Nieves Alvarez In Emilio Pucci – Heineken Road To The Final Event

Nieves Alvarez In Emilio Pucci - Heineken Road To The Final Event

Even though the finalists haven’t been decided yet, Nieves Alvarez hosted an event with Heineken to celebrate the road to the Champions League Final today (April 25) in Madrid, Spain.

The model wore a ruffled Emilio Pucci LWD, which is a more playful approach from the Italian brand known for its sexy frocks.

An asymmetrical seam across the front splices the silhouette to give the illusion of a narrower figure. Anchored by the soft cream hue, this thigh-skimming piece was styled with a towering pair of Emilio Pucci sandals, Aristocrazy earrings and a YSL ring.

I would’ve preferred daintier footwear for a more elegant finish, but Nieves’ looks are always topped off with a fierce pair of heels, so I’m not really complaining.

Nieves Alvarez In Ralph & Russo Couture – Goya Cinema Awards 2014

Nieves Alvarez In Ralph & Russo Couture - Goya Cinema Awards 2014

Nieves Alvarez attended the Goya Cinema Awards 2014 held at Centro de Congresos Principe Felipe on Sunday (February 9) in Madrid, Spain.

Continuing her perfect run in Ralph & Russo; the supermodel looked sensational wearing a Spring 2014 Couture nude silk georgette gown with rose gold embellishment, accented with black velvet belt.

A smaller, simple clutch would’ve been preferred over her detail velvet selection, but it doesn’t take too much away from her gorgeous look.

Get The Look: Nieves Alvarez’s Chiseled Cheeks

Vanity Fair 5th Anniversary Party In MadridYou no longer need to do the duck lip pose in your selfies in order to get high cheekbones.

We’ve got the lowdown on how you can recreate the envied jawline of Nieves Alvarez with a few simple tools. The key to achieving a structured look is to enhance the shadows and play up areas where the light naturally hits your face.

Start by choosing a contouring shade that is two shades darker than your complexion.  This will give you the coveted shadow of a high cheekbone. According to Jennifer Jane, Celebrity Makeup Artist who has worked with the Best Dressed International Star, the key to a sleeker jawline is to remember less is more.

Piling on the product and forgetting to properly blend can leave your face looking dirty. So, as Jane says, “Blend, blend, blend until all edges have disappeared.” In addition to blending, the right tools are essential to a sculpted look. Use an angled brush such as the Laura Mercier Angled Cheek Contour Brush to perfect your application.

After you’ve exaggerated the hollowed area, it’s time to highlight. Pick a shade slightly lighter than your normal foundation to brighten the area right above your blush. A radiant product, such as the Illuminator by Nars, will dramatically intensify the reflection of light, making cheeks pop.

Nieves Alvarez In Zuhair Murad Couture, Andrew Gn & Pinko – Solo Moda

Nieves Alvarez In Zuhair Murad Couture, Andrew Gn & Pinko - Solo Moda

Nieves Alvarez ushered in the New Year during her ‘Solo Moda’ show over the weekend with the same lofty level of style that won her the Best Dressed International Star of 2013.

On Saturday (January 4), the model host exclusively strutted out a trio of tantalizing Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 Couture designs, each one taking the notion of lace to a new level.

First, she was the epitome of full-on glamour in a snow-queen-worthy, icy-blue gown, embellished with a sea of sparkling, crystallized branches and finished with an illusion neckline and a sheer lacy sleeve.

Following this floor-scraping confection, Nieves debuted a knee-length nude design, emblazoned with black flowery embroidery. The nude effect and the plunge detail oozed sultriness, while the peplum waist and classic silhouette was sophistication personified.

The calling card for her final look of the day was its dreamy colour of deep lilac. Of course, despite the refined sweetheart neckline and cocktail length, the sheer nature of the embroidered purple filigree had sexiness written all over it.

Best Dressed International Star 2013 – Nieves Alvarez

Best Dressed International Star 2013 – Nieves Alvarez

Spanish model and TV host Nieves Alvarez was your best-dressed international star of 2013.

Some stars peak only during major events like Cannes, or a big-budget promo tour; however, each of Nieves’ looks were high on glamour, from hosting her Solo Moda show to the Goya Awards – even her promotional efforts to promote wool were another picture-perfect moment.

Nieves was the total package, never letting us down in the hair, makeup and especially the shoe department.

My personal highlights were the Goya Awards and Cannes Film Festival.
