We Ranked Our Favorite 17 Looks By Latina Queens From Best To Bestest

“Rupaul’s Drag Race” has established itself as one of the best and most empowering reality shows. Throughout its normal and special seasons, Latina queens have wowed us with their sense of fashion, their self-confidence and the way they wear their hearts on their sleeves. Their glitter-covered personas have captivated us and made us appreciate inner and outer beauty and the courage that it takes to be who you really are.

So, without further ado, here’s our Top 17 of the most mágico, cómico and musical outfits worn by Latino reinas throughout more than a decade of glam attacks.

17. Adore Delano and her Lady Marmalade throwback to the early 2000s

We could see her in the classic musical Moulin Rouge! being fab and dancing her heart out. Her pink wig was a total heart-stopper, with shades of Christina Aguilera. That black leather skirt caressing her hips is just the stuff that wet dreams are made of.

16. Cynthia Lee Fontaine as cowgirl rollerblade mamacita

Be bold, be brave, don’t second-guess mixing styles. If you wanna evoke Westerns and the disco years, why not wear a cute hat and a wig to make every queen jealous? She was giving us some 1970s roller disco Dallas realness.

15. Ginger Minj as an even weirder version of Sia

Back rolls be damned! She is fierce, she is fiery, she is weird and she knows it. She reminded us of Sia’s wonderful weirdness. A testament to self-expression.

14. Jessica Wild as a BDSM leather fetish princess

This outfit sure made more than one supermacho straight guy question his carnality. She was totally sexy in this tender dominatrix outfit that looked both womanly and dangerous.

13. Miss Bianca Del Rio as a gorgeous queen catrina

Body-Ody-Ody looking fine! Light and dark, night and day, cuteness and mystery. This outfit had it all and Bianca looked like a real Dolores Del Rio lookalike and showed that drag is art and art is drag.

12. Kandy Ho going all 1980s Cuban Miami, guapa

Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve & Talent to spare! Part Latino hot MILF, part throwback to the crazy Miami party scene of the 1980s. Jane Fonda would be proud and that necklace just hugged her neck like a lascivious reptile. Caliente!

11. Lyneisha Sparx giving us a vibe of “Memoir of a Geisha”

OK, she might be guilty of cultural appropriation, but this consummate sexy bomb looked like a good Bennetton ad with her Chinese fan, Japanese headdress, and delicious caramel complexion. Yummy.

10. Madame LaQueer with her emo cheerleader animal print extravaganza

She looked like every teenage girl in the 1990s: confused, fierce and listening to emo bands. We love the pompons on her shoulders and the super brave move to combine flower patterns and animal print. It is a jungle out there.

9. Monica Beverly Hillz as a high heels amazon goddess

Just look at her. She is a perfect testament to female perfection. That golden outfit is not discreet, that’s for sure, but it isn’t over the top either. Think Naomi Campbell, think Iman, think Grace Jones and all proud women of color before her. We just can’t get over those bold heels.

8. Naysha Lopez as a 1990s Nokia luxury mobile phone

Chicken Cutlets working their magic! She needs to be brave to wear this super revealing tight outfit that really looks like a vintage mobile phone. Can we dial your number, honey? Cuidado con las manos!

7. Beyonce? Oh, its Roxxxy Andrews!

That look makes us say: “That just flooded my basement!”. What a stare into infinity and beyond. What a way to trick the eye to what looks like skin but is really part of the outfit. Give us some Lemonade to quench our thirst for you, diosa color de cacao! She is an urban guerrera del Amazonas.

6. Valentina and those chic Carmen Miranda vibes

Honey Mahogany Dress galore! This outfit was elegant and cute at once, which is what femininity is all about. It is just the right dose of Latino with a Marilyn air to it as well. Totally Valentina, the ruler of all that is glamoroso. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

5. Violet Chakchi going full Dita Von Teese on us

Credit: Rupaul’s Runway. World of Wonder Productions.

What a gorgeous glamazon, chiquita hermosa. Burlesque vibes all around. Totally dominating the stage with those sexy leather accessories and that pin-up girl sassiness. The pale skin and dark hair make for a beautiful and dramatic contrast. Showtime! She would also be a fantastic Sally Bowles in a revival of Cabaret. Call the producers, pero a la de ya! 

4. Alexis Mateo and her cosplay manga anime locura

Credit: Rupaul’s Runway. World of Wonder Productions.

She made us think of all the sexy anime characters of years gone by, but with a fresh and slightly wild touch. That cleavage is deeper than anyone’s wildest desires and the net gloves give it a very early Madonna feel. Simple, yet nostalgic and amazing. We are sure she could release a very successful line for divas everywhere, East and West.

3. Nina Flowers and her Annie Lennox-David Bowie-Sci-fi supercrazy futuristic look… slay queen!

Credit: Rupaul’s Runway. World of Wonder Productions.

