Rule 5 Saturday - Lele Pons

This week's Rule 5 paragon of feminine beauty is Lele Pons
Eleonora "Lele" Pons Maronese  born 25 June 1996) is a Venezuelan and American YouTuber, actress and singer.

Pons came to prominence on Vine before the platform was shut down in 2016 where she was the most followed woman and the third most followed viner with 11.5 million followers. She then expanded into creating comedy sketches for YouTube, where she has over 18 million subscribers as of August 2023. She has since acted in film, television, and music videos; released her own music; and co-authored a novel. She currently stars in The Secret Life of Lele Pons, a YouTube Original docuseries providing a look at her personal life, and hosts a podcast on Spotify called Best Kept Secrets with Lele Pons.

Pons was born in Caracas, the daughter of pediatrician Anna Maronese Pivetta and architect Luis Guillermo Pons Mendoza. When she was a child, her parents separated after her father realized that he was gay. She is of Spanish and Italian descent, and is the niece of Puerto Rican singer Chayanne.  She moved to the U.S. at the age of five and was raised in Miami. She graduated from Miami Country Day School in 2015 and moved to Los Angeles. She has said that she had trouble making friends in high school and would thus "get hurt to make them laugh". She has also described being bullied in high school: "I'm not like the cool girls—I'm the other girl. The one that's basically a nerd, but proud of that." 

On Instagram she admitted to getting nose job, providing this before and after comparison. I think she might have over sharpened it, but it looks like good work.
Pons appeared in the first episode of MTV's horror TV series, Scream, in which she was the season's first victim of Ghostface. She has starred in a number of music videos, including "Havana" by Camila Cabello, and "Downtown" by Anitta and J Balvin.  In May 2018, Pons released her debut single, a Spanish-language duet with Matt Hunter titled "Dicen". The YouTube music video amassed 10 million views in just four days. Pons has also had success in modelling.
