We usually see Fergie in black leather and knee-high boots when she’s performing with the Peas, but for her American Idol appearance last night she tried a more feminine retro look, wearing a Marilyn Monroe white halter dress, styling her hair into a deep side-part with soft waves, and showing off bright fuchsia lips and green nails (it was St. Patrick’s Day). Here at Latina, the votes are split over whether we like our Fergie fierce or girlie—what do you think?

Latina columnist Lynda Lopez sat down with American Idol judge (and her sister) Jennifer to talk about the pop diva's many style turns on the popular TV show. So far, J.Lo hasn't doubled up on a single style and it's one of the reasons we keep tuning in week after week to watch. Here, Lynda tells J.Lo what her favorite looks have been so far.

2010 Miss Universe Ximena Navarrete, who hails from Mexico, has just been named the newest face of L'Oreal Paris.
Navarrete is the second big-name Latina to join L'Oreal recently, following in Jennifer Lopez's footsteps. Undoubtedly, the beauty company hopes to tap into the sizable chunk of change that us Latinas spend annually on beauty products.

Last year, Christina Aguilera told Latina that she wants her red lips (which she paints on using LipSense Liquid Lip Color in Blu-Red, $22, senegence.com) to be her signature look.

It’s not that this look doesn’t work for her, but remember how chic her chin-length bob at last year's Golden Globe awards was? Or how blue her eyes looked when she had dark hair? We love it when she breaks out of her usual style!