Talk about a powerful and imposing figure. Those futuristic spikes look menacing and remind us, at the same time, of ancient civilizations like Egypt and gorgeous women like Cleopatra and Nefertiti. Nina bridged past and present with style and boldness. All hail the almost-queen!

2. And the fav runner-up is… Bianca Del Rio channeling every single Disney villana

Credit: Rupaul’s Runway. World of Wonder Productions.

Not Today Satan, Not Today! Funny and iconic: that is how we can define this outfit worn by Bianca, one of our faves. She is bitchy and romantic, with a great sense of humor but zero patience for BS. She is Cruella De Ville and Ursula, but in a good way.

1. And the gorge winner is…. Adore Delano in bridal

Adore got into our hearts and minds wearing this bridal lacey outfit that let her be fabulous. That veil is like soft mist falling over a cosmopolitan city. The look says girl’s night out and humping honeymoon at the same time.  It was quite a symbolic decision as well, given the tribulations that LGBT communities around the world face when it comes to the right to just do whatever the hell they want. Good on you, girl, we adore Adore!

Salice Rose’s Ex Is On YouTube Right Now Attacking The Social Media Star Just Days After Announcing Her New Girlfriend

Salice Rose’s Ex Is On YouTube Right Now Attacking The Social Media Star Just Days After Announcing Her New Girlfriend

YouTuber Salice Rose has been notoriously private about her love life… up until last week when she introduced us all to her new bae. The Rose Family has erupted with joy for Salice in finding, if not love, then at least baeship with Brilynn. We’ve never seen another face that Salice has dated.

Then, one of Salice’s exes launched a YouTube channel of her own to explicitly talk about her relationship with Salice. In the video, Chas vents all her frustrations with the relationship and publicly airs out her side of the story. According to Chas, Salice was verbally and emotionally abusive, didn’t want her to have friends, and even donated her father’s ashes to Goodwill after one day’s notice to remove her stuff from Salice’s apartment.

Chas F’s channel already has 47k subscribers, and all her videos are about Salice Rose.

She created the channel about a week ago, just after Salice introduced her followers to her new girlfriend, Brilynn. According to Chas, it was hard to watch the video because just two weeks prior, they were “in each other’s phones” and talking about marriage, but Salice wanted to focus on her music.

Salice Rose has responded with a nearly hour and a half long retaliation video.

“A message to my ex: I hope lying on my name all over social media made you happy,” Salice tweeted. “I hope you got all the fame you wanted. Because of YOU I’m in waves of depression. You spoke, my turn.”

In the video, she goes point by point to respond to each of Chas’s allegations.

Salice actually made the point of writing down each point that Chas made and tells her fans that the video would be the first and the last time she talks about that relationship again. 

Chas’ story is that Salice didn’t let her have any other jobs because she didn’t want her to be too far from her. Salice’s side, corroborated by her friends commenting in the background, is that Chas quit all her jobs of her own volition. According to Salice, she would absolutely tell her to “come home,” but didn’t expect her to actually quit her jobs.

According to Chas, Salice had the idea to hire her and their relationship started to fall apart from there.

Chas shared that she had a feeling that taking the job would take away time from their relationship. They were spending all day together, and Salice takes her job very seriously. According to Chas, that made it difficult to spend time together without tension. Chas also said that she wasn’t getting paid enough to support anything other than her car bills. They started fighting, and Chas says that she didn’t have the opportunity to make any new friends.

The Rose Family is largely very sus of Chas’ accusations.

Chas said that she asked Salice to take on more responsibilities because she felt degraded by being paid to pick up dog poop. Salice had two dogs and Chas also had two dogs. According to Chas, the moment that she talked about getting other jobs, Salice started to treat her with disrespect and gaslit her.

Salice Rose opened her retaliation video by calling several Goodwills to ask if they accept human remains. They all said ‘no.’

Credit: @SaliceRose / Twitter

Chas says that Salice was going to mail her stuff out to Florida after they separated. Chas said she was calling and leaving voicemails to a mutual friend to arrange for Chas’s dad’s stuff to be mailed back to Florida. Through tears, Chas shares that two months after she moved out, she received an email with the subject line, “Notice of Right to Reclaim Abandoned Property” on June 7th.

One fan did some deep diving on Chas’ Instagram back to the day after that email, June 8th.

Credit: @nvmexme / Twitter

“I saw your ex’s vids and for a sec she made me think that you were the bad guy here,” tweeted @nvmexme. “But i mean everyone make mistakes yk? Anyways i kinda stalked her ig account and noticed that the same day say said that her things were going to be ‘donated’ Which was on june 8.”

Salice shared the email with her fans which clearly states that she gave Chas a month and a day from the receipt of the email to reclaim her property, which had already been in her apartment for two months.

There has been an outpour of support for Salice Rose after she responded to her ex-girlfriend’s video.

