    1. Looks like the dress is strangling her..

    2. Agree,but whatever it is, it's on the top. May be the different shades of blue of the lace and the dress. The lace looks like a patch.

  2. Nice dress, but is it showing a little bit too much? maybe.

    1. Showing nothing, this is called an illusion, it has flesh color lining, it's often used on the cleavage, back and lining on formal dresses.

    2. No, she does not show anything, it is fake, no skin.

    3. There is a nude underlayer that covers the cheast area, if you see carefuly.

    4. No; el encaje tiene forro nude.

    5. Todos vemos el forro nude, por cierto se ve vulgar

    6. Nice dress but showing too much. Doesn't seem at ease on the last picture.

  3. Great colour, bad cut, terrible choice of lace front which looks downright tacky

  4. The dress fits and flares perfectly, and the illusion lace adds the creative touch that can be found in most of her looks. The curly hair frames her face for a softer look. More importantly though, there is such a lost look about her at this event. In pic #4 she holds her purse to her chest with her head and eyes cast downward. Be comforted...some of us see a a person who is engaged at her acts and is a caring mother.

    2. Yes, this is a fashion blog where many people, many times have stated their personal feelings regarding a royal and yes, she does seem to be a caring mother.

  5. No me gusta el encaje por delante del vestido, pareciera que se les falto tela para terminarlo. La falda si tiene buena caída y le va bien a la reina.

    1. Totalmente de acuerdo. El encaje parece un parche. Quizás si fuera del mismo tono de azul quedaría mejor. La falda en cambio tiene una caída bonita con los plisados.

    2. Lo que es no tener ni idea de costura, por tanto menos de moda. Se llaman "apliques de encaje", si es bueno es carísimo e imita los vestidos de las señoras ricas del siglo XVIII.

      Delete
    3. Anonymus 1:26. Tú siempre tan encantadora...sera carísimo y buenísimo el aplique de encaje pero eso da igual si el resultado final del vestido no convence. Solo tienes que leer la mayoría de opiniones de este blog sobre este vestido. Supongo que no todas serán ignorantes como yo.

    4. You prefer Begoña for any reason, right??

      Delete
    5. Tengo un poco de nociones de costura y diseño de modas, aunque no lo practico por falta de tiempo. Estas correcta en decir de los aplicados en dicha época, en donde se usaba encaje hecho a mano y con hilos muy finos, lamentablemente este no es el caso, el vestido sin ese agregado hubiese estado perfecto.

    6. There is a lot more sewing or design on top half of the dress if one looks closely. The fabric has delicate pleats and the different levels of the lace at the neck is unique. The lace insert does not leave anyone indifferent but it is amazing that women have the most prudish reaction. At the end of the day it is just a dress, and there are no uniforms assigned to queens.

  6. Letizia looks lovely although the deep/wide see-thru décolletage is a bit risque, in my opinion. But the color looks great on her, her hair is very soft and feminine, and makeup flawless, and jewelry tasteful. But does anyone know why she never wears her wedding ring?

    1. In Spain most of people do not wear the wedding ring nowadays, it is outdated. You can choose, it is not mandatory. Also she does not like rings in general.

      Delete
    2. It is indeed a beautiful ensemble. What strange question, almost an invasion of personal privacy. A simple reason could be that it was tarnished,sent out to be cleaned and what @1:12 says.

      Delete
    3. In my country, more husbands are wearing the wedding rings than wives.
      How about your country?

  7. Beautiful hair and makeup! Gorgeous dress! The lace is a different look, but I do not think it shows too much, no parts shown, not even cleavage. It is a bit daring without being trashy. What a lovely couple both in navy, nice!

  8. Too froo-froo for my taste. Busy dress and fussy hair style with too many curls.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Don't like the dress nor her hair this time.

  10. Attention Gentlemen, this is how a men's suit should look and fit! (Some Royals should watch and learn...)
    About the Queen's dress: it is beautiful in colour and style, but something is not right. Maybe it fits not perfectly over the waist, or no bra?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Her hair is beautiful, the colour is wonderful, and it fits perfect. I love this dress, but the lace on the front is very daring... if not too much. Of course it is lined and not completely see-through, just like with the dress of Meghan's official engagement pictures, but it is still risky. Some people will love it, but people will also say this is too much. Too sexy or tacky.
    I'm not sure this was a good choice.

  12. Love the colour and style, the lace V is a bit too big for my personal taste but she wears it well. Her hair looks lovely here.

  13. The dress is not appropriate for Queen to wear in public. And she has the look as though her feet are killing her. Why doesn't she wear more comfortable and stylish shoes?

    1. Virginia, Letizia is not "showing" anything. She is completely covered because the lace is lined with nude illusion. As for her shoes, it is a matter of personal taste. I can't imagine what you would consider more stylish--I hope not a lower heel. She is very stylish, and well made shoes can be very comfortable. I understand some women have trouble wearing high heels, but for those that don't, they are the perfect choice.

  14. Hermosa Letizia, toda una Reina. El vestido es magnífico, gran color, original y elegante escote y precioso movimiento en la falda.
    Gran maquillaje nocturno, hermosos y suaves bucles y sensacionales sus nuevos pendientes de zafiros. 10/10.

  17. I like Letizia very much - but what was she thinking here? The dress looks like a nighty. It is vulgar, especially in her position!

    1. Agree. She often takes fashion risks but this is low-class. It could have flesh-colored fabric but it looks like its see through & is revealing or implying to reveal what should only be for her husband. Hope she makes wiser choices in the future.

    2. What position? President's wife is eager to be the First Lady and she wears edgier clothes. Spain is,NOT UK.

    3. POSITION?? she is the first lady, and President's wife wants to be..

  18. I like the dress, it's not my favorite but I like specially the color.
    Air and make up are perfect and also the rings looks very nice as complement.

  19. Wow! I think this is the 3rd time Letizia has worn navy blue and wowed since September. I think people here have a good eye. On the lace collar, the center piece covering L's throat is shorter and darker/tightly knit. The lace scallop on the side of her neck is taller and a looser knit/more airy tatting, however lace is described. Thanks for all the photos, I too, was looking to see if the lace was lined all the way to the neck.
