Selena Gomez Was Featured In This Month’s Vogue Cover, But Here Are Latinas Who Were On The Cover Before Her

From models to actors to singers, Vogue Magazine has been showcasing Latinas from several different national backgrounds on its cover since the 1970s. Selena Gomez might be the most recent, but here are some of the women that helped pave that road.

1. Raquel Welch

Vogue Magazine

Welch is most famously known for her role on “One Million Years B.C.” which made her the it-girl during the 1960s. Six years after the release of “One Million Years B.C.” the Bolivian actor, singer and model was on the cover of Vogue for the Nov. 15, 1972 edition and she rocked it.

2. Talisa Soto

Vogue Magazine

Soto started her acting career in 1988 thanks to her breakout role in “Spike of Bensonhurst.” The following year, the Puerto Rican model and actor caught everyone’s attention as Bond Girl Lupe Lamora in “License To Kill.” It was in the same year as her Bond role that Soto landed on the April edition of Vogue Magazine.

3. Christy Turlington

Vogue Magazine

There’s no doubt that Turlington enjoyed much success as a model. The model who is Salvadoran (on her mom’s side) was first on a Vogue cover alone in 1990 and then again in 1992 with fellow model Naomi Campbell.

4. Cameron Diaz

Vogue Magazine

You might remember Diaz, a former fashion model, from her role as Tina Carlyle on “The Mask” with Jim Carey. Or maybe you remember the Cuban actor more from “My Best Friend’s Wedding” which was released in 1997, the same year as her first Vogue cover.

5. Gisele Bündchen

Vogue Magazine

Bündchen seems to be the model for a Vogue cover. The Brazilian supermodel has made it on 11 U.S. Vogue covers alone. Not to mention all of her Vogue Brazil covers over the years.

6. Isabeli Fontana

Vogue Magazine

Speaking of Brazilian supermodels, Fontana is one of several Brazilian supermodels that has been featured on Vogue covers worldwide.

7. Caroline Trentini

Vogue Magazine

Trentini started her modeling career when she was just 15 years old. The Brazilian supermodel has been on two U.S. Vogue covers along side the other Brazilian supermodels (Raquel Zimmermann and Isabeli Fontana) who have taken the fashion world by storm.

8. Raquel Zimmermann

Vogue Magazine

Both Zimmermann and Trentini are part of the group of Brazilian supermodels that include Bündchen and Fontana. There’s no arguing that these women are flaw-less.

9. Jennifer Lopez

Vogue Magazine

Lopez had a big year in 2005. Not only was she in two movies (“Monster In Law” and “An Unfinished Life”), Lopez landed her first Vogue cover that same year all while planning her wedding to Ben Affleck. If only the Puerto Rican actor could have avoided that whole “Gigli” moment.

10. Salma Hayek

Vogue Magazine

Lopez wasn’t the only Latina to snag a Vogue cover in 2005. Hayek, who didn’t have a movie released that year but did present at the Oscars, used her time off to give the magazine a stunning cover.

11. Selena Gomez

Vogue Magazine

The young singer and actor is the latest Vogue cover model and she totally nailed it. The Mexican-American former Disney star has had a very busy few month with her world tour and producing content for streaming powerhouse Netflix.

Selena Gomez Reveals ‘Revelación’ Tracklist, Drops “Selfish Love” with DJ Snake

Selena Gomez Reveals ‘Revelación’ Tracklist, Drops “Selfish Love” with DJ Snake

The tracklist for Selena Gomez’s Revelación EP is here! The Mexican-American pop star also premiered her new single “Selfish Love” with French producer DJ Snake.

We’re excited about the Myke Towers collaboration.

Gomez previously previewed her Revelación EP with the singles “De Una Vez” and “Baila Conmigo” featuring Puerto Rican singer Rauw Alejandro. There’s another Boricua superstar lined-up for her upcoming release. With the tracklist unveiling, Myke Towers was revealed to be on the song “Dámelo To’.” That one sounds like it’s going to be hot. The EP will be seven songs in total with hit-maker Tainy at the helm.

“Selfish Love” with DJ Snake is a bilingual bop.

For her latest single, Gomez teamed up again with DJ Snake for “Selfish Love.” In 2018, she first worked with him on the global smash “Taki Taki” featuring Ozuna and Cardi B. Gomez was the fiesta and she was ready to party. The song was later included on DJ Snake’s Carte Blanche album.

Gomez wrote “Selfish Love” with DJ Snake, Cuban-American pop star Kat Dahlia, and rising Boricua singer-songwriter Kris Floyd. The song’s not explosive like “Taki Taki,” but it’s a vibe. DJ Snake melds his tropical house sound with elements of reggaeton music. That saxophone drop is everything. Gomez sings in Spanglish about not wanting to share her man with anyone else. As Latin music goes more global, Gomez is a great ambassador to help extend its reach and push the sonic boundaries.

Gomez’s Revelación EP will be released on March 12. She’s nominated twice at April’s Latin American Music Awards. She’s up for Social Artist of the Year and Favorite Music Video for “De Una Vez.”

Selena Gomez’s Fans Are Disappointed by Her Premio Lo Nuestro Debut

Selena Gomez’s Fans Are Disappointed by Her Premio Lo Nuestro Debut

For Selena Gomez’s fans that were waiting for her to make her Premio Lo Nuestro debut, the final product was not what many of them expected. In what was a much-hyped moment of the awards show last night, the pop star appeared in a music video instead of delivering a performance.

Premio Lo Nuestro knew it had the viewership of Gomez’s fans.

Gomez’s performance, or “presentation,” was the most heavily-promoted ahead of the awards show that celebrates the best in Latin music. She was thought to be making her debut at Premio Lo Nuestro as a Latin music artist.

Premio Lo Nuestro knew that Gomez’s fans, the Selenators, were tuned in, so they saved her for the second last performance of the three-hour award show. Her special presentation was introduced by Latin boyband CNCO.

Her fans waited nearly three-hours… for a music video.

Instead of seeing Gomez hit the stage at the award show or appear in the pre-recorded virtual performance, her fans were treated to alternative shots of her “Baila Conmigo” music video. Even though featured artist Rauw Alejandro was there in-person, his part of the song was also footage from the music video.

After a night of impressive performances from artists like Daddy Yankee, Gloria Trevi, Ivy Queen, and Marc Anthony, seeing Gomez’s alternative music video of “Baila Conmigo” instead of a performance was a low point. This is not to say that the video was bad, but her fans were hoping for more from what was advertised as her Premio Lo Nuestro debut. A pre-recorded performance from home or the dance studio would’ve been better than this.

Gomez’s debut Latin EP Revelación will be released on March 13. She has so far previewed the hotly-anticipated EP with the singles “De Una Vez” and “Baila Conmigo.”
