The Queen of Spain welcomed audiences at the Palace of Zarzuela today. She first meet with representatives of the Royal Academy of Engineering, followed by an audience with delegates from the ASPAYM Castilla y León Foundation.
Queen Letizia looked smart and professional in her signature tailored style.
Her Majesty wore a tweed peplum top which we first saw in November 2016 at the Spanish Episcopal Conference. She went on to wear the piece a couple more times during the winter season.
Unfortunately, the brand/designer of the top is still unknown.
Letizia teamed it with a new pair of black trousers today. They are the Hugo Boss BOSS 'Tipulida' Stretch Wool Suit Pants (US$325) featuring a slim-leg, cuffed hems and a button-detailed tab at the waist.
She added some height with her CH Carolina Herrera black suede pointed toe pumps.
Letizia finished the understated look with her dainty Chanel Comète Earrings.
Queen Letizia joined King Felipe today for the official opening of the 37th ARCO International Contemporary Art Fair at the Ifema exhibition site in Madrid.
The event attracts collectors, curators, museum directors, gallery owners, artists and professionals from all around the world, which makes the show a unique and unmissable event on the international art calendar. Their Majesties enjoyed mingling with the exhibitors.
The Spanish Queen sported a bright red ensemble today, making it easy to spot her amongst the large crowds.
This new outfit consists of a chiffon blouse with long billow sleeves and a matching midi skirt. Unfortunately, we are yet to establish the brand/designer of the separates.
The look was coordinated with her red Carolina Herrera 'Maysa' snakeskin clutch bag and red suede Magrit 'Francesca' over-the-knee boots (US$688).
Letizia wore her hair in a loose bun and finished the outfit with her Gold & Roses Double Dagger Earrings.
It is somewhat of a tradition for Letizia to premier an outfit at this annual art exhibition. Here's a look back at her previous ARCO ensembles. Do you have a favourite?
Queen Letizia attended a meeting today with the Government Delegation for Gender Violence.
She arrived at the governmental headquarters in Madrid wearing her HUGO 'Mathia' cheetah-print coat (£369.99), which she debuted earlier this month in Mérida. The style is currently available at Zolando (UK) where it has been reduced to £221.99.
Under the coat Letizia sported an edgy ensemble she first wore in 2016 at the "Francisco Cerecedo" Journalism Award ceremony (shown on right).
The outfit consists of a black Utrerque leather peplum top embellished with metal studs, and a coordinating black studded clutch bag also by the Spanish label.
Letizia offset the rocker-chic style with convectional black straight-leg trousers and her Hugo Boss 'Staple R100-C' Black Crocodile-Embossed Pumps.
She finished the look with her elegant Chanel Comète Earrings.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia were accompanied by Felipe's parents, King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, and eldest sister Infanta Elena, to deliver the 2016 edition of the National Sports Awards.
The awards are issued by the Spanish Sports Council and recognize exceptional athletic performance, and also recognize individuals or entities who have made a significant contribution to the promotion of sport.
For today's ceremony held at the Royal Palace of El Pardo near Madrid, âQueen Letizia brought back the contemporary cape dress from last year's Innovation and Design Awards. The designer of the olive green number still remains a mystery.
Today she teamed it with a new set of snakeskin accessories adorned with metal studs. The punk-inspired pieces are custom creations from Magrit. The bag is based on the designer's 'Lula' model (â¬300).
Letizia also premiered a pair of large teardrop earrings featuring yellow and green gemstones. They are by Mexican born jeweler Daniel Espinosa.
The earrings are from the label's 'Marquesa' collection and were gifted to Letizia when she visited Mexico in June 2015 as claimed on the jeweler's Instragram page.
The professional elegance of today's outfit was consistent with Letizia's previous sartorial choices for this event, however it topped the contemporary scale compared to her past looks.
The Queen of Spain met with the board of directors of the Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases (FEDER) today of which she is honorary president.
Her Majesty stepped out in a familiar Hugo Boss ensemble for the outing.
The coordinating set includes the BOSS 'Colorina' wool-blend striped coat and matching BOSS 'Malivi' skirt. Both pieces have sold out.
We first saw her wear this color-block set in November 2016 during the State Visit to Portugal, then for lunch with the German president in February 2017, and most recently on a visit to Joma Sports in January.
Letizia complemented the look with the same pieces she put on for the Joma Sports outing. They include the Hugo Boss 'Foebe' knit wool top, her Hugo Boss 'Luxury Staple C' Leather clutch bag and camel vintage-inspired block heels also by the German brand.
She rounding off the smart outfit with her dainty diamond square halo earrings which have been in her jewelry box for some time.
King Felipe and Queen Letizia attended the 2017 National Innovation and Design Awards today.
Their Majesties were on hand to deliver the prizes which are Spain's highest recognition of companies and professionals who excel in the fields of design and innovation.
For her arrival at the Forest Theater in the Spanish capital, Queen Letizia wrapped up in a black tuxedo style coat, keeping out the city chill. The new piece is the BOSS Hugo Boss 'Cortalea' coat (€849) spun from soft wool-cashmere blend, and accented with a satin-trimmed shawl collar and button fastenings.
She softened the tailored look with a dusty pink lace blouse and black wide leg trousers. The top is the Zara 'Faded Lace T-Shirt' (US$49.90 / sold out) featuring long blouson sleeves and scalloped hem.
Letizia married the pink and black colour scheme with a perfectly coordinating woven leather bag from Malababa. It is the 'Hermenegilda' model (€298 / sold out) - a style she also owns in a natural colourway.
On her feet she wore her trusty black LODI patent leather straight-vamp pumps.
