Latinas at the Oscars

So for the past few months, I am sure we all heard of the lack of diversity at the Oscars not only this year but just in general. I am not one who likes to focus on the negative but am also a realistic person so with that said, lets talk some fashion. I want to take a little look at the history of the Latinos that have been able to represent our culture at the Oscars, but most importantly, WHAT THEY WORE!! In this post, I will post about the woman (no discrimination gentleman) it’s just that I prefer to look at fancy dresses instead of black suits.  Lets get right into it:

 

ACTRESS SALMA HAYEK ARRIVES AT 75TH ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS.

In 2003, Mexican actress Salma Hayek wore a Carolina Herrera gown for her leading role nomination in “Frida”. Salma to me is the prime example of the beauty of Mexican women and it clearly represents that in her elegance and classiness of a dress. Not only did Salma represent for Mexicans everywhere but she also brought along the Venezuelan- American fashion designer to the red carpet.

Catalina Sandino Moreno is a Colombian actress nominated in 2004 for her Best Actress role in “Maria Full of Grace”. She is wearing Roberto Cavalli for her 2004 Oscar nomination.

So there are a couple of other ladies to mention Adriana Barraza, Katy Jurado, Norma Aleandro, Berenice Bejo, Pilar Revuelta and Beatrice De Alba who have all been nominated in the past. The ladies above were my top dress picks for past red carpet moments. I can’t wait to see what the red carpet brings in 2016.

All of these dresses above are beautiful in their own way.
