Over at Hub Pages I have a Hub called The Top 18 Latin Beauties.
I recently redid the Top 18 list and was pretty surprised to see the gorgeous Dulce Maria jump all the way up from 18 last time to the number 1 spot.
Well okay, maybe not amazed.
I mean look at her.
I'd put her up against any of the current Hollywood beauties easily.
Though I do prefer the red hair to the brunette.
Dulce is a Mexican actress, singer, and songwriter that has appeared in over 24 telenovelas and TV shows since her debut in 1993 at the age of eight.
Of course one of her big claims to fame was appearing in Rebelde as Roberta Pardo Rey.
She also has a music career and recently released two albums, Extranjera Primera Parte (November 9, 2010) and Extranjera Segunda Parte (Jun 14, 2011).

Being the daughter of the director of The National Mexican Ballet Folklorica (Dolores Menchaca), Penelope naturally started out as a ballerina.
She then went on to join the singing group "Las Nenas" at the age of nineteen, where she was their lead singer for over ten years.

In August 2009, 12 Corazones: Rumbo al Altar, a spin off of 12 Corazone started, with Penelope as the host. This show has six couples competing to win the grand prize of a dream wedding.
She has appeared on eighteen different TV shows and series since 1998.
In 2010, Penelope became an author when she released the book "El Arte Del Cuchiplancheo" ("The Art of the Horizontal Dance").

Brazilian model Jeísa Chiminazzo was born on April 12th, 1985 in Muçum, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
Although she was born in Brazil, her parents are of Italian and German descent.
Jeísa was discovered at the age of thirteen by a Brazilian actor who refered her to a modeling agency.
She spent one year doing local modeling jobs, then her career took off when she signed with IMG Models in New York and began appearing in the Italian editions of fashion magazines like Elle and Marie Claire.
This five foot nine and a half inch tall beauty is probably most famous here in the US for being featured in the 2008 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and doing runway walks at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
Thought not yet in the same catagory as some of the more famous Brazilian supermodels (like Adriana Lima, Gisele Bündchen or Alessandra Ambrosio), Jeisa is considered one of the top runway models of today.
Here's a video of Jeisa's photo shot for the 2008 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in Nicaragua...
