Today, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia inaugurated the 34th ARCO International Contemporary Art Fair at the IFEMA exhibition site in the Spanish capital of Madrid. They have attended this annual event for the past several years, but today was their first as reigning monarchs.
It has been somewhat of a tradition for Letizia to debut a new outfit at this annual art exhibition.
And she didn't disappointment this year! She looked picture-perfect in a new dress that resembled a muted version of a Mondrian artwork. She premiered a Felipe Varela color block dress which I think was a fitting choice for this art fair.
The bespoke tricolor sheath dress featured panels of white, black and teal green stretch wool fabric, trimmed with bezel-set Swarovski crystals.
This trim is a common design element in Varela's current bag collection, but does not appear in any of his off-the-rack apparel pieces.
It seems the Queen is fond of the colour-block trend this season. Just last week she debuted a similar dress by Carolina Herrera at the National Culture Awards.
Today, she color coordinated the dress with her black Felipe Varela chevron quilted clutch and new teal suede pointed toe pumps.
At first glance I thought her shoes were the Magrit platform pumps she wore to the National Day parade, but on closer inspection I noticed that the the style was different. These pumps don't have a platform and have a fully covered suede heel. The style is similar to her Magrit black suede pumps so I'm still inclined to think they are by Magrit.
Today, we also saw the return of her black star-burst drop earrings with diamond hoops. She first wore them in February 2014 but they remain unidentified.
I think Queen Letizia put a lot of thought into her outfit today and selected the perfect ensemble with a a nod to contemporary art.
