15 Times Reggaeton Artists Served The Most Iconic Fashion Moments

Reggaeton has grown 1000% from 2009 to 2019. With the genre making waves all over the world, it is little wonder that high end brands such as Chanel, Balenciaga and more, are turning to Reggaetoneros to promote their clothes to a “new” market; Latinos. As the genre has started to grow and ripen, so too has the genre’s biggest exponents’ style. From Medellin to Paris, and Puerto Rico to New York Fashion Week, our fave urbano singers have served some iconic lewks, and we rounded up our favorites for you to gawk at.

1. Bad Bunny’s Latin Grammys 2019 Outfit

Wearing a diamond face mask, red glasses, and long red coat with silver butterfly accents, Bad Bunny put everyone on their feet with this never-before-heard version of “Callaita” at the 2019 Grammy Awards #iconique

2. J Balvin in Off-White for Blanco

Just this week, the Colombian powerhouse dropped his brand new track ‘Blanco’, and hinted at a new solo album after the success of ‘Oasis’, his collab with Bad Bunny. The video served all white looks in a minimalistic vibe, during the video he wore a luxe, minimal Off-White boiler suit and we can only wish we could afford it. Maybe a Home Depot version will do for us.

3. Ozuna in Fendi at the 2019 Billboard awards

He already made it clear in the song ‘Solita’, “Conmigo todo Gucci, todo Fendi,” unsurprisingly, he lives by his own words. The Puerto Rican wore a comfy Fendi fit to perform at this year’s Billboard Awards where he won 11 prizes and was nominated for 25 categories.

4. Karol G in Tusa —basically every look

The queen of reggaeton served candy floss-colored LOOKS in her video ‘Tusa’ and slayed with Nicky Minaj. Is there anything more iconic? #Diosa

5. Becky G for Paper Magazine

The Inglewood native is a true style icon. In this cover story for the legendary fashion, popular culture, nightlife, music, art and film magazine, PAPER, she wore a muted monochromatic look and we STAN.

6. Maluma at the 2019 MET Gala.

This year Maluma made history after becoming the first Colombiano to set foot on the MET Gala’s pink carpet. And the stylish reggaetonero was obviously not about to disappoint his loyal subjects with a bland outfit. He wore a beaded pink and silver suit designed by Moschino.

7. Basically every look from Maluma’s F.A.M.E tour.

The pretty boy from Medellin can wear everything from skinny-jeans-and-boots-Jagger to aggro neon post-streetwear and look flawless—but we’ve got to say it, the dapper, suited up look he sported for his F.A.M.E. tour, really suits him.

8. Natti Natasha ‘Queening’ in her collab with Forever 21.

Nothing like a powerful woman who knows her worth and owns it. Earlier this year, Natti teamed up with Forever 21 to work on a collection focused on female empowerment, the size inclusive capsule collection included slogan tees, hoodies, biker shorts, accessories, and more. The queen in a ‘queendom’ top is a next level slay.

9. Bad Bunny’s all white look

This look stirred the internet into a frenzy, fans wondered whether his coat was real fur or synthetic -and two years later, I guess we’ll never find out. What’s true is that the white-out look is going down in history as one of the reggaetonero’s most iconic choice of clothes.

10. That time J Balvin made Chanel, street cool.

There was a time when J Balvin was Chanel’s favorite bad boy. Before the passing of Chanel’s designer and creative director Karl Lagerfeld earlier this year, J Balvin was seen hanging out and attending shows with the fashion titan. This era was a much chicer and simple time for Balvin’s style and we can’t say we don’t miss it.

11.  Becky G ‘Lady in The White Dress’

I mean, the beat, the hair, the dress, the GLAM! This was a total slay, no more words needed.

12. J Balvin at The Louis Vuitton show in Paris.

J Balvin back at it with the Paris Fashion Week outfits. The urbano singer was invited to attend the famous streetwear designer, Virgil Abloh’s very first show as Louis Vuitton’s creative director and his look was a utilitarian-chic dream. Definitely one for the books.

13. Bad Bunny’s ‘Si estuviesemos juntos’ video look

As much as Bad Bunny loves an acid tie-dye, or a neon-hued streetwear look, it seems like he also has some love for the classic, dapper look. The look is classic, yet timely when worn by the chart-topping Conejo Malo.

14. Daddy Yankee in Dior for ‘Con Calma’ Remix

There’s nothing more luxurious than a custom Christian Dior silk shirt. The ‘Gasolina’ singer usually errs in favor of caution when he chooses his clothes (not so much when it comes to jewelry), but on this occasion he went all out with a pastel-hued,floral print shirt and it quite suits him.

15. Ozuna, Anuel, Daddy Yankee and Karol G in matching outfits at the Billboards.

The all star team dressed up in matching neon-green outfits to perform their track “China” at this year’s Billboard awards and they look like a fashionable Latino Power Ranger squad —a show we’d definitely watch.

16. All of Becky Gs MTV EMA looks

Becky shed her ‘good girl’ look in favor of showing off the chic woman she’s turned into. At this year’s MTV EMAs she wore an elegant suit complete with a pussy bow shirt, skin baring bodysuits and a couple of uber chic mini dresses. We’re loving this renewed fierceness.

