Norma Ruiz In Donna Karan – José María Forqué Film Awards

Norma Ruiz In Donna Karan - José María Forqué Film Awards

Norma Ruiz joined Juana Acosta on the red carpet for the José María Forqué Film Awards held at the Palacio de Congresos in Madrid, Spain on Monday (January 13).

Wearing brown, one of the trickiest colours to pull off on the red carpet, the actress wore a Donna Karan Fall 2013 long-sleeved jersey-leather-and-velvet collage gown.

While I love the complementary Roger Vivier clutch, brown just never works for me on the red carpet. The only person who got a pass was Naya Rivera, who also wore a Donna Karan dress from the same collection.

Had this been a rich plum or lavender colour, I would’ve adored this look.

    There is something about the fabric, especially the leather trim, as as well as the brown colour of the dress which lacks the elegance necessary for formal wear.

    I actually really like this look. Would I have preferred it in a gorgeous color? Yes. But I still like it, I do wish she had pulled her hair back, though, as on the runway. The model looks fierce with that sleek pony.

    Props to Donna Karan for this design. Love the shapes, textures and softly edge-y silhouette. Mixed feelings about the color; looks great on the runaway but not so much on the rc. Sleeker hair might’ve helped too.

    I LOVE everything but i would prefer a smaller bag.

    I wish she pulled her hair back. I like the dress on her.

    The fit is the only bit that I do not prefer on the runway.

    The thing is….It’s too dark that dress, but i kinda like it

    She looks amazing IMO, I love the clutch.

    She wears it well, but it is an ugly dress in my opinion. I like brown, but it isn’t beautiful here–maybe in a knee length version.

    The dress is not working for me.

    I really like it. It’s very flattering she looks great on it even if it’s a sad colour

    I actually think this is pretty much flawless.

    The dress is better on her than on the runway but the color is not good and the clutch is too big.
