I loved the dress in motion on TV. It looses a bit of charm in the photos to me, but the Princess still looks very sophisticated.

She looks spectacular! Don't know what happened over the summer holiday to make her step her game up again, but she looks amazing.

I agree that something has happened in terms of the family deciding to step up on their professional public image and it shows on Letizia for the so much better.

While I like the style of the dress in general (similar to last year) I think it is badly tailored and in an unflattering colour, the lace is hanging off Letizia's upper body and the grey flower details look odd, from far it reminded me of mud spots. I dont get why the dress needs a skinny belt in addition to the busy pattern.

Its great to see her hair up and her wedding earrings back, but the hairdo makes her look pretty old with a frozen face.

Despite Letizia's dressing lows of the past years, she usually sparkelled at the PoA Awards, her prestige event. I thought last years look was much better, dramatic but youthful.

Well Duke, I have the feeling the frozen face is because she doesn´t quite feel herself with this hairstyle - it looked like she didn´t dare to move her head...
or maybe a doctor helped with the cheeks?

concerning the dress I have to say I liked it very much - especially when I saw it on TV - it was much better in movement as somebody already quoted, I think this fit - not too tight - is wanted, and thats why there is a belt which I liked very much.

This time she dressed and styled herself her age and you argue she doesn t look youthful enough - the other times she styles herself youthful and you criticize

Just curious - which age level are you - so I can see why you argue the way you do?

She looked amazing. Dress is fantastic for her, I love the color, cut and details. Hairstyle is maybe too 'big' for Letizia, but I don't care, she's gloving.

IMO her outfits have improved considerably over the past few months, away from the overly casual and cheap-looking stuff which bordered on the inappropriate, and towards a far more elegant and professional look (again). It was about time.

I like the overall look here including the updo, the dress is beautiful and IMO not meant to cling tightly, but the color is a disappointment.
There's something very 'Old Lady' about the muted dusty shade, while it would have been far nicer and more flattering for Letizia in a stronger and warmer or even a light pastel shade.

I really liked the dress, the fit and the style but the only downside of the dress is the color which ages her IMO and is unflattering. The shoes could've been the same or similar shade of the dress. I really liked her hair style, elegant but nothing new IMO.

Any word on the designer? Kind of looks a bit like Valentino.

It´s from Felipe Varela, as is the clutch. The shoes are from Magrit.

I think Letizia looks amazing, I love the dress it looks so beautiful in motion. I would have perfered black shoes but it seems like everyone is obsessed with nude shoes.

The dress is stunning. And her makeup and hair look beautiful. Maybe the "old" Letizia has returned. The only thing that I don't really like are the shoes. But other than that -- wonderful!
