Back with a bang.. Im not sure she can beat this in sweden... The dress looks lovely, unfortunately black, but black works nearly best with the sash, I guess its Armani or another Italian brand.. The jewels just amazing, Its great to see her with more then a Tiara, earrings and a bracelet.. BUT one serious Question, What happened to her face??? I was shocked at the previous events when she took of the mask, but this evening it looks even worse.. Its such a shame, she was so pretty.. And now?? At least we have the Jewels..
Yes. Unfortunately black. I just don't think royal women should wear black gowns to official events. It looks too somber and it doesn't stand out. Maybe this dress is pretty, but you can't see the details because of the color. Leti is wearing black in a sea of black. The men are in black tie. The Italian first lady is also in black. Everyone looks elegant, but no one stands out.
QE II understood this. That's why she wears colors for her day outfits. I don't recall her ever wearing a black gown for a state dinner. Usually white or colors. This was for the purpose of standing out because she is queen.
Also, I think big tiaras should be balanced with big gowns. Otherwise, the wearer looks like a lolipop. She should've worn a dress with a wider skirt.
Leti's hair has been blah since the pandemic began. Perhaps she parted ways with her longtime (and amazing) hairdresser. Perhaps she's just trying not to be too showy during these pandemic times. Her hairstyles of late have been very basic. I miss the flair she used to have with her hair: the stylish cuts, the pretty up-do's.
