The Queen of Spain and the U.S. first lady Michelle Obama were reunited today in Spain's capital for a conference promoting girls' education.
Mrs Obama is on the final leg of a three-nation tour to highlight the work of Let Girls Learn, a U.S. government initiative she launched with President Barack Obama. The program is aimed at helping young girls around the world to receive a quality education to help them reach their full potential.
Both the First Lady and Her Majesty spoke about gender inequality and the barriers that keep more than 62 million girls around the world out of school.
Following the conference, Queen Letizia invited Mrs. Obama to Zarzuela Palace where they took a walk through the palace gardens while further discussing the initiative.
Letizia contrasted Michelle's white sundress by Spanish designer DelPozo, with a new bright red frock from French designer Nina Ricci.
The sleeveless dress is rendered in viscose cady and features a sheath silhouette with a rounded neckline, a crinkle construction, and a knee length hem. The french made dress is from the Ricci's Pre-fall 2016 collection and will set you back US$2,690.
Queen Letizia accessorized the dress with her multi-stone TOUS 'Beethoven ' earrings.
On her feet were the Prada Pointy Toe Pumps in patent leather.
Letizia and Michelle have enjoyed a close relationship over the past several years. The First Lady is on record for referring to her royal associate as my "dear friend Letizia." Here's a look back at some of their past meetings.

Letizia looked stylish and radiant in the red Nina Ricci dress and the new hairstyle suits her very well. The length of the dress is perfect for her. Only the Tous "Beethoven" earrings were not the best choice. In my opinion they don't match the dress.

I quite like the dress (although the price ticket is silly, really), but I don't think it's an appropriate outfit for the occasion. And THESE earrings? Really? To a conference on gender parity in education? I don't think so. And even if they were appropriate, they are exceptionally ugly and tacky.
