Not liking this look. Too circus-looking. She doesn't even look royal. A miss for me.

This is a good description of her look today.

I don't love the print on this, and the belt is way too wide and heavy looking for such a soft fabric, but I appreciate that Letizia is trying something out of her usual go-to styles. The actual cut of the dress is gorgeous on her, it's the print that is overwhelming.

I don't like this dress. It is too busy, too floral, too everything. I can't think of a single floral dress Letizia has worn that I actually liked. Floral prints aren't her style. I don't have as much trouble with the belt as some do but I do think it would look better if it was narrower and fabric instead of leather. What really gets me is that juvenile looking headband. While I haven't cared for any of the hats I have seen on others, they are at least appropriate for the occasion. This is not appropriate and look terrible on her. Lately she has had more misses then wins with her wardrobe choices.

I love the dress, it is a nod to the Japanese floral prints. The only thing I did not like were the earrings. Everything perfect and different from everyone else.

Looks like wallpaper or upholstery. Shiny mess.

Way too busy especially among the other understated ladies.

Both of the dresses featured chrysanthemums- a nod to the Japanese imperial house. However it was all just too much a bit of overkill.
There is a way to flatter the host in fashion without over doing it.
Besides that she did look elegant and well put together with very nice jewels.

Though this outfit is fine for another event its not State Visit arrival and Letizia can be quite lazy on the effort front at times ,the jacket worn as a cape looks really unprofessional.

She looks good in the blue Carolina Herrera dress. It seems a bit informal for an official arrival ceremony but looking at the suit worn by the First Lady it appears to work. As florals go, this one is much better than most of the ones she's worn. The color gives it more of an autumn feel.

Both of these looks are great and IMO improvements from some of the evening wear she has been sporting.

I like the white HB dress because it seems to be her style. I think the jacket looks like the CH she wore for departure and maybe she felt cold and nothing else was suitable wearing over the dress..

Well, once again Letizia didn't understand the extremely formal dress code of "Court Dress" or chose to totally ignore it. Her ensemble for the enthronement was a disaster with her garish floral gown with its low cut back to her headband and loose hair. I don't understand it, how could she get it so wrong?

As for the banquet, I liked her tip to the Chrysanthemum Throne but unfortunately, the dress was made to wear strapless and the top fill-in was just horrible. It was ill-fitting and looked like a home-made last-minute addition, whereas the rest of the dress looked really regal. Alas, the top totally cancelled out the bottom.

I love her arrival outfit today.

Not a fan of the dress. But the jewels are great.
