Much like the carpet at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards, the biggest starlets in television and film were awash in gorgeous jewel tones, from ruby to emerald and amethyst. But the night’s hautest hue appeared to be sapphire.
Even though a Latina didn’t take claim one of the coveted Golden Globes this year, several of them illuminated the red carpet with their oh-so-stylish sheaths.
Here’s a look at this year’s best-dressed Latinas at the Globes:
She may have lost the Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture award to The Help’s Octavia Spencer, but Bérénice Bejo was the night’s brightest star on the red carpet. The 35-year-old Argentine star of The Artist arrived at the Golden Globes in an Emilio Pucci sapphire silk organza strapless gown. Bejo—who did pick up a Best actress statue at France’s version of the Golden Globes over the weekend— accessorized her gorgeous gown with a vintage navy blue Daniel Swarovski clutch and Chopard jewelry.
Golden Globe-nominee Sofia Vergara is no stranger to stealing the spotlight on the red carpet; she was one of the best dressed stars at last year’s Emmy Awards. The 39-year-old Colombian Modern Family star, who did two-a-days at the gym for the first time in her life to fit into her super-tight gown, flaunted her figure in a custom Vera Wang peacock strapless mermaid gown. Vergara paired the stunning sapphire gown, which mimicked ocean waves, with Harry Winston jewels.
Jessica Alba, who partnered with Channing Tatum to present an award at this year’s Globes, dazzled on the red carpet in a pale-lavender Gucci strapless gown with embroidered fish-like scales and a simple train. Alba’s daughter Honor likened it to a mermaid, “because it looks like a mermaid tail to her.” The 30-year-old half-Mexican American actress paired the eye-catching dress with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Bulgari jewels, and a Roger Vivier bag.
Lea Michele, who rocked the People’s Choice Awards just a few days ago, proved her mettle…or should we say metal…once again as a red carpet superstar. The 25-year-old part-Spanish Glee star donned an antique embroidered illusion dress from Marchesa. She capped off her sparkly dress with Jimmy Choo shoes and Lorraine Schwarz jewels.
Salma Hayek, who served as a presenter at this year’s awards show, isn’t afraid to take risks on the red carpet. The 45-year-old Mexican Puss in Boots actress proved that again in an architectural metallic gold and black Gucci dress with plenty of razzle-dazzle.
Nicole Richie, who has transformed herself into a true fashion icon, look glam and gorgeous in a stunning silver Julien Macdonald dress. The 30-year-old part-Mexican actress paired her exquisite dress with Jimmy Choo shoes. And, she finished her look with her very own House of Harlow bag.
