They were the two most famous sisters of the Buenos Aires magazine, referents of beautiful vedettes with long legs and a bright smile of the 70s, who set a style with fire. Yesterday, at the age of 78, Gogó Rojo passed away, who together with Ethel (died in 2012) formed a memorable duo. Daughter of a couple of renowned couturiers from Santiago del Estero, she was baptized Gladys del Valle Rojo Castro at birth, and her pseudonym arose from the first word she spoke. She studied dance and choreography, a profession that led her to debut at the Maipo Theater as a member of a rock dance corps in a play starring Vicente Rubino, Nélida Roca and Alba Solis. After living in Spain, the Rojo sisters earned a leading place on stage, with great personality along with José Marrone, Jorge Porcel, Alberto Olmedo and Juan Carlos Calabró and ventured into the cinema. While Ethel continued with the entertainment world, Gogó moved away and settled in Spain and Brazil successively. Upon returning in the 90s, he starred in a one-man show in which he recounted his life, and then returned to ostracism for health reasons. Since 2009, she has resumed her career sporadically, and one of her last appearances on stage was in “Escoria”, by José María Muscari, who yesterday fired her on Twitter: “I want to remember you, happy, hard-working and entirely red heart. Fly high here on earth you gave us all your magic. ” Photography
