Selena Quintanilla may now be known as the Tejano singer who died too young at the hands of a violent super-fan, but back in her heyday, she was known as the gorgeous star who inspired viewers with her melodic voice and risqué fashion.
“As Selena’s sound evolved, so did her style,” a narrator says in the teaser of REELZ’s latest Murder Made Me Famous episode: Yolanda Saldivar.
“She was going for almost like rockstar-type clothing. So bustiers: Madonna wears them, Selena’s starting to wear them,” says Selena: Como La Flor author Joe Nick Patoski in the clip.
“It was a very bold kind of fashion. [Her father] wasn’t cool with that – like any father shouldn’t be cool with that,” says Corpus Christi Caller-Times journalist Tom Whitehurst.
“It’s not like dressing slutty, but it’s like you always show more on stage than you would in normal life… but it’s provocative,” adds Patoski.