Credit: @salice_roseee / Twitter

Salice laid out her counterargument in an hour and twenty-minute video and went point by point off of Chas F’s video. She made a real point of taking on Chas F’s statement that Salice didn’t want her to have friends. As Salice lays out, she values friendships and argues that it is better for the relationship if both people have friends to hang out with outside of the relationship.

In other news, Salice’s debut R&B track became an overnight bop.

Salice has been teasing an entrance into a music career, and fans are shooketh that it’s actually here. Salice’s new bae, Brilynn commented, “Congratulations babe.”

Relationships are messy, but “Lullaby” is as smooth as can be.

Fans already can’t get enough of her new song.

Some are calling it the new summer bop. It does seem like fans have long been waiting for something like this from Salice Rose and they are letting everyone know that they need to check out this new song.

Watch Salice Rose’s response to her ex-girlfriend’s videos below!

Aristemo Will Soon Be Broadcast All Over The US Thanks To Univision Distributing This Gay Love Story

Aristemo Will Soon Be Broadcast All Over The US Thanks To Univision Distributing This Gay Love Story

univision / Instagram

Telenovelas have long been typecasting all the stereotypes we’ve grown up to believe to be true, and then to unlearn all over again. We’ve met the seductress duplicitous female villain, the overreactive, drama queen female ‘lover,’ and the steel-jawed masculine heart-breaker hero who finally finds his integrity and reunites with his inhumanly patient lover. Oh, and all the woman are highly sexualized and overall just the most feminine. Telenovelas have long codified the binary and the love stories of heteros. Not anymore.

Televisa’s El corazón nunca se equivoca (ECNSE) premiered in Mexico earlier this summer, and, now that Univision is picking up the novela, the U.S. is about to get its first-ever gay couple to star in a novela. 

El corazón nunca se equivoca (ECNSE) is the spin-off of novela Mi marido tiene familia that we’ve all been waiting for.

We got to meet stars Aristóteles “Aris” Córcega (Emilio Osorio) and Cuauhtémoc “Temo” López (Joaquín Bondoni) meet and fall in love in Mi marido tiene familia. That said, they met as teenagers while living under their parents’ ignorant roofs. Now we get to see them build their own lives. Together, the duo has been lovingly dubbed “Aristemo” or “Emiliaco,” depending who you ask.

In Mi marido tiene familia, we watched Aristemo endure a lot of homophobic hate.

Being gay in a homophobic society is incredibly isolating and dangerous. Suicide rates are nearly twice as high in the LGBTQ+ community than in the hetero community. That’s not because they’re gay. It’s because people are told that “God hates fags.” Fans have been rooting for Aristemo ever since they graced the television screen because they offer hope to all the gay niños out there watching.

ECNSE will follow Aristemo as they move from Oaxaca to Mexico City to follow their passions.

Of course, passion ensues. They escape Oaxaca’s brand of homophobia for Mexico City’s brand, but, as is the reality for our LGBTQ+ community, Aristemo finds and cultivates a safe space for them to love each other freely. Instead of sneaking around their parent’s houses, they hide away in their own shared apartment together, free at last.

Claro, leaving the crime scene of their families’ homophobia doesn’t heal those wounds as quickly as they hoped for.

You can expect to see a reasonable representation of life for LGBTQ+ youth in Mexico City. LGBT youth are far more likely to experience depression, suicidality and mental illness than hetero folks. Instead of the “happily ever after” ending we typically get from novelas, we get to see a more realistic next chapter in Aristemo’s lives together as they cope with their own depression, suicidal thoughts, and the emotional distress that homophobic political campaigns inflict. 

American fans are emocionada AF.

This fan took the time to screenshot grabs of an interview with Bondoni and Osorio, because the duo is just as cute off-screen as they are on-screen. “Ay pero bro, que bonito lo miras,” the fan captioned. “EMILIACO EN USA!”

We’re all learning lessons in love from Aristemo.

Credit: @SHIPPERARI / Twitter

Apparently, Aristemo not only goes on to create a safe space for themselves, but they also take in other LGBTQ+ youth. 😭We’ll meet their new friends, Diego (Nikolás Caballero) and Carlota Cervantes (Ale Müller), and watch how this little family learns to take care of each other and unlearn the drama that their families created for them.

The broader Aristemo family diaspora is currently weeping pride tears everywhere.

Credit: @pride_site / Twitter

“I’m so proud and also very excited 🙂 can’t wait for aristemo to make history in the us,” tweets one fan. “Creo que sin importar lo que pase, nos sentimos muy orgullosos,” tweets another. No novela drama we’re about to witness will change how proud we are to finally give this love story the spotlight. Why? Because the heart is never wrong [cries in gay].

America, you can watch El corazón nunca se equivoca on August 13, 2019 at 9p.m., only on Univision.

It’s prep time, mi gente. Gather your friends, your micheladas and a few Costco sized bags of Fritos, because the emotional eating is about to take over your life. Plus, know that you have 26 episodes to binge, which in novela world, is simply not enough. Still, we’ll take it. Mil gracias, Univision.
