Queen Letizia proved her style savvy as she stepped out to the fifth annual Spanish Fashion Awards in Madrid today.
The Spanish royal looked chic in a red midi dress with puff sleeves and a flattered cinched-in waist. The dress appears to have been handed down from the 46-year-old’s mother-in-law, Queen Sofia. The 80-year-old Sofia wore a very similar design in the 1980s for a number of engagements.
Queen Letizia paired the scarlet number with custom Magrit pumps, opting for a Spanish designer she knows well. The suede shoe featured a pointed toe and a stiletto heels.
The former journalist wore her brunette hair down and in waves around her face. She added a bit of sparkle to her ensemble with a pair of ruby and diamond earrings.
Since becoming queen in 2014, Letizia has established herself as a champion of Spanish fashion designers — so it’s fitting that her final royal engagement of the year came at today’s Spanish Fashion Awards.
