I'm sure we all believe you: a silly yellow magazine publishing a foolish article is not anything new...
The point is that Letizia practically only wears the unknown Felipe Varela in daytime acts, she doesn't wear foreign designers, like Elena or the Queen (and yes, she wears foreign labels, like Versace, Valentino and Oscar de la Renta). She does recycle a lot (how could she not do it, if she’s attending 1 or 2 acts per day?)... but, even so, there's always a silly magazine, inspired by the Peñafiels of life saying that 1/2 of the Spanish Royal House's budget is spent in Felipe Varela's expensive (oh, so expensive ) suits for the Princess of Asturias... this is splendid!

Please, think

I do not see that bad has the clothes that the princess wears; in addition because she must dress as elena or the queen? she must be herself and to dress according to her style.

In addition it is not possible to be requested what they criticized to her before. In addition the important thing is her work; not if wears more or less expensive clothes.

I prefer to a princess worker and who always goes correct in her appearances; that a princess who does not work anything, and above spends much in clothes.

She can keep up her workload but find another spanish designer to make her clothes, one (or several) that would want to do his/hers best and be original when (s)he gets to dress the future Queen in a correct but flattering way. The two are not mutual exclusive:) Spanish fashion is so beautiful, and when looking at spanish celebreties I usuall go wow, how intersting, just look what Caprile can do.

But is that she has confidence in Felipe Varela; a test is that he has always refused to speak of her; whereas Caprile can make wonderful dresses but speaks.

In addition I continue saying that I do not see that bad have her clothes. I like much her style.

In addition to her does not interest to be the most elegant of the princess; but her work.

Not please I do not want that Letizia dress as Elena or the queen; and for me if would be bad; because she would not be she herself. In addition that I like plus the style of Letizia.

Right... Peñafiel and his poisoned articles about Queen Sofia, Don Iñaki and Princess Letizia are the sumus of good journalism

Here is the article (i just post it because rchainho asked)
The article is from september of 2005

LETIZIA'S REVOLUTION IS NOT PLEASING TO THE SPANIARDS


Attempts for part of FELIPE'S woman of altering real standards have been a target of the most hard criticism.


"Want to copy Rania of Jordan but he cannot dress. It spends a fortune in classic "suits" when Mary Donaldson might grow up his style itself like fez. It has no style. " One of the criticism that Letizia received of a specialist in fashion

Some daily journalists already did echo of the fact of many Spaniards of not supporting his princess. They accuses her of being bossy and of be putting on without elegance, in spite of having already spent a fortune in his new closet

To the members of the real family Letizia's fact did not fall well the prince had obliged to redecorate completely his house.

During the engagement, Letizia announced what the first son would be going to have in a public hospital. Now fez reserves in the clinic where the third son of David and Victoria was born.

Letizia gorged herself of being in Palm of Majorca with the real family and obliged Felipe disappearing during two weeks. Then they reappeared in the Asturias and announced that, in future, they are going to change his weekday destiny.

He wants to change the weekday destiny, it stopped having the son in a public hospital and he wants to change the law.

If will have been a girl, the princess is going to press the husband in order that this one alters the Spanish Constitution.


Of gradual and discrete form, Letizia has looked for to change the rules of the game in the Spanish real house.
However, its small revolution has been white of hardest critical on the part of the commentators of the monarchic institutions and the subjects, that until almost idolized the princess here.
The first one of them, and that it caused bad polemic next to the population of the neighboring country, is arrested with the fact of the old journalist to have shown its desire to transfer the destination of the vacations of Summer of Palm of Majorca to the Asturias. By the way, already this year, after passing only some days of leisure with the family in Palm of Majorca the prince Felipe abandoned the region to head, the order of the woman, until a village of the Asturias, Ribadesella, where the grandmother of Letizia lives. According to the Spanish Press, the princes walk same to the search of a house in the locality, situation this that already provoked conflicts politicians between responsible for the chambers of both the regions.
In what he touches to the pregnancy of the princess, when Felipe and Letizia had married said themselves that the first son of these would be born in a public hospital. However, what it seems, this idea already was abandoned, because the future queen of Spain wants luxury and comfort, having already reserved the suite of the clinic where Victoria Beckham had her third son. As if this was not enough, Letizia has defended, the equality of being able inside of the real houses. By the way, the princess arrived exactly to disclose that she would go to pressure the husband so that existed an alteration to the Constitution, in order that in case that came to be mother of a girl it could succeed Felipe. In Spain, as still no was proposal no change to the Constitution, she speculates on yourself that the princes already know that they will be parents of a youngster.
Moreover, the wardrobe of the old journalist and the amount of money that it has expense in remodellings in the decoration of the house where live with Felipe - Letizia it appreciates works of art and antiquities, but too much classic style did not like it the house it prince - also have not pleased the Spaniard. In what it touches to its clothes, the subjects find that the princess could enhance its physical beauty and bet in a more modern wardrobe. This because, although Letizia to spend money rivers in mark clothes, purchase always the same type of parts: discrete, of pale and very classic colors.

P.S. the translation isn't very good...

Elsa, i think this discussion hasn't sense... i'm will always respect your opinion, and for me isn't very important discuss this! :)

As always critics without sense; and above as always they are not truth. It is always necessary to put to Letizia of the bad one of the film, to sell.

I cannot answer that... i'm not the one who wrote the article...
However, about the hospital is true! They said in their engagement they will have her first child in a public hospital, Leonor was born on Ruber Clinic.
About the clothes... i don't have much to say, the colors i can agree (they could be morw "flashy" but if she don't like...)
About being expensive or not, i don't know how much outfits does she have! :p

Something that you would be interested in knowing, Letizia knew Felipe Varela for the Infanta Elena, he has designed many suits for her. And Felipe Varela always has been a designer known in Spain, has his shop in the best zone of Madrid. In Spain it is done pret-a-porter, and the collections are very limited, with few models that a Princess of Asturias could dress to go correct.

