Eva Longoria, Sammy Sosa, Others Celebrate 'People En Espanol''s '50 Most Beautiful'

Many of 'Los 50 Mas Bello' in the Latin world gather to party for 13th annual issue.

Wednesday night People en Español celebrated its 13th annual "Los 50 Mas Bello" ("50 Most Beautiful") issue with a star-studded affair at the Edison Ballroom in New York. All the stars walking the gold carpet were dressed to impress and excited to be a part of a celebration that pays tribute to some of the most beautiful Latino celebrities in the world.

"Desperate Housewives" star [movieperson id="353787"]Eva Longoria-Parker[/movieperson], one of the Most Beautiful, was one of the first on the carpet, and she stopped to philosophize with MTV News. "Beauty comes from inside, and who I am inside is Mexican-American," she said. "So, for me, that's where beauty comes from."

Former Chicago Cub Sammy Sosa and his wife also came through to show support for the Latino community. When asked to give his definition of Latin beauty, he laughed and said, "My wife."

For many of those that made the list, one common theme seemed to emerge: When it comes to your looks, you have to thank your mom. Miss Universe 2008, Dayana Mendoza, was quick to pay her respects. "It's a big responsibility to be named as one of the most beautiful, but I still think that's my mom," she said.

CNN's Soledad O'Brien, Mexican telenovela star Maite Perroni and her Cuban co-star William Levy were among the other beautiful people in attendance. The event included a surprise performance by Cuban singer Cucu Diamantes.
