Love the shade of green on Letizia. And I hate the color green :)

The style and the green is beautiful

But as I said last time, the Center is horrid. Reminds me of an inkblot test

I was looking at the group photo and trying to pick what was wrong. You nailed it, the hair! I think every ensemble has requirements for hair, and accessories such as hat, bag, gloves and shoes. Add to this the engagement at which it is worn.

Some engagements require more, some less, and this one demanded more. One of Letizia's smooth updo's would have been marvellous and lifted the 'status' of the dress itself. It would also have allowed us a great view of her fabulous emerald (?) drop earrings

Sadly, the blush court shoes were a complete bust. Why on earth Letizia chose to wear them when there was absolutely no tie to the dress is beyond imagination. It's almost like, OK I've put my dress on and just picked the shoes from the front of the closet or, more likely, each ensemble for the tour was not laid out to ensure all bases were covered and someone forgot to pack the shoes.

You nailed it. Many times her looks aren't "finished" and it seems that something is missing. Not always, of course, but too often

For years a lot of "fashion" designers claimed that blush on nude heels were a must no matter what outfit a woman was wearing as it elongated their legs. I always hated this look. Shoes should complement the outfit. They are part of the overall look. I have seen everyone of the royals from every country doing this at one time or another. I just don't get it. We know she has black shoes which would have looked like she cared! I have to get used to this type of dress with different color at waist as it will be [already is in NY and Italian couture design houses] seen often. I believe if in lighter shades it might look nicer. But then it always takes me awhile to accept an odd change. JMHO

Exactly ,so often her looks lack finesse ,a little more attention to detail and Letizia will prefect this,her outfits/hair are 100 times better than 5 years ago.

Letizia repeating her grey Carolina Herrera dress, I don't like anything about this dress, huge shoulder pads, ugly applications, too short, the bottom looks nightgownish.

I think the dress is nice, but for me it is too short and it would be better if she had worn tights.

The dress is so-so but her hair and make-up are stunning-perfect (from the neck up, anyway LOL!)

Queen Letizia at audiences at the Royal Palace today, May 12. The waistcoat is something different and special, but I don't like it anyway here:



** Full view ** Full view 2 ** Upper part ** Upper part 2 **

it's the same style as the black blazer by Hugo Boss

The black blazer looks interesting, however, as a waistcoat this style isn't working because it looks lopsided. Perhaps v neck blouse would have worked better?

It's a nice style. I think it's the color. Needs to be in a bolder color. With the top under, looks like a lopsided jacket and not a waist coat. Needs more contrast.

A very boring look and the style doesn't flatter her. At least with the black version, the contract of color underneath is nice.
