Nice casual outfit, lovely colour. I love her belt.

really like her look today

I like this outfit. The belt is really pretty, and I like the purple colors in her skirt and sweater.

Her_Majesty 11-28-2008 04:29 PM

The outfit is indeed very lovely, but the colour of her clunky shoes doesn't match the colour of the outfit at all.. these are two completely different shades of purple. ... the shoes are blue-ish purple.
That's the only deficiency;).

:lol: I've just stopped looking at her full image. I have presumed that the clunky shoes are most likely to make an appearance, and so I never look at the full picture. Her outfits have been so nice, but the shoes ruin them.

I really admire this Lady :wub:

That outfit looked really different!12 points!!

udyusa 11-28-2008 06:35 PM

So true, sgl, and really kind of pathetic in a way. She is such a pretty and feminine (albeit thin/tiny) person. :smile: She may not have a 'stylist' per se, but she has eyes And mirrors! She is obviously very comfortable with her image and her choices of shoes and Filipe must agree. Who are we to disagree? Can't help it, I just do!! :lol:

i fail to see the point of the coincidence... :ermm:

sgl 11-30-2008 12:24 PM

They are similar in that both skirts are made of a tweed material, and they were worn with a belted top. This is where the similarities end, IMO. I like this year's outfit more than last year's. I prefer the cut of this year's skirt, and the colors are much prettier. Overall, I think that this is a softer look.

Camarina 11-30-2008 01:09 PM

The outfits are very simliar but I like more the outfit of this year, especially the combination of colors.
I like the purple shoes and although it is not the same tonality as the rest of the outfit, I like the result, it's very trend mixture of tonalities and contrasts.
I also have notice that Letizia was thinner last year than this year. She is really beautiful with extra kilos now.

I completel agree sgl, I didnt like the earlier outfit at all. This one flatters letizia far more. :smile:

iakynthi 11-30-2008 05:53 PM

Letizia was thinnier last year? :eek: I thought she couldn't be thinnier than she already is.

udyusa 11-30-2008 06:06 PM

I have to agree with you there, iakynthi! Heavens, she hasn't gained an ounce, imo, since during her last pregnancy! :nonono:

iakynthi 11-30-2008 06:18 PM

Tell them,Udy!!If we let them,what will they tell us after that?That now that she got "fat" she'll start a diet and loose all this excessive weight she gained?:whistling::whistling: Just kidding :biggrin:

ikram 11-30-2008 06:45 PM

i think that with her "old" noise she seems thinner ....and less with the "new" noise wich make her face more harmonious

udyusa 11-30-2008 07:13 PM

Why do you say you are kidding, iakynthi, when it is obvious that she will not gain any weight? She just has metabolism that burns up what she eats and allows her to remain thin. OR... she is not even trying to gain weight for fear she Will gain weight! A conundrum for sure!!

May I just ask what in the world Letizia's weight has to do with her 'nose'??

GlitteringTiaras 11-30-2008 07:30 PM

Let's move on from the whole nose and weight diatribe shall we? Thank you.

ashelen 12-01-2008 12:41 PM

I really don't like hr shoes style, always with platform to make her taller, i don't think it looks right, obviusly she has a complex of short person, i don't know why she does it, most of her soes , for me are ugly! that's my taste of course

sgl 12-01-2008 12:52 PM

The coat is lovely! I laughed when I saw the close-up of the shoes, though. They make a return appearance! :lol::rofl:

PrincessofEurope 12-01-2008 05:48 PM

i dont mind those purple platform shoes as they are much better than some of her other pairs

udyusa 12-01-2008 06:01 PM

May I politely ask in what way, PoE? With the exception of no peeptoes they look the same to me as all of her others!! :whistling: I have to admit however, that they would be a very pretty shoe if she would just have those platforms removed!! :bang:

iakynthi 12-01-2008 06:07 PM

Udy,she might like platforms because they can easily cover her enormous fat feet ;) :lol: :rofl:

udyusa 12-01-2008 06:20 PM

Dear iakythi. There is Nothing on her entire body that could be classified as fat or enormous. :nonono: She is what she is and that is.... very tiny and very lovely. We will just have to accept the fact that she must love her shoes and leave it at that. Or else we will be deleted. :biggrin::biggrin:

magnik 12-01-2008 06:45 PM

After all those words about her shoes I must say that I admire her that she still wear them and can walk with/on them.:biggrin:

iakynthi 12-01-2008 07:02 PM

Strenghthen or break them...lol
Dear Magnik,I believe this happens because she's not a member of the royal forum.I think she should register immediately...you know why!

udyusa 12-01-2008 07:19 PM

I don't mean to be negative, but in all seriousness, I don't envy her as she gets older. I am afraid that she may just suffer serious foot/ankle pain. I truly hope not...

