Flipcard – These Are The Top Met Gala Looks That Left Us All Gasping As Latinos Took The Pink Carpet

The biggest night in fashion came and went last night, but we still can’t get over how these Latinos brought high fashion to the pink carpet this year. The theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” formally in reference to Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, Notes on “Camp.” Celebrities showed up and gave us all of the playful campy vibes we could handle.

Believe that while many guests played it safe–including most men who showed up in black suits, these Latinos came to deliver.

Cardi B stole the show and wore the red carpet.

The carpet this year was pink, in homage to the playful theme. In Cardi’s Instagram story later that evening, we see her eating pizza and watching Met Gala coverage while shouting, “Thom Browne! Thom Browne!” at the TV. She, and the rest of us, are in love with the designer, too.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez captured the theme with all the elegance.

J.Lo wore full-length Versace gown and apparently, fiancé Alex Rodriguez asked his Instagram followers to vote between a pink or a black tux. We’re glad he went pink.

Maluma arrived at the Met Gala for the first time looking dashing, even though everyone ignored him.

Maluma understands fashion like nobody. Apparently, Celine Dion didn’t understand what the ‘camp’ theme meant until the last moment. Bravo, Maluma. We see you and we love it.

Camila Mendes and boyfriend Charles Melton were looking chic af.

“I feel like a nugget amongst chicken selects,” Mendes told W Magazine as she was prepping for the Gala. She’s wearing head to toe Prabal Gurung and real ostrich feathers!

Meanwhile, Tessa Thompson’s ponytail was an actual whip.

Needless to say, everyone is feeling like Paper Magazine in this tweet:

Dear @TessaThompson_x,
You could step on me. 
Sincerely,
The lesbian behind this account 

Indya Moore appeared to her first Met Gala in full camp regalia.

Facts: camp culture is queer culture, and our queer family showed up tonight. Billie Porter himself was carried by six men on a chariot into the show.

We were so excited to see MJ Rodriguez at the Met Gala for the first time!

And she was excited too! Check out her Instagram caption:

BIG SHOUT OUT TO GALAM

Salma Hayek wore tulle tutu’s around her arms.

She also had a crown in her high bun. We loved this elegant yet daring look for this kind of event.

Bestie Penelope Cruz wore a stacked skirt gown.

The color choices here are the furthest away from camp we’ve seen, but the longer you stare at the skirt, the more daring it seems. Of course, Cruz is as bella as ever.

Zoe Saldana gave us a sequin dress with orchids in her hair.

%40billboard15cd20cc70c638
@ZoeSaldanaFanP / Twitter

We love that it’s her eyeshadow that brings both the sequins in her dress and the bright purple flowers in her hair together. Brava.

Thalia made us all wonder if her moonlit gown was lined with an ode to starry space.

%40billboard15cd20cc70c638
@mtcjr81 / Twitter

Camp is all about sparking questions and intrigue. Thalia delivered and got us all excited about the rest of the pink carpet. Get it, Thalia.

Meanwhile, La La Anthony’s dress was inspired by that dinero.

The consensus is in: Latinos brought their A game and collectively won the 2019 Met. But this is all just appearances. Wait till you find out the drama behind the scenes.

Enjoy this flipcard!

Just In Time For Gifting Season: JLo and ARod Dropped An Affordable Sunglass Collab Collection With Quay Australia

Just as there is a separation between the church and state, so too, we’ve been told to set strict boundaries in business. “Never mix pleasure with business,” goes the saying, as old as time. And we all know that keeping friendly, or even worse, romantic, relationships with people with whom you do business is not always a good idea —Unless you’re the ultimate power couple, then by all means, mix it up, finesse us all and show us how it’s done. J.Lo and ARod are just that couple. And their venture into business together is off to a pretty good looking start.

Jenny from the block mixed business with pleasure on her latest collab with her sportsman partner Alex Rodriguez, except for her, the partnership was more like a good idea than a bad one.

JLo and ARod teamed up with Australian eyewear brand Quay Australia to create a range of glamorous statement shades that won’t set you back more than $60.

The couple shot the campaign for their collection in Miami—a place they both call home.

The singer and actress posed with the former baseball shortstop in a series of sultry, tropical-infused images to promote the couple’s sunglass collection. The dynamic duo shot the campaign in Miami. “It was really special to be able to shoot in Miami with Jennifer, she was the one who introduced me to Quay Australia,” said ARod in an interview with Elle. Lopez, on her part, told People how shooting in Miami felt natural, since it’s the place she calls home. “I’ve had a love affair with Miami for many years, and now it’s our city—it’s our second home,” she added.

