Queen Letizia's Dress Put a Modern Twist on a Classic Spanish Shawl
The King and Queen of Spain threw their annual Balearic Islands reception at the Royal Palace of La Almudaina in Mallorca and, boy, did Queen Letizia dress to impress. Not that we're surprised, since she clearly knows how to turn heads.
The Spanish Royal wore a fitted floral-embroidered dress with cap sleeves reportedly from Juan Duyos. The best part of the dress is that it's actually made from a manton de manila. The manton de manilas are shawls that are very prominent in the Spanish culture. She finished off her look with red pumps, a beige suede clutch from Magrit, and gold floral dangling earrings. Letizia's mother-in-law also rocked a floral dress, but instead she opted for a black maxi version. Side by side, Queen Letizia and Queen Sofia complemented each other perfectly.
