We had a unexpected surprise this evening. King Felipe joined his wife, Queen Letizia at the Spanish finals of the FameLab International competition. It was scheduled to be a solo event attended by Her Majesty, but at the last minute King Felipe decided to join his wife.
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.
There was also a pleasant surprise on the sartorial front. Her Majesty looked effortless in an all-white ensemble by Pedro del Hierro. It features an asymmetrical overlay hemline and cross straps which create a draped open back.
The set is from the Spanish designer's 2017/18 fiesta collection and marks the first occasion Her Majesty has worn a peice by the eponymous label.
Letizia kept her accessories neutral. She carried her Adolfo Domínguez python clutch and on her feet were her nude Prada patent leather pumps.
She complemented the look with her Arabel Lebrusan Filigree Links Bangle (£745) made of recycled silver and plated with yellow gold. Letizia premiered the bracelet back in September 2012, but this is the first time she has worn it since becoming Queen consort.
Letizia completed the outfit with her hammered gold Bimba Y Lola earrings.
What did you think of this year's ensemble compared to Letizia's previous looks for this annual event?

The Hierro outfit is just brilliant, and this is a rare occasion on which I like a pair of flare pants. They work well in an evening context. I love the way the tunic works, asymmetric at the front and the clever cross-straps behind, especially with the cheeky view of a well-tonef rear. Accessories are great too, especially the ornate gold cuff contrasting the monochrome. A stellar outfit.

Lovely outfit, I have to say that I like what she's worn every year and couldn't pick a favorite!!

Hi Ana, sorry I've been really busy with the Royal Wedding for my other blog meghansfashion.com so I haven't had a chance to cover this event or look into IDing the jacket. Hopefully I will get some time next week x

Really love this outfit...especially the top! Love the design on the back. Not a fan of the wide leg though...it hides the shoes :)

This is a very nice look. The top is so uniquely designed. Although the pants are very wide, the movement of the top balances the bottom.

Actually, Pedro del Hierro passed away in 2015, and since 2012 because he was very sick, Carmen March has been his successor. However the name of the brand is still the eponymous.

However up to 2016, when Carmen March set up her own business. Now Nacho Aguayo is in charge of the firm.

I love how Queen Letizia balances simplicity with a twist, her outfits are never boring. Great proportions in this outfit. Love her in white.

I've been away. Happy to return to such a great outfit on the blog! I was just thinking on the plane how I have to get my head around wide legged pants again after these years of skinnies. The monochrome is so elegant and the cut of the tunic is modern, cheeky (as someone said above), interesting, and still elegant.

I love the design of the tunic. It a very unique style that would work well as evening wear. I hope there was no wind that day as it might blow the back open and be too revealing. Lately it's been white, white, white with Letizia.

The white top and pants were stellar!!!
