Annebisyosa Afterparty

Last Friday, I was lucky enough to get access to Anne Curtis' Concert's Exclusive(invites only) Afterparty at Luxxe at Vudu. It was a great party filled with Cebu's media and most fashionable crowd (seeing famed fashion Director Robbie Carmona is an example). Drinks and food were flooding in as the crowd waited for the star of the night, Anne Curtis, to arrive. When she arrived, I was more than glad to see her up close in person for I am a huge Anne Curtis fan. The party was super fun and the food and drinks were great. I love that party!!!!

Kritiqued- Jennifer Lopez's Vogue US Cover

I was watching American Idol last week when they unveiled Jlo's Vogue April Cover. I was so stunned by it that I immediately felt the need to blog about it, I was busy these past days so i haven't found a time to blog until now.

Jennifer Lopez, gorgeous as she always is, is wearing a red dress from Bottega Veneta with red and gold accessories to match the beautiful dress perfected by an "earth-smoky" eyes(jlo signature)and that luscious pinkish red lips(dont really know the shade).  Shot by Mert and Marcus, the photos are stunningly gorgeous as they again show how glamorous and fun red can be.

Here is a sneak peek of what's inside Vogue's April issue.Gorgeous isn't it?

I think the cover is just Fab, just perfect to top Jlo's previous Vogue cover.  What do you think?

"In fashion, you are as good as your last work."

One of the things I've learned from one of the best person I've ever met, Luis Espiritu. I was most of all challenged and inspired to really strive hard and exceed my norms to really excel and love what I'm doing even more the moment I met them nicest people like Luis and the rest of the team(they are too many to mention) in Manila.

Now, I am ready to prove myself and to show the world what I can do and this is just the beginning of it all cause I have all the inspirations and the perspiration to make it big. Long way to go for me.

This shoot I am really proud of because this is a fruit of imagination beyond norms, struggles and hard work. It took me weeks to put this shoot together and make it happen, been turned down by photographers and models several times and been demotivated a lot before I took a deep breather and  made it. Several weeks ago, I promised a good friend of mine,the designer of these lovely accessories, to do a shoot for her and showcase her extraordinary accessories. So i did my best to put a shoot together despite the low budget and less time.

Luckily for me, I  met a very talented photographer(I worked with her for the figura shoot) and introduced me to a stunning model with extraordinary bone structures perfect for the shoot. I then scheduled the shoot the week after and she was so kind to let us use her studio.

Originally, I planned to do this shoot outdoor with sheer dresses and big animals as props but this will just over shadow the magnificent accessories(the star of the shoot) so instead, I  decided to do it with exotic harmful insects and some creatures found in nature. The feel should be a mythical creature wearing stand-out yet wearable accessories dashing with lovely exotic animals. So, I ended up wrapping the hair and eyebrows with mud(thanks to our super multi-talented make-up artist) and less just flawless make-up to really make the accessories the star of the shoot. My main goal was no editing as much as possible should be done and all animals should be caught on wherever position they should be, and with our photographer's amazingness, we made it and guess what, we did it in no time at all. Thanks to the wonderful team especially our model who did it flawlessly making it easier to direct.
