Someone asked the other day if anything good had happened in Cuba since the rise of Fidel. I was not quite quick enough to come back with “Daisy Fuentes was born in Havana,” which is certainly true and, to my way of thinking anyway, very good. If you haven’t seen her lately, well, here’s a shot from last fall’s New York Fashion Week, where she’s on the front row at the Carlos Miele show:
Not sure who her friend is.
You can’t tell from this shot, really, but Fuentes is one of the few celebrities who seems to have retained her fondness for the toe ring; in fact, she’s generally seen with two of them.
And this tidbit from her Wikipedia bio actually caused me to do a spit take:
Fuentes learned to speak English while watching I Love Lucy episodes.
Which is more, you know, than the late Desi Arnaz ever did.
Daisy Fuentes turns 47 tomorrow. “How is this even possible?” wails the guy on the cusp of 60.
