Let’s Take A Look Back At The Epic Met Gala Gowns That Stunned Us Last Year

For Monday evening’s Met Gala function, Latinas destroyed fans with their slick and glamorous presence only to resurrect us all with their looks. In keeping with the theme of this year’s gathering— “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”—, Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Selena and more donned elaborate gowns, swathe trains and gold encrusted crosses and crowns.

Straight from the red carpet, here are the Latinas who brought fans of Ana Wintour’s biggest event to their knees.

Selena Gomez brought all types of angelic vibes to the Met.

Selena Gomez showed up at the gala looking like an elegant angel without her wings. The Mexican-American singer wore the delicate white dress by Coach with a metallic gold eyeshadow and a silver cross necklace. Bless this look forever and ever, Amen.

With this look, J.LO turned haters into her converts.

Puerto Rican, actress, singer (beauty mogul, designer, and everything else) Jennifer Lopez attended the event alongside her partner Alex Rodriguez. Lopez stunned the red carpet in an elaborate Balmain black dress studded with a cross made up of blue and red jewels. In short, the look was, in the name of the mother, the daughter and holy J.LO type of gorgeous.

The gilded look that Joan Smalls rocked from her head to her toes.

Puerto Rican model Joan Smalls attended the event in a fitted gold crown and a gilded crown topper. Can anyone else say holy be?

Argentinian model Mica Arganaraz attended the event with (From Left to Right) Anja Rubik, Anthony Vaccarello, Amber Valletta, Kate Moss, Charlotte Casiraghi and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Arganaraz wore Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent along with the other models at the event. Literally the most gorgeous fallen angel look I could have imagined.

Eiza Gonzalez channeled the sacrifices of a cloistered nun.

Eiza Gonzalez, the Mexican actress behind “Baby Driver,” wore off an irreverent nun inspired gown designed by Prabal Gurung. Her black and white gown featured bold cut-outs and shimmery sequence. Have mercy girl!

A look that spun Wonderman into a regal queen.

Original Superwoman Lynda Carter looked regal as hell in a gold crown and blue gown. Her structured gown designed by Zac Posen featured a small train and elegant sleeves. Now that’s Latina power to the holiest of powers.

Salma Hayek looked like the answer to all of our prayers.

The Mexican actress attended the event in a dress by Altuzarra and slick wet hair. The gown was completely embroidered and depicted a landscape scene of animals by a lake. Her simple dress and it’s picturesque depiction was a unique take on the gala’s theme and had all of us crossing ourselves in her name.

A look that could qualify a Latina for saintdom.

Most Marvel fans would fail to recognize superheroine Tessa Thompson in her outfit at the event. Dressed up to look like a Catholic priest, thoroughly dedicated Marvel fans will notice the Afro-Panamanian actress’s subtle salute to her Ragnarock character with her white makeup markings on her face. Sanctus, sanctus this look was holy.

Cardi B’s outfit could literally inspire a new religion.

Neilson Barnard/Getty Images

Of course, it couldn’t have been much of a surprise to fans when Cardi B showed up to the event looking bold and bodacious. The Dominican-Trinidadian Latina dove full onto the event’s theme with a dress by Jeremy Scott and a jeweled encrusted crown to match. She is the one, and only true queen of the Met TBH.

Giving us life in all gold.

Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen stayed in line with her signature sleek Met Gala style in a gold dress by Versace. According to her Instagram account, the dress was made with 100% organic silk that was ecologically dyed. And earth friendly peace be with you too Gisele.

These Latina Inspired Manicures are Just the Style You Need to Rock For Your Next Mani

Nail care has come a long way since the first manicure salon opened in New York in 1878. First considered part of the medical and hygiene industry, manicures were only for the rich who favored short, round nails as a symbol of wealth. Despite it’s origin, manicures are now widely available, inexpensive and more creative than ever.

Innovation in the nail care field has seen manicurists push the limits of what can be realistically done to nails. Bubble, sculpted and embellished nail art are seen both on the runway and in your barrio. Themed nail art is an especially popular trend and is designed to express individual style.

What better way to express that style than with nail art specifically designed for Latina-themed manicures?

These creative Latina-inspired manicures  have your girls asking where you got your nails did.
