On Tuesday evening the Israeli President and his wife reciprocated the previous night's gala dinner by hosting a reception at the Royal Palace of El Pardo, their official residence during their State visit to Spain.
The cocktail reception was modest compared to last night's stately banquet, but Queen Letizia still dazzled in a black and white sequined number.
She debuted the Carolina Herrera Dégradé Sequin Silk Midi Dress (US$5,990). The sleeveless silk dress is designed with a jewel neckline and a fluid chiffon skirt which flares in a flattering A-line silhouette to an elegant mid-calf length.
The designer dress is decorated with black liquid-shine sequins from shoulder to hip, and white round paillettes throughout. Below is a closeup of the sequin detail.
Letizia teamed the sparkly cocktail dress with simple black accessories. She carried her Felipe Varela satin clutch and on her feet she wore her LODI straight-cut vamp patent pumps.
Her Majesty wore diamond chanton earrings which are part of the joyas de pasar - a collection of jewels designated by Queen Ena in her will for the select use of Spanish queens.
However, Letizia left the joyas de pasar bracelets in the royal vault and instead accessorized with a wide mesh-style bracelet and a knotted chain bracelet. She also wore her mysterious green stone ring.
The two bracelets hark back to her days as the Princess of Asturias. Here we see them worn independently.
This was the fifth State Visit of a foreign President to Spain in the three plus years that Felipe and Letizia have been on the Throne. Below are the past outfits worn by Letizia for these cocktail receptions. Do you have a favourite?
