Princess Letizia and Prince Felipe of Spain--U.S. Ambassador to Spain Party, Beverly Hills
Last week, the Crown Prince of Spain, Felipe and Princess Letizia had an official visit to California and besides some formal day events and appearances, they also were feted in style. Of note in particular, they attended a party given by the U.S. Ambassador to Spain, James Costos. When I saw the photos from this event, I almost glossed over it...

But, what sparked my interest was when I happened upon the photos and noticed that "Wait! The U.S. Ambassador to Spain AND HIS HUSBAND" threw the party! In case you were "out of the international diplomatic loop", our country's Ambassador is gay and yes, he has a husband. Take that!

James Costos is an HBO executive and prominent figure who played major roles in raising money for President Obama’s reelection. Costos is the vice president of global licensing and retail, consumer marketing for HBO. He and his partner, designer Michael Smith, raised at least $500,000 for Obama’s reelection campaign in the 2012 cycle.
Princess Letizia's Fashion:

In case you were wondering about the fashion, and in particular Princes Letizia's...the gorgeous and very lithe Spanish Crown Princess wore a silver and black sequined top and black skinny cropped pant from Spanish design house Felipe Varela. She looked chic and very Hollywood fab!
