Phoemela Baranda is one of the most enduring figures in the fashion scene, and she has crossed over just as well into showbiz. Holding duties as host of Umagang Kay Ganda and The Buzz and president of the Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP), Phoem does a mean balancing act! But despite her hectic sched, she still manages to look cool, chic, and classy whenever we spot her working the crowd at events.
When we caught up with her during the launch of a luxe salon, we couldn’t keep our eyes off her spiked snakeskin miniaudiere, which was tres edgy--pun intended! (To add to your fash vocab, the miniaudiere is an alternative accessory to a purse or evening bag, perfect for carrying retouch essentials when partying the night away.)
