French magazine Marie Claire held their Marie Claire Prix de la Moda Awards 2012 at the French Embassy on November 22, 2012 in Madrid, Spain, inviting several fashion industry professionals and A-listers including Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld, Spice Girl Mel B and American model and actress Olivia Palermo, who looked rather elegant for the evening…
Olivia Palermo looked elegant and quite statuesque in her long-sleeve black gown with simple, long, elegant lines, extending that elegance to her slicked back dark hair, completing the look with smoky eyes, tawny lips and red nails.
She also accessorized with a burgundy bordered dark metal clutch bag with a faceted gem shape, pearl studs in her ears, a Carrera y Carrera Gardenias ring and a chunky bracelet.
Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld attended in his black and white ensemble, complete with grey spats and black leather mittens, a touch of turquoise on his cravat completing the look.
Designer Agatha Ruiz de la Prada made quite a fashion statement in her sky blue three-quarter sleeve dress, embellished with golden hearts at the hem, while Laura Ponte wore ivory colored jodhpurs.
Former Spice Girl and performer Mel B attended with her movie producer husband Stephen Belafonte, looking lovely in her one-shoulder LBD (little black dress) and patent leather pumps.
Sandra Barneda and Nacha Guevara both chose deep green gowns, while Eugenia Ortiz rocked pink.
Spanish bullfighter Francisco Rivera looked dapper in his tuxedo and bowtie, while girlfriend Lourdes Montes glittered in her dark gunmetal grey gown.
Model Judit Masco too wore grey in the way of a slinky velvet gown, while Marina Castano chose grey chiffon…
Also attending the A in style were Amelia Bono, Rosa Tous, Manuel Martos, designers Elena Benarroch, Roberto Torretta and David Delfin, model Ariadne Artiles, Pelayo Diaz Zapico (loved the shoes!), Marta Robles, and Spanish actor Imanol Arias with his girlfriend Irene Meritxell.
