The centre has been described as a "benchmark for contemporary art that will house the 3,000 works that make up the collection". Construction of the building has been widely praised and it is the Spanish nominee in the "Mies van der Rohe 2021" European Architecture Awards.

The King and Queen met artists, viewed current exhibits and spoke to those who have been working on the project since its inception.

Queen Letizia wore a classic off-white tweed Felipe Varela dress she's had for several years.

Letizia wearing the dress in 2017 for the 29th 'Rey Jaime I' awards at Lonja de los Mercaderes. There's a very Chanel look to the design and silhouette.

Queen Letizia's Style notes she wore her Manolo Blahnik BB snakeskin embossed pumps.

And a past season Nina Ricci handbag.


  1. This skin-tight tweed from Felipe Varela continues to look fantastic on Letizia, I don't think anyone else can make this woven fabric look so svelte. It's so beautifully pointed up by the row of buttons, slim black belt, snakeskin pumps and matching bag. Even the patch pockets look figure-hugging. Chic and minimal,it seems very on point for a contemporary art exhibition

  2. Nice look on Letizia.

  3. I think this is one of her most iconic looks/silohettes (together with introducing pant suits to the spanish monarchy). It's a fantastic piece- especially because it is extremly timeless. And she looks stunning in it.
