Thanks for the pictures. I agree the First Lady looks fab on both occasions. She changed outfits and the President changed his red tie as it looked alike to the one of the King :lol: Queen Sofia looks very elegant but I was wondering if there is a reason that she's all in black.

Letizia's outfit is terrible down from the waist; it's a repeat and I've said it before. It would be so easy to look nice with some elegant wide leg pants instead of this towel-turned-into-a-skirt and black stockings; sorry but she looks second class and underdressed next to the First Lady and Queen Sofia. I do hope she'll do better tonight and won't wear her red gala top again on this occasion, for the fourth time.

Thank you very much for the pics. Queen Sofía always stands out for his serene beauty and natural elegance

biboquinhas 11-26-2007 10:33 AM

Letizia should be wearing a suit, a jacket and a skirt will be perfect for the ocassion, but not this type of clothes and not that skirt with those black leggins, she seams to like them a lot, they indeed look confortable and warm, that's true!

ahh what lovely pictures from the arrival. First lady looks lovely intresting to see her in two different outfits but so did the Queen. King looked like he had some noce talk going on, always nice to see a happy side of the king, I guess usually he has a serioues look on him. Letizia looked nice, nothing boring

Her_Majesty 11-26-2007 11:15 AM

The Queen looked really elegant! The dark blue (or is it black ^^) suits her very well!

I don't really like Letizia's outfit-choice!
I think the black stockings ruin the whole outfit! The grey color makes her look rather pale.. so, I'm not too fond of her look this time. :ermm:

What an awful outfil, so plain and boring.

LadyFinn 11-26-2007 01:51 PM

I have always liked this jacket of Letizia, it´s beautiful. I don´t like the skirt.

I really don't see what is wrong with Letizia's outfit or Sofia's outfit. They look fine to me! This is a day event and the Spanish royals aren't known for that really dressy stuff like the Danes and Dutch. Everyone looked appropriate to me!

I understand we are all entitled to our own opinions but the negative opinions in the Spanish forums has really been putting a damper on my enjoyment of this RF. It's always the same people basically saying the same darn thing each event. The comments are getting old! Really old! :bang::bang::bang: I understand you all can careless but now I feel better for letting that out.

Her_Majesty 11-26-2007 04:18 PM

Well, Aurora , as you said: Everyone is free to express his/her opinion.
I don't think there are that much negative comments about Letizia or Sofía dressing badly. Having a look through the latest events threads I have the feeling most people were quite satisfied with the outfit choices (at least, I was :biggrin:).

I think Letizia should stay away from black stockings. I hate those stockings no matter who wears them! They look horrible on Mette-Marit, on Mary and on Letizia. I just cannot stand them.
Especially when they are combined with a skirt or outfit that's lighter then the stockings.

I don't think someone made a negative comment about the Spanish Royal Family. I only saw some comments by members who didn't like the OUTFITS worn by the Queen and Princess. Do we need to say "Haleluja" and "Amen" to every outfit worn by them? I don't think so. ;)

LadyFinn 11-26-2007 04:18 PM

Photos from the gala tonight. Letizia recycles the green dress from president Putin´s visit, I was thinking she might do it.