They all have her designers of confidence, the Queen Margarita Nuez, the Infanta Cristina, Jesus del Pozo... and the Infanta Elena has her husband who takes charge of all her wardrobe.

Letizia in two years has had to buy clothes, to cover a constant agenda of acts, repeating often. The Queen repeats clothes non-stop, and dresses suits of 3 or 4 years ago. The Infantas also repeat but have fewer acts. The Infanta Elena has had 11 acts from January, Letizia more than 70. Normally the Infanta Elena dresses jeans every day, and and it is normal that when she wears a suit fixes up much more, is easier it to do two times a month, that every day.

Letizia does not have stylist, there does not have anybody who buys her the clothes and who says to her every day on that she has to put.Neither she can travel from shopping to London or Paris. Letizia cannot go shopping, because the people center in the door of the shop (it has happened more of once). Only she comes to the workshops of Felipe Varela and Adolfo Dominguez to beginning of season, and has to choose that she wants, later they are doing it.

She has her style, simply, elegantly ... it will be able to be bored for some, but she is comfortable and she feels herself... and it is the most important thing.

Also I believe that there are many prejudices, if in place, of Felipe Varela or Adolfo Dominguez ... it was Prada or Chanel, many people would praise it though the design was a disaster.

It is not necessary to be who writes the article to know that it is lie; but who want to believe everything what magazines say, since that creates it. I am not created anything.

Then I do not understand to you, because I had understood that you said the one of the expensive clothes because you read this. Excuse but is that you said it with much security that I thought that you believed it.

Designers Used by the Spanish Royal Family
I just said it because i read it!
And i've been reading this many times... so maybe i said with "security".

But i think we shouldn't discuss this, if she spends very money in clothes.. who cares?!?!
I mean, she have money to buy much more! :P
Besides, if she feels confortable, she should use this kind of clothes, even if we don't like it (or if we do)

Still I am laughing :p

1. Letizia does not spend a lot of money clothes, is evident. The Spanish designers are cheaper than the foreign designers, and Letizia repeats clothes non-stop. The only one that has criticized it is Peñafiel, because does not have another thing that to criticize, and because he has not even. fashionable idea. The specialists in fashion and the magazines, admire her way of taking advantage of the clothes, with different combinations. In comparison with other Queens and Princesses, her expense in clothes must give laugh.:p

2. The Clinic Ruber was the clinic where the Infanta Elena had her two children. Therefore, the Royal Family, it used much before that Victoria Beckham. :p In these cases the decision is of La Zarzuela. A place where the Royal Family is needs from strict measures of safety. To control a public Spanish hospital, and more it is Madrid where the public hospitals are saturated, is very complicated. In addition, of the troublesome ones that would cause the patients and the hospital, for the controls, the safety, and the need to reserve several rooms for bodyguard, gifts and visits of authorities.

3. The topic of Majorca, it has me very boring. It seems that from Majorca, where there are a lot of economic interests in which the Royal Family continues passing their summer there, this type of rumors get up, because they are afraid of that the Princes want to change place. The last invention that I have read is that they search house already not in Asturias, but in Catalonia.
The Prince when he was single was never passing the whole summer in Palm, since the Infanta Elena does not do it. Several days pass out, because in Palm there are great press and many famous people. The Princes can rest or take a calm life (only it is necessary to remember what happened in The Holy Week), and with Leonor, it can be terrible.
Last year they went away one week to Greece, and it nobody commented on it, only they are criticized when they travel to Asturias ... it is incredible but true, last summer only they were 4 days in Asturias, but how it is the natal land of the Princess it is criticized, and it that they leave the luxury of Majorca, by the simplicity of Menchu's House . From the summer Letizia does not visit her natal land, and it that is at less than 1 hour of plane of Madrid and 4 hours in car. Initially they were travelling once every 2 months, but it was because her grandfather was very sick. Since her grandfather died scarcely they have gone a few days. And having in account that they are PRINCES OF ASTURIAS. The natural thing and the logical thing, it is that a person could visit her house, and return to her origins. do not believe that to Maxima is criticized for travelling to Argentina or to Mary for travelling to Australia.

Letizia does not spend a lot of money on clothes. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure that out. Just look at the those boring and uncreative Felipe Varela clothes she wears on her acts plus the fact that she recycles them 3-4 times. Of all the crown princesses she's the one who doesn't spend a lot of money on clothes.

About Cristina, i think she is ok... maybe the outfit is too "different" for the ocasion.
Well, it doesn't take rocket science to figure out Felipe Varela's clothes prince wise is nowhere close to the likes of Chanel, Prada, Valentino, LaCroix and etc, plus most of Letizia's clothes have been recycled 3 or 4 times. It's obvious that she doesn't spend as much on clothes as any other crown princesses in Europe. Cristina was mostly seen wearing the clothes from Jesus Del Pozo, who is more famous than Varela in the fashion world, thus is not cheaper than Varela's, but still much cheaper than the French/Italian coutures.

She doesn't need half a dozen white pants (2 should be sufficient) to be seen once or twice per week. I don't mind seeing her wearing white pants at soccer games, bullfighting or visits to the working-class suburbans of Madrid, Armani or Chanel suits would have been totally out of place. But for a celebration event like the King's saint day, I'd like to see her glam up a little.

I was merely doing an observation since she seems to wear those white pants a lot; and about glaming up I agree with you, in the King's Saint Day women should wear outfits like Elena's, more classically elegant
