Austin's own Elizabeth Flores as People En Español's 51st Beauty last year.

You’re sexy and you know it?!  Well now the world can know it too!  People En Español is once again looking for their 51st Most Beautiful Person in the world and you could be among the finalists being considered if you submit your picture before Thursday, February 23, 2012.  This is the 5th year in a row People En Español has partnered with Yahoo! Inc. for their “50 Más Bellos” edition.

What are they looking for?

A previously undiscovered beauty that they can feature in their print and online editions later this year – you can submit a picture of yourself or nominate someone else who you think would be worthy of such a title.  On February 24th the top 25 finalists from all the entries will be announced.  These folks will have about a month to garner support in the form of votes, and on March 23rd Yahoo! En Español will announce the “Bello 51.”

What does the winner get?

The 51st Beauty will share print and online space with this year’s 50 most beautiful celebrities, as well as travel to New York (all expenses paid) to attend the “50 Más Bellos” gala where many of the other super star beauties will also be in attendance, and will partake in a professional photography session for their magazine photo.  A makeover is part of the deal too.  Oh yes, and did I forget to mention the winner also walks away with $5,000?  Now you’re listening, huh?

How do you enter?

It’s very simple.  Just visit 51bello.com and upload your pictures.  You can also visit the Official Entry Rules while you’re there.

Last year’s winner, Elizabeth Flores says the experience of being selected as the “Bello 51” was unforgettable – the mother of two, a third on the way, used part of her earnings to purchase a professional camera and to take acting classes.

“It definitely was a fun 15 minutes (of fame),” she concludes.

If you do enter let me know!  I’d love to keep track of your entry and help you garner some votes.  Beautiful people, go upload your pics!
