2018 Goya Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The 2018 Goya Awards on Saturday (February 3) in Madrid, Spain saw more stars in attendance in addition to Maribel Verdu, Nieves Alvarez, Penelope Cruz, and Goya Toledo.

Juana Acosta: I was swept away by this breathtaking Pedro del Hierro off-the-shoulder, navy gown that translated with such classic elegance on Juana. I love the textural intrigue, too, with the point d’espirit effect. Swarovski jewels and a Jimmy Choo clutch completed the glamorous picture.

Mónica Cruz: The illusion effect via side and back cutouts of this Ruben Hernández lace gown didn’t featured the most flattering placement—and also seemed far too dated.

Maribel Verdu In Christian Dior – 2018 Goya Awards

Maribel Verdu joined Nieves Alvarez, Penelope Cruz and Goya Toledo for the 2018 Goya Awards on Saturday (February 3) in Madrid, Spain.

I’m sure many actresses would’ve modified this Christian Dior Fall 2017 two piece look; opting out of the sparkly layer, so I love that Maribel didn’t go down the predictable route with this look.

When it comes to the styling however, I’m not so sure.

While the necklace gives the look a regal air, the clutch and furry sliders feel too causal for the look.

Penelope Cruz In Versace – 2018 Goya Awards

Although Penelope Cruz didn’t wear Versace at last month’s premiere of FX’s ‘The Assassination Of Gianni Versace’, she returned to the fashion house for the 2018 Goya Awards on Saturday (February 3) in Madrid, Spain, where Goya Toledo and Nieves Alvarez were also in attendance.

I like the pristine glamour of this white Versace gown that likewise packed plenty of sultry appeal in its side slit and figure-defining silhouette.

The inherent edginess of the beaded embellishment at the back—that likewise shaped a mock corset in front—not to mention the bold-shoulder structure were iconic Versace.

Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry completed the look. The red fan she carried was printed with #MasMujeres—“more women”—to support the campaign in Spain for more women in cinema.

Nieves Alvarez In Dolce & Gabbana – 2018 Goya Awards

Nieves Alvarez joined Goya Toledo at the 2018 Goya Awards on Saturday (February 3) in Madrid, Spain.

She’s never been one to shy away from bold expressions of glamour, and that was fully realized in this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2018 Secret Show gown styled with a Christian Louboutin clutch and heels.

While the rush of sequins and crystallization could have made for an overwhelming, heavy silhouette, not so for Nieves who pulled off the look effortlessly.

Given all the embellishment, I am glad she skipped the tiara from the runway, as that would have been far too literal.

I’d even go so far as to say that the I wouldn’t have missed the striking Bulgari archive jewels, so decorative was the design. Yet, she does nothing by halves so a bejeweled headband, earrings, and more were in order.

Goya Toledo In Carolina Herrera – 2018 Goya Awards

As Spanish actress Goya Toledo favours Elie Saab for the red carpet, I would have most expected her to wear the designer for the 2018 Goya Awards on Saturday (February 3) in Madrid, Spain.

Instead, she looked to Carolina Herrera’s Resort 2018 collection for inspiration—and a ball gown that delivered no shortage of drama, just not of the embellished kind.

The tulle tiers are what give the frock a playful girlishness, but the sleek bodice and black-and-white palette lend sophistication, as well.

I like her complementary soft waves here, too, to echo the fun femininity of the look.

You may remember this striking piece, as Mandy Moore wore it at the 2017 Emmy Awards.

Anna Castillo In Louis Vuitton – Goya Awards Candidates Meeting

In advance of Spain’s Goya Awards on February 3, Anna Castillo attended a Goya Awards candidates meeting on Monday (January 15) in Madrid.

There was a rebellious attitude infused throughout the Louis Vuitton Resort 2018 collection.

But, I like how the Spanish actress put her own unique spin on this metallic-embroidered, camo-inspired look, which had a slight ’90s hip-hop bent.

The cropped top added a fun, lighthearted touch, and I surprisingly didn’t even mind the metallic platforms to ground the look here.
