Letizia loves to wear them- she has probably worn the most of any of the royal ladies.
She had a lacy one while she was pregnant with Infanta Sofia, a floaty chiffon(?) one that she wore to a party just before/at the very start of her last pregnancy (she had her hair down and curly, if you look for the picture), a nude colored sparkly one, a black lace/white sateen dress (non-maternity), plus some 'suit-dresses' that she has worn- like the pink one she wore to Beltrán Gomez-Acebo and Laura Ponte's wedding.

I'll have to see if I can find the pictures.
____________________

Found some- there were more than I expected. Some of Letizia's cocktail dresses border on day dresses or suits, but then again, that's just Letizia....I included the occasion she wore it, and the designer, if I found it.

Cocktail Dresses 1

Dresses, left to right, top row: White dress with silver accents on the bust, a farewell reception in Palma, by Varela; black lace over light underlay, gala of CIERVAL; Gathered and ruched pale crepe (i'm guessing) with accented banding on the bodice, at a wedding of one of Felipe's friends, possibly by Varela; Black or navy lace from a dinner for the Hungarian president, by Varela
L to R, bottom row: Pink satin dress with lacy (or embroidered sheer) overlay, Mariano Cava's Journalistic Awards; Sparkly gold/beige dress, Laureus gala dinner by Varela; Antonio Asensio Awards, by Varela (same dress as the previous, but with a coat); Black dress with lace over-blouse, Awards Ceremony of the Chamber of Trade of Terrassa, by Varela (looks different from the one above it- the underdress is certainly not the same).

Cocktail Dresses 2

Top row, left to right: white dress, one of her first maternity dresses when she was pregnant with Infanta Leonor, in Japan; silver suit outfit (there's something Jackie O. about it- I like this one) at the wedding of her cousin Abigaíl Rocasolano, by Miguel Palacio ; Ruffle-y pink skirt dress with matching pink shoes and jacket, at the wedding of Beltrán Gomez-Acebo (Felipe's cousin) and Laura Ponte, by Lorenzo Caprile; Little black dress with silk or satin pale pink jacket, from the May before Leonor was born; Coral dress with beige coat just after the announcement of her pregnancy with Infanta Sofia at the Spanish National Day Military Parade.
Bottom row, L to R: Black and white dress with large pattern and black coat while expecting Infanta Sofia, Spanish Geographic Society 2006 International Prizes; Purple (or maybe royal blue) dress, early when expecting Infanta Sofia; Pale pink dress with cardigan while expecting Infanta Leonor, during a visit to Ciudad Real; Red dress worn in Japan, it was one of her first maternity dresses when expecting Infanta Leonor (thankfully they got better after that!).

nordishbynature, if you look at the King Harald's Birthday thread, you will see Princess Madeleine in a beautiful pink cocktail dress.

mary is also quite a good one to look cocktail dresses for, as she seemed to have used quite a few. don't really recall maxima or mathilde wearing them often, and mette-marit doesn't seem a big fan. i'd say of the crown princesses, perhaps letizia and mary are the ones who most use them.

Thanks to everyone for your great pictures. To me Letizia looks better in shorter cocktail dresses than long gowns for the most part. I think it's because she is so slender and petite. Just my opinion.

I agree with you, especially if the gown has a very large skirt, like the green Caprile dress she wore last year.

A cocktail dress or cocktail gown is a shorter-length lady's gown worn at cocktail parties and other semi-formal and black tie occasions.

I agree. Cocktail dresses suit her rather than long gowns bec of her figure. I really like the black gown w/ her hair curled and the white one in Ibiza.
