Karol G Stuns in a White Plunging Corset Dress at the BLMAs
While Fashion Month may be over, bringing your sartorial A-game is always in order, especially at the 2023 Billboard Latin Music Awards. On Oct. 5, the Latine community’s most talented singers and rappers gathered at the Watsco Center in Coral Gables, FL, to celebrate music and culture, and fashion was not forsaken. This year’s event marked 30 years since its inception. It’s birthed some bold style moments through the years, from Shakira‘s medieval corset-and-skirt combo in 1999 to Becky G’s green Dundas cutout gown held together by metal rings in 2022.
Among this year’s recognized attendees were Bad Bunny, who won artist of the year; Peso Pluma, recognized for hot Latin song; and ” target=”_blank” class=”ga-track” data-ga-category=”internal click” data-ga-label=”http://www.billboard.com/music/latin/karol-g-received-the-spirit-of-hope-award-billboard-2023-1235435340>” data-ga-action=”body text link”>Karol G, who took home five awards, including top Latin album for “Mañana Será Bonito.” Styled by Zerina Akers, the Colombian singer celebrated her wins in a custom white satin corset and floor-length skirt, adorned with crystal fringe tassels, that showed off her collection of more than 20 tattoos. She accessorized with Sophia Webster platforms and wore her pink and blond hair in a messy bun with rosy makeup.
Meanwhile, Bad Bunny took an edgier approach in a white tee, Gucci pants, navy blue loafers, and accessories, including his signature backward cap and a scarf tied around his neck layered over diamond necklaces. Paris Hilton graced the award show stage in a mint green Area gown that featured a halter-style neckline, rectangular cutouts that bared her chest and sides, and rhinestone detailing. She teamed the sparkly number with metallic pumps, a coordinating Jimmy Choo clutch, and chunky crystal cuffs. Sofía Reyes also got the cutout memo, as she posed in a black and gold sparkly dress from Rahul Mishra and alluring Fabergé jewelry.
