Per Harper's Bazaar, MAC cosmetics will release a Selena collection titled #MACSelena inspired by the late Latina singer Selena Quintanilla, whose final album Dreaming of You was released in 1995, four months after she was fatally shot by her her fan club president. The Grammy-winning artist was the subject of the 1997 film Selena, which starred Jennifer Lopez in what would become known as the actress' breakthrough role. Selena remains an inspiration for many singers, including The Real co-host Adrienne Bailon, who performed Selena's song "I Could Fall in Love" after revealing that she stopped singing because she didn't like the sound of her voice.
MAC Senior Vice President, James Gager explained why she's the perfect candidate to collaborate with the company, whose past partners have included Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.
"Selena's talent and beauty, inside and out have, have left a colourful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades," he said. "We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies M.A.C.'s philosophy. We are so excited to announce a Selena inspired M.A.C collection debuting in the latter part of 2016."
Images of the product line aren't yet available, but we can't wait to see what MAC has in store!
