They are the most prestigious beauty awards in Spain and one of the most anticipated annual events by brands and journalists, since we can rarely coincide all in the same space at the same time. The Telva T Beauty Awards this year marks its 22nd edition by changing space, as the Ritz Hotel has become small. This year the party was celebrated with the classic tea at the Palace Hotel and we have to recognize it: we had a blast!
Actresses, presenters, well-known faces of the jet-set … Everyone was there and you can see them photo by photo on Telva.com along with a very complete report about the details of the party and the winners.
But we also want to tell you, because year after year we enjoy the hospitality of Telva and we love this date in which you breathe honey. It is not easy, since in that same room are the representatives of the most prestigious cosmetic brands on the market, the most sold, the most exclusive, the most elite and the most popular, along with doctors, estheticians, journalists from different media, pretty faces … One would think it is a tense and competitive situation. But there are no fictitious smiles, but many kisses, many reunions, eager to share a moment of celebration and joy. It is always like this, but in these moments of crisis it is much more appreciated. And to Active Beauty all this makes us very happy.
One of the keys that make these awards the most prestigious in the Spanish landscape is that they are chosen by an independent jury formed by 15 journalists specialized in beauty from different media. Some of them appear in the photograph.

Missing in the photo Myriam Serrano (Woman) and Mª Paz González Gabriel (Mía).
The gala had as a presenter the young actress Manuela Velasco, winner of a Goya for the film REC, which showed that she is much more than a beautiful girl, since she won those present with her sympathy and her facility to improvise.
