Christina Aguilera was walking the red carpet at the 2012 NCLR ALMA Awards on Sunday night wearing a sleek black dress with a thigh-high split.
Our reaction when we see Xtina's name on any red carpet list is to tense, take a moment to steel ourselves and then to look at the pictures. After all, you never know when surprise leather chaps or a fake tan catastrophe are going make an appearance.
Turns out we needn't have worried - the awards ceremony, held by Latino civil rights and advocacy group NCLR to celebrate positive portrayals of Latinos, seemed to bring out the best in the singer (or her stylist).
A Michael Kors dress with floral embellished sheer panels, Christian Louboutin shoes, and a hefty dose of Neil Lane jewellery ensured our eyes were on Xtina for all the right reasons.
Well, almost all. We're still not signing off on that My Little Pony dip dye.
