One to Watch: Model and TV Host Nieves Alvarez

Nieves Alvarez may not be a household name yet, but her fashion-forward resume speaks volumes. She's worked as a model for several years and recently hit the runway for Stéphane Rolland during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Fall 2013. This rising style star made a big splash at this year's Cannes International Film Festival and even hosts her own Spanish TV fashion show.

The model and TV host always stands out at whatever event she attends. Back in June of last year at Glamour magazine's 10th Anniversary Gala in Madrid, Nieves impressed in a black embroidered Giambattista Valli Spring 2012 Couture dress styled with Pandora jewelry, a Talavera clutch and Christian Louboutin Lady Max spiked sandals. She selected a dynamic printed Juanjo Oliva Spring 2013 chiffon gown for Madrid's Cartier Exhibition Gala Presentation in October 2012. Nieves wrapped up the look with a Yves Saint Laurent fur stole, Pandora jewels and a black Swarovski clutch.

Emilio Pucci was the source of her blue embellished Fall 2012 dress at the Vogue & Mario Testino party the following month. More Pandora gems, an orange clutch by Moschino and teal Christian Louboutin bow-accented sandals all served as accessories. Nieves absolutely stunned at the 2013 Goya Awards in February courtesy of Stéphane Rolland. The designer’s glamorous Spring 2012 Couture creation included a long sleeve black top with red rose appliqué as well as a layered ivory skirt and was accented by Chopard jewelry along with a black Christian Louboutin clutch.

It was a black Zuhair Murad Resort 2013 dress with lace detailing for the Sony Mobile Gala Premiere in March. Nieves introduced some color with coral Christian Louboutin Pigalle Spikes pumps. She also opted for coral at the Condé Nast Traveller Awards 2013 in April. Her bright Gucci Spring 2013 embellished tunic with keyhole detail was paired with matching pants, Bulgari jewels, a studded Christian Louboutin clutch and green Manolo Blahnik pumps.

When it came time for the premiere of Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian) at the 66th Annual Cannes International Film Festival in May, Nieves relied on Ralph & Russo Couture to craft this outstanding strapless red gown with gazaar bustle. Christian Louboutin was behind her gold clutch and sandals, while her sparkling jewelry came from Chopard. She looked red hot later that month at the 2013 Life Ball in Vienna decked out in an embossed long sleeve Roberto Cavalli gown. Nieves polished off the fiery outfit with gold accessories.

Michael Kors' striped Spring 2013 pieces have been popular with celebs and the Spanish presenter also made an impact in this nautical-inspired design at the Johnson's Baby with Aloe Vera press photocall at the end of May. Her red and navy crop top was complemented by a coordinating pleated skirt along with Christian Louboutin cut-out booties. Nieves was back in Emilio Pucci for the Yo Dona International Awards 2013 in June. Her Spring 2013 white gown featured an ornate gold dragon and was teamed with gold Christian Louboutin accessories.
