We could do a whole series on royal women and their Little Black Dresses (LBDs), but Queen Letizia is the Queen among Queens in that category. In her case, most of the LBDs come with a sartorial twist. Let’s see how they work for her.
Recently, she donned a Hugo Boss cocktail dress with hand crafted macrame detailing to attend a climate change dinner. I find it fascinating that such detailing pings sophisticated and not tatty to me.
For her 44th birthday in 2016, on a trip to the opera, she wore this sleek Felipe Varela number, which included a cut out back and lace hem.
In 2018, for a cocktail reception hosted by the President of Portugal, she wore this Herrera silk mikado crop top and skirt, with black feather details. The ensemble was repeat from 2016.
For the 2016 meeting with the Israeli first couple, Leti exhibited both excellent manners to her guests and impeccable style in this liquid Herrera with sequin detailing.
For an April 2017 visit to Japan, in a nod to her hosts, she wore a black velvet set with cherry blossom accents. It is a bespoke version from the Armani Prive Fall 2011 collection.
