Gorgeous dress with gorgeous hairstyle on a gorgeous woman with a perfect posture. Letizia is great to watch, the spaniards can be proud of her.

Stunning. She does seem to wear a similar style dress, but she looks so good in it, I can see why.

The red/black combo is lovely on her.

I don't find it boring in the least Yes, she worn this style before, but if it works why not? She looks fabulous.

It indeed work for her but once you see the style over and over, to me it gets boring as there is nothing new in style but in color.

Formal Occasions

Several have remarked on the business suit/cocktail dress being worn at this occasion. Isn't it possible that is to make it more comfortable for those who are invited who may not own formal garb? I would imagine that not everyone invited to the dinner is rich or even well-to-do. Not every man owns (or wants to rent) a tuxedo, and not every woman owns a full-length gown. It's much more egalitarian to have functions at which a cross section of the populace can feel comfortable.

She looks glorious! This is a great example of "the total package"-hair, makeup, dress, shoes, accessories-matched to stunning overall effect. I love the neckline which really shows off her hairstyle.

wow i thought Letizia was impressive with her beaded cocktail dress at the french dinner - one of her best looks of this year in my opinion. This style of dress works for her and i dont think she needs to change what works

I'm bored with Letizia and her little black dresses,if she jazzed it up with accessories such as a bangle or a brooch it wouldn't look so puritan.

Beautifully worded. I have always thought that it is one of the many duties of all Heads of State to make sure all in their presence are comfortable. Clothing can accomplish this, I just never thought about it this way. Thank you for your enlightenment. You have a good heart to think of other's feelings in such a way.

have you ever been invited to a business casual affair and had to buy something new? Or casual Fridays, a whole new wardrobe? No I completely disagree with your idea as far as women are concerned. Men is another story. A cocktail dress is just as much as an evening dress, in fact, you can get away with a lot more with a long , simple dress than a short one and they are easier to sew yourself.

No, I have never had to purchase any type of clothing for any occasion. I guess I have been lucky in that respect. But, I certainly know some that have drastically misinterpreted what casual business affair means. Also, casual Fridays does not mean something you also wash the car in. My husband did have to rent a morning suit and tails once for a formal early wedding as was the written dress code. Suits and hats for women. Night time reception's code was tux for men floor length only for women. Even then it was stated that for women, sleeveless was not permitted. And we followed or didn't go. That was that. Things are much more lax today, which I find both nice and sometimes bizarre. I am sure that dress codes still exist for many occasions [I know they do for many Buckingham Palace events and are written in detail down to no bare legs] I remember Tom Hanks' wife Rita Wilson complaining about that just two years ago when they were at a reception there. So what some might find casual, others might consider that is their Church and funeral attire and their casual is ripped jeans and T shirt with Mickey Mouse covering it. All depends how you look at it and your own way of life.

Yes she does and all black is a very elegant look. No "spot of color" need for this perfection. I personally might have splashed with more silver toned jewelry [not gold] to complement.
