Dedicated fans of Adamari Lopez were in for quite a treat on Friday afternoon. We joined them to help welcome the Puerto Rican beauty to a special event hosted by Yoplait at a Winn-Dixie store in Hialeah, Florida on September 2nd, 2011.
She looked comfy-yet-chic in a pair of white J Brand Jeans, Theory blouse in peach, Louis Vuitton belt, Jimmy Choo wedges in tan, and Tous earrings.
As a breast cancer survivor, the partnership between Lopez and Yoplait for their “Lids Save Lives Campaign” was kismet. Committed to educating and reinforcing the importance of early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer among the Hispanic community, Adamari shared her personal story of breast cancer survival with shoppers, fans and Winn Dixie staff alike.
What touched me the most about her is how sweet, caring, and understanding she was with each and every person who waited in line to meet her. The crowd ranged from people who know her from television, curious shoppers who were taken over by her bubbly personality, and people who have somehow been affected by breast cancer.
During a private moment with one family, some tears were shared over a story of loss. Her level of humanity is one to be admired and her ambition to teach the masses about this diseases should inspire others.
We had the chance to chat to Adamari about her partnership with Yoplait, her role in the upcoming second season of Mira Quien Baila– the Hispanic version of Dancing with the Stars, and her excellent fashion sense! Be warned, to accommodate all our readers, the interview was held in Spanglish!
Make sure to tune into the second season of Mira Quien Baila on September 11th to support our girl Adamari Lopez when she competes against Erik Estrada, Christian Suarez, Stephanie Salas, Blue Demon Jr, Jose Manuel Figueroa, Alejandro Chaban, Elizabeth Gutierrez, Geraldine Bazan, and Prisila Angel on Univision.
