Infanta Margarita in a White and Silver Dress or Infanta Margarita in a White Dress is a 1656 painting by Diego Velázquez, one of his five portraits of Margaret Theresa of Spain.

It is one of the painter's last works – Martin Warnke argues that it was painted slightly after Las Meninas, which shows Margaret Theresa in a similar white dress.[1] It was one of the paintings sent to Vienna for Leopold I, Margarita's future husband and future Holy Roman Emperor. It thus now hangs in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.
