Yalitza Aparicio, the Mexican actress who hails from Oaxaca, is known for her starring role as Cleo in Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma, the first Netflix film to garner a coveted ‘Best Picture’ Oscars nomination. Apart from being the newly-appointed queen of the small-to-silver screen, the film’s breakout star is now turning heads with her stylish Hollywood looks. So let’s break down her secret to always looking picture-perfect, starting with how she manages to gain a few inches off the red carpet with the help of a single outfit.
