Norma Ruiz In Donna Karan Atelier – Goya Cinema Awards 2014


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.

Norma Ruiz In Emanuel Ungaro – T de Telva Beauty Awards

Norma Ruiz In Emanuel Ungaro -  T de Telva Beauty Awards

Norma Ruiz attended the ‘T de Telva’ Beauty Awards held at the Palace Hotel on Thursday (January 30) in Madrid, Spain alongside Juana Acosta.

The Spanish actress wore an Emanuel Ungaro Resort 2014 look which was both complicated and intriguing.

I love the mix of colours, but what throws me is the overalls vibe I get from this dress and the styling of her hair. A slicked-back bun or ponytail would’ve help unclutter that neckline. Why make something already complicated even more so?

I can’t say I am too enamoured with the styling either, which includes a blue Chanel Spring 2014 clutch, a gold Bvlgari wrap-around timepiece and black Jimmy Choo pumps.
There is just too much going on.

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.

Norma Ruiz In Michael Kors – ‘The Physician’ Madrid Premiere

Norma Ruiz In Michael Kors - 'The Physician' Madrid Premiere

Norma Ruiz was back on the red carpet for ‘The Physician’ (El Medico) premiere held at the Callao Cinema on Thursday (December 19) in Madrid, Spain.

She wore a Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2013 bustier dress featuring a nude-and-black satin bodice and a black lace skirt.

The look was styled with a Moschino clutch, Yanes Young jewels and black Jimmy Choo shoes.

I love how each accessory complements a part of her dress. She looks chic and sophisticated, with a simple ponytail and smoky eyes completing the look.

You may remember that Olivia Munn and Harley Viera-Newton have both worn this dress before.
