As the breakout star of the X-Factor-formed girl group Fifth Harmony, Camila Cabello was quick to prove her staying power as a chart-topping solo artist. Boasting a singing voice equal parts sultry and breathless, Cabello quickly made a name for herself by completely breaking free from the creative restraints that hindered her during her time in 5H. Now, with a chart-topping debut album under her belt along with multiple features and hit singles, it's clear that Cabello is to Fifth Harmony what Beyonce was to Destiny's Child. She has sex appeal, she has star power-- and she's not afraid to use it to take her seat at the top of the pop throne. 

With sun-kissed skin and flowing dark hair, Cabello plays up her mass appeal by carefully cultivating an image and social media feed equal parts girl next door and surprisingly coy seductress. Coming off as confident and unassuming, it's surprising to note that the "Havana" hitmaker was not always so certain of her own appeal. "It was only as I got older that I was like, ‘I like my brown eyes, I like my black hair, I like my skin. I don’t need to be blond and blue-eyed,’ says the "Crying In The Club" singer. "There are still things I’m insecure about, like my crooked teeth, but I think part of beauty is accepting imperfections. The more I meet people and see the world, the more I realize it’s those little quirks—a birthmark, a crooked tooth, a scar—that makes you you. As they say with art: Perfect is boring.”

Having recently caught the attention of Canadian heartthrob Shawn Mendes, it's no surprise that Cabello's social media feed is flooded with likes and comments by those who can't get enough of her jaw-dropping uploads.
