On Wednesday night, Procter & Gamble hosted a special event called “Nuevas Latinas Living Fabulosa” that featured a panel of talented Latinas, including Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez, Orange is the New Black stars Selenis Leyva and Diane Guerrero, radio personality Angie Martinez (AKA “The Voice of New York”), Entertainment Weekly Correspondent Nina Terrero and fashion expert, Lilliana Vazquez.
P & G brought this incredible group of women together to celebrate Latina trendsetters and personal stories of confidence, strength and success. And the charming panel did not disappoint, opening up about everything from body image (I wear a size 4, size 6, maybe an 8 when its that time of the month, and I wont change for any industry”) to the struggles of Afro-Latinas in Hollywood (Did I ever feel like I didnt want to be Afro-Latina? Absolutely not!”).
The eclectic group of inspiring Latinas also revealed how the women in their families — especially their abuelitas — helped them become the confident trendsetters they are today and discussed the need for all Latinos to unite as one (This is the nueva Latina. How do we educate about our separate, specific cultures and then how do we unite as Latinos?”).
The event also featured a “Chicas Night Out” beauty bar with free styling consultations and gifts from Crest, Clairol, COVERGIRL, Olay and Pantene, as well as an intimate performance from Sony Latino artist Raquel Sofia and a live dance performance from Janet Jones, the founder of Vixen Army.
In addition to being fabulosas, our Latina stars also looked fabulous on the red carpet! Check them out in the photos below!
