    I realize this occasion has a difficult dress code, he in morning suit and she i long dress but not an evening gown. I still find the combination of a prim blouse with a pussy bow and a floor length skirt odd. Both are beautiful in their their own right but not together in my mind. Blouse and long skirt reminds me of house parties in the 60-70s. Perhaps a crisper white shirt would have been better.
    Just love her earrings and how they match the outfit.

    1. Agree. The combination is a bit off the mark. The skirt is beautiful, I wish it was mine. I do like the blouse as shown with the checkered trousers, but not matched with this pink skirt.

      I agree. This isn’t one of her best looks. To me the soft, flowy blouse and skirt look a bit ‘limp’ when worn together. (V.M.)

  2. Este es un conjunto precioso. Todo muy romántico, ligero y sutil. El movimiento de la falda es espectacular. La blusa no es de Boss, sino de Carolina Herrera y la estrenó en 2017. Los pendientes son de Tous y hacía mucho que no los veíamos, desde 2014. Los zapatos Lodi tampoco son nuevos. La falda es de la modista de Palacio, un gran acierto.
    Letizia está bellísima y Felipe perfecto, como siempre.

    1. So the blouse is not by Hugo Boss.
      @Angie tells us the blouse is by Carolina Herrera
      Later in the comments, @Virginia, mentions that it is from a style originally initiated by Yves Saint Laurent
      So who gets the trophy?

    She looks beautiful. This wouldn't have been my 1st instinct to put together, but it works. It just looks so simple, yet elegant. Those earrings are fantastic with it. And her hair is perfect. She just knows how to nail it.

    I disagree, in my opinion this is a flowing, soft, flattering and very feminine look.
    The blouse is a classic blouse initiated by Yves Saint Laurent a long while ago.
    Perhaps the skirt is slightly long, but that is a minor point. A white shirt would have been far too casual next to the king, who is very elegant and in formal attire. His tie reflects the colour scheme of his wife, very sweet, reminds me of the Japanese imperial couple.

    It’s a rare miss for Letizia! Odd separates, put together. The blouse is more fitting for a suit. The skirt albeit is in keeping with dress code requirements is bland, clinging in motion.

    I agree, i think that a different material for the blouse was needed. It seems as if both pieces are "hanging"
    The rest is lovely but a rare miss in my opinion

  9. I have no idea what the protocol is for dressing for a New Year's reception, but, I can't imagine that the Queen's feminine pink and white ensemble would not be appropriate. The pink skirt is beautiful and fluid; the white blouse, with the bow is lovely; and her earrings are gorgeous. Her hair and makeup are done very well. And, of course, the King looks very handsome.

    Two pieces apart, with appropriate other pieces might be nice, but the blouse and skirt together are too droopy, and do not look well together.

  11. This is a beautiful, elegant outfit. I love the skirt, it sits well and flows beautifully on movement. The blouse is gorgeous, very pretty and feminine. The earrings are stunning, love the color of the stones. Her hair and makeup looks perfect.

    These pieces do not work together. Frumpy. We all know she has so many other choices.

    I think Letizia looks wonderful in this interesting pairing. While the top has a bit of business flair it does have a very fluid flowy style that works with the gorgeous skirt. The skirt is the real winner here. Perhaps she could have chosen a less businessy looking blouse but this choice is OK and certainly falls within the protocols of the very difficult dress code. Her earrings are stunning--perfectly matching the skirt.

      The protocol is very complicated, It is in the morning but a long dress is needed, however It can"t be an evening gown..

    2. @Janet. Thanks, you have said all the things I was just about to write.
      The only addditional thing I'd add is that the colouring of her ensemble fits in well with the decor of the Throne Room of the Royal Palace.
      Could this have been intentional? An arranged marriage?

    I think she looks beautiful. She has such an incredible waistline that she manages to pull this off. On anyone else this could have looked absolutely horrendous

  16. Le noeud Lavallière est trop long sur cette jupe très ample que j'aurais légèrement raccourcie afin de mieux voir ses chaussures ; j'adore ses longues boucles d'oreilles sur lesquelles je crois voir des émeraudes, rubis et... ?!

    I think this surprising combination looks great. L's sense of style is impeccable, she knows how to combine clothes with her own personal style. Her sleek hairstyle is spot on. -Siri

    I think she looks fine, although I agree with most that the blouse is not the best choice to pair up with the skirt. A more tailored white blouse with a boat collar and perhaps a small broach on the side,would have been ideal.

    The skirt by itself looks nice. The blouse is not the right top for the event, OMO. css

  22. Pienso, que es un outfit, muy acertado. La blusa y la falda combinan perfectamente, para dar un "look" romantico, por un lado la lazada de la blusa y por otro el largo rosa. Los pendientes, perfectos, largos y de diferentes colores a tono con el conjunto. Es un conjunto, simple y a la vez muy elegante. Pienso que Doña Letizia, ha dado otra vez en el clavo.
