PEOPLE En Espanol Names the 50 Most Beautiful Hispanic Celebrities

Sofia Vergara, Ricky Martin, Daisy Fuentes, Perez Hilton, Pitbull, and Thalia Named in the 14th Annual Issue


NEW YORK, April 26 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — PEOPLE en Espanol’s “50 Most Beautiful” special issue features seven of today’s most popular Hispanic women — and one very lucky guy — on the cover. Sofia Vergara (ABC’s Modern Family) is joined by TV personality Daisy Fuentes, Mexican singer Belinda and telenovela actor Fernando Colunga, for the 14th annual “Mas Bellos” issue. The leading “Mas Bellos” women appear in dresses by Marchesa, Prada, Herve Leger, and Jay Mendel, with jewelry by Loren Ridinger.

People en Espanol’s issue features exclusive photographs shot by celebrity photographer Omar Cruz on location in Los Angeles, Miami, Mexico and New York, with images inspired by Mexico’s Golden Age cinema and telenovela icons. Sofia Vergara had the chance of a lifetime posing as one of Mexico’s most memorable stars, the late Maria Felix. “It was fun styling my hair and makeup to look like her, and mimicking her facial expressions. I was captivated by the character,” says Vergara. Other Bellos in the issue include Puerto Rican singer — and a veteran on the list — Ricky Martin, and newcomers like celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton and current Miss Universe, Stefania Fernandez, among others.

For the third consecutive year, invited users to choose their favorite celebrity who should be named in the magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful” issue. With 10 celebrity nominations, and after a near tie with Mexican singer and actress Eiza Gonzalez, Telefutura’s La tijera presenter Rodolfo Jimenez won with 67% of the votes.
