Photo Shoot with Mario Testino (!!!)-Part 2

(continuation from “Photo Shoot with Mario Testino (!!!)”) When it was time for us to have our hair and make-up done, we proceeded to another floor where we were given white robes and terry-cloth slippers to change into, while in another room racks upon racks of designer clothes were being steamed and accessories and shoes laid out. As I mentioned earlier, I expected that my wavy hair would be given a blow-out, but to my surprise all it got was an expert scrunching or two from the masterful hands of Christiaan Houtenbos, so that my hair looked as close...

Photo Shoot with Mario Testino (!!!)

This was it!!! The day had come. I woke up earlier than usual from excitement (though truthfully, I barely slept the night before), and I got ready and packed some of my clothes which could possibly be used in the photo shoot later that day.

This past January was a whirlwind of unexpected experiences, and a definite affirmation that things can happen in real life that surpass even our fantasies. When I received a surprise overseas phone call about the possibility of being part of a global campaign that has long championed women’s uniqueness, diversity and authenticity (along with being the top ad campaign of the 21st century–I know because I googled it), I was thrilled! Personally I’ve always believed in...

Fashion On Point

The spirit of the times is all about freedom, movement, creative self-expression…and the modern Filipina captures that zeitgeist and makes it her own. She takes a turn towards modernity with a nod to tradition, playing with fashion and infusing it with an easy elegance and a lighthearted spirit. As the world around her continues to change, she is always ready to confidently–and gracefully–make that leap and move with the times.    Modern Filipiniana pañuelo-inspired navy lace gown: Tippi Ocampo/ Model: Rissa Mananquil-Trillo/Make-up: Model’s own (Happy Skin)/ Photos: Ito Ocampo Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook share...
