WHO WORE WHAT?.....2016 Latin Grammys Red Carpet

 Jumpsuit Diva: Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad Haute Couture Fall 2016

The 17th Annual Latin Grammy Awards were held on Thursday evening at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. As usual, this is a big night for Latino/Hispanic artists and it was broadcast live on Univision. Being that it is the 17th year, the red carpet has gotten a little better in terms of what the stars are wearing; in the past, it was usually a Prom-and-Pageant Scene. Thank goodness that more stylists are being used and getting in the groove, influencing some of their clients to look more "Cannes Film Festival" and less like they are dressed to go to their nieces Quinceañera. But that still didn't stop some of the Latin Grammys stars from looking like they were in a Miss Venezuela pageant. 

Here's some of the Fabuloso and at the end, some "Ay Dios Mio!" clunkers...
Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad Haute Couture Fall 2016: Jennifer Lopez was performing with her former hubby Marc Anthony. during the 2016 Latin Grammys and she did a FABULOUS job. Before all that, she stepped onto the red carpet in this deep violet sequined jumpsuit from one of her favorite designers, Lebanese Couturier Zuhair Murad. The jumpsuit is from his Haute Couture Fall 2016 collection. If one were to order this, it would probably set you back about $85,000. It's hand made and made-to-order and each and every one of those beads and appliques, hand sewn. On the runway, the mode wore it with leather purple belt. I'm glad JLo didn't. Naturally, La Lopez looks fabulous, from head to toe (just look at the perfect length of that jumpsuit!

Jennifer Lopez in LaBourjoisie: For her performance, she wore this asymmetrical ivory sequin and feathered design from Kuwait-based brand La Bourjoisie by Antoine Salameh. The line is a favorite of Britney Spears as well as Miss Kendall Jenner, who just wore one of his dresses for her 21st Birthday bash. Not sure where he is getting his funding to create such expensive designs or high-profile press (maybe he's Kuwaiti royalty?!) but whatever it is, it's generating him fabulous pr.

Roselyn Sanchez in Gareth Pugh Spring/Summer 2016: The co-host of the 2016 Latin Grammys was the gorgeous Roselyn Sanchez. For her red carpet appearance, she wore this red dress from British avant-garde designer Gareth Pugh and his Spring 2016 collection. The model wore it as a one-shoulder look while Roselyn opted to give it her own unique off-the-shoulder touch. I though she looked muy bien! And kudos to her stylist for choosing a design from such an avant-garde designer--and one of his most simplest UN-avant-garde ones!

Roselyn Outfit Changer: Roselyn made several outfit changes during the evening which is of course, natural, since she is the Co-Hostess with The Mostest. Roselyn Sanchez wore the designs in the photos above including a white gown from Australian designer Alex Perry (center) as well as Anthony Vaccarello (far right). She looked fabulous in all of them. Roselyn was definitely one of the Best Dressed of the night.

Chiquinquira Delgado in Alejandro Fajardo: Former "Miss Venezuela Flowers Queen 1990" Univision TV host and partner to Jorge Ramos looked every bit a "Miss Venezuela" Red Carpet Diva in this powder pink colored ballgown from Venezuelan designer Alejandro Fajardo. The strapless gown featured obvious boning details and an attached overskirt. She looked beautiful and I also loved how she decided to go very modern and relaxed with her hair and makeup--to counterbalance the overt "Pageant"-like supergown. One of the best dressed!

Ariadna Gutierrez in LaBourjoisie Antoine Salameh: You might recall this gorgeous beauty--Ariadna Gutierrez. She was the "Miss Colombia" at last year's "Miss Universe" whom host Steve Harvey wrongly announced as the winner. Well, yes kids, she's still SUPER GORGEOUS and she attended the 2016 Latin Grammys wearing this ivory sequined-and-netting gown from Kuwait brand LaBourjoiesie by Antoine Salameh. This is the same designer that Jennifer Lopez wore during her performance with Marc Anthony.

Alejandra Espinoza: "Ale" as she likes to be called, was the first Nuestra Belleza Latina back in 2007. She hosts a Univision reality show and singing competition called "La Banda". I liked her golden column gown featuring tiny sequins and banding. The design had Art Deco-like details and fit her perfectly. I love that it was also the perfect length: See--NO shoes visible from the front! Her slicked back hair and makeup were perfecto!

Aleyda Ortiz in Stephen Yearick: Aleyda is yet another former "Nuestra Belleza Latina" (from 2014) and she's also a model, TV host and singer. I liked her blush colored sequined gown form Wedding Dress designer Stephen Yearick. It looked very Elie Saab Lite. The color was beautiful for her and that sequin applique work, exquisite. The only critique I had was how saggy her boobies looked; I just didn't like the look. She needed inner corseting to hold the "Hermanas" up.

Nastassja Bolivar: Here we have another former Nuestra Belleza Latina (from 2011) attending the 2016 Latin Grammys. She was also Miss Nicaragua 2013 (It's the Latin Grammys so you KNOW there's going to be LOTS of Pageant Ladies!). Nastassja wore a strapless gown from Rubin Singer, an Austrian-born designer based in the US who has done lots of costumes for singers such as Beyonce and Alicia Keys. I thought she looked chic and Gown Goth.

