Fashion Icon: Selena

Hello Friends,

I (Clara, the Latina half of BFF) am writing this special post today in honor of one of my earliest fashion icons, Selena Quintanilla-Perez.

Selena was a tejano, Mexican-American singer in the 90's. During her short time on this earth, she had huge success among the Latino community,  and she became known not only for her music, but for her humble down-to-earth personality and her amazing fashion sense. Tragically her life was cut short, but before, she had begun working on starting her own line and opening her own fashion house.

Nonetheless, today I celebrate with you what would have been her 42nd birthday and share some of my favorite outfits worn by her. 

The now iconic bodysuit she wore when she sold out the Astrodome

This has got to be my favorite, the beading on the bustier top is fab.

and I chose this outfit because it's so 90's.
It is from her music video Bidi Bidi Bom Bom 

This gold dress she wore to the Grammy's where she won!

What are some of your favorite Selena outfits? Let us know in the comments.
