Latinas Go To Washington

Whether it’s a sexy or flashy number, we can count on our Latina celebs to bring it to any red carpet and almost always make the Best Dressed list. But when it’s time to get serious and visit Congress, beauties like Eva Longoria and Shakira can cover up and rock more conservative looks too.

Here's a look at how versatile our Latina stars can be:

1. Washington: Eva Longoria

At a press conference for the National Museum of the American Latino Commission back in October of 2009, Eva Longoria wore a simple sheath dress in the power color of red.

2. Washington: Jessica Alba

In a basic white button-up, black cardigan and black slacks, Jessica Alba shakes hands with Senator Barbara Mikulski after a meeting on children's healthcare reform on May 7, 2009.

3. Washington: Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez toned down her usual over-the-top style for a nude-colored Victoria Beckham sheath dress with matching suede Louboutin pumps when meeting with Nancy Pelosi and members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus at the U.S. Capital on September 16, 2009. They discussed education in the Latino community and the historic college affordability legislation the House considered that week.

4. Washington: Shakira

Normally seen in belly-baring ensembles for her concerts, Shakira cutely covers up in a black tweed V-neck sheath when speaking at a news conference in support of the Education For All Act with Gene Sperling, Chair of the U.S. Chapter of Global Campaign for Education, on April 22, 2008.

5. Washington: Rosario Dawson
