Best Dressed: 2008 Latin Billboard Awards

See the red carpet winners (and losers)!

1. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 09 Fanny Lu

Colombian songstress Fanny Lu, who took home one of the six awards for which she was nominated, takes her name a bit too literally in this marigold gown with a bustier shaped like an abanico.

 


2. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 01 Diana Reyes

In a sea of skintight dresses and faux-bronzed complexions, duranguense queen Diana Reyes shimmered in this blush-colored gown with a fresh burst of abstract poppies.

 


3. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 03 Daddy Yankee

Daddy Yankee’s suit was crisp as always, but his stiff haircut proved that there’s a very fine line between a fresh shape-up and Lego-head.


4. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 02 Kany Garcia

Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Kany Garcia pulls together the perfect outfit for her eclectic persona: a low-cut tiered dress with metallic pinstripes and deco-inspired hairpiece.


5. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 06 Kat DeLuna

Pop princess Kat DeLuna’s metallic grey minidress and peep-toes are hot, but what’s not so hot is her severe makeup and gloomy expression. Brighten up, Kat, you’re in Miami!

6. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 05 Aventura

Though not very coordinated, the Aventura boys look altogether nice in their mix-match suits. However, note to Romeo: it’s time to retire the heart sign, papi.

7. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 12 Belanova

Ok, we know Denise Guerrero and the boys of Belanova love the '80s, but we feel like we’ve seen them rock these same retro outfits at the last five award shows. It's time to switch it up guys...and dogs are not accessories!

8. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 07 Ivy Queen

Count on La Caballota to bring drama to the red carpet! Ivy Queen makes a statement in this cream-colored dress with ruffled halter neckline and a fresh new bob to match.

9. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 04 Black Guayaba

Scruffy boricua band Black Guayaba ended up losing the New Artist award to Kany Garcia, but at least they did it in their best hard-rocker formalwear.

10. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 08 Wisin Yandel

Before they picked up an award for Best Vocals, Duo or Collaboration for their jam “Pegao,” Wisin y Yandel won the Most Improved Red Carpet Performance prize for these complimentary suits and toned-down bling. Nice work, boys!

11. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 10 Yuridia

Woah, Yuridia! The Mexican pop star learned no lessons from Jennifer Hudson’s bolero fiasco at the Oscars, sporting a ruffled shrug over her white strapless gown that screams milkmaid.

12. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 11 Olga Tanon

Merengue diva Olga Tañon is perfectly classic in a beaded black sheath dress, patent leather slingbacks and gorgeous upswept ‘do. Best dressed of the night, hands down!

13. Best Dressed 2008 Latin Billboard 13 RBD

Ah, RBD—count on the members of this co-ed pop supergroup to never consult with each other before getting dressed for an awards show. From Dulce Maria’s peace sign to Poncho’s flip-flops, these outfits are all sorts of wrong.
