Latina Fashionistas Had The Best Year Ever And Here Are There Most Stylish Moments of 2019
In a year full of jaw-dropping fashion and innovative couture, we’ve seen our fair share of impressive looks. Runways, red carpets, Instagram feeds and the covers of the most respected fashion magazines in the business have shown us glimpses into this glamorous and bewitching world. In seeing these magical moments, we can’t help but focus upon the ones that feature our favorite Latina celebrities. After all — you know what they say — Latinas stay winning, so, these just happen to be the most fierce, the most captivating and the most memorable fashion moments of 2019.
1. JLo’s Versace comeback.
The dress that launched Google Images inspired thousands of additional image searches this year when JLo revamped the iconic Versace piece and wore it to the 2019’s Milan Fashion Week. Though it’s essentially been 20 years since the star first wowed us with the green gown, she basically looked just as stunning as she did back in 2000. Seeing her walk the runway at one of the biggest fashion events of the year, in one of the most recognizable pieces of couture ever, made this a huge fashion moment for 2019.
2. Cardi B for Vogue Magazine.
When Cardi B arrived on the reality TV and music scene, it was obvious that fashion was her passion. Her music video outfits, red carpet looks and everyday style all point to someone who cares deeply about design. Honestly, Cardi deserves several spots on this list because her 2019 has been glamorous af but her January 2020 “Vogue” cover is the crown jewel of the year. Cuddling with her daughter, Kulture, the rapper is featured on one of four of the magazine’s January issues dedicated to relevant fashionistas. Besides being open and unapologetic in her magazine spread, Cardi also made history by being the first Afro-Latina to grace the cover of the magazine.
3. Yalitza Aparicio for Rodarte.
After actress Yalitza Aparicio’s breakout role in the critically acclaimed “Roma,” she quickly became established as a sought-after face in the fashion world. Becoming the first Indigenous woman to appear on the cover of “Vogue Mexico,” her role in the industry seems to be changing the monotony of white-only models. In fact, she has become such a popular figure in fashion that she was utilized in Rodarte’s romantic Spring Collection. Decked out in dreamy clouds of black and white puffs and kissed with a scattering of pearls, Aparicio posed with other models in Rodarte’s whimsical world.
4. Demi’s double Halloween.
Halloween and fashion go hand and hand and if you’re a celebrity and aren’t taking advantage of your star power to go big during spooky season, what are you even doing with your life? Demi Lovato didn’t come to play with this year’s Halloween. She applied her love of fashion to the holiday and prepared very elevated costumes. Her first was an homage to French Queen Marie Antoinette. Complete with a cinched waist, powdered face and blonde wig, she looked just like the tragic queen. One great costume wasn’t enough so she took on a gender-bent Pennywise. Lovato’s version of “It” looked more fit for the runway than a haunted house and we kind of loved it.
5. Becky G at the MTV European Music Awards.
Becky G is having a really great 2019 — both professionally and fashion-wise. Besides entering into the world of cosmetics with her many collaborations with ColourPop Cosmetics, the pop star was also introduced to the Asian market via a musical collab. The singer was featured on the K-Pop cover of “Chicken Noodle Soup,” reaching international fans and their avent garde fashion. She also made a big impact in Europe when she was invited to preform at the MTV European Music Awards. There, she wore a golden and bejeweled outfit while preforming for the crowd in Seville. When you factor in the gazy, hi-lo gown she wore on the red carpet, it was definitely one of the most fashionable nights of 2019.
6. Lupita Nyong’o at the MET Gala.
The MET Gala always promises to be a yearly event that provides the most fashionable moments of all. Celebrities always go all out — that is if they actually know what the theme means. The 2019 theme was “CAMP Fashion,” meaning style that embraces bad taste and ironic value. Lupita Nyong’o perfectly captured this theme with her mix-matched ensemble. For this night, she wore a classic Versace star patterned dress with added rainbow feathered ruffles to her shoulders and matching folding fan. She completed the look with golden fist combs stuck in her overly teased hair. On any other day, this would be a fashion don’t, but for the MET Gala’s CAMP theme, it was perfection.
