Norma Ruiz In Donna Karan – Fotogramas Magazine Awards

Norma Ruiz In Donna Karan - Fotogramas Magazine Awards

Norma Ruiz made an elegant appearance at the 2014 Fotogramas Magazine Awards in Madrid, Spain, on Monday evening (February 24).

Wearing a Donna Karan black floor-length dress with asymmetric cut-away detail at the shoulder and with a high split, Norma oozed glamour.

The Spanish actress is at her best in dramatic long dresses, just as this look shows.

I really like the way Norma always finds a way to add a unique spin to all of her looks. And true to word, Norma gave this classic black dress a real lift with a patent iridescent Jimmy Choo clutch and undeniably chic Rabat yellow diamond jewellery.

Norma’s perfect finishing touch was a pair of on-trend gold Jimmy Choo pumps and a sleek back-combed up-do. Simply stunning.

Donna Karan Fall 2014 Front Row

Donna Karan Fall 2014 Front Row

Donna Karan, celebrating 30 years in the industry, had a star-studded front row at its New York Fashion Week show, including Rita Ora and Katie Holmes.

Kate Holmes: The actress wore a sexy Donna Karan look, donning a black halter-neck-style leather top nipped in at the waist, and a long pleated on-trend sheer skirt for the evening show. Tousled waves and soft makeup in nude hues rounded out her look. For me, it’s been a very long while since she looked this good.

Rita Ora: The British singer, and star of DKNY’s current ad campaign, took her brand of sexy down a very obvious route, wearing a Donna Karan black sheer-sleeved dress with a plunging neckline and gathered waist. Of course, the red lip was present, with black smoky eyes and sleek tresses. A selection of gold chains to complement her sandals accessorized her look.

Norma Ruiz In Donna Karan Atelier – Goya Cinema Awards 2014

*ALFOMBRA ROJA DE LA 28 EDICION DE LOS PREMIOS GOYA

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

When I saw this spectacular Donna Karan Atelier purple-and-black ombre part-cold-shoulder, part-off-the-shoulder gown on the Spanish beauty; Montell Jordan’s 90s hit, “This is How We Do It”, starting playing in my internal jukebox.

Her jaw-dropping gown has everything: drama, intrigue, elegance and sass appeal, plus the styling couldn’t be more on point with the chic bun, subtle jewels and black clutch.

While my reaction to Norma’s looks is usually, ‘just ok’, this look is one of her best ever looks.

You may remember that Naomie Harris wore this same gown last year to the Met Gala.

Camila Alves In Donna Karan Atelier & Matthew McConaughey In Dolce & Gabbana – 2014 SAG Awards

Camila Alves In Donna Karan Atelier – 2014 SAG Awards

Camila Alves was a bright spot on the red carpet of the 2014 SAG Awards in Los Angeles tonight (January 18).

The actress wore a dramatic, draped silk Donna Karan Atelier gown while her main man looked striking in Dolce & Gabbana.

There is little doubt that Camila is arm candy this award season, but she has definitely pulled out all the stops with this look. The colour is eye-catching and the gown is breath-taking and her figure is jaw-dropping.

A Christian Louboutin ‘Loubi Strass’ Bronze crystal box clutch and Casadei sandals accent the look, while her usual smokey and bronzed makeup are lovely.

I do wish she would have done something not quite so ‘beach-swept’ with her hair–the gown deserves something a bit more dramatic–but overall, a lovely look.

Sofía Vergara In Donna Karan Atelier – 2014 SAG Awards

Sofía Vergara In Donna Karan Atelier - 2014 SAG Awards

Sofia Vergara was all about classic Hollywood glamour at the 2014 SAG Awards on Saturday (January 18) in Los Angeles.

The ‘Modern Family’ actress shone in silver, beaded Donna Karan Atelier that hugged her famous curves and had a low, draped back. It would have been sexier without the strap across the back but it was most likely necessary to keep Sofia’s ample bustline supported so she gets a pass on that one.

Sofia embraced a more is more philosophy by adding a statement necklace to the heavily embellished gown and finishing the look off with bouncy waves.

After making a controversial choice at the Golden Globe Awards, it was nice to see Sofia just being Sofia – a spicy, sultry bombshell.

Norma Ruiz In Donna Karan – José María Forqué Film Awards

Norma Ruiz In Donna Karan - José María Forqué Film Awards

Norma Ruiz joined Juana Acosta on the red carpet for the José María Forqué Film Awards held at the Palacio de Congresos in Madrid, Spain on Monday (January 13).

Wearing brown, one of the trickiest colours to pull off on the red carpet, the actress wore a Donna Karan Fall 2013 long-sleeved jersey-leather-and-velvet collage gown.

While I love the complementary Roger Vivier clutch, brown just never works for me on the red carpet. The only person who got a pass was Naya Rivera, who also wore a Donna Karan dress from the same collection.

Had this been a rich plum or lavender colour, I would’ve adored this look.
