Bright and Beautiful vs Handsome and dapper: (L to R) Jacqueline Bracamontes and Ricky Martin--15th Annual Latin Grammy Awards, MGM Grand Arena Las Vegas

The 15th Annual Latin Grammy Awards were held this past Thursday night at the MGM Grand Arena Las Vegas. This was the sixth time the awards show was held here. The show was telecast on UNIVISION. Many top singers, songwriters, recording artists in the Latino Music world, as well as actors and TV presenters of UNIVISION were in attendance...

I always love seeing how the Latino stars dress to these big shows because there always bound to be some "colorful" sartorial choices; sometimes good and lots of times, one big HOT MESS. But that's what makes it fun and certainly not boring. As has been the case for a while now at the Latin Grammy Awards, the red carpet was actually Green (since it was sponsored by Heineken).
So without further a do, it's time to Recap my "Muy Bueno" (Best) and "Ayyy Mijo/Mija!" (Worst) dressed of the night--Let's begin with the Good:

Mantilla Diva: Duchess of Alba, Maria del Rosario Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart

Yesterday morning, the much-loved Duquesa de Alba (Duchess of Alba) Maria del Rosarion Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart passed away after a short illness. She was 88 years old. The much-loved Cayetana was the MOST TITLED aristocrat in the world. Rumor had it that even Queen Elizabeth II had to bow down to her! (not sure if that's true).

Fiona Govan of  BBC said: "The frizzy-haired eccentric aristocrat was one of Spain's most-loved figures whose antics filled the nation's gossip magazines and gripped the audiences of TV chat shows even during the final months of her long life. Described as the 'rebel noble', she spurned convention to forge her own path in life, following her passion for flamenco and, as a patron of the arts, amassing a private collection of masterpieces said to rival any in Europe.Her exuberant character, complete with squeaky voice and flamboyant dress-sense, enraptured Spaniards who followed the vicissitudes of her 88 years."

La Mas Bella: Ariadna Gutierrez, "Señorita Colombia 2014-2015"/Miss Colombia 2014-2015

Two nights ago, Colombia's top national beauty pageant took place, the 80th (yes, kids, the 80th!!!) edition of Señorita Colombia/Miss Colombia pageant for 2014-2015 in the city of Cartagena de Indias. Its winner goes on to represent the South American nation in the Miss Universe 2015 pageant (not the one happening in January 2015 in Doral Florida USA--that's Miss Universe 2014-- but the next one, in a yet-to-be-determined location and date).

Nick Verreos with FIDM L.A. Open House attendee--FIDM Los Angeles Fall 2014 Open House

This past weekend, I had the humbling honor of being the "Celebrity Appearance" at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM Fall 2014 Open House in the FIDM Los Angeles campus. Open House is a unique way for students thinking of  possibly attending FIDM to see for themselves what it's like to be a student at FIDM by checking out the campus, libraries, study spaces, classrooms. Open House attendees get to meet and interact with students, faculty and alumni as well.

Speaking of alumni, during this weekend's Open House, I also had the fabulous honor of hosting and moderating the FIDM Open House Alumni Panel (photo above). I had a great time and here's my Blog Recap with Lots of Pics of the day. If you were one of those lucky students and/or parents who attended...ENJOY!
