Hot Salsa 

The Ultra Moda fashion show amps up the Latin energy.

Keep your earrings and bracelets at home — attitude is the accessory of choice at tonight's Ultra Modä: The Latino Fashion Show. The Club Modä event, part of Cleveland's Fashion Week festivities, features risqué apparel and plenty of other south-of-the-border delights. "It's what makes you smile," in the words of artistic director Joanna Glonek.

Among the highlights: colorful new designs worn by Latina models, zesty eats, and nonstop salsa and merengue music. (Dirty dancing is optional, says Glonek: "We had this couple last year who danced so well, I couldn't stop staring.") There will also be contests to determine the best-dressed man, woman, and couple in attendance. Not sure what to wear? Take a cue from the runway models, says talent director Skylar Starks: "Think sexy and a lot of energy."
