Sofia Vergara had tongues wagging at the Daytime Emmy Awards and she seemingly inspired many Alma Award attendees to wear rojo. Eva Longoria, Alexa Vega, Rocsi Diaz, Zulay Henao, and mommy-to-be Dania Ramirez all rocked the color perfectly. Though the color was right, I think Eva did herself a disservice by covering up her petite frame from neck-to-toes with her Zuhair Murad gown.
Winner: Dania Ramirez’s Grecian gown by Michael Costello is the perfect example of how to work a baby bump right. Her Neil Lane jewelry, which featured diamonds and delicate rubies, was the icing on the cake. Sadly we can’t bottle her maternity glow, so ladies should stick to using bronzer for a similar effect.
Lush Jewel Tones
As classic as black is for red carpets, I’m so glad that a lot of women opted to wear punches of color. Jewel tones were an Alma Award favorite worn flawlessly by Roselyn Sanchez, Fernanda Romero, Angelique Cabral, Judy Reyes, Daisy Fuentes, and Chaley Rose. These ladies looked as dynamic and distinctive as the gemstones that inspired their gowns.
Winner: David Meister has to have designed this dress especially for Daisy Fuentes. The Cuban-American beauty had all eyes on her when she presented Carlos Santana with the Outstanding Commitment to Cause and Community Award. I’m dying to know her beauty secrets or the location of the fountain of youth because she definitely has found it!
Wearing gold and silver looks, if done right, can do amazing things for the skin. Adrienne Bailon and Aimee Garcia were two of my overall favorites of the night and they wore gold and silver gowns, respectively.
So how do you know whether you will look best in gold or silver? If you have cool undertones like Aimee, stick to wearing silver. Ladies with warmer undertones should follow Adrienne’s lead and go for the gold. Picking the right metal for you can help your skin and face look vibrant while choosing the opposite could have a negative effect—so choose wisely.
Winner: Tie. Both looked so gorgeous that I can’t pick a favorite.
