What’s In A Name?

BELOTERO borrows its name from a famous 19th-century actress and dancer Carolina ‘la belle’ Otero, who was born Augustina Otero Iglesias in Valga, Pontevedra, Spain. At the age of 20, Carolina moved from Lisbon to France to promote her burgeoning dancing career. It was here that she created the stage character – La Belle Otero. Otero grew into a beautiful, confident, not to mention intelligent woman. Within a short number of years, La Belle Otero became one of the most sought-after woman in all of Europe. It was once said by an admirer that her extraordinarily black eyes were so captivating and “of such intensity that it was impossible not to be detained before them.” Her legacy lives on.17
