The Queen of Spain received two audiences on Wednesday at the Palacio de La Zarzuela, Madrid.
Her Majesties first audience was with a representation of the Spanish Association of Business Women of Madrid, ASEME, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. During the meeting, topics of relevance for the business community, and women, in particular, were addressed, such as the effect of COVID-19, the challenges of technology, the labour market and progress towards co-responsibility. ASEME is an interprofessional association founded in 1971 to support and promote the full development of women.
Queen Letizia's second audience of the day was with a representation of the Code.org movement for Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The representatives shared their plans to democratize programming among children from all over Europe, trusting Spain as an entry point for the development of the project. They are hoping to replicate the US' model of success and train a similar percentage of Spanish and European students and teachers, eliminating any gender gap, salary or social that may exist. Code.org was launched in the US in 2013, it is a nonprofit organisation dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools and increasing participation by young women and students from other underrepresented groups.
Queen Letizia wore her confetti print Massimo Dutti shirt dress.
It was first seen during the 2019 State Visit to South Korea, and later at FITUR 2020.
Letizia again opted to complement the patterned frock with her custom rust-red leather and suede pumps by Magrit.

It's a welcome return for this pretty work dress from Massimo Dutti., just right for meetings on women in business and opening up computer access for young women.

I just love this dress unconditionally. I find that Leticia never looks matronly in those. For myself, I would have definitely styled it with the boots but the pumps look lovely as well.

This is a lovely dress and a worthwhile repeat. Somehow the hem is not hanging properly, although it looks to be fine on the model. The rust coloured shoes coordinate well.

Laura, I went back and looked at the photos after reading your comment and I think the hem is partly caught up on the step behind it.

Its lovely to see this gorgeous dress again. I do prefer the rust-red leather and suede shoes as opposed to the boots on the model. The pop of colour brings out the colours in the dress, perfectly. The first time I saw this dress I thought how very feminine and pretty it was, that is due to the attention to detail. Excellent choice for her meetings.
