mtvtr3s.com) brings together the perfect mix of
high fashion and hot music on “MTV Tr3s Fashionista,” which premieres
on August 16th at 2 PM.  Taped in front
of a live studio audience, “MTV Tr3s Fashionista” is hosted by former
model and actress Natalie Martinez and MTV Tr3s VJ L.Boogs with Karli Henriquez
as backstage correspondent.  The program
features celebrity models like America’s Next Top Model winner Jaslene Gonzalez
and Danity Kane’s Aubrey O’Day walking the runway and showcasing Fall 2008
looks from a mix of Latino and Anglo designers. 


    “MTV Tr3s
Fashionista” also takes a look at Latino fashion icons such as
Frida Kahlo, Celia Cruz, Eva Longoria, Christina Aguilera, Penelope Cruz, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Daddy Yankee, Enrique Iglesias, Alejandro Sanz, Wisin Y Yandel, and Juanes, and
profiles up and coming Latin designers and fashion insiders.  Plus, Perez Hilton picks his top five
fashion favorites!


    Online, fashionista.mtvtr3s.com is the place
users can browse through fashion flashback photo galleries featuring “now
and then” looks worn by popular Latin and urban artists.  Ancillary “MTV Tr3s Fashionista”
programming will be available for streaming, as well as fashion forward music
videos. Post-show, users can recap each look they saw on air with four
“Trends” lookbooks recapping the models, fashions and makeup
showcased in show.  The full “MTV
Tr3s Fashionista” special will also be available online following the
on-air premiere, and users can learn more about the designers behind the
clothes via biographies and product information.


    Musical performance by Kinky,
Lloyd featuring Pitbull, RKM y Ken Y, and Nina Sky round out the one-hour
special style addicts won’t want to miss.


    Kinky, hailing from Monterrey, Mexico, blends
Latin rhythm, rock, electronica and hip-hop to create their own unique spicy
flavor. Their 2006 release Reina (Nettwerk/Kin-Kon), which Rolling Stone called
“dance-till-you-drop mayhem,” earned the band two Latin Grammy
nominations. The quintet has just put the final touches on their upcoming
album, which is set for release later this year.


    R&B hitmaker Lloyd performs his new
single “Girls Around the World” on “MTV Tr3s Fashionista”
in an exclusive version featuring Mr. 305 himself, Pitbull. This never before
seen performance is a result of their longstanding relationship dating back to
their collaboration on Pitbull’s chart-topper “Secret Admirer”.   Lloyd closes the show with “Get It
Shawty” while getting down with the sexy “MTV Tr3s Fashionista”
models. Lloyd’s upcoming album, “Lessons In Love,” drops on August
5th on The Inc.


    With more than
600,000 albums sold worldwide, reggaeton sensations RKM y Ken Y take over
“MTV Tr3s Fashionista” and perform their new single “Te Regalo
Amores” from the highly anticipated album “The Royalty” due out
September 9th on Machete Records for the first time.


    Nina Sky, the
New York Puerto Rican sisters preview an exclusive track, “Clothes
Off,” surrounded by a troupe of sexy shirtless “MTV Tr3s
Fashionista” Latino models.  The
girls wrote and co-executive produced their forthcoming, sophomore studio album
titled “The Musical”,
due out in September of ’08 on Polo Ground/J Records.
