The ensemble is hideous. While I understand Infanta Elena's desire to recycle some things in her wardrobe, this sartorial creation should be thrown away. The bag looked great though.

I agree - the jewelry is lovely and sadly that's the only thing we can say something good about concerning this outfit.

That outfit just doesn't suit her, she shouldn't wear so many bold colours at once.

Even though EVERYONE noticed the bolero, there was no focal point because the big skirt kept drawing attention down. It was just out of proportion, IMO.

And yes, Elena is regrettably unfortunate-looking. But she can look quite pretty in the way Princess Anne, the Princess Royal, can occassionally look quite pleasant and approachable. Besides, Elena has the most fantastic body. A fitted skirt with a bit of a slit to show her amazing legs would have been a much better choice. And yes, a different color.
You miss the point. Yes, she is not "pretty", but all the pretty cheerleaders will be relying on surgeons at her age, whereas she has terrific bone structure, elegance, a regal bearing and presence!

I would love to have seen her after she ditched the patriotic matador jacket after the wedding and before the Reception, as off-the-sholder, spagetti straps or even strapless would not be appropriate for her in a church. With her hair style, tiara and the grand scale of what we could see of the lower dress I bet it was a truely fabulous creation on a scale a'la Queen Margethe. Elegant and not a bit insipid as were most of those in pastels.

The pearls and necklace are indeed nice but don't go well with the entire look.

I will forgive the wedges this time, and the rest of the outfit looks very nice.

Lovely outfit - I'm sure she chose to wear red in order to honour their team. Nice gesture! :)

She looks very nice. Wedges are a great choice esp since it's summer.

A very dramatic look, she pulls it off very well IMO. I never liked Letizia in black lace and mantilla for example.

The queen and Elena are the ones that look best with this kind of clothes.

^ I agree, Q.Sofia looks lovely in your avi photo, Melibea! And what about Infanta Cristina? I think she can pull it off as well.

Thanks but Q.Sofia has a look with mantilla that I love even more, I will try and look it up for you

I didn't forget Cristina but imo the queen and Elena look better in mantilla than Letizia and Cristina. And I suppose that Cristina thinks the same as in Felipe's wedding she used a hat and not a mantilla like her sister

I fully agree with you. They have that special air about them, which makes them look authentically natural in the Spanish ensembles.

Is it any special protocol or national use, ruling the use of the mantilla, or they can wear it simply when they like to??

Well no one stops them from wearing a mantilla when they like , but it's usually reserved to formal military events and some religious ones.
