Queen Letizia 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.
Her Majesty stepped out in a familiar frock which has become one of her signature pieces since she debuted the floral dress shortly after becoming Queen in June 2014:
To refresh your memories, the dress is the Hugo Boss 'Dinoma' sheath, rendered in the 'rose fantasy' floral print. It was from the BOSS 2014 spring/summer collection and retailed for €479/US$650.
Letizia accessorized the dress with her white Felipe Prieto flap leather clutch bag and nude LODI 'Saray' patent leather pumps.
She wore her hair up in a pretty pony-tail and finished the look with her Yanes flower stud earrings.
Looking back at some of Letizia's past outfits for this annual event, we expected Her Majesty to sport a corporate-casual style today. But she deviated from her penchant for pants and we were pleasantly surprised to see her don something a little more feminine.
