Back in February of this year, “Roma” actress Yalitza Aparicio dominated fashion headlines after her appearance on the red carpet of the Oscars. The actress made her first appearance at the 91st Academy Awards as a Best Actress nominee for her breakout role as Cleo a maid of Mixteco heritage working for a family in Mexico City during the early 1970s. Aparicio had already had a big night, not only had she nailed a coveted nominee slot, she’d done so for her first role ever in a movie. And while awe over her talent was much talked about, it was the mint-green and silver metallic tulle gown she wore by Rodarte that caught so much attention.

The fashion brand has long been an established designer on red carpets but there’s no denying the actress has helped raise interest in its designers. The red carpet match of the designers and the actress proved not only to be a success at the Oscars, but it also proved worthy of a lasting partnership.

For the fashion brand’s latest lookbook, Aparicio was selected as a model.

The rising star wowed in the brand’s dreamy fashion shoot.

Aparicio appeared in the Spring lookbook in a polka-dot belted black and white dress and a pair of sheer gloves studded with pearls which also speckle her hair. She modeled the dress in a magazine that featured Hollywood veterans such as Gabrielle Union and Kirsten Dunst.

Aparicio appeared in simple colors and extravagant gowns.

For her other appearance, the actress could be seen wearing a black and white plaid dress that featured a ruffle color and puff sleeves.

Of course, it didn’t take long for reactions to Aparcio’s appearance to set fire online.

Fans of the actress were quick to call her a “reina” and other celebrities including “Mad Men” actor January Jones, who also appeared in the shoot, commented “Love. ❤️”

Aparicio’s feature is another reminder, that the indigenous actress has her heels dug into Hollywood and the fashion industry and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Back in January of this year, Vogue México honored the actress with a feature and photoshoot that served as an ode to her culture and home state of Oaxaca. Not only was she featured on the magazine’s cover, but she was also thrown a party at the Patio del Huaje en el Jardín Etnobotanico in Oaxaca.

While the finicky nature of Hollywood and its attention to actresses of color has a strong pattern, Yalitza’s star does not seem to be dwindling. In fact, her appearance in the lookbook nearly seven months after her appearance at the Oscars, and without any announcements of new roles, proves she must have a lot coming up for herself.

Growing up as a little brown girl, rarely (if ever) did I see a person that looked like me on TV. Sometimes, on Spanish-language programming, I’d see Latinas who had darker skin tones — but more often than not they were parodied versions of what white people assumed indigenous people to be. Unfortunately, those stereotypes are still with us today. However, thanks to Sesame Street, I did have a brown Latina role model that I could look up to, and that was Maria, played by the fantastic Sonia Manzano.

Now, another beautiful Latina — who was once unknown, but has captivated the world with her talent will do what Sonia once did for me.

Aparicio joined 3-year-old Muppet, Abby Cadabby, and the two had a lovely chat about believing in oneself, how imagination can help you achieve your dreams, and how to be persistent about your goals in life.

The brief segment began with Aparicio showing Abby on a globe all the places she’s been able to travel since the release of her Oscar-winning film “Roma.” Abby said in Spanish “when I grow up, I want to travel the world just like you!”

Aparicio said that she too dreamed of traveling the world when she was a little girl. Abby asked the Oscar-nominated actress what advice she had for her to make her dreams a reality, and Aparicio gave her the best response ever.

Aparicio advised Abby: “if you believe in yourself and work really hard, you’ll be able to accomplish all of your dreams.”

Then Aparicio told Abby to repeat the phrase over and over “if I can imagine it, I can accomplish it” so she never forgets how to reach all of her goals.

Now those are words to live by!
