The Princes do not usually go to the acts of welcome, only make a exception in the case of a visit of a King or Queen.

Many thanks Paty for your work of "transcription"!:flowers:

The Princess of Asturias's outfit it's not new but I beleive that she wore it once, for the official shot of the first birthday of Leonor. The jacket is very precious.

She wore tow jackets the red and the white suit.

I have to say that I don´t like specially Letizia´s hair, is out of form. I like more the lastes years.

I agree with you. The jacket is very dull, probably looks better on a 50 something woman. She needs a little styling on her hair, not just wash and dry.

I have seen the images in television. The Queen Sofia repeats the white Valentino that dressed in one of the last gala. The Princess, I believe that she repeats red top but with a new skirt. The Queen takes the tiara of the flowers and the Princess the one that she took in her wedding.

Do you know if there a kind of scale to determine the use of the tiara?

I'm trying to explain me, the Queen can be wear at least six tiaras, two are absolutly regal, the fleur de lys one and these who seems to belong to the Infanta Pilar but that a while the Queen had wore at least twice the last year. Then the Queen can wear tiaras a little less imposing the Cartier Tiara - belonging to the Queen Ena - or the shell tiara - that I'm very found of- And then the two last one wore very often the flowers one - so refined- and the wedding one.

The infantas, for instance, wear only the two last one. It's better to say the Infanta Christina because the Infanta Elena is wearing a family tiara.

Do you think that it's possible that for such or such state viste the choice of the tiara is doing regarding the importance of thr country which is invited?

My question is for all the specialists !:flowers::flowers:

lula 10-22-2007 04:31 PM

The Infanta Elena and the Infanta Cristina use always the same tiaras. The Princess of Asturias alternates between two, which she used in her wedding and that of the flowers. The Queen is the one that more changes of tiara, I believe that she does it depending on the visit, the most important she takes them when the visit is of a Royal Family or of a very important State or with many links with Spain.

As far as i know the Fleur de Lys is worn only on State Visits from reigning Monarchs. I think the same can be said about the big Cartier Diamond and Pearl Tiara as she has worn it only 2 times since the death of the Countess of Barcelona, to whom the tiara belonged before. Last year in Norway and at the State Visit from the King of Saudi Arabia.

This style of dress seems to be a favorite of Letizia's. I'm not really sure if I like it or not. It's not screaming fantastic at me. But it's not bad either. I need to wait for more pics and I would like to be able to see the skirt in better detail. As for the other 2 ladies, I think the Queen always looks nice and so does the wife of the Slovakia's president. I really like the orange-ish color of her dress.

Are we sure we have seen the top part before? It looks different to me! But then again, I am no expert. Also do they really do that, take the top part of one dress and put it with another dress. I mean these are gala dresses not a blouse and skirt pairing. A little confusing to me! Anyways, it looks different to me.

After seeing more pics, I like it. It suits Letizia very well. Even though I think she tends to go for this style quite a bit I suppose I can understand why. Many other dress styles might make her look super super skinny. This dress adds some fullness in the right areas.

COUNTESS 10-22-2007 05:17 PM

They all look lovely, Letizia is beautiful, but far too thin for that style. It is not becoming to her.

Paty 10-22-2007 05:21 PM

Sofia´s outfit is just so elegant, I like the top, I didn´t knew that is was a Velentino dress, I can understan know because is simply wonderful.

Though I can appreciate the photo. It does show a very pretty Letizia. But that photo in and of itself struck me as a bit odd. She has her elbow on the table and she is not looking to entertained by everything. Possibly she is in a deep conversation with someone. I have just always been taught to keep my elbows off the table.:lol: And I don't even attend this nice of an event. So I would think a princess would have been taught something similar at a state visit especially.

adelaide 10-22-2007 05:23 PM

It's so glad thePrincess of Asturias is wearing jewelesd of wich I'm very found of: the rubis and diamond earrings. I don't know the necklace in rubis and diamond too, very pretty good. I like very much the way to use jewelry by Letizia, in fact the way to wear a little more jeweles than at the begining.

For her gown, as usual since she is married very classical and tasty but not so spetacular than those she wore for the wedding of the Crown Prince of Denmark.

Interesting! I think the opposite. I think the skirt part adds some fullness that Letizia does not naturally have. If I think back to her dress choices with the exception of one or two most have had some fullness somewhere to help her out.

BeautyLeonor 10-22-2007 05:28 PM

Letizia looks good! I like so much her top, but i'm not sure about the skirt, I like Sofia's outfit, is so elegant..

