AnyClip – 25 Selena Tattoos That Will Make Your Heart Go Bidi Bidi Bom Bom

Selena will forever be in our hearts no matter what anyone says. She blessed the world and us with her amazing Tejano music and truly lived as la reina. She might have been killed in 1995, but her memory lives on in our heart. There are also a few people who keep Selena’s memory alive via tattoos. How she felt about tattoos? We might never know but these fans are putting her on their bodies for life and they seem totally fine with the idea. Here are 25 Selena tattoos celebrating la reina.

That iconic movie title font is instantly recognizable.

The addition of Selena standing on top of it in her purple jumper is nice touch to really drive it home. But is it so amazing that that font is directly tied to that movie and our reina.

This iconic photo will never be old.

That is one expensive way to pay tribute to Selena, for sure. Just a regular, little Chinese character will run you close to $50 so we can only imagine how musch this rendition of the photo cost.

Nothing like some simple song lyrics to keep the posers at bay.

True Selena fans will be able to spot this tattoo coming from a mile away and what it truly means. You are probably singing this song to yourself right now, aren’t you?

Give her that virgen glo-up.

That’s right. There is nothing wrong with paying her the ultimate tribute and canonizing her. Who can argue that she is not among the angels after her tragic death.

Why not get the most recognizable lyrics on your body?

This is so damn adorable. The use of the rose to let you know without a doubt that this is definitely about Selena Quintanilla-Perez.

Minimal line work can tell a very strong story.

To most people this will just look like a rose but to a true Selena fan, this is everything. She loved roses and a touching way to remember her is to get a simple (or large) rose in remembrance.

Can’t forget about those Dinos, yo.

Selena became a name in her own right but it was because of Los Dinos that she started that climb into stardom. You should never forget the people that got you to where you are.

Turn one of her photos into a glam shot.

There is nothing wrong with tweaking her photos just a bit. It is actually a way to flatter the original since it now has a new life.

You are never too old to dig some cartoons.

This is eeeeeverything. From the sparkles to the color purple to her super cool hair. How are more people not in love with this take on Selena and her final concert?

Just the first name is enough.

Very few people have been able to reach the status that they are only known by one name. Others include Cher and Madonna. Seems like Selena is in good company.

Make it a little artistic by interpreting a lyric.

If you don’t know, that comes from “Como La Flor” hence all of the flowers over the phrase. This is such a cool idea that I might have to go out and get the same tattoo.

Día de los Muertos realness for the late queen.

momentsbyalyssa / instagram

Anything for Selena indeed. Some might think this is offensive but those people don’t know Mexican culture. This is how you represent loved one’s lost in the land of the dead.

On the nose tattoos are not bad.

mujerdemuerte / Instagram

“Como La Flor” wrapped around a rose is super literal but super classic. Got to love this take because it is probably exactly what she’d like.

Make her more of a pop culture icon.

Lotería meets Selena. We all know that La Sirena is known for her beauty and singing. Seems like exactly what we remember Selena for so…

Did we already mention Día de los Muertos?

nabiletorrestattoo / Instagram

Doesn’t matter because it is that awesome. This is what you do when you want to remember Mexican and Mexican-American loved ones when they pass.

Song titles can make the best tattoos.

We all know the significance of Apt. 512. There is a chico in there and we need to learn everything we can about him because he is the chico.

Selena adjacent tattoos are just as awesome.

princesaaztecamesita / Instagram

It doesn’t have to be an image of the actual singer to be a touching tribute. This little tattoo of the car that saved a stranded Selena is so awesome and super relevant to her memory.

Get a pin-up Selena because why not.

sanae_kawaii / Instagram

This is another iconic look from the incredible singer. Why not make it more modern by giving it a pin-up feel?

The Selena fan dog whistle for the ages.

sanae_kawaii / Instagram

She was the biggest fan of pizzas and Coca-Cola. She was even a spokesperson for Coca-Cola so it is really a good tribute to the late-singer.

Quote her dad if you want to make a real splash.

sanae_kawaii / Instagram

No one will ever forget this moment in the movie when her father is totally blindsided with the super forward and progressive outfit.

This is Selena if she was going to Coachella.

slow_n_low_tattoo / Instagram

Would she really go to Coachella? Probably. Selena did like dancing and listening to live music. After all, she made her start singing at fairs and festivals.

Honor her long overdue makeup line.

tattoopoolink / Instagram

It sold out so quickly you probably never got to get your hands on any of it. The fact that it sold out before you could buy it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t honor it.

Zombie Selena might be a bit much.

tattoos_by_danny / Instagram

However, who are you to tell someone how they can honor someone? Maybe they love zombies and Selena so this is the perfect homage.

Make Selena’s wax statue a tattoo.

valeriemunster / Instagram

Talk about meta. Rather than getting a tattoo of a real photo of Selena, you choose to get a tattoo of a wax statue based on a photo of the singer you are so in love with.

Juggalo Selena it kind of out there.

Hard to get behind something that seems to be way too much for any Selena fan to fully support.

