Vanessa Velez’s Studio

I have been following Photographer Vanessa Velez’s Icon Series Look Book getting the chance to be behind the scenes of the shoots. Her first Look Book Icon Sophia Loren was breathtaking, and now she will reveal in December another Icon that was one of my Idols back in the days!

Makeup Artist-Ana Garcia   Photographer Vanessa Velez      Model-Yamilette Arana

The lovely Curvy Model was Yamilette Arana, the makeup artist was Ana Garcia and the sneak peek of the shoot was amazing. It is my opinion that the success of these shoots is the combination, photographer, model, styling and makeup. I also got a chance to see Vanessa’s new studio and I loved it. It is simple and elegant, it reflects Vanessa’s personality. Just as soon as the Look Book comes out I will be blogging again so you can see the finished results.

Two beautiful models from Puerto Rico one thin, one curvy and both beautiful!!

The debate of the size of models in the Fashion World has been a hot topic for many years. Seeing how the world is embracing Plus Size Models is music to my ears especially in Puerto Rico. In this blog I am going to present to you two beautiful models from our Island that have one thing in common….their name!!

They are both named Ana….Ana Paola Figueroa from the recognized agency Element and Ana Cristina Garcia from IPM Models in New York, both models have been recognized in Puerto Rico for their excellent work and their beauty. Ana Paola is a thin model, Ana Cristina is curvy model, and they both look amazing.

I want you all to remember that diversity is another name for beauty, and every woman should be proud of their unique beauty embracing their beauty in all its diversity!

Five Beautiful Curvy ladies from Puerto Rico share why they love their Curves!!!

Five Beautiful Curvy ladies from Puerto Rico share why they love their Curves!!!

I find that loving yourself Curvy or Thin is so important because until you love yourself you’re not going to be a happy person. You need to learn to love you for you. Everyone is different and need to start embracing these differences. Loving yourself is one of the secrets of success. Love yourself and you will feel more confident when you go about your day. Feeling confident with yourself and your decisions helps you to handle situations with ease and worry less about what others will think of you. In Puerto Rico most of the women are curvy and I found five Beautiful Curvy ladies who told me why they love their Curves.


Model Azalea Firpi

I love my Curves because they have always been a part of me. I have always been Curvy, and Proud. My Curves have made me stronger in a society where usually thin models are the ones recognized. My body let’s me dance, model, study, have fun be a good professional and be in perfect health. I love being a Fashionista, always turning heads, my body is my temple and I accept it just the way it is!

Model Clementine Monroe

I love my Curves because I love myself, I accept myself the way I am and this leads to others accepting me just the way I am. I love my Curves because I am grateful that I found the confidence inside myself to accept them. Having Curves is my beauty, they are our beauty!

Model-Leemar Ago

I love my Curves, my body and everything about myself, because it is a wonderful creation made by God. This is why I live proud of myself and whom I am as a person, accepting myself is a priority in my life this is why I live such a great and full life. Long live Curves!!!

Model- Shasquia Diaz Santoni

I love my Curves because they have made me the person I am today, perseverant and loving where I am at this moment, always working hard to maintain myself healthy. I love them because I make people see that there are other sizes besides a size 0 and that we can also be sexy, and do anything that anyone else can…. I love my Curves because they are just simply me!

Model Tania Pagan

I love my Curves because they compose my personality, I am very proud of them.I do not let anyone tell me that I have to lose weight to obtain what I want in life because I am happy the way I am and can achieve any goal I want!

Tropical Curves Fashion Show in Puerto Rico was a mega hit!

Tropcial Curves Models and Blogger/Plus Size advocate Marta Rivera and Designers Nelly Trinidad and Yolyne Negron

Getting to produce the fashion show Tropical Curves was a dream come true for me, I had this idea in my head for months, presented it to Designer Nelly Trinidad and she loved the idea, remember it is until recently that mainstream designers use curvy models on the Island.

Dary Lee Lander Master of Ceremonies

Tropical Curves Model

First I chose a name for the collection and went searching for the  11 beautiful curvy models that would model them, because I am in charge of choosing the models for the designer, then we started the promos, made by Lisandra Falcon and it all came together, we got two great designers to present their collection along side Designer Trinidad, Grisel Barrios and Fernando Gantier, Israel Nieves owner of Divas for Ever and More let the models use his beautiful shoes. The Fashion Show was  presented on July 27, 2012 at the Marriott Hotel in San Juan.

Everything went smoothly, the models all got along great and had such a great time backstage, we had a full house, Dary Lee Lander an ex beauty queen was the master of ceremonies, she was amazing… and we had a group of dancers during intermission that danced to Tropical Music called Just Perfect Dancers….EGO TV came, Jesus Bernardo took the pics.  Ginny Barkley Editor of  Mujer Creativa and Inelda Santana Director of Style & Mode were also there. I want to share  some of the pics from the Fashion Show that were taken by Jesus Bernardo so you can see for yourself that the designs were just beautiful….
