Born María de la Concepción Lorena Villar in Mexico City, Velázquez debuted in 1955.[vague] She competed in Miss Mexico in 1958 and placed second. Afterwards she was appointed Miss Mexico 1960, although she refused to represent Mexico in the Miss Universe pageant.

Velázquez played varied roles in the 60's, from a vedette, to a cowgirl and even as the queen of vampires. She also played two antagonic roles in a film, as queen of a far away planet and her twin (picture). In the 70's, she made the transition to television. Since then, she has alternated between the large and small screens.

She is the step-daughter of actor Víctor Velázquez and older sister of actress Teresa Velázquez.
