Queen Letizia of Spain Wore a Striking Red Designer Gown to Host a Gala at Her Palace
Spain's Queen Letizia once again proved her status as one of the world's most stylish royals while hosting a gala this week.
The senior royal was photographed with husband King Felipe VI at their welcome dinner for President of Colombia Gustavo Francisco Petro and his wife, Veronica Alcocer. The intimate event was held at Felipe and Letizia's Royal Palace in Madrid, Spain.
For the grand occasion, Letizia wore a striking red gown and a floral diamond tiara. The crimson red crepe dress featured a slim trumpet silhouette and boat neckline with a ruffle peplum and sleeve detail. It was especially designed for her by Carolina Herrera Creative Director Wes Gordon.
Over the gown, Letizia wore a blue sash with a diamond bow brooch, and further accessorized with diamond stud earrings and red suede platform heels with a peep toe. She opted for classic bronzy makeup and had her straight hair down.
Letizia became queen in 2014—in a historic moment, as she is the first Spanish-born queen consort since 1878 and the first Spanish queen to have been born a commoner. Since then, she has often delighted us with her poise and sophisticated fashion.
This past March, she showed off her regal take on the little black dress while attending the "Tiempo de Luz" concert at the Falla Theater in Cádiz, Spain. The midi dress included a netted detail at the top and sleek fringe that fell from her shoulders to her waist. She paired the statement piece with black Aquazzura pumps with twisted cutout embellishments on the sides, a black clutch, diamond drop earrings, and a gold ring.
On another occasion, she stepped out for a day of engagements in Madrid in a pale blue summer suit consisting of loose trousers and an oversized single-button blazer. She paired the elegant, breezy set with a silky white blouse and beige wedges with ankle straps.
