On Tuesday evening the Portuguese President reciprocated last night's gala dinner by hosting a reception at the Royal Palace of El Pardo, his official residence during his State visit to Spain.
The cocktail reception was modest compared to last night's stately banquet, but Queen Letizia still dazzled in a black feathered set by Carolina Herrera.
You may recall she first wore the separates at a dinner celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Spanish newspaper Expansión in February last year.
The set from the designer's Pre-Fall 2015 collection features a black silk mikado cropped top with feather and bead applique on the elbow-length sleeves, and a matching pencil skirt with a feathered front.
Tonight Letizia complemented the ensemble with her beloved Nina Ricci 'Arc' clutch, and on her feet she wore her black Magrit patent leather platform pumps which we've seen her wear on a few occasions since their debut at a similar reception hosted by the President of Argentina in February 2017.
Letizia's jewellery was on point this evening. She finished the outfit with a new pair of gold filigree earrings aptly named the 'Queen Earrings'. They are reportedly a gift from the President of Portugal from the goldsmith house of Ourivesaria Freitas. They are crafted by skilled Portuguese goldsmiths in a traditional Minho folk design. You can find copies of the style at specialty retailers including Etsy.
This was the sixth State Visit by a foreign President to Spain since Felipe and Letizia become monarchs in June 2014. Below are the outfits worn by Letizia for past cocktail receptions. Do you have a favourite?
