Reception with POTUS in NY

http://www.abc.es/media/espana/2016/...20x349@abc.jpg

recycling a black dress from PoA awards, I like this dress but not the rest, hairstyle is strange and the shoes don't work with the dress.

The black dress is stunning and elegant. It's one of my favorites on her.

I totally agree the hairstyle and the shoes make her look very old fashioned. Besides that, the shoes are too bulky for her delicate frame and the dress style.

Now if she had the same person pick her shoes and hairdresser from the last Reception she would have nailed it. Instead, the delicate lace of her dress makes her shoes look big and clumsy and her hair looks badly dressed.

I have always liked the black lace PoA dress - great to see it repeated but i wish she had kept the original shoes (cause they worked so nicely with the dress) and choose a better hairstyle. This was an occasion for a complete repeat from its first appearance.

I think Letizia's latest dress is very pretty, I like the lacy sleeves. Her hair is also rather elegant, too.

I agree with you, that was my first impression. Her hair does not look right and those shoes? . . .

I would like to see the back of the hairstyle, but from the front it's a miss. I do like the dress but agree that the shoes are too bulky.

Planeta Awards in Barcelona

Old sleeveless top and old HB skirt. The top already looked bad in Chile:

and it still looks bad now. This photo says it all - the bare arms look is beyond flattering and top and skirt are a different material / shade of black

Full look, I don't like the shoes either

Hair, makeup and jewels are very pretty, but the rest very so-so.

Not bothered the outfit is different shades/materials, common enough. But I agree, the bare arms is not a good look on her the outfit itself is nice enough, just the sleeveless look doesn't suit her.

But her hair is stunning. And I love her earrings and love she added a bracelet

Couldn't disagree more. Letizia looked lovely last night. Sometimes different shades can look off, but I think the way she did it last night was fine.

Love it. And I love her arms.

I thought she looked great. That skirt with the wide pleats and wide waistband is very good for her figure. The two blacks don't bother me, and, I loved the shoes

I dont care for the bare arms, they do look unflattering and Letizia looks so much better with long sleeves tops. The outfit was ok, nothing special but I do like the different shades of black.

Commenting on Letizia's bare arms is a bit uncomfortable to me,because I feel like body-shaming, but unfortunately I agree that that look is really unflattering and tends to shadow everything else.
