There are many people I was excited to see return to the red carpet following the pandemic.
The Spanish model, crowned Best Dressed of Decade, is the one person you can always rely on to bring high glamour to any European Film Festival. Even when she’s just spotted walking about the city.
Our first sighting was upon her arrival to the Excelsior Hotel for Venice Film Festival 2020 wearing an Alberta Ferretti Resort 2021 dress which evokes an undeniable air of ethereality thanks to the chiffon fabrication.
Sheer the dress may be, but the model presented a more conservative approach with a bandeau and tonal navy underwear.
Accessorizing has always a huge part of why we love Nieves.
On this occasion she picked a baby blue Alexander Wang x Bvglari bag, with a selection of Bvglari jewels and shades plus Christian Louboutin sandals.
For most, a flowing chiffon maxi dress would’ve sufficed for lunch, but clearly it was a power lunch considering impact of Nieves’ second look which was also from Alberta Ferretti.
I love how the sleek vertical stripes add dimension and character to this suit, while its menswear-style fit adds a very modern touch.
The blazer is the hero piece here. I feel that it would bring a unique style to pretty much any outfit.
A black Commando crop top, Aquazzura sandals and another striking red Bvglari bag – which was also a power player here.
And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The ‘Padrenostro’ Venice Film Festival premiere on Friday (September 4) evening.
What a fiery display it was.
Rounding out a trio of Alberta Ferretti looks, the model definitely saved the best to last.
I’ve always had a penchant for this style of ombre design which feels like storm brewing, or in this case, a volcano erupting.
What sells this look?
The Alberta Ferretti gown, the Bvglari jewels?
All of the above, but most notably that S shape she makes with her body to sell this look from every angle.
Thanks to Will for recalling that Sandra Bullock wore this same gown to the 2007 Met Gala. This piece really stood the test of time. Even better today than it was back the.
