JLo Firsts: Most Beautiful

First Latina To Be Named Most Beautiful

None of the women who were named Most Beautiful by People Magazine from 1990-2010 (including Michelle Pfeiffer, Jennifer Anniston, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, and Jodi Foster), were Latina. On April 13th, 2011, People finally gave the cover of their Most Beautiful issue to a Latina: Jennifer Lopez! Not only was J.Lo the first Latina to be named People's Most Beautiful, but she was also the first to admit that it takes work to stay looking so fabulous. "The thing is, it's part of my job," said Lopez. "I don't want anybody thinking it's easy. It does take time and it's hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody's friend!"
