The cast of Roma dressed to the nines and chose extremely flattering dresses that were a real hit on and off the carpet. Yalitza Aparicio, who was nominated in the Actress in a Leading Role category for the Alfonso Cuarón film, chose designer Rodarte to style her for her big night, and she looked like a true fairy-tale princess.

Mendel that was an absolute dream.
