EXCLUSIVE: 3 Fashion & Beauty Tips La La Anthony Lives By


Living a bicoastal life, La La Anthony (formerly Vazquez) has learned a lot of beauty and fashion tips that keep her at the top of our list of the most stylish Latinas around.

Pulling from her experience as the jet-setting wife of basketball player Carmelo Anthony, and star of her own reality TV show, La La’s Full Court Life, the gorgeous Boricua shared with us the three main tips she lives by to stay looking great while on the go.

La La Anthony's Confession: Obsessed with Shoes!

Her number one skincare tip? “I don’t care how tired I am, I always take my makeup off at the end of the night,” La La said. “I just feel so dirty and disgusting if I don’t, so I’m always using makeup wipes no matter what, and I think everyone should to keep your face looking healthy.”

When it comes to fashion she sticks to two basic theories: “I know it’s been said before, but a sexy LBD is a must. You’re always going to have those times when you want to go out with friends and need a go-to dress that’s going to turn a couple of heads without being over-the-top, so I think that’s essential in every woman’s wardrobe," she advises. 

Personal Essay: Yo Soy Boricua

Her last tip is all about inner beauty. “Looking fierce is more about confidence than what you’re wearing,” Anthony points out. “If you’re confident you could be wearing a tank and jeans and as long as you know you look good when you walk out, that’s how people are going to perceive you. It’s not about getting expensive clothes, it’s all about your confidence, which is what makes the outfit special.”

Truer words have rarely been spoken, so don’t forget to work it ladies!
