Queen Letizia and Queen Maxima paint the town red in head-to-toe scarlet looks

The stylish royals stepped out in red outfits within 24-hours of each other

 Queen Letizia  and  Queen Maxima  had us seeing red—literally—this week. The stylish royals turned heads stepping out in scarlet ensembles within 24-hours of each other.  King Felipe  of Spain’s wife made a statement donning a crimson power suit on Thursday in Madrid. Letizia recycled her Roberto Torretta suit for the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Fundación Residencia de Estudiantes. The royal first debuted the two-piece suit in 2018.

The mom of two completed her resplendent red look on Oct. 8 with matching accessories—LODI pumps and a clutch—as well as a disposable surgical mask. Letizia let her hair down straight for the meeting.

One day prior to Letizia’s monochrome outfit, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands painted the town red. The Dutch royal attended the start of the Music Training Agreement on Wednesday evening in Utrecht.

Maxima, who is the honorary president of “More music in the classroom” (Méér Muziek in de Klas), made a colorful splash wearing an embroidered claret double-face wool-cashmere coat from Oscar de la Renta. King Willem-Alexander’s wife wore the outerwear over a $299 open back dress from one of Letizia’s favorite brands, Massimo Dutti. The limited edition flared design featured a high neck and back vent. Like the Spanish Queen, Maxima accessorized her outfit with red shoes and a matching purse—Gianvito Rossi boots and Delvaux handbag—in addition to a black face mask, while sweeping her golden tresses up into a chic ponytail.

Guess it’s true, stylish minds think alike!
