Today the very first issue of Cosmopolitan‘s new magazine, Cosmo Latina, hits newsstands and gracing el primer cover is beautiful Dominican-Puerto Rican actress Zoe Saldana.

Inside, the star of the upcoming film, “The Words,” talks about how her Latin roots influence everything from her strong personality to the way she dresses:

“People think of Latina women as being fiery and fierce, which is usually true. But I think the quality that so many Latinas possess is strength. I’m very proud to have Latin blood.

“Latinas are fearless when it comes to fashion. They aren’t afraid to wear color. It can be the grayest, most wintery day and you’ll see a Puerto Rican mama in a yellow Tweety Bird Dress.”

We love that Cosmo decided to launch this mag with such a strong and fierce Afro-Latina and we hope that trend continues. Just in case their creative team needs a little help deciding who to put on the cover next, here are five proud Afro-Latinas we want to see land a cover.

    Yes I would love to see Yaya get a cover, still underrated after all these years.

    And though she’s covered a few Latina-centered mags, I think Sessilee Lopez is could candidate for a Cosmo cover.

      Melanie Fiona’s Guyanese (big up Guyanaaaaaaa!!!!) and Guyana’s not considered Latin American. Yeah…the whole “Latin American” designation is vague and confusing. It seems like it comes down to “Spanish speaking countries, and we’ll claim Brazil too because it’s so big and so cool.” hehehe.

    Cool article. The Black female diaspora is a big one, and it is beautiful to see it represented. Afro-American women, Afro-Latina, Afro-Brazilian, English-speaking, French-speaking, Portugese-speaking, African, West Indian, let’s just celebrate Black female diversity worldwide!
