A beach bash includes lots of water, right? There sure was plenty of water Thursday evening during Premios Juventud (Youth Awards) 10 year celebration in Miami. It was a stormy occasion indeed – rain, thunder and lightening – but all present were protected under the temporary white long tarp building built beside the BankUnited Center venue for the Noche de Estrellas carpet event.
Premios Juventud carried out this year’s theme exactly as planned with a beach boardwalk including food and game stands for the carpet presentation of celebrities – handful of Univision show hosts, actors, actresses and a few artists. The carpet was not red, blue or green this year, it was of course a sandy color – tan – with three stripe colored mats as markers for celebrities to pose for the photographers. The Premios Juventud carpet pre-show opening act was Angel & Khris who were accompanied by a dozen or so dancers as they sang their hit song “Mi Corazón”.
As in any carpet presentation, there are the appropriately and inappropriately dressed. The evening gowns were not a fashion statement this year. They definitely clashed with the beach theme setting. White was the prime color among the famous from Puerto Rican Ricky Martin’s all white chef like outfit to Mexican singer and actress beauty Lucero with her off-white lace dress. Lace, prints and bold colors fit in perfectly with this summer’s fashion color trend.
