Putting on a stylish display in a recycled bodycon dress by Carolina Herrera, the royal's navy number featured long sleeves, a round neckline and a fitted waistband. Completing her ensemble with a pair of back patent stilettos and diamante hoop earrings, Letizia wrapped up warm in a coordinating fur-trimmed cape.

As for her hair and makeup, the brunette beauty rocked her signature bouncy blowdry and a dewy complexion. Dusting her eyes in a brown glittery shadow, Letizia added a touch of mascara, honey-hued blusher and a soft nude lip gloss – so gorgeous. 

Eagle-eyed fans might remember Queen Letizia's dress from previous engagements, namely during a 2020 ceremony that paid tribute to victims of COVID-19 and frontline workers, held at the Plaza de la Armería.
