A Latina Seamstress To The Stars Is Going Viral On Twitter After Her Son’s Mother’s Day Post
Updated: May 11, 2020.
If you were on Twitter, Instagram, or TikTok for Mother’s Day, you know that Latinos were out and about flexing about their love for their mamas. While many of us opted to share words of love and throwback photos of our beautiful madres, some decided to celebrate the labor and hard work their mamas have done over the years to get us, their kids, to where we are now.
While many of these posts got attention, none captured our hearts quite like this one created by Twitter user @MrAcosta89.
In a series of images shared to his Twitter account, the self-described “son of immigrants” from Ecuador shared that his mother is in fact that seamstress behind some of the biggest red carpet moments in celebrity fashion.
That’s right, according to Acosta, he’s blessed with a mother that has dressed the likes of Lupita Nyong’o and Riri.
Now after a bit of digging, we were able to find that the dresses, which were worn by Lupita Nyong’o, Saoirse Ronan, Millie Bobby Brown, and Rihanna were actually designed by Calvin Klein. But, whose needle and scissors poured over every seam? This mama’s! What’s more all four dresses continue to be praised and highlighted by fashion magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue. Even to this day.
No doubt, this Latina is pretty incredible, and just about everyone who saw the post thinks so too.
Just about everyone praised Acosta for highlighting the hands that made these iconic dresses.
And so many Latinas vowed to one day achieve such celebrity status so that they could also hire his mother to create their dresses.
According to Acosta, his mother has lived in the United States for over thirty years.
And while she’s apparently not really interested in learning English or being a social media star, she is getting quite the following online.
