Laura Sanchez is probably best known to most American AfterEllen.com readers as lesbian police officer Pepa Miranda on the Spanish drama Los Hombres de Paco (Paco’s Men).
Sanchez’s portrayal of her character, and the relationship between Pepa and forensics expert Silvia (played by Marian Aguilera) has us swooning over her, whether she’s in uniform or otherwise, and is one of the reasons Los Hombres de Paco was the winner of AfterEllen.com’s 2008 Visibility Award for Best International Scripted TV Series.

But to the rest of the world, the 27-year-old is better known as an international supermodel, a former GQ Spain “Woman of the Year” who has been featured in more fashion shows and magazine covers than we can count.
One of the hottest things about Laura Sanchez is that she’s able to change her look and style so easily, keeping us guessing what she’s going to do next.
Even if you didn’t vote for Laura Sanchez for this year’s Hot 100, can you see why so many other AfterEllen.com readers did?
