people.jpgPeople en Español has released the 2007 list of Los 50 Mas Bellos (The 50 Most Beautiful), and we have to say that we are both enlightened and disappointed. What would you like, the good news or bad news first?

The Good News
For a few years it seemed that the same people always made the cut. This year we have a fresh new group of faces on the list and overall we feel like the folks at People en Español did well. Our hats off to the staff who worked hard at making this list happen.

The Bad News:
Look at the cover of the mag. Notice something odd? That’s right. That lady to the right in the green dress is Beyonce – as in ‘Not a Latina Beyonce’. While we admit that she is a beautiful girl and has tremendous talent, we can’t help but to point out that she does not belong on this list.

Los 50 Mas Bellos
is our turn to celebrate our people and now we have Beyonce on the list (not to mention the cover) based solely on the fact that she is marketing herself to Latinos (Exhibit A, Exhibit B, Exhibit C), when we could be highlighting another Latino instead.

Bad mistake, Peter. Don’t be a pawn in someone’s marketing strategy. Let’s not have this happen again.

The full list of Los 50 49 Mas Bellos after the jump.