Not Everyone Knows That Jennifer Lopez’s Famous Green Versace Grammy Dress Actually Launched Google Images

In Summer 2019 the Council of Fashion Designers of America will acknowledge what her fans have always known: that Jennifer Lopez is a fashion icon. On April 16th, the CFDA announced that Lopez will be the 2019 recipient of their Fashion Icon Award. Considered the “Oscar’s of Fashion,” the award has been bestowed on impecable dressers such as Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga. However, this is the first time she or any a Latina will be honored by the council as an Icon.

Ever since the world received their first glimpse of JLo, her genuine talent and impressive personal style have won her fame and fans. Whether she’s wearing couture or a tracksuit, Lopez has the confidence and personal style to own any look. We can’t wait to see what outfit she will rock at the CFDA Awards on June 3rd but — considering what we’ve already seen — we know it will be iconic.

Here are some of JLo’s most en vogue looks that prove she’s an undisputed fashion icon.

1. The most fly of the Fly Girls.

The first time the world got a real look from Lopez, she was showing off her moves with other dancers on “In Living Color.” Not only did the comedy show hype us to her dance moves, but it also introduced her cool-girl style. In addition to being one of the few people who actually looked good in the early 90s, Lopez was a fan of crop tops from way back when. Some things just never go out of style.

2. ¡Viva Selena!

For her part as the Tejano queen, Lopez borrowed some staple styles from another Latina fashion icon. When the public first saw JLo as Selena, there was an honest shock at how right she looked in the singer’s classic outfits. Selena’s purple jumpsuit, bustier, and even her casual styles were amazing on her. We should have known then to expect great things from the starlet — both in her career and in her future looks.

3. Glitz and glamour at the Oscar’s.

Lopez’s performance in “Selena” earned her critical acclaim and a nomination for a Golden Globe. Later that same year, she turned heads at the 69th annual Academy awards. Wearing a lacy light purple Badgely Mischka gown, JLo shined like the star she was quickly becoming.

4. The era of bikini tops and joggers.

On May 11, 1999, Lopez released her first music video for “If You Had My Love.” Besides bringing us a video with a unique voyeuristic look at cyberspace at the dawn of the new millennium, it also offered several hip looks. While all outfits in this video are still pretty stylish, this bikini top, jogger, and body jewelry outfit is quintessential JLo.

5. Jenny from the Block.

What’s needed for a good JLo music video? A romantic Male lead, amazing choreography and several fierce costume changes. That’s why “Jenny From The Block” is a great video and a fashion icon moment. It’s hard to choose just one chic fashion choice but Lopez made those Manolo boots famous so this look has to wins.

6. The dress that launched Google Images.

After the public saw Lopez in that legendary green Versace dress at the 2000 Grammy’s, they couldn’t get enough. In fact, searches for JLo in that dress was the most popular search query Google ever saw. Due to this, the young company decided to flesh out an image driven search platform — aka Google Images. Considering this dress launched a tool most people use every day, we think it’s safe to say that Lopez is a fashion icon.

7. Everyone wanted this look back in day.

Sometimes when we look back at clothing from decades past, we’re completely baffled by what we see. Other times, those outfits are worn by JLo and we realize we’d still like to cop this look. The early 2000’s saw velour track suits become popular and Lopez’s “I’m Real” video did a lot to spark that trend.

8. The Bennifer phase had its share of looks.

Fun fact: it’s thanks to the union of JLo and former fiance Ben Affleck that we have fun celeb couple names. Since Bennifer split, both have moved on to bigger careers and more compatible loves. JLo was going through a glam phase during their relationship and she made some really great fashion choices — including the gown she wore to the “Gigli” premiere. The movie ended as poorly as the relationship but at least we have this great dress to remember both by.

9. A little black dress that’s anything but basic.

In 2013, the Grammy’s enforced a new dress code collectively written by all the abuelas of the world. The new code banned thongs, any necklines cut too low and all hems cut too high. Pretty controversial for the often risky reward show. Leave it to JLo to stay within the rules while still maintaining making it sexy.

10. Giving the Sun reasons to be jealous.

Besides looking great on the red carpet, in music videos and in everyday life, JLo also brings her amazing style to editorials. In this 2013 “Harper’s Bazaar” feature, the star combined tall gladiator sandals, a canary yellow mini dress and soft, sunkissed waves. The styling is relatively simple but the impact very memorable.

11. A look that combines fashion and art.

Some times we see clothing that reminds us that fashion is as much art as anything found in a museum. JLo wore such a dress for the 2017 Billboard Latin Music Awards. Designed by Welsh designer Julien MacDonald, the shimmering black gown has intricate cutouts to make use of negative space. It makes for a show-stopping look that’s meant to walk the runway or red carpet.

12. Even her stage looks are flawless.

Lopez gives nothing less than visual perfection with her regular wardrobe but she brings it to a whole new level with her stage looks. Her 2018 VMA performance for MTV’s Video Vanguard is a great example of this. The golden bodysuit, sparkly thigh highs and sheer flowing cape make her look like a high fashion superhero.

