Spanish model Elen Rivas arrived at the Battersea Evolution near the Chelsea Bridge Entrance in London on November 26 for the defining do of the Brit social season – the British Curry Awards.
Named after the nation’s most-loved dish (statistics revealed that it was the number one take-away item in England), the awards show honours the best eateries in the country. Politicians, Brit celebs, sports people and business folk convene once a year for a black-tie event which we suspect is followed by a dinner featuring loads of curry!
But back to the lovely Elen.
What she wore:
Steel grey number

She was elegant in a steel grey dress with an interesting peplum silhouette formed by ruffles down the sides of the skirt. The color is season-appropriate, the peplum trend is revamped so it doesn’t look too tired and her styling of the look is excellent.
The outfit was accessorized with sequinned grey pointy pumps, a large pink box clutch purse and grey stud earrings.
Hair and makeup:
Sleek bun; dark eyes

The ballerina bun is a classic look and Elen used it to her advantage to add inches to her height as well as to maintain the modern, clean lines of her ensemble. Overwhelming the sophistication of the outfit with garish makeup would have been a big mistake and she smartly opted for only darkly-lined peepers while ensuring a natural palette for the rest of her face.
