The post is made up of various photos, opening with one where Hayek and Alba are seen front and center. Hayek wore a light blue suit while Alba wore a black one with white details on it. The two were accompanied by various actors, including Jay Hernandez, Edward Olmos, Clifton Collins Jr., and more.

Alba posted about the event on her own social media, sharing her excitement for hosting an evening that celebrated hispanic and Latin culture. “A night out of my wildest dreams,” she wrote. “My younger self could’ve never even dreamt up such a beautiful time. Thank you to my co-host Tracy Brennan and everyone that came through/ Our intention was to foster culture, community and connection in a positive way to bring our incredible Latine + Hispanic familia together.”

Alba continued: “I was beyond honored to share a space with so many legendary humans - the Culture Makers of today and tomorrow. Here’s to keeping the energy alive and recreating last night again and again and again. I can’t wait for the magic to continue… Mucho amor.”
In the clip, she’s seen discussing the importance of Latin families and how every person in the room was likely the first person to become an actor and pursue their dreams thanks to the sacrifices that were made by their parents. The post also showed Alba getting ready for her event and spending some time with Hayek, with the two hugging in excitement. “What a great idea to do this night!” Hayek says to the camera.
