Letizia dazzles in Denmark with a recycled Varela dress and her most impressive tiara

Christiansborg Palace dressed up this Monday to host the State Dinner offered by Margaret of Denmark to his illustrious guests, reyes Felipe VI y Letizia. The Spanish queen has captured all eyes with one of her most dazzling looks since her husband took up the baton from Don Juan Carlos and has also recovered Doña Sofía’s sapphires, a nod to her predecessor .

Once again, Mrs. Letizia has trusted Felipe Varela for the occasion and has recycled one of her gala dresses. It is the third time that she has worn it: she premiered it in Peru (2015) and she recovered it in Japan (2017). It is a princess design, with a rounded neckline and wide straps full of thread and crystal leaf embroidery in different shades of navy.

She has complemented it with sapphire and diamond earrings from the royal jeweler (which Doña Sofía has worn on several occasions) in addition to the twin Cartier bracelets. However, all eyes have been focused on the Fleur de Lis tiara, one of the most impressive jewels of the Royal House and one of the queen’s favorites for these occasions. It was created in 1906 by the Spanish firm Ansorena and is made of platinum and diamonds with hinges forming plant motifs such as the flower of the Bourbon dynasty that gives it its name.

Both Don Felipe and Doña Letizia wore the sky blue bands of the Order of the Elephant, awarded by Queen Margaret II, who presented them to them this afternoon in Amalienborg, after the official reception.
