You would have to see her personality to get the full impact of her beauty. From the pictures alone, she appears to have pretty eyes, skin and hair.

But "latinos" are a very composite group. You can look like anything and be a latino.
Case in point, Alexis Bledel.

Another Argentinian, though Wikipedia doesn't mention her mother's ethnic background besides being born American and raised in Mexico.

It's actually kind of interesting that Latino has come to mean a pretty even mix of native central/south Americans and the European colonists who tried to conquer them. While races like blacks and native Americans put more emphasis on how "pure" you appear to be, how closely you resemble your native ancestors. Though I suspect some Latinos would view people like Alexis Bledel as less Hispanic than others, they wouldn't view someone who looks more closely related to Mayans or other tribes as purer than, say, Salma Hayek.

I think in the US we have this "latino" thing confused. It is more a cultural designation than a racial one. But we have decided LAtinos are supposed to look "ethnic" with dark hair, dark eyes, olive skin. And ignore the fact that "latinos" come in all races and shades.

"Black" identity is very different in the US. In many places, like South AMerica and South Africa, there were various designations of "mulatto" that defined how much black ancestry you have. But in the US, we have a "one drop rule" so anyone wh as at leas 1/8 black counted as black. As a result, most americans, even with a very small amount of black ancestry, regardless of appearance, are expected to be "black."

But there are other issues with the young drop rule, although some people look more "black" than others, there is still a perception, that looking "less black" is better. Although this is seldom discussed in broader company. (And there is definitely a similar dynamic in latin america, asia and india with regards to skin tone.) Lighter skinned blacks have generally had better treatment and better opportunity. And even in the organizations for affluent african Americans and "black high society" put a priority on lighter skin and more "anglo" features. Take a look at images of black debutantes from the mid-century. Seeing one who looks like me is very rare indeed.

Race is a ridiculous construct growing more ridiculous by the year.

Yes, her nose is on the large side, and some of the pics were not as flattering, but I do think she is pretty.

Agreed, all of it.
