What do you like about being Latina?
What I mainly like most about being Latina is that little bit of flavor that we put to life and that we are strong and fighting women aside from the coquetry and sensuality that characterizes us.
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?
Not everything is a physical appearance, a pose or a look on Instagram, you can consider me a little crazy girl, hehehe super happy, optimistic, hardworking, a fighter who always puts a smile on to everything I do, even in bad times, I think it's always easier to smile.
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
Honestly I am very basic, black and white bottoms in my wardrobe are super important to me, but I think earth tones like nude that favors us Latinas a lot have to be in our closet yes or yes. As for clothes, mini skirts, jeans, elephant leg pants, crop tops, and flowing dresses are my favorite!
What trends are big in your city?
Right now I live in a city where trends are not the most important thing, but living 20 years in Madrid which is a city where fashion is the order of the day, you see the different leading trends walking through the streets. Right now I see a lot fashion through social networks. I like boho a lot which is what you can dress more of in the city that I live now.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
For favorite designers I do not have any exclusively because I like several, but anything from large European and Latin designer houses are a must have, although for many they may be less accessible and low cost fashion might be more viable. However I want to highlight a Colombian designer that I think is doing an excellent job. Her name is Johanna Ortiz and everything she does seems worthy of admiration. Although I should emphasize that I like to combine European style with Latin, I find it elegant and sexy at the same time.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
A fashion inspiration for me without a doubt is Olivia Palermo, I love her style, her elegance and simplicity, I think she has it all! She is always on top of the latest but in a very personal way that makes her impeccable and certainly very inspiring in terms of fashion. And if we talk about Latina women, I love Eva Méndez, she is sensual, elegant and beautiful and without a doubt a Latin goddess.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
I do not intend to give fashion lessons or how people should do things, but if I do something that I like, I have fun and I'm passionate about it just like fashion and if people are inspired and like it, it would be great and I would be satisfied! Although I won't deny that if I could live doing what I like, it would be great.
