The Queen of Spain attended the opening of the 40th edition of International Tourism Trade Fair (FITUR) in Madrid today.
FITUR is an annual event for tourism professionals from around the world and is the main trade fair for inbound and outbound markets in Latin America.
For the five-day event, Spain has partnered with South Korea, which concurs with the 70th anniversary marking the beginning of diplomatic relations between the two countries. South Korea is presently the third biggest issuing market in Asia for Spain.
For today's outing, Queen Letizia brought back the confetti print Massimo Dutti shirt dress she coincidentally wore for the final engagement of last year's State Visit to South Korea.
She again teamed it with her custom rust-red leather and suede pumps by Magrit.
Letizia finished the look with her bezel set diamond stud earrings.

I wonder why the hemline on this dress looks lower in the back than the front when Letizia wears it. It doesn't look that way on the model. I checked the previous wearing and the same thing...lower in the back for Letizia, but not the model. I'd prefer a more even hemline. The shoes are a perfect colour match for the rust dots in the dress.

I would have liked to have seen this dress worn with boots this time around. I like the lower heeled boot pictured on the model. Boots would have been appropriate for the event based on how the other ladies are dressed. The dress looks too long with the shoes and a bit matronly. The red shoes would look great if the dress was shortened to below the knee.

Sorry to reiterate what I've said previously, but I think this look would be enhanced if styled more casually. This is a relatively inexpensive dress (compared to others that she owns), so I don't think Eva Fernández should rush out and buy a whole new set of accessories. Ideally, I would have removed a little off of the length, accessorised with suede knee-length boots - possibly in a cognac colour and worn contemporary gold hoops. From the Queen's current collection of shoes, the rust pumps were a perfect choice, they look elegant against the sheer fabric and complement the red tones within the print. My only quibble is that I would have welcomed a different hairstyle, perhaps a relaxed low bun with a heavy side parting, to differentiate the ensemble more from its last appearance. Overall, Letizia appears polished and relatable.

Jennifer, Eva Fernádez is on maternity leave, she is due in February.

Hi Wendy, thanks for letting us know! Depending on how often Eva works as a stylist for Letizia (maybe 1 to 4 days a month) I wonder if she will get someone to cover her, or if potential outfit ideas were discussed before she left. There has been a strong start to the year fashion-wise, it will be interesting to see how her style varies over the coming months.

I do not know if we will have more news about it, probably when she gives birth. Maternity leave in Spain is when the doctor says (before the birth) and 16 weeks after. 10 of them can be done by the father, however it is mandatory that the 6 firts were for the mum. Then women normally add the vacation period, 1 month...so abouth 5 moths.

The Queen looks terrific at this event. Very pretty dress. Feminine, and elegant. The sleeves are soft, the bodice with slight opening adds interest. The rust-red leather and suede pumps are the perfect choice, they really lift the colour. I particularly love the application of makeup, subtle, natural, the last photo of her highlights this, beautiful.

Thanks so much for appreciating a dress I have failed to be kind to! I can look at it with fresh eyes -- this is what an intelligent fashion blog is all about :)

A workaday dress for a business meeting and one which therefore suits the engagement while not delivering any surprises. This one really looks Massimo Dutti, put together for safety and customer convenience rather than to raise any style stakes. I'm glad Letizia repeated the rust pumps, the dress really needs them to help lift the print colours from their subdued background. As ever, the Spanish Queen manages to look wonderfully well and elegant.
