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.

Aimee Garcia In Naeem Khan – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Aimee Garcia in Naeem Khan – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

‘Dexter’ darling Aimee Garcia was also at the 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California yesterday evening.

When she wasn’t posing with the Year in Television trophy for ‘Dexter,’ she was sauntering down the red carpet in a Naeem Khan Fall 2013 halter-neck gown.

Embossed in a Byzantine-inspired pattern, the silvery-grey design was slightly opulent and rather alluring with a body-con silhouette that transitioned into a trim, tulle trumpet skirt.

The ballet-pink hue of a Nancy Gonzalez croc clutch was a nice contrast, but her silver-lacquered nails matched the dress perfectly.

She further accessorized with a Sam Lehr ring and bracelet, Stuart Weitzman shoes and H. Stern purple gemstone statement earrings that were complemented by glossy, side-swept waves.

Melonie Diaz In J. Mendel – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Melonie Diaz In J Mendel – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Melonie Diaz brought a pop of colour to the red carpet of Friday night’s 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California.

Giving us an ‘orange is the new black’ moment, the actress wore a light tangerine J. Mendel halter gown with keyhole detail, a peplum empire waist and a thigh-high slit, which seemed rather unnecessary.

Even though she accessorized with a shot of shine via her metallic platform pumps and clutch, along with golden Marina B jewels, I still found this look to be a bit one-note. Perhaps a bolder lip would have brought some added flavour.

Peachy keen or not?

Roselyn Sanchez was also spotted on the red carpet at yesterday’s 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California.

The ‘Devious Maids’ star joined the rest of her sexy cast as presenters, where she took to the stage in a burgundy Gucci gown with an embellished neckline that flowed into a back-baring, cape-like detail.

A wide black ribbon waistband added structural detail to the column gown, as did her slick side updo.

Soffer Ari jewels, including stacks of bangles, cocktail rings and more delicate earrings, completed this va-va-voom look.

Eva Longoria In Zuhair Murad – 2013 NCLR ALMA Awards

Eva Longoria In Zuhair Murad - 2013 NCLR ALMA Awards

Before hitting the 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards stage for her co-hosting duties with Mario Lopez, Eva Longoria made her red-carpet entrance yesterday evening at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

Playing the ultimate lady in red, the actress sizzled in a curve-hugging, crimson Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 leather- and lace-embellished gown, which I actually preferred from the back.

Even with the sheer detail, the front of the mock-turtleneck, long-sleeve dress could have easily overwhelmed this petite powerhouse, so I’m glad she swept her locks into a messy updo to go with her sultry, smokey eyes and nude pout.

Did you like her red-hot attempt, or was it another expected entrance from this Latina lovely?

Eva Longoria In Alberta Ferretti – 2012 ALMA Awards Press Room

Eva Longoria wasn’t done wowing us on the red carpet at the 2012 ALMA Awards which she co-hosted with George Lopez in LA this weekend.

The actress looked breathtaking, and at least 6ft tall, wearing an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2012 gown.

She just oozes glamour in this velvet strapless gown with sheer geometrical panels.

I was slightly disappointed to see the Brian Atwood ‘Maniac’ pumps peeping through; as you know I’m a diehard strappy sandals gal.

What I’ve loved most about Eva during the ALMAs is that Ken Paves, or whoever styled her hair on this occasion, didn’t opt for any pageant queen hairstyles.

They tend to kill most of her looks.
