HellOOOOOOOO contradiction!

"she is a prime minister and was in cannes, and on the cover of french vogue 2003"

. . . yet, earlier . . .

". . . but there are NO pictures of here at all!"

She was on the cover of a magazine, but there are no pictures of her. A magician, that one!

"some say she is an internet hoax"

That is sounding like the best answer to me, at the moment. lol

Okay, this is kind of fun!

- Googled her, nothing but message board references.
- Google Image-searched her, nothing.
- IMDB'd her, no entry.
- Went to www.beau-latasha.com, which some message board entries claimed to be a valid site for more info, and although it may have been once upon a time, it is no more.

I say hoax at this point, but I thought it might be interesting to gather together as many of the "rumors" about Beau-Latasha, just to see if there are any grains of truth at all:

From here, here & here :
  • She's "from overseas"
  • She's French
  • She looks Spanish/mixed
  • She's mixed French, Black, Brazilian, Indian
  • "She sort of looks like a mixture of singer vanity in the 1980's and model adriana lima"
  • "5'9 huge bedroom eyes, skin like butter,36c-19-36 (according to brother man magazine)"
  • She's 5'9" 36-18-36
  • She's a supermodel in Europe, especially big in Sweden
  • She's also an actress
  • She's been on billboards and magazine covers in Europe and Africa.
  • She was on the cover of French Vogue 2003
  • She was in Paris Vogue in 2004
  • She's on "the new cover of Beautiful Magazine" (4/2005)
  • She's in "the new Coca Cola ad" (2004)
  • She's in "the new Lamborghini ad" (2004)
  • She was in a Spanish Citroen ad in 2003
  • She's also done ads for Mitsubishi and Nike
  • She's done advertisements for Mikimoto & Daimler-Chrysler
  • She's a spokesmodel for Harry Winston (2004)
  • She was in a Times Square billboard for Citroen
  • She was in a Coke commercial in 2003
  • She plays "Joli", a superhero, on a French television show
  • She was on a show with "Rachelll from BET" on "the Carribean Network" in 2000
  • She's "the most beautiful girl in the world according to Mouiseri Laureaux, President of Intl Companies Inc."
  • Fashion photog Scavullo supposedly said of her "Only in a million years does a woman this beautiful come along"
  • She's a preacher
  • She's a Televangelist
  • She's dating a Prince or a King
  • She wore a billion-dollar diamond bikini to the 2002 Cannes Film Festival that caused a stir
  • She turned 20 in 2004

This tickled me -- I actually *did* find something - her ministry is registered on christianity.net at http://gospelconnection.com/ministries_detail.cfm?ministryid=3369 , and apparently the address of her ministry is "P.O. Box 703211, Europe 74170 US". Hee.

So now that she's been so hyped-up, when does the movie/TV series/e-mailed pics with virus attached start coming around?

Beau-latasha is definitely a real model person, no internet hoax as stated before. She is however a visual phenomenon, she is quite stunning in person as well as on many billboards around the country of Greece. Continue to search with a beauty like hers she is bound to show up somewhere real soon.

Generally, links dont stay active for that long, especially ones that are just pictures. What worked a year ago does not necessarily work now. You'll find that alot if you contiue resurrecting old threads.

Well, as long as it is resurrected, I can report that there still aren't any pictures...there are however many, many repetitions of what feels like an official mantra of sorts: "Beau-Latasha is the most beautiful woman in the world!"

...and that's about as far as I go on the subject, because the more you research the more inane 'who's the cutest?' websites you turn up, and after awhile it just gets horribly dispiriting.
