Latinos and fashion go together like mojitos and the beach! J. Lo and Marc Anthony! Er...cholos and lowriders! You get the idea. Our contribution to the field goes way beyond zoot suits and moños (and the aforementioned cliches), and MTV Tr3s is about to show everyone exactly how we do.
The network's special, Fashionista, premieres on Aug. 16 and will use music stars, stylish celebs and the best new Latin designers to discuss the state of bicultural fashion today. That includes everything from Perez Hilton giving his best-dressed favorites and Jaslene Gonzalez modeling Latino-designed clothes, to performances by Kinky and Nina Sky and a look back at some of our most influential style icons (Celia Cruz, Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Lopez and Frida Kahlo, to name a few). If you miss it at 2:00PM EST, you can catch it again at 9:00PM EST and then check fashionista.mtvtr3s.com for post-show coverage and photo flipbooks of what went on behind the scenes.
We've already been gushing over the fashion savvy of Penelope, Frida and Jennifer in recent days, so you know we'll be tuning in to MTV Tr3s for their take! Check it out too, and let us know what you think...
