San Miguel de Allende may be small but we have our share of celebrities! And no, we don’t just mean the Antonio Banderas, Johnny Depp and Salma Hayek celebrities that live here temporarily while filming local movies here.
No, we mean bona fide celebrities from their various walks of life, the stars of their industry B.S.M. (that stands for “Before San Miguel,” for you novices).
The recent Faces & Flowers art event at Casa de la Cuesta boasted several such celebrities, like the two pictured here. Leah Feldon, the Fashion & Style Expert turned photographer, authored several books available on her Amazon.com page, like the famous title “Does This Make Me Look Fat?” and can be seen here on the Oprah Winfrey show, the Today Show and The View! Believe me, this girl knows how to captivate an audience!
Husband Rick Shlosser is no slacker, either, as can be attested by anyone with their own Wikipedia page! Rick played with Van Morrison–hence the “Wild Nights” song reference–and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, to name just two, but has a discography C.V. that dates to 1969. Yes, he has band stories that can entertain for hours. He’s a mean cook, too, especially when it comes to Italian food! Oh, and in the interest of self disclosure, they’re both good friends of your blogger.
Want a celebrity sighting? Forget Hollywood–just wander the streets of San Miguel or drop into the closest fundraiser!