The red top is exactly the same used twice wore with two different dresses in 2004. As usually the Princes of Asturias's make up estupendous, even if for this gala dinner Letizia seems a little bit tired!

Urraquita 10-22-2007 05:41 PM

It seems Letizia has a new necklace. I like it, but I don't like how she wears those bracelets for a gala dinner.

About the dress... well it is Letizia after all!

I do like her make-up.

Marengo 10-22-2007 05:42 PM

well all three ladies look lovely IMHO, but what impressed me most is the necklace of Letizia, is it new? I don´t think I ever saw it before. The earrings are the same as she wore in Copenhagen, from the late Queen Ena?

crisiñaki 10-22-2007 05:42 PM

she has used the same top twice before, once with a wonderbra and another one without it:

the first one was in the visit of the President of Peru, the second one I don't remember, another State Visit:smile:

This time: nice top, earrings and the necklace is wow!, but those bracelets are a big no no
the skirt: the others she wore before suit better the top than this one, which looks a bit too dull for such a vibrant top, much better something more colourful

donnaK 10-22-2007 05:58 PM

I don't mind the style of the skirt, but patterns and color are ugly and mismatched with the top. She hadn't been to a gala for so long, I'm disappointed that she didn't buy a new one-piece dress this time ?
I have never liked this Valentino gown of the Queen, one of the worst of her Valentino collections.

Oh, I agree with you, the skirt adds the fullness that she needs, but the top accentutates her frailness, for lack of a better word. She is much too thin for so much open on top.

crisiñaki 10-22-2007 06:08 PM

the skirt is furniture-fabric-like:cool: ugly and too dull

I'm likely the only one that sees all three to be slightly different. But of these two above. The shoulder straps look different. And I doubt that it is just that she is simply wearing them up over her shoulder and then down on her arms. Now for tonight's dress, if you look at any close-ups of this bodice it seems the material is different, I think I noticed some slight gathering. There is something more going on then there was with the other two bodices. But that is just my opinion. And I could only pick up on it from ANP pics.

Hmmm ... Letizia is wearing a tiara so it must be a gala dinner, correct? I am very disappointed with her attitude. Recycled top (not just once) together with some boring or even cheap looking skirt ... doesn't Felipe's budget allow a proper gala dress for his wife? It looks like she or whoever did an unloving mix-and-match job without any deeper reflection. Make up is nice and her hair is properly done but I bet if there was no tiara Letizia had shown up with her usual wash and go hair.

As much as she loves her daughters, she could have left the bracelets at home for this evening only as there is a total mismatch with the rest of the "heavy" jewellery.

The first gala dinner after 1 1/2 years ... no idea why Letizia missed another chance to sparkle. No effort, just dull and uninspired.

Letizia has worn the top twice before:

AND http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...9&d=1124224255

:flowers: A close up of the skirt would be nice. So far it looks like a rug but I'd be thrilled if there are any pics that prove otherwise ;)

adelaide 10-22-2007 07:02 PM

Dear Paty, if you are here Weirimage please: upon 26 pics about the gala dinner 25 of the Princess of Asturias whom some look absolutly beautifull, but as you know the size of the shots are too little to see the details!!!!

aryo 10-22-2007 07:04 PM

obviously princess has decided to spend most of her money on jewellery and hardly on her clothes unless it is a very very very important event for her.

I think that the jewellery wore by the Princess of Asturias this night belong to the Royal Familly of Spain. The earrings were belonging to the Countess of Barcelone and we can suppose that the necklace too, doing a whole of Rubies and diamonds set estupendous because discret!

Aurora810 10-22-2007 07:24 PM

Why does everyone think that she is taking one top and putting it with another skirt? That just does not make sense to me. Possibly I am the strange one. But this is a royal family. Do you really think they are that hard up that they make the wife of their crown prince and likely one of the most looked at women in Spain recycle the bodice of a dress and stick it with a different skirt now 3 different times. Sorry, but I am not convinced at all. This would have to be the cheapest royal family in the world if that were the case. She has not even been a princess that terribly long(only 3 and a half years) and some really believe that it is likely she has recycled stuff that often. I'm sorry but I see some differences in all three.

That's what I saw, the same top in 3 occasions. Maybe the light made it look a little different, but it was the same top IMO. Spain doesn't have a royal finance sytem as other countries, which heavily favors the crown princely couple. It's really up to the King to distribute the money. We have no idea how much money Letizia gets for her clothes. I never understand why she didn't ask Caprile to make her a few more gowns and cocktail dresses (I love the cocktail dress she wore at the wedding of Beltran and Laura). Perhaps she couldn't afford Caprile's clothes most of the time, had to wear Varela's cheap clothes.

