Shakira was honored this week as the 2011 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year.
The event, which took place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, featured a number of Latin musician and stars, but Shakira definitely stole the show.
The gorgeous beauty worked the red carpet in a blue silk chiffon Gabriela Cadena dress.
We’re loving the dress, the hair, the makeup — all of it!
As for the prestigious award from the Latin Recording Academy, Shakira is the youngest person at the age of 34 to receive one. Others include our favs like Gloria Estefan and Ricky Martin.

Gloria Estefan graces the cover of Venue magazine's November/December issue looking hot like fire in a printed bustier dress and windblown hair.
Lookin' good Gloria!
Eva Longoria worked the red carpet this past weekend at the ALMA Awards which she co-hosted along with funnyman George Lopez.
The Latinalicious hottie wore a strapless, Oscar de la Renta gown on the red carpet which helped accentuate her gorgeous curves.
Eva's dress featured a long train, which George so nicely helped arrange on the red carpet, and she even took time to post with one of the sponsors, the adorable Target pooch, Bullseye!
The 2011 Alma Awards took place in Santa Monica, California, and will air this Friday the 16th on NBC. It also included performances by Demi Lovato, Pitbull and the ever so fabulous, Gloria Estefan!
PS. How adorable does Bullseye look?!? Hopefully he wasn't on that stand for long though…. doesn't look comfy.

We love when celebs do good.
And Gloria Estefan is seeking your help for a good cause.
Her daughter Emily is part of her school’s Key Club and the organization is helping to collect prom dress for the underprivileged.
“I seldom like to ask for donations or things like that but since this is to help Emily's Key Club help others then I shall ask.
The Miami Country Day High School Key Club (Emily is the chairperson of the club project) is requesting prom dresses or dresses that could be worn at a high school prom to be donated so they can distribute them to high school girls in underprivileged schools that do not have the money to buy their own prom dresses. Proms are usually held for 11th and 12th graders so they must be between 15 and 19 year old girls of all different sizes.
If you have a dress you can donate, please send the dresses to Estefan Enterprises, Inc. 420 Jefferson Avenue, Miami Beach, Fla. 33139 and we will send it to the school.
Thank you so much!!”
Such a great idea!
