The mommy-of-three shared that it was Salma and Jennifer Lopez who helped her chose her look for her prom. "I was like, 'Whoa, okay, like we're not the same nationality but I feel her and I get her,'" she told L.A. Weekly about the women she could relate to, due to her body type. "And I remember I was going to my prom and was like, 'What glam look do I want for prom?' So, I looked up Salma Hayek's looks."

The Armenian social media guru continued to praise the Latinas for setting a new beauty standard. "I hope I've contributed maybe to a more ethnic look, so that other people that maybe look a little bit more like me can see that we're out there,” she told the magazine. “I mean, I never saw anyone with my body type in magazines, so seeing people like Jennifer Lopez and Salma really inspired me, and made me feel more comfortable and confident."
