National Hispanic Heritage Month began today, September 15! To celebrate, I’ll be posting fan art of Hispanic/Latino celebs all month long.
First up is actress Roselyn Sanchez. She was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
I absolutely loved her as Carmen Luna on Devious Maids. Her character is basically like the one friend you need in your girl group to keep the gossip interesting.
Roselyn Sanchez is expecting a baby soon, and she just released a children’s book earlier this month called Sebi and the Land of Cha Cha Cha.
Enjoy this digital fan art I found of the actress over on Deviant Art by Ghanaian artist luxuryzz (Denzel Oduro).
He captured her smolder so well!
See the original fan art here.
Step aside, LBD, the little white dress is comin’ for ya.
On September 9, Emma Roberts attended the premiere of her new film Who Are We Now at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.
She posed for pics on the red carpet wearing a cute collared mini dress in white paired with a beige top handle bag and embellished black pointed toe heels.
What makes me love this outfit the most is the fact that she mixed all these neutral colors together. I could never pull that off!
I also really like the sleeves of the dress. Without the bell sleeves the look would be way too serious!

I’m not gonna lie, August 2017 was pretty fun.
As expected, some amazing tunes were released during the month. I had to cut my list down or else this monthly favorites would be basically all music.
Here are my favorites in pop culture and entertainment for August!
Favorite News Articles
1. Target is launching a line of $5 wines. I repeat: TARGET IS LAUNCHING A LINE OF $5 WINES.
2. This artist made a Van Gogh painting out of gummy worms. The idea seems fun but then ants are sort of a species that tend to like sugar…
3. Companies like Hertz started cashing in on the 2017 solar eclipse. They got so excited and overbooked, then ended up having to cancel reservations. What even.
4. Justin Trudeau fell out of a kayak. And he might have done so on purpose?
1. “Alone Together” by LEISURE. These guys are just phenomenal. So much groove and chill!
2. “Hurt Nobody” by Andrew Belle. I wish the tickets for his NYC show weren’t sold out so I’d have a chance to hear this live.
A few days ago, Eva Mendes alerted her fans via Instagram about a few new pieces that are now available from the Eva Mendes Collection at New York & Company.
In the photo, she wears one of the new dresses in the collection, a pleated velvet dress in a shade of light blue.
What I love most about this dress is how it fuses a fun look with the pleats together with a more serious velvet texture. You could easily wear this to any sort of function.
Below is the original dress (marked with *) and an alternative to help you copy this look.
1. New York & Company, $89.95 *
2. REVOLVE, $268.00
Today, Zendaya Coleman turned 21! I honestly didn’t realize she wasn’t yet legal before.
Zendaya is one of my fave multiracial celebrities. I love her eclectic sense of style. It matches her personality so well.
Speaking of style in this piece of fan art by Alina that I found in a collection on Tumblr, Zendaya wears a white blazer with a black lapel, a chambray top and some gold bling. So classy.
I also adore that shade of pink lipstick on her!
If you haven’t already seen Zendaya in Spiderman: Homecoming, this is the perfect opportunity to do so over the Labor Day holiday weekend!
Izabel Goulart was all pretty in pink today at the Venice Film Festival.
The Brazilian model wore a pink semi-sheer long sleeve dress, looking radiant as ever. I love how innocent the dress looks on her, as it shows off very little skin. Even though the dress is semi-sheer, Izabel still leaves something to our imaginations by choosing to wear a body suit underneath.
With this weird transition weather happening while it’s still technically summer, this is the perfect dress choice for a fancy dinner or party.
See below for two dresses inspired by the look.
1. Lulu’s, $78.00
2. GS Love, $27.99
I’m convinced that this song is infectious.
Yesterday I learned that Sesame Street’s Ernie, Rosita, and Bert did their own version of Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi’s hit “Despacito”.
Yup. It’s called “El Patito.”
In lieu of this, let’s feast out eyes on these adorable chibi versions of Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi by Laura C Breezy (@lauracbreezy) on Instagram. She specializes in chibi celebrity fan art, some with anime eyes and others with human features. Although Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi take on the former, it’s insane how realistic the resemblance is!
And yes, I’m completely aware that I left the Canadian out of this post.
See the original fan art on Instagram and watch the Sesame Street version of “Despacito”!
