The Spanish royal family travelled to Oviedo today to preside over the Princess of Asturias Awards 2019.
Over the next few days they will deliver a series of prizes to individuals, entities or companies from around the world who make notable achievements in the sciences, humanities, and public affairs.
This year marks the debut of Leonor, Princess of Asturias and Infanta Sofía at the awards. Felipe, Prince of Asturias established the prize in 1980, and in 2014 when Felipe ascended to the throne as King, the foundation and awards was renamed the Princess of Asturias Awards to reflect Spain's new heiress which came into effect in 2015.
Queen Letizia looked glamorous in grey for the official welcome reception at the Plaza Alfonso II el Casto. She brought back the shawl collared a-line dress which she premiered in December 2018 at an art exhibition. The designer remains unknown.
Below is a look at the back of the dress.
Letizia offset the grey with a new pair of red crocodile-effect pumps. At first glance I thought they were her red Hugo Boss 'Staple R100-C' pumps, but the new pair has a fully covered curved heel with black sole, and the toe is more pointed. They are a bespoke design by Magrit.
She completed the look with her circle link dangle earrings.
