Mango’s Spring 2010 Collection Launch Party

In Madrid this week the stars came out to celebrate the launch of the new Mango collection.

Scarlett Johansson may have been the “major” star at the event, but it was Monica Cruz who stole she show wearing a longer version of the Herve Leger Fall 2009 dress we’ve seen on Miley Cyrus and Julia Stegner.

Penelope’s kid sister paired her dazzling dress with suede Louboutin peep-toes.

Ana Locking wore a beautifully structured grey dress from her own Fall 2009 collection with both the grey tights and shoe boots they were presented with.

Scarlett Johansson continues to lose her sparkle for me.

I understand she has to promote Mango, but does she have to look like Miss Moneypenny every time?

Surely the could have dressed her in something more interesting and less secretarial.

Every time she promotes Mango it’s like groundhog day.

Dree Hemingway has to be one of the coolest chicks on the planet behind Erin Wasson.

On most those half denim-half leather pants from Mango’s Fall 2009 collection would be a total disaster, but Drew makes them look cool.

Despite that I will never consider trying this look.

Spanish actress Lola Marceli and Clara Courel arrived at this event wearing the same navy Mango sequin mini dress with a sheer mesh back.

They’re even both wearing Louboutin’s.

Let’s hope they weren’t sitting next to each other during the presentation.

Elisabeth Reyes, Maria Jose Suarez and Priscila de Gustin all wore black Mango dresses, but thankfully they were not the same.

The one that stands out is Priscila’s Mango metallic sequin one shoulder dress which she wore with thigh-high boots.

Idoia Montero and Amaia Montero also both wore black, but Amaia added a pop of pink via her heels with her Mango sequin one shoulder dress.

You can see a few images from the Mango Spring 2010 presentation below. It inspiration appears to be military meets ‘Little House on the Prairie’.

Very cute.

Who Wore Antonio Berardi Better? Victoria Beckham or Monica Cruz


Victoria Beckham was wearing so much black, and her own collection, that I was no longer looking forward to what she wore next.

Victoria didn’t stay stale for long.

In London, she went for dinner with Kate Beckinsale wearing a fuschia pink Antonio Berardi drop waist dress coat, totally outshining her companion.

Monica Cruz wore the same dress in black – which I believe was the right choice for her – to her sisters premiere of Los Abrazos Rotos.

It’s hard to compete with Victoria when she’s on the top her game, so VB wins for me.


Browns Fashion don’t have the black nor the pink, but they have this stunning electric blue version for sale for £1,115.00/€1,180.77/$1,611.51.

19.03.09 Premiere

"Los Abrazos Rotos" (Broken Embraces) World Premiere

Penelope Cruz – alongside fellow Spanish actress Blanca Portillo and Director Pedro Almodóvar – is back to her stunning best wearing a L’Wren Scott black sparkling gown.

I am really happy those blunt bangs are gone, as this Cindy Crawford-esqe style it more fitting.

Little sis Monica Cruz wore a black Antonio Berardi Spring 2009 mini shirt dress, with black slingbacks and a gold clutch.

She could have worn the fuschia pink version of this dress and really stood out, but this was her sister’s night to shine.

The neckline of Rosana Pastor’s blue satin dress is exquisite.

I love her Jimmy Choo Corsica strappy sandals, but for me they don’t work with the dress.

Elena Ballesteros style is impeccable here. I would rock this look in a heart-beat.

The Spanish actress wore Chanel cropped jacket, with black leggings and black sandals. She added touches of colour with her white tee and red quilted clutch.

Ellen’s look has a Parisian vibe to it, J’Adore ?.

Model Blanca Romero wore a very cute gingham Christian Dior bubble hemmed dress. I love the cute bow detail on the waist, and matching grey Dior heels.

Gorgeous model Eugenia Silva added nude accessories with her black and white look.

I adore her belted blazer, and I am happy to finally seen one of those mini Christian Dior Spring 2009 sheer skirts on the red carpet.

Bibiana Fernandez wore than stood out on this red carpet wearing a one-shouldered turquoise Lanvin leopard print dress. This dress may look familiar to you, and that is because Maggie Gyllenhaal wore it to the Golden Globe Awards earlier this year.

Bibi’s funky look is completed with a gold pair of Christian Louboutin multi buckle sandals.

I was drawn to Cayetana Guillen Cuervo’s white Juanjo Oliva Spring 2009 dress, because of the origami bow.

Normally this kind of bold detail puts me off, but it really works well here.

Actress Veronica Sanchez works an oversized blazer look, which is very much a trend right now.

Her check pants and French Connection wooden clutch, complete this laid back chic look.
