  1. Frankly, she’s the only royal lady who can pull it off.

  2. RL is killing it this week. Someone has let the real Letizia out of the box. This is who she is. Glamorous, articulate, and intelligent.

  3. Always surprising whether you like it or not, whether you like her or not. Never afraid to take risks in a pretty conservative country and with a young and modern taste. I think she is the most progressive of all royals. Almost always a pleasure to see what she is wearing. Elenor

    1. Spain is not a conservative country nowadays, Spain is like its Queen...She represents the Country..

    2. Spain is like its Queen. Yes, she is.

  4. Unusual but still quite adequate. At least we will never read that she is boring! In addition the leather industry is quite important in Spain.

    1. She’s channeling Monaco’s trendy style. Leather industry is important in Spain so I guess she was doing her part. I just can’t believe that after so many years she still comes through as being on edge and not comfortable with her surroundings.

    2. Sorry but this not a he first time she wears a leather dress. She has at least two more, and many skirts, leather leggings in trhee colors and many leather jackets. She doesn’t need to copy Princess Charlene of Monaco as you said. I think she is a modern Queen with a great fashion style

    1. Yes, a total show stopper. I love this dress and her hair is great! It really makes her look younger. Hope we will see it styled like this again in the near future.

  8. OK, this is fashion, this outfit is fun and for a queen it's cheeky. But in my opinion her skin looks pale, think her new haircolour or the colour of her dress doesn't suit her. In my opinion this outfit doesn't work on her.

  9. ¡¡Maravillosa!! Este es un vestido impresionante para una Feria de Arte Contemporáneo. Letizia es moderna, innovadora y puede llevar adelante cualquier atuendo. Y es tan bella, sus ojos son incomparables, como su cintura.

  10. OMG, this outfit is amazing from head to toe!! and hairdo and make up just perfect.

  11. OMG! She is killing it here, I like everything on this outfit, this leather dress is fabulous, well tailored on the top and loose enough not to be clingy on the skirt a few women can pull this style, but she sure does it. And wow the hair!! Good choice of nude shoes. I read somewhere above that Spain is a rather conservative country, not in my experience, quite the contrary , specially in fashion.

  13. This leather dress is great, combined with this hairstyle she looks very young. Only Q Letizia can carry off this style.

  14. She looks absolutely and utterly fabulous. It's so contemporary but classic at the same time. The hair just adds to the whole chicness of this look. I think this has just gone to the top of my favourite Letizia outfits.

  15. This rocks my world! Letizia has nailed it and she knows it. LOVE the dress, hair is perfect, nude shoes complete the look. Amazing!

    3. Anonymous @12:13, it never ceases to amaze me how a simple fashion blog becomes a place to vent your personal feelings about a person of whom you know nothing about. Granted, we all get different vibes from different people, but that's generally based on interactions with such people, not from pictures at social events, or gossipy stories on tabloids. These royals are light years away from my reality, why would I dislike or adore them? SMH!!

      Delete
    4. So true, Cherry Blossom. We do not know any of them personally. No dislike nor adoration, just comments on their choice of fashion.

  17. Ella puede cenar vestida como en cuento de hadas y desayunar moderna y rompedora, sin dejar de estar bellísima. Adecuada para cada ocasión.

  18. The beautiful makeup and the ultra-chic and very becoming hairstyle give Letizia a powerful jolt of saucy glamor but the dress badly disappoints. It makes that glorious black leather resemble a bin bag that someone tried to make sexy by cinching it in the middle and giving it a deeply cut neckline. Letizia is definitely rocking those stilettos, though!

    1. I actually have different perspective of this dress. The dress is not expensive but Letizia could really pull it off and made it look like a very premium one.

      Delete
    2. Agree with you about the dress. I don't like it either. The cut alone looks bad.

      Delete
  19. Like The Telegraph said, she is pushing the limits on what acceptable royal outfits look like. Not the first time, and in fact I don’t think this is her ‘pushiest’ one either. She certainly has the body and poise to do it. But just because she can, doesn’t mean she should. At least IMO. And she certainly had worse than this one, so I guess I will take it as her way of showing what Modern Art is about....

    1. The Telegraph has spoken. The same suit in several colours, preferably made of brocade, 2 inch block heels, thick dark support stockings (no matter the season), hats and gloves depending on the country. Memo to QL.

    2. Exactly, Anon 4:22. Since when is there a rule book about how a queen has to dress? She is a modern queen that is in touch with the times, not above them.

      Delete
    3. Exactly. She looks amazing. I'd your holding everyone to QE2 whose in her 90s everyone will be inappropriate. I personally think Kate who has to toe the line following QE2 dresses too 'conservative' aging her. A lot of the comments here aren't about the fashion but about the appropriateness of the outfit. It's almost 2020 let's please stop holding these royal women to a standard from WW2...

  20. Letizia knew her hairstyle & outfit would attract attention. She took the focus away from the visiting Peruvian head of state.

