The colorful dresses and costumes with graphics and drawings flooded today the red carpet of the fourth edition of the Latin American Music Awards (Latin AMAs), which left a clear message about the important contribution of Hispanics and women to American society.
The Mexican Gloria Trevi highlighted on arrival at the Dolby Theater, located in the heart of Hollywood (Los Angeles), with a dress full of feathers that defended swashbuckling.
“Women should dress as they want without thinking about their age, or their weight, they should not hesitate to defend what they want because that’s where their strength lies,” said Efe Trevi.
The singer Becky G, on the other hand, chose a dress with black transparencies, a color associated in Hollywood with the #MeToo movement.
The messages also arrived written: Breaking with the glamor of these events, the actress Ana Lorena Sánchez opted for a white shirt with the phrase, in English, “there are no limits that women can not overcome”.
But not only the stars brought a clear message, the gala came the “dreamer” Astrid Silva, an undocumented immigrant covered by the Program of Deferred Action for Arrivals in Childhood (DACA).
The immigrant wore a blue dress with a call in defense of the “dreamers” painted on her skirt.
The men were not left behind in the demands and the Puerto Rican musician Elvis Crespo wore a yellow suit with birds and trees drawn on his trousers and the jacket he claimed symbolized the color that immigrants represent in the US.
For his part, the singer Nacho, nominated for one of the awards, wore a Versace jacket full of symbols and said that the Latin AMAs awards show that Hispanics are at the level of American artists.
The New Yorker Leslie Grace, meanwhile, dressed in a long dress also full of messages that spoke of power, courage and the rights of women. “We’re going to celebrate what we are: Women, Hispanics, immigrants, and we should be proud of that,” he said.
