After farewell with honors at the Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport, recently landed in Stockholm, Their Majesties attended their first engagement of the State trip, a reception at the Embassy of Spain where, as expected, the outfit chosen by the Queen it was one of the most anticipated details of the night.
As a good follower of trends, she opted to make a nod to Nordic style with a ‘total white look’ of which certain details drew attention. The style consisted of a white midi dress, with long sleeves and an asymmetrical hem that presented a frayed finish on both, as well as a small sash that further refined her silhouette. The garment had a round neckline with a central teardrop and long sleeves, a simple yet elegant cut that invited you to wear it with hardly any accessories so as not to detract from its prominence.
It is not the first time that it has been seen with this design, as it was worn for the first time in February and December 2020. It is striking that normally on his state visits he usually opts for garments from renowned designers and in this case the origin of the dress is a mystery.
As he did the previous times, he chose to combine it with the same accessories. A snakeskin wallet in the shape of an envelope Magrit which included a row of studs and salons of the same tone, also from the same firm. A very successful option since the grayish and greenish finishes break with the pristine white of the dress and give it a more modern touch.
Another point that has not gone unnoticed has been the choice of crystal stockings which, with the flashes of the cameras, glowed slightly. A detail criticized by the ‘insiders’ who considered that it was not necessary to add them, although the low Swedish temperatures were probably responsible for this decision.
As for the jewels, he has found the right point for the style to look elegant without too much fanfare thanks to some earrings belonging to the royal jeweler composed of a row of diamonds ending in a large pearl, which he combined with his ring of Karen Hallam. The makeup has been very subtle and natural, with smoky eyes in ocher tones and the loose hair that has been blown dry.
Although it has been a very wise choice to start your stay, the one you choose for tonight’s gala dinner will be the real star.
