Latin Beauties 10
Latin Beauties - Nelly Furtado, Luciana Salazar, Pamela Diaz and more
Here is my tenth article about beautiful Latin women.
This time we have the usual actresses, singers, models and dancers, but a lot of them are from countries I haven't covered in this series like Chile, Ecuador, Argentina and Cuba.
So here are some short bios, pictures and links to sites about beautiful Latin women like Sonia Ferrer, Nelly Furtado, Luciana Salazar, Pamela Díaz, Myriam Hernández, Liz Solari, Marbelys Zamora and more.
A lot of these ladies you may not be very familiar with and some you may know quite well.
But if you have never heard of them...this is a good place to start.
Canadian singer-songwriter, record producer, and actress Nelly Furtado was born on December 2nd, 1978 in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada to Portuguese parents.
Nelly has released five albums since her debut album Whoa Nelly! back in 2000, and has sold over 20 million albums worldwide.
She has appeared in seven TV shows and movies, though usually as a singer doing performances.
The exceptions would be CSI: NY where she played a professional criminal accused of murder, and Max Payne, where she played the wife of Max Payne's slain ex-partner.

Luciana Salazar is a glamour model, singer and actress born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on November 7th, 1980.
She did her first television commercial at the age of four.
Luciana has appeared in four TV series, but appearing on the comedy show Poné a Francella is really what brought her into the public eye.
Some say her rise to fame was helped by her being the niece of former governor, Palito Ortega.
Ortega himself was a singer and actor before getting into politics.
Luciana is very popular and during the FIFA World Cup Germany in 2006, she was voted the Argentina national football team representative.
Liz Solari made her acting debut in High School Musical: El Desafio which was the Argentine version of High School Musical.
The film wasn’t a rip-off or bad copy, it was actually a Disney-branded feature film made in Latin America.
Liz played Anne-Claire, the adviser of the contest in the film, who is a former HSA student and now a famous singer and pianist.
She followed that by appearing in the 2008 TV series Atracción x4 as Paula Lacalle.

Pamela Díaz "La Fiera" is a Chilean model.
She was married to Chilean football player Manuel Neira, and she is constantly in the top ten among the soccer wives and girlfriends.
