Queen Letizia of Spain Proves She Has Serious Style and Beauty Skills: Check Out Her Faux Bob

06/27/2014 at 04:07 PM ET

If Duchess Catherine is the only royal on your style radar (and Prince George, of course, for obvious reasons), it’s time to broaden your “borders.” Queen Letizia of Spain has been making her mark on the scene with a string of fashion-forward looks. And she just pulled a bold move in the beauty department — one that only true style pros can pull off: the faux bob.

The Queen of Spain made us do a double-take with her shorter style, but after further photo research it doesn’t look like an actual haircut. Instead, she pinned her mid-length strands under, a look we’ve seen before on stars including Claire Danes and Carrie Underwood. She teamed her mod hair moment with a black embellished dress and single drop earrings at the Principe de Girona Foundation Awards in Girona, Spain, Friday.

In addition to the faux bob, Queen Letizia is also partial to another advanced style maneuver:faux lashes. “Recently her fake eyelashes have gotten a lot of attention,” S Moda magazine editor Empar Prieto tells PEOPLE, adding that the Queen’s style choices have been making headlines in Spain for some time. “Letizia is very influential in the world of fashion in Spain by popularizing certain tendencies or fashions. It’s true that whatever she puts on and is photographed in gets sold out.” (Sound familiar?)

For more on the new reigning queen of royally chic style, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on stands everywhere now. And tell us: What do you think of Letizia’s faux bob? Should Kate try one next?

Nice to see PEOPLE diversify their site with different royals for a chance.

at this point anyone has better style than Kates grandma style. Kates competing with the queen in the fashion world and no one else.

OMG! She tucked her hair under, stop the press, this is news ???? WTF?

Glad to see other royal than boring Kate!

She was a journalist before she met her Prince.

Love Letizia but is this newsworthy because of a dated hairstyle that was popular a few years ago or because their is a Letizia name dropping quota that must be met? SMH!

Val on

Happy to see there is another royal to report not just Kate.
