Tonight, Queen Letizia and King Felipe were attending the annual “Francisco Cerecedo” Journalism awards at the Hotel Palace in Madrid. In its XXVII edition, the journalism awards are presented by the Association of European Journalists every year.
This year the award went to the writer and columnist Javier Cercas.
Upon arrival, the couple was received by the Minister of Culture and Sports, the president of the Association of European Journalists (APE) and by the general secretary of the Association of European Journalists (APE).
The Association of European Journalists (APE) was established in Brussels in 1963 with the purpose of bringing together all journalists in the need for European integration on democratic grounds and determined to defend freedom of information as an indispensable condition for the achievement of that goal.
Under those same principles, and after the agreement of the XVII International Congress of the APE held in Rome, on October 2, 1981, the Constitution Act and the Statutes of the Spanish Section of the APE were signed. On May 8, 1982, King Juan Carlos accepted the Honorary Presidency of the Spanish Section of the Association of European Journalists on behalf of the then Prince of Asturias Felipe.
The quartet of the Symphony Orchestra of Madrid was playing for the night.

Now to What Letizia Wore – This is the annual event where we see Spanish Queen testing new styles and designs. Tonight was not any exception. Queen Letizia was looking glamorous yet regal in a new label. She debuted a Belgium label Dries Van Noten tonight.
Ex-Journalist Letizia was wearing a $2065 black wool-blend Embellished Floral-Jacquard Dress from the label. Dries Van Noten’s black wool-blend dress is jacquard-knit with a gold metallic floral motif. Featuring a modern signature of the Belgian label, this style is designed with heavily padded shoulders delicately embellished with gold and silver sequins.
The fully lined sleeveless dress featured a jewel neckline, padded shoulders, pleats at the seamed waist. Another look at Queen’s look of the night. The dress is available in one size for $1652 at the Barneys. The same pattern is also available in the form of a coat at Selfridges.
Queen Letizia paired the dress with a new pair of black and golden snake-skin accessories. She was wearing black and golden Magrit sandals.
Letizia was carrying a bespoke version of Magrit’s Alice Clutch in black and golden.
The Stylish Queen of Spain brought back her €125 Almond blossom earrings from Mallorcan label Helena Nicolau that we first saw in August 2017 during Balearic Island reception.
Her Karen Hallam ring was complimenting the whole look.
A look back at her 2017 and 2018 appearances at the same event. But her tonight’s look was the winner for me. It was one of the best looks of this year.
