Thalia commented, “I am so honored Macy’s has chosen me as an Icon of Style for 2013. To be recognized as a Latina Icon of Style means a lot to me and am grateful to Macy’s for all they do to promote Hispanic Heritage. I am proud of my culture and think it comes through in everything I do – my passion for my family, my music, my writing and my personal style. I hope to always inspire and to be a positive Latina influence for others.”
