It is a short-sleeved midi model made in brocade patchwork and hand-embroidered in thread, glass and midnight blue, cerulean, slate and nude metal. She premiered it in 2018 to walk the Campoamor Theater carpet at the Princess of Asturias Awards and we saw her with him again three years later, in 2021, during the delivery of the 70th edition of the Planeta Awards in Barcelona.




On this occasion, she has combined it with a clutch (by Varela) and black satin pumps (by Prada) with earrings from the Swiss firm De Grisogono, made with pavé-cut black diamonds, perfect for the look. In addition, his inseparable ring from Karen Hallam.




The Association of European Journalists announces the Francisco Cerecedo Journalism Award every year under the patronage of BBVA. It is endowed with 24,000 euros and a medal designed by the sculptor Julio López Hernández. The winner on this occasion is Pilar Bonet, a correspondent in Austria, Russia and Germany, who has covered such important milestones as the fall of the Berlin Wall. In addition to the gala, the guests enjoy a subsequent dinner in which the queen develops like a fish in water with those who for years were teachers and companions, such as Ángeles Blanco or Fernando Ónega, father of Sonsoles, one of the best friends of Doña Letizia.
