Queen Sofia's Fashion and Style Part 1: June 2006 - January 2011

You all may me aware that the Queen of Spain has worn hats only a very few times. The tradition of wearing hats is mostly related to northern European countries, yet the Queen has had to wear them a few times mostly because of the protocol so I'd like to share these pictures with you.

Picture from Corbis.

1) The Queen in the Netherlands


2) The Queen in London.

It's totaly obvious that all the Queen's hats are very tasted....I'm not sur that for Sophia it's her cup of tea. But she is wearing with elegance "bibi" or " capeline". All it's a question of presence !

Queen Sofia's Fashion and Style

I have opened this forum because there are others on Queens and Princesses on the same topic.

The Queen Sofia is the whole expert in repeat and to recycle clothes.

The Princess Letizia also repeats often clothes. The women of the Royal Spanish House are in the habit of being very practical in this sense.

She also wore this outfit when arriving in Thailand for the recent celebrations.

That makes it a total of five times she's worn it in the span of a month or so.

This thread is very appropriate because it's the proof that for a "buzy" Queen it's absolutly normal to repeat some part of her wardrobe.
Can you imagine the lengh of the Sofia's dressings particulary if she has for habit to keep during a long time the clothes that she like.
If you have the curiosity to watch on the web of the Case Real and to throw an eye on the agenda of the Queen since many years, you can see that she repeat some years after years clothes that she didn't wear during part of times.

For me, it's mean that first the Queen have a lot of official trips, acts, conferences, meetings for which she need an estupendous wardrobe but according her own style ( the same since a long time as the Queen Elisabeth ) with a budget which is not these of Queen Elisabeth or Queen Beatrix. Then it's mean too that Sofia is a woman who obviously don't like waste money that is a virtue for her reputation, isen'it ?

Great job lula! This dress is one of my favourites ever worn by Queen Sofia, so I'm glad she has worn it more than once

I like this photo... :o


I think the Queen do this a lot. I mean, she buys a new outfit and then she uses it sometimes in a short time, and then we just see them after some months or a year.
We can see this by some photos of outfits that lula post:
- Yellow outfit -- post #1
- Flower dress with blue blazer -- post #2
- Red outfit -- post #2
- Purple outfit -- post #5
- Green outfit -- post #9
- Flower outfit -- post #11
- Cream outfit -- post #12
- Flower dress with red blazer -- post #12
