Queen Letizia repeats Zara floral dress for World Red Cross & Red Crescent Day 2021
The Queen of Spain presided over the official act of the annual celebration of World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day 2021 in Spain, at the Teaching Centre of the Spanish Red Cross, Madrid. The 8th of May is the anniversary of the birth of Henry Dunant, the founder of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the recipient of the first Nobel Peace Prize.
The celebration of World Red Cross and Crescent Day takes place during the largest operation in the history of the Spanish Red Cross, the Red Cross RESPONDE Plan against COVID-19, through which it has already supported more than 4 million vulnerable people in Spain impacted by the pandemic, and more than 700 million people around the world through the International Movement of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.
During the event, under the slogan 'From society to society' videos were screened and the humanitarian organisation presented its 2020 Gold Medals (whose delivery had to be postponed due to the pandemic) and the 2021 Plaque of Honor. Her Majesty gave a speech in which she said "We are the Red Cross who are part of society. For this reason, behind this organisation should be the will of all (administrations, private sector, each citizen) to help and share, because it is not possible to live turning our backs on us. It is, as President Rocca has said, a time of kindness. And of union and responsibility".

I am sorry to say that I find this dress of such poor quality that I am disappointed to see it repeated again. There is no hang whatsoever, and the dress should be accompanied by a teal slip (like the Zara stock image above) not white. Despite my dislike for the dress, in the warm lighting of the Teaching Centre, the dusty pink patent pumps and gorgeous Yanes earrings improve the overall look considerably - the Queen looks very pretty.

I'm impressed once more at how much elegance Letizia can achieve with this fairly standard high street elasticated waist style. It's something I'm unable to attempt without looking like a trussed up suet pudding, alas. Those mobile waistbands move about too much for me.

I am not a fan of elasticised waists or cuffs for that matter. This dress therefore doesn't appeal to me. Regardless of my personal tastes, the Queen looks lovely. The fashion flashbacks was very interesting, some really lovely ensembles, 2015, 2018 and 2019 stand out to me.

While the colours and print are pretty, I don't really care for this dress. It seems limp and the elastic waist detracts from the look. I do find the shoes to be very interesting. The block heel and the dusty pink patent make them rather unique.