ARod and JLo are the only couple who can color coordinate their outfits and still look stylish af.

The series of photographs feature the powerhouse couple coordinating looks in bright, bold colors giving them that #couplegoals look that many of us have tried and failed at achieving. “It’s always easy when we get to do things together,” Lopez told People about shooting the campaign. “We always wind up laughing out loud.” —couple goals I tell ya.

The shades are divided into two collections, but all the styles are unisex.

The dual collection is already shoppable on Quay Australia’s website. None of the shades cost more than $60, and while Alex and Jennifer have ‘his’ and ‘hers’ product pages, both ranges work pretty well on both men and women.

JLo gave her shades, witty names in Spanish while ARod chose more classic styles and names.

Instagram @quayaustralia

Jennifer’s selection is tad bit flashier —to be expected from the queen of the Bronx— they feature fancier, bolder hardware. Another detail we loved, is that J.Lo gave her shades, names in Spanish, like “La Reina,” “La Playa,” and “El Dinero.” Alex’s options though, are more understated and classic, the shapes come with a thin wire rim and they feature names such as “Poster Boy” and “Apollo.”

“I’ve followed the brand for quite some time and love how they are disrupting the eyewear category. I’ve never had a pair of sunglasses that fit so well and the fact that you can get high quality, polarized sunglasses for $50 is pretty great,” Alex said —and we couldn’t agree more on that price point remark.

The ‘Hustlers’ star first collaborated with Quay in March.

Instagram @jlo

When her first collab dropped —on the same month that she announced her engagement to Alex Rodriguez after two years of dating— J.Lo took to instagram to share the news and her love for sunglasses; “Sunglasses are my accessory of self-expression. I can wear them from the gym to the red carpet, and this line perfectly captures the sporty, but also sexy and glam vibe that I love!”

The brand has always been great at teaming up with celebrities to create glasses people want.

Quay Australia’s most recent A-list partnership was with Chrissy Teigen, who told Harper’s Bazaar that she really wanted to ensure her looks worked for all kinds of different face shapes and preferences. “I tend to lean towards oversized sunglasses because I don’t love putting on a full face of makeup every day.” This idea seemed to be kept in mind for J.Lo’s second Quay launch as well. Though there are lots of different small options available, we have to say, the big ones are still our faves.

Comprised of 18 styles, the line offers a wide selection of chic glasses – featuring bold shields, flirty cat-eye shades and classic aviators. Shop the collection at quayaustralia.com.

Luis Miguel Lives A Private Life And His Life Struggles Might Be The Reason He Is So Secretive

Luis Miguel Lives A Private Life And His Life Struggles Might Be The Reason He Is So Secretive

For as long as Luis Miguel has been in the music industry, he has incredibly private about his personal life. He rarely gives interviews or even attends award ceremonies. He’s been spotted eating at restaurants with hired staff to hold up sheets and umbrellas to block him entirely from cameras and other fans. Here are some things you might not know about the bestselling Latin music artist.

Luis Miguel was born Luis Miguel Gallego Basteri, named after bullfighter Luis Miguel Dominguín.

@breluvmusic / Twitter

Born on April 18, 1970, that makes the singer only 48 years old. He’s almost a full year younger than Jennifer Lopez, but his crooner status somehow puts him at viejo status in my book.

He wasn’t born in Mexico, and neither of his parents is Mexican.

“He has been quite a ladies man.”Digital Image. Quemas Mamas Latinas. 12 December 2018.

That’s right. He was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and neither of his parents is Mexican. According to the Netflix/Telemundo series documenting Miguel’s life, his father conceived of a plan to get a fake birth certificate and ‘market’ his son as Mexican.

Miguel’s father actually moved him to Mexico to market toward Méxicanos.

@lmxlm / Instagram

Miguel has absolutely embraced Mexican culture (and Mexico has embraced him). He’s perfected the artistry of mariachi, and he’s currently on his ¡México Por Siempre! tour.

He was born on April 18 but celebrates his birthday on April 19.

@infobae / Twitter

His mother was a famous Italian actress and his father was a Spanish singer (Luisito Rey) born in Cádiz. His father didn’t register him with Puerto Rico’s Civil Registry until the following day, so his birth certificate is dated April 19. Que raro, no?

Miguel’s mother mysteriously disappeared when he was 16 years old.

@InfobaeAmerica / Twitter

Her whereabouts are still unknown, but there are many a Reddit thread that theorize that Luisito Rey killed her after she uncovered some dark secrets; that she flew back to Italy and has been in a psychiatric hospital ever since; that an indigent Argentinian woman might actually be the living Marcela Basteri.

