Viva La Luna!
Here's a "mejicana" I'm really into right now. I've been seeing her around LA at different "art" related events but just saw her doing her amazing act at the Dita Von Teese show in Hollywood.
Even though only 3'10" Selene is a showstopper "Vintage Glamour Hollywood Girl" and all Latina!!! She represents that underground Burlesque scene I love so much in Los Angeles and seems to be popular with many west coast latinos.
I love her jet black hair, her bangs and the beautiful red lips she usually wears. She's also got amazing big dark eyes that she loves to play up! Selene is part Betty Page part Marlene Dietrich and even some Lucha Villa!
Check out her website at www.seleneluna.com where I got a kick from her describing herself as a "barely legal Mexican!" While you are there, look at her videos which include her appearances on the "Margaret Cho" show and some of the funiest videos including one in which she plays a mexican gardener :)!
Here are some pictures. The one on the motorcycle was from the Dita show...
Miss Luna you're cool girl!

I wanted to post some shots from a fashion show (Harper's Bazaar in Miami) One of the "celebs" I worked with was Gabriela Spanic. If you've followed "novelas" in the last few years you for sure know about her. Also, a couple of years ago she shared her spousal abuse story on "Christina"
She has a "big" and fun personality and an AMAZING voice! She was really cool and open to anything I wanted to do... She's also very tall. Here's a picture of us working backstage (I had her apply her own mascara over two sets of fake lashes. Also, I'm posting a picture of the actual finale of her segment in the fashion show!
I wanted to post an article that appeared on the April 2009 issue of Better homes and gardens.
I was asked to speak about how to wear bright colors... Know what I always say and believe it's true?
It's all about the intensity--I think everyone can wear most colors and it's all about how you apply it and really how much of it you put on.
Best advice? Stay away from bright matte eye shadows--they can really be a nightmare to blend and diffuse. Even a bright blush can look gorgeous if applied correctly.
Enjoy the article..
