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.

Beyonce Knowles kicked off her 42-city ‘Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’ in Belgrade, Serbia last night, wearing a white crystal- and pearl-embellished bodysuit with a peplum skirt and fringed epaulettes, designed by Ralph & Russo.
They are not the only ones who will be dressing Beyoncé during this epic tour.
Peter Dundas, Creative Director at Emilio Pucci, has created four looks for Beyoncé, for which he drew inspiration from his Fall 2013 collection. The costumes will resonate with the singer’s modern take on glamour and complement the theatrical storytelling of the ‘Mrs. Carter Show’.
Dean and Dan Caten from DSquared2 will also be dressing Beyoncé for her tour, creating exclusive pieces inspired by their ‘Glamazons’ Spring 2013 collection.
As for the shoes, Beyonce’s stylist and mother, Tina Knowles, worked with Stuart Weitzman to create footwear to complement her costumes, ranging from stiletto pumps with Swarovski crystal detailing, to lace military-influenced ankle- and knee-high boots.
Beyonce’s world tour runs until August 5, when she will close at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn – aptly.

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.

Petra Nemcova wowed at the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 2013 Oscars viewing party tonight at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.
The model wore a beautiful silver, Art Deco-inspired one-shoulder gown by European couture design house, Ralph & Russo.
The slinky dress, which was hand-embellished with crystals, was juxtaposed with a dramatic, black silk bow belt and a thigh-high slit.
Black t-strap sandals and a black clutch, both from Salvatore Ferragamo, along with Chopard diamond and black gemstone pendant earrings, accented that artistically oversized bow at her waist.
Side-swept tucked-under hair, a smokey eye and a nude lip provided the finishing touches to this va-va-voom moment.

While her sister Beyoncé went for a black and white ensemble, Solange Knowles once again showed off her love of vibrant hues at Sunday’s 2013 Grammy Awards, hosted at the Staples Center in California.
Donning a shiny and slinky, emerald-green Ralph & Russo Couture gown, she worked one of those ubiquitous, thigh-high slits to her advantage.
The structured cap sleeve of the dress added a jolt of quirkiness, as did those fluorescent coral-pink pumps.
But it was Solange’s extreme ‘do that really rocked this red carpet.
