Nieves Alvarez In Roberto Cavalli, Mango & Halston – Solo Moda

For her twelfth ‘Solo Moda’ programme, Nieves Alvarez started things off with a bang wearing a Roberto Cavalli Fall 2012 forest green embellished suit.

The suit with bold shoulders and flared pants was styled with matching Jimmy Choo peep-toes and a simple white shirt.

Keeping the green theme going, the host wore a black and green military-inspired Mango contrast panel dress with buttoned epaulette detailing for her second look.

I love her beige Jimmy Choo sandals and her Alexis Bittar cuffs which make her High Street frock look very expensive.

Nieves’ final look was a jade green Halston cape dress. Once again, it’s the accessories that make this look with red Mango pumps, a gold Marni necklace and Alexis Bittar cuff, ensuring that this look didn’t fall flat.

I love all three looks, but the Mango is my favourite. I would’ve gone with the Cavalli had she opted for a sexier blouse.

Miu Miu vs. Mango

Whilst browsing the Mango Fall 2011 Look Book one dress really stood out from all the others.

It was the terracotta floral print dress because it instantly reminded me a similar dress presented by Miu Miu during their Fall 2011 collection.

Mango has clearly been inspired by Miu Miu despite the fact that the material and length are different, plus the Miu Miu dress has sequin embellishments and accentuated shoulders.

Once in store the Mango dress will cost $69.90/€44.95/£42.90.

The Miu Miu dress, which Kate Moss wore on the cover of Vogue UK’s August 2011 edition, is available from Net-A-Porter US for $4,105 and
Net-A-Porter International for £2,480 /€2,860.

Olivia Palermo Attends Two Mango Shows In 4 Days

Olivia Palmero is the current face of Mango.

Free clothes don’t seem to be the only perk of the job Olivia attended a show in Moscow on Wednesday and by Friday she was in Shanghai attending another Mango show.

I’m sure seeing the same show might get bit redundant, but the free clothes and travel surely make up for it.

On Wednesday in Moscow, Olivia wore her favourite mustard Kurt Geiger Fashionistas Corso Como pumps with an animal print Mango top and skirt

Olivia enhances her look by adding sultry make-up.

I love her beige contrasting clutch and the red hot nails.

On Friday in Shanghai, Olivia wore a bohemian Mango ‘Frankly’ dress from the Spring 2011 collection.

I’m guessing she had written into her contract that she can accessorize her own looks because she opted out of wearing the runway brown belt; swapping it out for a tan belt.

A loose bun and a crucifix completed her look.