17. Maluma’s ‘Courtside Formal’.

The Colombian singer took in a Knicks game from court-side seats dripping in 1977’s finest finery, all designed by Gucci’s Alessandro Michele. And he looked fabulous if I do say so myself.

The Long Awaited Trailer To JLo And Maluma’s ‘Marry Me’ Is Finally Here

The Long Awaited Trailer To JLo And Maluma’s ‘Marry Me’ Is Finally Here

One of the year’s biggest collaborations is starting to make more progress after being largely shut down thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic. Of course, we’re talking about the upcoming highly-anticipated Jennifer Lopez film, Marry Me, which also stars Maluma in his acting debut.

Although we still have a while to wait before the movie makes its big screen debut (not until 2021), we’re finally getting our first look at what the duo will look like on screen along with other exciting details about the project.

Marry Me finally has an official trailer and JLo and Maluma fans couldn’t be more excited.

It seems like we’ve been hyped up for this film forever – and thanks to Coronavirus, we kinda have. But finally, Universal has released the teaser for Marry Me, and it reveals a few new details about the film and its cast. Along with J.Lo, the film stars Owen Wilson, Sarah Silverman, and Colombian singer Maluma in his major feature debut.

The film was originally announced last summer and production began in October 2019 but much of it was shut down once the Coronavirus struck. The film is directed by Kat Coiro (It’s Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaDead to Me) and features original music by Lopez and Maluma, which sounds too perfect to be legal, sorry.

To celebrate the cinematic milestone, López and Maluma have reported that they are recording a full-length soundtrack of original songs. Maluma Baby is hyped from the time he’s spent in the studio with J.Lo (who wouldn’t be?), telling a reporter last year, “It’s been such an amazing experience also working, doing music. I mean we never stop.”

So here’s everything we know about the film so far.

Based on the graphic novel by Bobby Crosby, the film is described as a “modern love story about celebrity, marriage and social media.” López plays musical sensation Kat Valdez, who agrees to live-stream her marriage with her fellow superstar Bastian (Maluma — fictional or not, this is officially the hottest couple on Planet Earth and we can’t unsee it) in order to boost the sales of their new single and duet, “Marry Me.”

When she finds out that Bastian has been cheating on her, however, she freaks out and decides to marry a stranger in the audience watching: divorced high-school math teacher Charlie Gilbert (Owen Wilson), who was dragged to the event by his daughter. The unexpected sequence of events leads the two down a path toward unexpected true love.

Even with a new movie coming out, both JLo and Maluma have been hard at work in the studio.

Just last month, Maluma surprise released his latest album – PAPI JUANCHO. It’s Maluma’s fifth studio album and was produced alongside longtime collaborators Rude Boyz. Although the album features Maluma’s alter ego as the main star, it also includes several guest appearances from a number of reggaetón royals, including Justin Quiles, Lenny Tavarez, Myke Towers, and Jory Boy. PAPI JUANCHO was made during quarantine between the singer’s hometown of Medellín and Miami, his U.S. base.

Meanwhile, JLo has teased new music in recent weeks. Jennifer Lopez posted a picture with producer Ryan Tedder over the weekend in which she promised that new music is “just around the corner.”

The snap, in which Lopez is sporting dark red lips and a messy up hairdo alongside the OneRepublic leader and veteran songwriter/producer — rocking a black Mad Tasty hat — doesn’t offer much more detail about what the duo are cooking up, but Lopez seems pretty psyched.

“Can u feeeeeel it… new music just around the corner!!” Lopez wrote.

It would be a welcome return for Lopez, who has only released a remix of “If You Had My Love” so far this year, as fans wait for her to announce a release date for her as-yet-untitled ninth studio album. Lopez’s last full-length was 2014’s A.K.A., which featured the singles “I Luh Ya Papi,” “First Love” and “Booty.”

Vanessa Romo Marks The Cover Of Vogue México In A History-Making Feature

Vogue México knows a good trend when it comes to the fashion world. Their recent decision to feature model Vanessa Romo on the cover of their September issue proves that they also know a classic too. Speaking with Vogue México the model opened up about her career, challenges, and experiences that have allowed her to position herself as one of the modeling world’s most prominent figures.

The model with Mexican roots started out her career by modeling on small projects then moved up to uploading images to Instagram and eventually became discovered by Forever 21. Soon after, the North American fast-fashion brand offered Romo a collaboration and she was ultimately signed to an agent.

Now she’s Vogue México’s September model.

In her interview with Vogue, Romo says that the first time she saw plus-size models on a runway, her view of the fashion industry completely shifted.

Seeing women with bodies just like hers, made Romo feel represented in a way that was beautiful and confident. Speaking to Vogue México, Romo explains that she struggled her first two years as a model because she was still in college at University of California, Santa Bárbara. Because of her Latin roots, Romo studied Chicano Studies and Spanish. Her interest led her to continue to explore her identity and Romo decided to audition for Nuestra Belleza Latina on Univision in 2018.

Romo told Vogue that she decided to take part in the competition because she knew there was a need for this representation in the Latino community. When she finished the contest, she realized that she needed to continue breaking expectations for models.

“With this new inspiration, she decided to learn to love her body. Modeling and fashion were for her a way of exploring her own confidence and growing her,” Vogue México revealed. “The power of modeling captivated her so much that it was then that she realized that she herself wanted to be part of the change. Just as she needed empowerment, she knew that there were so many girls and women who needed it equally.”
