i don't dislike her arms, they look well toned and are worth showing. the press has been mentioning that they are toned not due to exercise but due to a strict diet, apparently. i also like that top but the two shades of black look off. i also wish she'd do something different with the hair - that 'curly updo' hairdo is starting to be her go-to look and is looking rather boring.

Princess of Asturias concert

I liked the look with the cape ...

but after taking it off, oh dear, spaghetti straps for an evening concert? Yikes. She looks like a starlet, not like a queen.

Her look is modern although not trendy, IMO. I like this a lot. She's completely at ease in this look and I think that adds to her beauty.

I agree, the look with the cape is lovely. But when the cape is away, it is so disappointing to see Letizia go with this Red carpet starlet look again. The dress looks like it is from a cheap material. And the leather belt doesn't suit with the dress. I also dislike her hairdo, it doesn't look good on her.

The look was lovely with the cape but the dress would be more suited to Madonna working the redacarpet and not a queen of Spain ,so it a big miss for me.

Lovely cape, but that's it. Not a good look at all.

I honestly don't see anything vulgar. Perhaps not regal enough, but it isn't garish, or showimg too much something. I have trouble seeing how it's vulgar. Certainly younger queens aren't going to dress like Queen Sofia

They said not a fan of the dress. But she looks stunning in the cape. Her hair is beautiful

Yes, way too spare and sexy for a queen, but her hair and makeup are great

That dress would be alright for a night at the disco... The upper part looks like a top used as underwear...

Princess of Asturias Awards

I like the hair but that's about it. Dress is very disappointing, another tank top shift dress, the pattern is ugly, shoes not my cup of tea.

Very disappointing because the PoA Awards is one high profile event that deserves better than just another Varela (my guess) shift dress that could be worn at any other event. The tank top style is very unflattering, I am so tired of it.

No comparison to the elegant outing of last year, the grey/black flamenco dress with pearls.

She has worn so lovely outfits during the PoA Awards but this year I agree with you all, this is not a dress for this event. And she has not nice arms.

Its a vast improvement on last nights outfit and her hair looks great but no where near the elegance of last years awards which was among best looks at the previous awards ceremonies .

She looks stunning from the neck up IMO, I hope she tries this hairstyle again because it suits her so well.

The dress is not my favourite and it's typical Varela design, but it's ok. The shoes are a no and of course compared to last year incredible appearance this lacks a lot of impact, but it's a fine look. Not the best, nor the worse she had worn to the awards.

i like her dress this year but not as much as last year's. it is, as usual, by felipe varela. no innovation there - nor did we expect it. seems that letizia knows who she wants, which in a way is a shame as she could be showcasing so much spanish talent, but she keeps only wanting varela. disappointing.
