Queen Letizia of Spain has “broken the norm”. And when the Spanish fashion icon goes a bit beyond the rules, it makes for a memorable look. King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain presided over the 21st In Memoriam concert. The annual event is held in memory of the victims of terrorism. Each year, the sovereigns wear a black outfit, recalls Histoires Royales in its article of March 8, 2023. Letizia of Spain, 50, dared this year to wear a discolored dress with a huge slit on the side.

Queen Letizia would have deliberately “broken the norm”, explains Histoires Royales, quoting the daily El Español. The goal is to ensure optimal visibility given that the In Memoriam concert is of great importance. The trick is played because the faded black or dark gray dress of Leonor and Sofia’s mother is making a lot of noise. Quoted by Histoires Royales, the Spanish media Vanitatis qualifies the dress worn by the wife of Felipe VI as being “the most surprising piece of his wardrobe”. A well-stocked wardrobe that would contain more than 500 dresses, according to the same Spanish media.

The dress of Queen Letizia of Spain is surprising thanks to its discolorations which make it a unique piece. It is a dress from the Catalan brand Cortana, precisely the Cuca model. Histoires Royales specifies that the dress costs 835 euros. According to Vanity Fair, it is a dress made of stretch silk fabric. The drape of the dress, very remarkable on the front, as well as the large slit on the left side of the skirt make it a chic and original dress. In terms of accessories, Queen Letizia has not done in half measures either. Indeed, the Queen of Spain opted for black Prada pumps and a black clutch with gold borders Nina Ricci.