Camarina 12-01-2008 07:26 PM

Letizia is very elegant with the black coat, she looks beautiful!. iakynthi If Letizia enter into Royal forum (apart from seeing your words devoid of grace), she would continues wearing platform shoes, and I encourage her to continue wear them!They are totally comfortable and are trend (I sometimes get the feeling that people do not look at fashion magazines or follows the trends.....:rolleyes:)

udyusa,if Letizia wear high-heeled shoes without platform( like sometime ago), she will suffer very serious foot pain.I can assure you that platform shoes are more comfortable.
She could opts for a lower heel but next to a man soooooo tall like prince Felipe i´m sure is very uncomfortable IMO.(I know that feeling....:rolleyes:)

donnaK 12-01-2008 07:46 PM

The platforms makes the heels less steep, thus more comfortable. Ex. the dinner for the Jordanian royals, Letizia's platform shoes looked a lot more comfortable than Rania's normal high heels. However I don't like the double platforms she has been wearing lately for evening events, that's too much for me.
The platform shoes are in fashion right now. The Spanish designers proabably gave her a good discount on those shoes.

Mandy 12-01-2008 08:05 PM

Please read
 
Enough jokes about Letizia's platform shoes

They are not strippers shoes nor clodhoppers. By all means share your opinions on whether or not Letizia's shoes are a good match with her outfits. However, to constantly disrupt the discussion with repetitious comments about Letizia's perceived "ugly" shoes (I'm putting it mildly.) is unfair to the other posters who are trying to follow the discussion. Further repetitive posts of this nature will be removed without notice.

Thanks for your cooperation. :flowers:

Platforms are actually more dangerous than regular heels. Any podiatrist will tell you that the higher the ball of your foot is off the ground the more pressure (and subsequent damage) goes on the ligaments and soft tissue-as opposed to bones. :cool:

dazzling 12-02-2008 03:54 AM

I thought Letizia looked good. The black coat was really elegent and liked the match with the purple pumps. The bag is by Burberry also used on the Nov 28, 2008

Nice casual outfit, lovely colour. I love her belt.

I love the skirt & scarf, very classy. Although not the most official event when looking at the other ladies (eg Queen Sofia or Infanta Pilar) I find Letizia quite underdressed and the cardigan reminds me of an old ladies' knitting circle.

iakynthi 12-02-2008 07:10 AM

Well,Camarina,first of all,thanks for your "kind" words!The fact that platform shoes are trendy t h e s e d a y s doesn't mean they are elegant or "high-class looking".I also happen to read r e a l fashion magazines (like Vogue and Harper's Bazaar) and not Cosmopolitan for example.Maybe that's what wou were trying to say...

sgl 12-02-2008 02:18 PM

Camarina I know that they're comfortable (I have one pair!) but they not always fit to all outfits. And yes they're fashionable.

I like the outfit, especially the trousers and the colour of pullover. But the shoes are :sick:.

udyusa 12-02-2008 03:59 PM

I don't think she looks boring per se, but I have seen her look better. I don't care for the big scarves either or the platforms and her pants are way too long! Just my two cents worth. ;)

I'm not so keen on this coat. The material looks kind of strange to me. I do like the scarf, though.

udyusa 12-02-2008 05:53 PM

I swear, the more I look the more confused I become!! Now I am not certain about the ruffles around the collar plus, with the scarf, is there just too much going on? :ermm: Guess this why I am not a Fashion consultant. :biggrin:

i like this outfit today as it reflects the more informal nature of the engagement

The first outfit she wore in Coruna was lovely - i loved the grey pencil skirt on her the first time she wore it in Asturias and it is great that she has got a matching coat as it completes the outfit - really classy and elegant piece on Letizia and perfect for the event

The grey & purple is just gorgeous - an excellent way to prove that she can recycle well when she wants to ;)

pamk 12-03-2008 03:34 AM

Letizia's trousers are too long - they bunch up around her ankles and then she has on fancy platform shoes which look far too dressy for such an outfit -
The trousers look sloppy and the ugly shoes don't help any -

giov 12-03-2008 05:57 AM

I like the outfit Letizia wore in the morning, it suited her very well and I like the colours, but i don't like the second outfit at all.

