Queen Letizia of Spain presented the SM Children and Young people Literature Awards ‘El Barco De Vapor’ and ‘Gran Angular’ at the Community of Madrid’s Headquarter in Madrid.
Since 1978, SM has maintained its commitment to culture and its commitment to children’s and young people’s literature through the SM Barco de Vapor and Gran Angular Awards, which are held in 9 of the 10 countries in which the publisher is present (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Spain, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic). They are joined by the International Fair of Bologna Illustration Award – SM Foundation, the Ibero-American Illustration Catalog, and the Ibero-American SM Award for Children’s and Young People’s Literature.
The objective of these Awards is to return to society, through the work of the SM Foundation, the benefits of the publishing group; to support authors and illustrators, and to promote the creation of a literature for children and young people that fosters a taste for reading and transmits, with literary quality, human, social, cultural or religious values that help to build a dignified world.
These awards, endowed with more than 200,000 euros in total, are among the most prestigious in the world in the field of Children’s Literature and Juvenile.
This year’s award winners include “The letter writers”, by Beatriz Osés, and “Blanco de tigre”, by Andrés Guerrero, winners of the SM Awards The Steam Boat and Wide Angle 2019. Letizia presented the awards to the winner.
Speaking at the event Letizia stressed that on this occasion “two stories of brave women are rewarded today”, “two women, Duna and Iria, who are not afraid, who decide to take their path and take responsibility for their choice, with criteria and maturity.”
For the day, Queen Letizia chose a very professional look. Queen Letizia Style Blog noted on Twitter that Letizia chose Boss Juxtiny Regular-fit blazer with satin collar and lapels Blazer.
A £399.00 tuxedo-inspired blazer by BOSS Womenswear, cut to a straight silhouette. Crafted in an Italian-made fabric containing wool for softness and stretch for wearing comfort, this single-breasted design is detailed with satin at the peak lapels and collar. This jacket is finished with fabric-covered buttons at the centre front and cuffs and can be combined with the matching trousers to create a chic evening ensemble.
Underneath the blazer, Letizia was wearing a white top with lace detailing at the neckline that we last saw during her Peru visit in November 2018.
Another new element of her look today was a black silk trouser that is still unidentified.
Letizia paired the outfit with her Manolo Blahnik Gotrianc Slingbacks 105 Pumps that she first wore in March this year at Memorial Concert.
Queen was carrying her Bottega Veneta Knot satin and snakeskin clutch. And finished her look with linked circle earrings.
