23rd Jose Maria Forque Awards

The 23rd edition of the Jose Maria Forque Awards were held on Saturday (January 13) in Zaragoza, Spain, where the dress code was quite varied among its attendees.

Goya Toledo: Wearing her favoured designer, Elie Saab, Goya relied on the intricate embroidery of the bodice to add a sense of glamour to the gown that was quite neutral in colour. Embellished accessories attempted to add a sense of sparkle to the look, but she could have done without the ribbon choker. We expect her to wear Elie Saab at the Goya Awards on February 3, so I am looking forward to what she brings to the red carpet there.

Juana Acosta: Even though we’ve seen Tilda Swinton rock this Chanel Fall 2017 jumpsuit, I didn’t mind its second showing here. Opting for a girly-chic approach, she styled the classic-cool piece with a ribbon ponytail whilst celebrating its cropped proportions that showed off her Jimmy Choo sandals.

Dafne Fernandez: I wanted to like this Fernando Claro suit, but it was missing some of the polished structure that makes these menswear-inspired looks so sleek and smart. The taupe colour was also a bit bland, especially with her shoe choice. Not even the brassy Jimmy Choo clutch could enliven it.

Dafne Fernandez In The 2nd Skin Co. – 2015 Goya Awards

Dafne Fernandez In The 2nd Skin Co- 2015 Goya Awards

As always, my heart skipped several beats upon seeing Dafne Fernandez on the red carpet for the 2015 Goya Awards held at Centro de Congresos Principe Felipe on Saturday (February 7) in Madrid, Spain.

Not one to disappoint, the Spanish beauty wore a romantic lilac hued The 2nd Skin Co. gown featuring a cluster of floral appliqués on the bodice.

Exuding sophisticated elegance she opted for neutral makeup only highlighting her eyes with a slick back do, ensuring that this masterpiece was the centre of attention.

Yes, this was also one of my favourite of the night. I was floored by both the colour and the effortless style.

The Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards

The Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards

The Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards took place at the Platea Restaurant on Monday (July 7) in Madrid, Spain. Here’s a look at five lovely ladies who caught my eye.

Dafne Fernandez: As you know I have had a long-time crush on Dafne’s style. The Spanish actress wore a gorgeous Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2014 frock with a romantic, preternaturally pretty, simple design rendered in gauzy silk georgette in a fluttering silhouette with a deep V-neck and double slits in the skirt. The look was styled with burnt-orange Roger Vivier pumps, gold jewels and a luscious red lip.

Celia Freijeiro: The actress certainly stood out in her incredibly chic Roksanda Ilincic colour-block patchwork bouclé wool dress from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection. Adding one more colour into the mix, she opted for coral peep-toes, with a black clutch rounding out her look

Natalia de Molina: I almost didn’t recognise Natalia with her new red hair and blunt bangs. Opting for a pink and black frock with a chiffon wrap-layered skirt, this look is more fun and in tune with the spirit of the magazine.

Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better…Gemma Chan, Poppy Delevingne or Dafne Fernandez?

Who Wore Burberry Prorsum Better Gemma Chan or Poppy Delevingne

Gemma Chan attended the London premiere of ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ wearing a lilac Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 lace one-shoulder dress styled with a Burberry Prorsum ‘Petal’ clutch from the same collection and Gianvito Rossi white pumps.

A few weeks later Poppy Delevingne wore the same dress to Harvey Weinstein’s pre-BAFTA dinner, adding a Jimmy Choo ‘Sweetie’ clutch and glittering gold shoes.

Dafne Fernandez made it a three-peat when she wore her dress to the ‘Fotogramas Magazine Awards’ with a Burberry clutch and metallic pumps.

Gemma wins for me, as I prefer complementary colours of her accessories. Poppy and Dafne’s metallic accessories didn’t work for me with this delicate dress.
