Starry Night at Spain’s Goyas

Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffith and Salma Hayek attended the country's equivalent to the Oscars.

STARRY NIGHT IN MADRID: Hollywood gave Sunday night’s Goyas, Spain’s equivalent to the Oscars, a touch of class. Antonio Banderas — up for Best Actor — lost out to José Coronado — in Armand Basi — but wife Melanie Griffith swept into the Palacio de Congresos in Madrid in a deep crimson ball skirt and matching opera coat with elaborate flower motifs. She said she picked it up at a Beverly Hills boutique. Wearing a pin-tucked Gucci dress the color of ripe eggplant, Salma Hayek also missed out. Elena Anaya, in a white goddess gown by Lanvin, took the Best Actress Award for Pedro Almodóvar’s “The Skin I Live In.” Behind dark shades and tieless, Almodóvar, who seems to have settled his differences with the Spanish Film Academy, sat front-row center between “Skin” star Banderas and François Henri Pinault, Hayek’s husband, who wore an ink-blue suit by YSL. The red-carpet crowd included actress Goya Toledo in a shapely pale and beaded floor-sweeper by Elie Saab; Victoria Abril; Daniel Brühl; Almodóvar veteran Marisa Paredes in shades of blue-green; and iconic Spanish film director Carlos Saura, whose next project “33 Days” stars Banderas as Pablo Picasso.
