Eva Longoria’s 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards Hosting Looks

Eva Longoria ALMA Awards 2013 copy

Following her Zuhair Murad red carpet look at the 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards, Eva Longoria commenced her co-hosting gig with Mario Lopez, where she proved she was the ultimate quick-change artist—and a fashionable one at that. The glam chameleon showed off not one, not two, but a lucky seven looks, some of which even managed to venture outside her standard style box.

Elie Saab: Shining brightly in an Elie Saab Fall 2013 coral, cap-sleeve gown?, Eva dazzled in this beaded, embellished design that was radiating an Art Deco vibe. The only accessories needed for this dress, which sparkled from a mile away, were diamond stud earrings and a casually cool, wavy ponytail.

Randi Rahm: She also swept onto the stage in a flowing halter dress by Randi Rahm in the most engaging shade of emerald, which she attempted to match to her sandals. The rich, jewel-tone hue really captured my attention here.

Etro: Strutting out a look that was more her traditional style, Eva stunned in black, off-the-shoulder column dress from Etro’s Fall 2013 collection. The sharp, architectural structure of the plunging, V-neck bodice—and the fact that she didn’t clutter the design with unnecessary jewels—really made this look one of my favourites.

Jessica Alba In Juan Carlos Obando – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Jessica Alba In Juan Carlos Obando – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Jessica Alba was a presenter at the 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards, hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California last night.

The actress dazzled in a Juan Carlos Obando number that paired a white, long-sleeved blouse, with bows tied at the wrists, with a metallic, floor-sweeping skirt with.

The contrast between the effortless top and the more over-the-top, sparkling skirt was chic and refreshing, and keeps this ensemble safely away from try-hard territory.

She styled the look with an Edie Parker box clutch and ELAHN jewels, whilst wearing a bronzed smokey eye, a nude lippie and her ombre locks in voluminous crimped waves.

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?
