Gina for Kipling USA

Gina is the new face of the Summer 2015 campaign of Kipling USA.

We’d like to extend a warm welcome to Gina Rodriguez, as the new face of the Kipling Summer 2015 campaign!

The Kipling family is proud to announce that the Jane the Virgin star and 2015 Golden Globe Award winner is our new ‘Make Happy’ brand ambassador for Summer 2015. About the new relationship, Gina says, “To me, Kipling has always embodied the perfect blend of comfort and femininity. When I was a teen, I saw my first Kipling bag with the cute monkey and wanted one so bad but couldn’t afford it. I saved my allowances and eventually bought my first one all by myself. I kept that bag for over 10 years. Now I get to be a part of this beautiful movement. I love the way life works itself out – it’s full circle.”.

Julie Dimperio, President of Kipling North America, comments, “Welcoming Gina as brand ambassador for our Make Happy movement is an absolute delight. Gina’s approachable personality and carefree style align perfectly with the Kipling brand, and we’re honored to have her join the Kipling family.”

Please join us in welcoming Gina to the Kipling family, and look for some great fashion tips and tricks this summer as we continue to Make Happy with Gina as a part of our team!

Gina covers Adweek

Even before her headline-making Golden Globe win in January, there were already signs Gina Rodriguez was going to be a big star.

At its annual screenings for the global TV market in Los Angeles last year, executives with CBS Studios International noted the personal touch Rodriguez had with some 1,500 programmers from around the world. More importantly, the buyers were entertained by Rodriguez’s CW series, Jane the Virgin—for which she won the Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy Series, beating out the likes of Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Lena Dunham.

Networks in some 170 markets have bought the series so far, and it is expected to pick up more heat at the MIPTV event in Cannes, France, next month.

In the opinion of Armando Nuñez, president and CEO of CBS Global Distribution Group, the series (which originated in Venezuela) has proved to be so successful across geographic borders because of its “strong writing and great acting, making its outrageous but heartwarming premise believable. It gives a nod to the telenovela format, which also makes it an attractive show for buyers in many countries.”

For Rodriguez, who has appeared in films, on television and on the stage, her career slowly gained traction, first in New York and then Los Angeles, before it really caught fire with Jane. Here, the actress talks about joining her father on picket lines in Chicago, what she learned from Rita Moreno and the annoying part of social media.

(Warning: Some spoilers below if you haven’t watched Season 1 of Jane the Virgin yet.)

Adweek: When you first were given the script for Jane the Virgin, was it love at first read?
Rodriguez: One hundred percent, and that probably happens one out of every 200 scripts that you read. In the first five pages, I was like, “Who is this woman that wrote this?” [U.S. series creator, producer and writer Jennie Snyder Urman] is just brilliant. She’s my muse. I am absolutely in love with this woman because she’s writing about a girl who’s a Type-A personality, who’s super planned-out and who is able, in my opinion, to transcend the cultural boundaries that Latinos tend to have in the industry. Jenny continues to surprise me with each script. We read them about a day before the shoot. We don’t get to know anything about the future of our characters until then. She’s gained all of our trust beyond belief.

People Magazine Interview: Gina’s Journey to Stardom

Gina Rodriguez has always known she wanted to be a performer – even if she didn’t always look the part.

“I was a huge tomboy,” the Jane the Virgin star tells PEOPLE about growing up in Chicago as the youngest of three daughters born to native Puerto Rican parents.

“I remember being 6 years old – I was probably wearing joggers and an oversized T-shirt – and I saw these little girls in sequins outfits smiling and dancing at the Puerto Rican Day parade. I was like, ‘I want to be in those little sequin dresses.’ ”

Rodriguez, now 30, joined a dance troupe and continued to perform through high school, but it wasn’t long before she set her sights on acting as well.

When she was only 13, she ventured across town on her own to audition for a commercial against her parents’ wishes.

“I got the parent next to me to sign my parental consent form so they didn’t know that I didn’t have a parent with me,” Rodriguez says. “I ended up booking the commercial, so they called my parents. I thought I was going to get in so much trouble. But I was going to get paid for the commercial so they said, ‘Fine. You can do it if you put the money towards college.’ I said, ‘Done deal, baby seal. Let’s do this.’ ”
