These 9 Latinas Were Turning Heads With Their Stunning Looks For The Met Gala

The Met Gala is the party to see and be seen at, and this year was no different. Known for prompting stars to wear their most gravity defying and extravagant outfits, the Met Gala is always a feast for the eyes. Here are the photos of the Latinas who utterly owned their moments on the Met Gala white carpet.

Selena Gomez went for simple elegance wearing Coach.

Gomez’ choice in dress is the perfect example of something that is simple and playful while holding a bit of elegance and class. The Texas-born actor has recently signed a deal with Coach so it only makes sense she rocked this dress on the white carpet.

Salma Hayek rocked it in Balenciaga.

Salma Hayek took the little black dress look to a different level with this ensemble. The Mexican actor paired her flowy black dress with some killer blue boots and the look is pretty stunning.

La La Anthony was sheer brilliance in this Thai Nguyen Atelier dress.

La La Anthony stepped into the Met Gala scene fresh off her split from Carmelo Anthony. In her IG post, she dropped him a not-so-subtle message, “Unbreakable.” Tbh, La La is flawless in this sheer dress and she looked incredible.

Adriana Lima owned her daring neckline in Alberta Ferretti.


Necklines don’t get much deeper that Lima’s sexy and chic black dress. The Brazilian model was able to avoid a wardrobe malfunction when her dress slit started to open a little high. Either way, she was stunning.

Gisele Bündchen gave Met Gala attendees all back in Stella McCartney.

Ready! ?? Pronta!

Simple, slick, and metallic was how the Brazilian model went with her Met Gala outfit. Her husband, Tom Brady, matched her perfectly with his silver velvet jacket and black pant suit by Tom Ford.

J.Lo kept it simple and clean wearing Valentino.

J.Lo gave the Met Gala scene a timeless touch of Old Hollywood from her gown to her hair and makeup. The singer and actor looked marvelous with her classic look and she sure knew how to pull it off.

Of course, A-Rod accompanied Lopez to the event.

Selena Gomez Flaunts Kidney Transplant Scar in Bikini Pic, Says “I feel Confident In Who I Am And What I went Through”

Selena Gomez Flaunts Kidney Transplant Scar in Bikini Pic, Says “I feel Confident In Who I Am And What I went Through”

Selena Gomez won’t hide her scars from the world.

On Thursday, the Mexican American singer-actress posted a photo to Instagram that instantly made headlines. In the photo, she was wearing blue one-piece half-zip bathing suit from her friend’s new swimwear line La’Mariette.

But it wasn’t the bathing suit that turned heads, but the scar that Gomez proudly displayed on her right inner thigh.

In the caption, Gomez opened up about her body-acceptance journey, specifically in regards to the scar she received from emergency surgery after her 2017 kidney transplant surgery.

“When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar,” she wrote in her caption. “I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up. Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through…and I’m proud of that. T – Congratulations on what you’re doing for women, launching @lamariette whose message is just that…all bodies are beautiful.”

The photo is notable because Gomez’s scar was first captured by paparazzi in 2018 while she was on a boating trip in Australia.

Back then, Gomez didn’t have control over narrative or how her body was presented to the world. But now she does. And a change like that makes all the difference.

Fans immediately praised Gomez’s bravery, adding comments like “You are so strong and powerful” and “Thank you for showing our scars are beautiful and all bodies are beautiful!”

A sufferer of lupus, Selena Gomez has had a long and difficult health journey. In 2017, she received a kidney transplant from her good friend and fellow Latina, Francia Raísa.

Gomez has previously been candid about how grateful she is to Raísa for saving her life. “My kidneys were just done,” Gomez explained in an interview with The Today Show. “That was it, and I didn’t want to ask a single person in my life. The thought of asking someone to do that was really difficult for me. [Raísa] volunteered and did it.”

But the scar that Gomez was displaying in her latest Instagram post was actually the result of an emergency follow-up surgery. According to Raisa, shortly after the kidney transplant, Gomez ruptured an artery. Doctors had to rush Gomez to the operating room to remove a vein in her leg and rebuild a new artery in order to keep the kidney in place.

As of now, Gomez’s body has healed, but as she implied in the caption above, she is still in the process of healing from the emotional trauma that comes with health problems. She truly is an inspiration to us all.

Yalitza Aparicio Stars In Dior’s Women-Centric Film Series

In the two years that have passed since her debut as an actress in the 2018 Academy Award-winning film Roma, Yaltiza Aparicio has established herself as a Hollywood “get.” The Indigenous actress has appeared countless times on the cover of magazines, ones like Vogue México and Vanity Fair, and has been featured in ad campaigns for designers like Rodarte. So it’s no surprise that she has now been tapped to be part of Dior’s new campaign “Dior Stands with Women.”

As part of an effort to celebrate women across the film, beauty, and health industries Dior has launched its “Dior Stands with Women” campaign.

On Monday, the fashion brand announced it had launched a series of short films honoring women and their contributions to the industries and communities which they occupy. The campaign features actresses like Yaltiza Aparicio, model Paloma Elsesser, dancer Leyna Bloom, Cara Delevingne, Charlize Theron, Parris Goebel, and others.

In a statement about the campaign, Dior announced their intent in a post on Instagram. “Inspired by the exceptional women who have marked its history, Christian Dior Parfums unveils a series of short filmed portraits that give a chance to speak to extraordinary women,” it reads.

Speaking in the portrait series, Aparicio explains “For me, being a woman means being strong, always holding your head up because they tell you what they say, you must be sure of what you are capable of,” she went onto say that as “as an ambassador for UNESCO, my role is to represent indigenous communities with dignity. Give them a voice and visibility, which is something that we have lacked for a long time… Women have fought for many years for gender equality. It is not about being superior to men, it is about having the same opportunities, that in your work they give you a fair salary and not simply because you are a woman they pay you less or that they consider that you have fewer capacities simply because you are a woman.”

Speaking about their journeys, actresses Cara Delevinge and Charlize Theron touched on being unapologetic and part of male-dominated industries.

Check out Yalitza and the others in the Dior campaigns below.
