Where Are the Clothes Fit for a Queen?-------
Princess Letizia—i.e., Spain’s answer to Kate Middleton—is going to become queen. The news anchor-turned-royal wed Prince Felipe de Borbon ten years ago, and now that the latter’s father has abdicated the throne, she’ll be getting the crown along with her dashing prince.
The press has dubbed Princess Letizia, 41, one of “Europe’s most glamorous royals.” Sure, she’s drop-dead gorgeous, impossibly elegant, and is blessed with a winning smile, but why are these royals always so afraid to inject a little fun into their wardrobes? The soon-to-be queen seems to favor lacy frocks, mauve hues, and pantsuits, which is all good and fine, but they don’t do her justice. Somebody get this woman in some Delpozo (let’s hear it for nationalism!), Céline, or Alaïa after she takes the throne—something with a little pizzazz! Even if it’s the quiet, sophisticated kind.
And since we’re on the topic, it would be lovely if Kate Middleton could discover her sartorially adventurous side, too. Never has a vibrant Jonathan Saunders coat looked so sad as it did on Ms. Middleton in Scotland last week. Come on, ladies. We appreciate that it’s not so easy being queen, but cheer up! Or at least prescribe your closet a little Prozac.
