Nieves Alvarez In Emilio Pucci – ‘Yo Dona’ International Awards 2013

Nieves Alvarez In Emilio Pucci - 'Yo Dona' International Awards 2013

The one person I was excited to see at the ‘Yo Dona’ International Awards 2013 held at Finca La Munoza in Madrid, Spain on Thursday was Nieves Alvarez.

Her Emilio Pucci Spring 2013 gown didn’t quite have the drama of her Stephane Rolland or Ralph & Russo Couture gowns, but I love that her white gold dragon-embroidered gown was perfect for the summer season.

The gold Christian Louboutin accessories and Carrera Y Carrea jewels are perfect for her gown, however, I find the red lips and nails a tad harsh for this white-and-gold look.

You may remember that Poppy Delevingne wore this same Pucci gown in black earlier this year.


You can buy Nieves’ Pucci dress in black from and Luisa via Roma.

    I like the gown but I think it doesn’t flatter her shape. The nails and lip are harsh too. It’s not bad but not stellar.

    I just plain don’t like this dress.

    She is not rocking this.

    I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt that the white background just doesn’t do it justice and also take into account that long sleeves usually don’t work for me. But the whole ensemble with hair and make up ages her for me.

      I hated the hair and make up because she looks very aged indeed. AND the shoes are also not good, so my disliking of the dress is really the smallest problem here.

    So much drama i love it !

    I don’t like this gown, neither on Poppy nor on Nieves. The sheer sides are so tacky. On the plus side, Nieves’ styling, except for the hair, is amazing.

    I think she looks amazing. The red nails and lipstick add a little danger to a rather ladylike look.

    I actually much preferred this particular look on Poppy. I think the unfortunate think with Nieves, is that she has set the bar SO high, that it is actually difficult to compete with her own RC moments. High class problems, right??

      ahaha exactly! She can do so much better!

    I love it, so crisp and fresher for the season in white. The gold dragon detail adds an exotic touch and keeps it interesting and original, her gold accessories are perfect, the red lips/nails do feel a tad harsh and the hairstyle feels a bit matronly for the look, but this can be overlooked.
