I have to say that I don't like the dress... That fabric belt spoils everthing IMO

The soft blue colour became Queen Letizia well. However, the short lace trench is atrocious, and a sateen (?) dress is so so. This particular Varela ensemble is a poor man's Burberry.

Am I the only one who is getting a little tired of all this lace? Not just with Queen Letizia but with everyone.

Agree. I also get tired of boucle. Linen. Silk. A lot in a season is too much.

Exactly!
I really don't know who is worse, Varela or Natan. And the problem is not only the design and choice of fabric, it is also the confection.

I lreally like the soft blue shade used, but I'm so over everyone wearing lace. It's so done.

I love her in this. IMO she is one of the few who really looks well in lace because she is so slim. Wish for a haircut or hairdo.

The belt is ok but the typical trench trademarks on the back and the sleeves looks really strange on lace.

The colour is lovely and suits her, but that´s all. I hate the jacket, it looks like a bathrobe, and I´m also tired of lace

Beautiful colour but really, a lace trenchcoat? No! Just no!

The blue is a really nice colour for her but I'm not sure the design of the lace jacket. Queen Rania wore a similar lace coat from Burberry not long ago, it was a much better one. Now that I think about it, I really admire how Letizia supports Spanish brands but once in a while, I'd like to see her wearing clothes from international big brands.

Her outfit was hideous IMO. There was nothing right about it. It reminded me of a very poor quality copy of Burberry's lace coats. The coat/jacket not sure what it was was at a weird length, the tie to casual, the finishing was bad. The heels was too much of a match with the look.

Varela is very bad, he has no own ideas but copies from high level brands, the quality of his designs is not worth the money

Very nice - but I, too, am wondering at all the lace. Certainly must be good for the lace-makers.

Thing is - lace has it's beauty, and there have been some lovely examples of lace dresses recently. It is the trend right now. Even I have a section in my closet for the lace outfits I've purchased. A lace coat, though, does not seem 'sensible'.

I thought the outfit was awful and looked cheap. Also, I don't think that shade of blue suits her. And I wish she would get her split ends sorted.

The idea of a lace coat is interesting, but not practical! I like the lace, I like the design and I like the colour - but not all three together!

I thought the lace trench look was atrocious. I don't even like the expensive Burberry trench! Although the blue was a lovely color, I didn't like the matchy blue shoes. This whole outfit was a huge miss, in my book.

I like the Burbery coat but I love lace. I don't, however, like Queen Letizia's outfit. I think it's the tied belt and the matchy shoes that seem to overpower her small frame.

Im usually a little harsh on Letizia because of her lack of accessories. I like this color and I think she looks pretty.
