I love to bringing you red carpet stylish events from around the world, and this time we head to Madrid for the 2009 Telva Magazine Fashion Awards where Angel Schlesser was awarded “Best National Designer” and Diane Von Furstenberg was awarded “Best International Designer”.
Angel dressed many of the beautiful women at this event, whilst presenting himself in a very smart black suit.
Diane looked outstanding wearing a liquid gold gown with an embellished neckline.
Carolina Adriana Herrera and Genoveva Casanova both glammed up in Carolina Herrera gowns.
Carolina wore a stand out purple gown from the recent Spring 2010 presentation, with a central split and a criss cross detail going across the bodice.
Genoveva wore a grey Fall 2009, which was never my favourite gown from this collection but it looks really good on her.
A red carpet event is not a red carpet event without an Elie Saab gown.
Actress Paula Echevarria was breath-taking wearing a purple gown with a satin sash wrapped around the dress into a bow detail which rested on her shoulder.
Her orange jeweled clutch is by Dior.
I also loved Daphne Fernandez’ Hannibal Laguna Fall 2009 gown as it’s so dramatic, with the stunning embroidery details and the mermaid hem.
Daphne and the model are working the hell out of this exquisite gown. Kudos to both of them.
This is BDOTW worthy too.
Spanish writer Espido Freire’s pink Hannibal Laguna Spring 2009 dress was the most stunning on this red carpet, but she badly lets herself down with the Paco Gil shoes and and that blue shawl she’s carrying.
Things like the shawl need to be handed to the nearest lacky during photo ops.
Her jewels were by Vasari.
I think I’ve said it once…no I’ve said it a thousand times, this electric blue colour is so captivating on the red carpet.
I’m like a moth to a flame whenever I see this colour on the red carpet.
Tamara Falco looked divine in her Notte by Marchesa Fall 2009 one-shouldered gown with an embellished detail on the strap and bodice.
Arantxa del Sol looked spectacular wearing an Oscar de la Renta pleated duchess satin gown which was my favourite from the Fall 2009 collection.
She paired it with the runway belt which matched her clutch.
We’ve seen this Valentino Spring 2009 red dress many times on the red carpet and I always say the same thing.
Why would anyone want to wear a gown which is so unflattering on the hips?
Fiona Ferrer proves me right, as she looks so bottom heavy.
Alejandra Martos was kept in the shade wearing a strapless black gown, whilst Tony Acosta stood out wearing a two tone Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2009 gown with a red rosette detail on the waist.
I love the shiny effect of her black skirt.
Vanessa Lorenzo opted for a blue shapeless gown of her own design, whilst Natalia Lopez looked angelic wearing an Angel Schlesser Spring 2010 ivory wrap gown.
Whilst everyone opted for gowns, TV personality Patricia Conde picked a youthful sassy Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 black and nude ensemble.
She went head-to-toe LV, as she paired her look with a LV gold clutch and Cancan heels.
It could just be the light, but I much prefer the softer blue runway version of Monica Molina’s Angel Schlesser Spring 2010 dress.
This black Juanjo Oliva Fall 2009 gown as worn by Nieves Alvarez is so amazing that it’s such a same the detail is lost against the black carpet and black background.
Her look is complete with a Roger Vivier clutch.
Model Martina Klein was pretty in a pink Angel Schlesser Spring 2010 mini dress with a ruffled detail on the bodice.
Here are some more looks by special request.
Princess Elena of Spain looked breath-taking wearing an Angel Schlesser Spring 2010 strapless gown.
I love the cerulean blue colour she wore, as it’s more regal to the ivory runway version.
Spanish model Mar Flores’ Angel Schlesser Spring 2010 strapless gown looks so buttery against her olive skin.
The feathered detail is a nice finishing touch.
Spanish model Estefania Luyk wore a taupe Giorgio Armani Pre-Fall 2009 strapless dress, but as usual I’m more drawn to the colourful Paco Rabanne confection that actress Laura Pamplona is wearing.
Carmen Lomana opted for a silky blue Juanjo Oliva Spring 2010 dress
