2015 Malaga Film Festival Opening Ceremony

2015 Malaga Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Spanish stunners were out in force for the 18th Malaga Film Festival opening ceremony, hosted at the Cervantes Theater on Friday (April 17) in Malaga, Spain. Here, a roundup of the looks—many from Spanish designers, naturally—that took to the red carpet.

Manuela Velasco: The star’s pastel-blue Oscar de la Renta high-low gown with metallic flowers was surprisingly one of the more subtle, safe pieces on the red carpet. She reflected the silver in the dress with her Aquazzura pumps. She looked lovely with her sideswept waves yet something about this ensemble registered as too precious for Manuela.

Silvia Abascal: Nixing a gown, the actress took an edgier angle in a Stéphane Rolland Spring 2015 Couture white jumpsuit with golden sash embellishment paired with stacked Christian Louboutin shoes for added height. Carrera y Carrera jewels added a Spanish touch. In theory, I loved the artistry of this look with the swoosh of the long cape. But I cannot get past the nude illusion panel that sadly compromises the design.

Nieves Alvarez In Stéphane Rolland Couture – 2015 Goya Awards

Nieves Alvarez In Stéphane Rolland - 2015 Goya Awards

Nieves Alvarez attended the 2015 Goya Awards held at Centro de Congresos Principe Felipe on Saturday (February 7) in Madrid, Spain.

Ruling this red carpet like she has on so many occasions, the model took center stage sweeping the red carpet with her Stéphane Rolland Fall 2014 Couture tuxedo-inspired gown featuring a mesh bodice and dual colour black and white-clouds-breaking-the-storm skirt with shredded organza appliqués.

Her supremely elegant look was styled with Bulgari jewels and a black Christian Louboutin satin bow accented clutch.

I have to say I much prefer the red carpet styling with the nude lip and wavy faux bob.

She really is the master at her craft; looking drop-dead gorgeous on every possible occasion.

Lady Gaga In Stéphane Rolland Couture – Bristol Hotel

Lady Gaga In Stéphane Rolland Couture – Bristol Hotel

It’s been a while since I paid any attention to Lady Gaga, mostly because I’m tired of her antics, but for once she looked good while stepping out of the Bristol Hotel on Tuesday (November 25) in Paris, France.

The singer, who was en route to Charles de Gaulle Airport to catch a flight home to New York, wore a red Stephane Rolland Fall 2014 Couture red jumpsuit accented with gold-fringed trims.

There was much ado about Amal Clooney’s Dolce & Gabbana frock worn at the airport, and like Amal, Gaga was not going to be content boarding a long-haul flight in a Juicy Couture velour tracksuit – remember those?

The open-back piece, styled with gold pumps, a bobbed black wig and red lippie, is relatively tame look by Gaga’s standards, especially as she’s been known to do long-haul wearing an Atelier Versace gown.

You may remember that Nieves Álvarez wore this same jumpsuit while attending the designer’s presentation back in July.

Solange Knowles officially tied the knot with long-time beau Alan Ferguson in New Orleans on Sunday (November 16) in front of 200 family and friends, including big sis Beyonce Knowles, Blue Ivy, Jay Z and Tina Knowles.

The bride wore a stunning ivory cape gown created by Humberto Leon for Kenzo. The stunning gown will no doubt bring plenty of Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford comparisons; however, she makes this look her own with the Jill for Lady Gray cuffs, bright red lips and teased to new heights ‘fro.

Megan Montaner In Stéphane Rolland Couture – ‘Dioses Y Perros’ Madrid Premiere

Megan Montaner In Stéphane Rolland Couture – 'Dioses Y Perros' Madrid Premiere

Megan Montaner attended the premiere of her latest movie, ‘Dioses Y Perros’ in Madrid, Spain yesterday evening (October 7).

I was not a fan of Stephane Rolland’s Fall 2014 Couture collection, but then Nieves Alvarez and Juana Acosta made me have a change of heart – but then this happened.

Sadly, this looks like a ‘Project Runway’ challenge gone horribly wrong; I’m afraid there’s nothing graceful, elegant or appealing about this look.

The star appliqués are very random, especially the gold one, and the shoes from the same collection are too heavy and frankly ugly. There is nothing I would save from this rather unfortunate look.

Juana Acosta In Andrew Gn & Stéphane Rolland – San Sebastian International Film Festival

Juana Acosta In Andrew Gn & Stéphane Rolland - San Sebastian International Film Festival

Juana Acosta continued her jury duty while attending a premiere during the San Sebastian International Film Festival this weekend.

‘Murieron Por Encima De Sus Posibilidades’ premiere: The actress wore an Andrew Gn Fall 2014 look. I love the lightweight feel of the look, plus the texture given to it via the feathers; however, it would’ve been interesting to see this look styled with accessories other than black.

62nd San Sebastian International Film Festival closing ceremony: On Sunday (September 27) the actress stunned again, this time wearing a Stéphane Rolland Couture white knit cape gown with appliqués in blue, silver and black at the hem of her skirt which, along with the cape, really bring this look alive. I didn’t ever think I would be so enamoured with a knit dress on the red carpet, but I’m floored. She perfected the the look with Baccara jewels, swept back hair and a dark-berry lip. Do you agree, or can you never get behind a knit dress on the red carpet?
