Queen Letizia of Spain recycles bespoke Carolina Herrera dress as she attends journalism awards


Queen Letizia of Spain was the picture of elegance as she attended a journalism award ceremony in Madrid this afternoon. 

The Spanish monarch, who spent a decade working as a TV reporter before marrying King Felipe in 2004, presented the Luis Carandell Awards for Parliamentary Journalism at the Senate Palace today. 

Looking typically polished, Letizia, 49, opted for a recycled dress by Carolina Herrera, which she first debuted back in 2018, paired with killer burnt red heels and a matching clutch bag. 

The bespoke, red sheath dress features a keyhole neckline, long sleeves and a pencil silhouette which perfectly flatters the royal’s figure.

Putting safety first, Letizia donned a plain white face covering throughout the ceremony and teamed her chic look with a pair of red teardrop earrings.  

Her brown tresses were bouncy and loose around her shoulders, while for her make-up look the mother-of-two opted for a subtle smokey eye, light eyeliner and touch of bronzer. 

The royal was last spotted in the outfit as she joined her husband King Felipe and their two daughters Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia to mark the 40th anniversary of their country’s constitution in December 2018. 

Letizia was joined by President of the Senate, Ander Gil Garcia as she hosted the awards, which aim to recognise excellence in political reporting and journalism within Spain.

The royal, whose father Jesús José Ortiz Álvarez and stepmother Ana Togores are both journalists, met her husband while still a reporter and was famously asked to conduct an interview with him.  

Letizia’s media career was a lengthy one and began with a stint at Asturian daily paper, La Nueva España.

Next came a role at ABC, a popular national newspaper that enjoys the third largest circulation in Spain, before spells at EFE and Mexican publication Siglo 21, which is based in Guadelajara.

Back in Spain a year later, she worked for the Spanish version of Bloomberg, a news channel and agency specialising in economics, before moving to CNN+.

By the time she met her husband-to-be, Letizia was working for popular TV channel 24 Horas, where she anchored the popular Telediario 2 evening news bulletin.

Perhaps as a result of her reporting background, Letizia is one of the most enthusiastically pro-newspaper royals in Europe and regularly turns out for journalist charities and awards ceremonies. 

By contrast, Prince Philip is notoriously mistrustful of the media and once quipped to the matron of a Caribbean hospital he was visiting: ‘You have mosquitoes. I have the Press!’
