Queen Letizia presented the 3rd edition of the Spain-India Council Foundation awards this afternoon. The ceremony was held at the Archeological Museum in Spain's capital, Madrid.
The Spain-India Council Foundation is a private cultural foundation founded in 2009 with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation. It works to promote relationships of mutual interest between Spain and India. The awards recognize the work of persons or entities who have made exceptional contributions to the bilateral relations between the two nations.
This year's prize was awarded jointly to filmmakers Carlos Saura and Zoya Akhtar.
Queen Letizia kept her sartorial choice simple for today's prestigious event. She wore a new bespoke number by her go-to designer Felipe Varela.
The sleeveless sheath dress is rendered from white raffia fabric, an elegant choice for summer.
Letizia accessorized with her white Uterque croc-embossed clutch bag and a new pair of snake-printed pumps.
At first glance, I thought the heels were her Carolina Herrera python pumps, but then eagle-eyed @HeavenQRF brought the following images to my attention:
From the photos above, it's obvious the pumps are not Carolina Herrera. They show all the hallmarks of Magrit design and are a bespoke version of these 'Mila' pumps - a model Letizia owns in a slew of different colours and materials.
Letizia's affinity for oversized earrings continued today with the addition of a new pair of cascading flower earrings. The pretty enameled earrings helped add interest to her minimalist ensemble.
The enamel line earrings are by Florence-based upscale jewellery brand SCHIELD. Letizia wears the 'Cyborg Flowers' earrings (€ 420). They are made from brass and plated with palladium and white enamel. The earrings feature Swarovski Elements crystals and a pearl centre.
The earrings are a designer debut by SCHIELD in Letizia jewelry collection. The label was founded by Roberto Ferlito, a designer who boasts experience working for the likes of Roberto Cavalli. Featuring a medley of unconventional motifs, SCHIELD jewellery balances the use of precious materials with eccentric and fun style.
