In a night that saw few Latina luminaries on the red carpet at this year’s Academy Awards, Salma Hayek managed to represent the entire community in fine fashion…
The 46-year-old Mexican actress, who served as a presenter at this year’s Oscars, even stood a neck above a majority of Hollywood’s starlets with her golden collar.
Here’s a look at the night’s best-dressed Latinas:
Hayek, who earned an Oscar nomination for her performance in Frida, wore a deep midnight blue velvet Alexander McQueen gown with a dramatic collar. The heavily embellished halter neckline, dripping in gold, was reminiscent of the ones worn in the 1990s.
