"Inoltre per rendere immediatamente familiari le protagoniste della serie agli spettatori, si è scelto di modellare i loro volti su quelli di celebri personaggi dello spettacolo. Quindi Bloom ha le fattezze della popstar Britney Spears, Stella ricorda l'attrice Cameron Diaz, Flora è ispirata a Jennifer Lopez, Musa all'attrice cinese-americana Lucy Liu, Aisha alla ex-Destiny's Child Beyonce Knowles mentre Tecna alla cantante P!nk."Basically in English:
"Besides making the members of the immediate family the protagonists of the series to the viewers,"Bloom was modeled after Britney Spears?! I never saw that coming. It's also been stated Bloom is based off his Iginio Straffi's wife Joanne. Originally, season two was supposed be about Bloom trying to find her parents but that was left off and turned into the movie "Winx Club: Secret of the Lost Kingdom." Bloom was based off a woman that Staffi met in university who was adopted and dearly wanted to know who were her real parents.
Trust me, even I don't know what that means.
"They chose to model their [Winx Club's] faces/personalities to those of celebrities. Bloom has the features/characteristics of popstar Britney Spears, Stella looks like actress Cameron Diaz, Flora was inspired by Jennifer Lopez, Musa is to actress Lucy Liu, Aisha is to ex-Destiny's Child member Beyonce Knowles while Tecna looks like the singer Pink."
This is from the article I segreto di Iginio Straffi (The Secret of Iginio Straffi) sourced to that statement:
"Il viso. Psicologicamente le cose sconosciute hanno un impatto peggiore nel nostro inconscio rispetto ai volti che già guardiamo e amiamo ogni giorno. Perché allora non prendere spunto per il volto delle winx da personaggi noti dello spettacolo?"
"The face. Psychologically, things that we do not know have a negative impact on our subconsciousness in respect to things that we are already familiar with and we like to see everyday. Why not profit from this and make the Winx characters look familiar?"So wait, does that mean Flora is supposed to look hispanic because she's modeled after Jennifer Lopez? The article never explicitly said that they were but images on the article seem to make it so.
