I agree it is a lovely look for the Infanta.

I guess I'm on my own here since I'm not a huge fan of this look. It's very 'Elena', but for me the dress is a little loud and doesn't go too well with her jacket/blazer.

The flowery shawl adds a nice element to the ensemble. It seems to me that the shawl represent the Spanish traditional element in Infanta Elena's look.

I really like Infanta Elena's look.
Beautiful, but modest dress is the best choice if you have real eye-catcher scarf. The scarf is a real masterpiece. The hairdo was also lovely.

Some real fashion at last - now we're talking!
I love all of her well-tailored jackets and Chanel handbags. The black skirt suit at Cayetana's funeral was perfection!

Infanta Elena wearing a recycled 2010 Oscar de la Renta gown and a Spanish shawl in Vienna last night.Whilst her hair is lovely the cut of the dress does not suit having to wear a Royal Order.I wonder why Elena is wearing the insignia so high where you'd normally see a brooch?

The shawl is the best element of the look. I am surprised to see her wearing a sash.

I'm the opposite, as I think the shawl ruined the look a little. I like the dress, and that shade of red/orange (I can't quite tell as to whether the dress is red or orange or a bit of both) is wonderful. I also wonder why she was wearing a sash, perhaps it was to highlight the fact that she's a member of the SRF since she was in a different country where she might not be known as well as she is in Spain?

This link contains more photos of the look. In truth, I do not like the dress: train and ruffles. I like the shawl on its own. On different, I have to say that Infanta Elena's decollete is perfect.
The additional information is appreciated. I missed the fact that Infanta Elena attended the event in Austria.

The shawl has nothing to do with the dress, especially the color combo, but to me Elena looked great! Extravagant style is amazing on her!

Well, if you didn't know it already, that's definitely a Spanish princess in the pictures! I like the dress and the shawl individually, but the colours clash a little - maybe if the shawl had some large red flowers embroidered on it may have been better. Note she has chosen matching shoes to the shawl.

The shawl fringes and the ruffles on the dress are too much. I think no fringes would have been better I like the colors together.

is my opinion of the look. I am not mentioning excessive pieces of jewellery. Infanta Elena's colourful ensemble from the 1980s was awkward then and is awkward now.

I second that opinion.

I am all for bright colors but that looks like some odd mix of 70's psychedelic and 80's fashion sense, neither of which should ever come out of the closet again.

She's worn it before so there is a very good chance we'll see it again.
