The April and May spring magazine covers have been commanded by some of the most sought after Latinas in Hollywood. In the month of April you can find Jennifer Lopez gracing the cover of US Vogue and Sofia Vergara on the cover of InStyle magazine. (Sofia was also included in the team of “TV Features” beauties on the cover of May’s Vanity Fair.)
May brings you two well known fellow “Bandidas”. First, you have Penelope Cruz on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar and a double whammy by Salma Hayek who covers both Lucky Magazine and Marie Claire@Work’s cover. It’s undeniable that these women have made an impact not only in movies, TV, music, fashion but also in business. After reading the interviews to each one of these Latin power houses you are left viewing them as more than just drop dead gorgeous women in couture gowns at red carpet events. They are mothers, wives and hardworking, smart individuals with goals, ambitions and what drives them the most…their heart. One Style at a Time shares some excerpts from these interviews and salutes these captivating and inspiring icons of today.
Penelope Cruz in Harper’s Bazaar:
On how she describes herself: “I’m a worrier. I am living for every day and trying to have less fear, less worry. But I have always worried about everything; it’s in my nature. It’s the thing that makes me suffer the most.”
Sofia Vergara in InStyle:
Sofia talks about her self awareness of her looks and how it has open doors for her career. She is also keen on acknowledging that without depth besides good looks you will not get very far. “Not everyone is Miss Universe, but everyone has something… spectacular hair, nice legs, great boobs that they can play up,” she shares.
Jennifer Lopez in US Vogue
On her split with Marc Anthony: “Without going into detail…it’s just really, really sad. And look, we are still going through it, and it’s emotional sometimes and difficult. ‘She added: ‘We’re still friends – and we’re parents but it’s going to take time. It’s tough.”
Salma Hayek in Marie Claire @Work:
On people who have a hard time accepting her as a businesswoman: “Because I have a background in a different field, it can be hard to negotiate and make a good deal for myself. People always underestimate me. But if you stick around long enough, act out of conviction, and try to be honorable in everything you do, good things will come to you. I have seen karma work in this business.”
Salma Hayek in Lucky Magazine:
On Botox: “Trust me.. I’ve been tempted, but I resist!” she insists. “Plus, if you freeze a muscle in your face, other muscles have to compensate! And once you stop, what does that look like?”
