The looseness of terminology

The current issue of Private Eye has an advert for Old Peculier in it, talking about a Latino lovely.

Now call me daft, but I managed to misread it to mean a lovely who was a Latino rather than a Latina. i.e. one who was specifically male. Given the picture shows a leggy brunette in a bikini, I started wondering about the millionaire also mentioned.
