Best friends and stars of the reality show Empire Girls: Julissa and Adrienne which airs Sundays on the Style network, Julissa Bermudez and Adrienne Bailon, sat down with The Fashion Spot recently and spilled on how their heritage has influenced them.

"I think my style is a little more vibrant and sassy because of my upbringing," shared Julissa. "I was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in Queens, so my Caribbean influence along with my urban Queens setting adds a unique flair to my style."

Adrienne highlighted how much she loves her culture. "I love being Latina and I love being feminine... I love feeling sexy," she said. "I refer to my style as Cha-Cha Queen."
