The dress in combination with the hair makes it look as if HM is wearing a bath robe. Not the best choice for this event, it all looks rather plain.

What a big let down on Letizia's behalf ,its meant to be the highlight of the New Year and she's totally missed the mark.

I think you are right. This was certainly an occassion to have a formal, tight bun, IMO.

That said, in the context of Letizia's difficult sartorial relationship with the said event, she has not done too badly!

it is true that this is not letizia's event from a sartorial perspective - she usually chooses a boring/dull outfit. i guess she struggles with gala dresses for the daytime, as this event seems to be her only one requiring gala/long dress when it is not the evening.

Indeed looks plain, and her hair looks sloppy.

I differ from most in thinking this extremely chic - although long bejewelled 'dangly' earrings would have made it 'perfection'..

I agree that it looks like a bath robe - especially when it opens so much when she walks:

And this hairdo didn't help at all, a total mess.

Perhaps she is getting inspiration from Meghan on how to do her hair up!

yes to the sloppy hair also and yes to the opening of her skirt, which is indeed a bit much for this event specially. i also think the dress just doesn't fit right.

I don't mind the hair as much if the outfit was nicer ,that button looks like its holding it all together ,which is rather worrying given the event.

Letizia has never been one for regal imagination and seems to wear her clothes exactly as seen on a model or mannequin and forgets they will be worn by a queen.

A few modifications and a brooch or her diamond bangles and that blue dressing gown could have looked wonderful.

The color looks good on her but I don't like it waist down. Her hair is just okay for me. A brooch will bring out the best of this outfit.

This seems to be another formal day Court Dress. An occasion that warrants that amount of formality is no served by a thigh high split. Whatever was she thinking?

Letizia often lacks common sense ,despite being a working royal for over 15 years she can still amaze me at her lack of finesse.

Since when has common sense depended on what a person decides to wear?

Given Letizia has a stylist and it was a very formal Event there would have been some level of though put into the chosen outfit for the queen?

I like the blue gown she is showing leg to me no big deal she is covered up enough so it is classy. I just don't like the hair.

The outfit is nice, the hair is acceptable but the opening in the skirt is unacceptable, not only for a queen but also for any mother of almost 47 years old. She is not in the red carpet she is in a sobre, I would say business event.
After 15 years of marriage and almost 6 years being a queen, this is really wrong. But it shows also a lack of professionalism of her dressing team, stylist and protocol responsibles. They should know that skirt will open while working.
