Rosario Dawson In Houghton – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Rosario Dawson In Houghton – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Rosario Dawson attended the 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards, held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California last night.

The actress was honoured with the Outstanding Commitment to Cause and Community award for her activism in the Latino community.

Classic and sophisticated, she accepted her trophy in a Houghton Fall 2013 strapless, black gown with a bustier bodice and ball-gown-inspired skirt.

A dress this simple could have been easily forgettable. But Rosario worked the design to more memorable effect, taking advantage of the pockets and simply accessorizing with colourful, gemstone earrings and a wavy long bob—and a radiant smile.

    I really really do not like this at all. The fit is awful in the bust and she has lost a waist line. I also like the runway length better. It’s too much fabric all over. Not doing her any justice.

    The dress is so big, she looks like she’s standing behind it and not in it. Maybe it’s just the angle, but weird.

    Boring dress, and it makes her look large. Her face is lovely though.

      Agree on all points.

            Yup. This just isn’t working for her.

    The fit in the waist area is a bit off, it makes her look wider, but somehow I can overlook that, because I think she looks great and well-styled with those earrings and the hairstyle.

    I think she’s the best dressed of the night. She doesn’t have much of a waist (neither does Eve Longoria) and I don’t see anything wrong with the fit. It is a simple classic dress that she has styled beautifully. I think she looks great.

    Stunning. BDOTW worthy for adding the colourful earrings and the radiant smile. Might be my favourite black dress of all time.

    Oh good Lord. If you look at the Getty Images, the side view is SO unforgivably bad. The bodice stands a good six inches away from her body…just when I was about to give this a pass. No, no, no.

      Agree! Really horrible fit. The earrings aren’t that special either. And for a dress with a built-in bustier bodice it should be giving her a waist if this was made properly but it’s not a good dress. Missed opportunity to impress.
