  1. These pleated skirts just are not attractive on anyone.

    1. Jeje, esas faldas no son aptas para cualquier cuerpo, pero para las mujeres esbeltas, de excelente postura y mucha gracia al caminar -como la Reina Letizia- son perfectas. Siento que no sea tu caso :))
      El abrigo rosa es mullido y amoroso. Me encanta.
      Todo el conjunto es magnífico, rosa y con toques negros. Perfectos el bolso y el cinturón. 10/10.

  4. Letizia has a very nice skirt and coat (I have an identical coat, but a different brand). I want however, to comment on the lady in black - it is a question of fashion taste. Dear ladies, do not wear black thick stockings for costumes and dresses for indoor events. It doesn't slim at all. The legs look like black cylinders and make a woman older- The same goes for scarves - for a walk, for events outside, with a coat - yes, but put them down indoors.
    I appreciate the efforts of the ladies present involved in the project, but they are dressed dull. After all, they do not receive the award every day, nor do they meet the queen every day. They could choose better, more elegant clothes. (Elegance doesn't have to be expensive at all)

    1. I suspect the ladies are doing the best they can with the resources available and their personal sense of fashion. Thankfully, everyone's idea of what is fashionable is unique to his or her world view.

      As for Queen Letizia, she looks very nice, but I do not care for the skirt. For me, it creates an unpleasant optical illusion much like your opinion of the lady's black stockings.

    2. re: the lady in black

      She reminds me of a flight attendant. She is wearing boots, which does make the black tights (American for opaque stockings, not sheer "pantyhose") a little more tolerable. I never like them with pumps. As for the scarf, maybe she is like author Nora Ephron and "Feels Bad About (Her) Neck". :-)

    3. 0...She is the most powerful woman in Spain, and one of the world, Ana Botin, the President and owner of the Santander Bank, I'm afraid she is not interested in fashion at all also she has no time for it.

      Delete
    4. Ana Patricia Botín-Sanz de Sautuola O'Shea (Santander, October 4, 1960) is a Spanish banker, president of Banco Santander, CEO of the British subsidiary of Grupo Santander and member of the Coca-Cola board of directors.

      The Queen is a "nobody", Ana Botín is the important one. And you dare to give her lessons?
      She is an intelectual, not a "model". She is very wealthy but she does not give a damn clothes.

      Delete
    5. Good grief - somebody daring to have an opinion (not give lessons) on clothes on a blog about clothes? What is the world coming to?

      Wonderful that she's so accomplished but yes, I "dare" to have an opinion on her clothes.

    6. Clothes? Who has said that this is a clothes blog? however the owner of the blog explains the contex, who the persons are and what they are doing, so for "you" it is a blog about clothes, I would like to know what the owner of the blog thinks, given that she does the effort to explain all the event....in fact some peoole could avoid the clothes part and only read the "bussines" part...thing some people do, as myself.
      "Newmyroyals", where is the clothes or fashion word?
      I thought it was a blog about royals, their work and you cam also see their clothes but it is the less important, as the blogger does not extend this part but she explains the event properly...
      I'm afraid you are a bit confused here...

      It is a pity so much effort when the people only see "clothes", Helen might publish only photos...

    7. @ Unknowns above: If I were on a banking forum, I would stick to the subject of banking. Since I am on a fashion forum, I do "dare" to comment on fashion. As both of the Unknowns have said, "she is not interested in fashion at all also she has no time for it" and "she does not give a damn clothes". I don't know that I would have gone quite that far, but you know much more about her than I do. I only gave an objective opinion. As for the comment that "(t)he Queen is a "nobody", I can only say that I beg to differ. Based on the sheer outrage by each of you, it is as though you are related to her. Please remember these are not personal attacks, just impartial comments on fashion choices.

    8. @Unknown 11:03 Yes clothes. The official title of this blog is, found on the home page, "The NEWMYROYALS - HOLLYWOOD FASHİON - http://www.newmyroyals.com/). "Hollywood Fashion" was in the header until the fairly recent update. Personally, I am happy that "Hollywood" was removed because this blog does not have anything to do with "Hollywood". While discussions will veer from time to time, business is not the topic of this blog, and for the years that I have been here, I can't recall anyone chastising commenters for commenting on fashion over the accomplishments of someone standing next to a royal. That is not the purpose of this blog. Adding to the discussion by explaining who Ana Botín is would be a nice courtesy. If you want to discuss women in business, I am certain that there are many well suited blogs for this purpose. If the focus of this entry was to discuss Ana Botín, Helen would have provided her bio and CV. That did not happen. Because this is a royal fashion blog, this is the information Helen provided about Letizia, the Queen of Spain, or in your words, "nobody".

