The Queen of Spain chaired the annual meeting of the Board of the Residencia de Estudiantes (Student Residence) today.
Located in Madrid, Residencia de Estudiantes was the first cultural center of Spain. Founded in 1910, the Student Residence was a vibrant hub for scientific and artistic work and exchange in Europe. Nowadays, it remains one of the most prominent cultural centres in Spain. It hosts concerts, conferences and exhibitions. It is also inhabited by around 20 young outstanding artists and researchers, which keep alive the historical legacy of this place.
We expected Her Majesty to don a low-key corporate style today. However I think her outfit was a little less business and a little more chic compared with some of her past looks for this meeting.
Letizia combined familiar neutral-toned pieces to create an effortless ensemble.
Queen Letizia teamed the Massimo Dutti beige linen-blend coat (€165) with her crepe cropped trousers, also by the same Spanish brand.
She wore a new pleated neck blouse.
Letizia added a touch of gold with her Adolfo Domínguez gilded python clutch, which coordinated perfectly with her gilded Uterque pumps and a new gold-toned belt.
Unfortunately, I have not found any clear or close-up photos of the belt to help identify it.
Her Majesty finished the look with gold drop bar bezel set diamond earrings.
At first I thought they were new, but it turns out Letizia dug deep into her jewelry box to retrieve these earrings which have not seen the light of day since she first wore them in January 2007!
I loved every detail of Letizia's outfit today and I thought she looked radiant. She is so good at achieving the right balance between business and elegance. What did you think?
