This project has been in the works for some time so it is finally my sincere pleasure to share with you, images from the debut issue of Cosmopolitan for Latinas! From the fabulous folks who bring you the highly popular Cosmopolitan on a monthly basis, you can now get your Latina-specific editions twice a year with the premier issue hitting newsstands May 1st.
“Cosmopolitan for Latinas is the definitive voice of today’s bilingual Latina who is sexy, stylish and intelligent, and wants to see herself reflected in the pages of a women’s lifestyle magazine,” said Editor-In-Chief Michelle Herrera-Mulligan. “We talk to our readers like a best Latina girlfriend, and cover everything from fashion, food, relationships and careers in a fresh and engaging way.”
The beautiful Zoe Saldana was chosen as their first cover model–who better to represent the Latin-American woman than her right?! She was photographed by Yu Tsai and is wearing a low-cut halter jumper from Bebe.
During the interview, the Colombiana and Avatar star talked about being a Latina.
“People think of Latina women as being fiery and fierce, which is usually true. But I think the quality that so many Latinas possess is strength. I’m very proud to have Latin blood.”
She also discussed her time as a ballerina during her teenage years.
“I had to quit ballet because it felt like a part of me was dying inside. It takes a lot of courage to face up to things you can’t do because we feed ourselves so much denial…In dance, you use every part of your body except your voice. I wanted to start acting because I wanted to use my voice.”
This chica has literally kissed nearly everyone of my dream men including Michael Vartan, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zachary Quinto, and Sam Worthington (though it was really her avatar who kissed him but lets not get technical!). I want to be jealous but I just can’t because I love her!