      Letizia was wearing:
      Carolina Herrera pink brushed wool coat from FW 2017 collection
      Reiss Marlie Contrast Pleated Midi Skirt
      Hugo Boss Colyne clutch bag

      Helen went so far as to include photos of models wearing the clothes, as she always does, provided by the designers. Are these not your biggest indicators that this is a fashion blog?

  5. I don't like the pink and black combo, and the skirt is not flattering. Hair is a mess. Not a good day for Letizia.

  6. I like the color combination of black and ballet pink. The coat is gorgeous. The skirt is nice but doesn't photograph well.

  8. What a glorious outfit. The pleating on the skirt is so refined, and keeping the black at the waist and gradually introducing the pink gives a very slimming look. her soft pink sweater looks beautiful with it, and bravo for caping her yummy coat over her shoulders.

    ReplyDelete
  9. This is a simple practical outfit for this event. The Ombre effect of this skirt is an optical illusion, probably derived from something in nature, where a creature seems to be one color but can display a colorful fan of feathers etc. These pretty coats are in all the stores this season.
    The people being awarded are true heroes. They will never become rich working for NGO's.
    @Unknown 12:19. Correct me if I'm wrong, but A. Botin was groomed to succeeded her father in the family business. How dare you refer to anyone as a nobody? Is it only bankers, doctors, lawyers, scholars, and members of the 'aristocracy' who are above all others? Society would not function without the contributions of other professionals.
    The Queen is an accomplished person who dedicated herself to her studies when it was age appropriate, and worked at the same time, just like millions of students. According to the newspapers she was accepted into a doctoral program at the age of 22. Not many people can boast of that. In a perfect world she would earn much more than her current salary if she worked in front of the cameras.

    PS The most powerful woman is C. Calvo.

    1. C. Calvo is Carmen Calvo? More poweful than Ana Botin? Not in Spain, really...
      Accepted at a doctoral programme at 22? , not !!she was 25, in Spain the degree of jounalism is ended at 23 , then a Master... She never ended that doctoral programme.. so if you are so bad informed around all...

      In 2005, Ana Botín was ranked by Forbes Magazine as 99 of the 100 most powerful women in the world. [10] In 2008, she reached number 51 on the same list of women with power, according to Forbes. [11 ] He participated in the 2009 Bilderberg Group meetings in Vouliagmeni, south of Athens, and 2010, in Sitges. In 2010, he left Banesto to lead the Santander Group subsidiary in the United Kingdom after the departure of the former head of the same, Antonio Horta-Osório, to Lloyd's. [12] In July 2013 he joined the board of directors of The Coca-Cola Company . [13

    2. In July 2015, it was announced that the British Government had chosen Ana Botín to form part of the so-called Business Advisory Group, David Cameron's body of business advisers, [15] and at the end of the same year, Queen Elizabeth II granted her the Order of the British Empire. [16]

    3. @ 5:39 In recent times, even with all those accolades, it was not she who was referred to as such, and banking is only part of the economy.
      Whether the information about the Queen is off by a few months or whatever, she has earned her stripes by working. In general people with a thirst for knowledge and the ability to do research sign up for doctoral programs. If with the same origins she had become Zuckerberg or Richard Branson a different tune would be sung. People who are insecure always look for someone else to feel superior to.

    Imagine I never heard the name "Ana Botín" in my life. Maybe she's known in Spain. And I believe you she is an intellectual, a philanthropist and a successful and kind lady. As I say, I don't know who she is (like most Europeans probably). And I "dare" to have my opinion on fashion. I still believe that freedom of expression applies in Europe. Is that naive?

    1. Ana Botin is not only known in Spain, she is very famous at important places. It seems here people are a bit uneducated. By the way, here the blogger explains things well...it seems that here people do not like to learn nothing.
      A pity! The blogger does a great effort...for nothing..

      People "thinks" this is a "fashion" blog?....where are the models? The fashion? The designers? This is the New York fashion week? Lol...they are royals who go to "their work"... or "charities".

      So..this is "fashion" for you?

      You are a bit lost, I'm afraid.

    2. And you are also "lost" - a very narrow definition of what constitutes fashion. Perhaps you find English a little challenging?

      Curious how long you've been in Spain because it's definitely having an impact on your British English.

