King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain presided over the gala dinner celebrating the 175th anniversary of the foundation of Círculo del Liceo in Barcelona. For a change, today, I will first talk about the Style of the day. The event was much anticipated and we were all waiting to see what the stylish Queen of Spain will bring to the front.
And the gorgeous 50 years old Spanish Queen did not disappoint and brought one of her iconic looks back for the Círculo del Liceo de Barcelona. Queen Letizia was wearing her sapphire blue Carolina Herrera gown that she first wore in 2017 during the UK State visit.
The gown features an asymmetrical off-shoulder neckline, sleeveless shirred bodice, bias-cut skirt and concealed zipper. Honestly saying, I was waiting for this gown to make another appearance for the last 5 years.
In 2017, Queen Letizia paired the gown with her Mellerio Floral tiara and Joyas de Pasar diamond bracelets. Queen carried Felipe Varela’s satin blue clutch in her hand. Queen finished her outfit with the Order of Carlos III sash that was pinned diamond Fleur de Lys brooch. The highlight of the outfit was spectacular long earrings of diamonds and sapphires.
Today, Letizia paired the outfit with her Mother-in-law Queen Sofia’s diamond and Sapphire earrings that we recently saw during the German state visit
and her delicate diamond and oval sapphire bracelet that she first wore in 2019 at the 5th anniversary of Felipe’s proclamation as King of Spain.
The Queen was wearing her Jimmy Choo Rosie 120 Gold Metallic Nappa Platform Sandals that she first wore last month during the German state banquet.
and carried a Magrit Alice clutch in gold tone.
Her Karen Hallam ring was not missing either.
And a look at Letizia’s beautiful brunette hair.
A video of the day. Now something about the event.
The Círculo del Liceo is a private, English-style club with a unique artistic heritage that has nearly a thousand members and offers a series of elegant lounges, a conference room, a library, a restaurant and many other services in an emblematic building of the city of Barcelona that it shares with the Gran Teatre del Liceu. The club has become a staple representation of Spanish culture and heritage.
The Círculo del Liceo was Inaugurated in 1847. Every year numerous acts, recitals, concerts, conferences, presentations, award ceremonies, parties and tributes are held in which both members and personalities representing Barcelona and other parts of Spain participate.
Due to its proximity to the Gran Teatre del Liceu –adjacent buildings– and its common origins, among its partners are the majority of subscribers who owned the Barcelona Coliseum until 1995, so they regularly attend the operas and concerts of the lyrical space Barcelona.
The club has an impressive collection of artistic works, especially paintings and sculptures on display which are unparalleled in the city due to their importance and excellent state of conservation. In 2010, for example, a set of engravings by Antoni Tàpies dedicated to Richard Wagner was incorporated to redecorate the old card room on the second floor.
After the introductions and group photographs, King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain presented the Gold Medals of the Círculo del Liceo to Salvador Alemany, on behalf of the Gran Teatro del Liceo, and its former presidents, Messrs. The evening concluded with a recital performed by the pianist Albert Guinovart and the soprano Ermonela Jaho, and the screening of the documentary, “Círculo del Liceo”.
Next, we will see Queen Letizia at the Award ceremony of the XXXV edition of the “Macael Awards” on Thursday next week.
