At a reception for overseas coronation guests last night, one look in particular caught the eye of style watchers: that of Queen Letizia of Spain, who paid tribute to British fashion and wore a slinky, lime green ruched-front dress by Victoria Beckham.
Queen Letizia isn’t the first to have worn the piece, which was first seen on Victoria Beckham’s spring/summer 2023 catwalk in Paris, modeled by Bella Hadid.
On the runway, it was styled with latex boots and matching gloves, a look replicated by Kendall Jenner earlier this year. The model wore a dress with similar knee-high boots and opera gloves, during a visit to Dubai.
Accompanying her husband, King Felipe, at the event, Queen Letizia put a more conservative spin on the dress with a bow-shaped brooch, a black clutch and matching plain, black suede courts.
“Her Majesty the Queen of Spain looks incredible wearing one of my dresses!” Beckham wrote on Instagram. The dress, which cost £850, is sold out in most places – though there are plenty of similar styles still for sale.
Pop star-turned-fashion designer Beckham launched her eponymous fashion label in 2008. Her designs have been worn by celebrities including Michelle Obama, Florence Pugh and the Princess of Wales.
