Where are all those “Real Latina’s” From MiGente and MySpace?

Mi Gente…

Looks like Latina Magazine is looking to tap into the beauty of Real Latina's, and they are having a casting call…so it is time that all of you "mi gente / my space models" get your weight up and see if your look actually represents a "Real Latina". I hope that some fuller figured women apply… 🙂

I will definitely be checking to see what that looks like…

PS…a warm saludos goes out to Shirley Miranda, creative director of Somos Arte.
