If you’ve been sleeping on Afro-Puerto Rican star La La Anthony’s style, it’s time to wake up. The career woman, born Alani Nicole Vasquez, has been in the public eye for over two decades, first on the radio, then as a TV personality, actress, New York Times best-selling author, producer, beauty entrepreneur, and fashion designer. Over these years, she has sharpened her fashion image to be consistently on point. Let’s take a look at 13 examples of the Latina’s fabulous style and a shout out to La La’s stylist, Maeve Reilly!
On Time in Neon Lime
La La is up on the latest trends, like ’90s flashbacks, and neon green. This look is fun and so in right now!
Menswear Inspired Rag & Bone Ensemble
You can find the Afro-Latina sitting front row at New York Fashion Week, donning fashionable looks from the designers. Take, for instance, this rag & bone outfit La La wore to their NYFW show.
She Knows How to Sparkle
Trends come and go, but style is about knowing what works best on you. La La knows how to dress her figure, wearing body-con dresses in flattering colors, like this Thai Nguyen Atelier gown she wore to the 2017 BET Awards.
Queen in Khan
La La knows how to dress like an icon. Just look at this Naeem Khan dress she wore to this year’s Harper’s Bazaar Icon Party — iconic.
Serena Williams had a 1950s-themed baby shower last year (entitled Shake, Rattle, and Roll —how cute!), and La La did not disappoint. Her look was pure ’50s, with a dash of WWII Rosie the Riveter vibes.
For the 2017 Angel Ball, the Latina shined in a camo-like Rani Zakhem Couture gown. It was glam and elegant, but with an unexpected twist!
Winning, Wakanda Style

It was an honor to serve on the board last night at the WEARABLE ART GALA (WAKANDA THEME) for @mstinalawson & @mrrichardlawson LOVE U BOTH! 💖what an AMAZING NIGHT giving back to the community & honoring Ms. Gloria Carter & @beyonce 🙏🏽thank you @sergiohudson for this gorgeous dress 🔥 #wearableartgala
This year’s Wearable Art Gala was Wakanda-themed. La La wore a striking, theme-appropriate gown by Sergio Hudson for the event.
Met Gala Glam in Thai Nguyen Atelier
Every year, the Met Gala is the event in fashion. La La balanced elegance and sexiness in a Thai Nguyen Atelier gown that featured a removable overskirt. So, she had the dress and the after-party dress in one!
Chic and Sheer
For the premiere of the New Edition film, the Latinx wore another chic Thai Nguyen dress. The Vietnamese designer’s glam, sparkly, and curve-celebrating clothing is a perfect fit for the star.
Faux Fur Fabulous
I don’t like fur, but I loooove faux fur. The drama it gives to otherwise subdued outfits is amazing. Perfect example: this glam NYFW look by La La.
“I Rock Tom Ford”
Vogue gave La La’s New York Fashion Week outfit a thumbs up. Get a better look at her Tom Ford (menswear!) suit here.
Shutting It Down in Silver
While in Miami, La La shut it down in this glitzy mini. Simple yet striking — the shoes add just the right touch of flair.
It is safe to say that La La loves herself some sparkle. Just look at this beautiful, glitzy Yousef Aljasmi dress she wore to Rihanna’s Diamond Ball.
