You'd Never Know Queen Letizia of Spain's ASOS Dress Was $119

Queen Letizia of Spain can't pass up a good budget buy, and for that, she's a royal after our own hearts. From her Zara top to all her Steve Madden shoes, the queen has proved over and over that she has a knack for cherrypicking affordable pieces and making them look like, well, royalty. Well, she's up to her old tricks again, this time wearing a wallet-friendly dress we would never have guessed she actually found from ASOS.

While welcoming the China's first lady, Peng Liyuan, to the Royal Palace in Madrid, the Spanish queen opted for a very royal ASOS buy: the Midi Dress With Pretty Floral and Bird Embroidery ($119). From the soft blush color to the classic silhouette, the piece fits right in with the rest of her polished wardrobe. As she's known to do with other items (remember this affordable skirt?), she made the dress sell out within a matter of hours. While you may not be able to buy her exact dress anymore, though, you can still take notes on how she styled the rest of her chic ensemble.
