On Wednesday Feb. 26, Proctor & Gamble launched the Orgullosa program's latest campaign: the Nueva Latina with the Nueva Latina Monologues - an original production the personifies life as a bicultural and modern Latina.

The launch was celebrated with a "Chicas Night Out" experience in which VIP guests were given access to a beauty bar for hair touch ups, cocktails, and a sampling of products such as Olay body wash and Pantene haircare. Later in the evening, guests were ushered to the screening room of the Helen Mills event space for the live production of the Nueva Latina Monologues.

Celebrity guests included La La Anthony, Roselyn Sanchez, Dascha Polanco, Angie Martinez, Alexia Echevarria, Adrienne Bailon, and more, who showed their support of the Nueva Latina Monologues.

We talked to a few of these lovely ladies on being a Nueva Latina on the red carpet. Here is what they had say:

What brought you to this event?

Roselyn Sanchez: Proctor and Gamble has this new campaign called Nueva Latina and it's about empowering the bicultural Latina that lives in the United States - as you know we're a majority - and everything that involves confidence and giving power to the female Latina I'm all about it. I left Puerto Rico without knowing barely any English, I came to New York to study because my dream was to be an entertainer and it was culture shock it was dealing with starting from 0 even though I was known in my country at the time, learning a new language, and trying to prove to America that I'm here for a purpose and that I have talent.

What do you think defines a strong Latina woman?

Roselyn Sanchez: I think culturally we're strong by nature. I don't exactly know why. When people think of a Latina woman they think of power, flavor, confidence.

How did you get involved with Orgullosa?

Dascha Polanco: I was invited by being part of the campaign for Orgullosa Latina and its amazing they have me as a gust. I'm grateful and honored.

What do you think defines a strong Latina woman?

Dascha Polanco: I keep on saying the same thing. A risk taker, fearless, doing what they want to do, not being part of the stereotype, being able to multi task, and not allowing obstacles to be in their way.

And "Orange Is The New Black" - it's everybody's favorite show. What was it like coming out of such a successful season 1 and going into season 2?

Dascha Polanco: There's more pressure. You want to improve your craft and not let your fans down. Not let yourself down - you push yourself more. It's like yeah we've been there, but let's not become a plateau.

What's it like to play your character on the show - an inmate?

Dascha Polanco: It's hard because I'm so far opposite from her you know? We have the essence of each other in a sense, but at the same time choices that she makes would not be the choices that I would make

And any insight into Season 2?

Dascha Polanco: New developing stories. A lot more background of characters in the prison - I think that's what keeps this show so unique - the backstories and developing each individual.
