Letizia looked great and judging by the other guests were neither under- or over-dressed for the dinner.

Sometimes I don't like the style of Leonor and Sofia's clothes, or the colour, or I don't think something flatters one or the other, but I don't think I've ever seen them wear something outright inappropriate. And it's certainly possible to dress children inappropriately, especially girls. So on some level Letizia must understand the concept of appropriate dress, and consider it important enough to make sure her daughters adhere to it. I don't understand why she doesn't see that the same rules that apply to her daughters should apply to her.

Because I don't think Letizia wears something like this thinking it's a good fit for the occasion. I think she knows it's way off base and doesn't care.

It was a scaled-down dinner in line with pandemic times. Having said that, Letizia has a very large wardrobe at her disposal, including plenty of coktail dresses. She has no shortage of jewelry either. Even if haute couture was not required for that event, she could have made a different wardrobe choice.

She could have worn a skirt or cocktail dress the entire look was less than polished and she is the queen of Spain after all on a State visit not a night out at the theatre.

I´m really disappointed about Letizia's dinner look! I think its a nice look but definitely not for a dinner during a state visit. Letizia whole style always was less royal and more casual compared to other Princesses and Queens. But I think in her first 3 years as Queen she had a better balance between her casual modern and the classic royal style.


Her dinner look was very low key in every way! Yes we still have Corona but she really should wear bigger earrings or at least they should be visible IMO.

I agree with the critics of the dinner outfit; the men are in suits; so, it wasn't a diamonds-galore event. But, Queen Letizia's shoulders look huge in that getup. Simply, the outfit is unflattering.

Absolutely non suitable for a Queen, in any occasion, and absolutely nor flattering for Letizia herself.
I don't care for the strapless if it was in a dress. But this outfit is not made for her body, neither for any occasion, except maybe for a restaurant night out in Marbella during summer holidays.
A total miss.

Letizia likes provocation, maybe she thought it would be a good outfit to impress the Archbishop.

Not my cup of tea, but I do give her credit for wearing what she wants and apparently her husband, the King and quite knowledgeable about the press and critics, is perfectly OK with the look or it would not have happened. One never knows what goes on behind closed doors. Quite interesting. JMO

I agree with everyone. Totally inappropriate for the occasion.

I absolutely would not have picked it for this occasion, but I personally don't think Letizia was being disrespectful. She wasn't wearing jeans or shorts (items that I would qualify as disrespectful).

This is one of a few outfits that I really wish we could know Letizia's thought process because maybe she had a reason that I can't figure out. Maybe she doesn't I just don't know.

I would venture to say Her Majesty's thought process was something like "I need to be toned-down because everyone else is dressing simply and Felipe is wearing an ordinary suit, but I need to be a little bit glamorous and distinctive because I'm the visiting Queen". It's a tricky line to walk, and I imagine quite a bit of thought went into it.

I'm not saying that Letizia got it exactly right, but saying it's a disgrace, or some kind of deliberate insult or provocation, seems unfair.

Queen Letizia attended the presentation of the new corporate strategy and brand of the Fair Institution of Madrid (IFEMA) this evening and wore the same outfit for an audience today:

Other than the belt, Letizia looked really nice and a good black and white combination.