Miguel’s father stole mad money from him.

@musimerides / Twitter

Miguel’s father was also his manager and the ultimate villain. Luis Miguel’s godfather also happens to be a renowned psychologist who has described him as a psychopath and abuser. We know he was an alcoholic and drug addict, and after Miguel fired him as a manager, he drank himself to death by 1992.

It all started when Miguel was just 11 years old.

@intrusoslared / Twitter

The story goes that the family was about to go bankrupt and homeless when Miguel’s father convinced telenovela star Andrés García to let Luis sing a Tijuana club. After the crowd fell for him, Luisito Rey saw his son as a meal ticket.

Miguel’s father made him watch and analyze every movie, recording, and performance of Elvis Presley.

@ZelindaKay / Twitter

By the time Luis Miguel was 11 years old, he released his first album, Un Sol, under EMI Records. It almost immediately became a gold disc.

His father was so obsessed with Miguel’s success, he even drugged him with ephedrine.

@korybabs / Twitter

The Netflix series shows how young Luis Miguel was worked around the clock to study music, and record songs. As a young boy, he passed out from exhaustion and side effects from the drugs.

Luis Miguel is the only Latin singer of his generation to not crossover into the English-language market.

@musicapop30596 / Twitter

Ricky Martin’s entrance into the “Latin Explosion” of the ’90s didn’t get to him. He only ever sings in Spanish.

Probably because he was pioneering his own market explosion: Bolero Pop

@lmxlm / Instagram

In 1991, his career exploded when he released Romance, an album of boleros remade for the modern world. He followed that album up with Segundo Romance.

Luis Miguel’s voice can span three octaves, 6 notes.

@lmxlm / Instagram

The press loves, to call him the “Latin Frank Sinatra.” Luis Miguel’s voice has topped charts in Pop, Mariachi, ballads, and so much more.

Sinatra personally invited him to record a duet album that would be his last.

“He did a duet with Frank Sinatra.” Digital Image. Quemas Mamas Latinas. 12 December 2018.

Luis Miguel’s own father used to blab about how Frank Sinatra wanted to record La Gran Ciudad together back in the day, but that was never true. Luis Miguel would be the only Latin star that Frank Sinatra sang with.

Luis Miguel speaks fluent Spanish, English, Italian, and Portuguese.

@korybabs / Twitter

If you only speak English and Spanglish, like me, todo bien. Don’t let that hit you too close to the ego. Todavía somos Latinxs.

Miguel has never been married, but he’s dated the best of the best.

@Trends_Zone / Twitter

Yup. Mariah Carey and Luis Miguel were an item for a while. Who else? Oh, just Salma Hayek, Sofía Vergara, Daisy Fuentes, Aracely Arámbula and Myrka Dellanos. Casual.

Today, he’s been seen with his showgirl, Mollie Gould.

@holamexico / Twitter

But, again, Miguel’s life is private so we can only speculate. He has been seen holding hands, having dinner with, and glowing with the 19-year-old California native.

Miguel has three children.

“LuisMi has three kids, but has never been married.”Digital Image. Quemas Mamas Latinas. 12 December 2018.

His oldest daughter, Michelle Salas, was born when Miguel was just 18 years old, but he didn’t acknowledge her as his own until she turned 18 years old and they took a DNA test. Today, they have a good relationship.

Miguel also had two sons with actress Aracely Arámbula.

Miguel is a self-taught sommelier and has his own wine label.

@VinosDeAmerica / Twitter

It’s a Cabernet Sauvignon, the only wine worth drinking, IMHO.

The rumor mill has it that Luis Miguel is suffering from some health problems.

@lmxlm / Instagram

He was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in April 2010ds and has canceled concerts and tours since then. Sometimes, he’ll appear on the stage for just a few minutes before calling off the concert and being forced to pay in the six figures for breaking a contract.

Last year, he surrendered to a federal arrest warrant.

@lmxlm / Instagram

He was ordered to pay over $1 million to his former manager, William Brockhaus, and the judge even ordered him to surrender his 2013 Rolls Royce. He was released by the U.S. Marshals the same day he signed over that car.

Luis Miguel was the first Latin singer to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

@carlosyegros1 / Twitter

He was also the youngest male singer to receive a star at the time. He’s won 5 Grammys, 6 Latin Grammys and 11 Lo Nuestro Awards. And the guy is still 48 years young. Keep it coming, Luis.
