On Monday, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia presided over the ceremony commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) at their headquarters in Madrid.
Queen Letizia opted for a chic professional look, debuting a Mango floral print blouse and a red blazer reportedly by the same label (this information have been unverified).
The top is from the current Mango Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. The white flowy blouse has a black and red floral print and features a round neck, keyhole detail at back and short sleeves. It is currently available for US$59.99 from Mango online and Amazon.
Many bloggers have stated the blazer is also by Mango but that always seemed unlikely to me because I have never found a stock photo from their collection. The silhouette and tailoring of the jacket is reminiscent of Felipe Varela and the style is very similar to other 3-button blazers she has from the Spanish designer. Below is an example of jackets from Felipe Varela's current collection which show a similar silhouette to Letizia's red blazer. I suspect it is a bespoke piece.
Letizia also premiered new shoes, wearing Carolina Herrera black patent and suede pumps from the Fall-Winter 2014 collection.
She coordinated the outfit with her Tissa Fontaneda red nappa bubble 'Flavia' clutch which she debuted last month at a Red Cross fundraiser.
Today we saw the return of her ruby drop earrings.
The next engagement for Queen Letizia will be on Thursday 27th November, where she will travel to Palma de Mallorca to preside over the opening of the XVII National Conference on Volunteering held at the University of the Balearic Islands.
