The Royal Wardrobe: when weeks go wrong
Letizia leads the way again in a very odd week for the Royal Wardrobe

There's no point messing around here, last week wasn't the best for royal fashion. It was fine if you like tartan, odd sleeves and trousers that stop six inches too soon but if it's chic and stylish you're after, keep everything crossed for the week to come. It could just be subjective, please disagree as much as you want. Besides, even though there's not much to write home about, there is still a poll to pick a favourite (I think I know who has this in the bag already). Settle back and be amazed at a very odd week in the Royal Wardrobe.
Let's start with Queen Letizia of Spain who is usually on the money when it comes to being on trend. This week, for a visit to the FITUR International Tourism Fair in Madrid, we got the lot - culottes, ankle boots and a whole dusky pink/ burgundy mix thing and the result was overwhelming. If this is on trend, let's stay off it. There's so much going on, it's impossible to know where to look and at no point does this outfit ever really gel. In its favour, the culottes are not THOSE leather ones with THAT zip and she got Felipe to colour co-ordinate his tie. Which, on second thoughts, just added to the overkill. Oh, Leti.
