Designers Used by the Spanish Royal Family
Why Letizia wears spanish designers like Infanta Cristina and Elena choose Lacroix and Chanel?
I think that they just wear clothes of the designers that they like because they are not forced to wear clothes of Spanish designers.
(Well, they are not forced to wear them, but for example, in her first public appearance, Letizia was very criticized because she wore an Armani's suit, so ...)
Anyhow the only Spanish princess who dresses clothes of foreign designers is Infanta Elena, because Letizia often wears designs of Lorenzo Caprile or Felipe Varela and Infanta Cristina usually wears Jesus del Pozo, her favorite designer.
Btw, does someone know who was the designer of the clothes that Cristina wore to the wedding of her cousin Fernando?
(Sorry for my awful English)
Could you explain me why Letizia wears the same clothes and the 2 Infantas and the queen use new clothes each without using again?
I've no idea about that...
But think that The Queen and the Infantas have wore the same clothes in several public appearances a lot of times, but we usually don't realize that. Now Letizia is being very analyzed, and for that reason in her circumstance
it's more evident when she wears some clothes twice or more than twice.
The Queen, although she performs as many royal duties as Letizia does, has a much more extensive wardrobe than Letizia, culled from years and years ago. (The Queen has some suits that she wore in the early '90s that she still wears today, but they're so timeless they hardly seem out of date.) In time we'll see Letizia's repetition of her clothing less obvious because she'll have more to her wardrobe.
she wore amarni how cool has anyone seen her in versace
It's obvious that Letizia needs to repeat her clothes a lot more often than the Infantas, because she's attending an average of 1-2 official acts per day... so I would say her not repeating outfits, that would be strange... and highly criticised, don't you think? Can you imagine what Spaniards would say of such ostentatious signs?...
Anyway, Queen Sofia also repeats her wardrobe a lot and, just like her daughter-in-law, she is famous for recycling and matching clothes along the years. So, I think Letizia has a great role model indoors...
The Queen and the Infanta Elena if they dress of foreign designers, but in the last times the Infanta Cristina dresses more of Spanish designers normally Jesus del Pozo, and also at some time Caprile or Palacio.
As for why the Princess of Asturias dresses only of Spanish designers it is simple, wants to prevent her wardrobe from being a motive of commentary and critique, since it happened with Armani's suit the day of the commitment. Probably with the passage of time, when there is no so many attention centred on her,she will have more freedom in this sense.
Letizia is judged and the critique, is the wife of the Prince, and the Infantas are there for birth; there the difference is. Letizia has to gain her place, and the society and the press Spanish are not precisely easy. In spite of it, the Infanta Elena has not escaped to this type of critiques, especially for choosing suits of foreign designers (especially Lacroix), for events of many relevancy as the weddings.
During the dinner in honour of the President of Peru The Queen wore a modified dress from Valentino Couture. In a report about Valentino in a magazine you could also see that he had a picture of the Queen wearing this dress on the wall in one of his work rooms together with other famous people wearing his dresses.

Reina Doña Sofía will shine the day of the wedding of Prince de Asturias with Doña Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano a long suit, that already is finished, and classic mantilla Spanish, like godmother of the ceremony, whereas the rest of guests goes of short, according to confirmed its seamstress yesterday, Daisy Nut. "the Queen has the most important paper of this ceremony because she will take to the Prince to the altar like godmother of the wedding, reason why has decided on a very elegant long dress, that will shine with much style and majesty, since it knows to walk very well, something far from easy when it knows that there are so many pending eyes of her", it explained Daisy Nut.
The seamstress of Reina has added that "his Majesty knew that this real wedding was magno event and, at the time of the election, showed preference for a suit not as free as for any other ceremony, with which he will be very overwhelming". He will take purse and shoes to game and at the moment it is not predicted that he takes gloves, added.
Daisy Nut, seamstress of Doña Sofia almost twenty years ago, assured that, from always, chemistry has worked between both, since to Reina "it likes a quite sober style of clothes and nothing pomposo", like the one of its designs.
The seamstress confessed that she intuited that could be the designer of this suit, since in its day it designed the dress of Reina for the wedding of Infant Cristina or for the celebration in the Arsenal of Seville, about the wedding of Infant Elena, "although also I thought that the chosen one could be a designer of Madrid, but sent my sketches to the Zarzuela and were accepted".
"the Queen is a woman with very many personality, is necessary to see it close by realizing really it, has an extraordinary glance, a great inner force and make we have left very well to all the Spaniards", has emphasized Daisy Nut.
Sombreos and touched will set the standard
On the advice for the guests to this connection, the seamstress has noticed that it will be "a sober" wedding, because she is celebrated in the morning and, therefore, "is not for taking embroiders, but to emphasize the hairdos and the hats, that are what somehow it will set the standard and to which we are not so customary the Spanish women".

Asked on if it had noticed nervous to Reina by the imminent wedding of his son, it commented that "Reina always is Queen, I do not know how it will be in his interior, because one always behaves as a normal person and it has the sufficient preparation to know how to be in all the circumstances".
On his relation with Manuel Pertegaz, natural both of the province of Teruel, it confessed that it had not maintained any contact on the different orders for the wedding and described to modisto like "the teacher of the high Spanish seam, next to Balenciaga".
Styles of Leticia and the infants
Daisy Nut never raised that she would be the designated person to make the suit of Doña Letizia Ortiz, of which has said that she is "a very handsome woman, attractive, with paper very difficult, because it must go well dressed based on a type life that takes with himself many daily changes and to adapt to them, something that surely who will obtain, because he is very intelligent; personally, to me I like more with the loose hair ".
On the styles of the Infants, Daisy Nut has emphasized that each one of them adapts to the place of residence and its type of life. "Doña Elena has her residence in Madrid, where people get dressed more and are more social acts, whereas the life of Doña Cristina in Barcelona is simpler and his atuendo he is more informal and Mediterranean", has affirmed.
Finally, Daisy Nut has confessed that is invited to the real wedding, to which it will go, although still does not know in what its clothes will consist, by that of which "in blacksmith house, wood knife".
