23rd Jose Maria Forque Awards

The 23rd edition of the Jose Maria Forque Awards were held on Saturday (January 13) in Zaragoza, Spain, where the dress code was quite varied among its attendees.

Goya Toledo: Wearing her favoured designer, Elie Saab, Goya relied on the intricate embroidery of the bodice to add a sense of glamour to the gown that was quite neutral in colour. Embellished accessories attempted to add a sense of sparkle to the look, but she could have done without the ribbon choker. We expect her to wear Elie Saab at the Goya Awards on February 3, so I am looking forward to what she brings to the red carpet there.

Juana Acosta: Even though we’ve seen Tilda Swinton rock this Chanel Fall 2017 jumpsuit, I didn’t mind its second showing here. Opting for a girly-chic approach, she styled the classic-cool piece with a ribbon ponytail whilst celebrating its cropped proportions that showed off her Jimmy Choo sandals.

Dafne Fernandez: I wanted to like this Fernando Claro suit, but it was missing some of the polished structure that makes these menswear-inspired looks so sleek and smart. The taupe colour was also a bit bland, especially with her shoe choice. Not even the brassy Jimmy Choo clutch could enliven it.

Hiba Abouk: Cut dangerously low—and dangerously high—this Balmain raw-edged gown was something of an eyeful. Aquazzuara ‘Zandal’ silver sandals were an odd choice with the gold buttons.

Maribel Verdu: I can see where Maribel was going with this Temperley London Spring 2018 ruffle gown, brightened with colourful embroidery. But, it seemed to lack the structure and shaping that would have greatly helped its silhouette. Yanes jewels were fine, but she should have lost the watch.

    Pains me to say this, but what a poor Spanish RC event. Meh.

    Juana if I had to pick a winner here. However, Spanish events are usually better than this.

    I really cant say any of these are working. I find them all either dull or just awful.

    Juana looks incredible! I dare say she wore it better than Tilda.

      +1. I like this so much better on Juana. Maybe it’s because it seems more seasonally appropriate now but over all Juan looks great.

    Juana Acosta never disappoints. Love everything about this jumpsuit and the way she styled it. BDOTW contender.
