Queen Letizia was a picture of elegance as she welcomed former UN Secretary Ban Ki-moon to Madrid today.
She was on hand to deliver an award from the Spanish Committee of UNICEF to Ban Ki-Moon, who was recognised for his 'exemplary career' and for his work on the defense, protection and development of children's rights.
Queen Letizia stepped out in a new white and black off-the-shoulder dress from her go-to fashion house, Caroline Herrera.
The Carolina Herrera Striped Off-the-Shoulder Midi Dress is from the designer's Spring 2017 collection. The Italian-made striped knit dress has a folded off-the-shoulder neckline, cap sleeves, fitted bodice and is finished with a pleated A-line skirt. The dress originally retailed for US$1,990 but has been reduced to $796.40 at Saks Fifth Ave, $769 at Bergdorf Goodman, and is also on sale at Neiman Marcus for $895.50.
Letizia extended the monochrome palette to her accessories. On her feet she wore her black heeled mules from Carolina Herrera's Spring 2015 line, and she carried her white Felipe Prieto flap leather clutch bag.
Letizia completed her perfectly coordinated ensemble with her Coolook 'Luna' earrings featuring a black onyx stud with a white onyx teardrop stone and a contrasting pave trim.
Following the event, Queen Letizia made a quick dash back to Zarzuela Palace to join her husband for the arrival of the President of Peru and First Lady. The Spanish monarchs offered a private luncheon in honour of their Peruvian guests.

Hello Elisabeth. Queen Letizia looks AMAZING!!! The outfit is just perfect and well balanced. She is really brave for wearing those sandals. My own feet hurt just by looking😨

This is a gorgeous dress which fits her perfectly. I do think the length that Letizia opted for is much more flattering. I guess Letizia has been snubbing (with a few exceptions) the big French and Italian fashion houses, because Maxima and Mary wear them regularly. And now Nina Ricci and Carolina Herrera are 'hers'!

I'm 1,72cm tall. I confess that my heels never go beyond 10cm. I don't feel the need to wear 10cm heels all the time. For instance I feel quite elegant with 7,5cm heels. I don't know Letizia's height but why not shorter heels? She is a human being! Her feet are boiled! Kisses

Letizia is 1,67 cm tall.

Letizia is very focus on promoting Spanish designers, she included CH and Nina Ricci as they are owned by the Spanish Group PUIG, same as Paco Rabanne.

Queen Letizia looks very elegant in this beautiful dress although I don't understand why the dress was shortened at the waistline. I think that the original dress is more balanced and looks more chic on the model.

I like the shorter length on her - I think its more flattering on someone as petite as she is. My only niggle is I wish she's worn her hair up to show off the neckline. I do think she needs a trim - the shorter bob she wore a couple of years ago were perfection on her - and more youthful.

Absolutely gorgeous dress, very flattering. I'm amazed that she can wear such high heels every day!
