Oh yes, you're right. I can't stand this outfit. I like her hair though and her shoes too.

I also agree. One of her worst evening looks.
I especially dislike it when two shades of a color are very close but do NOT match, like the polo-shirt-blouse and the skirt here.
The belt looks like one of those awful 1980s elastic things, worn with leggings over everything - a 'waist cincher'... not nice at all, let alone elegant.
Hope this was the last time we saw this combo.

The blouse and the skirt separately are quite nice, I’m not even the overall pinkness of the look. However, I don’t think they looks well combined. The blouse and skirt are made of different fabrics and were presumably intended for different occasions: the blouse looks something you’d wear either during informal, or during semi-formal event, while the skirt is obviously for more former, even gala events. The fact the skirt and blouse were of different shades of pink didn't help either. No comments on the black belt.

I absolutely loved Letizia’s make up though: she looked stunning and natural at the same time.

I usually love this Gown,
simple, elegant very Letizia's style, but, I don't like this time with the black large Belt
Letizia's face is thinner and tired than usually

Really not good outfit, she should retire the blouse and that hideous belt and try something new with the skirt... make up and hair looks good.

I like the black belt although a more expensive-looking one could be better. I really dislike that blouse. It should be relegated to daywear or the trash. A more elegant and evening top would be sooo much better.

Letizia has had so many wonderful evening looks in the past and can wear a lot of different clothes well. This outfit just doesn't live up to it.

I like both pieces, not so much together. The pink polo shirt can be paired with a black pencil skirt for a daytime event or a more casual evening event, a light pink transparent blouse (darker pink is too much for me) would look nice with this traditional Spanish layered skirt.

I love the skirt, but it doesn't look very nice when paired with the casual blouse and that particular belt. The long ruffled style of the skirt looks really nice on Letizia's petite figure.

i like the pink ruffle skirt but not with the way Letizia combined it this time - the black belt should stay with the original black dress (which was a nice look and needs repeated) and maybe a new top or the blouse should have been worn with this skirt at the dinner
This is the stuff of fairytales

Recycled outfit, the colour is absolutely beautiful. She has had different tops with this skirt. I think that the belt is also recycled, the belt is a little bit too wide. Her hair and make up are very nice, as always.
I am not crazy about this outfit. Although, the only one thing I like about her outfit is her wide black belt.

Oh dear. IMHO, the elastic-band that she is wearing as a belt is the worst, and hardly befitting a CP. I will concede however, that her hair and makeup looks very soft and quite flattering. That said, it is not a regal nor an elegant look for the CP.

Letizia at the private dinner with the Swedish King. A recycled outfit. Both Letizia and Elena looked nice.

Dinners at Zarzuela are not too formal so both Letizia & Elena have hit the mark, they even look more formal than Queen Sofia in her shirt.

I like Letizia's outfit, the skirt is precious and goes well with the black blouse. The double platform Mary-Janes are ugly as hell, we've been there before. Thankfully, no black tights.

I don't mind this outfit - i think it suits the occasion. I am not normally a fan of patterned skirts but this one looks quite nice with the blouse.

It's good choice of the outfit for a dinner with the other King.
It's heavenly better than her normal sweaters.

I think this skirt is incredibly beautiful and am glad to see it recycled again.

I like a lot this skirt, I think it suits Letizia very well. The shirt looks perfect with the skirt, I´m glad she repeated this outfit.
I just don´t like those shoes...I´ve seen them lot of times, but they seem to be her favourites...
