Queen Letizia's ensemble looked so so. There are ladies, who can pull a skirt-shirt ensemble. Ms Carolina Herrera, for instance.

I agree with the striking simplicity of the blouse perfect posture and perfect fit were all eye catching. The skit was beautiful and original looking. I do feel that a more blouse top,sleeves and softer neckline would have been prettier and she would have looked even better. Pretty hard to compete with a redhead covered in emeralds, so go plain!

I think both QL and PS looked elegant and beautiful. Princess Salma wearing a traditional kaftan with beautiful jewels. QL wearing an elegant very modern and elegant outfit representing modern Spain. QL has a very strong personality and I think she is not going to change the way she dresses or it is going to wear more jewels. I think she wants to maintain a plain look because the austerity in Spain due to the economy.

I agree. It is a perfect combination for both ladies.

Interesting suggestion - but agree it has to be seen.

Agree with you. She is a very beautiful woman and doesn't need much to 'pop' to the observer's attention.

Yes - both women were true to their context. It worked imo.

I agree. No 'competition'. Each did well.

This latest evening outfit was stunning, yet very simple. It reminds me of somehow of Queen Rania's outfit at Felipe's and Letizia's wedding. A lovely be-jewelled necklace would have been a nice addition.

Rania's skirt far more classy (I think it was by Givenchy), as usual what Letizia is wearing is only a poor copy.

Yes, for whatever reason the blouse ends up looking too "severe" and not soft enough for the skirt. The skirt is beautiful.

From the above I would say Letizia got it right. It appears the kind of blouse she was wearing with the long skirt is what one wears, we just have to see Rania's blouse in the above link for verification of that.

Of the two skirts I would go with Letizia's - very classy imo. Rania's is too florid a style for my liking. So it comes down to style. I like Letizia's sense of style in this instance.

Except that Rania has worn that blouse in a daytime event.

I liked Letizia skirt a lot but in no way it's better than Rania's one
You cannot compare a Givenchy skirt with that skirt.

Like someone else said it,Letizia is wearing pale copies made generally by Varela.That's a shame because she could favour other spanish designers.
To be frank Rania's sense of style is always so much better

I personally prefer Letizia's skirt to Rania's. The only problem I see with Letizia's shirt is that it looks too rigid (if it makes sense), an effect caused by the fact that it's too tigh (not having the effect Rania's has in the waist) and the material is not the best (Rania's is also better in this)

Wow, now that truly shows how different people's tastes are. To me Renia's skirt looks really cheap as compared to Letizia's. That "lace' overlay reminds me of a creation that was on sale at Macys during the holiday season. It reminds me of my grandmother's tablecloth no matter who designed. Actually why I enjoy this forum as the taste of so many individuals are expressed.

I wore an outfit similar to Rania's when I was dancing in a folk dance program in fourth grade. My costume represented Mexico (and not very well!).

Recycled white dress at Mallorca reception

I don't like the dress too much, it has a superfake bust. An updo would have been nice.

I agree. It's a wonky (is that even a word?) looking dress but it looked best when paired with the necklace and the updo.

The outfit was ok but it needed maybe a necklace to polish off the look.

I think it is a nice and glamorous summer look on Doña Letizia. No complaints.
