Cubans: Daisy Fuentes

Daisy Fuentes

We all know Daisy Fuentes is unspeakably gorgeous, but it is her entrepreneurial spirit and willingness to break barriers for Latinas everywhere that has us most attracted. Fuentes became the first Latina VJ on MTV in 1993 and went on to host shows like America’s Funniest Home Videos and events like Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. In addition to her hosting duties she graced magazine covers, appeared in ads for Revlon and American Express, and even launched her own clothing line. You go girl!
