While we’re in the Hispanic Heritage Month, I would love to share with you my beloved Maria Felix who turned down Hollywood to focus on her career in Europe and Mexico. She became a superstar and an icon until she died at 88. She worked with the best directors of Europe and Mexico, and was the muse of many artists, including Diego Rivera and Agustín Lara (one of the best composers of Mexico) who wrote her the classic “Maria Bonita”. She was also one of the top clients and inspirations to Cartier, who did an entire collection inspired by her, and named a watch after her nickname “La Doña”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No voy a traducir en español la historia de María Félix, porque si hablas español debes saber quien es. Hoy la quiero recordar y compartir con el mundo en este, “el mes de la herencia hispana”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Étant donné que nous sommes dans le mois du patrimoine hispanique, je voudrais partager avec vous ma bien-aimée Maria Felix qui a refusé Hollywood pour se concentrer sur sa carrière en Europe et au Mexique. Elle était une superstar et icône jusqu'à sa mort à l’âge de 88 ans. Maria Félix a travaillé avec les meilleurs réalisateurs d'Europe et du Mexique. Elle a été la muse de nombreux artistes, dont Diego Rivera et Agustin Lara (l'un des meilleurs compositeurs du Mexique) qui a écrit le classique «Maria Bonita». Elle a également été l'une des principales clientes et inspirations de la maison Cartier. Cette maison de luxe a réalisé toute une collection inspirée par Maria Félix notamment une montre : « La Doña» surnom de Maria. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mariafelix #ladoña #mariabonita #hispanicheritagemonth #cinema
