Playing Iraq vet, helicopter pilot and sometimes-EMT Marisa Benez on NBC’s Trauma, which returns to Monday nights on Mar. 8, Aimee Garcia never gets to glam it up in designer dresses, diamonds, dramatic makeup, or daring hairdos. No wonder she was doubly thrilled to be at the National Hispanic Media Coalition’s 13th annual Impact Awards. Not only was she honored for Outstanding Performance in a Dramatic Television Series, she happily posed for the cameras in an Alice + Olivia strapless dress, Yves St. Laurent shoes, and Neil Lane jewelry.
