Queen Letizia of Spain has yet again wowed fashionistas with her glam quotient as she attended the opening of an exhibition at the Prado museum in Madrid. She also took a private tour of the exhibition featuring works of French neoclassical artist, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, according to the Royal Household of Spain.
The queen, who attended an audience at Madrid's Zarazuela palace on the same day, wore a bold red skirt and a blazer dress to both the events. The 43-year-old queen donned the two-piece dress designed by Felipe Varela, a favourite of Letizia. She wore one of his creations to attend the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.
Queen Letizia balanced her vibrant style statement by wearing a nude silk blouse over the red skirt and a delicate makeup highlighting red lipstick. The skirt, which fell just above the queen's knee, featured a subtle floral embellishment giving the Spanish royal an elegant makeover. The mother of two completed her ensemble with an ordinary pair of drop earrings as she flaunted her slim and toned legs in a pair of red stilettos.
Letizia's red dresses
Letizia, who became the Queen of Spain after her husband King Felipe VI ascended the throne on the abdication of his father Juan Carlos I on 19 June, 2014, is known for donning red dresses confidently to official engagements.
A former TV journalist, Queen Letizia has carried her red ensembles elegantly even during official overseas visits and is often compared to Kate Middleton for their choice of red clothes. However, much before Kate Middleton got into the spotlight marrying into the royal family, the then Princess Letizia made heads turn in a floor-length red gown at a gala performance in Stockholm in June 2010 to celebrate the wedding of Sweden's crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling. Besides, she has worn formal red skirt suits to several of her official engagements both in Spain and abroad.
