The 2009 ALMA Awards celebrating the outstanding achievements of Latinos in entertainment takes place tonight, but will air in the US on Friday September 18.

For the first time in the history of the show, the ALMA Awards will broadcast during National Hispanic Heritage Month, a month in which all Americans learn about the Latino community and celebrate the contributions that Latinos have made to this country throughout its history.

Eva Longoria is the host alongside legendary actor George Lopez.

We can expect to see Eva wearing many stunning gowns on the night. Last year she changed 8 times during the night.

When she shot the promo for this event she wore a stunning baby blue Gustavo Cadile Resort 2010 gown, with a ruffled detail on the hip which is embellished with stunning jewels.

I adore the colour of this gown, it’s so right for her skin-tone but the gown deserved to be on the red carpet.
