Seems like such a casual dress for this event.

Its a nice dress but it needs something to jazz it up belt,bangle ,bracelet Letizia so often lacks imagination and wears the outfit exactly as if it were on a mannequin in a dept store.

I think Letizia looks very beautiful and elegant. Love the colour of her shoes, too.

Now that lovely dress Letizia wore on Feb 23 wonderful and I must admit that not much in the line of jewelry should be worn with it or one could look like a "hobby-Horse" at a fair. I would have enjoyed long larger earrings or dark colored one strand choker, but absolutely nothing else. She looks really nice.

Cool

I dont like this dress even after its fourth outing. I really miss her lighter hairs, the black/dark hairs do not suit her imo. Her previously worn pearl earrings were a better choice

A lovely dress and hairstyle just wish she'd worn nicer earrings for the occasion.

The grey dress was a bit plain and boring. The length doesn't help. Don't think even jewelry would have helped. Not her usual sleek professional look.

I love this second look. A great dress, happy to see again. And love her hair.

Its a nice gown but i find it still a pity that they don't wear long black gowns with mantillas and Order for the flag ceremonies anymore. It looked so regal.

i agree - it was just about the only ocasion we had to see the spanish royals in mantillas. sofia used to go in long dress and matilla, and so did letizia when she joined the SRF, but she stopped doing so after she became queen. who knows, perhaps it is her way of modernising the court but it is a real shame that an element so associated with spanish tradition no longer has its place in the court. she also didn't wear a white one when visiting the pope so i guess she has done without for ever.

The use of the long black dress was a very antiquated introduction of Sofia (maybe being a foreigner and not having been born a Catholic, she thought that highlighted her Spanishness), she herself in Franco's time came to a delivery of flag in a long red dress, and decades before the own Queen Victoria Eugenia had dispensed with the use of the mantilla in these acts.

The mantilla is only used in Easter and weddings, and is used more in Andalucia but very little in the rest of Spain. So it's normal for it to be something that Queen Letizia does not identify with, because it is something that most Spanish people of her generation do not identify with.

As for visits to the Vatican, they have always differentiated between state visits, where queens do not cover their heads, and religious visits where they do.

In recent years with the changes of Francisco the Vatican protocol no longer requires it in religious ceremonies.

She has so many skirt suits and dresses, appropriate for a state visit, who told her she looks regal in snake dress? The only thing i like is her coat, the other things a big mess

Why did she pick this for a Welcoming Ceremony at a State Visit,honestly Letizia sometimes amazes me at her outfit choices for high profile events.

the outfit looks like thrown together at last minute, nothing works together. the dress is far too casual and too long for the coat.

yes you are right. This dress might be ok for the Arco visit tomorrow, but for sure NOT for an state visit/ welcome ceremony. I think generally there is nothing bad about a "cheap" dress for official events, as long it looks appropiate and this one looks just horrible far away from regal look!! the whole look makes it even worse. I choose an old fashion skirt suit over this mess! I think she had just two "perfect looks" for incoming state visit(Colombia&Argentine)