13. Styled head to toe.

Sure, she’s an entrepreneur, movie star, award winning performer and fashionista but JLo hasn’t forgotten where she came from. Here dancer origins have brought her back to TV as a judge on NBC’s “World of Dance.” To celebrate season 2 of the dance competition, Lopez shared a series of pics featuring this ruffled blouse, golden harem pants and one of the most intricate braided updo you’ll ever see.

14. JLo’s style for “InStyle.”

Casual and colorful, Lopez blessed us with this ensemble in a December 2018 spread in “InStyle.” The tunic dress is Valentino Haute Couture as are the gorgeous emerald suede boots. Topped off with Chopard Haute earrings, this is an effortlessly hip outfit.

15. Green dress 2.0.

That “InStyle” spread gave us so much JLo fashion goodness that we’re still obsessing over it. One such bold look is the sparkly Valentino Haute Couture cape she wore with nothing else on. The star looks great in anything and we’re more than a little jelly. Still, we’re okay with it if it means we get to see great editorial styles like this.

16. As pink as she pleases.

Looking like she just stepped out of a telenovela, JLo shared this fine feathered frock on social media. The cut is modest but she still looks incredibly feminine and romantic in this soft pink color. The glitzy addition of those blinged-out earrings are just icing on the cake.

17. #GymGoals

This might seem like a weird flex, but this seemingly low-glamore ensemble is one of our favorites on this list. Who else do you know that looks this high fashion in a track suit? Nobody, that’s who. Her addition of shiny stilettos and oversized gold hoops has us really vibing with this complete picture.

18. This dress is a religious experience.

The MET Gala is all about pageantry and our favorite looks are always the ones that dress for that year’s theme. Lopez did great service to 2018’s theme of “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” with her ornate Balmain gown. What’s even better is that the hand embellished piece was later auctioned off to benefit HIV research. We love a good cause as much as we love this dress.

19. Cute and sexy all in one.

As an international star, JLo does her fair share of jet-setting. One such trip to the United Arab Emirates saw Lopez and fiance Alex Rodriguez stepping out to elite nightclub Base. There, the star rocked this adorable and flirty Balmain minidress. The combination of soft ruffles and peek-a-boo cutouts make for a style that is both sweet and sexy.

20. Simply jaw dropping.

If you ever doubt Lopez’s fashion sense, take a look at this awe-inspiring dress. Worn to the “Vanity Fair” Oscar after-party, this Tom Ford mosaic dress illuminated with hues of pink, purple, blue and silver. This gown photographed beautifully and was the absolute perfect choice for a master poser like JLo. The girl really knows her angles.

Forever 21 Debuts New Line Of Selena Merch ‘The White Rose’

A brand new line of Selena Quintanilla merch has arrived at Forever 21, and we’re all feeling muy excited.

The popular clothing retail store debuted “The White Rose” collection Thursday, with T-shirts, pants, hoodies and accessories celebrating La Reina de Tejano available in its stores and online. Prices range from $3.90 to $78.

On Friday, the late icon’s sister Suzette gave a sneak peak of the collection when she shared a video of herself sporting a hoodie with the “Como La Flor’s” singer’s face on it.

“Trying super hard to look cooollll in this new Forever 21 X SELENA hoodie,” she said.

Suzette, who famously played the drums in the Quintanilla family band Selena y Los Dinos, also attended a F21 meet-and-greet event at a Cerritos, Calif. location, where fans swarmed the shop in their Selena tops excited to take pictures.

“So much love and fun meeting everyone today,” Suzette wrote on Instagram after the event. “Saying thank you just doesn’t seem to really sum up how grateful I felt to receive all this love I felt today.”

But while most people are celebrating the new Selena-inspired gear and accessories, others have expressed disappointment, both in the brand and the Quintanilla family.

As for Forever 21, most of the items in the collection aren’t available in plus-size. According to the Revelist, of the 94 pieces, just six have curvy offerings, including graphic tees, one that’s not available yet, and plus-size jeans that are web-exclusive, and anyone with meat on their hips and legs knows how difficult it is to find a pair that fits, making in-store fittings necessary. Even more, while straight-size items include several crop tops, all the plus-size tops are full-coverage.

Several women of size expressed their disappointment in the collection’s lack of plus-size offerings, and Suzette, who also identifies as plus-size, weighed in.

“Hi, I totally understand but there is a couple shirts that are come in our sizes,” Suzette responded. “I really hope I can have the opportunity again to create a collection with a [lot] more for us plus size girls.”


Neither she nor her family, however, has responded to the second critique of the collaborative collection: That the Quintanilla family decided to work with a fast-fashion brand that is famous for sweatshop-like factories and animal abuse.

On Instagram, owner of the Etsy shop Barbarawarbara, called out the Quintanilla family’s ethics and double standards. The designer, who has created pins, pouches and shirts celebrating the singer, common among Etsy shops, revealed that the Quintanilla family threatened to sue her for inexpensive merch while teaming up with a big brand that has a troubling history, particularly for exploiting workers of color.

The debut comes almost two weeks before the 24th anniversary of the Tejana icon’s death.
