From Old Hollywood Glamour to Modern Slay: Latinos Steal the Spotlight at the Oscars With These Iconic Looks

Well, that’s a wrap on another awards season!

Let’s not talk about who should’ve won, but discuss who showed up to SLAY at this year’s Oscars. My first-generation heart is happy to see so many Latino artists on this red carpet! More than ever, the stars paid homage to old Hollywood glamour — and by now you know that’s what I LOVE.

Let’s start with the EGOT winner and QUEEN: Rita Moreno

In a Badgley Mischka dress paired with velvet gloves and a gold timepiece, Moreno showed true Hollywood glam at the Oscars ¡AMO! And with that dark pixie cut, it’s giving the iconic Chita Rivera. Queen referencing queens—a moment!

America Ferrera in Versace

America Ferrera

America, ma’am, the silhouette in this Versace dress is everything I ever wanted. The team working tirelessly to make the chain mail fabric the perfect shade of pink was definitely worth it because you were GLOWING! Also, thaitst monologue deserved it’s own kind of award. Ferrera also paid homage to her collaboration with Covergirl, using their products to ensure her glow at the Oscars.

Miss Becky G, proved who was the real MAMIII at the Oscars

Becky, seeing you on the stage filled me with pride. You’re giving film noir vixen in 2024. Everything was on point: the hair, the makeup, the smile. The performance was also one for the books.

Eva Longoria was Flamin’ Hot

This is giving rich tía and I want to be her sobrin@ just to play in her closet. This is a woman who gets things done, and this dress is a clear representation of the woman Longoria is: beautiful, strong, and brave.

Xochitl Gomez in goddess vibes

Xochitil Oscars

Girl, you were looking like you came floating down from the sky above. The burgundy is a color we’re going to be loving this season. Trust me, no matter what shade of Latino you are, WEAR THE BURGUNDY!

Anya Taylor-Joy, mija, leave some for the rest of us!

You did not come to play with a reinterpreted version of Christian Dior’s exquisite VENUS DRESS. I mean, can you expect anything less from the girl who has Dior at her disposal?

Lupita Nyong’o can do no wrong

She knows what works for her, and this blue is epic, mainly because it’s reminiscent of the dress she wore when she won an Oscar 10 years ago. We’re here for it.

Colman Domingo, SEÑOR…por favor, yo tengo novio

Can we please normalize men wearing tailored boot cut trousers and boots? This man knows how to accessorize tastefully, even with the ring of the real-life Bayard Rustin, whom Domingo played in “Rustin” (which he was nominated for).

Sorry, I know muze, I got distracted…

But let’s not forget about the Vanity Fair After Party

The stars who didn’t go to the “Big Event” still got dolled up and headed to the party because that’s actually where you want to be seen.

Camila Mendes, oh darling!

This Tamara Ralph dress is a dream, a work of art. PERO, Mija, it’s a party, leave the train at home. I would have made it short and ditched the train to avoid people stepping on it. I don’t see it as practical for a party. But that’s me nitpicking a beautiful look.

Cardi B… another day, another slay, dripping in jewels

Es que ¿DIME A VER? She gives ICONIC every time she steps outside the house. Versace knows how to make a party look. Kollin Carter, her stylist, always does a great job of putting her into stunning archival pieces. This one is Versace Atelier Spring/Summer 03′ “Mysterious Midnights.”

Jessica Alba, HONEY!

You shined in Tamara Ralph’s silver sequined dress and then quickly changed into a Zuhair Murad black sheer number. It’s iconic. Take notes, muzes—this is CEO behavior. You take the picture with the dress you can’t move in, walk in, have your assistants wait for you to change into a second dress, and YAS!

The overall consensus on Oscars fashion?

Overall, the makeup was great. There were beautiful complexions and siren eyes everywhere, muted blush in corals, and nude lips—nothing major, but what caught my attention was the hair of all these muzas. Old Hollywood hair with a modern wave, achieved with less volume and more texture. I’m sure tutorials on how to achieve this look are going to pop up everywhere very soon, so stay tuned.

Like honestly, aquí HAY GUSTO! We know how to dress when we step out. Our stars are SHOWING UP AND OUT, serving us looks after looks. Yo no sé tú, pero yo me siento bien representado.

XoXo, Your Fairy Godmother,
