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.

2013 Telva Fashion Awards

2013 Telva Fashion Awards

The 2013 Telva Fashion Awards took place at the Palacio de Cibeles in Madrid, Spain yesterday evening, with some of our favourite Spanish beauties taking to the red carpet to celebrate the event’s 50th anniversary.

Nieves Alvarez: The model, who was the host of the event, set the glamour bar very high wearing an Emilio Pucci one-of-a-kind bedazzled beaded long-sleeved open-back gown styled with an oversized Swarovski clutch and Suarez jewels.

Juana Acosta: The actress looked breathtaking wearing an Oscar de la Renta Resort 2014 black floral bubble peplum top and black silk-faille ballskirt, styled with a contrasting red Louboutin clutch and gold jewels. This was my favourite of the night.

Norma Ruiz: The actress opted for an ethereal look, wearing a Donna Karan Atelier one-shoulder gown with a lattice bodice and free-flowing ruffled cascading skirt, which she styled with Jimmy Choo embellished sandals, a matching Swarovski clutch and Yanes jewels. I love the smoky-eye/nude-matte-lip combo here.

Nieves Alvarez In Zuhair Murad – Rolling Stone Magazine Awards 2013

Nieves Alvarez In Zuhair Murad - Rolling Stone Magazine Awards 2013

Nieves Alvarez attended the Rolling Stone Magazine Awards 2013 held at the Kapital Club in Madrid, Spain yesterday evening.

Working a super-sexy ‘I’m with the band’ look, the model teased her hair into a lacquered-and-loose style, donning a micro-mini Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 long-sleeved jacquard floral-print dress.

With ear cuffs being all the rage now, Nieves took her rock-chic look up a notch with a pair designed by her stylist Victor Blanco for Yanes Young and a spiked ring.

Aquazzura sexy black sandals and a black Saint Laurent clutch completed her look.

The majority of you weren’t so keen on her Gucci look from yesterday, so is this more like the Nieves you know and love?

Nieves Alvarez In Gucci – ‘Naty Abascal’ Book Presentation

Nieves Alvarez In Gucci - 'Naty Abascal' Book Presentation

Nieves Alvarez hosted the ‘Naty Abascal’ book presentation at the Hotel Villa Magna in Madrid, Spain yesterday evening.

The model wore a Gucci Fall 2013 look consisting of an olive top and black jacket with net trousers featuring embellishments and feather appliqués, immediately drawing your attention.

We have seen so many of the embellished, feather-festooned finale gowns from this collection that I almost forgot that there was a trousered piece in the mix.

Nieves looks impeccable as always, but my curiosity has me wondering how this outfit would look without the jacket. Does the top half of the trousers feature solid black pants or are they embellished all the way through?

Giving her Manolos a break, Nieves styled her look with black Gucci sandals, a Jimmy Choo clutch and Carrera y Carrera jewels.

Nieves Alvarez In Juanjo Oliva – ‘XX’ Fashion Film Presentation

Nieves Alvarez In Juanjo Oliva  - 'XX' Fashion Film Presentation

Nieves Alvarez presented her fashion film ‘XX’ in association with Sony yesterday in Madrid, Spain.

Supporting a local designer, the model wore a Juanjo Oliva Spring 2014 leather skater dress in a bold fire-engine-red hue and sexy mid-thigh length.

With legs that long and lean, I would’ve loved to have seen some fancy footwear at the end of them (or even the runway heels); instead she wore her black Manolo Blahnik pumps for a third time in a row.

Nieves styled the rest of her look with a black Juanjo Oliva clutch and Aristocrazy crucifix earrings.

Nieves Alvarez In Christian Dior – Woolmark’s ‘Campaña por la Lana’ Campaign Promotion

Nieves Alvarez In Christian Dior – Woolmark’s ‘Campaña por la Lana’ Campaign Promotion

Nieves Alvarez continued her promotional efforts for Woolmark’s ‘Campaña por la Lana’ campaign in Madrid, Spain.

The model this time wore a cable-knit look from Christian Dior’s Fall 2013 collection featuring a high-neck sweater with a high-waist skirt featuring a draped detail on the hip.

If the top appears a tad bulkier on Nieves this would be due to her again wearing the look with a black turtleneck with thumbholes.

Manolo Blahnik black pumps completed the look again.

Nieves Alvarez In Stéphane Rolland Couture – 2013 Marie Claire Prix de la Moda Awards

Nieves Alvarez In Stéphane Rolland Couture - 2013 Marie Claire Prix de la Moda Awards

Following her chic daytime look, Nieves Alvarez took glamour to another level while attending the 2013 Marie Claire Prix de la Moda Awards held at the Residence of France in Madrid, Spain yesterday evening.

The model and Solo Moda host wore a Stephane Rolland Spring 2013 Couture gown featuring a white body and a pewter sequined skirt with black satin panels and a spectacular train.

Wearing an appropriate amount of jewels courtesy of Chopard, which didn’t overpower her breathtaking gown, Nieves styled her look with a Jimmy Choo clutch and Stuart Weitzman sandals, with her hair swept up into a side-parted updo and kohl-rimmed eyes and a soft-pink lip colour completing her look.

We kinda lost faith in Stephane Rolland following Paz Vega’s look during Cannes Film Festival, but this look puts the designer firmly back on the map.
