Chiquis Rivera has captured the attention of her fans again with her recent photo shoot in which she played Selena Quintanilla. Rivera donned an outfit that reminded her followers of the late ‘Queen of Tex-Mex’. She wore a long-sleeved blouse and black vinyl pants, boots, and a silver bag. What stole the show was the cap she wore, similar to Quintanilla’s. Her fans expressed their love for the outfit in the comment section, comparing it to the singer’s iconic style. They also admired her recent weight loss.
Rivera attributed her healthy-looking appearance to a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise. She mentioned in an interview for ‘Ventaneando’ that she stopped drinking beer and soft drinks eight months ago. Rivera also revealed that she had been suffering from hypothyroidism, which is the reason why her previous attempts to lose weight did not work.
Chiquis Rivera has shown her admiration for Selena Quintanilla before. In a 2016 interview, she mentioned that she admired her ability to sing and dance at the same time. Rivera posted a video on her Instagram account on February 13 dancing to Quintanilla’s hit ‘Fotos y recuerdos’.
Rivera received the Best Banda Music Album award at the 2022 Latin GRAMMY ceremony, held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. She caught everyone’s attention with her gold-colored dress created by designer Rey Ortiz, who has worked with personalities such as Kylie and Kris Jenner. Rivera revealed that the dress was “the prettiest she’s ever worn in her entire life.” She did not restrict herself to this dress, and at another point during the ceremony, she wore a dress in silver.
Chiquis Rivera’s journey has not been easy, but she expressed her pride in her accomplishments nonetheless. She acknowledged that it took a lot of effort to get to where she is but feels that every tear she shed was worth it.
