Mexican actress and singer Paulina Rubio will seek to find a niche in the competitive fashion world by launching her own line of handbags and shoes via the Internet.

The "sensual, modern and informal" collection, which will be distributed via the Web site JustFab, was presented at a mall in the Los Angeles suburb of Glendale.

"It was something that had to happen: the fact that I always have to be good-looking, moving around on stage and also running through airports inspired me greatly to be able to come out with a line of handbags and shoes and also some accessories," the star said in an interview with Efe.

"I think I'm one of millions of women who are moms, who have to go to work and (come home), who are practical, who run around the world. To some extent, we're also flirty, we like to be comfortable and glamorous," added Rubio, who has sold more than 20 million albums. EFE
