Selena Gomez and 5 Other Latina Celebs Turned Designers

What can’t Selena Gomez do? The 25-year-old Mexican-American is a singer, actress, philanthropist, and now she’s turned designer, crafting her own collection of handbags alongside Coach. The collaboration, which officially launches on September 1, features the Selena Grace bag (available in Selena Red, Selena Black Cherry, and Selena White) that comes complete with two inspirational inscriptions: “Love yourself first” and “To be you is to be strong.” This is signature to Gomez who is always empowering fans with the importance of self-love.

For the limited-edition Coach x Selena Gomez collection, the “It Ain’t Me” singer also designed a wristlet, ID case, and bag charms. We couldn’t be more excited to get our hands on everything!


Gomez is also not the only Latina celebrity-turned-designer — here are a handful of other ladies that will have you leaping for your wallet.

Eva Mendes — New York & Company

In 2013, Eva Mendes unveiled her first capsule collection for New York & Company. Mendes wanted her line to be affordable and accessible, while helping women look great and feel good. “I would never make anything that I wouldn’t want to wear,” she shared in a behind-the-scenes video. Four years later, Mendes is still creating stunning pieces for New York & Company that you can get your hands on right now.

Demi Lovato — Fabletics


If you’re looking to get your fitness on in super cute attire, then look no further than Demi Lovato’s latest venture. The “Cool for the Summer” singer made some ‘cool for the gym’ clothing in collaboration with Kate Hudson’s Fabletics line. Prices for the Demi Lovato Fabletics collection range from $24.97 to $79.95, but you can get your first outfit for only $19 by signing up as a VIP member.

Eva Longoria — Eva Longoria Collection


Eva Longoria’s fashion line was originally the result of a partnership with The Limited. But not much longer after launching her collection, The Limited closed its doors. That wasn’t the end of Longoria’s journey into the world of fashion, though. The Mexican-American star went on to continue her Eva Longoria Collection, selling items via her own site, evalongoria.com. “I’ve been sewing since the age of seven so this entire journey has just been an amazing experience for me,” she notes on her website.  

If you shop Longoria’s pieces right now, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross for victims of Hurricane Harvey.
