Uhm I like the updo but there's something wrong with the two shades of blue of the jacket and scarf

The State Visit has been cancelled after the awful tragedy of the Airbus crash at the Alps.

The pattern of the dress give an odd optical illusion around her legs.

Both Felipe and Letitia look immaculately dressed and well co-ordinated.

Her arrival in France was lovely. Great to see her in a nice updo for the daytime. Really like this dress and jacket. Smart and appropiate for the event

This outfit was well put together. Nice jacket and a dress with very lovely colours and interesting pattern. And on top of everything, great hairdo.

It's a business outfit, not a state visit outfit. Varela has no clue and no sense for the occasion of big events.

So Amen!

And to all posters who probably think, "Ah... come on... just hats and gloves, pffff": think about State Visits with Elizabeth II, Silvia, Máxima, Camilla, etc. just going 'business as usual', reviewing military ceremonial or riding in a gala carriage, all bareheaded, just like everyone else.

I think Queen Letizia underestimates the importance and force of the so-called theatre of state and how important a dignified decorum is for a monarchy.

Duc et Pair,

Visiting the notoriously informal President Hollande, I'm surprised the Queen didn't wear jeans and a leather jacket.

Well, Monsieur Normal, (eeeeh....) is indeed "informal" but the whole of Paris was gloriously dressed for the Spanish State Visit.

The ceremony at the L'Hôtel des Invalides was surprisingly low-key but I have the idea that was done because of the tragic event: there was no red carpet, there was no dais, there was no 'back up' of officers in grand tenue, the military were not in ceremonial tenue.

Two possibilities: this is the new low key approach à la Hollande or this is a sober version because of the plane crash.

Seriously? People are quibbling about how she was dressed and the visit has now been cancelled because of the horrible tragedy that happened? I'm amazed that this has even come up given the events of the day. We should be giving our thoughts to those who lost loved ones in the crash instead of dwelling on whether or not you think the Queen was dressed appropriately or not. There is a time and place for things and my opinion this is not the time for this.

I agree, time and place. And this is the place in the fashion forum! Yes, it is terrible, that's exactly the reason we need frivilous places to chat about non important things. We see and hear about terrible things all the time but would go nuts if we only thought about that. This is a safe outlet for forgetting the world a bit. What's so horrible about that?

There's is an appropriate place about this tragedy on the royal Forums :

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post1761753

Here in France we have been deeply shocked by this horrible crash and i'm sure all our thoughts and prayers were with the families during this horrifying moment.

But, after all these terrible news and images, it's also good to escape from this world and talk and share, on a lighter note, some thoughts about fashion or anything relating royalty, because after all , this is the right place to do it.

So as i understand your deep emotion about this tragedy, i also deeply regret your patronizing tone. I don't think that anyone on this forum tonight is insensitive about what happened . To say otherwise, and to try to make some members feel guilty because they just want to take a deep breath after some very very dark hours is just rude in my opinion.

I love the jacket but I don't like the print of the dress.

Letizia's outfit was nice but I didn't like the lighter strip the front of the dress as it gave an illusion that it was see-through. The jacket was a nice match but not perfect, it was too suit looking for such a lovely dressy dress IMO.

If a jacket it has to be one colour with the striped dress underneath, I didn't think a blue jacket with black applications was a good choice.

All the posts quibbling over the dressing differences between royal houses has been moved to a separate thread, as this was not the thread to do so.

Letizia's hair looked absolutely perfect for the French State visit!

I love the outfit and the hairdo. I thought she looked beautiful.