All three ladies are gorgeous!

stellad 10-22-2007 08:13 PM

The ladies looked elegant and I think Letizia is allowed to be a bit tired seeing she had so many engagements these last view days.

Maybe she along with Zarzuela didn't think it was a big deal since this state visit is not as high profile as the ones of Russian, Chinese or Portugese President (I know Letizia had missed the last two). No matter what, this skirt is plainly ugly, she is better off wearing one of her old skirts.
I like her hair though. Hopefully she will have a nice hairdo at the PoA awards this Friday.

First the dress is not ugly only because it's not spectacular. Then, the whole of the complete gown plus the rubies and diamonds set - earrings, necklace and bracelet- is matching with discretion.

No for the curtain because in fact it's a refined silk satin with geometric design. If all the skirt/dress/gown with geometric design will be curtain it would be many curtain in this field.

But I agree it's not so spectacular that I would to see it egoïstiquely!

If you are watching to the color of the sashe for the Princes you can understand it's a low profile state visit because they don't wear one of the Chekoslovaquia as the Kings.

crisiñaki 10-22-2007 11:24 PM

How I miss the Infantas in gala dinners, they and their husbands give some style and old-fashioned elegance to these acts

the earrings and necklace are a match and are simply divine, very beautiful, but she screws the effect with the golden bracelets, which do not suit the rest of the ensemble at all

the top is ok to me, but the skirt is awful, it's just a matter of taste I think ;)

I don't care if this was a low-key state dinner, she should have worn something more fitting to her role, most of what she owns looks cheap, Varela clothing isn't really that good and this matched set (even if the top isn't Varela, the skirt as it is so bad looks to be Varela) doesn't really...well...match :rolleyes:

I find Letizia's dress very nice. The two-piece with the patterned skirt is very elegant. Red is a very good color on her and the darker skirt brings out the elegant top.

Woman on the left (Telma) - she is not a royal so she may be forgiven that she does not demonstrate appropriate table manners although in this case she is doing much better as her sister as she seems to be interacting with other people on the table.

Woman on the right (Cristina) - it's a caption made in a split of a second. As Telma, she seems to be in the middle of a conversation and doing a gesture, probably pointing at something.

ImageShack - Hosting :: is15681350ei2.png

Very different to Letizia's gesture, who is neither in a conversation nor interacting etc. She is just plain bored, resting her chin on her fist with elbow on the table as if she was asking herself when this annoying dinner would finally be over and she could go to bed. Very very unprofessional to allow a pic like that to be taken. It's a gesture of a defiant five-year-old but not of a CP at a gala dinner.

I won't compare Letizia to Cristina or Elena because there is no point and it's not fair but looking back at some appearances not only from recent weeks there is no question who was born into royalty and who wasn't.

Where has all her energy and drive gone? Letizia used to be a perfectionist, what has become of her. Too much going on with two daughters and royal duties and not enough staff to support her? Too bad as she could do so much better.

crisiñaki 10-23-2007 03:36 AM

I think she's allowed to be bored, but she's not allowed to show it, it's all a matter of image:rolleyes:

Excellent post DoM, as usual, you nail it on the head ;)

I like the ladies outfits, especially the jacket of princess Letizia, it´s very beautiful, so are her shoes.

Queen Sofia looks good and I like Letizia's outfit too. Very classy, nice shoes. Top underneath could be more suitable (seems to be the same one from her solo event) and sadly, almost as usual, all is ruined by the terrible hair.

I don't think it was just a split of a second that both Telma and Cristina had their elbows on the table. Letizia was probably listening to the speech (long speeches from both sides). She could be concentrating herself, although I do wish she didn't put her elbow on the table.
Actually this was a very unflattering of Cristina, it seemed she had her middle finger pointing something due to the camera angle, not royal at all.

To be honest, unless they had tiaras on the head, I doubt people could tell who was royal or not, let alone who was born into royalty ;). Cristina or Elena also had their bad hair days, they usually looked better at night events, so did Letizia.

She needs a hair stylist. She looked lovely at the gala dinner (IPA has the best pictures) when her hair was done despite the ugly skirt.

Considering that the last time she wore a high-profile foreign designer she was vilified in the press, online etc. is it any surprise she sticks to Varela?!

It's such hypocricy as well, the rest of the family wears whoever they like with little or no consequence.

While the double standards exist Letizia will continue to wear Vaerla.
