Some of the most beautiful Latin artists came together last night as People en Espanol hosted their annual Los 50 Mas Bellos event in New York City’s IAC Building.Â The 2015 Toyota Camry joined the action at the star-studded event in a very unique way.Â Â While guests enjoyed an art installation highlighting the Camry, one of the evening’s special guests and 50 Most Beautiful stars, Cuban actor, William Levy, donned a specially designed leather jacket featuring the same leather material and bold red stitching that can be found in the 2015 Toyota Camry.
The jacket was designed and styled by Kathy Kopp, Miami based Colombian designer and stylist to many recognized stars including Shakira, and made with the leather used in the vehicle’s seats and accentuated with red stitching.Â The designer was inspired by the bold and distinctive design of the Camry that lead to the idea of a uniquely crafted jacket.Â In partnership with Toyota, William Levy wore the jacket to make an exclusively bold and distinctive fashion statement that evening. Â Â
“This event is one of our long-standing sponsorships that allows us to connect to many of today’s Latino artists and stars in the community.Â This year, we wanted to shine the spotlight on the 2015 Camry by highlighting the versatility and luxury of the material you can find in this latest model,” said Jack Hollis, group vice president of marketing at Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.
Another one of the 50 Most Beautiful stars, singer Becky G., joined Toyota to give followers an inside look at the red carpet action that evening.Â She shared messages and video on @ToyotaLatino and Facebook channels.