Letizia finished the ensemble with her interchangeable Coolook smoky quartz 'Big Candy' stud earrings (€149) and 'Hera' pendants (€247).
The Queen of Spain presided over the presentation of the 28th edition of the Tomás Francisco Prieto Prize today. The award recognizes the professional and personal trajectory of renowned artists and this year's recipient was the sculptor Victoria Civera.
She later handed out diplomas to the graduating students of Master in Media of Graphic Printing, Illustration and Artistic Coinmaking.
Queen Letizia showcased a chic look, recycling the Roberto Verino Jacquard Skirt from the label’s 2016 autumn/winter collection. She first wore the pencil skirt in December last year at the Girona Foundation meeting.
Today she teamed it with a new black knit top featuring elbow length sleeves and a thin tie at the neck. The brand is unknown.
On her feet were her black Prada saffiano pumps.
Letizia topped off her look with her Coolook Géminis Earrings.
The Queen of Spain put on a stylish display today when she stepped out in the ancient city of Mérida to attend a ceremony for the Princess of Girona Arts and Letters Foundation Award 2018.
She arrived at the Alcazaba Cultural Center wearing a new grey cheetah print topper by Hugo Boss. It is the German brand's HUGO 'Mathia' coat (£369.99). Blended with a hint of wool for warmth, this relaxed-fit coat is cut to a chic kimono shape, featuring oversized lapels, seam pockets and smooth lining for comfort. The style is currently available at Zolando (UK) where it has been reduced to £221.99.
Letizia took off the patterned coat to reveal a new white smoking-inspired jacket. The white crepe blazer with black piping is reportedly by Carolina Herrera New York.
She complemented the style with a sexy black lace-trimmed camisole and slim black trousers.
The distinctive embellishment on the hem made the pants easy to identify. They are the Hugo Boss HUGO 'Heylen' trousers (£189). These slim-leg trousers are crafted in a lightweight stretch fabric with a hint of cotton, and detailed with gleaming pearls at the hems.
Letizia carried a new handbag today by Uterque (£180 / SOLD OUT).
The bag made of high quality cowhide leather and features a front foldover flap with a buckle and press stud fastener. It has a chunky black chain with optional use of one or two handles. The interior has three main compartments: one zipped central compartment and two open side pockets.
Her black Prada saffiano pumps coordinated perfectly with the textured leather bag.
Letizia rounded off the look with her Gold & Roses Double Dagger Earrings.
Queen Letizia combines a professional look with playful polka-dots at an arts awards ceremony in Malaga
King Felipe and Queen Letizia were in the Costa del Sol region today to attend the Gold Medals of Merit in Fine Arts 2016 ceremony at the Center Pompidou Málaga.
Their Majesties delivered the awards which serve to recognize individuals and organizations that have made a significant contribution to the education, development, dissemination or preservation of the Fine Arts.
Queen Letizia opted for a professional look in traditional nautical colours of navy and white for today's visit to the port city of Málaga.
Keeping out the seaside chill, Letizia wrapped up in a dark blue coat. I believe she may be wearing her Hugo Boss 'Canika1' Belted Wool Coat with an added faux fur collar. She first wore the piece in January 2017 for a meeting with the AECC.
Some royal fashion bloggers have suggested she is wearing the BOSS 'Casala' Virgin Wool Coat, but I don't think this is the case. The seams and collar shape of the 'Canika1' coat are a better match compared with the 'Casala'. Furthermore, I have been unable to find the 'Casala' style in the navy blue colourway.
Letizia premiered a navy pant suit reportedly by BOSS. The blazer features a lapelless jacket with thin metal closure. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find the style in the Hugo Boss product catalogue.
Underneath the jacket Letizia wore a new navy/ecru polka dot silk blouse from the F/W 2017 Collection of CH Carolina Herrera (€295).
She coordinated the look with her Caroline Herrera 'Baret' navy/red colour-block flap clutch bag and Magrit leather pumps.
Letizia finished the outfit with her TOUS blue stone and baroque pearl dangle earrings.
Queen Letizia chaired the seventh annual Forum Against Cancer meeting in Madrid today, organized as part of the events to mark World Cancer Day on February 4th.
In her role as honorary president of the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC), Her Majesty delivered a short speech to open the session. She made a deeply personal remark related to loved ones dealing with a cancer diagnosis. The Queen said (translated): "Five weeks ago a person I love very much was diagnosed with a complicated cancer, it is not the first time in my personal life, but it is the most recent case.” Here is the full transcript of the speech, or you can watch it below:
Queen Letizia stepped out in a chic yet business-like look for today's conference. She mixed new with old to create a fresh ensemble.
Sticking to a simple colour pallet of navy and white, Letizia teamed her Hugo Boss 'Banora' silk blouse (£169) with a new navy skirt.
The knee-length skirt is reportedly by Carolina Herrera. I have been unable to locate the style in the designer's inventory but the skirt detail on the green dress shown below from Herrera's current collection is very similar to the pleated flounce hem on Letizia's skirt
The Spanish Queen added to her stylish ensemble with a navy Hugo Boss coat draped over her shoulders. She has had the piece for a few years and first wore it to a board meeting with the AECC in December 2014.
Letizia coordinated the look with her Magrit 'Claudia' slingback pumps in navy leather, and ocean blue Felipe Varela Clutch with Swarovski Crystals.
She finished the outfit with a new pair of crystal earrings. They are the 'Shi' style (€129.90) by Spanish jewellery brand, Luxenter. The open teardrop earrings feature a mix green and blue hydrothermal quartz stones set in silver black rhodium.
