Becky G totally owned this look by adding a hint of chola with the flannel and a bandana instead of a floral crown.

We’d like to call this, “Portrait with Chihuahua.” Becky G is embracing Latina beauty by serving us strong brows, trenzas and a dark lip. Can we bow down to her makeup? No but seriously girl, give us a tutorial.

The fashion is on point, the beauty, the culture. Look too fast and you’ll miss all that Tapatío in the stashed in the background. We want to know if this is how she goes dressed to her local grocery store because if she does, yes girl slay.


Frida Kahlo Look #4

I loved this picture so much…..

Patricia Tagliaferri is a Venezuelan woman with a message: “We need help.” Venezuela has been in the grips of a major recession. Basic household goods like tampons, food and even toilet paper have become scarce. How bad is inflation in Venezuela? A cheeseburger will run you $170 dollars. This woman’s cries for help puts a human face on the Venezuelan crisis.

Tagliaferri, a college graduate with a degree in computer sciences, cannot afford enough to make ends meet, even though she has a job in the public sector.

She is heartbroken over the life that her 2-year-old will inherit. “He deserves a better future than this,” she said in the video.

Tagliaferri admits that her mother, who lives outside of Venezuela, is able to help her by sending money.

But even with the help of her mother, Tagliaferri is still stuck in a horrible situation, where food is becoming scarce.

Food is becoming so scarce in Venezuela that people are looting grocery stores and overturning trucks to steal food. People are brawling in Venezuela for food as grocery stores sit empty with nothing to offer their customers.

The night before she recorded the video, three armed men stole her car in front of her and her family. Their 2-year-old son was there to witness the robbery.
