Life Ball 2013

As we’ve seen time and again at the Cannes Film Festival, Roberto Cavalli is a reigning king of the soiree scene. The designer ruled the red carpet again at Saturday’s extravagant 21st Life Ball and its accompanying, exclusive AIDS Solidarity Gala, which was hosted in the Viennese Hofburg Palace in Austria. A trio of Cavalli lovelies were all dressed to impress, naturally.

Karolina Kurkova: After strutting out a memorable, skin-flaunting Roberto Cavalli entrance at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala last week, this supermodel returned to the designer for the Solidarity soiree. Except this time, she arrived with far more fabric on her statuesque frame. Still, with this androgynous, embellished tuxedo statement, she was as sexy as ever. This girl can work a power suit to the max. Her long flowing locks and a look-at-me red lippie gave us even more glam.

Aishwarya Rai: Speaking of glam, the Indian star served it up in spades. As the International Goodwill Ambassador for UNAIDS, she lit up the Life Ball stage with her covetable Cavalli hourglass gown, a long-sleeve, dark navy number that was awash in shimmering mermaid-like scales. A peek-a-boo front slit put another level of sultriness into this exit.

Nieves Alvarez: Usually this Spanish model/TV host’s enviable shoes are her plus-one, but she had a handsome accessory in husband Marco Severini, who joined her at the event. She was a long-and-lean screen siren in her Cavalli red column gown featuring an embossed Byzantine pattern, half-circle cutouts at the neckline and a side slit. Gold accessories accented the look with Nieves’s brand of bold style.

Nieves Alvarez In Ralph & Russo Couture – ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Nieves Alvarez In  Ralph & Russo Couture -  ‘Jimmy P (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Let’s be honest, Cannes has been a little lacking in the wow department this year.

I have been waiting for a gown would lift me up and knock me off my feet, and it was Nieves Alvarez who has finally given me that magic moment.

The supermodel and Solo Moda host looked sensational taking to the red carpet at the Grand Théâtre Lumière in France for the ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian)’ premiere this evening.
She wore a custom Ralph & Russo Couture raspberry gown which exudes old Hollywood glamour.

The unique strapless fitted gown has a spectacular gazaar bustle which starts from a rose-gold plated detail from her hip and snakes around to the back to form a train.

Gold accessories including a Christian Louboutin clutch, sandals and Chopard jewels styled her look along with flawless makeup and side-swept tresses.

This is the kind of brilliance which makes Cannes so special. I’m so glad that I finally have a truly memorable BDOTY moment.

All hail the Queen of Cannes.

Nieves Alvarez In Gucci – Condé Nast Traveller Awards

Nieves Alvarez In Gucci - Condé Nast Traveller Awards

Nieves Alvarez attended the Condé Nast Traveller Awards held in Madrid, Spain this week looking as stunning as always.

Never one to do things by halves, she wore a bold coral look from the Gucci Spring 2013 collection, featuring a tunic with an elaborate embellished neckline and a keyhole detail.

I don’t care how sad this sounds, but my heart skipped a little beat of joy when I saw her metallic-green Manolo Blahnik pumps. She never fails on the shoe front and God bless her for that.

Perhaps with that decorative neckline the supermodel and TV host possibly didn’t need to add Bvlgari jewels and a gold studded Christian Louboutin clutch, but the looks gets two thumbs up from me regardless.

Nieves Alvarez In Saint Laurent – ‘Feria de Sevilla’ Bullfight

Nieves Alvarez In Saint Laurent - ‘Feria de Sevilla’ Bull Fight

Despite our personal objections, the Saint Laurent Spring 2013 collection is getting a lot of celebrity love.

Nieves Alvarez joined Miriam Yeung in wearing a look from said collection this weekend, when she attended the ‘Feria de Sevilla’ bullfight in Seville, Spain.

Who knew bull fight was such a dressy affair?

We’ve seen plenty of pant suit combos, but Nieves, as expected gives the look a fresh twist.

So many celebs have been slaves to the runway styling, that it’s refreshing to see her colourful accessories including a Jimmy Choo red pumps, a black Jimmy Choo clutch and what I thought was another striped bag was actually a seat cover from the event.

Nieves opted to carry her jacquard blazer, as the weather looks glorious there in Seville.

Nieves Alvarez In Moschino & Escada – Solo Moda

Moschino

Nieves Alvarez was back hosting her fashion show, Solo Moda, this weekend.

On Saturday, she wore looks from the Moschino Spring 2013 collection.

Her first orange-and-white frock looks like a saucy apron. Even with those orange Louboutins I can’t find this look appealing.

I do, however, love her second look, a striking blue-and-white striped top and skirt. The fresh nautical stripes are given a modern twist with a pair of orange Jimmy Choo ‘Taste’ sandals.

A lace LBD with tulle-accented shoulders is yet another sultry look. The silver embellished Moschino ankle boots unfortunately weigh the look down for me.

Nieves Alvarez In Vionnet, Alfredo Villalba, Ralph & Russo & Gucci – Solo Moda

Solo Moda Vionnet

Spanish beauty Nieves Alvarez shined in six stunning outfits over the weekend as she hosted her show ‘Solo Moda’.

Her first look, a sleeveless, v-neck Vionnet Resort 2013 dress, is right on-trend with its color blocking, and is the perfect choice for the stunning model and host to show-off her enviable décolletage and legs. The peep toe, ankle-strapped Jimmy Choo sandals are subtle enough not to compete with the dress’s statement-making colors.

Sticking with the Vionnet Resort 2013 collection, her second look was a chic, ankle-grazing pantsuit. The key to a successful suit is the tailoring, and this is tailored perfectly to fit her body. The sky-high, orange Oscar de la Renta sandals give the black and white ensemble the perfect finishing pop of color.

Her final look of the first day is a simple, flowing Vionnet Resort 2013 dress with a similar shape to the first. The knee-grazing, tulip-shaped skirt looks both effortless and chic at once, and she once again turns to her shoes–peach Christian Louboutin sandals–to get a little punch of color interest.
