Queen Letizia is fast becoming one of the most prolific royal style icons of our time. And the Spanish monarch only did herself favours in the sartorial stakes when she attended the XXV Fedepe Awards ceremony in a beautiful white sleeveless dress on Tuesday (26 July).
The former journalist oozed elegance in the white floral embroidered design by Venezuelan fashion designer Carolina Herrera which featured a split collar and skater-style skirt.
The ivory A-line number cinched in at the waist which showcased the Spanish queen's famously svelte figure. Herrera, known for "exceptional personal style", has dressed high-profile women and First Ladies from Jacqueline Onassis to Michelle Obama for decades.
Letizia paired the simple dress with snakeskin stilettos by favoured shoe designer Magrit and a cream clutch bag from Malababa, which featured an agate mineral detail. The mother-of-two wore her hair in a curly style with drop floral earrings as the finishing touches.
And it was a fitting style choice for the Fedepe Awards at Retiro Park in Madrid – a ceremony which celebrates female entrepreneurs – as the temperature in the capital reached a sweltering 37 °C.
Seemingly taking fashion a little less seriously than her counterparts yet again, Letizia, 43, was also not afraid to showcase her arms and legs in the flirty design as she attended the daytime affair without her husband of 12 years, King Felipe VI.
The pair – who married in an idyllic ceremony in a Madrid cathedral in 2004 – have two daughters together, Leonor, Princess of Asturias and Infanta Sofía. They often conduct their royal duties individually, and Letizia has been spotted on her own on public appearances several times over the past few weeks.
She most recently attended the opening of the International Music School summer courses in Oviedo and hosted the National Fashion Awards in a recycled floral dress from Zara. The Spanish monarch made a congratulatory speech during the latter event after the recipients received their awards for their achievements in the fashion industry.
