Review and Photos by Niva BringasThe hot and spicy Latin upstart, Paulina Rubio lifted her skirt and showed Chicago why she's a woman you can't take your eyes off of. Rubio means blonde or fair-haired in Spanish. What's the word for "hot body" in Spanish? It might be a better fit.
Paulina made her entrance in a pink faux fur coat, skin tight mini-skirt and little girl high heels. This girl can dance. Weaving between her cadre of dancers, Paulina twirled and high stepped like a forbidden ballerina on an adult music box. She has an uncanny and natural stage presence. Her voice is also something to be reckoned with, at once high, but softly understated, she did a bilingual version of her hit song "Yo No Soy Esa Mujer" in Spanish and English. She hit the rhythmic and traditional core of "The Last Good-Bye" which was accompanied by a rather lively Mariachi band.
Rubio is transforming herself from a Spanish movie star into a pop sensation in the States. It shouldn't be long before big-name American directors will be knocking on her door.
