Winnie - the black dress dates from October 2007, so no maternity dress.
Marsel - you are right, the red dress was worn in April 2009 on the occasion of the gala dinner for the Indian president.
Marmi - I agree with you, I think it's the same skirt, only comes across as a different colour in different light conditions.

I think many people agree that this was Letizia's best look ever in terms of gala wear:

the only thing that I found odd about the design is the over-the-top bust, too much for such a slender woman (you'll only notice on side view)

I think I am the very few people who really doesnt like this dress, I think this was one of her worst looks. I dont know what it was, the sheer sleeves that made her arms look too thin and muscular or was it the bustier part or the cut which was not flattering, I really dont know. The shade of red was more of an orange

I think this dress is the best from Princess Letizia's fashion wardrobe.

Sometimes I wonder if the white dress might have been just a loan or something... If it wasn't: the dress is too nice to just gather dust in a large wardrobe.
Letizia could retire some of her old dresses (maybe the silver one she wore so often.. and that has been altered again and again) and wear this one instead.
Well, and if the dress doesn't look good with a sash she could wear it for other formal dinners or whatever. :)

This is my favorite gown worn by Letizia followed by the green gon she wore during the State Visit with Russia if I'm not mistaken. I like the off-the-shoulder style rather than the V-neck style. It's much more elegant. The white gown she wore during WA 40th birthday was also very nice. I agree it would have looked better if she was wearing a tiara. I also love her pre-wedding gown. The design was marvelous. Evening gowns with typical spanish designs suit her better i.e. silver pre-wedding gown and the red skirt gown during F&M wedding.

1/10 concert for victims of terrorism

Black outfit, new jacket

I really like the jacket, a plain shirt WITHOUT any applications would have been better. Jacket, shirt & trousers seem to be different shades of black ... and finally some decent shoes!

The jacket is actually a repeat - she wore it during a private trip to a ballet in February 2008 image

I totally agree with you - this dress is one of her best. It's simple and although it stresses Letizia's bony arms I like it. The only thing which in my opinion spoilts her outlook is the shape of the earrings...

I really loved that white dress also. The beautiful earrings really set it off too IMO. I wonder why she doesn't wear them more?

I love the jacket, very very stylish. The detail is beautiful.

LadyFinn, I totally agree with you.
Letizia's jacket looks great, the pattens are unordinary!

Forgive me for being an exception here.No matter how much I like CP Letizia's fashion sense,she let me down this time.I find this particular jacket quite ugly and the reason is exactly this pattern/embroidery.

Hate is a very harsh word, but I'm not a fan of it either. I do not like the fact that the blacks are all a different shade. Not a favorite outfit of mine.....

I think the jacket is ok, a bit spanish, 18th century type of embroidery. It is for a solomn occasion in the evening so she could not look too glamorous but not too casusal either.

Well I dont know if the dress code demanded black, but if it did, this was a way of adding a bit of something without breaking it
