Queen Letizia repeats Bottega Veneta butterfly dress for the Delibes exhibition
The King and Queen of Spain attended the opening of the Delibes exhibition at The Biblioteca Nacional de España, in Madrid.
Miguel Delibes Setién began his career as a cartoonist and columnist, he later became the editor of the regional newspaper El Norte de Castilla, before gradually devoting himself to writing novels. Delibes is considered one of the most original voices in Spanish literature in the second half of the 20th century. Throughout his career, Delibes received the most prestigious awards in Spanish literature, including Miguel de Cervantes Award and Prince of Asturias Award for Literature among others.
The exhibition is a biographical journey that commemorates the centenary of Delibes birth. It brings together more than two hundred works including printed books, manuscripts, drawings, canvases, photographs, etc. Their Majesties received a guided tour from the curator of the exhibition. Concluding the engagement the Royal Couple held a meeting with the children of Miguel Delibes.

It is a good dress that always make for a polished appearance and overall a quite solid look (although I prefer the accesories worn with it on 2019). Not much to write about, only that I wish Letizia would have her hair done. I understand the circumstances, but sure a cut and blowout at the salon can be done.

This is one of my all time favorite dresses in Letizia's vast wardrobe.

I like the details of this dress...the sunburst on the top, the sewn down pleats at the waist and the embroidery. Although blue is my favourite colour I don't care for this shade, which I find drab. Black accessories are fine, but I'd like to see this dress teamed with navy shoes and purse.

I adore the subtle romantic references in this dress, which are tempered by the cool monochromatic palette. The beautifully crafted bodice draws the eye to the V-neckline and the faintly textured fabric adds interest. Printed butterflies frame the bodice while the sewn pleats define the waist. Nina Ricci's Arc clutch is a design of beauty, the discreet gold hardware running through the centre is the epitome of quiet sophistication. I did wonder if the dress was a little snug across the bust, but I believe the effect is caused by the Queen pulling her shoulders back. The same effect happened with the bespoke burgundy Varela dress worn at the Princess of Asturias Awards 18/10/19 so I'm convinced it's the result of Letizia's perfect posture.

A very sensible inky blue to wear on a library visit, and a lovely Bottega Veneto repeat from Letizia. I really like the detailing, the sunray raised seams on the bodice and in alternating lengths at the top of the skirt, The embroidery detailing is nicely worked in to give variety without overcrowding. My only concern is the waist seems to sit a little high on Letizia which is a shame as it mars an otherwise well-thought-out look. Love the CH slingbacks to bits and black accessories work well accompanied by the smart Nina Ricci clutch.

Better make that Bottega Veneta 😖

This is a lovely, pretty dress. The addition of embroidery strategically placed across the bodice and sleeves is subtle and discreetly positioned. The pleating from the waist really defines this dress, moving wonderfully. The Nina Ricci clutch is a clever choice, breaking the block of colour beautifully. CH slingback pumps are a fabulous choice.

I'm not a fan of the colour, I find it a little dull on Leti. However, I love the movement of the skirt, it's very elegant.
