Spain's New Queen Letizia Stuns In Ivory As King Felipe VI Takes Over

Posted: Updated:

How does one select an outfit to wear on the day she becomes queen? For the royal formerly known as Princess Letizia, a formal gown paired with a glittery tiara was not in the cards.

In an obvious nod to Spain's recovering economy, Queen Letizia looked every inch an elegant consort in an understated ivory dress with matching coat as her husband, Felipe VI, was proclaimed the new King of Spain on Thursday.

The ensemble was designed by Queen Letizia's favorite Madrid designer, Felipe Varela. Perhaps she chose the creamy color to symbolize a clean slate after scandals dogged the final years of the reign of her father-in-law, King Juan Carlos, who abdicated the throne earlier this month.

What we love: the trim cut of the coat, the nude accessories, simple makeup and the delicate detailing along the neckline that just so happens to match the colors of the Spanish flag.



Still, the best accessory of the day just might be little Infanta Sofia's dragonfly headband. We have no doubt she's a future royal style star in the making!
