OMG, flats!

You’re looking at Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano, Princess of Asturias, spouse to the heir apparent to the Spanish throne, here resplendent in white and blue.

Letizia, Princess of Asturias

The HuffPo fashion maven, whoever he is, got all huffy about this ensemble, especially the flats: “Seems like someone has a case of the summer style blues!” Last I looked, the poll was running in Letizia’s favor, something like seven to one, so my response to the maven is simply this: “No dice, son.”

    I dunno. I think it’s a cute outfit.

    This is one reason why I’m glad that I’m neither famous nor important. I really don’t need people I’ve never even met – and would never want to meet – publicly judging how I dress.

    Some days you don’t WANT to have to make a giant effort…

    (I’m also wondering, were she a he and therefore a prince rather than a princess, would there be the same judgment-of-dress? I’m inclined to think not.)

    I like the blue flats. Maybe he expects her to always be going about in a tiara, like a Disney princess? From what I’ve seen of royals and other super-upper-crust types, except for ceremonial or formal occasions they tend to dress down. Flashy fashion meant to catch the eye is for the nouveau riche and the lower classes.

    Well, if he were wearing that exact same outfit…

    I have to echo Andrea’s point here; I’ve collected a few shots of the lovely Queen Rania of Jordan, and in all of them, she’s gone for comfort rather than for maximum impact.