  21. In Spain people do not read the Telegraph, many do not know what it is...So we do't care a damm, in Spain.

  22. I am already prepared for being bashed after I've given my opinion.
    But I definitely don't like it. Full marks for trying something new and different but I think she went too far here. It looks tacky, especially with the high slit and the dress shows quite a lot of skin. I do not think this is a dress appropriate for a queen; she is a role model, young girls look up to her as well. And this should be a (good) example of how a queen dresses herself? I think not. Her hair and make-up look very dark too. Call me old fashioned, but for me this is a big no.

    1. Rosalyn, why should you not have the same right to mention your opinion? Nobody will bash you, I hope!
      As for Letizia here: I think I know what you mean, but I still agree with the first comment ("she's the only royal lady who can pull it off"). Letizia has such an undercooled radiance that she (and only she!) can wear such a dress and still look ladylike.
      Letizia is not grinning from one ear to the other, she is not seeking the cameras or something like that. In THAT case the appereance would be tacky.

    2. Rol model for young girls?? She is 46, I don't think so, for my daughter is an old woman, ha!!
      They follow the "Operación Triunfo " young girls and boys.. And they dressed edgier, I promise you!!

      Delete
    3. Anon: Like young girls wouldn't see pictures of the queen? She might indeed not be a role model for them, that's true, but she has influence anyway.
      Coralie, thank you for your kind reaction, I really appreciate that. It seems like I am one of very few who disliked her appearance and you know people can be harsh. And I agree, if there would be any royal to wear it, it'd be her. But still, I do not like the outfit. But luckily that's allowed! ;-)

    4. Rosalyn....and what's wrong with the Queen?? A moder woman with a career, studies, beatiful and hardworking, that is what we want..
      Back in the day I was hippie!! Clothes are no important.
      One thing is that you do not like the outfit, another ine is that your aretiaton is very ol- fashioned.

      So Mikey Cyrus must have been in jail....

    5. There is nothing wrong with the queen, not for so far as I know. And it's allowed to disagree with people, particularly in a honest and kind way. And yes, I already wrote myself that I'm old fashioned. Thanks anyway! :-)

      Delete
    6. Fashion is something that can be embraced or discarded depending on your preferences. Some people look at the dress and see a bin bag. Others look at the dress and see that the designer was possibly inspired by the style of a kimono, that even though the dress is made by a Swedish brand, the leather was probably sourced in Spain, that the dress as it is can be made in another fabric and sold by Zara for instance to people who like it, but at a lower cost (jobs), that the slits are not too high, that she may encourage young designers to be creative. Not liking the outfit is fine, but throwing in the children is too much. She was decently covered and not over the top.

    7. Dear Anon 1:44, thank you for your thoughtful response, I appreciate that. You make some points, I see. We all have an opinion, and that's okay, luckily. It's agree to disagree, right? I like it when people share their thoughts and opinions, and I did this as well as others. We may have different opinions, but that is fine!

  24. Interesting comments on this unusual look for the Queen. I saw the headline "Letizia in leather for ARCO and was afraid of the ghastly shoes and strange leather trousers she wore last year or the year before. I was, therefore, quite impressed with this look. It suits her, as does the different hair style. As others have said "she's the only royal who could have pulled this off"

  25. Rosalyn, I don't agree with your opinion, but I believe that you are entitled to it, and who Am I to try to change it?
    My only comment, is in regards of the sempitern " role model" , please stop delegating your job to public people, YOU as a parent are the driver, and the role model, you should lead your kids by example. YOU as a boss should lead your employees, YOU as a neighbor, friend, sister or daughter should be the role model.
    This is actually old fashioned, ( not the length of the skirt) when I was growing up my parents didn't blame my sometimes wild behavior on the queen, or the popular actress, they took ownership... nowadays every public persona seems to get the job of educating your kids....

    1. Alright, I didn't mean for people to stumble over the word 'role model'. Perhaps I indeed used the wrong word or description; the only thing I meant was that she, as a queen, is looked up to and has influence over people, and things or clothing can be questioned and wondered about.
      I remember years ago, that Maxima wore a leather dress and there was a lot to do about if it was appropriate yes or no.
      But thanks for letting me having my own opinion; old fashioned or not, it's agree to disagree, isn't it?
      Please know that I am not English so my vocabulary is not big and I might be using wrong words, description or whatsoever.

    2. The word role model is correct. Not only parents and friends are role models, but also public persons like politicians, economic leaders and kings / queens.

      Delete
    3. Coralie, you are absolutely correct. Parents can try to be the best leaders and teachers, but most young people will also be influenced by public people.

      That said, I do not feel Letizia is an improper role model by wearing this dress. It is not immodest and fits well. While it may not be someone's personal taste, I do not think it crosses the line of being a bad role model.

      Delete
  26. @9:09 Amen. Just as we have an opinion so does the Queen. That was her vision for this event where avant garde is the order of the day. Her influence can also be seen in a good way as encouraging more people (including children) to visit the show, learn new things, and maybe even purchase or develop an appreciation for art. That the dress should be questioned and wondered is buying in to the headlines that serve as clickbait. Notice the amount of good information that Ms. Electra has put into just a few lines as opposed to detailed itemizing and pricing seen in others while ignoring the event itself.
