She would “rather be dead than basic.”
Choriza’s Instagram account proves there are some beautiful looks behind her humor. Her glamorous outfits are inspired by her heritage and she looks drop-dead gorgeous in them. Choriza also seems to get her eyeliner perfect every single time, so season 3 queens had better beware of “The Spanish Beauty.”
