The King and Queen of Spain presided over the delivery of the 2018 National Sports Awards, at Palacio Real de El Pardo, Madrid.
The National Sports Awards recognises people and entities that, either by their direct activity or personal initiative or as participants in the development of sports policy, have contributed in an outstanding way to promote or disseminate physical-sports activity.
After the projection of an audiovisual on the winners, Their Majesties delivered the diplomas to Regino Hernández, Alejandro Valverde and Joana Pastrana among others.
Queen Letizia brought back the Massimo Dutti golden pleated skirt which she debuted last summer for a family night out at the theatre.
She contrasted the gold hue with a black knit top and her black Manolo Blahnik BB snakeskin-embossed pumps with a custom rubber platform sole.
The highlight of the outfit was a new pair of emerald 'Puri Lace' earrings by Rod Almayate (€220).
Rod Almayate was founded by Diego Díaz Marín and Roberto Ferlito. Roberto is an Italian accessories designer, who has been working in fashion for more than 15 years and Diego Diaz Marin is a Spanish artist and photographer who worked in Italy for some of the biggest magazines and brands. The pair created the label over 10 years ago in Florence under the name Schield. You may recall Queen Letizia has previously worn a pair of Schield earrings - their 'Cyborg Flowers' creation. Diego Díaz Marín and Roberto Ferlito recently moved to Malaga, Spain to change their market and style, and also changed the name of their brand to Rod Almayate.
