On Friday evening, Queen Letizia joined King Felipe and Queen Sofia for the delivery of Princess of Asturias awards 2017 at Campoamor Theater in Oviedo. They delivered the awards on the behalf of Princess of Asturias Leonor.
The winners of the prominent Spanish awards included William Kentridge, Prince of Asturias Award for the Arts; Karen Armstrong, Princess of Asturias Award in Social Sciences; Les Luthiers, Princesa de Asturias Award for Communication and Humanities.
European Union, Princess of Asturias Award of Concord; Rainer Weiss, Kip S. Thorne, Barry C. Barish and the Scientific Collaboration LIGO, Princess of Asturias Award for Scientific and Technical Research; Men’s rugby team from New Zealand, Sports Princess Award from Asturias; Adam Zagajewski, Princess of Asturias Award for Letters, and Hispanic Society of America, Princess of Asturias Award for International Cooperation.
For one of the most formal and important evening of her schedule, Queen chose a monochrome white dress with black print on it. The dress is designed by the head designer of Spanish Queen Felipe Varela.
The white silk georgette dress embroidered in black thread and black crystal features a midi length flowy pleated chiffon skirt, mao neck, short sleeves and tight waist with details of black sequins with back zipper.
Queen accessorised her look with the black colourway. She wore black leather patent pumps from Magrit. Queen carried black satin clutch from Felipe Varela.
Letizia paired her outfit with a piece of very sleek jewellery that compliments the whole look. She wore black diamond earrings from the Swiss firm De Grisogono and on her left wrist was the Cartier white gold and diamonds bracelet inspired by the Greek columns on loan from Queen Sofia paired with the mysterious green stone ring that she has worn lately regularly.
The highlight of today’s look was the elegant chignon that finished the whole look.
