Last night, the Billboard Latin Music Awards were held in Miami and the red carpet—which featured lots of bright colors, shiny fabric, and boobs from every angle—as a whole was a delicious mess.

With her large bun, manicured nails, and cocktail ring on each finger, Adrianne Bailon, whom I recognize from past seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (she used to be Rob's girlfriend), is reminiscent of Sharon Stone in Casino, which is the height of good style, in my book.

Is Carolina Tejera wearing a Bob Mackie design? I was under the impression that he was the only one who was allowed to do this to women.

The unholy trinity of a nude allusion, tattered fabric and an ambiguous animal print that could easily be confused for tire marks leaves Angelica Celaya looking like literal road kill.

The only time you should ever wear dresses like these is when you have no choice in the matter, like when you serve as a bridesmaid: Vanessa Villela, Andrea Minski, and Rosanna Pena.

Tatiana Capote is like knocking on 50 and she definitely has a great body, but it's like, save the rib cage for the beach. You know? Paulina Rubio is wearing the top and bottom of a '70s prom dress. And, ugh, nice Billabong, Liz Gallardo.

One thing I'm proud of, as a Latina, is that our culture is usually cool about clothing that emphasizes our natural physiques. I really hate American fashion and the way it often emphasized NOTHING.. like those loose fitting boxy dresses and skirts that are so fashionable, lately. Adrianne Bailon's dress is awesome. It fits her body, shows off her curves, makes her look totally hot. Who cares if it's loud? I love it. And most of the other ladies wore similar dresses, which hugged their curves. Even if the fabric is cheap and shiny, I'll take that over the stupid burlap sacks people seem to love so much.
