Cristina is standing next to the designer, Oscar de la Renta. Maybe her outfit was designed by him.
He would be a wonderful designer for Letizia - he has designed clothes for Marie Therese of Luxembourg.

I don't think Cristina's set was from Oscar de la Renta. The belt looked matronly, very un Oscar de la Renta.

Here is from Oscar de la Renta

Couldn't agree with you more, the top is nice, but the pants are just plain awful!

Yes her hair didn't look good for the outfit, both Infantas to me have aswful taste on clothes and they don't know how to dress according to their body shapes.

I agree, Laura Ponte looked horrible (does she ever look nice? even on her wedding day she looked sad and was strangely dressed), the rest not as bad IMO.

She said she was born with a sad face , not a sad person. I like Laura's look at her wedding day, very 20s style, suits her well. Her daily fashion style is rather on the edge, not anything I would like to see on myself. I like her, she seems one of the few smart ones among the models, knows exactly how to promote herself without crossing the borderline. She had been very successful in Milan/Paris before Betran without a great height or stunning beauty.

I have to say that I am not keen on the outfit chosen by Infanta Elena. It looked casual for the occasion. The jacket was too colourful to my taste. The hairstyle is nice though.

I don´t like this dress at all, it looks like plastic and Cristina is too old for it.

I agree with everything you said.
I don't like the outfit at all. The jacket looks like a survivor of the 80s.
The hairdo was lovely.

I don't mind the jacket, but the pants did nothing for her, plus they were a little too short. I would have done the jacket with perhaps a skirt that had some subtle beading or something and some different shoes as well.

Her hair is OK, but I'm not too fond of the Victorian curls, but it is better than just being pulled back into a knot at the base of her neck like she sometimes does.

The jacket is very 1980s! The pattern looks like something that you would see on a Navajo blanket. Her hair is very pretty, though.
