Queen Letizia of Spain and King Felipe VI of Spain deliver the XXXVI Edition of the 'Francisco Cerecero' Journalism Award

Here are some photos of Queen Letizia of Spain late last week. I just like to check on the Spanish queen every now and then because I enjoy her style and I friggin’ loved her dress here. Letizia and King Felipe attended an awards ceremony for journalism, and Letizia was a journalist before she married Felipe, so she’s still involved with media/journalism causes in Spain.

For this event. Letizia wore a black and gold Dries Van Noten dress which I LOVE. This is a spectacular dress, right? Great cut, great style, super-flattering. Various royal-watchers and style-peeps are making a big deal about this look because Letizia might have gotten a dramatic haircut? She’s been wearing her hair long all year, and now suddenly she has a bob? I don’t think it’s an actual haircut though – I think she has her long hair pinned under in that faux-bob style. Anyway, I love the gold-and-black combo. Whenever I see Letizia, I always think that she’s so sophisticated and she just *gets* how to dress in flattering, occasion-appropriate looks every single time. When will our faves? Of course, age might have something to do with it – Letizia is 47, a decade older than the British duchesses we usually discuss.

I’m also adding some pics of Letizia at the Headquarters of the General Council of the Judiciary. She wore a grey dress and I don’t have the designer ID on it. That looks like something Kate would wear, doesn’t it?
