Doesnt this count as evening wear?

Don't like the blouse, there is a gap in the side view

From the 2 photos I've seen I'm not keen and it looks like something Princess Laurentien would wear!

Color is beautiful. I like the top under, or at least neck of it. The earrings are great.

But the coat is shapeless, looks almost like a shirt dress. Maternity wear. and I don't like the sleeves, and the odd trim to them.

Totally lost me at the first layer of ruffles at the three-quarter length sleeves mark and oh her lovely deep rose lipstick clashes mightily with the tangerine nightmare.

Tangerine looks red to me not orange. But I agree, clash with lipstick.

I love the individual pieces, but all together it is too much. Her lip color clashes with the coat, which, paired with the sleek blouse and trousers, reminds me of an artist's smock.

Maybe Maxima could make this outfit work. On Letizia it looks almost clownish.

Unfortunately the coat wears Letizia. The sleeves are too wide/loose for her frame.
The neck tie on her blouse should've called for hair pulled back or up.
The idea behind the look was nice.

Perfect way to describe this look, dazzling. The outfit is wearing her and not the other way around. Too much going on here. Separately the pieces are nice, but put them together and it's a big miss.

Not to be contrary, but I like it. Especially the lipstick. I have a suspicion the whole fits together far better in person than for the camera, with the added vagaries of lighting. JMO.

I may not love this, but it is fine, just fine. She's well covered, stylish, not out of proportion and well groomed. Sorry some of you are appalled at the lip color, but I am just not feeling the horror. And there are no large bugs present.

State Dinner Japan wearing Varela's Disney dress, one of the most beautiful dresses, I like it.

Its a fab dress but I agree, Japan is one of the most prudish courts so showing off some wonderbra neckline is not the smartest choice.

I totally agree with you DOM. Beautiful dress, just not in Japan.

Good dress for a fancy evening out in Málaga. No dress for a State Banquet in the Imperial Palace in Tokyo where half of the ladies wore traditional dress and the other half in conservative mode. Not the first time Letizia seems to miss a fine-tuned antenna. The whole outlook would have been totally different by wearing elbow long opera gloves, then she would have been far more dressed-up.
