Carmen’s Quinceañera Segments on NBC and Telemundo
By Carmen Ordonez
Yesterday I was invited on NBC’s Live Miami and Telemundo’s Acceso Total to talk about the latest Quinceañera trends and fashions from David’s Bridal. The segments were live and back-to-back, but luckily NBC and Telemundo are both in the same location, so it was a matter of hopping from one studio to the next.
I had so much fun doing the segments, plus I got to talk about something I love so much…fashion on a budget! The dresses were absolutely stunning. This season we’re seeing tons of bold pops of color for Quinceañera dresses, so I brought in a gorgeous strapless tulle gown in Apple Red and a sweetheart asymmetrical dress in Regency Purple. I also brought in a white gown from the Oleg Cassini Collection, exclusively available at David’s Bridal. The host, Roxy Vargas, and I both wore white to our own Quinceañeras. I loved the dress, even though it was white, as it was a very traditional color for Quinceañeras and the cut of the dress was very contemporary…so it was the perfect mix between traditional and modern.
My favorite part of the NBC Live Miami segment was a surprise Quinceañera party the producers put together for one of the co-hosts, Sheree. She never got to celebrate her Quince or Sweet 16, so we dressed her up in this gorgeous two-toned orange and fuchsia dress from David’s Bridal. She even had a cake and all! It was adorable.
For my segment on Telemundo’s Acceso Total I also got to share tips on how to find the perfect dress for your Quince and what styles look great on any body type.
Overall the segments were a blast and I can’t wait to do some more. Here are some pictures from the shoot. Which is your favorite dress?
