There were lights (although also some shadows), many cameras and -frantic- action. One more edition – and there are 34 – fashion became one of the main protagonists of the Spanish cinema festival. And it did not disappoint. The looks chosen by directors, actors and actresses to attend the Malaga event attracted flashes and close-ups at the doors of the Martín Carpena Sports Palace, where hundreds of Malaga residents braved the bad weather ready to not miss a detail of the outfits. On the national red carpet par excellence – the second this year after the Feroz Awards – proposals for all tastes paraded. Some bright ones, like the dress of Penelope Cruz of 3D flowers signed by Ralph & Russo. Without a doubt, the most romantic of the night. Perfect too Nieves Alvarez -with a total green look by the Italian Alberta Ferreto- o Paz Vegawhich had one of its most successful carpets at the Goya in recent years with a white long-sleeved sequined model – sober as well as elegant – that also fit like a glove.
Passing the fashionista exam was not an easy task. Specialized critics are demanding and unforgiving, which turns the coveted list of best dressed into a record of achievements that It requires good taste, sense of smell and a team of good advisors, stylists, makeup artists and hairdressers.. Every piece counts. They know well about it Maribel Verdú -who this time opted for a black and gold design that was finished off with a youthful side braid-, Andrea Duro -very pretty in an asymmetrical sequin dress from Philosophy- or Silvia Abascalwho despite not showing off his best look this edition (the 2019 Marchesa was very difficult to beat) knew how to defend a sophisticated design by Elie Saab.
It is worth highlighting the high level of the outfits with which the guests from Malaga made the parade, who gave a lesson in good taste. Especially impeccable Maria Barranco with a floral print dress in nude, light blue, yellow and metallic tones with a maxi bow on the back. She appeared just as radiant Mona Martinez, nominated for best supporting actress for ‘Adiós’. The actress was radiant with a light blue gradient paillette design by Alberta Ferreti.
To celebrate that local fashion finally managed to gain a foothold (albeit timid) in Carpena. Thus, models by haute couture designer Rafael Urquízar paraded on the carpet. The Malaga actresses wore them successfully. Adelfa Calvo and Laura Baena.
And from outstanding… to failures. And there is no carpet without eccentricity and in this edition one of the protagonists was Oscar Jaenada who showed up with purple glasses that were totally out of place. The Javis (Javier Ambrossi and Javier Calvo) once again attracted attention with their striking ‘outfits’ – matching by the way – signed by Lanvin while Eduardo Casanova caught everyone’s attention with a white morning suit, with asymmetrical lapels, silk sash and Mans Concept cape. She completed the risky look with plumeti gloves and ankle boots.
