Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Nieves Alvarez Burberry

The statuesque Nieves Alvarez dialed up the glam quotient on Solo Moda this weekend.

In keeping with her current one-exclusive-designer-per-episode policy, on Saturday the TV host turned to Burberry Prorsum’s Spring 2013 collection.

Nieves showcased her femme fatale curves in one of my favourites from the collection, the pink jewel-toned metallic strapless dress replete with curve detailing at the corset bust and a subtle peplum detail at the waist. The yellow peep-toe pumps added the perfect finishing touch and pop of colour to this high-shine supercharged look.

Next up, Nieves opted for a studied chic look in a tailored white silk Burberry Prorsum trench with a retro cape paired with cut-out Christian Louboutin ankle boots. I would have loved it if she had opted to inject a touch of colour into this fabulous outerwear with a pair of bold killer heels.

Her final Burberry Prorsum Spring 2013 ensemble is one I’ve admired before on Emma Stone at the 2012 CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Awards. This gorgeous structured navy-blue peplum corset top with a black waistband donned with a decadent sparkly green pencil skirt is a stellar look that could have been a real winner had Nieves chosen a more dramatic shoe to complete the look.

Who Wore Pucci Better

Back in September, Olga Kurylenko attended the Venice Film Festival premiere of her latest movie, ‘To The Wonder’, wearing an Emilio Pucci baby-blue frock with sheer panelling and embroidered details from the Fall 2012 collection.

Her pretty dress was styled with nude Louboutin pumps and minimal makeup.

‘Solo Moda’ host Nieves Alvarez wore the same dress a few months later while attending the Vogue & Mario Testino December Issue launch event held at Fernán Núñez Palace in Madrid, Spain.

Opting for pops of colour via her Christian Louboutin sandals and Moschino clutch, she let herself down with a lacklustre hairstyle, so Olga and her glossy wavy tresses win for me.

Nieves Alvarez In David Delfin  - Solo Moda

Nieves Alvarez’s M.O. for Sola Moda this season appears to be sticking to one designer during the show.

On Saturday, she exclusively wore pieces from David Delfin’s Spring 2013 collection.

First up was a white sheath dress decorated with multi-coloured crystals, which she styled with bi-colour Christian Louboutin Arnoeud ankle boots with a cute bow accent. I love the pieces separately, but not together as the boots feel too weighty against the dress.

As you know, I love jumpsuits, but I’m not sure this David Delfin piece is something I would wear. Alvarez, on the other hand, is working the hell out of this biker-inspired piece with multiple zippers. I also love her embellished Louboutins with this look.

Christian Louboutin ‘Summerissima’ sandals were perfectly colour co-ordinated to her David Delfin red-and-white trompe l’oeil dress.

Nieves Alvarez In Roberto Cavalli & Zuhair Murad - Solo Moda

Nieves Alvarez presented the new season of her TV show Solo Moda in fine style, as we’ve come to expect.

On Saturday, she donned three Roberto Cavalli looks, which mostly had a masculine feel to them.

First up was an all-black Spring 2013 look, featuring shredded-leather rock-chick pants with a sexy sheer blouse, which she styled with a black tuxedo jacket with satin lapels. I can imagine Kate Moss donning these pants at some point.

The following two, similar, looks are from Cavalli’s colourful Resort 2013 collection.

Sporting a blue-and-white printed suit similar to the one owned by Karolina Kurkova, the TV host added white sandals with pink accents to girlify her look.

Keeping those same heels, her third look, with the same print in dark pink, has a more relaxed vacation vibe, with loose-fitted pants and a short-sleeved blouse.

Nieves Alvarez Solo Moda NYE

Nieves Alvarez strutted into 2013 with a special New Year’s Eve end-of-season edition of her Solo Moda show.

The Spanish supermodel and TV host has a body for fashion, and she played to the festive occasion in six highly formal and floor-grazing looks.

On Saturday, she debuted a flashy Blumarine Fall 2012 confection pavéd in iridescent studs; it was a modern mermaid moment.

Nieves has flaunted Andrew Gn several times before on her show, but her darkly romantic, three-quarter-sleeve dress from the designer had a moodier vibe.

While the draped Grecian trend has been rather exhausted, Nieves’ goddess look – a nude, long-sleeve Elie Saab Fall 2012 column gown – made her look statuesque. Read more…

Nieves Alvarez proved to the world that when it comes to celebrity footwear, there are more than two brands (Christian Louboutin and Brian Atwood) and that there are more than two styles (‘Maniacs’ and ‘Daffodiles’).

The Spanish TV host took over this vacation position once held so proudly by Leighton Meester, giving us an array of lust worthy pumps, sandals and ankle boots is various colours during the run on Solo Moda.

Never did a black pump nor a ‘Maniac’ touch her well-manicured feet and didn’t we love her for it.
