  1. I love the color of the queen's gown but, to me, it has a "bathrobe" vibe to it. Also, her hair is uncharacteristically messy. On a positive note, her makeup is perfect, and her pearl and diamond earrings are very pretty.

    1. I am totally agree with you Debra.

    2. I agree it looks very dressing gown like but I love it it is just unexpected and different for a change. the oh so popular wisps floating about do not succeed in this instance but just look like she got caught in a gale.

    3. It is the protocol for this event, Pascua Militar, celebrated since 1782.
      A long dress but cozy and warm because it is freezing.

  2. Sadly, the messy bun spoils this otherwise very dignified look.

    2. Totally agree, Jane. The outfit is lovely and it's such a gorgeous colour. Shame about the straggly hair.

    4. True , the messy bun is not very nice. The gown would be more pretty with a belt I think.

  5. Love this cobalt blue colour on Queen Letizia Very elegant and I think it may be a full length coat over a short dress or skirt. Like her soft wispy hair-do. Overall very pleasing ensemble for the occassion.

    1. The protocol is a long dress, it is a "castrense" (military) event but in the morning.

  6. The blue long tuxedo style dress is gorgeous. The color, style and fit are fantastic. The earrings are beautiful. Makeup is flawless as usual. However, the hair looks disheveled, uncharacteristic for her. Maybe from the elements outside? If so, I just don't see her hair stylist not compensating for this.

  8. Belle silhouette de Letizia dans cette robe d'un superbe bleu.. Les boucles d'oreilles comportent t-elles des diamants/saphirs et perles ? J'adore !

  10. Esos mechones sueltos es para que el peinado no se vea demasiado rígido.
    Yo la veo fantástica , incluido el color del vestido que es el color del año.

    1. La primera vez que los usa desde que se casó. La otra vez todavía estaba soltera, fué en su fiesta de compromiso. No sé que panfletos lees y además distribuyes información dudosa y errónea.Se los regaló Juan Carlos pues eran de,su madre, no de Sofía.

    3. Y en realidad los pendientes eran de Maria de las Mercedes de Orleans, esposa de Alfonso XIII así que son propiedad de la Reina de España, en este caso Letizia, le corresponden, no es un "regalo".

  13. lovely colour, very becoming and indeed a smart and elegant appearance.

    would there perhaps please be any info on the colour and make of her lipstick ?

    thank you,

  14. I like this dress, taking into account that this act requires a long dress, and being in the morning the design can't look too elaborate or have a " night/cocktail " vibe , which often results in outfits that look a little strange.
    I am a fan of de-structure updos, but this time the result is not good, it has the appearance of a hairstyle that has been blown by the wind or rain, rather that an intentional messy bun.

  15. Wonderful dress, hair and makeup!! Stunning and elegant!!

  16. I am a great fan of Queen Letizia however this time her outfit has missed the mark - just my opinion and the hair is a tad too messy.

  17. This gown is lovely. Colour is gorgeous and very becoming. A perfect fit, very elegant and regal looking. The Queen has perfect posture. Those earrings are divine, love them.

  19. Bellísima Letizia. El vestido es un ejemplo regio de sobriedad y elegancia, como corresponde a un acto militar. El azul Klein le sienta de maravilla. Me gusta ver de nuevo esos pendientes de su fiesta pre-boda. También me gustaría volver a ver el collar, pero en otra ocasión. Es impensable que Letizia se ponga un collar de brillantes y zafiros por la mañana, jeje.

  20. The gown is lovely on her, both in colour and style. I’m chuckling a bit at her messy hair....the Royal hairspray must have gone missing!
