The Afro-Latina model sported the same pale green Valentino one sleeve dress the On The Floor singer wore to the Academy Awards in 2003. She posed in an old-school beauty shop, which was covered with bright blue murals and graffiti. The photoshoot set completely embodied the feel of a busy New York City salon where you’d probably get the most flawless blowout while listening to some throwback reggaeton classic.

Of course, the Puerto Rican native keep it super couture with her perfectly sculpted bronzed look and fabulous voluminous hair texture.
