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...
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.
"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.
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!!!
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.

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.
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.
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. Anyhow...in 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.
