The dress is ugly, ugly.  The cap is awful with the dress.  I don't like her hair or her shoes.

I like Letizia though

I think I like the dress but mainly because of the folds and the belt tie (I don't know how to call it) and the colour. It looks like taffeta. However I don't know if/when she can wear again because it will not suit a formal dinner with jewels and tiara etc. in my opinion.

The shoes I don't like, or the fur cape.

Those shoes must be 10 years old as thankfully that chunky style is well gone .... dress and coat no better and my hair looks like that when I go to the supermarket after garden work or just can’t be bothered to wash it

Princess MS spot on about her hair. I was hoping for a 2022 change but here we are with the same ‘chores/face washing’ bun.

The dress is not bad, I like it better than some body hugging Varela dresses at the previous years.  For such a big event, why not used a hair dresser ? Is Covid 19 so bad in Spain now all the hair dressers are unemployed ?

I quite like the dress, the cape is not my cuppa, but then it was probably fairly cold and she needed something. (the dress with the long sleeves can easily accommodate some thermal ski-underwear  Wink and the shoes, while atrocious provide great insulation with those extreme platforms - after all it probably takes ages for the cold to seep thru those 5'' Angel

PLEASE do not let 2022 usher in the return of platform heels!!  Fairy, I hope you're right that they were chosen for their ground-insulating property! 

I think her hair looks less good (I know the proper word is "worse," but that is a bit harsher than I want) than even Victoria's routine bun, which is boring but at least tidy.

Did anybody else see the pictures of her brooch dropping off and Felipe picking it up?  Laugh bounce

This is the hardest event to dress for. It's a daytime, formal, military event. She has to wear a gown that's modest and somber. For this occasion, this is a perfect dress. In fact, she might consider wearing the same gown every year since gowns for this event aren't suitable for other official formal events. QM in Denmark wears the same gown every year for one of the New Year's receptions. Takes attention away from what she's wearing.

It's a cold, January day. Leti's needs to wear a covering over the dress. What should she wear with a dark blue formal gown if not a dark cape or jacket? The other lady is wearing a white fur jacket with a pale blue gown.

Also, the super-high platform shoes are fine for this event. She wants to appear taller (for greater presence for a military event?) and the floor length gown hides the shoes. And good for her if these are old shoes. I doubt she wore them more than a dozen times before. They're like new.

What makes me shake my head is her hair. I cannot stand the severe, basic style she so often wears now.
I don't like Vik's severe updo's either. And they look worse now that she's over 40.

This is not a newly established tradition I presume?  Thinking So there must be an old sartorial protocol for the event to follow, or? BTW how had Queen Sofia managed in her time with her dresses? Thanks if somebody knows better than me  Blush

Correct, this is a well established event. Daytime formal is tricky, the protocol is a long dress. Being a military event, it also calls for something quite sombre, as opposed to Kings Day in the Netherlands that can have more of Max’s flair! Leti’s outfits have always been a bit hit and miss for this event, and I would guess the cold weather was unexpected hence the awful coat which doesn’t match.

Here is a compilation of previous years
