Queen Letizia steals the limelight in stunning recycled Massimo Dutti dress

Queen Letizia recycled her dress for the occasion

Megan Bull

Resuming her royal duties on Thursday, Queen Letizia of Spain headed to the AECC headquarters in Madrid, wearing the dreamiest dress from one of her favourite brands – Massimo Dutti. Looking beautiful in blue, the ever-stylish monarch recycled a floral frock for the occasion, which she previously wore in 2019 to the UNICEF Spanish Committee Awards.

Delivering a masterclass in accessorising, Letizia finished her desk-to-daywear ensemble with patent court shoes and silver jewellery. As for her hair and makeup, she wore her brunette tresses down in a sleek, straight style and opted for a natural and dewy complexion. Donning a face covering, she kept all focus on her eyes which were dusted in a pale pink shadow complete with a lick of mascara – flawless. 

Obsessed with Letizia's latest look? While her navy midi is no longer available, we've found a number of stylish and affordable alternatives from the high street.

Navy is one of the monarch's go-to colours

With autumn just around the corner, navy seems to be Letizia's colour of the moment. On Tuesday she headed to a Cooperator's Day event at the Viana Palace alongside her husband, King Felipe VI. Dressed to impress in a recycled tweed midi from Zara, Letizia's checked frock featured a bardot neckline, short sleeves, and a waist-cinching navy belt. Completing her outfit with an envelope clutch bag and matching stilettos, the mum-of-two proved that when it comes to diplomatic dressing, she's a royal fashion icon. We can't wait to see what she wears next!
