The 12th Annual Latin Grammys was burning hot Thursday night.
The red carpet sizzled Nov. 10 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev. Gorgeous Latina singers and actresses dressed in third-degree attire.
Shakira, who was honored as the Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year on Wednesday night, wore a stunning golden-caramel gown with jewel-encrusted bodice.
Sofia Vergara looked drop-dead gorgeous in an embellished, strapless silver gown with flowing curled locks; and Zoe Saldana shined in an emerald green sparkler.
The theme of the night seemed to be super sexy as many Latina singers and actresses opted for some quite revealing ensembles. Noticeable trends were cut-outs, thigh-high slits, trailing trains, and heavy sparkle.
Big winner, hip-hop duo Calle 13, just added fuel to the fire.
The Puerto Rican sensation, made up of members Eduardo Cabra (Visitante) and René Perez (Residente), took home a whopping 9 awards last night.
Sweeping the ceremony, Vistante and Residente added 9 Grammy Awards to their trophy case - totaling in at 19.
The night was a memorable one for the brothers, who broke the record for most awards won over a career as well as most awards won in a single night, according to The AP.
It's a triumph for music and art, said Joglar, the group's frontman, in Spanish after accepting the honor. For me, this is a gift I'm giving to everyone so that they can feel proud of their roots, of their homeland. That's really lacking here in the United States.
The group performed Latinoamerica, a song dedicated to the Latin American people, their culture, and their pride.
May this transport you to your roots, your streets ... and may you feel it here in your heart, Joglar said in Spanish before performing the song.
Calle 13, the Puerto Rican hip-hop duo acclaimed for its politically charged lyrics, Afro-Caribbean beats and raunchy dance anthems, emerged as the new darling of Latin music Thursday night, writes The AP's Christina Silva.
Latin music gains increasing popularity year after year. The Latin American community it vibrant, powerful, and prideful.
The Latin Grammys recently gained recognition in the fashion world, by none other than iconic fashion house Gucci.
Gucci, in recognition of the growth and influence of the Latin community, has launched an exclusive line inspired by the Latin Grammy Awards, according to FOX News.
We have great admiration for the important contribution Gucci has made to the restoration and preservation of cinema in recent years, and are naturally delighted that it has now chosen to extend those efforts into music through this new partnership with The Recording Academy, said Neil Portnow, President/ CEO of The Recording Academy and GRAMMY Foundation and Chair of the Board of the GRAMMY Museum.
With the increasing intersection between music and fashion, we are proud to collaborate with one of the world's most iconic and philanthropic fashion houses.
The line features two exclusive pieces, one of which is a bracelet to be given to emerging artists. The items will be available in stores within the next few weeks.