So many fashionable shoes are ugly and unclassy!

Duke of Marmalade 12-03-2008 05:58 AM

I thought during the morning event (wearing a skirt) the outfit was very elegant. Different story in the afternoon with these horrible ill-fitted trousers and shoes that might have worked with the skirt but don't with the trousers. She looks plain sloppy next to Felipe in his suit.

biboquinhas 12-03-2008 06:45 AM

How can she walk with those kind of high wheels?They must be terribly unconfortable! I think that she wants to be high because of Prince Filipe...

believe it or not she's visiting Inditex, one of the worlds largest fashion distributors, including formats like Zara & Massimo Dutti.

watching Letizia looking like a mess at such an occasion will maybe encourage those labels to keep sending clothes to Zarzuela for the Princess to wear, as an act of mercy ;)

princess gertrude 12-03-2008 12:04 PM

Different pants and the last outfit would have been great. I'm not into the fitted trousers on her. I love the color and the big scarf. The previous outfit (gray suit with purple top) was lovely, great color and shape for her.

A mess, I disagree. I think, Letizia looked great. The mix-match of the jacket with the skinny pants with the printed scard all matched in a very fun way. Looks like a very stylish women in Vogue. I dont like the shoes but they do add such a fun style to the look:rolleyes:

You really like the jacket? I thought the jacket ruined the look (not the shoes this time).
It looked like a cheap fisherman's raincoat. Imo it didn't match at all.
I liked her pants.

I like this classic outfit alot.

leene 12-03-2008 04:35 PM

Purple is a good colour for Letizia but I really don't like the skinny trousers. Imo there are not many women who can wear those. You look either to fat or to skinny. To be honest Letizia looks a little bit ridiculous in those trousers

I completely agree. I thought the jacket ruined this outfit. It looked like it was made from a strange material, like the type of material used for rain tarps or tents.

catango 12-03-2008 09:12 PM

I think she looks so trendy in the purple outfit she has the body for it, the trousers are fine, she can wear it her body is amazing.

carlota 12-03-2008 09:13 PM

https://i38.tinypic.com/16c800p.jpg

i have mixed feelings about this one. it's obvious it was a more private visit and she wanted to "smart down" the look from the morning a little bit. i love the turtleneck and purple matching scarf, but the shoes are hideous, the trousers are ill fitting (someone needs to do something about the length! it looks like they didn't have time to cut them for her). the jacket is weird - looks very casual, but at the same time i don't find it inappropriate. the colour is quite difficult to pull off though. however, those sort of cuts are very much in fashion at the moment.

I agree with you. I think she should wear boots, maybe even a pair of purple boots (she looked very good in yellow boots on Felipe's birthday after the engagement in Asturia), then it would be a complete trendy look. I wonder if those clothes were from Zara ;).

Al_bina 12-03-2008 10:15 PM

Carlota,
I am inclined to agree with your views on Crown Princess Letizia's outfit. Perhaps ... flaws of this casual ensemble were extra emphasized due to Crown Prince Felipe's official look.

i don't mind high heels, but the shoes most of them they have this big platform, they look awfull, she has a complex about her height! i don't care her husband is so tall, it looks worst for me!

ikram 12-04-2008 02:14 PM

she is almost in public near her husband....
she is the most of the time among people , a lot of people ...she has to be seen by every one, by cameras, by photographs, if she is small and with "normal" shoes she would have to wear very flashy, shinny colors and/or big, very big hats like Queen Elizabeth ....to be seeing by people etc..to not beeing so small like litle girl near prince Felipe or the infantas ...

So I don't dilike her shoes, the most of the time i find them nice, sensual, "féminines"...nice colors, amazing forms....it's doesn't matter at all IMO ...

Every "small" ladies would like to be taller no ? platforms shoes exist...its fantastic !!!

