Why only the Queen? If this is not the place to dress classic/boring I'd love to see a risky outfit of the King, too

The black leather dress is gorgeous...but not for a queen. Sometimes Letizia seems to forget that she is the queen of Spain

She usually takes a risk at this fair - and this dress is no exception. The dress isn't to my7 dress - but her makeup and hair are on point and I would like to see this hairstyle again

Once again Letizia has allowed her general boredom to be reflected in a totally inappropriate ensemble on an important occasion. I thought she had resigned herself to toeing the line when she gave up wearing Capri pants and Espadrills to formal military parades where her husband was taking the salute. But it seems not.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Letizia looked very polished 2 years ago when they did the ARCO during the Argentine State Visit.

I think Felipe feels uncomfortable in "casual / unconventional clothes" I can not imagine that he is sitting at home and wearing a pair of sweatpants

Letizia looks nearly "classic" behind this women

i think it was in 2014 that she started to risk something(the coat with stones) compared to today or her leather trousers 2016 that was still classic. I just hope we will see this thing never again, unfortunatley she repeats her worst pieces

I'm in the minority in that I like the leather dress. Except for the messy and too girlish hairstyle I like the entire look.

I agree 100%. Felipe could certainly take a risk once-in-awhile. Especially there. Actually I like this different look on Letizia for a change. Makes her more human rather than "on display".

Well, I thought it was a very nice and modern look. Love the leather dress and her hair. BUT!!! It was not that appropriate for a State Visit...The problem with Letizia is that she wants to dress youthful all the time, most clothes look good on her body type, but that doesn't erase her age and status. Sometimes its too girly and over the top, sometimes its hideous and uncomfortable. It wouldn't surprise me if she wore this dress when she turns 60 years old. She wants the fountain of youth, that's for sure...

See, I actually like this Varela dress and think that it would have been appropriate for a state visit and the opening of ARCO. It's 'funky' but not too 'funky.'

I have no problem with the leather dress, except that she was hosting a state visit. It's just me: had she been on her own today and wearing it, I'd have LOVED it. But she's on a state visit, so I expected something a bit more formal. I do hope to see the leather dress again, though.

I also like the FV dress she wore in 2015! and I agree i would be happy she had worn it today Im sure we will see the leather dress at some point(maybe an audience) I agree, I think her main mistake was, wearing it during a state visit!

The black leather Dominatrix outfit is by & Other stories, I think it's related to H&M

Queen Letizia attended an event marking the World Rare Diseases Day in Madrid today, March 5, wearing a Hugo Boss dress:

A really nice shape even if a little bland looking overall.

Yes a little bland but still a nice dress and anything is better than leather at official events.

Her leather outfits (excluding bags and shoes) always look like they are made of vinyl. As bad as the black dress is, the beige shoes are a total miss.

The dress from the Rare Diseases event is ok in theory but I don't like the odd mismatch of the plaid from the bodice to the skirt. It just looks off to me.

This is a nice look from Letizia and she looks very pretty. Great to see that her hair looks freshly done too.
