NIEVES ALVAREZ In FAUSTO PUGLISI

Last Saturday, Solo Moda host, Nieves Alvarez, showed off her amazingly toned body in two very revealing dresses with side-cutouts from Fausto Puglisi’s Spring 2013 collection.

Nieves paired the baby-blue version with coral Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps. While Louboutin’s Pigalle pumps usually add sexiness and edge to almost any outfit, here the bright hue felt a tad tacky in combination with the overtly sexy dress.

Silver metallic Jimmy Choo sandals completed the pastel-pink number, resulting in a more polished and feminine combination, but I can’t say I’m a fan of either look.

Nieves accessorized both dresses with jewels by Yanes.

NIEVES ALVAREZ In Stella McCartney

Nieves redeemed herself on Sunday thanks to three different numbers from Stella McCartney.

First up, a yellow fringe dress from the designer’s Resort 2013 collection, which she paired with contrasting Jimmy Choo ankle-strapped sandals and a green statement bracelet from Yanes. You may remember that we’ve seen this look on La La Anthony, Kylie Minogue and Qin Lan.

The second look featured a blue brocade shift with a deep plunge from the Fall 2012 collection, styled with embellished strappy Jimmy Choo sandals and back-combed hair. Since the cut of this dress is more on the minimal side, it would have looked fresher and more contemporary paired with a sleeker hairdo and futuristic booties.

Nieves’ final Stella McCartney look was a black fringe dress from the designer’s Resort 2013 collection. Bright-green sandals from Gianvito Rossi added a pop of colour to the ensemble. While both the dress and shoes are great fashion pieces on their own, together the result is rather unfortunate as the lime-green sandals detracted from the sophistication of this beautifully fringed dress.

Again, Nieves completed her outfits with jewels from Yanes.

This look has also been worn by Anne Hathaway and Salma Hayek.
