Blanca Suarez In Zuhair Murad – Fotogramas Awards

Blanca Suarez In Zuhair Murad - Fotogramas Awards

Blanca Suarez attended the Fotogramas Awards ceremony held at Joy Eslava on Monday (March 2) in Madrid, Spain.

The actress wore a Zuhair Murad black sheer gown featuring an explosion of colourful floral embroidery that put a spring into this elegant gown’s step.

I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t think this dress was Valentino at first as it possesses the dainty ladylike qualities you don’t always associate with Zuhair Murad, who usually comes to mind upon sight of an overtly sexy gown that the likes of Alessandra Ambrosio adore.

Confidently displaying an air of charisma and grace, this look was one of my favourites from this event, not only for the colours and Blanca’s poise but also for her styling.

I’m sure you’ll agree this look is much improved over her Film Independent Spirit Awards effort.

Chanel’s Spring 2015 ‘3 Girls, 3 Bags’ Campaign

Following the announcement back in January, Chanel’s Spring 2015 handbag campaign, ‘3 Girls, 3 Bags’, has finally been released.

The black-and-white campaign, which was photographed by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, features American actress Kristen Stewart, French actress Vanessa Paradis and model Alice Dellal, all of whom have posed for Chanel in the past.

Vanessa Paradis posed naked for Karl wearing only a Chanel pearl necklace and the new ‘Girl’ Chanel handbag inspired by the emblematic jacket of the house, which will no doubt become an instant classic.

Chanel’s two iconic handbags are represented by two of its newest ambassadors, Alice Dellal and Kristen Stewart.

Alice continues to be the face of the ‘Boy’ bag, which is particularly suited to her tougher, edgy, androgynous style, while Kristen lends her face to one of the French label’s enduring classics, the quilted ‘11.12’ handbag, looking rather smart yet older than her tender years in this campaign.

Juana Acosta In Oscar de la Renta – Gala Dinner for The Colombian President

Juana Acosta In Oscar de la Renta - Gala Dinner for The Colombian President

Juana Acosta attended a gala dinner held at the Royal Palace on March 2, 2015, in Madrid, Spain, for the Colombian president, Juan Manuel Santos, which would have been a huge honour for the Colombian actress.

She was certainly dressed for the occasion, wearing an Oscar de la Renta black Resort 2015 gown designed be worn to a gala.

Breathtaking beauty in its own right, the silver embroidery only serves to augment the already grandiose design, which needed little else, yet she styled the look with glossy waves and a glitter clutch.

A definite contender for BDOTW, wouldn’t you agree?

Julianne Hough In Reed Krakoff & Temperley London – SiriusXM Studios & AOL Studios

Julianne Hough In Temperley London - SiriusXM Studios & AOL Studios

Sibling performers Derek and Julianne Hough were out in New York City on Monday (March 2) to promote their ‘Move Live on Tour’, where they dance and sing before a live audience.

SiriusXM Studios: Julianne’s first stop was SiriusXM studios were she donned a luxe nude Reed Krakoff look featuring a perforated skirt that gave a slight contemporary edge to this feminine look while providing a delicate play on and welcome alternative to the overused sheer trend. I absolutely love her Kurt Geiger ‘Bond’ dual-print pumps, mostly because I own the exact same pair but also because nude head to toe with this look would’ve been too monotonous.

AOL Studios: The second look of the day had a more mannish flourish. The dancer/actress wore a black and white check Temperley London Spring 2015 look featuring culottes, which continue to be popular two seasons on. I love that she styled the look with a coordinating waistcoat, amping up the contemporary nature of this look, but I am not a fan of the nude Jerome C. Rousseau ‘Mill’s sandals on this occasion. They do nothing to enhance the look. She would’ve fared better with black ‘Nudists’.

Goya Toledo In Dolce & Gabbana – Fotogramas Awards

Goya Toledo In Dolce & Gabbana - Fotogramas Awards

Goya Toledo attended the Fotogramas Awards ceremony held at Joy Eslava on Monday (March 2) in Madrid, Spain.

Known for her love of all things Elie Saab, the actress opted for a different designer on this rare occasion, wearing Dolce & Gabbana.

Her ruched strapless dress, lavishly decorated with the brand’s signature carnations – a favourite of Domenico Dolce’s mother – had plenty of flamenco spirit infused by the ruffles enlivening the skirt.

A gold choker would’ve been my choice to take this down a more directional route, but Goya’s cuff and opulent gold earrings serve this exotic piece just as well.
