Nieves Alvarez In Moschino Cheap & Chic, Nina Ricci & Lanvin – Solo Moda

Nieves Alvarez took things up a notch for Sunday’s ‘Solo Moda’.

The host gave us three totally different looks for her second show.

She started off with a zesty Moschino Cheap & Chic Fall 2012 organza dress. I love the modification of this look. The all-over ruffles with the narrower silhouette take it from sweet to sassy.

The same Christian Louboutin ‘Lady Max’ spike-embellished metallic leather sandals we saw her wear on the red carpet last week and a selection of green Pandora bracelets accessorized this look.

I was going to say that her Nina Ricci Spring 2012 floral top and skirt was the most conservative of her looks so far until I got to her Emilio Pucci gold lace-up ankle boots. A much unexpected but interesting addition to this belted look.

Sunday’s final look was a sleek Lanvin Spring 2012 ensemble we’ve seen on Tilda Swinton. On this occasion I don’t like the bracelets with her nude long-sleeve top and forest-green skirt. Something that looked more expensive would’ve been preferred.

Her bow-front Christian Louboutin rose gold pumps however are perfect for this look.

Six looks, six different pairs of shoes. Hollywood, it can be done.

Glamour Spain 10th Anniversary Party

There were many more glamorous stars on the red carpet at the Glamour Spain 10th Anniversary Party in Madrid last night.

Petra Nemcova: The Czech model looked sensational wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 midnight-blue fully sequined gown teamed with a Ferragamo silver clutch. The fit could’ve been a bit better around the bust, but with that gorgeous face and impeccable styling she gets a pass, even with the glossy, wavy ombre locks. When will this trend die?

Poppy Delevigne: We are used to seeing the British model in Chanel but on this occasion she wore a Jonathan Saunders Spring 2012 ivory pleated dress. Beachy waves, gold sandals and a colourful beaded red clutch completed her look.

Lily Donaldson: The model who tends to favour British brands on the red carpet donned a sexy backless Nina Ricci gown with ruched details for this occasion. With crystal details embellishing the shoulders she smouldered on the red carpet sporting a red-hot lip colour and side-swept wavy locks.

Diane Kruger In Nina Ricci – ‘Killing Them Softly’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

After opting for an all-out glamorous look at the ‘Amour’ premiere, Diane Kruger reverted back to a more ethereal, romantic look for the ‘Killing Them Softly’ premiere this evening during Cannes Film Festival.

The German actress wore beautiful white Nina Ricci gown which custom made for this event.

The breathtaking drop-waist gown with embroidered details had feathered embellishments and a floaty chiffon skirt.

Her look was nearly all white except for the lavender corsage on the shoulder.

With her hair rolled into a retro 40s style, Diane was glowing with her beau Joshua Jackson by her side in head-to-toe black Lanvin.

A silver embellished Judith Leiber clutch and a diamond bracelet completed her look.

Leslie Mann In Nina Ricci – 2012 Met Gala

After last week’s BDOTW win wearing a bold floral print, Leslie Mann opted for a softer look at the 2012 Met Gala, held in New York City on Monday evening.

The actress looked ultra feminine wearing a Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2012 gown.

Her petal-pink gown features a high-low hemline and cascading ruffles down the front.

Leslie paired the romantic dress with black accessories including a bejewelled belt, an embellished clutch and lace-up Tom Ford heels.

A loose updo, styled like the model in the look book pictures, kohl-rimmed eyes and Fred Leighton complete the look.

Scarlett Johansson In Nina Ricci – ‘The Avengers’ Moscow Premiere

Last night Scarlett Johansson joined co-stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston on the red carpet for the premiere of ‘The Avengers’ in Moscow, Russia.

She wore a Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Whilst her figure-hugging black dress with a plunging neckline, ruching and ribbon detailing should be considered sexy, there is no sex appeal. At least not in my eyes.

ScarJo hasn’t really wowed me for a while.

Her bombshell status has been revoked and passed onto Amber Heard and this is why: because ScarJo fails to breathe life into this dress.

While Sarah Jessica Parker, Mila Kunis, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and even Angelina Jolie all went big for their Moscow premieres, ScarJo really let the side down, especially with that limp hairdo.

Casadei blade black pumps and a silver cuff completed this disappointing look.

It’s gonna be a long promo tour at this rate.

Nina Ricci Fall 2012

Upon arrival at the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris, prior to the Nina Ricci Fall 2012 presentation, we were met by a candlelit walkway which was very romantic as night fell in Paris.

Once we arrived in the venue we were once again seduced by the dim lighting and chandeliers which hung from the ceiling.

Peter Copping was inspired by a vision of a young girl exploring her mother’s and grandmother’s wardrobe.

She playfully mixes up, unpicks, re-sews and cuts up the pieces, presenting a contemporary collection of elegant items.

We saw a lot of tweed alongside silk, cashmere, silk chiffon, touches of fur and lots of sheer pieces.

Slip dresses and skirts were presented double splits with the right side lined. Sheer blouses were styled under chunky tweed skirt suits. Fur collars accented luxe wool coats and pencil skirts were worn low on the hips, as they would do if a young girl was playing dress up in mother’s clothes.

Key accessories included: lace-up boots, chic Mary Janes and a fur stoles with attached gloves.

I loved the bags. The ‘Smile’ was presented in patchwork python and quilted deerskin. The ‘La Rue’, which is a gorgeous grained calfskin or crocodile bowling bag will surely be a best seller, and the ‘VIP’, which is a bow-accented compact case decorated with coloured rhinestones which we will most definitely see on the red carpet.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kate Bosworth, Michelle Williams, Ashley Greene, Clemence Poesy, Keira Knightley, Freida Pinto, Naomi Watts, Kate Beckinsale, Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Aniston
