  1. Que bella. Me encantan los cinturones anchos en ella.

  2. Not even Angie will find anything good to say about this outfit. So tight it's a wonder she can breathe, and the horrible silver belt. A total fail from head to toes.

    1. Why do you think, she can't breathe? The dress is a slim fit, but she is slim. She can wear it. The bouclé material looks soft, not stiff. I wonder what designer it is? Is it a Chanel dress?

      A black belt and shoes would have been more classic. Bu as she wears a laid back hairstyle and almost no jewelry, apart from the beautiful classic earrings, I think the silver belt is okay.

    2. Is from Felipe Varela, her favorite designer.

    3. ¿Fracaso total? ¿Por el largo del vestido? ¿por su cabello? ¿Por sus zapatos? ¿Por sus pendientes? Me encanta que marque cintura. También con ropa más suelta. Siempre arriesga

    4. The designer is, once again, Felipe Varela.

    5. Of course, Felipe Varela! Did anyone find the dress? Which collection?

    6. Beth, I have read on one of the blogs specialize in her style, that the design of the dress takes inspiration from two pieces in Varela’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection. I can only find one: Abrigo Bouclette Verano

      Apparently, there are many silver wide belts in this collection.
      At first I thought it was the same tweed piece she was wearing in Paris, but I was wrong. This is a new dress with silver hardware and metallic thread woven into the tweed fabric. This gives meaning to the silver belt.

    7. Thank you @SIlvia, for these informations. The dress seems to be customized for her, I also couldn't find it.

  3. Once again an impeccable look. I love the dress and the silver accessoires add an extra 'bling'. I am always astonished how well Letitzias clothes fit, shoulders, sleeves, bust, hips, length, everything fits perfectly. Either she is lucky enough to fit in anything she buys....or, she has a good seamstress at hand. (Watch it Stéphanie, Mette, Mathilde ;-)....)

    Same for her hair. She surprises us with always new hairstyles. I love the sleek hair here. She either knows herself how to do her hair each morning.....or she has an excellent hairstylist on hand. And that's what I believe. Her hairstylist ist the best of all royals ( Watch it, Maxima, Stéphanie, Victoria.....it is makeable, if only you want it ;-)

    1. Exactamente mi pensamiento Beth. Ella se toma su trabajo para lucir adecuadamente.

  4. The wide belt is a miss because she looks too tight, but silver accesories re a good choice. These photos don't let you appreciate the nice fabric of the dress, with a silver thread throughout.

  5. It's too tight and the belt rather cheapens it. The style and colour are good and it should have worked. Not one of her best efforts.

  6. I think she looks like a million dollar. I'd steal the earrings any given time and wear it everyday at work :)

    1. Too late, I stole them already ;-))

  7. I like this outfit but I would have preferred this dress with slim belt vs. this bulky and big-buckled belt.
    Agree with Beth: Letizia surprises us with new hairstyles all the time. This time her hair look sleek and simple, yet elegant and professional. Yes, it is makeable!

  8. Beautiful ensemble. Queen Letizia hardly ever puts a foot wrong in the fashion stakes.

  9. Precioso vestido, elegante y funcional al mismo tiempo. A mí me gustan mucho los cinturones anchos en Letizia, porque tiene la figura perfecta para ellos. La que no pueda, que no se los ponga. Muy acertados los complementos plateados y los pendientes son maravillosos.
    Beth, la peluquera de Leti se llama Luz Valero y es la misma que la peinaba cuando trabajaba en la TVE. Estoy de acuerdo en que es muy imaginativa y profesional.

    1. Thank you @ Angie, I did some research on Luz Valero, I admire her work very much, especially her updos and plaits, but actually all styles she performs on Letizia's hair. Perfectly wonderful!

      I have no idea why other royal ladies don't follow Letizia's example and engage a personal stylist. Here you can clearly see that Letizia, who was a journalist and tv host before she got married to Felipe knows how the media work. I admire her work ethics and that she knows appearance is part of it. It is an honor and a pleasure to follow her :-))
