Repeated dress, new tiara



While I love seeing this tiara coming out of the vaults I think it overwhelms QL's petite frame. Maybe, if it's adjustable, a more narrow composition will help the next time it is worn (which I hope is sooner rather than later).

The embroidered dress she wore earlier was exquisite, one of the prettiest I ever saw her wear.

Wow, I didn’t think we’d see Letizia in the Cartier Loop tiara for many years, because it was my impression it is personal property of Sofia rather than “Crown Jewels.” It is beautiful on Leti! That column dress is the perfect dress to showcase her “big gun” tiaras. I love the First Lady’s dress too, perfect use of color-blocking for a fab silhouette.

I find the tiara too big ( if there is such a thing) for tiny Letiza.  It might look better on Camilla.  But QL did look lovely, simple dress, easy hair style and WHAM  the tiara

Welcome ceremony


A rare mismatch for Leti.
The cut of that coat, cropped sleeves, and shorter length makes it a 60's style coat. Should be worn with a shorter shift dress. And she has many lovely ones.
The dress is long and should be worn with a long coat. Again, she has many lovely long coats.

Another miss for Leti. A queen should never wear that much black except at a funeral. That's QEII's rule and she's right about it.
Here Leti is covered  in black from collar to wrist to floor and the dress is all one type of fabric with no design. Way too much plain black.

Meanwhile Mrs. China got it perfect. Her black dress is broken up by the white panel in front and the neckline is lower and the sleeves shorter, revealing some skin which also interrupts the all black. The design is also very flattering to her. She looks lovely.

But Leti's tiara is to die for!

How many people are invited to Spanish state dinners?
Looks like there is room for only one long table - maybe 50 people on each side? Rather small state dinner.
The Spanish Royal Palace is so large, I'm surprised there isn't a bigger space for a larger state dinner.

Buckingham Palace's banquet hall is huge.

Letizia looked beautiful for the evening and its always wonderful to see those gorgeous big tiaras...but somehow this look didn't "wow" me  Confused Perhaps its the black dress -- its slim and sleek design looks too simple for this kind of grand tiara. Also too much black can indeed look way too funeral and gloomy. Had it been e.g. rich burgundy color, overall look would have been tons better. First lady had much better dress...very flattering and with interesting details to enliven her attire.




YAAAAY I can afford it!!! And... any size I could possibly squeeze into is sold out. Of course.

Ahh, its such a pretty and romantic dress; and its indeed surprisingly budget-friendly [for a royal lady]. I love how its described: Not just your average print. Very true. Although I fear its wrinkle resistance isn't very good (zoom in and see those crease marks at the elbows; if fabric gets wrinkled by just bending your arms, then you need ironing it all the time or look like wrinkled mess).

State dinners in Spain tend to not having many guests. It's pretty much like this one all the time Wink For bigger events, they use other halls/gardens (F&L wedding for example).

Why do her tiaras look too big for her?  I mean,  this one is a beautiful tiara for sure, but something doesn’t look right (to me).

I thought the same thing when I saw her with the tiara. The tiara's are beautiful but for some reason she can’t pull them off. Maybe because of the hairstyle? Maybe she should look at the Swedes for beautiful tiara hair. Or because they are not really "filled" with stones or both.
