The spirits were high in the first Latin Grammy red carpet in two years, after 2020 was interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. Reflecting the renewed spirit, pastel hues, asymmetries and shine abounded.
The pink stood out in the suit Sofia Reyes, who arrived with a metallic dress, as well as in the ruffled tulle dress by Roselyn Sánchez, one of the hosts of the night along with Carlos Rivera and Ana Brenda Contreras, and the delicate dress combined by actress Sofía Carson with a small coat of feathers.
For its part, lilac could be seen in María Becerra’s electro-gothic dress and in Diego Torres’s velvet jacket. But if anyone captured glances in that color, it was Mon Laferte, who proudly wore her pregnancy belly with a tailored suit with the air of a “zoot suit”, whose lapels extended around a large oval opening in the belly.
Another predominant color was blue, in shades ranging from pastel to electric, worn by Paloma Mami, Marco Mares, Rivera and Nathy Peluso, the latter in a fake fur hat that contrasted with her sober black velvet dress.
Natalia Lafourcade It was all sparkle with a platinum sequined suit with floral embellishments and long fringes, paired with bone boots.
In a black safety pin came Christina Aguilera, whose fitted dress was topped with puffed patent leather sleeves and contrasted with her hair dyed auburn.
Juanes, who year after year has been daring more with his styles, wore a delicate gray satin suit with blue and purple sparkles.
There were also those who dared with headdresses like María Toledo, who finished off her black skirt and pants suit with a floral garland; and 3D elements like AleMor, who wore a large golden butterfly as a bib. Juliana Velásquez, meanwhile, combined her emerald dress with velvet gloves that when joined together formed the phrase “Find to heal” in italics.
Love was present with caramelized couples. Gloria Estefan, in a long-sleeved black dress with scarlet floral embroidery, and her husband Emilio gave each other affectionate kisses, as did the host of “Despierta América” Luis Sandoval and her husband Renato Pérez.
