red green carpet at The Latin Grammy Awards is always a field covered with delicate flowers whose petals are touched with the finest crystals found in a Michael’s sale bin and they did not disappoint this year. Mostly that’s because d’Manti chose to rise out of the lotus flower she lives in and grace us with her presence. d’Manti’s website tells me that she’s a singer, dancer, actress and born entertainer, and her style tells me that she’s the kind of elegant lady who will only address you if you oh-so-gently kiss the top of her hand first.
The top of d’Manti says “third runner-up in Spearmint Rhino’s Dancing with the Strippers contest” and the bottom says “Gay Al Reynolds’ favorite ridin’ outfit.” The down south pearl necklace is the perfect touch. And d’Manti has so much glamour to give that she changed into a “Carrie does the Ice Capades” dress and walked the carpet again. I must bow.
And as much as it pains me in the soul to say this, I’m sure the sequins on Charo’s gown dimmed in honor of d’Manti when she sashayed by. The Queen of the NIGHT!
Those lucky enough to bask in d’Manti’s perfectly manicured beauty were: Jesus Albert Miranda Perez, Skeletor and JLo, CHARO!!!, Elvis Crespo, Hebe Carmargo, Jossie Cordoba, the Cuban Rainbow Brite known as Lucrecia and Paloma San Basiliio.