  11. For the record, no one person ‘owns Santander’; it is a public company traded on the Stock Exchange. Her family may own a fair number of shares, she may be well off and she is undoubtedly a smart person (no real metrics around for ‘the smartest’ to be declared). The point of the site isn’t to inform on the details of a specific event beyond providing the basic understanding of the context. If it were meant to be more than that, we’d be reading ‘meeting notes’. Most comments are fashion-related and respectful (with notable exceptions when it comes to the duchess of Sussex). The fact that one suggests black tights indoors aren’t the best sartorial choice isn’t attacking anyone (regardless of how important they may be to you or really the entire country). Perhaps it gets lost in translation, but in English speaking countries, cultural norms are certainly such that everyone and anyone should be able to have a polite dialogue (although some may argue that’s about to be lost in one particular English speaking country ... but I certainly don’t want to go there). Let’s keep to a polite dialogue, on the lighter (albeit superficial) side of things and breathe in before rushing to type unkind words - addressed to each other or to the characters whose outfits we’re all too happy to judge 🙂.

    1. "In English speaking countries"? Are you serious?
      I am from UK...what's your point? I am an expat..

      Ana Botín, the Executive Chairman of Banco Santander, has been appointed an honorary Dame Commander of the British Empire (DBE), by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth for services to the British financial services sector.

      Ana Botín was appointed chairwoman of Spanish bank Santander in September 2014 on the death of her father, former chairman Emilio Botín.

      She was awarded the title of DBE in recognition of her services to the UK during her time as CEO of Santander UK, a position she held between December 2010 until she took over the helm from her father.

      Botín, who regularly makes the lists of the most powerful women in the world, is one of only a handful of Spaniards to be awarded an honour from the Queen.

      The British Ambassador to Spain, Simon Manley, said: "I am delighted that Ana Botín has received this honour, reflecting her exceptional contributions to the UK economy and society. The United Kingdom welcomes foreign investors - large and small - that wish to expand overseas, for the opportunities that it offers to those companies and the benefits that it brings to our country.

      "In particular, Ms. Botín positioned Santander as a major provider of lending for small and medium-sized UK businesses, complementing the UK government’s wider efforts to boost overseas trade under the newly launched 'Exporting is GREAT' campaign," he said.


      As CEO she led the transformation of Santander UK following the merger of Abbey National, Alliance & Leicester and Bradford & Bingley building societies and oversaw the steady growth of the business to its current position where it has around 860 branches across the UK, serves 14 million customers and employs 20,000 people.

      In July, Botín was appointed to Prime Minister David Cameron's Business Advisory Council, the only representative from a foreign company to do so.

      The award also recognises Ana Botín’s voluntary contribution. In 2010 she joined the Board of Trustees of the Mayor’s Fund for London, a foundation that focuses on projects to improve employment opportunities for disadvantaged children.
      And in 2013 she was appointed as one of five external members to the Financial Services, Trade and Investment Board, which was established by the Chancellor George Osborne to promote the UK’s financial services industry.

      Ms. Botín has also been a strong supporter of the link between education and entrepreneurialism.

      "Thousands of students and entrepreneurs across the UK have benefited from the scholarships, travel grants, projects and awards since the bank signed the first of its 80 collaborations with UK universities in 2007, as part of its long term commitment to higher education," read a statement from the British Embassy in Madrid.

  12. 1. I think it is very disrespectful to say about people from other parts of Europe that they are uneducated because they do not know some Spanish banker and intellectual. (Sorry, Spain really isn't as influential as you think). Besides, I don't move in financial circles, but I know important historians because I teach history. I also know the names of some Spanish scientists and artists. How many important personalities - artists, bankers, intellectuals from the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, Poland do you know?
    2. Yes, I evaluate fashion and I don't care if the model, politician, queen or banker is wearing a dress. I notice whether the dress suits the given type of figure, whether it is suitable for the given occasion. I also regularly evaluate the dress of our President - Mrs. Zuzana Čaputová, whom I respect very much for her political and humanitarian attitudes. (I bet you don't know this name.) I always say openly what I like and what I don't, and it doesn't matter what credit the person has. It is called freedom of opinion and speech, and in our country we take it very seriously.

  15. To Unknown at 11:03 to answer your question "Where is the clothes or fashion word?" it's in the blog name Newmyroyals - Hollywood Fashion also the legal name of the primary holder of the website.

    Not to mention the implicit to be deduced from the regular posting of images referring to people's outfits plus information about the designers.

    The fact that the blog owner goes to the trouble to post extra information about the events attended does not mean that this is not primarily a fashion blog (in the broad sense of the word).
