Colgate Sonrisa de Revista

By Mercedes Sanchez

People en Español and Colgate

When People en Español asked if I wanted to style the winner of Colgate’s Sonrisa de Revista contest for the magazine’s annual 50 Mas Bellos party, I said, heck to the yea!

Lynchelle, photographed above, won a $1500 shopping spree and I was to help her find a dress for her red carpet appearance.

We headed to midtown in New York City to find a gown and shoes.

She tried on a couple of dresses, but these two were our favorites. What do you think of my selections?

Before going to the Bellos event, we stopped by a Colgate party in the Lower East Side.

Take a look at some of the photos below.

Best and Worst of the Latin Billboards 2014

25 04 2014

Latin Billboards 2014

By Mercedes Sanchez

I stopped by Telemundo NY’s Acceso Total to talk about last night’s Latin Billboards. I was a little surprised to see so many black and white gowns.

Here’s my list of the best and worst dressed– you can also watch my Telemundo segment below.

Best and Worst Dressed at Latin Billboards

Catalina Denis

Catalina Denis’ black, sheer gown was well executed. The sheer is definitely daring and sexy, but she makes it look elegant. I loved that she decided to go with a messy up do. A simple hairstyle was the right way to go because her outfit is anything but. She’s wearing Leonard Paris.

Gaby Espino

Gaby Espino may have been the best dressed. She was one of the few that grasped the fun theme of the evening. Her big, wavy hair was perfect along with her natural makeup and fitted dress. She was perfection.  Gaby’s wearing Gionni Stracia.

Roselyn Sanchez

Loved  Roselyn Sanchez‘  plum lip with her super chic high ponytail. The white gown is elegant and looks great on her, but I have to say that she almost made my worst dressed list because I don’t understand the tassel hanging down the sleeves. What the heck is that about? The dress is from Badgley Mishka Couture.

 Juan Soler

Juan Soler is so handsome in this black suit. I love that he chose to wear it without a tie; it gives him a young, cool look.

Worst Dressed on the Red Carpet

Carmen Villalobos

The cutout in the middle of Carmen Villalobos black gown was out of place and just plain awkward. The slit is way too high. If it was lower, she would have looked more graceful. Oh, and those shoes are hideous.

Maky Soler

Although her husband made the best dressed list, actress Maky Soler did not. The combination of what looks like sequins on top, and chiffon on the bottom doesn’t mix well. The hair is also too plain and boring for the award show. She should have let it down all the way. It seems as if she didn’t have a lot of time to get ready.

Laura Pausini

I adore her, but this dress isn’t doing anything for Laura Pausini. The thick straps on the shoulders along with the design in the front are all odd shapes.

Chino of Chino y Nacho

I usually like what he wears, but Chino’s outfit is way too busy. The blue flowers on the black jacket and shirt clash. And, he should’ve left the top button, unbuttoned. What do you think?

Julia Roberts’ Pink Jumpsuit at SAG Awards

21 01 2014

Pretty in Pink 

By Mercedes Sanchez

julia roberts pink jumpsuit at sag awardsBy now you guys know I love a chic jumpsuit!

So it’s no surprise that I absolutely loved Julia Roberts’ pink valentino jumpsuit at this year’s SAG Awards.

Her silver accessories with her soft curls gave her look a sultry, sexy touch.

I liked this look because it wasn’t over the top and uncomfortable, and her natural-looking makeup was perfect.

We got the 411 from makeup artist Genevieve Herr.


How to Get Julia Roberts’ Look: 

To complement Julia’s stunning pink Valentino jumpsuit, makeup artist Genevieve Herr gave Julia a soft smoky eye with a pale nude lip.

Herr defined Julia’s eyes with plum and violet shades and gave the cheeks a subtle glow. She used Lancôme Blush Subtil Palette in Rouge Allure.

For the lips, Herr used L’Absolu Nu Replenishing & Enhancing Lipstick in Beige Tulle.
