#RealBeauty, Surreal Experience

I’ve been DYYIIING to share this for some time, and I’m so, so, sooo thrilled to finally be able to share my excitement. 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!

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.

PASSIONista: Nicolette Bell

There are more sides to fashion, and many, many more sides to the people in fashion, than meet the collective eye. Beyond the shows and catwalks, we discover people with a myriad of interests and dreams who aren’t just fashionistas, they’re passion-istas. No one can ever accuse Nicolette Bell of wasting a single moment of her time. Since the beginning of the millennium, she has taken multiple runways by storm–first she burst onto the local fashion scene as a fierce and feisty young model with PMAP, then she took to the skies as a flight attendant with Emirates globe-trotting around the world....
