Gina Rodriguez Rocked Golden Globes' Red Carpet in Badgley Mischka & Wears Dresses by Guatemalan Designer GUiSHEM (EXCLUSIVE)
Golden Globe-winning, "Jane The Virgin" star Gina Rodriguez is upping the ante not only on the acting front, but in the designer duds department -- and it's sure to get better from here with all eyes now on the loveable Latina.
On Sunday, the talented actress rocked the red carpet at the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California with class and sophistication. Rodriguez donned a fitted, black strapless dress with an embellished, semi-sheer skirt by Badgley Mischka, dangling earrings, and Jimmy Choo heels, according to US Magazine.
While some critics have said the actress played it safe, (it was after all her first-ever Golden Globe Awards, so can you blame her for keeping it simple yet stylish?) Rodriguez still looked stunning and lit up the room with her gratitude and touching acceptance speech. Other fashionistas and critics loved her dress choice, especially the embroidered bottom and its flattering mermaid shape.

So for the ordinary yet stylish fashionistas, you can dress like Rodriguez with the help of Guatemalan runway couture designer Guillermo Jop, who is also head designer for the GUiSHEM brand, who spoke with Latin Post in an exclusive interview prior to the first-ever Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Guatemala in November 2014.
On Jan. 10, Rodriguez was spotted in Beverly Hills, California wearing the asymmetrical cut out dress and matching multi colored tweed coat by GUiSHEM to day 1 of HBO's Luxury Lounge Featuring Pandora Jewelry.
Jop, head designer for the GUiSHEM brand, has created innovative and edgy designs for top celebrities, such as Kristen Stewart, Kelly Osbourne, Julianne Hough, Connie Britton, as well as Latina celebrities Christina Milian and Bella Thorne, among many others.
"We always get inspired by architecture. We always take elements of architecture like the shapes, the structure, the geometric shapes and cuts," Jop told Latin Post in an earlier interview. "Also, the main inspiration is futuristic retro, so we try to emote this feeling...a nostalgic feeling but in a modern look -- from the 40s, 50s and 60s."
In November 2014, Guatemala made fashion history with the launch of its first-ever Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Guatemala City.
Circling back to the Globes, what did Rodriguez do to prep for the fashion side of the Golden Globes?
"I wake up and I'll probably go boxing with my dad," she said at BAFTA-LA's Tea Party with Mulberry, Jaguar and American Airlines at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills, E! Online added.
Then she said she would make her way to breakfast made by her mom, but that it would be a little different this time around.
"She held back the bread because knows how tight my dress is tomorrow," Rodriguez said prior to the Golden Globes. "I was like, how are you going to even tease me, mom, with all that delicious butter? But I will be having that the second I get out of the dress."
Rodriguez reportedly "cracked that she tried on '7,000' dresses before making her final decision."
"But you know what's crazy?" Rodriguez added. "I liked the second dress and it's the one we went with. After trying on all these dresses, I kept going back to this dress."
