On Day 2 of the Princess of Asturias Awards, the King and Queen of Spain began their day at the Reconquista Hotel in Oviedo where they met with the the 2015 Princess of Asturias Award laureates.
For this morning's event, Her majesty repeated the Carolina Herrera red split-neck dress which she premiered earlier this month at the officially opening of the 2015/2016 Vocational Training courses.
On her feet were the Lodi 'Sara' burgundy/black pumps (sold out).
And we got a glimpse of her Ruby cabochon dangle earrings (unidentified).

That evening, their Majesties presided over the annual Princess of Asturias awards ceremony held at the Campoamor Theater in Oviedo.They were joined on the blue carpet by King Felipe's mother, Queen Sofia.
Once inside the theater, Felipe and Letizia took their places at the head table to deliver the awards, while Sofia went to the Royal Box.
This event is one of the most anticipated on the Spanish royal calendar and we are always intrigued to see what Queen Letizia will wear to this annual gala. Tonight, she did not disappoint, premiering a tiered Felipe Varela number.
The bespoke dress is made from black silk cady fabric and features an asymmetric ruffled skirt with an ombre effect. The silhouette is reminiscent of a Spanish flamenco dress.
The dress in itself was remarkable, but Her Majesty's choice of jewellery topped it off! Tonight Queen Letizia wore a beautiful choker pearl necklace from the Spanish Crown collection.
The piece was originally a wedding gift to Maria de las Mercedes of Orléans from her husband King Alfonso XII. Upon her untimely death in 1878 it reverted to the Crown and became reserved for the sovereign of Spain.
Queen Letizia cordinated the pearl necklace with a pair of diamond and pearl earrings from Spanish jeweler, Ansorena. You may recall that in 2009, the then Prince Felipe commissioned Ansorena to design the "Princess" Fleur de Lys tiara on the occasion of the royal couple's fifth wedding anniversary.
Rounding off Queen Letizia's impeccable ensemble were her Magrit 'Mila' black patent pointed toe pumps and a black satin clutch.
