The black and white dress is truly awful.

From the sublime to the ridiculous!

This is king of odd, usually at these events the ladies appear to match somewhat in the style or color. This time it looks like neither of them got the email

I can't believe how high those heels look. Maybe it's just the angle but wowza how does one stay upright?

I really like the dress and especially the upper part with the neckline from the front and the back - naughty but something special... not everybody can wear it - but I think, she can.

The black and white dress was disappointing IMO. The stripes aren't pretty, too many straps and it seemed outdated.

Nice dress. Wrong event.

Nice for Liza Minelli in Cabaret. Not so for a Queen of Spain during a State Visit. Too often the most important lady of the grand country of Spain is easily outshadowed. During last military parade a flamboyant and glamorous Minister of Defence outshone her.

Letizia seems not to have a natural understanding for the "theatre of state". Putting on a dirty and damaged diadem with the frame-wrapping matching the hair color of the former Queen shows a lack of understanding and detail. She showed it again with this amusement show dress.

I like the dress but don't think it was appropriate for this event.

Agree with you, she has not the feeling of "keep the function image", not the difference between a limelight star and a royal lady. Generally these thinks come with education since childhood, and by making the appropriate marriages among same class, issue did not appear. Now, royals marry out of their class, but some of these ladies have the innate capacity to feel how to fit into their role, like CP Mary or the Duchess of Cambridge, etc, some ladies dot no have this capacity like CP Mette Marit or Queen Letizia.

Could you post a picture @Duc_et_Pair of "on a dirty and damaged diadem with the frame-wrapping matching the hair color of the former Queen shows a lack of understanding and detail"?

Ansonera, which is the diadem's maker, said that the tiara was not damaged or broken. It was just the odd configuration of the frame that gave that impression.

this belongs to the jewellery thread, where the topic is already being discussed. it is very visible that the diadem has not been put together very well and that the frame cover is very visible too, a lighter colour than Letizia's hair.

It all looks unprepared. The old wrapping, the dirty diadem (the monture is tarnished and needs professional cleaning), the wobbly looking placement. This reveals a lacking eye for detail. And that for the first appearance of such an important heirloom.

Absolutely right @Duc_et_Pair. It shows that her services work insufficiently and herself does not really care about. A quick glance at mirror and she should see all these. In top of that, tiara is not well placed, it goes right... Like the tower of Pisa.

Here are some better pictures. Looks like she is wearing black patent high heels.

Love her earrings and hair. Like the overall top but not the black pockets.

I don't find her under dressed. Looking at pictures, looked like when I go to the ballet. When you get everyone from tuxedos and long dresses, to jeans. and sundresses. And everyone in between. Letizia falls in a nice balanced middle.
