she has lost the plot along the way.
I agree with you about this look
this dress, this look would be nice for a very private and "light" dinner or party with some privates friends ...home or in a restaurant...
but not for this kind of official event as a Princess
and yes in 2004 at the same event she was beautiful with abslotly stunning look
You can notice that for several events years after year ...Pascual , premios des asturias, national day ....
I don't know what happen to her , but she has definitively stopped to be a very very very elegant Princess since Sofia Pregnancy
I am very nostalgic of her first years looks as a princess, when she was engaged, and all the periods before Infanta Sofia
Now she is just a woman nice dressed , more or less nice dressed sometimes ...

I personally like the style of Princess Letiza. She is modern, young woman, with great style. Never boring. And I admire her that she can walk in such high heels.

She wants so bad to be on fashion trend that she repeats her mistakes over and over.

I've looked back over her early days and sure I thought she was really elegant and exactly how you want/expect a princess to be....but when I look at her current style, I suprise myself by actually preferring her current's just that she doesn't seem to dress appropriately for the occasion, or the quality is not the best, and of course the shoes ruin practically every outfit. She's so close and yet so far from getting it right.

I think that Princess Letizia's fashion is nothing but the reflection of her attitude.

Now, who is that lady on the extreme right? She is dressed exceedingly well and appropriate for the award function. IMO, that's what a princess should dress like, not a "Look at me, I am in my 30s but wanna dress like in my 20s."

Btw, can I also add that I absolutely hate the way she stands, with all those model poses. Check out her "Daylife" pic posted by Royalist, as an exhibit.

Well I see that MM gave Letizia a pair of her tights! Hopefully she'll give them back, and soon. First off, the dress is nice, but I'm not so sure that a sleeveless dress should be paired with opaque tights, that to me seems just wrong. And although I like the shoes, I don't like them with the dress, they are way to heavy looking.

Yes, I agree. I don't like the model poses very much either. I don't blame her for the dress or stockings (of course I don't like one of them), but the shoes look absolutely tacky & horrible to me, JMO.
What happened with Letizia?

Now, this dress I absolutely love. She looks gorgeous in it. The chandelier earrings are adorable. See, she does have her redeeming moments and when she does, boy, she throws it out the park. The shoes again are horrible but they can be forgiven as they are mostly hidden.

An absolute A+ from me!!

I really like the two gowns she wore that look like a long sleeve shirt, a wide belt and a skirt. There's one that's bright pink and one with a white shirt and black skirt that I think are really different and look flattering on her.

Me too
I think that this gown is going to be my all time favourite on Letizia, she looks simply stunning each time she wears it. I wish she had a different hairdo, maybe an updo, that would be perfection. Love the earrings.

Not only an inappropriate style for a Princess, but also the quintessential ‘Fashion Victim’ look:
Wear everything awful that's wrong for you because it's supposed to be in (mainstream) fashion.

Full view:

Boris,I agree with all what you said.
I am sorry to say that this look is vulgar and ridiculous.
The dress is awful specially the waisline.With this short and slevess dress she attracted our eyes to the worst parts of her body:arms and legs.
Not to mention those sandals combined with black stockings
I will have expected such a look on a teenage girl but not on a future queen.
Who says that she is not intested in fashion.For me,she is the typical fashion victim.She neither dress according to her age nor to her rank.
I don't know what happens to her.All her poses are ridiculous.
Today, I am totally shocked and disappointed by her look

She looked very good at the Foreign Press Association awards in London, but in my opinion, she should have tried some hairdo, at least a chignon.

It's a cute dress by itself. But because the skirt flairs out it actually makes it look a little like a maternity dress. And I agree it's too short for her age and her position.

WOW! Navy Dress, stunning. Love the satin contrast on the shoulder, and it is tailored perfectly. Would like to see some sapphires somewhere. P Letizia looks radiant, and the just as a princess should. Glad this look redeems the earlier disaster of the week.

This blue dress is fantastic, I wish that Letizia would wear more blue.

The blue dress is really nice, the best evening dress she currently owns imo. It's a recycle from the PoW's 60th birthday party (2008) and the dinner of honour with the president of the Domenian Republic (2009)

Letizia looks lovely but it's a shame that does nothing with her hair at such events, like an updo.
