This morning, on my crystalclear OLED television, watching TVe Internacional "En Directo de Madrid" I had no any problems to see the glitter from the broche and the eyepopping pendant at the lush pearl collier. It was a festive sight, the robe in rich fabrics (silk satin duchesse?) was luxurious.

The fabric appears to be a rich, silk brocade - I do think it is very beautiful but the shine of the material is highlighted more because of the flash photography and TV lights.

I'd like to see the jacket again worn with a plain fabric skirt as that might tone things down bit for those who think it is "too much"!

Just a big NO in the rich silk satin is not the fabric, it is the very design on the fabric that is the problem, that what ever it is design is way to much for her, it over powers her and takes over her figure. It is a walking wallpaper or wrapping paper look.......something more subtle would have been more appropriate for the occasion, this is a subtle occasion not a glamours ball she is going to. How can the great jewels be seen and enjoyed in this background.....this is one of the worst outfit next to the PJ's I have ever seen on her.

Not a fan of Sofia's outfit today either, the design is quite unattractive to my eyes and I also agree with M. Payton that something more subtle would have been better, as she looks rather out of place here. Sofia normally looks so elegant but this look is a big miss. The outfit also seems to be rather tight on her.
