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.

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

It’s 2021 and the Met Gala is back this year – after being canceled in 2020 thanks to a pandemic – with superstar poet Amanda Gorman being eyed to host the fashion event of the year. Given the 23-year-old’s show-stopping performance at the inauguration, the theme fittingly will be a celebration of America and American designers.

The Met Gala will return in 2021 with a very special guest as host.

Vogue’s “Oscars of Fashion” famously takes place on the first Monday of May. However, this year it’s been pushed back to September 13, in hopes that life will have returned to something closer to normal by then.

Epic poet Amanda Gorman is reportedly in talks to co-host the event alongside Tom Ford, who is the academy’s president. The breakout star of President Biden’s inauguration, Gorman is on the cover of the magazine’s May issue and the subject of a relentlessly glowing profile inside.

The black-tie gala, which raises funds for Met’s Costume Institute, is normally fashion’s biggest night and sees guests from Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B to Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and even Maluma.

The event was canceled in 2020 thanks to a global pandemic.

The world’s most glamorous party was canceled in 2020 because of COVID-19, which was (and still is) raging the planet at the time. There was a virtual event in place of the 2020 event, with celebs like Julia Roberts, Priyanka Chopra and Amanda Seyfried showing off their looks from home and stars like Mindy Kaling and Adam Rippon taking part in the #MetGalaChallenge, recreating looks from past years.

This year’s event will draw inspiration from all things USA.

The theme of this year’s Met Gala has not been announced, but Page Six says the night will be devoted to honoring America and American designers, following the 18-month-long COVID crisis in this country.

Recent past themes for the event have included “Camp: Notes on Fashion” (2019), “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” (2018), and “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between (2017). And don’t forget 2016, when Zayn Malik wore robot-arms to Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.

Madonna’s Daughter Lourdes Embraces Natural Body Hair In Beautiful Selfie With Mom

Madonna’s Daughter Lourdes Embraces Natural Body Hair In Beautiful Selfie With Mom

Grooming habits should be a matter of personal choice, but thanks to generations of the patriarchy telling women how they should look, what they should wear, and how they should take care of their bodies, that isn’t always the case. Thankfully, more and more brave women are embracing their natural beauty and that includes their own body hair.

Lourdes Leon showing off her natural arm pit hair is the normalization of body hair we all need.

Whether it’s on the red carpet or in a photo with her mom, Madonna, Lourdes Leon has a relationship with her body hair we can all admire. For instance, he two posed for a rare selfie on April 10, and Leon’s natural look moved us another step closer to normalizing visible body hair.

The sweet image is captioned: “Like Pieces of your Heart Walking around outside of you #lola.”

‘Lola’ is the nickname of Madonna’s eldest child, whom she shares with Cuban personal trainer-actor Carlos Leon.

The fashion icon’s post has received more than 440,000 ‘likes’ with many fans praising her daughter’s decision to embrace her natural body hair – with comments including “two beautiful, strong women” and “beautiful mother with her gorgeous daughter.”

Leon has never been shy about embracing her natural beauty.

Her mother has pushed beauty boundaries for decades, so it makes sense the 24-year-old model would choose to do the same. In November 2018, Lourdes generated headlines when she showed off her unshaved armpits and legs on the red carpet at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Gala, just weeks after she turned heads for the same reason on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week.

Earlier this year, in February, she also showed off a glimpse of armpit hair in a new fashion campaign for Marc Jacobs. 

It seems that Lourdes may even have been inspired by her famous mom when it comes to ditching the razor. Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar in 2010, the singer said: “Going to high school, I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn’t fit into that.

“So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits.”
