15 Latina Celebrities in Fashion (Past and Present)

Latina celebrities are more than models, actresses, and musical performers. Today, when they step off the red carpet they venture into different roles—like driven entrepreneurs. And with the fashion industry being a huge money maker, it only makes sense that they’re taking on the role of fashion designer.

When I first started researching for this post, I honestly thought the same names would come up. But, after a few hours on the Internet, I found 15 Latina celebrities in fashion from the past and present. I learned a lot about these ladies and the mark they’ve made in the industry. Whether they succeeded or not, they’re definitely opening the door for other aspiring Latina designers. I can definitely appreciate that.

Here are 15 Latina celebrities in fashion, past and present…
