Queen Letizia attended the Spanish finals of the FameLab International competition this evening at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Madrid.
FameLab, founded in the United Kingdom, is an annual communications competition designed to give scientists and engineers a platform to share their enthusiasm for their subject with the public. The contestants are required to break down their science, technology and engineering concepts into fun and entertaining three minute presentations. The winner from each participating country gets to battle it out at the FameLab International Grand Final in June at the Cheltenham Science Festival.
Her Majesty looked effortless in a trendy black and white ensemble befitting the demographic of the event.
She teamed a white Massimo Dutti textured weave gilet (£139) with black leather leggings. The longline vest is a new addition to Letizia's closet. It features a straight cut, notch lapels, front double-breasted fastening and two side pockets.
I originally thought the trousers were her Hugo Boss leather pants which she first wore in 2013, but I then realised they were new because they don't have the ponte back panel and knee seams.
I believe they are the Uterque black nappa leggings (£325) as suggested by a commenter below. You may recall that Letizia also owns this style in white and navy.
On her feet, Letizia wore her trusty Prada Saffiano patent leather pointy toe pumps. She offset the outfit with her light beige Hugo Boss 'Prika-E' envelope clutch bag - a staple style of the BOSS collection which is still available for £299.
Letizia released a new pair of hook earrings which are designed with an open circle linked to a drop bead. At the moment the brand/jeweller is unknown.
Letizia consistently opts for a modern or edgy look for this event. In 2014 she went tribal in Hugo Boss ethnic pants. In 2015 Letizia showed off her gorgeous pins in a Uterque suede mini dress, and last year she choose contemporary separates from Nina Ricci.