Angelique Boyer in Vero Diaz Mexico: French-born Mexican actress Angelique Boyer is girlfriend to the other Co-host of the 2016 Latin Grammys, Argentina-born telenovela actor Sebastian Rulli. She wore this interesting design from Mexican designer Vero Diaz. The ivory netting gown featured sequined appliques, a caplet and mini dress underneath. It was a lot but it kinda worked--kind of--in an almost tacky-licious way. I wish the bottom half wasn't that and instead just a beautifully elegant column gown. It just seemed to have almost everything-and-the-kitchen-sink. And yeah, those visible 8 inch wide horsehair trim at the hem is a gown trend I'd rather see die a timely death! Por Favor.  

Clarissa Molina in Alejandro Fajardo: Yes kids, we have another Pageant Gal. This time it's Clarissa Molina, "Miss Dominican Republic Universe 2015" and "Nuestra Belleza Latina 2016". She wore this white gown from Venezuelan designer Alejandro Fajardo. While I admire the super sexy silhouette (especially when you have Clarissa's body!)--and it fits her perfectly!--there's still a lot happening, distracting the eye. I'm just not sure she needed that super high side slit AND the jeweled sequins...

If there was no slit and no sequins, this would have been muy bien. But then, I would have also asked her to NOT wear those tacky black pumps. Ayyyy Dios Mio!!!

Uh Oh!----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Laura Paussini in Antonio Riva Milano: Italian singer Laura Pausini wore this black and white striped gown on the 2016 Latin Grammys red carpet. The strapless silk mikado gown was from Antonio Riva, an Italian designer known for his bridal designs. Honestly, I have a Love/Hate relationship with this gown. The me of 1993 would have LIVED for this gown. In fact, I might have designed something very similar to it. But, it's 2016, and I've learned a couple of things regarding designing and especially for the red carpet. This would have been a fabulous gown for a "Miss Venezuela" in 1993. But for the 2016 Latin Grammys, not sure.

Becky G in Walter Mendez Walter Collection: Singer, Rapper Becky G wore this dress at the 2016 Latin Grammys red carpet. The design was from Walter Mendez Walter Collection, a designer based out of LA. I wasn't a fan. This was very 1995 in it's micro-mini dress under an overskirt design. I get that Becky G is short and therefore might need some maximizing--with showing her legs and all. But, I think there are other ways of doing this. The golden gown featured sequined lace appliques that gave the gown a cross between a Mother-of-the-Bride look and Marie Antoinette High School Musical. On a good note, her date was hunky Sebastian Lletget, LA Galaxy soccer player. #JustSayin

Lourdes Stephen: Univision TV Host Lourdes Stephen wasn't a former "Nuestra Belleza Latina" winner but she wore a gown suggesting that she was! She wore this raspberry-colored sequined gown with a dramatic cape. I like the drama of it all but, it's just a bit too forced and Miss Universe-Meets-Sheikha Moza. It's Too-Mucheey for her.

Leslie Grace: Singer-songwriter Leslie Grace wore this to the 2016 Latin Grammys red carpet. Oh Leslie! Double slit and black panties. Mija! It's tacky-licious. On a good note: I do like her hair and makeup. And the fact that no stripper platform heels were worn. But otherwise, this dress looks like something a former Porn Star/Stripper would wear, for one of her movie premieres.

Maia Ocando: Univision correspondent Maia Ocando wore this getup from GLAUDI by Johana Hernandez at the 2016 Latin Grammys red carpet. The one shoulder copper-and-black zebra printed mini dress featured a ruffled neckline. Maia styled it with black Goth platform boots. One word: Yikes! This is neither fashionable nor Latin Grammys stylish. I'm guessing she was trying to go for a "I'm at a Music Event and Want to Look Cool!". Not so mucheey.

Chino (Jesus Miranda) of Venezuelan pop duo Chino y Nacho with his girlfriend Venezuelan Natasha Araos--I came across this photo of Venezuelan singer Chino (of "Chino y Nacho") and his apparent girlfriend, a beautiful young woman by the name of Natasha Araos. From what I gather, she loves posting photos of herself on social media and is a fitness fanatic, and well, this is what she wore for the 2016 Latin Grammys, a dress by Valentino Ferro. I get that she LOVES her perfect .00003 % fat-free body and works hard to attain it but...this gown is TRAGIQUE Tacky. If I didn't know better, I would have thought they were both porn stars. Seriously.

Jacob Forever: I had no idea who this fashion fool was. So...I Googled him. He's a former member of a Cuban Reggaeton band "Gente de Zona" and launched a solo career in 2012 and is very popular in Latin America and Europe. OK. Got it. terms of this fashion sense: Douche-Licious is the Theme. There are so many things wrong with this that I don't even know where to begin. So...I'll just leave it up to you guys to figure it out. Jacob Forever might think he looks cool here but in like three years, he's really going to be regretting it.
