If you were a fan of the “Lizzie McGuire” show, then you probably remember one of Lizzie’s bestest friends, Miranda. From her colorful hairstyles, to her funky humor and badass personality, here’s why Lalaine Vergara-Paras, aka “Miranda,” was so relatable to many Disney fans.

In every “Lizzie McGuire” episode, these three were alwayyyys together.

They were the original three best friends that anybody could have.

And amongst these three amigos, Miranda was often the goofball of the group.

Which is why the “Lizzie McGuire” show wouldn’t have been the same without her.

But she also knew how to keep it real.

She said things we wish we had the balls to say.

And being honest is what led to some of her most awe-inspiring moments throughout the “Lizzie McGuire” show.

This Disney star was dropping words of wisdom left and right, and she didn’t even know it.

And at times she proved she was just like us.

So. Did. We.

Miranda was the realest. She wasn’t afraid to tell it like it was, and that’s what everybody loved about her.

YASSS Miranda!! ??

Even though they had their ups and downs, Miranda always stood up for her bestie, Lizzie.?

They’ve been comadritas since the early 2000’s.

She was that badass best friend everyone wanted to have.?

Yup, definitely best friend goals. ??

But if there’s one thing you remember about Miranda, it’s that she matched her colorful personality to her hair.

Who didn’t try this style after watching her on “Lizzy McGuire”?

She debuted a new hair color with almost every episode.

A big fan of colors. #lizziemcguire #mirandasanchez #lalaine #lalainevergara #beautiful #art #disney #colors #haircolor #hairdye #90s

Which was sort of hard to keep up with.?

Her pigtails, buns and bangs were her all-time signature.


Along with those little stringy things.

She was definitely a fan of mixing colors and patterns.

Puro SWAG.

And there was no such a thing as “too many accessories” when it came to Miranda.??


From hair pins, to ribbons, earrings, and necklaces, Miranda rocked it ALL.

Altogether, from her obsession with boy bands…

Nostalgia ? @hilaryduff @thelalaine #LizzieMcGuire #Disney #Childhood #HilaryDuff #Lalaine

…to her love for food (especially sweets)…

Miranda Sanchez became one of our favorite Disney characters in the early 2000s.

More Latinos could be coming to TV, this time in the form of the show “Las Reinas,” a Miami-based cop drama featuring a Latina detective named Sonya De La Reina. ABC has ordered a pilot for the series, which centers on De La Reina, a police officer whose family just so happens to be one of the most notorious criminal organizations in Miami. The show has been in limbo for several years, as Deadline reported back in 2014. At that time, the main character’s name was Alex De La Reina, though the plot seems to have remained largely the same since the pilot was first reported.

“Las Reinas” is executive produced by Nicholas Pepper and Mark Gordon, who has also served as executive producer on “Quantico” and “Criminal Minds.” Rounding out the executive producers is Dean Georgaris, who also wrote the pilot episode of “Las Reinas,” which is currently listed as “in production” on IMDB.
