Queen Sofia at the Easter Mass at the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca on March 31, 2013, wearing a combination of a dark skirt and a jacket with a flower print, looks great on her:

At least Queen Sofia wears a black skirt what brings the wild flower pattern a bit down. I wouldnt have worn this when attending mass but its not as bad as Elena's colour mess.

After a long thinking, I´m going to say that I like it.
The jacket isn´t the prettiest one I´ve ever seen, but at least it´s colourful and it´s well-matched with the black skirt.

I don't know what they were thinking? quite a spread of colors and mismatch of styles. But I like the fact that the Queen chose a skirt to go along with her flowery jacket . . . at least it gives something light to talk about . . .

I don't know what it is about Palma de Mallorca that makes the usually well-dressed Queen Sofia wear flowered clothing.

The floral jacket is nice, but not suitable for an Easter Mass.

Sofia pulling all the strings to look FABULOUS at her event in New York, fantastic gown, fantastic look for her. I love those pearls. No way she would have left this event to her DIL who was in the country at the same time

Yes, she can not lose the opportunity to renew her wardrobe with dresses of Oscar de la Renta (Free? with a big discount?).

A dress by Oscar de la Renta with the same embroidery.

Its Sofia's showstopper event. The red dress she wore in one of the last events is breathtaking as well. I don't know if she pays for these dresses or if they are a gift by de la Renta.

To be honest, these are proper first class gala dresses and its a shame that Letizia chose - from the beginning - these strange mediocre cheap looking skirt/bustier combos from Varela eg for State Events (apart from one or two Caprile outfits that hit the bar). I've never understood the supposed problem with the budget, as long as the designer is Spanish, who cares.

Fabulous! Sofia looks the epitome of regal elegance. Letizia is not there yet IMO; she does pretty princess. Sofia captures "monarch" and stateliness beautifully between the gown and the jewels.
