Magaly Alabau (La estrella) and Graciela Más (La monja) in the theatrical production, La estrella y la monja

In this photograph, the Monja (Graciela Más) is standing with her arms stretched out and with hands facing the audience as if she were a priest performing the blessing at a Catholic mass. Below her is La Estrella (Magaly Aabau), who is wearing a large feather boa. This photograph captures the split self of the star: the sexy character of the "white whore" created by the media, and the repressed "bit player," here dressed as a nun.
