Sensual elegance and innovation on the Latin Billboard red carpet
Women in sensual but elegant suits and men in innovative and risky outfits dominated the red carpet of the Billboard Latin Music Awards on Thursday at the Watsco Center at the University of Miami.
Mexican singer-songwriter Ana Bárbara, who has two musical numbers tonight, showed up in a long light pink tulle dress that had generous views of the torso side and a skirt with two deep slits.
The host of the gala for these awards, Jacqueline Bracamontes, opted for a similar color, although in her case with a miniskirt and a train.
Sofía Reyes surprised with a sober black dress with “cut outs” at the waist, in a similar description that applied to the bet of the Colombian Karol G, whose only concession to the extravagance was her blue hair.
Camila Cabello, who debuted tonight singing as a soloist on television in Spanish at the opening of the show, decided to wear a short red dress, which was to match her lips.
In red and black, there were also the Venezuelans Mau and Ricky, in well-cut suits, but made of novel fabrics, such as Mau’s faux crocodile skin texture.
Natti Natasha, who arrived in white, appeared in a suit that looked like a sensual corset to the waist, while at the bottom was a silk drape.
Among the most elegant were Cuban actor William Levy and his partner, actress Elizabeth Gutiérrez, who opted for a black tailcoat and she a mermaid-type cut in an aquamarine blue tone, respectively.
Also in navy blue but much more informal were the members of the Mexican trio Reik, while the Colombian Juanes surprised with a mustard-colored velvet shirt.
The Puerto Rican Bad Bunny, who has 22 mentions in 13 categories, including artist of the year, composer of the year and album of the year, paraded in a formally designed suit, with the irreverence that it was light blue.
The big surprise in fashion was the outfit of the Dominican rapper Tokisha, who appeared dressed as “La Santa Polola” , which, he explained, was a reference to a vagina.
The artist who has collaborated with J Balvin and Rosalía wore a complicated flesh-colored suit, which stretched like a kind of mantilla that wrapped her face, framed in silver-colored balls.
The Telemundo network, in charge of producing and transmitting the Billboards, announced 20 musical numbers during the awards ceremony, among which the tribute to the Mexican singer-songwriter Paquita la del Barrio , who will receive the award for musical career, stands out.
The Puerto Rican artist Daddy Yankee will be honored with the Hall of Fame award and the third of the special awards given during the Latin Billboards is the Icon award, which this year is for the band Maná, who tonight present a new version of his hit “El Reloj Cucú” , with new artist Mabel.
