I know tha many posters didn't like this dress the first tiem round,especially because of its back, which looked a bit cheap, but I actually find this dress not bad.

eya 11-17-2016 09:11 AM

Personally i like this dress very much and Queen is very elegant with that!

I like this dress. Classy and elegant. It fits perfectly. Beautiful shade of blue. There are nice details on the dress that make it interesting.

very blah dress in my opinion and far from memorable.

I agree. Not bad but just ok.

Never been a fan of this dress but she looks good in it.

This is the third time she's worn it and it's growing on me. I wish she'd find different shoes to wear with it though.

For such an event, the State Opening of the new legislature of the Cortes, with all the ceremonial around, the Queen is underdressed in my humble and personal opinion. She is not an assistant or a clerk, she is the Queen of glorious Spain. Show it!

Elly C 11-17-2016 01:15 PM

She still looks very classy and beautifully turned out. I love the colour.

She looks about as dressed up as the King imo.

Unlike his spouse, the King has extremely limited options, of course. With her eternal predictable and dull skin-tight dresses of an eternal similar model the Queen of one of the grandest monarchies in the world manages to fade away in a crowd and to be outshadowed by any First Lady. This would never happen to a Mary, to a Victoria or to a Máxima. Come on Letizia... do not look like a rabbit caught in headlights, show some theatre, you are La Reina de España, for God's sake. Wear a pearl collier. Spice it up with a brooch. Use some ladylike accessoires. Do we need to spell it out for her?

An Ard Ri 11-17-2016 01:52 PM

Its ok but it look the exact same as last time,no accessories like a brooch or bracelet ,she has little imagination on that front.

Countessmeout 11-17-2016 01:53 PM

No you don't. Because not all events call for hats, pearls and gloves. Maxima is the closest to wearing it all the time. The other Ladies you mentioned don't dress any different than Letizia. I have rarely seen any of them in a proper hat or full pearls for a day event. :ermm:

The queen looks lovely. The dress has great detail. Her hair is beautiful. Though I love hats, the Spanish ladies don't tend to wear them, even Sofia. :flowers:

you cannot compare them to each other. Each monarchy has their own way of doing things. Spain has to operate a certain way. Letizia doesn't do brooches. We already know that. It's the way she's always been. She likes her "uniform'. Fine if you find it boring, but she's been like this for 12 years. She's not changing any time soon.

The green dress is beautiful.

I dont see anything wrong with Letitia's outfit or that she is underdressed. This is an appropriate outfit for such an event. If she had worn a hat, then it would be a look that any other royal would wear but she doesn't and we should respect that. As for the jewels, yes I agree she should've worn a brooch and a bracelet.

A very good look imo. The simple black top is well-balanced with the skirt!