PrincessofEurope 12-04-2008 02:15 PM

Getty Images - Unsupported browser detected like this outfit but she has repeated it a few times recently

I was thinking that maybe what she wore to the Inditex factory maybe had come from either Zara or Massimo Dutti as it would have been a nice touch. The clothes were modern and similiar to ones designed by these companies

donnaK 12-04-2008 04:00 PM

Colors work better than the platform shoes among the crowds unless the platforms can make you a head taller than most people, both men and women, like the Prince :smile:. Letizia needs to wear more colors, mostly she wore black, white or grey, too monotone.
These days, young women wear platforms because it's in fashion, regardless height or social or economical status. The other day I saw LA's wife wearing a pair of red platforms and she is not small.

it's not about platforms in general although i believe that those are most suitable for YOUNG women (in their 20ies or early 30ies) as a fun thing to wear. apart from that, they are worn by celebrities. letizia fits in neither category as she's a princess who should not be associated with the boulevard society, actresses, socialites etc.

but the most striking argument against them is that those shoes do not suit letizia's tiny figure and skinny legs, she looks ridiculous in them instead of trendy and fashionable, as for example penelope cruz.

i agree about wearing colour, felipe looks boring anyway in his daily suit so letizia should splash some colour, even if only with accessories.

i think that the most of poeple would like this look if it come from Penelope Cruz, or Jlo or QRania...
but its from Princess Letizia...:nonono:
its very difficult to be elegant with casual outfit, Letizia is, as always ....

Camarina 12-05-2008 06:51 AM

Yes, I agree Ikram,Letizia does not have to hide their slender and long legs IMO.
Regarding to the shoes, here in Spain it do not have been so criticized, in fact people will diminish the importance (perhaps because these are trend and people are not SHOCKED that a princess wear platform shoes). After all, here, a princess is a modern woman who works for her country and not a fairytales princess....
So platform shoes are entirely appropriate if Letizia likes IMO.


I've noticed that the jacket that Letizia wore last 11 Nov. in an audience in Zarzuela is recycled, she wore it when she was pregnant with Sofia.

I think Letizia and Penelope are similar in size. Platform shoes probably goes better with trendy and edgy clothes Penelope or other celebrities wore, than the conservative and boring suits or coat dress made by Varela.

both women have a very different body shape. penelope is much more "woman", fuller or curvier on the "right" spots, tiny but in no way skinny.

Back to Letizia:

Another exact repeat after only 7 days :rolleyes: (El Rastrillo visit last weekend).

sgl 12-06-2008 12:01 PM

I am surprised to see her repeating this so quickly, but perhaps she is trying to send a message about being responsible about clothing (not shopping excessively, etc).

Lovely suit, this is a great shade of red, not too bright. I like the match of the top underneth which is a recycled. I dont remember seeing this suit before, I quite like it.

asturiana 12-06-2008 12:46 PM

Great outfit. Red suits her.

donnaK 12-06-2008 03:06 PM

Lovely outfit indeed!
This is the best color for Letizia, suit her perfectly. Like you say the shade of red is also nice.
The top underneth match very well with the red suit IMO, Letizia wore this top some months ago with a skirt with the same print and the red suit is new.

Duke of Marmalade 12-06-2008 03:41 PM

I like the suit but find the applications on the skirt too much or even distracting. The buttons on the jacket are a classy addition to the outfit but the applications on the skirt are odd - from very close up we can see what it is but only from a step further away it looks like Letizia splashed coffee over her skirt at last minute. Hate the shoes, the shade of red imo doesn't even match the colour of the outfit.

carlota 12-06-2008 03:43 PM

indeed lovely outfit. the suit's fabric does look very good quality, that's why the red looks great- she has some red suits which look quite cheap because of the fabric.

LadyFinn 12-06-2008 04:52 PM

What a lovely outfit. The suit is very beautiful and the recycled blouse fits here very well.

I have noticed something about P Letizia, when I like her clothes she's usually smiling. She seems to be quite somber at times, certainly not all occasions require this, I would love to see her really bust a gut once in a while. The red is a great color on her.

ANNIE_S 12-08-2008 03:10 PM

Red suits her very well. She looks wonderful. And I want to say that I love the make-up that she usually wear time ago:flowers:

sgl 12-08-2008 05:05 PM

I like the color and shape of this red suit. Red is definitely one of her best colors. I do agree with Duke of Marmalade. The detail on the bottom of the skirt looks kind of strange, like a spill or stain. I think that this detail could have been omitted.

giov 12-09-2008 06:57 AM

I agree it is a nice outfit (except the detail on the skirt) and also the shirt looks nice with this suit.
Too bad those shoes. I don't like them, though they are not her worst pair of shoes.

ikram 12-09-2008 08:33 AM

i like the shoes...i like the suit....the make up is top....
she is perfect
just hope to see her, with the same hairstyle of the beginning, the period of her engagment and quite befor journalist

princess gertrude 12-09-2008 04:11 PM

Love the red suit, it's wonderful and the top underneath is great with it. She looks lovely and the shoes are ok with the outfit.
