Queen Letizia always draws admiring glances, whatever she is wearing, but she certainly managed to turn all heads earlier this week. She attended the 30th anniversary of the financial newspaper 'Expansión' and looked stunning with her choice of smart black dress, deep red lipstick and an elegant updo.
It is a well known fact that Letizia is a fan of hair-plaiting; her daughters Leonor and Sofía are often seen with their hair in intricate plaits completed by their mother.
On this occasion she opted for her own hair to be styled with two tight plaits along one side of her head which carried around the back to end in a low bun on the other side of her neck.
She enhanced the look with deep raspberry-red lipstick finished with a slick of gloss. Black eyeliner was used to outline her eyes and her eyelashes were made XXL with lashings of mascara. A smudge of smoky brown eyeshadow across her eyelids finished the sultry look.
The elegant image would be perfect for a romantic dinner with your partner to celebrate St Valentine's day and would be an easy look to copy.
