The cast of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice has never looked better! You can thank former Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza (and modeling icon Patricia Velasquez) for infusing the motley crew of stars with a ton of Latina beauty and smarts.

Mendoza’s charity of choice is the Latino Commission on AIDS, an organization she’s been involved with since 2008.
