It's surely one of her best dresses. A simply gorgeous color. I would have liked it to see it with hair all up for a change.

Why ? He still made her new red gown last year. Somehow I think Caprile's style is a bit too old fashioned these days, he still favors the old time royal looks with big balloon skirts. I'd like to see her in one of master pieces of Elio Berhanyer, it would be a nice tribute to this old fashion legend.

The rumour is that Caprile talked to the press about Letizia so he's ruled out as a designer, but we'll see. About Elio I don't know I've been reading interviews of him and I think that Letizia prefers someone more discreet as a designer but who knows?

That was just a rumor. Caprile did give a couple of interviews, but it was a few years ago, she still bought his clothes in 2008 (for JC's 70th birthday) and 2009 (the red gown). Since Caprile only made coutures, the price of his clothes is higher than Varela's, that could be the main reason she bought less of his clothes now IMO.

Maybe they were some of the dresses that he did for her when she married and we had not seen before

I only heard of the black gown for the Russian state visit was made 3 years earlier, probably for the Portuguese state visit in the fall of 2006 when she couldn't attend at the last minute.

I just loved Letizia's blue gown. So gorgeous!! That color is so amazingly flattering and beautiful on her. I loved the cut, the style, the strap going over one shoulder, and the detail. She looked so beautiful. A+!!

I think that when she married Caprile designed for her a number of dresses for galas, not only the ones she used before the wedding.

The Princess has approximately 12 Lorenzo Caprile's dresses, she has dressed all of them (except the dreeses of the wedding of Denmark and the wedding of Beltrán) in several occasions. Lorenzo Caprile's clothes are more expensive and she reserves them for the acts of State. She has many acts, and probably every season balances her budget in clothes, depending on the agenda and on the type of programmed acts.

Thanks, so we'll have to wait to the Victora's wedding and see if she uses Caprile again.
So she had designed this dresses when she married P. Felipe or later?

Oh, this is one beautiful dress for sure! I also liked this hairstyle for a change, but I feel like the black cardigan inside the palace was unnecessary.

I can't say much about the dress, need a closeup for that, but I love her hairdo. It's nice to see waht she can do with her hair.

Well, what I can see of her dress it looks lovely! i must agree that the cardigan seems superfluous indoors... Maybe palaces are drafty? :)
I do love her hair, finally!

That's right, the dress is sleeveless. Nice to see a new hairdo, she should keep it up for the evening events.

Not a fan of the cardi or the shoes but the dress is pretty and the hairdo nice for a change. The dresscode for this event in the Royal Palace is pretty low key with evening suit therefore the dress is a good choice (similar to PoA Awards where it was worn for the first time).

The SRF are avoiding gala at the moment, nothing since the 2 constitutional events in January.
