There's nothing more timeless than a black slip dress. Simple in design, yet effortlessly elegant, the minimal black slip is the ultimate fashion weapon for any occasion, as proven by Queen Letizia of Spain on Sunday evening.
The 49-year-old royal enchanted onlookers as she sashayed in a satin slip dress from It-girl brand & Other Stories at the closing ceremony of the Atlantida Mallorca Film Fest. Letizia stepped out at the La Misericordia Cultural Center in Palma de Mallorca wearing the £85 number, stunning royal fans in the surprisingly affordable high street garment.
WATCH: What does Queen Letizia keep in her handbag?
Complete with a sporty racer back, concealed zip and figure-flattering midi length, Queen Letizia adopted the classic 90s silhouette by slipping on a pair of embellished flat sandals.
In keeping with her high-street ensemble, the royal reached for her favourite beaded clutch from Mango. A vision of beauty, the Spanish Queen let her raven mane fall past her shoulders in a bouncy blowdry, rocking her go-to makeup combo.

Teaming a brown smokey eyeshadow with a dash of mascara, honey-hued blusher and a subtle nude lip, Letizia practically glowed as she joined onlookers to watch the ceremony.
Royal fans were enchanted with Letizia's effortlessly chic ensemble, rushing to social media to pen their thoughts on her modish monochrome array. "Perfect look! She looks fantastic!!" gushed one fan, as another agreed: "So simple, yet so elegant."
"Everything about this look is difficult to wear successfully, and yet she does!!" added a third fan. Sadly, the royal's exact dress has swiftly sold out on & Other Stories, but there are several similar slip dresses available for those who wish to emulate Queen Letizia's unrivalled sophistication.
