It's a matter of taste, but I don't think she's drowning in the dress. More on the contrary, I prefer this style of skirt to the slim dresses she usually wears. The bodice is perfect on her (not like i.e. her wedding dress) and that makes everything looks lighter. It looks like a new version of the dress from W&K pre-wedding dinner (that she has not worn ever again), but I like a lot more the top part of tonight dress.

I love about everything about this appearance. She could have worn more jewels but she's stunning regardless, so queenly!

I think it's regal and elegant and the color/design/print is beautiful!

What a wonderful gown on Letizia and one of her best formal appearances in quite a while!

ANNIE S, I so agree with you. Gown just lovely and Letizia wears it well. This full skirt is brilliant. I enjoy her in slim skirts also as not many women her age can wear without many bumps or rolls gathering. I am glad [for this occasion] that a lot of jewelry was not thrown on as the material just needed earrings. The dress carried the effect. Plus, she just looks so happy and Felipe looks a treat also.

She looked stunning, beautiful. She needs volume, the slim skirts make her look like a stick figure. She looked gorgeous.

I couldn't agree with you more.

I would agree that the only thing missing for Letizia's ensemble was a necklace of some note and matching earrings. The earrings she is wearing are somehow rendered insignificant by her "presence".

I only have one major whine . . . and it's not directed at Letizia. Those darned order sashes are just ugly and in this case I see they tried the run a thread to lightly gather the sash just so it would fit on her shoulder. Royal and VIP women of the world unite and tell them to make them in two sizes!

It is really exciting to wait for formal occasions now that some of the younger Queens and CP's are starting to "go large". Some, of course, have already started to go for shape. Shoulders, bust, waist and even hips are starting to emerge. You only have to look at the previous generation of Queens to get a little inspiration.

Queen Margrethe: Probably the most artistic and dramatic gowns.
Queen Sophia: At the same event as Letizia wore her lavender wonder, wore a gown with an amazing skirt on it.
Queen Silvia: Oh to drool over her magnificent collection of Nobel beauties. Madeleine even wore one on her wedding day at her after the reception party.
Queen Sonja: Aside for her unfortunate affection for yellow big bird colour.
Queen Elizabeth: Norman Hartnell did her proud!
Queen Beatrix: She worked well with what she had.

And from those who have already started to "go large":

One of Letizia's best evening looks ever. Everything is perfect: the dress, make up, hairdo. I agree, these kind of dresses look great on Letizia and it is good to see her have one like this because she often uses those slim ones. What a beautiful colour, Letizia should use more this. I just love her hairdo - and how happy she is. And big plus that she wasn't ruining the effect of this gorgeous dress by wearing too much jewellery.

I love this gown! It looks so much better than the usual slim silhouettes. I was hoping for a different tiara though.

I agree that the style is similar to the London gown, that has never surfaced again,what a waste!

The full skirt is what is making her drown in the dress, it it was less puffy then I think it would've been nicer.

It's a long time ago since we saw her in a full gown and I really like it. Although I prefer the one from London, because I loove purple I have still the hope when Máxima visits, Letizia will pull out the big tiaras

I am not a fan of Queen Letizia fashion but in this instance she looks absolutely stunning - no other jewellery was required.

I am in the minority here but I think that even though she looked beautiful she didn't quite impressed me... That kind of gown would suit a curvier figure IMO and the color is a bit off on Letizia...

She looked lovely. Possibly a necklace might have looked good! I find the sash annoying ...

I love that gown, it's a pity she didn't wear it again. Along with that is that blue greek gown at Nikolaos and Tatiana wedding, she never wore it again
