Princess Letizia has been spotted visiting her favourite designer Felipe Varela's studio just days ahead of her husband Prince Felipe's coronation. She was thought to be finalizing the details of her coronation dress with the designer in his workshop. It's no surprise the Spanish royal is going to great lengths to make sure her dress is perfect – the eyes of the world will be on her as her husband becomes king of Spain.


Princess Letizia often turns to the designer for special occasions

Fashion fans expected the beautiful brunette to turn to Felipe Varela — she has recruited the designer to create many dresses for special occasions over the years. Earlier this month, Letizia wore his stunning black gown for a dinner in honour of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto at the Royal Palace. The dress featured a sheer lace overlay on the neckline and intricate black embellishment.

The pair have collaborated on many dresses

At the inauguration of King Willem Alexander of the Netherlands, Letizia wore his pale blue tiered gown adorned with thousands of tiny crystals. Felipe also created the lavender satin printed ballgown that Letizia wore to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's pre-wedding dinner in 2011. The most notable dress that he has designed for the future queen of Spain, however, has to be the scarlet strapless satin gown with a ruched bodice and full flower-adorned skirt that she wore to a gala performance in 2010.
